Hill dwarf

Often seen by mountain dwarves as dwarves that aren't real dwarves. They live in stone houses on the surfaces and in houses built into small hills similar to halflings.   They live in these communities and believe one shouldn't be seen as less of ones race simply by the way one builds their towns. Hill dwarves say that it is a lot faster to build hill dwarf towns and a lot cheaper too, which is certainly true but the mountain dwarves think it is extremely unsafe to live like this and one looses what makes someone a dwarf, good mountain homes and feasts in large dining halls with the rest of the community.   Hill dwarves often have access to more trade opportunities due to the nature of their towns.
