"If you gave me a choice between carrying a dragon on my back up the tallest mountain or trying to change a Dwarf's mind, I would ask you what color dragon you want me to carry."Dwarves are notoriously stubborn and are difficult to convince to other ways of thinking. They are also well known for carrying grudges...a slight against a Dwarf could last through several generations and some family clans have been at odds for so long they're unsure where it all began. These two qualities coupled with their general gruffness can make socializing and good company difficult to find. Orcs are their most hated enemy, often attacked the rare times they leave their mountains. Dwarves are also a favored prisoner of the Orc, the latter of which will often torture and humiliate the stout figure. Beard scalping is a favorite past time to the greenskins. Although Elves are not favored and often disregarded, they are also not attacked and allowed to step foot into Dwarven cities. Generally are seen as too prissy and frail, though it is possible for the two to form a bond, especially if it is forged in the flames of war or adventuring. Dwarves favor Humans the most, especially the Haathun, and are often to choose their kingdoms as the first place to settle should they strike out from their homes.
Dwarves generally prefer meat and will often snub their nose at green vegetables. Potatoes or other roots are fine, normally cut into a stew or offered as a side at best, but sausages and steak are their main meal, and no meal is complete without a hearty brew, of which there are plenty of competing favorites to choose from.
