Hill dwarves have long forgotten their mountain homes, and, in fact, if you asked them they would tell you they always lived “in these hills”. They are usually around 4ft tall and weigh as humans do, making them quite bulky.

Opposed to their mountain counterparts, they are much more friendly and open to cooperating with other races. While they still have many craftsmen among their ranks, hill dwarves are also traders and fortune seekers, even ready to find a new home.

They adore gold and all sorts of precious metals, crafting wondrous jewelry out of it. They honor traditions and are known to be reserved, often having set goals given to them at an early age. Arranged marriages happen often as well.
