By virtue of land covered and number of colonies settled, dwarves are the most well-traveled race in the world. They are commonly found in the Dyrwood, the Vailian Republics, and almost any colonized land. Dwarves are known for their great strength and tenacity.

Mountain Dwarves (Aptapo) originated on the continent of Aedyr in the Old Empires, but had disappeared from those lands long before humans and elves arrived there. They have spread rapidly
throughout the world over the millennia due to their instinctive drive to explore and migrate. While mountain dwarves do form settlements and even small nations, they are more often found within other cultures, most commonly Old Vailia, the Vailian Republics, and the Dyrwood.
Mountain dwarves are the most well-traveled race in Eora. Their incredible journeys have exposed them to all manner of lethal hazards, giving them resistance to Constitution Afflictions.
Most boreal dwarves (Enutanik) live in the remote southern island of Naasitaq, where they share the rocky tundra and snow-covered forests with migratory pale elves and the coast-hugging ships of aumaua. Like their northern cousins, Enutanik share an instinctive love of exploration. Boreal dwarves are most commonly encountered in The White that Wends or the southern reaches of the Deadfire Archipelago and are only rarely seen in other lands.
In boreal dwarf lands, primordial creatures (oozes, fungi, and plants) and wilder (ogres, skuldrs, trolls, vithrack, and xaurips) have long preyed on hunters. Generations of conflict have given the boreal dwarves an increased chance to Graze against them, rather than Miss.
