Dwarf, Street

Street dwarves have adapted to an urban life among other races. Street dwarves moved to the cities generations ago following a Dwarven god of travel. Since that time they have adapted and spread, and most urban areas support at least a branch of one of the great street dwarf clans.

Urban Evolved

Street dwarves are do not have as robust of a build as their mountain and hill dwelling kind. In comparison, they are far more agile. They still have a great deal of stamina and seem to be resistant to the many diseases that plague city life. Their bears are kept short and often highly decorated, and their dress fits the greater local population but with a certain dwarven flair. Street dwarves navigate the hazards and take advantage of the opportunities of city life as if they were born to it, which in a sense they were.

Shrewd Traders and Craftsmen

For the most part street dwarves fill the role of merchants and craftsmen in the cities that they live. Their clans can span across cities and nations, providing easy networks to move goods through. The natural dwarven aptitude for craftwork is not lost to them, though they do not tend to reach the heights of their mountain dwelling relatives.
