Okay attempt 2.

Dwarves are no longer just the cave dwelling miners they are commonly seem as. They come from norse mythology so a viking theme wouldnt be out of the realm of possibility. there are a few things id like worked in though

1. As a seafaring race they would raid up adn down the coastline in their longships, looting and pillaging villages adn merchant ships alike.
2. due to their low birthrate and disparity between the numbers of males and females dwarves would be matriarchal. the females rule over the various clans as Clan Mothers, making decisions while the males (for the most part) would be the workers and warriors, like a bee hive. a dwarven woman is worth more to their race tahn a mountain of gold.
3. also due to the ratio of male/female and a life of sea travel dwarven society is completely fine with the ideas of polyandry(women having more than one husband) and homosexuality. 250-300 years is a long time to be alone.

Sea Travel and Homosexuality? They are going to love the moon gods.


Im thinking down south we have an australian themed clan of dwarves. Living in carved out Mesas etc. Very much the outdoors men of the southern desert continent. They would commonly be woodsmen, rangers, wardens, druids etc.

Probably act as guides for humans.

Down south perhaps they dont often take mates and the ratio is alittle less bad between men and woman.
