For the better part of the first three centuries their land of Calum stretched all across Terra Belli blocking all other races from even coming into contact with Alf Heim. However, the Humans and Sylphs along with the Elves took a great portion of their lands. this split their country in two West Calum and East Calum. These two halves remain connected through an intricate system of mines that traverse almost the entire continent below the Alf Heim border.
The dwarves made extensive use of these tunnels in the ensuing war. Once discovered the Dwarves enemies blocked all openings to these mines, or so they thought. while they couldn’t use the mines to enter their enemies territories they were still able to use them to go from one side of Calum to the other because of this both sides of Calum have remained virtually the same. They would often battle with the Orcs but after their extinction they found little reason to battle their half-breed descendants.
The Dwarves are a proud and greedy race. Their economy is based solely around what they can mine from the deep banes of minerals that cross through there territories. They are also the only race that is spread across two different countries.
The Dwarven government is most like an aristocracy. Whoever are the richest most powerful dwarves are the ones that control the countries of Calum. No Dwarf really bothers to learn their names as they change so very often, nor do they obey them, instead large squads of Dwarves often form for the purpose of invading. But what they lack in tactics they more then make up for in tenacity and brute force.
Dwarves can create enchanted armor and weapons. Items that are in high demand especially in Alf Heim where they earn more than half of their money. Today they focus primarily on invading the countries of Prospero, Marenall, and Sapieto. Dwarves single most improtant goal in warfare is to reclaim the lands that were taken from them.
