The Menhirs of the Anayon
The Dwarven race, or Arkayon, are a gregarious lot, unlike the dour and taciturn dwarves portrayed in other fantasy works.
Dwarves in this world are somewhat less rare than Elves in human circles. Some among other races consider them to be arrogant, gregarious blowhards, though there are notable serious and sober exceptions. Humans and Dwarves tend to get along well. There’s never been well-documented animosity between Dwarves and Elves, since Elves are rarely seen and within the last 2000 years have mostly keep to themselves. The Dwarves and Elves have never been in fierce competition over the same resources and lands.
