Playing a dwarflings
Dwarflings travel the world in order to buy and sell different goods and make some money out of it. They often construct large underground settlements near commercial cities, or sometimes directly under them.
Not all of them are merchants however, many of them earn their living by stealing what they need from others. However, those thieves do have a sort of unwritten code of honor:
- Never steal from the poor.
- Never steal from the hard-working artisan.
- Never steal from an honorable warrior.
They usually prefer to steal from rich lords, or dishonest merchants. They never steal from other dwarves, no matter how rich they could be. This code was established by one of the first dwarflings to travel the world, and is largely respected in the dwarfling community.
