Dwarves, Mithral (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Mithral Dwarves are a proud and stern race and were made to be sturdy to resist the dangers of their time. They were physically stronger than humans and normal dwarves, and had great endurance, especially in the ability to resist great heat, cold, and especially damage and fatigue. Mithral Dwarves live up to five hundred and fifty years and have the ability to learn new skills quickly. Mithral Dwarves were blessed by the great god Moradin blessed one dwarven woman with his strength and vigor and she gave birth to the first Mithral Dwarf.
The mithral dwarves are on average 4 1/2 feet which are taller than other dwarves. They are also more muscular than all the other dwarves. They are a rare subrace dwarf in all of Faerûn. They have light skin and grey or silvery blue eyes with long light brown or red hair. Most males and even some females have large beards and mustaches. The females are slightly shorter and less heavy than the males. Most males have a mithral inlaid battlescar, brand, or tattoo.
Most mithral dwarves are of a lawful alignment, because of their well organized society. But the mithral dwarves that are wanderer's or great warriors can be of any alignment cause they dont always fit the mold.
The ancestral homelands of the mithral dwarves are located primarily in the North. Mithral dwarves can also be found in Damara, Vaasa, the Vast, and the Western Heartlands. Of all their strongholds, the most important is likely Citadel Adbar, formerly a part of Luruar.
Presented here is a list of locations inhabited at one time by the mithral dwarves. Very few remain in present-day Faerûn.

Mithral dwarves speak Dwarven, which has its own runic script. Dwarven literature is marked by comprehensive histories of kingdoms and wars.
