Dwarf Subrace[edit]

The origin of the Elemental Born dwarves is considered to be a mystery. Was their power given to them by the gods or were they cursed with these powers? What is known about there origin, is that they are closely related to elemental plains of earth, fire, water and air. Elemental Born dwarves typically live in locations that represent their element. Since their forms are affected by their elements, they have personality's that match their elements as follows: fire being cocky and quick to anger, earth being stoic and slow, air being fast, quick-thinking, and excitable, and water being wise and free. While most Elemental Born dwarves follow these examples, some do break the common rule of these traits.
