With a heavy pick slung over his shoulder, the bearded miner heads deep into the earth in search of precious metals and gemstones. The smith swings his hammer again and again, beating half-molten metal into cleaving axes and crushing hammers. Crouched in the stygian depths of the underland, a lone scout watches as his enemies prowl past and waits for his chance to strike. Burrowing through the underland, a merchant guides his caravan toward the Silverbore and the riches beyond.

Each of these is an example of a dwarf, a race with a rich history in fantasy and mythology. The Quintessential Dwarf is a sourcebook designed to expand the options available to characters of this race, opening new vistas for a character type that has long been pigeonholed as nothing more than the dour counterpoint to the more elegant elf.

While not as pretty as an elf or as quick as a gnome, the dwarf is the heartiest of all races. His health is legendary and his resistance to poisons and spells keep him standing when others fall. Combined with the dwarven work ethic, these natural abilities make this race one that simply will not quit when the going gets tough. Forged in the dark fires far below the surface, dwarves are much more than they first appear, with great warriors among their number but also a growing population of wizards, rogues, and even druids rising to positions of power in dwarven culture. Within the pages of this book you'll find the information you need as a player to make the most of your dwarven character, allowing him to grow and develop in new and exciting ways.
