The Redemption of Rahymn
Amethyst Dwarves are quiet and taciturn, generally shy of outsiders though not actually hostile. Almost their entire race lives in the Skatlvind mountains on the western side of Vordhyal, in enormous mine-cities sunk into the hearts of mountains. Their skin is generaly pale gray, though some tend towards white and a rare few, considered blessed from birth, show hints of the violet hue which gives them their name. Their hair is black, gray, or white, and the women do not have beards. They place great cultural emphasis on introspection, careful decision-making, and loyalty to clan and mine. Gemstones are the fascination of amethyst dwarves, and the axes they pass down are usually thickly encrusted and not particularly serviceable for battle.
