The Redemption of Rahymn
Smelter Dwarves are the most common type of dwarf, and those encountered in the Free Cities, Eve, and the Ashvadan Caliphate almost invariably belong to this type. They have tough, ruddy skin that varies in tone between off-yellow and russet, and their hair (both men and women wear long beards) ranges in color from yellow-blond to dark brown. Many smelter dwarves have lost touch with their original culture, assimilating into the cities and civilizations they find themselves living in, but all have some fondness for the arts of the miner and blacksmith, and most dwarf families have several family heirlooms in the form of axes or suits of armor, which they pass on from generation to generation. A few smelter dwarf cities can be found along the mountain ranges of [[Ash-Hael]], but no original dwarven cities exist in Ghat.
