Dwarves have no gender or sexual dimorphism, they all look like smol chunky bois with luscious hair and beards
they have children by finding special stones in the mines they have in their mountain, and breathing life into them through a spiritual ritual and subsequent celebration. they’re born bald but quickly start growing hair, and they choose a name for themself when they first braid their beard
dwarves form chosen family units based on close emotional bonds, and live in semi-subterranean villages of about 40-50 dwarves, but each village is close together and dwarves often travel to other villages, as they are all situated around the one mountain
sometimes one or two family units will leave a village and start a new one, as to not make one village too big as they like to preserve small, close-knit communities, though they still keep regular contact with the other villages
they farm a special grain underground, where the geothermal energy from the mountain helps them grow, which provides the main basis of their diet, either baked into loaves of bread or brewed into ale
dwarves live for hundreds of years, but when they do die, a funeral ceremony is held at the peak of the mountain, and the body sealed in a tomb to be reclaimed by the mountain
the mountain is rocky and seemingly barren, but this is fertile ground for dwarves to thrive in
the geothermal heat provides energy and keeps them warm, it also prevents snow from falling on the peak
their runic writing system is originally logographic (symbol = word), but was later expanded into an alphabet as well, to make communication with outsiders easier
they are a friendly and welcoming people, and always enjoy visitors, and will often throw a small feast for them
though hopefully you know dwarvic if you want a conversation, as most dwarves only understand the most basic parts of other languages, like hello and stuff
