 +====== Mountain Dwarf ======
  
 +The mountain dwarves of Gaeleth tend to be the largest of the subraces, topping out near five feet in height and some ten stone in weight. ​ Mountain dwarves tend to stay within their mountain fastnesses -- and sometimes below them -- creating massive mining complexes and foundries. ​ They trade with the surface world for food and furs, using their metals --worked and precious and raw -- as good coin wherever they exist. ​ They often form good relations with nearby peoples, and build up good trade networks.
 +
 +Mountain dwarves are easily recognized by their red to auburn hair, light-colored eyes, and larger stature than other dwarves. ​ Strawberry-blond and blond hair are not unknown among the mountain dwarves, either.
 +
 +Mountain dwarves also tend to be the most mercurial of dwarves, closing their mountain fastnesses up for perceived slights or the slightest deviation from litigious doctrine. ​ History is full of human nations that collapsed after the mountain dwarves within their kingdom bottling up and refusing to come out for a whole dwarven generation, using prodigious stores built up and salted and preserved for long periods of time.
