Mountain dwarves are the reclusive residents of Kul Garum. Occasionally one will leave the mountain home, but isn’t likely to be allowed back in the gates.
Hill dwarves are the descendants of these more cosmopolitan dwarves. They live among the other major civilizations, occasionally forming little ethnic townships and districts. The average hill dwarf thinks of himself as a Canoner or Valish before thinking of himself as a dwarf.
