Final Fantasy

Concept art of dwarves in Final Fantasy.

Mount Duergar is the home of the dwarves. One of the dwarves, Nerrick, after being given Nitro Powder blows up a rock, creating a canal that allows the Warriors of Light to leave the Aldean Sea and reach Melmond.

Final Fantasy III

The Dwarves inhabit the underground caverns of Dwarven Hollows and many say "Lali-ho!" When the party first visits them, they are dismayed by the stealing of one of the Horns of Ice from their sacred shrine by "that rascal Gutsco."

Final Fantasy IV

The Dwarves live in The Dwarves' Castle and the tiny city of Tomra in the Underworld. The dwarves of the castle say "Lali-ho", while the dwarves of Tomra say "Hi-ho".

They are ruled by a king named Giott and his daughter, Luca, and are protectors of one of the Dark Crystals. They use tanks as their main weapon. All female Dwarves act as nurses, and they heal Cid Pollendina after he is wounded.

Cecil Harvey, Kain Highwind, Rosa Joanna Farrell, Yang Fang Leiden, and Cid arrive at the Dwarves' Castle at about the time Golbez and the Red Wings are attempting to steal their Crystal. Cecil and his friends offer their help, and Giott accepts. Giott announces that the Crystal is still safe, but Yang senses something strange in the Crystal room. Luca's dolls, the Calcabrina, have become possessed by Golbez. Giott lets the party into the back to defeat them. They succeed, but then Golbez appears, and after a long battle, he steals the Crystal. Giott then announces that the last Crystal is in the Sealed Cave which Golbez cannot open. He then says that it is a good time to reclaim the other Crystals in the Tower of Babil. He orders his tanks to create a diversion so that Cecil may enter the tower.

Cecil's party fails to acquire the other Crystals, and they return to the Dwarves' Castle. Giott decides that it is time to open the Sealed Cave. He orders Luca to give Cecil her necklace, which is the key to opening the Sealed Cave. However, Golbez steals that Crystal, too. Giott then tells Cecil about the Lunar Whale that was alluded to in the Mysidian Legend. The Dwarves do not know that Mysidia exists, but Cecil does.

The Dwarves' tanks appear in the battle with the Giant of Babil, likely one of the few times in the world's history that they are seen above-ground.

Final Fantasy V

The Dwarves appear in the Great Sea Trench where they manage a small town, and are attempting to dig a long tunnel. A Dwarf named Rallybo feels something directly above him, though he is actually alluding to the Phantom Village. They claim to be part of a great nation, though only five or so are actually seen.

Final Fantasy IX

Several dwarves seated at Conde Petie's inn.

The Dwarves live in a town called Conde Petie. In this game, their password is "Rally-ho!" They hold the institution of marriage to be sacred, and only allow those who have gotten married to travel to the Sanctuary. This forces Zidane and Dagger, and possibly Vivi and Quina to have weddings. The dwarves also trade with "aware" black mages who inhabit a village in the forest to the south.

Other Appearances

Final Fantasy Adventure

The Dwarves live in Dwarf Cave. The player meets a Dwarf named Watts in the Mithril Mine, and he joins up temporarily. Watts appears in other Mana series games as well, such as Secret of Mana and Legend of Mana.

Chrono Cross

In Chrono Cross, dwarves live in the Hydra Marshes. When the party kills the last living Hydra, it fortunately was pregnant at the time, and the baby was successfully birthed post-mortem. It was taken care of by the Dwarves thereafter, granting the marshes some degree of hope for the future.

The dwarves prominently say "Hi-ho" as well, and are similar in appearance to the dwarves of Final Fantasy IV.

From GuildWiki

a typical Dwarf

The Dwarves are a species of short, stout humanoid people that inhabit the Shiverpeak Mountains.

Unlike the exploratory nature of humans, Dwarves like to keep to themselves and prefer not to mix with other races. Good dwarves share a strong sense of honor and hospitality, but a general mistrust of outsiders. Still, their amazing skills as miners and crafters and their shrewd sense of trade means that they almost always open their lands to trade with humans.

Dwarves are very fond of their ale and their hammers and axes. They use Dolyaks as their farm animals and to ride them. They build ice ships to cruise the frozen lakes, rivers and even the sea shores of the Shiverpeaks.

The Deldrimor generally worship the Great Dwarf, and believe that he created the first dwarves at Anvil Rock. Some Dwarves also worship Dwayna or Grenth. The Brotherhood of the Dragon also seek wisdom from Glint, but do not worship her. Some members of the Stone Summit, including Hierophant Morlog, appear to worship the Great Destroyer.

In the world of Guild Wars, Dwarves are represented by the nation of Deldrimor and the xenophobic and violent group, the Stone Summit. Like many other role-playing games, dwarven women are either no where to be seen in everyday dwarven life, or, like the dwarves of Middle Earth, Discworld and certain D&D campaign worlds, they are largely indistinguishable from the males. In Sorrow's Furnace, near where the Dredge slaves are working, you may see one of them say "I wonder what a female dwarf looks like? Do they have beards too?".

Dwarves in Cantha

The Aurios Mines contain relics which are suspected to be from an offshoot of the Deldrimor Dwarves, however dwarves do not appear to have a presence in modern Cantha.

Dwarves in the Depths of Tyria

The Deldrimor Dwarves also have a presence in the Depths of Tyria.

History

Dwarves are smaller in stature than the gods, and have squat, stocky bodies. Their average height is four feet. The Dwarves tend to be craftsmen and farmers who maintain friendly trade and peace relations with the Gods. Dwarves dwell in the land of Nidavellir, which is part of the landmass where Asgard and Vanaheim are situated. Dwarves have crafted such Asgardian weapons as the hammer Mjolnir and the spear Gungnir, although it was the magic of Odin that imbued these objects with their special enchantments. Dwarves are the race that have crafted most of the weapons and enchanted items for the gods. Including Mjolnir, Gungnir, and Stormbreaker.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Dwarf
The Dwarves are one of many races in RuneScape. They live predominately in Keldagrim, their capital city, but are also found in various mines and settlements across Gielinor.
A male dwarf

In stature, Dwarves tend to be shorter than humans, usually being slightly above human-waist height. They are long-lived, although they tend to be gruff and short in temper[1] . They are particularly fond of ale and often have long beards. Dwarves are particularly well known for being excellent blacksmiths, miners, and craftsman. Dwarves often use battleaxes and warhammers of all kinds, though some also use crossbows.

History

A female dwarf

Before the God Wars, dwarves were most likely a sub-race of humans, made by Guthix for a strange purpose. They are possibly also related to gnomes. The dwarves probably lived on the surface, in villages like the humans. However, the wars sent the dwarves underground. During the God Wars, most dwarves hid themselves beneath the surface. Over time they constructed Keldagrim, a massive city that has grown tremendously wealthy. Dwarves adapted to underground life in this time. During the Fourth age (although Dwarves use different ages to humans) King Alvis created the consortium, a collection of mining companies. It was originally intended to help the Kings rule, but by King Alvis's death it had become powerful and took over Keldagrim. This occurred approximately 500 years since the present date. Only after thousands of years, during the Fifth Age, did the dwarves return to the surface to find the wars over, despite this most dwarves still live underground.

Dwarven culture consists mostly of feasting, sparring, and songs of great deeds long ago. The dwarven capital of Keldagrim is more advanced, and has many industrial works, banks and trading corporations. Dwarves love gold, and value it greatly; they are portrayed as greedy, which is not untrue- their people are ruled by merchants and bureaucrats. Nearly all activities in Dwarven territory, particularly Keldagrim, is based around the acquisition of wealth.

The dwarves are not religious, and although they are Guthixian, they never really worship Guthix in festivals or rituals. There is also a small and secretive cult of Dwarves in the Wilderness known as the Chaos Dwarves, who worship Zamorak. Dwarven technology is arguably greater than that of the gnomes, with mine carts, trains and cannons all being used by dwarves. Gnomes, however, generally use their technology to raise living standards, unlike Dwarves. It is revealed in the Forgettable Tale of a Drunken Dwarf that Dwarves are now incapable of magic use. They probably once had a great deal of it, but it was lost after constructing Keldagrim.

Notable Dwarves

Champions' Challenge

Dwarves are one of the 'races' who have champions of champions in the Champions' Challenge minigame. It is not currently possible to fight the dwarf champion. Many players expect a future update will allow this champion to be fought, like a 2009 update allowed Glophren, the gnome champion, to be fought.

Chathead Update

Old Dwarf Chathead

On 19 January 2010, most dwarves in RuneScape apparently "Went to the Makeover Mage" and got their chatheads updated. Their heads now look rounder, more detailed, and they move faster than before.

Tibia

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From TibiaWiki

Dwarves are a race that are very short in stature. They are well known for their Beer and Wine and are unsurpassed in their mining abilities. They consider the elves to be their greatest threat, especially because of some of the magic that the elves possess.

Dwarves do not travel very much, and are therefore found almost exclusively in and around the mountain city of Kazordoon. However, they do travel by steamship to Cormaya, where some dwarves are living. Some even found their way to the Island of Destiny

There are three existing dwarven groups:

The last (probably lost) group are Chromancers - followers of time.


Dwarven brotherhoods:


Dwarven grammar is very complicated.
