Ringo loaded the shot into his blunderbuss, keeping an eye on the bear cub. It had seemed dangerously interested in the targets a little while ago, but now was rolling on its back in the snow, playing with a large pinecone, flinging it up in the air with all four paws, then catching it, growling and...

If there's anything people would like to see in future themes, let us know. We're not up to custom-making our own top to bottom yet, but there's a lot out there we can tweak and add our own touches to.

Having said that, Beli has a few more surprises up her sleeve for the coming weeks and months ...

From other threads:

The dwarf crest from the WoW credits (good catch, Widge!)

Hopefully Nebu will make that into a wallpaper like he did the War3 crests.

Some dwarf jokes from m An Elf walks into a pub and clears his voice to the crowd of dwarven drinkers. He says, "I hear you dwarves are a bunch of hard drinkers. I'll give 500 gold to anybody in here who can drink 10 pints of extra stout back-to-back." The room is quiet, and no one takes up the elf'...

Dwarf unit quotes from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. These are just the comedic ones -- they had additional ones like "on it" and "I'm yer shooter" when you clicked for them to go somewhere. m Muradin Bronzebeard -"My older brother Magni is King of the Dwarves." -"My younger brother Brann is a rekno...

RP guide from the Mithril Warhammers (multi-game dwarf guild): http://mithrilwarhammers.org/rpguide.php

Most of the guide is race-neutral, but the author does talk about how he RPs his own dwarf. Notice how RPing is NOT sounding like a lunatic set free at a Renaissance Faire.

The pounding sounded like drums, like war drums, beaten by an orc astride a great beast, beating furiously, the sound and the vibration rattling teeth and raising hair on the scalp. But it wasn't war drums, although the sound was punctuated by screams and flashes of sickly green light and the roar o...

The Guns of Khaz Modan

It is difficult to know when things begin. In a tale or a song, there is a beginning, a middle and an end. But as my father always said, "life ain't no song, lad." Did it begin the day, two decades ago, when the Dark Portal opened in the Black Morass, letting the first orcs into the world? Did it b...

Some dwarfish words in WoW:

"Bael Modan" (a dig site in the Barrens) = "Red Mountain"
"Loch Modan" = "Mountain Lake"
"Khaz Modan" = "Mountain of Khaz" (Khaz'goroth is the Titan dwarf archeologists believe created Azeroth and the dwarves)
"Dun" = "Fortress"

Warcraft III dwarves: The Mountain Kings, or 'Thanes' as they are known in Khaz Modan, are the mightiest Dwarven warriors under the mountain. Wielding both enchanted warhammers and hand axes, these fierce fighters live to test themselves against worthy opponents. Unconcerned with their race's preocc...

The inimitable Terry Pratchett on dwarves: "You appear to be of the dwarf persuasion." Cheery didn't bother to answer. There was no use denying it. Somehow, people could tell if you were a dwarf just by looking at you. "I thought dwarfs hardly recognized the difference between male and female, anywa...

Dwarf basics

I'm going to load up this thread with as much dwarf lore as anyone might ever need. Everyone else is encouraged to add what they want as well. This isn't so much of a "how to play a dwarf" as it is "some ideas on how to play a dwarf, if you're interested."
