That's just... are you even serious?



Yes, I'm serious.

That's a Dwemer.

Bethesda was not only too lazy to make the dwarves actual dwarves, they were also too lazy to give them a proper story. I bet Todd Howard really wanted dwarves in his Elder Scrolls universe but was so disappointed when not one developer actually knew what a dwarf ****ing looked like, that he made up a bull**** story about how they mysteriously vanished.

Also, here's a Snow Elf:

Or they wanted to have unique "dwarves" and not follow the typical fantasy mold.

Also, we know what happened to the Dwemer, and it's a very TES-ish story.

"unique dwarves"

*Looks like every other knife ear in the game. *

Whatever, I usually don't argue with fanboys.

Later Urag.

DA:O Dwarves. They've been beseiged by Darkspawn for so many centuries. They fight a losing battle, with almost no hope of winning, yet they still fight on. That's just badass imo.

They ain't perfect though, with that insane amount of political in fighting... But they're still amazing. Dwarven Noble origin FTW.

DA:O Dwarves can't make golems anymore. As far as we know, the ES Dwarves never lost that ability. In fact, they were in the process of creating the biggest one yet, the Brass God, when they disappeared.

They say that a dead man tells no tales. I disagree. They tell tales all the time, we just have to learn to listen.

I choose option 3. D&D dwarves. Can't beat guys like Flint Fireforge (Dragonlance), Bruenor Battlehammer and Athrogate (Forgotten Realms)

Would be more badass if the PC didnt show up and OHK all the dread darkspawn.

Would also be more badass if it wasnt linear new age bioware nonsense full of romantic options.
LET ME ROMANCE DWARVES PLOX I AM 13.

More like, they created it, and later became part of it. Can't beat that.

DA Dwarves are the Golems as well.

They're made by pounding Dwarves on the Anvil of the Void. And not the fun kind of pounding.
