This is a wonderful submission, now I want a bearded cat! Though your dwarfs seem fuzzier by far than mine, mine would eat both rats and insects.

No obvious spelling or grammatical errors, highly creative with lots of goodies. A full score from me. Go to Comment

These are great. The tunnel-hound in particular could make for some great byplay in a scenario. Go to Comment

I will flip #11 entirely around. I think they are in the wrong order. :)

I love this idea. I would have given a +1 magic sword of fairy slaying to have this list back in the day to add so much flavor to the Dwarves. I want to play one now just so I can chime off some of these! Go to Comment

66. Even a beardless one can give good advice. (Everything's possible, you know?)



67. Even the rat has courage in her den. (Equally about desperation giving power, and knowledge of a locale giving defenders an edge.)



68. Sleeping on a stone is easy with a clean conscience.



69. A dog knows who feeds him. (Multiple interpretations, mostly insulting; may be a hint the dwarf knows about your true loyalties, or is about to rent your services. Can also refer to the cunning of some creatures or their surprising loyalty.)



70. The belly is the best clock there is.



71. Can't buy honor in the market. (Obvious meaning; but also a sigh of some itinerant clanless dwarves that wish for a more proper life.)



72. The more you put in, the more it burns. (Feeding the wrong thing, arguments, hate, etc.)



73. Tall stairs make for heavy falls. (About the occasional tendency to overreach.)



74. A dwarf is a dwarf while he keeps his word.



75. Goblins took it. (It won't ever come back, at least not in the same shape.)



76. What he builds with one hand he breaks with the other. (Fool, incompetent, but also someone capable working against himself.)



77. Master of nine crafts makes poverty his tenth. (Can't be good at everything, those who try fail.)



78. Good work praises itself.



79. Keep to the new road and an old friend.



80. Eat the mushrooms but know their names. (Know what you are getting into.)

41. Dwarven women are like a good hammer. Always ready for work, and just as able to smash a head as hammer a sword.

42. Only a fool tries to poison a dwarf. Our womans cooking could kill an Ogre, your poison is dressing to us.

43. You can't milk a stone for water, but you can crush a goblins head with one fist. (A saying that states never try to do the impossible and that killing goblins is always possible.)

44. A mead in the hand, is worth two goblin heads in a bush. (Meaning a strong drink is as good as dead goblins any day, and even better with a strong drink while doing it.) Go to Comment

45. Better to walk a dark tunnel. (Approximately "I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole," though the Dwarven phrase carries heavy connotations fell magics.)
46. He's got no dust in his beard. (Said of someone who is a layabout and worthless to society at large.)
47. You're burning your beard. (The equivalent in English would be telling someone their pants are on fire or that their nose has grown a couple inches.)
48 He could steal the braids from your beard. (Used to describe an extremely cunning dwarf.)
49. We've gone down the shaft. (Equal parts "point of no return" and "out of the frying pan and into the fire") Go to Comment

50. Life is a gem. Hard, multifaceted, and tough to hold on to


51. Make sure its charred and bleeding (expression used at one time for troll-slaying, but now refers to making sure any adversary is truly dead or dying. Strangely, also used to describe the dwarven preference for charred and rare meat.)


52. Does he seem chalky to you? (pale, disheveled, nervous)


53. You can tell a lot about a dwarf from his helm


54. Wear the rings you don't mind losing on your fingers (don't exhibit your wealth foolishly)


55. Make the tunnel come to you! (uttered by the legendary dwarven hero, Burdodd the Belcher, to a fellow sapper during an underground assault on an enemy castle, implying the dwarven superiority in sapping and mining.)


56. Clanging axes scare off ghosts. (Another example of dwarven superstitions regarding ghosts and other undead.Loud noise scares the undead.)


57. Touch my gold and die! (A tongue-in-cheek reference to dwarven hoards often being coated with poison, as a last resort at thwarting tomb-robbers)

58.

 Lo, there do I see my father. Lo, there do I see my mother, and my sisters, and my brothers. Lo, there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. Lo, they do call to me. They bid me take my place among them. In the halls of Valhalla (the Forgefather). Where the brave....may live...forever.


If that doesn't give you that dwarven tingle...nuff said.

65. There are no Dwarven ruins (you may find cities abandoned, but dwarven architecture and masonry is too superb for ruins.)
