The Thrumgolz Dwarves

Image description.

The Thrumgolzerim (short: Thrumgolz) are stocky, stubborn humanoids, of human intelligence but much longer lifespan. They stand about one to one and a half peds tall, and run about four spans across the shoulders. They are barrel-chested, full-stomached, and heavily-boned, the males as well as the females. Dwarven bones are on the whole denser than human, making them far less prone to breakage, but also rendering them poor swimmers. Image drawn by Quellion.
