Racial Abilities

Infravision - Dwarves have infravision to 60 feet - the ability to see heat patterns given off by living warm-blooded creatures in the dark.
Melee combat - Dwarves have a +1 bonus to their attack rolls vs. orcs, half-orcs, goblins, and hobgoblins. Further, when ogres, half-ogres, ogre magi, trolls, giants, or titans fight dwarves, these aggressors suffer a -4 penalty on all attack rolls. Dwarves are small and have defensive tactics against these large foes.

Determine the approximate depth underground, 1-3 on 1d6.
Detect any sliding or shifting walls or rooms, 1-4 on 1d6.
Detect any grade or slope in the passage they are passing through, 1-5 on 1d6.
Detect stonework traps, pits, and deadfalls, 1-3 on 1d6
Detect new construction in stonework, 1-5 on 1d6.
Saving throw bonuses - Bonus to saving throws vs. poison, rods, wands, and spells based on their Constitution/Health subability score.

Character Description and History

I am stout of stature but can fight well enough to stand my ground. My beard is braided and dyed red, my iron grey hair is braided and tied back with a leather thong.

I am a merchant who trains and deals in hound (be it war hounds or hunting hounds). I have had many adventures one being with the former Blades of the Seven. They were a group who were known to enter many lands where evil reigned and after the loss and reattachment of my left hand I decided to retire from the adventuring company.

I took what wealth I had stowed away and begain to train hounds for a local Lord in Haluraa. He was impressed and asked if I would like to do this type of work. I agreed and he sponsored me with a loan to start a business.

That was twenty years ago. I have just payed off the loan and bought a small manor home north of Shadowdale. I have a minium of 10 hounds at the place all trained for war and usually travel as far as Corymr to Waterdeep. I am on the road most of the time but do stay home in the winter months if not stranded in a town.
