The dwarves homeland is far to the west, in the Skyreach mountain range, but they are present in most of the Eastern Kingdoms as well, mostly as mercenaries, craftsmen, or bankers. They have something of a rivalry with the giants (though the giants are significantly more good-natured about it) over which race is the better craftsmen, though the dwarves tend towards smithing of all kinds (weapons, armor, jewelry, etc) and the giants favor architecture, sculpture, and artistic endeavors.
