War of Karak Ankor ~ Hammerer

“Though our past has soured relations between our peoples, the dwarves are similar in many ways to the elves. In times of peace they pursue many civilian duties, but when war calls they don their armor and sturdy weapons and fight for the survival of their realm. The hammerers are in some ways the unsung heroes of Karak Ankor, toiling on the railways in times of peace, and fighting with all their blood to protect the vital arteries of the realm.”

~ Prince Thytheolir of Eataine
