Dwarves are a proud race of long lived machinists, With a history that extends back to their contact with early space -faring humans. Long ago, their golden age of expansion was cut short when a global disaster brought them to ruin and toxic fallout sterilized attempts at re-population. They would have gone extinct in a generations time had a lucky expedition not turned up an ancient and expansive array of cloning technology left behind in ruins built deep into their home world. They now thrive, amidst a planet that’s been mostly hollowed out by massive construction projects.
