Dracobellum; The Great War
To Humans, Dwarves are stubborn and hardworking, creating the joke that Dwarves are actually half mountain goat. They are incredibly precise in their labor, and dwarven work is of the highest quality
To Elves, dwarves are the only species that could really threaten them, with a military strong enough to plow through the Bay and still put up a fight. They respect dwarves out of fear more than any common ground.
To Halflings, Dwarves are uncivilized brutes who, by some miracle of the gods, produce the finest craftsmanship in the world. They tolorate dwarves, as long as they keep their strange ways and disgusting eating habits to themselves
