Dwarf, Ankhuran

According to some scholars the Ankhurans were the first dwarves and all other subraces of dwarves have evolved to fit new environments. If this is true the Ankhurans do not say for they are a secretive people. Little is even known about their religion, though it is said that they worship a single god. Despite this secretive nature, they are far from isolationist. They have sent warriors and stone-scholars to both allies to aid them in their defense.

Arcane Masters

The Ankhurans are one of the oldest races, though they refuse to speak of their origins and answer any inquires with a simple, “we have always been here”. In that time they have amassed much lore, especially that of the mystical workings of the universe. It is this mastery of the arcane, and the elder secrets that the stonescholars keep hidden away, that helped to defeat the ogre mage Amnu-Paket and bind him away for, hopefully, eternity.

Secretive

There are few known entrances to the land of the Ankhurans, and even those are carefully hidden and guarded. They do not like strangers to come to their kingdom beneath the mountains, though they are not standoffish. The Ankhurans are happy to deal with humans and other surface dwellers, provided that their allies respect the Ankhurans’ privacy and meet them on the surface.

Racial Traits

  • Ability Score Modifiers: +2 Constitution, +2 Intelligence, -2 Charisma: Ankhuran Dwarves are both tough and intelligent, but also a bit gruff. This ability replaces the standard dwarf ability score modifiers.
  • Ancient lore: You gain a +2 racial bonus to Knowledge (Arcana) and Knowledge (History). This ability replaces greed and stonecunning.
  • Languages. You can read, speak, and write Ankhuran and Common. Ankhuran is similar in both speech and script to Dwarven, but has enough major differences to make the two languages mutually unintelligible. Ankhuran Dwarves with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Dwarf, Giant, Gnome, Goblin, Orc, Terran, and Undercommon.
