Available Races/Species

Quick post before I have to get ready for work. These are the template write-ups for the various and sundry races that my players picked from when they were making their characters. I ended up with something of an oddball crew but one of the great things about GURPS is that they'll end up dealing with it in a more concrete way then if this were a D&D game.

Dwarves
As enduring as the earth from which they were shaped, the Stout Folk once ruled vast empires that sprawled on and beneath the surface of Faerun. After centuries of decline, most dwarven kingdoms are gone, but the fruits of their labors survive, unbowed by the passage of time.
