Mr. Perpetually Behind the Curve here, and I want to point out how nifty I find this setting from back in FO! #5 - especially the artwork; I don't recall offhand who did it, but at first I was all like "THESE are DWARVES?" and, then when I thought about it for awhile, I decided I liked the idea of non-"short 'n' dumpy" dwarves.
If you wonder how PCs eat and breathe And other science facts Just repeat to yourself, "It's just a game I should really just relax!"
