The Resistance in Engenstut County knows little of dwarves. They are a stout, hardy, and muscular people with a habit of wearing long beards. They live on, or perhaps in, the mountains. They are still free of the Empire of Night, but are under constant siege, and are hard-pressed and loosing ground. Every year, in daily desperate fights in the passes and in the mining tunnels, the Dwarves kill dozens of orcs and lose one of their number and count themselves as having made a poor trade.
The Dwarves have taken Minotaur refugees, but neither race appreciates the forced alliance. Minotaurs find dwarven halls to be dank, cramped, and stifling, while Dwarves feel the refugees don't contribute much to their defensive battles but do eat a lot of food.
The rare Dwarven refugee sometimes make his way to Engenstut and is smuggled into the Visten forest. The Tzavarim avoid the small dwarven communities and the Resistance generally loses track of them as they migrate to avoid orcish incursions.
