The dwarven population of the Lastlands is ageing. History and myth claim that a great number of dwarves settled the Lastlands originally, but since then, the low dwarven birthrate has meant that the population is getting gradually smaller and older. It is unclear as to whether there are Duergar in the Lastlands. None have been counted in any census or are admitted to by other dwarves, but persistent rumors place small numbers in the occasional dwarven mining community.
Beyond that, the dwarves remain much like they always have on other worlds: obsessed with mining and smithing and their deities. The one difference is that there are no dwarven clans in the Lastlands. Most dwarves go by one name or, if they need a second name, use the name of the city or settlement where they were born or possibly a nickname they have acquired.
Most dwarves believe that their god Moradin gave them the Lastlands as a gift for their faithful service to him. Certain the exceptionally rich, virgin veins of ore in the Barrier Range seem to support this assertion, at least to the Dwarven point of view. Because of the rich mining, they have settled largely along the Barrier Range and set up mining and smithing operations there. The most influential dwarf in the Lastlands is Gorunn of Keln.
