O.K Emma and I love the dwarfs, we each have one of each and though we are not huge Role Players we do a little light RP and probably would do more on an RP server. Most of what we do is chatting to NPC’s and having fun when handing quests in, very occasionally in a pub or when we meet some one out questing. But what we always do is what I consider to be true dwarfen behaviour, as sepcified by Tolkien. Much of what I have seen from some players out there seem to be inspired by Peter Jacksons interpretation, and what other fantasy fields have done; WOW, Games Workshop, etc etc.
Dwarfs should be honourable, well spoken, noble, stoic, darkly humerous, and above all dignified. It was whilst reading the Codemasters forum I came across this post which I think says it all very nicely, well worth a read if you are interested in dwarfs or RP!
