  • [2E] Dark Eras - Norse Dwarves

    Seeing now God of War ( IV ) from 2018 I really like idea of Norse Dwarven craftsmen in it to use in historical Norse or modern Scandinavia chronicle. I wonder how to recreate them in CtL - using 2E Kickstarter previews ( that are more or less final game, probably ) they would probably be Wizened Seeming, but what else mechanical stuff you can point me to? Probably they would also have Small-Framed Merit, as they are 'as small as children', according to Norse myths.

    Some video game inspirations for them:

    Not dwarf specific, but Hellblade felt very Changeling, and was based on Norse myth.
    For dwarves specifically, I would say a bonus to crafts checks with metals (with the obvious exception of cold iron)

      Are hobgoblins also universally vulnerable to Iron? Because it seems like Dwarves might be a race of Hobgoblins instead of a bunch of Changelings all looking the same (TvTropes warning).

        "As small as children" is thought to be a relatively modern development. The Hedge and Arcadia does develop along with myths so in modern days changelings or hobgoblins based on dwarfs would be short, but if you use them in historical Norse settings they'd probably be human-sized instead. Another tip for historical settings: Dwarfs were most likely synonymous with svartalfs, so researching svartalfs might get you more historically accurate information.

          Fae powers in general don't help with iron, but the specific baneful state of cold iron is particular to the True Fae and the Lost.

              Yup, though the nomenclature's shifted such that "cold iron" refers to what 1e called hand-forged iron.
