Dwarfs are the greatest race by a mile. These stoic, hardy folk embody what it means to be honorable. They are a simple, transparent people, their politics pure and free from intrigue. They create beautiful works of art, efficient tools, and brutal instruments of war that teach their foes how awful goodness is when roused to violence.
Dwarfs venerate their elders and ancestors. They honor their institutions and uphold them, while in turn the institutions themselves remain free from corruption and self-aggrandizement. They are the greatest historians, and look to the past with both reverence and for an eye to elucidate the dark paths of the future.
They are not a people of conquest, and their wealth is generated truly by the works of their hands, the strength of their backs, and the skills handed down from father to son via their clan system and not through the exploration of other races.
Dwarfs are truly the embodiment of all that is good in the world and are the best race I. Warhammer (inc. 40k).
If each of us strove to emulating dwarven values in our own lives, the world would be a much better place.
