Alchemical Dwarves

The Dwarves of desert Country of Sang are not like the Dwarfs found elsewhere in the Land of Azurth or any other worlds. Most noticeable, they appear to be made of metal, one of the seven metals of antiquity, and they metals character informs that of the dwarf made from it. The dwarves of each metal are identical to each other, or very close to it.

Dwarves of Gold are the wise and just rulers.
Dwarves of Silver are the Priestesses, Keepers of Mysteries.
Dwarves of Mercury are the cunning mages and tricksters.
Dwarves of Copper are the healers and tenders of home and hearth.
Dwarves of Iron are the soldiers and warriors.
Dwarves of Tin are merchant, traders, and seneschals.
Dwarves of Lead are the labors and workers.

Love that art!

Are these dwarves made or born?

That's a good question, but not the sort of thing they are willing to discuss with strangers. My suspicions are the latter, but maybe it's too stark a binary.

Seeing as they are alchemical, it may be a mixture of both. In some sense, that is.

A caste system made from cast molds. What would happen is someone slipped in a little tin into the copper? A sub-race of dwarves, bronze caste? Just thoughts.
