    Which Fantasy World Has the Best dwarfs, Overall?

    As the title says, pretty simple, Dwarfs are quite a popular fantasy creature and are nearly in every fantasy book, (and of course are my fave fantasy creature in everything) video game, movies and TV show, but which universe or world has the best Dwarfs overall in your opinion?

    From what I can tell they're all pretty much the same. Short, beardy, and raging alcoholics.

    The only exception to this I can think of are Elder Scrolls dwarves, which are technically Elves. Any other exceptions to this rule?

    LOTR, definetly. They really rule there :>

    J R R Tolkien

    Dragonlance comes in behind (though many will say its just a blatant ripoff) but Flint Fireforge was just awesome.

    J.R.R Tolkien.
    This concept of wuv confuses and infuriates us.

    I'll go with elder scrolls dwemer. Otherwise, dwarves are dwarves are dwarves. Always the same.

    Middle Earth definitely. If you talk about games though, Witcher has awesome dwarves in my opinion.

    Why not Warhammer?

    They are pretty badass there.

    That's precisely why I dislike the "dwarves" from the Elder Scrolls universe, they (Bethesda) used that word for them explicitly because they are elves and not "traditional" dwarves. Why couldn't they just stick with dwemer?

    I played a bit of warhammer (not the pc game), and i thought they were pretty cool there, heavy armored units, berserkers, gun users, rune smithing, and lots of machinery, balistas, cannons and gyrocopter.

    I would say the Warhammer and Lord of the rings dwarves are the best ones, they are pretty much the same but they are everything i would imagine a dwarf to be.
