Wild Dwarf (subrace)
Dwarf dwarves... I gave them the tough skin so players could choose to leave them in their picturesque “garments” of hair without being extremely vulnerable.

For the official 3.5 Lore on this race, see Races of the Faerun p 23.

Wild dwarves, also known as “dur Authalar”, are little known inhabitants of jungles, dense forest and bushland. They have rejected the civilized ways of other dwarves, and live a subsistence lifestyle in the wild, grouped into small hunting parties.
They wear little clothing, instead relying mostly on their long woven hair and beards to serve as a garment, as well as their leathery skin to ward off thorns, claws and biting insects. Should they happen to meet a mountain or hill dwarf, they would no doubt consider it soft, and pampered— unfit for the constant struggle of life.
