But that's just your opinion of what they would do. My opinion of what they would do would be to devise a highly honor-bound culture where people are taught that noble sacrifices are the Dwarven Way so that most of them see such behavior as normal and fitting and, when faced with a dangerous situation, do their best to preserve others' lives from accidents that would allow Hel to claim their souls—knowing that by doing so, their own souls are safe even if their bodies perish.

Which of these two opinions do you think the story will reflect?
