Dwarf Paragon

(Unearthed Arcana variant, p. 33)

Known for their skill in warfare, their ability to withstand physical and magical punishment, and their great love of stone and stonework, dwarves grow as strong as their mountain homes. Dwarf paragons exemplify this strength, gaining a deeper intuitive understanding of stone and stonework, building upon their already proven toughness, and promoting the crafts and strengths of their people whenever possible.

Dwarf paragons are doughty warriors, and powerful paragons often take the lead in battles as well as diplomatic engagements.
