Dwarf is a player character race in 4th edition Dungeons & Dragons.[PH:36][HotFL:248]

Racial traitsEdit

Dwarves have the following racial traits.

Cast-Iron Stomach
+5 racial bonus to saving throws against poison.
Dwarven Resilience
You can use your second wind as a minor action instead of a standard action.
Dwarven Weapon Proficiency
You gain proficiency with the throwing hammer and the warhammer.
Encumbered Speed
You move at your normal speed even when it would normally be reduced by armor or a heavy load. Other effects that limit speed (such as difficult terrain or magical effects) affect you normally.
Stand Your Ground
When an effect forces you to move—through a pull, a push, or a slide—you can move 1 square less than the effect specifies. This means an effect that normally pulls, pushes, or slides a target 1 square does not force you to move unless you want to.
In addition, when an attack would knock you prone, you can immediately make a saving throw to avoid falling prone.

DevelopmentEdit

The dwarf ability bonus was originally +2 Constitution and +2 Wisdom.[PH:36] The Essentials update and subsequent books changed the bonus to +2 Constitution, and either +2 Strength or +2 Wisdom.[U:E]

The Neverwinter Campaign Setting introduced the concept of subraces, as well as the dwarf subraces gold dwarf[NCS:49] and shield dwarf.[NCS:50]
