Curious Company (Zordaria)
The Duergar, also known as Grey or dark Dwarves, share a similar origin as Tieflings. When some duergar were enslaved by Ithilids (Mind Flayers), they reached out to the Infernal Princes of Hell for power to escape their slavery. The were granted this power and in return the dwarves succumbed to Infernal Taint. Duergar have ashen grey skin and purple or red eyes. Males have poison filled quills in their beards that they can use against their enemies. Dwarves and Duergar almost always are hostile with each other. The duergar’s skill with arms and armour match the dwarves, but their style is much more militaristic and lack the artistic qualities of dwarves.
