Thanks Sean for the comments, I have always liked the dwarves and wanted
them to have a special place
in this universe. Still working on some of the *new* tech for them, but I
don't want to get to far away
from the magic end of it.

I see magic just starting to wan in this universe, but not significantly.
Still it's enough for some of the gods to pass on the the astral plane, and
for others to be
concerned.

The dwarves have always had a special place in creating magical items,
especially
weapons and I don't want to take that away from them.
I am visualizing maybe a split within the dwarven community, some sticking
to the old ways and others
jumping headfirst (as only a dwarf can do) into the new technology.
Again thanks for the comments.
