Norway.

The Jewish bit.
They have a Semitic language, they love gold, and they're often exiled from their homeland.

fuck off with this meme, literally no setting does this except tolkien's

>literally no setting does this except the one that everyone except one block of MtG stole their dwarves from
>>
>>45105452
the dwarves being jewish influenced is like an obscure part of tolkien's books. you'd have to know something about language construction or recognise the calendar to catch that

But yeah no setting actually models their dwarves after jews. fuck off to /pol/

Peebles

Probably the one with mountains
captcha is pics of mountains

>>45105374
There's more than one part of Scotland?

>>45105374
Whatever part you want, or none.

I know warcraft used to before they got all archaeological.

Warhammer

This is actually correct
>>
>>45106882
yes, clearly the faction that apes norse and celtic visual cues right down to the horned helmets and pictish tattoos is based on the hebrews

are you fucking retarded?
>>
>>45105374
The one that has pants.
>>
>>45105374
The Lowlands.
>>
>>45106910
so that would make them lowlanders, wouldn't it?
>>
>>45106919
>>45106923
Well, they do usually live underground. That's a pretty low land.

>using Scottish Dwarves
I bet you're the same kind of people who use a 9 point alignment system.

>>45106950
>not using the traditional alignment

sounds edgy desu
>>
>>45106905
Not visually but they love gold and try to recover their mountains full of treasures (Mount Sinai). Their beards are sacred just like orthodox jews' beards.They are pretty autistic, which is a jew stereotype in the west. And their archnemesis are also semitic: muslim goblins, mesopotamic dwarfs and phoenician elves. They also fight a lot against skavens who are nazi rats.
>>
Switzerland has some pretty standard dwarves in their folk lore. They're mostly magical hunters though.
>>
>>45106977
swiss people are pretty much standard dwarves themselves. living in the mountains hoarding gold and building complicated mechanical devices.
>>
>>45105374
The pub.

>>45106702
Discworld

>>45107777
Also everyone is armed to the teeth.
>>
>>45105374
not from Scotland, they are from Norse mythology.
>>
>>45105374
The Balkans.
>>
>>45105374
Actually I usually give them Icelandic or Norse accents, mostly because Irish already goes to Druidic and Welsh to Sylvan, and I'm not certain I can keep my Scottish accent distinct enough from the other two.

>>45106702
Stereotypical Tolkien-esque dwarf found elsehwere?

Literally every setting with dwarves. Mystara, Greyhawk, Eberron, The Realms, the original German and Norse myths, Wagnerian opera (Ring Cycle, son), Warhammer, WarCraft, Order of the Stick, Record of Lodoss War, Is It Wrong to Try and Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon, the Black Dwarfs in Narnia, Riftwar Cycle, Bahzell Trilogy, Darkangel Trilogy, Discworld...

Fuck, Tyrion in A Song of Ice and Fire, despite there not being a "dwarf" race. He fights fiercely with an axe, drinks a lot, makes a big deal about Casterly Rock and its gold mines being his rightful inheritance, holds grudges like no one else, has a huge temper problem, gets snuck past the wall of a merchant's mansion in a barrel...
>>
Isle of Skye

>capatcha is fucking mountains
>>
>>45108812
Tyrion is just a small jew, not dwarven.
>>
>>45105476
Neither do they model them after Scots, instead modelling them on Vikings and Norsemen

They should be modelled on Yorkshire Miners and Craftsmen, Fred Dibnah style dwarves, fearless and fucking awesome.
>>
>>45105374
It's pretty underground. You probably haven't heard of it.
>>
>>45108934
I get it and I tried to find it amusing but didn't.

>>45106977

Checked those sevens

>>45108917
But dwarfs are jews, anon.
>>
>>45105374
The German part with weird scottish accents
>smiths
>beer
>craftsmen
Surely this is obvious
>>
>>45108812
The idea was to find settings where Dwarves were obviously inspired by Jews. Not just what settings ripped off Tolkien.

>>45106965
And not like this where you just take a bunch of non-specific stereotypes and do mental gymnastics to have them apply. Something like in Tolkien where their language is Semitic and their rituals are based on Semitic culture.
>>
>>45109082
Most Dwarves are based on Tolkiens Dwarves, so like it or not they are at root inspired by the Jews

What settings did not rip off Tolkien? Dwarves are a staple archetype of the fantasy genre
>>
>>45105374
The origin of dwarves comes from Germany and Scandinavia, and matches up with what would have been their perception of smaller, hairer foreigners with advanced metalworking, if three qualities are heavily exaggerated.

The Scottish accent for dwarves meme is new but archetypal dwarves don't match up with anything Scottish except maybe a love of drink, which could be said about Germans and Scandinavians as well.
>>
>>45109203
I just genuinely don't agree with that. What makes Tolkien's Dwarves so Jewish is completely missing in the ripoffs that came after.
>>
>>45109203
>so like it or not they are at root inspired by the Jews
Is there anything jewish about them except liking gold?
And does the whole gold-fixation really come from the jews or was it just to set them up against dragons?

>>45109288
>The origin of dwarves comes from Germany and Scandinavia, and matches up with what would have been their perception of smaller, hairer foreigners with advanced metalworking, if three qualities are heavily exaggerated.
This, basically
>>
>>45109303
Another anon here. I see no problem with looking to Tolkien's dwarves and basing yours on qualities that other world authors have not. It really comes down to whether this topic is about how to build your own dwarves, or how to play one/represent them from a preexisting setting. No reason it can't be both, in my mind anyway
>>
>>45109082
>writting down everything people did against your culture
Literally the Bible
>>
>>45109303
What exactly makes tolkiens dwarves "jewish"?
>>
>>45109457
1) Their language sound jewish
2) Long beards
3) Like gold
4) Small
5) Want to recover their mine-mountian from usurpers
>>
Jewish Dwarves = best Dwarves
>>
>>45109509
>1) Their language sound jewish

This is the only thing that is remotely jewish about them then.
>>
>>45105476
>Gold obsession is a major part of The Hobbit

sure, mate
>>
>>45109539
Moria is also a mountain in the bible.
>>
>>45109627
And tolkien was christian raised from a generation in which you expected educated people to know and have read the bible

>love gold

Okay buddy, whatever you say.
>>
>>45109715
Moria is not from the New Testament
>>
>>45109755
>big noses and beards
So Gandalf is a jew?
>distrustful of other races
So elves are jews?
>>
>>45109772
>Moria is not from the New Testament
So what?
Are you implying that christians back then didn't read the old testament as much as the new one?
>>
>>45109784
Exactly.
>>
>>45109035
I always do my dwarves with thick German accents for that reason. Also because I can do a German accent better than a Scottish one.

I however did.

>Exactly.
Well, you're wrong, in the good old days the old testament was a lot more popular than nowadays
>>
>>45107884
It is actually offensive to me that this post is so criminally underrated.

I have always wanted to play an elf raised by stupendously stereotypical Jewish dwarves, just so I could do my Topol impression all day every day.
