“Why hasn’t anyone else done something like this?” That’s the first question that came to mind when I heard about We Are the Dwarves. It merges the traditional high-fantasy elements of the dwarf race with interstellar adventure – except space has a twist. The universe in We Are the Dwarves is literally made of stone and planets and stars exist in caves and hollows within the stone space. It’s like if you took a Drizzt Do’Urden Forgotten Realms book and mashed it together with Lost in Space.
In We Are the Dwarves, the stars are dying, leaving the dwarven race on the brink of extinction. Three kingdoms come together to form an expedition, sending three dwarven astronauts on a mission to find a new home. Smashfist, Forcer, and Shadow, from the Red, Yellow, and Blue Kingdoms, respectively, are put in a ship and fired off into deep space. The expedition hits a snag and the astronauts crash land, ending up stranded in uncharted territory.
