2019 Father's DayWho doesn’t like some hugs on Father’s Day? This guy, apparently! This is a direct follow up to the previous post, both images – as always – are viewable on our Instagram page. In past editions of Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder, Dwarves had a hatred against goblinoids as a racial trait. That doesn’t seem right. Maybe it is just a hatred of the hugs?

Think about it for a moment. How many shows have you seen, novels you have read, that show any dwarf as “lovey-dovey”? A great number of media sources show them as gruff and surly. It has been some time since I’ve seen Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. There might be one of two hugs in there. But that is an exception to the rule, and a Disney portrayal. You will most likely see dour warriors over comical miners in any work of fiction. Maybe they are just upset that their stout ladies are never around? Or unhappy that they may or may not have beards as lustrous as their own? All of you writers and directors out there! Get those Dwarves some hugs! And don’t forget dad! Give him a bunch of hugs on Father’s Day!
