Voted Dwarves just because I relate to them more. Mostly Warcraft Dwarves because I enjoy their fun-loving and down-to-earth personalities a lot more than the uppity, highfalutin elves.

I don't mind Night Elves either though, in-lore they seem less up themselves than the stereotypical depiction of elves and that's probably because turning to Druidism and the centuries of death against the Legion plus the loss of their immortality has humbled them tremendously.

Which of these two races is better as a major villain race?

I think that elf villains are common enough and I would be interested in seeing a setting with villainous dwarves. I can't think of one really. WoW had the Dark Irons but that was only 1/3 of all dwarves.

When I was making a fantasy world a few years ago I had my dwarves all be isolationist assholes who put a giant wall on their borders, but not really villainous.

I had dwarves as immortal, slowly turning to stone over their lifetime, with entire crypt cities populated by nothing but unmoving living statues. Dwarven society was dedicated entirely to preparing their eternal tombs, which involves plundering a lot of treasure from the other underground races (also, if anyone happens to die during the raid, hey, that's just one less lavish tomb you have to carve into a mountain, right?). The dwarven crypts are also frequent targets of raiders, which led to most dwarves being very xenophobic.

I'm not sure if I would call them villains though, if only because the entire point of the setting was that to create a setting where no civilization could rightly be called heroic or villainous.

The dwarves in my setting are sorta kinda really Greek.

One of the first civilizations on the planet, well regarded by most people in a certain part of the world for inventing pretty much everything they hold dear (including the disciplines of architecture and logical philosophy, and more ephemeral concepts like democracy and rule of law), once held a vast empire that was eventually taken over by nomadic marauders.

The human nations bound together to sponsor a dwarven independence movement and they managed to reclaim most of their homeland (but not their greatest city) after a protracted war. They adopted a federated system of government with a somewhat weak central authority, but they have absolutely crippling debts to the human nations who sponsored their revolution. Eighty years later, they have failed to form a coalition government that lasts more than a few months at any given time, and most other nations are considering them a "failed state." A few have started calling for their war debts to be repaid, causing the dwarven government to start selling off its nationalized mithril mines or ancient cultural treasures to the highest bidder.

Elves so that I can kill them.

In all seriousness, I'm always a fan of conventionally beautiful beings/people as being antagonists. It's a nice subversion to the protagonists typically being good looking, or at least ruggedly handsome. On another note, as weird as it sounds, 'evil dwarves' we see a fair bit less often than we do evil elves such as say... Drow.

Dwarves despite having scottish accents have a lot of viking motiffs.

Imagine a dwarf viking raiding and pillaging across the seas. That would be awesome.

They are here to drink your beer,
And steal your rum at the point of a gun,
Your alcohol to them will fall,
'Cause they are here to drink your beer.

Dwarves. Because they're sturdy and awesome.


I do love me some Elf womenz though. Pretty, tight things.

Dwarf women will rock your world, pun intended.

Especially the Warcraft kinds, seems like they are unique in that they're actually hot.

Agreed Hammer.

It's disgusting.

@Grimtale: Yeah, Dwarven-women generally look better in WoW than in other sources. But I tend to like tall and skinny in real life (I have a ridiculous standard when it comes to women)

I enjoyed the Theiwar dark sorceror dwarves from the dragonlance books.

I really can't decide. I like both.
And they're both extremes. Elves are too dainty, Dwarves too stocky. Elves are too asexual, Dwarves are the equivalent of hairy private parts.
