Dwarven archers are about average in their ability to use a bow. Although Dwarven bows are smaller in size by necessity, their composite construction allows them to fire with the same power and range as larger bows. With practice and experience, Dwarven archers become more lethal with the bow and arrows. Like other Dwarves, they are able to move easily underground and traverse large mountains. Their inborn hardiness also gives them a natural resistance to many magical effects and poison.
