Another race in the Life on Water world. I’m combining Dark Elves and Dwarves since some norse mythology interpretations state that svartálfr and dwarf may be the same concept.
The Svartals are a short, amphibious race that emerged out of the ocean several years after the Great Flood. The Svartals are grouchy, nasty creatures that only make of up for their lack of social skill with their great craftsmanships. Most of the forges in the flooded world are maned by Svartals.
