    Well I don't know if you call this an agreement or not. But I find that BR
    Dwarves have similar traits to most standard AD&D Dwarves, and since AD&D
    Dwarves are based on Tolkien's then thats a good place to start looking. I
    really feel that the PS for B-A does a great deal more then just speak of
    location and populations. It gives you a good insight into the general
    mentality of BR Dwarves. While it is specific to Dwarves of this region its
    not too hard to extrapolate(sp?) on this for other Dwarven civilizations in
    BR. Just my 2 GBs. :)

    Yes, i agree, it's what i was trying to say. Only that BR dwarves are more "tolkians"
    than any other setting's dwarves, IMHO.
