Amdael is a forest-covered kingdom surrounded by the mountains. Most of its short, stout, and bearded inhabitants live underground or in homey caves. As with most dwarves in folklore, they are happiest when mining for metal and gems and forging fine weaponry. Their thick skin makes them well acclimated to both heat and cold. However, since their eyes are more equipped for dark environments, their eyes are more sensitive to light, hence the complex tunnel systems one will find running all through Amdael. Dwarves are very traditional as well, so although they trade a lot of metal with Liadon, Amdael stays fairly technology-free (with the exception of the occasional pair of sunlight resistant goggles).
