    Which one of these two will you most likely to visit if you're in a fantasy world? I'll go for elven city since I think the environment there is more relaxing than dwarven strongholds and you can really see a lot of things there beyond imagination. Just think Paris of France. And imagine that hundred fold... :draught:

    Because I'm feeling evil and thus trying to force people to make either choice lol!:devilbat:
    Ok, I admit it's more of the reason that I want to see a more distinct preference in this area, but then again, now that Met has said it, I did feel a bit regreted not to put both... man, I feel that I sound like an evil old man lol! :faceit:

    I love caves and being underground, so I'd love to see what an underground city looks like. And the Dwarves aren't bad at making thigns attractively either, so I'm sure it would still be pretty nice.

    Dwarven stronghold because I like to see fortifications and if I was in a fantasy world I would prefer to live in a good castle in this case a Dwarven Stronghold with good beds,strong walls,dwarven soldiers protecting the stronghold,a cozy fire in a big room,beer,good meat and tales of old.

    How's that? ;)

    dwarven stronghold. I'd love to see their technology and weapons and drink some beer!

    [they don't have underage laws in fantasy worlds, do they?]

    plus it'd be cool to see the different tunnels and masterful masonwork

    All I have to say is:

    Dwarven Pride Worldwide! :D

    And to imagine that I used to be fanatically pro-elf years ago.

    But now I kind of started supporting the dwarves and love their characters even more.

    Not that I snub Elves,but Dwarves are awesome too and they deserve the respect.

    So if you ask me if I was gonna give a fight in an Elvish-controlled forest or a dwarven castle/mountain stronghold I'd prefer to fight alongside the dwarves,drinking beer and knowing that I'd have stout and good friends to protect me and fight with me to the end.

    I wonder what the offspring would look like if a dwarf mated with an elf?...
    would it look like a gnome?

    oh I voted Elves but if you asked me again later I might have voted dwarves. Too close.

    Wouldn't want to bet on it. Red wine produces nightmarish hangovers.

    The elven grace is my choice. Well... this is if you're talking about Tolkien elves. Otherwise if you mean little elves scampering about in the leaves and sitting on mushrooms, I'd go for a blind, deaf, mute, limbless dwarf.
    Well, maybe not mute or deaf.
    And a good pint o' ale!
