The desert dwarves were dwarven clans living in the House of Tezca desert in Maztica. The dwarves were known as the "Hairy Men of the Desert" to humans living in Maztica.


During the Rockfire Cataclysm of 987 DR, Underdark passages between Maztica and Faerûn were destroyed and the dwarves were isolated in Maztica.


The dwarves lived in relatively small clans with several hundred members each.

Because of a lack of iron ore, the desert dwarves were forced to rely on stone weapons. However, as of 1362 DR, some had created weapons from magical plumastone from the ruined city of Tewacha.


With the exception of their sunburnt skin, desert dwarves were indistinguishable from other dwarves.[1]
