One of the few cultural phenomenons that are quite similar in every known dwarven hold is the great reverence for the Astral spirits. While dwarves rarely possess the gift of magic one would be unwise to not respect and fear the powers of a dwarven Khluson-Ghin (Listener of the Forefathers).
(Examples: Animist, Medium, Noaidi, Tngri, Seidh, Khluson-Ghin…)
Shamans are are those blessed (or cursed) with ability to sense and communicate with the creatures of the Astral planes; the Spirits. Shamans are often feared by the general public, and rightly so. To those who walk with the long since passed and the demons of the Astral Fringe even Death herself holds few secrets.
