A Stonefoot-Lord

The Stonefoots (Kh. Azali-Dûraz), also known as Malln´s or Bavor's folk, were one of the seven tribes of the Khazâd. They were also known as the "Red Dwarves".


The extremely loyal Stonefoots or Jewel-Dwarfs were one of the two tribes of Eastern Middle-Earth. Awoken in the Red Mountains along with their fellow Tribe, the Blacklocks, the Stonefoots were the Clan of Malln or Bavor.

After a Golden Fire Dragon drove the dwarfs away from their awakening Place, the great North-Hall near the Ganadlû Pass, the Stonefoots went Southwards and founded the Great City of Khazad-Madûr in Akhuzdah (Ahulë), later they also built an Overground religious centre, the Khalarazûm.

Only 7 years after the founding of Tumanahal, the second Dwarven tribe came to Rûrîk. They arrived in hope of settling in the northern part of the Walled Land, for their lord, the aged Malln North-King.Bavor’s folk received all the lands north of the Faliodukûm. The two tribes had little trouble in prospering, despite the occasional forays from the Fale tribes and the servants of the Kank of Ruartar. 453 after the founding of Rurik, Muar – a Demon from Uab and Uax appeared in Ralian, and conquerred Rurik in SA 1157. The tragic tale of Rurik ended centuries later, in SA 2742 (Fulla VII crowned as King of Rurik, heir of Bavor’s line).

Stonefoot Dwarves with their remarkeable reddish skin

The Stonefoots were especially known as great artists, skilled in the work with Marble, but they also were busy Merchants. They were called "Red Dwarves" for dyeing their Hair and skin with a special red colour, made from a rock of the Orocarni.


Stonefoots of Renown


In LOTRRPG the Stonefoots are referred to as "Vigdis' Folk", a strange decision as Vigdis is supposedly a name of one of the seven fathers, but the name is Norse and actually female.In MERP the tribe is identified as "Bávor's folk".
