Mountain dwarves (or Aptapo) are a sub-race of dwarves in Pillars of Eternity.

Origin and prevalence[edit | edit source]

Aptapo (AHP-tah-po, from aptapolare “goat people” in Vailian), commonly known as Mountain Dwarves, originated on the continent to the east of the Dyrwood, but have spread through the area several times before, with most of the evidence being found in remote mountain ranges.[1] Unlike the similarly diminutive orlans, who are frequently subjugated, the Aptapo have always directly fought back threats posed by larger kith and opted to fortify their residences rather than move on.

Mountain dwarves are common in the Vailian Republics and uncommon in the Dyrwood and Readceras. They are rarely encountered in Aedyr, most often traveling with Vailian trading ships.[1]
