Terra Incognita:

Dwarves are inferior copies of True Mostali because when they were made, the Decamony suspended quality control. They did this so they could make more of them.

>Some of True Mostali doesn't seem to lose Immortality even after

Being a heretic does not cause a dwarf to become mortal. Only becoming an apostate turns a dwarf mortal (much as the Decamony likes to blur the difference).

>In contrary, some heretical clays like Chark the Liberator seem to

I'm not too sure how Chark died (as the statement about stone bones implies). But since his bones turned to stone (an indication that he was pious), I think he suffered a premature end rather than simply dying of old age.

>(At least I know Flintnail and Isidilian are

Martalor is a Brass Mostali. All the others are dwarves AFAIK.

Apparently from Glorantha: Intro p68, Diamond Dwarves are literally True Mostali.
