Not dwarves. Tarkalor's daddy pissed them off when using dwarven technology for the Boldhome Orlanth temple, and Tarkalor's son Terasarin gets caught by the Moonbeam when he chased the presumed dwarven abductors of his granddaughter into the Bush Range. Given the holy nature of Whitewall, another point against dwarven aid, with the only point for Tarkalor being his role as King of Dragon Pass who just might get one instance of aid.
