- Are "Mostali" and "Dwarf" synonyms? In some sources the two terms seem to be used interchangeably; in some others they don't.
"Dwarves" is the word western human malkioni use to describe mostali, like the teshnans call them "babadi" and some orlanthi "stone men".
- What are Mostali/Dwarves made of? Stone? Metal? The matter they are named after (diamond, gold, etc)?
/// Who knows ? They don't leave any corpse that could be examined by others and recycle all their corpses. I have seen mostali bleed both red and black fluids ; a Talker understood its cry and mentioned it said it was "leaking oil", whatever that means.
Bronze does cut into their flesh. However, I once heard a sword clang with a metallic ring on the bone in their arm. One might suspect that iron dwarves have bones of iron !
