I wasn't on the offense. I said I found it troubling. I didn't attack anyone or call names or spit or cuss or insult anyone. I just said I was troubled. I adore Tolkien-inspired dwarves. I adore Jews. I find parallels troubling.

It is troubling because some aspects of dwarves (their beards and greed come immediately to mind) are present in terrible caricatures of Jews. As a big Jew who is often told he doesn't seem Jewish (by other Jews no less) I'll stick by the word - troubling.

But the idea that they borrow heavily from Jewish tradition is troubling. I don't see a clear Jewish link in modern fantasy nor myth concerning dwarves.

I agree that there's fertile ground for taking real world religions all over the place, in all religions.

comment What are the origins of the Raven Queen?
I do disagree. She is a new addition to the D&D mythology, along with Githyanki, beholders, Pelor and Vecna. They are all D&D fluff or color, as in bits of the setting that are not mechanical in nature. Other 4e fluff bits: The Primordials, the Shadowfell, etc.

My experiences mirror those of SevenSidedDie.
