"'Nay! Hold! Go Back!' thus spake the Dwarf,
through all the smoke and fire,
'Avaunt! Arroint! Go home! Naf off!
Depart or face my ire!'

And dragged his body through,
Espied the dwarf and judged his reach
Then bit the fool in two.

"Arrows are useless against a castle - you can only win by using heavy wall-breaching equipment, which is why dwarfs are the superior race in siege warfare. If you are the besieger, you can't hit anything worthwhile at all. If you are inside the castle, you might think arrow-fire would be effective from the towers - but which would you prefer to be hit by, a pointy stick or a 30 lb rock?"

+++Berndt Lavaspear: «The Dwarfen Art of War», p5[2]+++

"Oh say does your beard hang low,

does it dangle to and fro,
can you tie it in a knot,
can you tie in a bow,
can you sling it over your shoulder like a silly manling soldier,
oh say does your beard hang low"
+++Longbeard song+++
