Dwarves and mountains have one thing in common: It takes an almighty hammer and a tremendous amount of persistence to overcome them.
~ Murk Region Saying


Die Zwierge (lit. "The Dwarves") is a series of high-fantasy novels written by Markus Heitz that follows the titular Dwarves, a species of humanoids possessing great might and mastery of craftsmanship, most notably Tungdil Goldhand, the central protagonist who is a foundling raised by humans.

While the books possess great multitudes of conflicts and storylines, the main plot revolves around Tungdil's protection of Girdlegard, the country/continent the story takes place in, and his eventual abandonment of hope for the land. Major threats to the land include an evil, soulless brand of elves, roaming demigods seeking to purge evil away at all costs, and a sentient pestilence seeking to take over the land itself.

The series itself gained enough notoriety to spawn a series of video games in recent years.
