The Dwarfs of Mount Atlas: Now Available!
This is a nice little anthropological booklet that details the presumed existence of a tribe of abnormally small tribe of individuals living in some of the mountainous regions of the Atlas range in central Morocco. Funnily, it is technically possible such a group existed at the time, potentially having splintered off genetic pygmy groups in Central Africa. If such is the case, sadly, it is entirely likely the group succumbed to genocide or disease.
This tribe was apparently, if real at all, worshiped by some of the local inhabitants and was considered to have various magickal qualities including the imparting of good luck to locals when present. A fairly important bit of lore for those of us who are inclined to believe in the spiritual; things are not always entirely as they seem.
