The stoic dwarves of Ironforge are an ancient race of robust humanoids who live beneath the snow-capped mountains of Khaz Modan. The dwarves have always been fast allies with the Humans, and they revel in the prospects of battle and storytelling alike. The nobility of the Ironforge dwarves is born from the Bronzebeard clan. The Bronzebeard dwarves are mountain dwarves or hill dwarves.
The Bronzebeard clan, often called Hill Dwarves or Mountain Dwarves, are the de facto rulers of Khaz Modan, ever since the conclusion of the War of the Three Hammers some two centuries ago. There home Zone, is Dun Morogh, where the Snow covered land contains the mountain city of Ironforge. Ironforge, a city carved into a mountain ages ago containing the largest forge in all of Azeroth. In general their reign has been prosperous: they reestablished friendly relations with the Wildhammer, restored the ancient city of Ironforge, and oversaw the construction of the Thandol Span bridges. However, the clan has never been on good terms with the Dark Iron clan. The Dark Irons have tried to conquer Ironforge many times.
Compared to the Dark Iron Sorcerers, or the Shamanistic Wild Dwarves, the Bronzebeard clan as a whole, fit the dwarven stereotype with ease. Usually living near a source of Iron and setting up impressive mines. They also are some of the most skilled Blacksmiths and Engineers out of the three clans and most of the Alliance. Many of them are also Hunters most using Guns. In fact Bronzebeard Dwarves are known to be some of the most skilled gunsmiths in Azeroth.
