Hell yeah make me one of the 5% too. The other 95% are missing out on the two best Origins in the entire game. Dwarves will always be my favourite fantasy race (I really dislike elves, so I have no problem with them being mostly a slave race in the Dragon Age franchise)
If you don't mind me sharing, here's a summary/description I made of my favourite ever Origins-Awakening Warden (a dwarf, of course) www.fanfiction.net/~cmy187
I never played a dwarf but I find them adorable! I could still play as one but I think going through the game three times in Origins is enough for me. I will definitely be playing dwarf in Inquisition though. I got a name for her and everything. I can't wait!
I actually decided to leave my dwarven routes for last. Mostly because I really want to see what happens when you return to Orz as a dwarf on either side of the fence-and I know if I went with them too early I would've been spoiled completely for certain characters. But I have both my Dwarves all rolled up and ready to go (to save time so I can hit the ground running) but I have to go back a few saves in my dalish elf route because I missed a few things origin specific there before I can pick up on Beryl or Jet. (my Aeducan and Duster respectively)
It'll be even funnier when I transfer my duster's save-because he's hunting down Morrigan and his baby whether she likes it or not.
However, I must admit I am more inclined towards mage specific characters (human mostly) but I did find the dwarve's to be complete beast's in combat if stat's are played right. (Sigrun the untouchable!)
