Q: Dear Sage
My dwarf character fell into a pit of alchemist fire. Although he survived, the fire burned his beard away. Does dwarf facial hair re-grow at the same rate at human facial hair?
A: While a dwarf’s facial hair grows at roughly the same rate as human facial hair, a dwarf’s beard is cultivated from the time a young dwarf’s first facial hail sprouts on his chin. It may take a decade or more of careful care and grooming for a beard to feel (or be recognized by other dwarves) as full as it once was.
