I've been thinking about D&D dwarves lately. If they evolved underground, without seasons and constellations, would they ever develop math (other than basic arithmetic)?
Also, why do they traditionally yield axes, if there are no trees underground?
Also: if they lived for generations underground, without ever seeing the surface. How would they perceive the world? Would they ask "what happens if we keep digging up?", and what would they expect the answer to be. Or down?
It's interesting to think about the development of philosophy/science/mythos of an underground society.
