Among the Dwarves' beliefs was the idea of a life after death. The Dwarves believed that in order to reach the afterlife, a Dwarf had to be interred within stone; this was related to their belief that the Dwarf race was created from stone. Dwarves also claimed that stone was a living organism, using the example of coral - in reality a colonial organism - as proof that stone was alive and could grow. While other types of rock appeared inert to magical inspection, Dwarf priests were believed to be able to detect life in landlocked rocks.
