This page is about the various deep dwarf monsters. For the player race, see deep dwarf.

Deep dwarves are a strange people who live deep in the cold earth, worshiping gods of death and practicing Necromancy. They do not heal naturally, but are well-armed with dwarven gear and their deep dwarf damage shaving provides surprising resilience to all forms of harm. For some reason, they are most often found in the Abyss, though you may also encounter them in various death- and necromancy-themed branches and vaults.

Hostile deep dwarves have been largely phased out of Crawl. Deep dwarf scions, artificers, and necromancers were removed in 0.13, which also reworked unborn deep dwarves into the similar but non-dwarven Unborn. Deep dwarf berserkers were removed in 0.14.

In 0.15, Deep dwarf death knights were replaced by human death knights.

In 0.17, Jorgrun is no longer a deep dwarf, so regenerates.
