 Portrayal in adaptations
1982-97: Middle-earth Role Playing:
- The unnamed Dwarven tribes were given invented names in an early supplement. While these were published before the publication of Tolkien's late note on the name of the Dwarven houses of the East, it has been suggested that the Stiffbeards could correspond to Bávor's tribe (as portrayed in MERP).
- The House corresponding to the Stiffbeards is called Thulin's Folk, said to inhabit the uttermost North of Middle-earth (dwelling so far north that "their beards grow stiff from cold", according to Khazâd legend).
