Gnomes make their homes in the gently rolling hills of south slope
of the Spine Mountains. There are also sizable gnome populations
near the cities of the Northern Kingdom.
Gnomes are generally a peaceful people. They want to have little
to do with the world beyond their comfortable hills, however their
inquisitive nature sends many of them out into the world to seek new
knowledge and experiences.
The short stature of gnomes and lack of physical exertion means that
most gnomes are not very strong. The endless enthusiasm and constant
movement of most gnomes makes them slightly more nimble than the average
human. Their appearance and general bubbliness makes gnomes slightly
unnattractive to most people. Because of their natural inquisitiveness
gnomes are more intelligent than other races.
Many races consider gnomes to be comical in appearance. Their short
frame, rarely exceeding three and a half feet, is almost too small for
their head. The gnomish face is dominated by a large nose, wide eyes,
and thick lips. Their skin is tan and heavily weathered. Gnomish hair
is almost always light brown, but tends to fall out or turn prematurely
white before middle age. Many male gnomes have luxurious beards, but not
all and almost never on females.
