Overview Edit

Gnomes are a tiny, slightly built race created by Brell. What they lack in size they make up for in tenacity and ingenuity. Gnomes are known for their inquisitive nature, constantly tinkering with things both mystical and technological. This poking around has gotten them into trouble in the past, but their craftiness and intellect has allowed them to survive and prosper despite whatever mischief they might unleash. Gnomish architecture is mechanistic in nature, with lots of gears and motors turning all manner of odd creations. Gnomes are known for constructing "clockwork" devices, essentially mechanical versions of all manner of creatures, from rats to dragons. They even make clockwork gnomes to aid them in the completion of manual labor.

Like their cousins the dwarves, gnomes are adept miners with a love for precious gems and the metals of the earth. As they are lacking in physical strength, many gnomes concentrate on intellectual pursuits through the study of magic. Gnomes believe every question can be answered through their system of Mechanimagica, a belief that combines science and magic. The gnomes' analytical minds are always working, constantly devising new formulas, strategies, and sometimes mischief.
