Tales of Magic and the Mundane
Gnomes are small, human-like creatures who live deep in forests and underground caverns. Gnomes are said to have been the immortal kin of Elves in some distant past. Powerful alchemists and magicians, they were cursed with mortality by the Elves for their use of Dark Magic. Since, gnomes have renounced their connections to evil and live peacefully in their small communities. Gnomes are connected with nature, even being called ‘’Spirits of the Earth,’’ by the misinformed. They have become some off the best gyromancers and Earth Elementalists of the known world. Because of this, the race as a whole has befriended many races of fairy like brownies and sprites. They vary greatly is size and appearance. While some are no longer than a man’s arm, others can grow up to four feet. The environment in which they live affects them further; a gnome who lives underground may have lighter skin than one who lives above, and so on.
