Occasional allies of my people, particularly when formorians are involved, the diminutive stature of the gnomes belies their competency in battle. It is speculated, by non-gnomes, that they may have once been members of the Telhesi who wandered into the fey lands and became trapped. The gnomes themselves deny this, as well as any association with dwarves, and mockingly claim to be eladrin who were smart enough to keep their heads down when the arrows started flying. Their culture is based around their community and family, and has never been one for great cities or empires. Indeed, more so even than the elves, gnomes are content to let trouble pass by their illusion shrouded homes, while they remain safe inside.
