A tiny race of inventers and mechanics, the gnomes are far and away the most curious of the races to inhabit the realms.
Gnomes are a small race, averaging around two feet tall and looking for the most part like miniature dwarves [a contradiction in terms?]. It has been postulated that the gnomes and the dwarves are related, and both sides seem to object just a little to strongly to this 'accusation.' Gnomes possess quick minds and nimble bodies and their insatiable curiosity pushes many of them into careers as mechanics, inventors, and engineers - though it should be noted that said inventions [while elaborate, detailed and well thought-out] rarely, if ever, work. It is, therefore, quite dangerous to be working around a gnome that displays the twin signs of curiosity and eagerness.
Their size, of course, precludes most of the race from choosing an adventuring life as warriors or even thieves and most take up the path of clerics and mages instead, their keen minds very well suited for the intricate knowledge of the arcane or divine. There are stories about feral, barbaric gnomes that live to the far north, but it should be noted that these are mere rumours and must, of course, be taken with a grain of salt.
Gnome PC stats have the following modifiers applied (note: these racial modifications not only alter your character's original stats, but also the maximum attainable with equipment [18+modifier] and the meta shop [25+modifier].)
Gnomes may not be Rangers.
