Gnomes are squat humanoids, more heavyset, and shorter than a human. They tend to have thin, gangly limbs and potbellies; their fingers are especially very long and narrow, giving them a good advantage in dealing with small intricate machinery and picking locks. Gnomes have tan skin and can have any color eyes, but these always tend to be bright, a sign of their inner intelligence. Male gnomes tend to be taller and stockier with short hair and finely-trimmed beards. Women tend to have longer hair and more angular faces.


Gnomes tend to be one of the most curious races, which tends to affect almost all of their dealings with others. They tend to be thinkers, tinkerers, and pranksters; most of their pranks are made in jest because they are a high-spirited race full of humor. Gnomes have a love of animals, the exotic, and machinery; they are Hollow's great inventors. Loyal companions, gnomes manage to stay with friends for many years, finding out about them. Their loyalty and curious nature mean they tend to be well thought of, although this is sometimes negated if they become too well known for their seemingly cruel pranks. Gnomes have a peculiar obsession with gemstones, the larger and shinier, the better. Gnomes tend not to care what kind of gem it is, for they love them all equally. Gnomes craft these gems into beautiful artifacts and jewelry that are expensive to buy outside of gnome lands as they feel physically sick upon parting with their work.

Gnome Society

The good-aligned gnomes are part of the kingdom of enchantment's society—a multi-racial alliance of security and cooperation. Gnomes tend to live in small embankments and burrows in large extended families, usually up to six generations under one embankment. This is because gnomes, like dwarves, have a healthy respect for age and wisdom, so their elders are usually the leaders. Pranks, music, and story tend to be the most common forms of entertainment. Gnomes are small of stature but great of intellect and tinker with many inventions and were probably the first race to use clockwork in toys and timepieces, this knowledge they share with their fellows. The gnomes are represented at the court of the Pixie Queen by their own nobles. They are valued members of the Enchanted Kingdom, providing technical expertise, mages, and occasionally foot soldiers and thieves to the pixie queen's army.

Gnomes & Religion

Gnomes tend not to very religious, preferring to devote their time to other things. While they have no formal priesthood, a handful of gnomish priests do exist. However, they tend not to speak for any kind of gnomish belief. Gnomes do not revere or worship nature, as the pixies and elves do.
