Extremely reclusive and curious are the Gnomes. The legends say a clan of Dwarves became lost deep under ground. Fearsome creatures and inhospitable conditions caused the Dwarves to change and adapt after generations survived. One day they found their way back above ground. When they emerged they did not look like the Dwarves that remained with the rest of the world.
Their facial features became exaggerated. Long noses and hairy pointed ears. Dark eyes and gaunt limbs. They seem to have an unnatural way of hiding in the shadows and the illusionary arts.
