Gnomes are small creatures, averaging around 3’3” tall and weighing around 40 pounds. They have pointy ears and often grow facial hair. They can live for a long time, often even surpassing more than several centuries.

They have a natural affinity for arcane arts, especially illusion related magic. Gnomes also have a knack for tinkering and inventing, and they are often shopkeepers and blacksmiths, though they leave the armor and weapon making to someone else.

They are jovial creatures who love pranks and games, especially ones that involve hiding. They rarely leave homes, as they mostly have everything they need, but those who do leave are actually well suited for adventuring.

      I’m guessing that you refer to the introduction of the female Gnome paragraph. Nothing weird here. It’s based on the lore of the race. Their stories are not happening nowadays anyway. And if you keep reading a bit, you’ll find stories of badass female Gnomes. In the end, you’re free to choose the story of your own character.
