Forest gnomes are very small creatures, even for Gnome standards, as they are around 2’5” tall and weigh around 30 pounds. They are very shy and they keep their forest homes well hidden. So much so, they are repeatedly “discovered” by others.

They would like nothing more than to be ignored by other races as they shun away from them. On the other hand, they are very friendly within their own kind, as well with the animals living in the area. They can also communicate with them.

Their homes are made in such a way that they don’t affect nature in a negative way. They are fond of jewelry and gems, and while they make and use tools, they dislike axes as they are used for cutting the trees down.
