When other races speak of gnomes, they most likely have a rock gnome in mind. They are around 3ft tall and weigh around 40 pounds. The sole purpose of a rock gnome is to fill his day with all sorts of entertainments, having fun as they go.

They remind us of human children, with their endless questions and inquisitive nature, often playing pranks on others, running from one thing to another, never actually focusing on one thing unless it was something they really liked.

Rock gnomes are very intelligent creatures, whose minds are particularly adept at figuring how things work. This makes them good wizards, tinkers, and inventors. They are fairly trustful and friendly, as long as you can take a joke.
