“My, you’re a tall one!” – exclaimed the gnome, quickly fixing his glasses before they fell off. He cleared his throat and smiled – “Greetings, are you in the need of assistance?” – he asked, still smiling. “My dear Bivedink Coiltrick, I believe I do.

Gnomes are a small and wiry race that comes from a once-magnificent city of  Gnomeregan. After it was destroyed by the trolls, most of them lived with the dwarves, finding refuge in their deep tunnels. They are very innovative and creative people.

They have a natural knack for inventions and designs, from which even the dwarven smiths draw inspiration from. They are easily-likable and jovial creatures who oftentimes bring much-needed positivity, creativity, and child-like confidence.

Gnomes receive both a first and a last name at birth, where the latter is a mixture of their famous ancestor names and their noteworthy deed. Once they get older, they get their own names and some good examples are Theevetlas Temperfield and Gupi Pitchpatch.
