Song of the Ages
A distant, Fey-touched cousin of halflings, Gnomes are rarely seen outside of the Glistening Isles, their native home. Renowned tinkerers and inventors, their creations are often times desired throughout Messen, though they are often very adverse to trading.
Even more secretive than either the elves or dwarves, outsiders are rarely welcome to the Glistening Isles.
Gnomes that have left the Glistening Isles to make their way in other parts of the world are a rarity, but they do exist.
