Saviors of Rhillau
Much like the dwarves, the gnomes emerged from deep within the earth. While the dwarves seemed content to live on the boundary between the heart of Koeh and its surface, though, the gnomes were not. They ventured outward, discovering everything the world has to offer. Though they have no true society of their own, they integrate themselves well with any culture they find themselves in, and soon become part of that society, though their inclination towards playing tricks often gets individual gnomes into trouble.
Home for the gnomes will always be with the dwarves, though. The two races share an ancient kinship that has yet to be strained, much less broken. While the dwarves focus their growth on science and engineering, the gnomes’ fey lineage lends them a natural affinity for magic, which has allowed a nice balance in their shared society.
