Gnomes are a race of short, playful humanoids originating from the land of Zurich. They are known for their dreadful sense of humor, inventiveness, and the whimsical magic they tend to employ. As nearly all gnomes are able to wield some degree of magic, they are frequently Magic Users. They tend to have a disrespectful attitude towards Dwarves, and are generally considered annoying by most other races of Gloriana for their utter inability to take things seriously.
