Gnomes are a quirky demi-Human race. Though not the mightiest of races, Gnomes are well versed in the studies of knowledges, magicks, and religions. Most Gnomes often prefer an evening at home with a magical tome, a loaf of pipeweed bread, and a mug of ale over venturing out to battle.
In general, Gnomes are short and stocky, similar to their Dwarven cousins. They usually focus in the magical or Clerical arts, though a few rogues have ventured into the arts of Thieving (albeit often not very well).
Gnomes have innate infravision, and due to their familiarity with magical and religious lore they are able to detect magic in the environment around them. They are somewhat resistant to energy based magic, but also somewhat susceptible to fire.
