In the Feywild, the best way for a small creature to survive is to be overlooked. While suffering in servitude to the fomorian tyrants of the Feydark, gnomes learned to hide, to mislead, and to deflect – and by these means, to survive. The same talents sustain them still, allowing them to prosper in a world filled with creatures much larger and far more dangerous than they are.
They have a strong sense of curiosity and they are particularly interested in all things magical. They generally lack the ambitions and motivations of big folk and are content to lead simple lives. Some gnomes are content to wander between libraries and temples, gleaning knowledge from books and tomes. Others crave to explore lost ruins, delve deep into the world, and snoop around arcane laboratories.
