The Island of Kyuria
Gnomes are small, creative, little creatures, reminiscent of what many humans have heard in fairy tales. Almost all of them involve themselves in some kind of intellectual pursuit. For the Gnomes, life is about discovery and invention, as they all have an inherent curiosity in almost everything. Not the same kind of curiosity of the Halflings, mind you. Trouble is not what Gnomes seek.
Most Gnomes find their homes in the company of the Dwarves, as they have formed an almost symbiotic relationship with them. Whereas normally most races show some kind of animosity towards each other, Gnomes and Dwarves get along very well together. Gnomes need precious metals and iron for their many inventions, and Dwarves need inventions to mine their precious metals and iron, and to brew their famous beers.
One of the most famous inventions is that of the Gnomish Pistol, although many do not believe of its existence, as not many have seen such a weapon. The most successful gnome is usually thought to be Tinko of the SnT Brewing Company, famous for the best brews in Kyuria.
