Gnomes

Gnomes are generally more social than the other races. Physically they are about half the height of the average human and are usually thicker around the waist. The majority of Gnomes enjoy social gatherings, and their interests usually have them finding something so that they can be around other intelligent races. A lot of the more widely recognized and honest writings on most races histories and cultures were compiled by Gnomes who took to living with various races.
Gnomes originated on the same planet as Elves, Orcs, and Dwarves. Being so, they don’t hold any special feelings for these races. Gnomes are one of the few races that have, for the most part, stayed the same throughout their history; in the past they were roughly the same, although possibly a tad bit more cautious. Present day Gnomes tend to be reckless when they are pursuing something that interests them greatly, although they do at least attempt to be prepared before endangering their lives.
