Gnomes are a diminutive, austere, and productive alpine people. They share a similar cultural background, language, and temperament with their dwarf cousins. Though also mountain dwelling, gnome settlements are isolated and distinct from the dwarves, and hidden by illusory magics. Gnomish towns are semi-subterranean more akin to the mining towns of men or forest hamlets. Gnomes are not skilled metalworkers like the dwarves. Most are humble craftsmen who would rather bake, coop, cobble, mill or farm than face a hoard of gibbering goblins. These productive trades have put the gnomes in significant contact with the men of the lowlands. Because gnomes are less doughty than the dwarves they have taken to the cooperative drill and tactics of these men to face foes greater than themselves. This combination of isolated settlements, humble guilds, and teamwork-driven tactics has led to the gnomes having very close knit communities and a democratic society. Gnomish military decisions are heatedly debated and eventually agreed upon by a council of senior guild leaders and learned wizards. Gnomish armies, though made up of citizen craftsmen, are known for their discipline and lack of generals.
