Their society shattered after the Ashes, the Gnomes were given refuge by King Oro. Known for their skill with craft and art, the Gnomes and Dwarves are a powerful team. During the Earning war the Gnomes provided the goodly forces with alchemical weapons and supplies. After the war, the Gnomes settled into life with the Dwarves. While they live under King Oro’s rule in the Southeastern mountains, the Gnomes do have an elected representative who is a part of the King’s council. Few of Althura’s races, other than Dwarves, meet Gnomes. They tend to remain in their mountain communities where they study and train any gifts in the craft or arts making Gnomish adventurers uncommon.
