EverQuest: Second Darkness
A Gnome is a master of machinery and building. They can build just about any machine for the right occasion and they pride themselves in this. They are small and bearded like Dwarves but have white hair and brown skin. Gnomes are a care-free race and they usually focus on their machines rather than others. They do have racial tensions with the Dark Elves and the Trolls.
Gnomes are the innovative race of Norrath. Very small and lanky, the Gnomes spend their days hiding in the cavernous city of Ak’Anon making jewelry, exploring new caves, and inventing new things. They are by no means a strong and sturdy race, but their edge is their dexterity and intelligence. They were the second race, after Dwarves, created by Brell Serilis. The Gnomes are very curious, and tend to experiment with things that can be potentially dangerous. The Gnomes are friends with the other good races of Norrath: Humans, Barbarians, Elves, Dwarves, and Halflings. Many people do not take the Gnomes seriously because they are so short, even though they have created so many great things.
