The Blackheart Spire
Gnomes originate from the Feywild realms, and are thus considered enigmatic to the more grounded races. Free-spirited and flighty, these small humanoids stand roughly the same height as the Kyth. They populate cities throughout the world in small communes, lending their skills as craftsmen and tinkers to the more populous races.
However, they are best known for their most notorious contribution: Flamepowder. This black alchemical substance is used not just as an explosive, but also as the propellant in the gnomish weapons known as fire arms. These weapons are loud, noisome, and damaging; a perfect weapon from the perspective of a gnomish tinker.
Gnomes are the children of Ioun, being skilled inventors and seekers of knowledge.
