Gnomes were once rebellious tricksters of the world, inherently interested in the magic of illusions, ever since escaping the slavery of The Fomorians of The Feywild. Recently however, the world has changed in a way that the Gnomes are not comfortable with. Arcane Magic has been branded outlawed and their one time allies, the Eladrin are all but gone. The gnomes once had a great city, Abbenduin, deep within the forests of Southern Kaverus, and well known for its arcane college, regarded as the best in the world. This made it one of the first targets for roaming Elven mage hunters. The gnomes didn’t have the energy to war with the elves, and so most of their mages were imprisoned or executed. The ruler of Abbenduin, Arch Chancellor Kaddipingathered his people and set out for a new home. They spent most of the kingdom’s money on one of Blackforge Inc.’s newest technologies, giant airships, and set out on a mission of exploration. They fly all across the globe, reporting back to their central base every few months, and search for a new home whether on Kaverus or in The Feywild.
