The origin story, so to speak, is a bit different from that of the Elves given the big distance between the two groups. Gnomes live in two distinct areas: the Huun mountain plateau (these are the “northern”, or “city” gnomes), or the jungles of Jakbarbo (the “southern”, or “jungle” gnomes).

Gnome culture

As there are no humans in our game, these bits of information are from what some Elven and Gnome scholars have managed to puzzle out over the years.

Human culture

With the history above, so with the culture below – however, most of these are from Elven and Gnome perspectives; what they have witnessed filtered through their experiences.
