Alignment And Religion
Although Gnomes have a child like aesthetic all through their life, they are actually one of the slowest growing races, reaching adulthood at 40 years and middle age at 100. Those that haven't blown themselves up in an unfortunate engineering accident usually reach death at 210 years of age.Dietary Needs
Gnomes prefer to eat for substance rather than flavor and place little value in gourmet food. Because of their underground environments they have developed a taste, and recipes, for fish, bivalve mollusks, and most of all, mushrooms.Languages
Gnomes speak Common, Gnomish, and Dwarven. Often when gnomes begin a project in a group setting, their jargon can become difficult to understand as they weave in technical jargon to dizzying degrees.
