Back when Kahdisteria
still enslaved gnomes
, the dark elves
often force bred gnelves, but that practice hasn’t existed in centuries.
Before this, elf/gnome hybrids were slightly more common in the Red Era
and were often the result of non-Kahdisterian elves also enslaving and occasionally raping gnomes.
Because of this horrific past, most gnomes
generally view interbreeding with elves
as a severe taboo because the offspring of these unions remind them of these dark times.
The taboo is considerably less stinging in the land of Codenya
. Codenya was insulated from the dark elves
historically so they don't have the cultural baggage. Wood elves
are generally pretty light on sexual taboos in general. Wood elves
and forest gnomes
tend to get along very well. While still rare, gnomish half elves are hardly unheard of in Codenya. They are generally treated well and the parents receive little stigma as long as both mother and father raise the child. That’s sort of the rule for wood elves
mating with non-elves. “As long as both parents stick around to take responsibility for the life they created, it is acceptable.” Sometimes wood elves and forest gnomes even raise children inside of marriage.
In the lands controlled by the Elven Empire
, relations between gnomes and elves are pretty good but they aren't usually this
close. While most sexual encounters between grey elves
and grey gnomes
are consenual, they are usually casual affairs.
