It’s hard to define the Gnomes of Arth; they’re said to take as many shapes and sizes as the clouds in the sky. Gnomish legends say that they once shared a common ancestor, but the great Clans have all become their own sub-races. Be that as it may, it’s proper to refer to any of them, from a Halfling to a Tinderkin to a Deep Gnome, as a Gnome.
Scribkin, as the Gnomes of Clan Tinkrin are commonly known, are generally thought by most people to be the quintessential Gnomes (a viewpoint wholeheartedly embraced by most Scribkin). They stand half as tall as most humans, with stocky builds, bulbous noses, and thick, bushy hair. Industrious and curious, Scribkin make for some of Arth’s most innovative inventors, enchanters, and engineers.
