I agree with Bryon. There should be many races available for people to
choose from. There would never be as many Gnomes as in Cerilia as there
was on Ansalon. But a small number would spice up the game. If you don't
like them don't include them in your game. But don't try and spoil
things for everyone else. And if your DM insists on putting them in.
Have fun killing them. Getting that mage to create a Gnome Slayer weapon
can be lots of fun.

Just my 2GB worth.
