I have a good friend and fellow DM who says that an elf dwarf liason
would produce a gnome. That's why gnomes have such a hard time deciding
to living in the forest or dig a hole. They are torn between their
genetic inclinations. Elves and Dwarves, being the way they are, do not
talk about there releationship with gnomes. Anyway that's one scenerio
for such a reletionship and it makes for some fairly humors concepts.
