    I can recall something from Rich Baker that talks about gnomes in Birthright. I can't recall the exact source, possibly from an old email thread, i can look it up later. He envisioned gnomes as being very nature oriented, basically another type of fey.

    I'll see if i can find that source later...

    Ah, here it is... the source is from Mark Aurel. In prepping for the BRCS, Mark went through every item in the Birthright mailing list from Rich Baker. In this listserv note about potential player races, Mark explained what he learned from Rich's notes.

    Sorry if that's a bit convoluted... anywho...

    The crux is that Rich envisioned a very different niche for gnomes- that they are very much like "nature-spirits", with forest gnomes, mountain gnomes, meadow gnomes, etc., and that they should be very rare, and not a PC race.

    I like the potential take on that. Too bad nothing official ever came of it.

    I am running my game using Pathfinder, and wanted to use the races from that game. Therefore, I took all of the background halflings, and applied it to gnomes instead In my setting, gnomes are accepted by elves (often) and so form their own communities in elven lands. The more mechanically inclined amongst them live among the humans.
    Halflings are just halflings.
