Kin to dwarves, gnomes are noticeably smaller than their distant cousins. (Gnomes, as they proudly maintain, are also less rotund than dwarves.) Most have dark tan or brown skin, white hair, and rather large noses. Gnomes have natural resistance to magic and can see in the dark with darkvision. They gain a bonus to Intelligence, but a penalty to Wisdom.
