The Ashen Empire
Like elves, the blood of the fae flows through these small, joyful creatures. They are, however, the most rare of the races that live throughout Tirnidion, having only the mountaintop city of Mightbury to call home. They have a natural penchant for illusion magic, and their magical nature gives them resistance to magic.
The underground-dwelling cousins of the gnomes are a hardy, resilient people whose joy is often quashed by the oppressive nature of the Underdark. However, they are a cunning and resourceful people.
Gnomes, because of their connection with nature and magical blood, favor the paths of the Druid, Ranger, Bard, and Wizard.
