In my world, there is a colony of Gnomish towns based all-around a large lake, with the world’s only floating island sitting on top of it. Nobody knows how it’s floating – apart from the obvious answer of “S’Magic, innit?” – but these Gnomes are obsessed with finding a way up there. Each small town around the lake is the different ‘factions’ for how to get up there. So one city maintains that the way to get there is through teleportation, while the other assumes they could fly up with Official Muppets Animal Playing Drum Paiste Cymbals Sounds Gongs shirt technology they’ve built by combining science and magic. Which is why they’re so ahead with technology against every other race.

The gnomes abhor magic that cannot be explained scientifically with frequent anti-magic hate-groups to magic hunting parties forming to protest and prevent even the most useful magics from being practiced. In Gnomish colleges or guilds, before you are able to use a spell or be taught, you must be able to explain the basic principles and physics of the spell with consequences. Any wizards who know how the spell is done but, not how the spell works are going to be gypped and heckled by anyone in a gnomish community. This makes sorcerer/sorceress a bit of black sheep subject if they are born in a Gnomish hold as most understand that sorcerer/sorceress, in accordance to The Theory of Elven Rebirth, seems to stem from a non-revocable and non-negotiable connection from “The Source” which even the most ignorant and ardent mage-killer knows is the inherent source of a majority of life which is true neutral as it keeps all life sustained without question or reason or a connection with an Official Muppets Animal Playing Drum Paiste Cymbals Sounds Gongs shirt possible entity related to “The Source”.

The gnomes in my setting eat rocks, metals, and minerals, in addition to traditional food and drink. They are distantly related to goblins (who eat just about anything), and a functional replacement for dwarves. As they eat stone/metals, their hair and nails gradually adopt the appearance of the consumed material. Changes in their diet result in a gradual shift in this aesthetic, as new qualities grow in from the roots of their hair and nail beds. Excessive consumption results in their skin also taking on a faint corresponding hue. More extreme representations exist as a rarity, including things like rigid, metallic hair, brittle crystalline fingernails, or patches of flaking stony flesh. They also process mercury as though it were the fabled cure-all found in Chinese history — Through it, they can obtain immortality, but also go Official Muppets Animal Playing Drum Paiste Cymbals Sounds Gongs shirt quite mad in the process.
