The Gnomes seem to have a knack for finance. They run a lot of the businesses, and they seem to have their dirty little fingers into most of the railroads. They are a sturdy lot, if not as visually pleasing as some of the other races... Gnomes are particularly fond and protective of their families. Angering a Gnomish family is never a good idea, since they don't forget and the natural lifespan of a gnome is 500 years or so... Women and children rarely travel outside of their protective communities, and if they do, a group of Half-Ogre bodyguards is sure to follow.

Statistics: Gnomes get a +2 to willpower, +10 to any negative reaction and gain two additional ranks of Haggle, at the cost of a -2 to Constitution.
