Rock gnomes are typically between 3 to 3½ feet tall and weigh anywhere from 40 to 45 lbs . They possess a natural white tint to their skin. Young gnomes possess any of a large number of hair colors that fades to gray or white upon reaching adulthood. Male gnomes typically keep themselves hairless.
Sky gnomes possess many of the traits other races, particularly humans, attribute to children. Most rock gnomes enjoy life to their very fullest; asking questions endlessly, playing pranks on friends and strangers, and finding new and interesting hobbies are just a few of the countless chores that rock gnomes burden each day with. Much like a child, a rock gnome possesses very little tolerance for long term mental focus unless the task as hand is of notable interest.
While their joyful, child-like viewpoint of life gives the impression that a sky gnome would be incapable of achieving something as mundane as physical labor, rock gnomes manage to use their keen intelligences to turn something as generally unexciting as work into a fun and enjoyable expenditure of their time and energy.
Sky gnomes gather in small towns, rarely reaching 500 adults. They consider large cities to be uncomfortable, partially because of the great amount of demand the Big Folk have for their skills.
Married gnome couples have rooms for each to use, though children generally sleep together in a single room.
Although rock gnomes can theoretically be of any alignment, the majority of sky gnomes, as a culture, lean towards neutral good. Sky gnomes will aid someone in need and oppose all who would impose their will upon those weaker than them.
Sky gnomes typically possess a nonchalant reverence of their chosen deity, bringing up the name of their god in any form of conversation as if they were referring to a friend. Rock gnomes rarely go to church and possess no particularly great amount of zeal towards the worship of their pantheon of gods. In typical gnomish manner, the gnomish gods require no particularly impressive display of faith, being more interested in following their own admittedly mundane agendas.
Most sky gnomes worship the head of the gnomish pantheon, Garl Glittergold, considering him to be the idealized gnome, personifying mischief and merry-making.
Relations with other racesEdit
Sky gnomes are especially easy going with dwarves and halflings, especially those who appreciate a good joke. They are typically more cautious and subdued around the Big Folk (humans, elves and the other medium size humanoids), taking a considerably longer time (a day longer, perhaps) to consider them a friend and ally. They consider all forms of goblinkin to be extremely untrustworthy and give them a very wide berth if possible.
