Often overlooked by other races, gnomes are in fact
among history’s greatest movers. A thirst for knowledge
and secrets combined with natural charisma
and innate mystical talent make gnomes a race to be
reckoned with

Gnomes originally came from the Feywild, but
no one knows when or how. What is clear is that
gnomes arrived in the world in numbers far greater
than did the eladrin. Gnomes have spread across the
world, but they have gathered in a few distinct communities,
the greatest of which is Zilargo. Gnomes
are gregarious and friendly. but they are also fascinated
by deception and intrigue. A gnome is happiest
when he or she is unearthing a neighbor’s secrets or
engaging in subterfuge, even when the only result
might be a slight Increase in the value of his or her
property. Some gnomes think bigger, engaging in
espionage and conspiracy that can topple governments.
When gnomes find trouble, they usually try
to talk or trick their way out of it. Above all, gnomes
arc a social people.
Gnomes share no common faith: almost every religion
of Eberron counts gnomes among its ranks.

Zilargo is the land of gnomes. Originally inhabitants
of the Feywild, many gnomes immigrated to Zilargo
through the feyspires of the eladrin. When the feyspires
failed to return to the Feywild. most gnomes
stranded in Eberron joined their kin in Zilargo.
Some gnomes still live in the feyspires, as well.
Whether living in Zilargo or in a feyspire. though,
gnomes value their kin and usually live with members
of their extended family. Gnome bloodlines
are often intertwined through a network of shared
secrets and favors.

Gnomes that bear the Mark of Scribing comprise
House Sivis. The gnomes use the mark’s powers to
help facilitate diplomacy, as a tool in the-transportation
of important messages, and as a means of
verifying important documents.
