Sands of Tchavaal
The gnomes of the Tchavaal all live in Carani. They are a merchentile race, and relies on their ties with other races to survive. Their obsessive nature makes them gifted craftsmen and traders, and are valued members of many mercant houses in the great city.
The gnomes were once a peaceful race in tune with nature, living in harmony with the fey of the desert. As the city of Carani was founded and the fey fled into the duststorms, the gnomes chose to approach the human settlers rather than live on their own. They were quickly integrated into the human population, but as a result they started to drift away from their heritage and reverance of the natural forces. Now most gnomes are wholly adapted to urban life, and few even remembers their history in the wilds.
