The World of Orsus
Most Gnomes reside in the City of Newspring
The Gnomes first arrived in Orsus nearly 800 years ago – just after the start of the Dragon Wars. Specifically, year 6 ADW.
Native to Mechanus, the Gnomes are a race of tinkers and engineers. The first wave of Gnomes was barely 1000 people strong. Today, there are roughly 178,000 Gnomes in Newspring alone, with over 10,000 in smaller outlying farming communities, and roughly 25,000 settled in other areas of the world.
