Rock gnomes are the most common and when people talk about the race the image of rock gnome comes into their head. With a forever young heart and always find ways to have fun. Native gnome towns in Rune are often just slightly underground, with connected burrows and wooden dams.
A rarer type of gnome is the forest gnome who is mostly unknown by outsiders. They live in deep woodland stretching from Rune to Pluton and live harsher lifestyles to their brethren. They grow their hair much longer than other gnomes and prefer to tinker with anything they can find, always curious. Both sub types look practically identical and are not often referred to as forest of Rock by anyone who isn't Gnome.
