Have crazy, will travel

       While dwarves remain my favorite fantasy race, the Blood Moon campaign setting is without them. The close runner up to dwarves are the often maligned and constantly condescended to gnomes. It seems that only orcs or halflings are be treated with more contempt.  In the Blood Moon setting there are races with more inherit attributes that are more awesome and fearsome than three feet of ingenuity. Gith, Dragon Blooded and Changlings are without a doubt more awesome and mysterious than gnomes.  However, gnomes are the originators of elemental-tech and armed with such power and maniacal devotion they are the driving force of freedom in the world. A few thousand years of isolation and paranoia have made them more than ready to sacrifice their sanity to accomplish their goals.
       Professions such as the contraptionists and tinker are all the result of gnomish innovation. Much of my source material for  Blood Moon tech is taken from Steamworks by Korey MacVittie. I have poured over a number of steampunk related PDFs and keep looking for ideas to borrow and incorporate into the setting.
