Seven Kingdoms: Seowyn's Crossing
Svirfneblin are an offshoot of the Gnome race. Gnomes once ruled the upper reaches of the Feydark, but they were driven out of enslaved by the Fomorian kings. Some that fled into the Underdark proper were slowly warped by that place’s strange energies, losing color in their skin and becoming largely hairless. They are suspicious and xenophobic of most races, preferring to remain all but unknown.
