Many Gnomes were killed in the initial wave of the demonic invasion. Those who survived were sure that they would not last long. Desperate, Gnome leaders united to sent a plea the First World, a place they had long since abandoned. The Gnomes begged the Eldest to save them, and the Eldest responded. The First World opened up in an impressive display of power and took in every Gnome, whether they wanted to go or not. No Gnome knows what happened to them there. For the Gnomes, no time passed between the demonic invasion and awaking in a world they did not recognize.
Fey gifts are never free. The Gnomes do not know the full cost for the Eldest’s intervention. All they know is that they have been forever changed, a piece of the First World following them everywhere they go.
