Skull & Shackles
Gnomes are not native to Golarion, they come from a realm of the fey called the First World. Many gnomes struggle dealing with Golarion as it is very different from their homeland. Golarion is a realm cemented in reality while the First World is a land full of possibilities. Because of this many gnomes strive to try and do new things and can usually be found adventuring in some way. Gnomes that don’t adventure, that decide to settle down, suffer a condition known as Bleaching. A Bleached gnome loses motivation and emotions, their skin and hair pales and becomes bland and the condition usually ends with the gnome’s death. Bleaching can be cured if a gnome experiences life to it’s fullest again. A gnome’s appearance can change based on their most recent experiences. Their hair color and skin tone can vary wildly.
