Phase Six


EN

There are three known gnome-like peoples on Tirakan. The Duigoshz live in the swamps near the Xordai mountains and devote their lives to art and science. The gnomes are completely unknown to Humans, tales tell of the people living in a huge underground city. The Gorbs, on the other hand, are scattered all over Tirakan. They live in small communities and avoid any contact with Humans.

What all gnomish peoples have in common is that they are hardly noticed by Humans until the 5th century.

Many myths, legends and stories surround this strange race that lives under the earth of Tirakan. Allegedly, at least according to the Fraxut, the city of the Gnomes Rolltrutz travels on a huge rail network deep under the earth of Tirakan. In many Places, however, this story is dismissed as drunken gnome tales and weasel talk.

Gorbs

This is a people of small dwarf-like people, completely unknown to all other peoples. The reason for this is its hidden life under bushes and in the undergrowth of the forests. The size of Gorbian communities never goes beyond 12 and one may wonder how the many small Gorb clans scattered all over Tirakan maintain contact with each other. The difference between Gorbs and Dwarves is that the former are still far smaller and hairier.

The land the Duigoshz live in is a valley wedge that extends between two mountains from east to west into the sea. High rainfall and the inflow from the mountains ensure a permanently muddy underground here, as well as thousands and thousands of water rivulets that seek their way into the valley, lined up next to each other at intervals of a few metres. The top of the valley wedge is formed by a wide, roaring river that is still unparalleled in Tirakan.
