Gnomes are said to be protectors against evil for those who work with them. Traditionally placed in gardens, Gnomes have been used as decorative figurines since the 1800s. They are also known as symbols for good luck, and thought to protect one’s buried treasure. In the realm of the elements, Gnomes are the clan of Earth Elementals. Lore speaks of Gnomes as sometimes conniving creatures who, like the Fae, enjoy playing tricks on those who are unkind to Mother Nature.
