RPG Vault have posted part 21 of their Journal about Horizons, Artifact Entertainment's MMORPG. In this edition Creative Director David Bowman introduces three more Living Races, the Gnomes, Elves and Half-Giants:
The Gnomes of Istaria perhaps best represent the future of where Istaria and the Living Races are headed. While they are not typically known as dedicated practitioners of the arcane, they are the race of beings that seem to be taking the forces of magic in a new direction previously unknown - the path of technology. The Gnomes seem to be extremely adept at shaping and binding the forces of magic for the purpose of powering great and exotic machinery and devices. Gnomes also strive to bridge the gap that exists between the realms of magic and technology.
