Gnome of the Day: Aberforth
Gnome Lesson of the Day: There are Six types of Gnomes
The most common is the Forest Gnome who rarely comes into contact with man. His physical appearance resembles that of the ordinary gnome. The Forest gnome is a terrific woodcarver and flute player. They live in trees and, like other gnomes, can run as fast as 35 miles per hour.
The Garden Gnome lives in gardens and lawns. His nature is on the somber side, and he rather enjoys telling melancholy tales. If he begins to feel too closed in , he simply goes to the woods. But, as he is quite learned, he sometimes feels out of place there. In order to keep your gnomes from getting bored provide them with different types of entertainment such as flowers to plant and water, veggie gardens to till, a bird bath to swim in, bird feeders to feed the birds....you get the idea.
Dune Gnomes are slightly larger than their woodland brethren and choose remarkably drab clothing. The men usually dress in gray and the women dress in khaki.
House Gnomes have the most knowledge of man, often speaking his language. They know the most about mankind and gnome leaders usually tend to be House gnomes for this reason. The House gnome is good-natured and likes to tease and prank others in a friendly way.
The farm gnome resembles the house gnome but is of a more constant nature and is conservative in all matters.
Siberian Gnomes have been more interbred than other Gnomes and associate freely with trolls. They are much larger than the other types and have an infinitely more nasty nature. It is best never to evoke the ire of such Gnomes for they delight in revenge. In certain regions there is not a single gnome to be trusted.
