Realm of Strife™ > Lore  > Norlanin > Wonderkin

The City State of Wunderkin is wonder in its own right. It is a city build out of a mountain, and is in fact difficult to even distinguish as a mountain due to all the “improvements” the eccentric Gnomes that call it home have made. Mount Wunderkin, as it is often called, is the birthplace of all Gnomish ingenuity and science. They live in relative isolation, most other races knowing it’s safer to simply keep your distance. Rumour has it that deep within their city there can be found passageways that connect into the network of tunnels, known as the Angenway, built by their Dwarven cousins in the Kingdom of Angveldt. However while gnomes can often be found living and working in the Dwarven Kingdom, Wunderkin remains a city to call their own, and they are eternally proud of this fact.

Major Factions

There are six major factions within the Gnomish City State of Wonderkin, each vying for power and resources, but most importantly funding for their research. The Steamworks Guild currently holds the most power, and as such their leader Gorbin Turfwaddle carries the title of Prime Facilitator of Wonderkin (short for:  PrimeFacilitatorAndOtherwiseImportantHeadOfStateAndExemplarOfGnomishIngenuity)
