About Dark Gnomish Dark Gnomes are the same height/build of their "common" Gnome brethren, other than they have very dark, almost black skin (like the Dark Elves). The Dark Gnomish language is VSO with adjectives coming before nouns. It is speculated that Dark Gnomish is actually an older (purer) form of Gnomish, than the Gnomish spoken by surface/common Gnomes.
