The Last Days of Ilam
Hearthhaven is mixed community of humans and gnomes from the nearby Tanglewood forest.
Hearthhaven is somewhat remote and is seen as a largely sleepy city where little of interest happens.
The favorite local passtime of the Hearthhaven gnomes is the snail races. A single race often takes an entire day which the gnomes spend drinking and dancing as the race goes on.
After The Cataclysm Hearthhaven is in danger of being swallowed by the western desert. But the gnomes seem to be in no hurry to leave.
