Unlike the elvish ones there're no many inconsistencies in TSR products about gnomes, probably because there're less products that speaks about them Anyway there's one problem: GAZ 7 states that Kobolds attacked and exterminated the Gnomes living in the Northern Reaches in 490 BC, while PWA2 (and probably PWA1 and 3 too) under the entry for Oostdok says that the Valoin Gnomes lived in the Northern Reaches until 490 AC when they were exterminated by a Kobold invasion, and this is not a typo (AC instead of BC) because a few lines before it says that they lived in the Northern Reaches until the beginning of the sixth century. In my timeline I assume that the GAZ 7 timeline is the correct one, but that's just my opinion.
490 BC: Kobold clans are driven into the uplands of the Northern Reaches from the west. They overrun and exterminate the gnomes, and occupy their subterranean kingdoms. (GAZ 7)
The Immortals transport the Valoin Gnomes on a Floating Continent in the HW. (PWA2)
* I talked about this at the beginning *
V cent. AC: On Serraine the whole Flamaeker clan is hurled into the Void by an experiment went awry. The immortals transport the clan on a Floating Continent in the HW (PWA2)
778 AC: The flying islands of Valoin and Flamaeker collide giving birth to the new flying continent of Oostdok. (PWA2)
978 AC: Heldannic Knights invade Oostdok. (PWA2)
1010 AC: With the help of Alphatia the Gnomes on Oostdok free themselves from the Heldannic Knights. (PWA2)
What else is known about Oostdok? Do other races live there besides Gnomes? Are Gnomes found elsewhere in the Hollow World? The Timeline mentions Gnomes in Alphatian Neatharum, but where else?Oostdok, HW: 20000 gnomes
Are the Gnomes of Oostdok standard Skygnomes? Would they have access to the type of devices found in the Falun Caves from Gaz7?
