    It will be interesting to see what the spread is like once they actually create the race models in game.  I'm hoping it will be a little more extreme than what we see in that image on both sides of the spectrum.

    Usually (in other games) the smaller races lose some of the finer detail in armour (unless zoomed right in), and most models / animations usualy clip some of the armour design.

    I hope whatever their size, that armor looks good on all the models / animations and does not clip.

    Nope I like the look of them very different and I love it exactly how it is now.

    I have this burning question,  will gnomes be tall enough to climb normal sized stairs meant for humans?  hehehe

    That's silly haha. Pretty sure we saw that in the last stream. Considering the rise of a human-sized stair is at most 7 3/4 inches, the gnomes would have to be like less than a foot tall to be incapable of climbing that lol. And I'm pretty sure they're gonna be taller than that :P I'm sure gnomes will be able to climb even the biggest castle steps. Istuulamae said in another thread that VR was going to be adjusting the height ranges of some of the races, but I highly doubt they're going to shrink them THAT much haha.

    There is an insightful and relevant post from Istuulamae on a very similar thread here: https://www.pantheonmmo.com/content/forums/topic/4909/more-different-than-gnomes/view/page/1

    He also has said this: "We will have race-specific sliders that will allow for reasonable and appropriate variance... I can't say whether or not the norms of the final iteration will be more to your liking, but I can say that we're not done tinkering with proportions, relative size and so on."
