31 Nights of Halloween: Gnomes of Zuriq for Savage Worlds

According to the infamous occultist, Lavender Moriarty, the Gnomes of Zuriq were old before humans walked the Earth.  She has presented evidence from several tomes, such as the Incantations of the Sacred Terminus and the Chod'Xoth Dossiers, claiming that they helped the Gods of Olympus in their war against the Titans. 
She even claims to have access to apocrypha, long hidden in the deepest vaults of the Vatican, with verses describing the Gnomes stoking Lucifer's pain and jealousy at God's newest chosen, humanity.

While Moriarty has devoted her life to uncovering the Gnomes, she admits she has no clue how many are alive today.  She has painted a noted series of watercolors, supposedly revealing their true forms, humanoids with the head of an animal, claiming they held no fear in ancient Egypt, where their likenesses were captured in hieroglyphics. She also describes them as powerful psychics who can cloak their true forms.

Lavender is adamant that world we know is merely a charade for a grand game the Gnomes are playing, with all of us as their pieces. That we are neither privy to the rules, no can we comprehend the stakes involved.
