OK. Let's get basic. Here's my two main characters' descriptions.Baron Ligradi DeMontafe, Undead Warrior."Proud and regal, if wide-eyed and wild, Baron Ligradi DeMontafe takes care with his appearance, raking his straw-dry hair into some semblance of regal grace, keeping his skin clean (if thin and translucent). A steady treatment of Goblin Rocket Fuel has finally begun to kill off the maggots in his chin somewhat, even as the skin hangs loose from the jawbone. Traces of white buildup along the joints in his arms seem to hint at some crude repair of bone damage. His glowing yellow eyes manage to convey a crazed imagination and intelligence above high cheekbones and proud bearing."There, see? One paragraph. Not even a very long one. But that gives you all you need to know -- The man's clearly off his rocker, he's falling apart at the seems, he's a crazy genius. Beautiful. Let's rock with Fulthruttle, my Gnomish Rogue."A young adult, Fulthruttle never really grew into a gnomish frame -- Meaning she's very tiny indeed, not quite hitting three foot tall. Her green hair is braided to keep it out of her face, and a small smattering of freckles compliments her expressive green eyes, which flick back and forth swiftly whenever she's nervous, which is very often indeed. She tends to wear very little makeup, but does enhance her appearance with a tiny bit of pink lip gloss. Her tendency to bite her nails has left her with ragged, unattractive fingertips.If she is not wearing long-sleeved shirts, which is rare, the Icon of the Technology can be seen tattooed on her right shoulder."Not quite as good, I have to say -- But I've yet to update this one. Still, there's the basics of her. Very small, nervous and fidgety. Both of my mains are engineers. What can I say?Still, that's my basic formula: One paragraph, two at the most. Keep them short. Be descriptive, and memorable, but don't overdo it. This is how you rock an RP description. Remember, every second someone spends reading your description is a second they're not roleplaying with you.

Three feet is short for a gnome? I thought that was about average? I mean, humans are around five-and-a-half to six feet, and dwarves average about a foot shorter than that, with gnomes, judging by a side-by-side with the other races, seeming barely clearing three-and-a-half (excluding the hair).

@ AmetrineGnome females, according to WoWWiki, range from 2'10 - 3'6". At 2'11", Fulthruttle's on the smallish size.
