The Tree Gnome Stronghold, sometimes shortened to Gnome Stronghold, also called Ta Quir Priw in Gnomish, is one of the largest cities in RuneScape and is populated solely by gnomes. Its most notable features are the Grand Tree, the Gnome Stronghold agility course, the Gnome Ball field and the Stronghold Slayer Cave. As the largest gnome settlement it is considered the capital of the Gnome Empire.
