P14816C1T158#yIS1 Half Dwarf, Half Human. Gnomes seem to go beyond their parentage in curiosity, in nimble fingers, and in overall temperament. Gnomes are said to be the reason “why” and “why not” were created by more than a few, because it often sems that nothing can stem or dampen the curiosity of a gnome, the need to understand, the drive to learn. Gnomes love to fidget, to be in motion, to do something.

This does mean that patience is not a trait many gnomes have, which can sometimes get them into trouble in the Halls, and many dread to hear the tales of a Gnome who was born to a Manor House. Like their Dwarf kin, gnomes love to play, to laugh, and express their emotions Unlike their Dwarf kin, they are not very good at keeping that boisterousness within or respecting the privacy of emotions. Like their human kin, Gnomes are passionate and driven to defend others, but they lack patience and tend to be shy on self-discipline.

Half-Dwarfin are also called Gnomes. They are the product of a Dwarf and human getting it on, which produces a slimmer, more intellectually sharper but less physically durable person.

As with other Halflings, Gnomes are looked down on in human societies, and given slim options in Dwarfin families, though neither will ever admit to it. Dwarfin Children are rare enough, but Gnomes tend to be infertile and lack the drive to have children that Dwarfin have. They are around 2% of the total population.

Gnomes tend to enjoy much from their Dwarfin heritage, especially in the making of things. Their overall physicality tends to be appreciated a bit more, and they are often called ruggedly handsome or strongly beautiful. Gnomes are more nimble than full blood Dwarfin or Humans.

Curious and impulsive, gnomes might take up adventuring as a way to see the world or for the love of exploring. As lovers of gems and other fine items, some gnomes take to adventuring as a quick, if dangerous, path to wealth. Regardless of what spurs them to adventure, gnomes who adopt this way of life eke as much enjoyment out of it as they do out of any other activity they undertake, sometimes to the great annoyance of their adventuring companions.


A gnome’s energy and enthusiasm for living shines through every inch of his, their, or her tiny body. A gnome’s personality is writ large in his or her appearance. A male gnome’s beard, in contrast to his wild hair, is kept carefully trimmed but often styled into curious forks or neat points. A gnome’s clothing, though usually made in modest earth tones, is elaborately decorated with embroidery, embossing, or gleaming jewels.

As far as gnomes are concerned, being alive is a wonderful thing, and they squeeze every ounce of enjoyment out of life. Humans might wonder about getting bored, and Elfin take plenty of time to savor the beauties of the world, but gnomes seem to worry that even with all that time, they can’t get in enough of the things they want to do and see. Gnomes speak as if they can’t get the thoughts out of their heads fast enough. Even as they offer ideas and opinions on a range of subjects, they still manage to listen carefully to others, adding the appropriate exclamations of surprise and appreciation along the way.

Though gnomes love jokes of all kinds, particularly puns and pranks, they’re just as dedicated to the more serious tasks they undertake. They’re willing to make mistakes and laugh at themselves in the process of perfecting what they do, taking bold (sometimes foolhardy) risks and dreaming large.



Gnomes are seen by many as bothersome, annoying, troublemakers. Many a gnome Tinker has found his best work derided by others who did not grasp how precise the work was, or how delicate, or how much of an improvement it was.


Gnomes are taller than their Dwarfin side and shorter than their human one, for the most part. They are a stocky people, with higher hair types, very rarely a 1 or 2, and a deeper coloring than their family. They are known for rounder chins, more pronounced, somewhat bulbous noses, and broad grins. Gnomes have thinner fingers than Dwarfin, equally dense bones, and lower centers of gravity than humans, giving them a bit of a “round in the middle” look because of a broad, barrel-like chest.


Half Dwarf and half Human, Gnomes are a bit of both, and they are tough and agile and known for their very perceptive natures among the larger population. Gnomes are fond of many things, and tend to be craftsfolk and studious, private people as a whole. Gnomes adore puzzles – it is common in childhood for them to be given puzzles and to have many games which feature puzzles as a centerpiece.


The inherited toughness of their Dwarf heritage gives them a strong durability, increasing their AC by 1.
