Gnomes, Tinker[edit]

Personality[edit]

Tinker Gnomes are an overly inquisitive and curious race, often getting themselves into danger or trouble. They're always trying to tinker with the way things work or function. They will tinker with magical or mechanical devices just to see if there's a way to make them better or just to see how they work. Tinker gnomes have been known to put so much of their time and energy into research & development of new mechanical devices or new magics, that they have lost track of all time.

Physical Description[edit]

Tinker Gnomes average 3 to 3 1/2 feet tall and weigh about 45-50 lbs. Their skin is a Pale white color depending on where they are living, with either straight or curly white hair, china-blue to violet eyes. Males have soft white beards and mustaches, females are beardless. Both sexes develop facial wrinkles after the age of 50. Tinker Gnomes are very short and stocky, though their movement is quick and their hands are deft and sure. They have rounded ears and large noses.

Relations[edit]

Tinker Gnomes get along well with dwarves, who share their curiosity with mechanical devices, and their dislike for goblins and giants (some hatreds run deep.) They have lost their distrust/suspicion of the taller races -- Humans, Elves, Half-elves and Half-orcs, after years of living in large cities and populated areas.

Alignment[edit]

Good, and lean strongly towards Lawful due to their nature of needing to create new things and investigate the universe.

Lands[edit]

Any Large City

Religion[edit]

Tinker gnome follow any deity who is of good alignment, and represents Building, Knowledge or Craftsmanship. Favored Domains: Magic, knowledge, creation

Language[edit]
