From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



Clingerie are similarly lighthearted to gnomes, however are more serious in terms of major tasks. They prefer to spend the day riding Medium eagles, climbing, and then inventing and executing a short series of pseudorelated pranks, usually targeting the gnomes which often live in their mountain settlements. The gnomes do similar pranks for lighthearted revenge, often producing a "war" between a a clingerie and gnome.

Physical Description[edit]

Clingerie are short and rather willowy, with green, black, or glittering forget-me-not eyes and black or silvered pale brown hair.


Clingerie are generally suspicious of dwarves and humans, and are rather dubious about elves, finding them oddly refined and focused. They are basically two peas in a pod with gnomes, mainly due to their similar outlook.


Clingerie like new concepts, as long as they are not overly drastic, and generally follow rules mildly, usually simply finding loopholes. They are usually neutral good, albeit the fact that they are almost as often chaotic good.


Clingerie live anywhere with mountains, as long as they are outside dwarven or elven lands, and live mainly in gnomish areas. They construct and dig complex systems of caves, ledges, and handholds, only rarely forming anything larger than a village, and are usually found in scattered thorps, with a few hamlets here and there, and a central cluster of villages to cap the "county" off.


Clingerie have no chief racial deity, instead worshipping Garl Glittergold and any god or goddess related to clouds, birds, or mountains.


Clingerie know Common and Clingerie, and most know Gnomish or Dwarven.


Clingerie have a similar approach to names as gnomes, gaining a new name from each member of their family, a personal name, a clan name, and two dozen or so nicknames.
