Half-Gnome (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
"You're a..." "Half-Gnome, yes, now will you stop hitting on me you clumsy dwarf?!" "I, uh, I'm sorry, I thought you were a dwarven female not a half-gnome female." "Did you seriously just call me a girl? Do you not see this well trimmed beard?" "Yeah, exactly! just like a dwarven female." "go eat a rock, dwarf!" -A day at the bar.
Don't ask don't tell how it happened, imagine the cunning tinkering of gnomes with the curiosity and creativity of Humans. They are still rather small, but more muscular than your average gnome, but more civilized than a dwarf thats for sure!
Rare and mistaken Half gnomes have a hard time keeping up their natural delight for being alive, some can be downright dreary, thinking that if you're conscious you must be depressed, or at least cynical. They can fit in almost anywhere though and have extremely good adaptability.
Half-Gnomes are a mixing pot of whatever society they were raised in, if left alone though, they live just like most any gnome with the exception of recording everything they do and caring slightly less about nature.
The names remain the same as any human/gnome/Dwarven like ancestor.
Imagine a dwarf, now imagine a smart, civilized, happy, and precise dwarf with a well trimmed small beard. This is a half-gnome.
