Ravenloft: The Curse of Strahd
Slight, sly tricksters who excel at avoiding notice. The best way for a small creature to survive is to be overlooked. While suffering in servitude to the Giants long ago, gnomes learned to hide, to mislead, and to deflect—and by these means, to survive. The same talents sustain them still, allowing them to prosper in a world filled with creatures much larger and far more dangerous than they are, nothing new to them. Play a gnome if you want to be curious, funny, and tricky, and to rely more on stealth and deception than on brute strength and intimidation.
