It's funny, I don't normally go in for seasonally-themed game content. Halloween gets a pass, though, because creepy stuff and gaming go together like a good ribeye and liquid fucking awesome.

Welcome back to my occasional series of posts with personality traits, ideals, bonds, and flaws specific to D&D races. This time I'm tackling gnomes, but it's harder than you'd think thanks to their low center of mass. Er. Actually it's harder because they're not found in Middle-Earth, so I don't have Tolkien's or Jackson's works to draw upon as inspiration. Every race varies by setting, but some more than others - I personally don't care for the comic incompetence of Krynn's tinker gnomes any more than I like the "comic relief" gully dwarves. As a result, what I've presented here is a blend of the few times I've played gnomes, or had someone play one in a game I ran, and the gnomish writeup in the Player's Handbook.

There's a new Unearthed Arcana feature in town, and it's kind of a double feature: both prestige classes in concept and the Rune Scribe prestige class in particular. As I start this article, I haven't even read the whole thing yet - the Rune Scribe is a dense read, since it has a freestanding "spell list" - so we'll experience this together.
