Deep Gnomes, are also known as svirfneblin, are legendary because they are so rarely seen. They live deep under the earth, where they create beautiful artifacts made of precious metals and gems, as well as fantastic creations of stonework. They live under constant threat of attack from other races. This has made the svirfneblin wise and agile, if somewhat timid and retiring.
Not your average lawn gnome
