Ancestral Options: Gnomes

A Gnome of Your Own!

In the Pathfinder Second Edition roleplaying game, a character’s ancestry matters more than ever before. Instead of picking a race and sticking with it, players are encouraged to customize the benefits a character gains from their lineage, with a wide assortment of ancestry feats gained at various levels. While the Pathfinder Second Edition Core Rulebook presents plenty of great options for each of these ancestries, the focus on customization means that there’s always room for new and exciting ways to bring your ancestry to the fore.

This book focuses on providing new ancestry-related options for gnome characters. An eccentric and unusual race with ties to the fey, gnomes share the small stature of halflings and dwarves, but with a distinctly magical—and often whimsical—bent. In this book, you’ll find:

5 new gnome heritages, including Shamrock Gnome and Travelling Gnome.

12 new ancestry feats for gnomes, ranging from 1st through 13th level, including Inventor, Gambler, and Elemental Elocutionist.

A new archetype for gnome characters, the order of the pointed cap, which grants gnomes that belong to it a number of magical powers related to a special conical cap that they keep on their person. These caps can be used for storage, as a weapon, to dowse for things, and even as a convenient hiding place.
