This blog is about the world of gaming miniatures, as seen from my perspective. I've been collecting and painting for over 30 years now, and while my primary focus is miniatures for D&D, I also enjoy many other games that use minis, so we'll be covering those as well. Thanks for stopping by!

Future Character to Play

I have always wanted to play a svirfneblin in our 3.5 FR campaign. There have been a couple of planetouched characters, but I'm really curious how a deep gnome PC would compare to typical characters over the course of the campaign with regards to advancement. Do their racial abilities really make that much of a difference? My inclination is to say yes.

The deep gnomes have fascinated me ever since they first appeared in the D series (D2, I believe). What's not to like about a reclusive, naturally magical race of subterranean gnomes? To me, the iconic character selection would be a deep gnome wizard (illusionist), but I would rather go with a rogue or ranger. Hopefully I don't get to play one anytime soon, because I'm not ready to part ways with my elf wizard at this time.
