Greetings Chroniclers and welcome to the Character Codex!
We're stepping our way through all 77 race/class combinations in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook. We're showing off the Gnome Sorcerer and Gnome Wizard today. If you've missed any previous entries you can catch up HERE!
We've finished up the gnomes this week! I hope you all have enjoyed a look at the most maligned race in the core rules. I've enjoyed drawing them and getting to show off some potentially interesting ideas with them.
Next week, we're moving on to halflings. Now, I know, I'm skipping ahead, but I have a reason that you will all see shortly. After halflings then we'll do half-elves, half-orcs, and finally humans,
Virtual tabletop players, make sure to pick up some free tokens suitable for use in any virtual tabletop environment. Since this is the last week for the gnomes, the tokens will rotate out and you'll be able to start picking up the halflings.
Want to support the Character Codex? Have me draw your own personal RPG character! RPG Character Sketches are inexpensive and a great way to show off your characters unique qualities. You can find out more about that HERE!
Okay, let's look at some gnomes!
First up is the Gnome Sorcerer. With the gnomes, I wanted to show how they could be more than just the annoying fey folk. They could be cool, tough, comical, and, yes, even sexy. This is our gnome fire dancer. I would imagine she's from the Choreography Division of the Bureau of Liberal Arts. They're all a bunch of reprobates down there.
This was my first real drawing with my new Surface Pro 2. Not too bad for my first go, but you'll see with the wizard that my line quality was still in transition here. I'm really loving the better sensitivity the Surface has in comparison to my old tablet. I can really tell a difference.
Next up is the Gnome Wizard. This guy is the head gnome. Chief Librarian of The Great Library and Director of the Gnomish Nation, Norminthallis of the Bureau of Magical Archival Studies. Norm is a venerable sage who seems to know everything. Many such sages retreat to isolated mountaintops but he chooses to continue his work in the Great Library where he is accessible to any gnome with a question. He is often found walking through the stacks offering tidbits of advice to any researchers and looking over their designs. To him, this ensures that the Gnomish Nation moves forward.
Norm doesn't wear the robes of a wizard or sage. He prefers a more presentable three-piece suit (a new design from the Bureau of Fashion!). He does seem to always wear gloves, one of his quirks. Gnome wizards do not typically join the Brotherhood of the Threefold Path like wizards of other races. Gnomes believe that the Brotherhood is more of a political organization and less scholarly than their own bureaus.
That's it for the gnomes! Make sure to check back tomorrow for a new Chronicle strip! We'll see you next week with the Halfling Barbarian and Bard!
