Hey everyone! Welcome back to another round of the Character Codex! We're drawing our way through all 77 race/class combinations in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook. We're showing off the Gnome Cleric and Gnome Druid today. If you've missed any you can catch up HERE!

And now, bring on the gnomes!
Next up is the Gnome Druid. Gnomes in Chronicle are, generally speaking, scholars and scientists. When a gnome comes of age, they choose an area of knowledge to specialize in. With that in mind I had the idea that a gnome druid would be one of those naturalists that was really in tune with nature and lived among the animals like Jane Goodall or Dian Fossey. So that's what I went with.
She's wearing light safari-style clothes instead of a more traditional medieval fantasy style garment. That's fitting with the gnomes of Chronicle who are a little more advanced technologically. At the same time her hair's a slight mess and she does still have the pointy gnome shoes.
I almost drew her with apes, but I thought the inspiration would have been a bit ham-fisted. So, instead I give you a bird (phrasing!) and a new critter I came up with called a badgercoot.
First up is our Gnome Cleric. This little guy is a favorite of mine. He was a character in the original Chronicle comic books published back in 2000. This is Englund. He's a priest of chaos. Not a preist of a god of chaos, just chaos. Now when most people hear "priest of chaos" they think devastation, destruction, and mayhem. Englund is more of the random, stream of consciousness, unpredictable brand of chaotic. For example, what's going on with this duck? Is it a zombie duck and he's turning it or is he turning it into a zombie duck? Hard to say.
Englund started out as a player character in the original Chronicle D&D game and I'm pretty sure he was human, but over the years he's morphed down into what can only be called a gnome and I think it fits him well.
So, that's it for this week! Next week, we'll be looking at the Gnome Fighter, Gnome Monk, and if I can get to it, Gnome Paladin!
