Strange Stars Races- Savage Worlds Style, Baby- The Gnomes

Another fantastic voyage with Savage Worlding the awesomeness of Strange Stars.



The gnomes are small humanoids who live and mine within asteroids. Their society resembles that of eusocial insects; they have two castes (managers and workers) and only one Mother at a time produces young per clan. A gnome Mother is actually an external womb generated by the mating of a female and male. Gnomes are gregarious and inquisitive but slow and deliberate in their thought process (SS, pg 11).  Trey’s post is here.


Caste System: Choose one- Manager (start with d6 in Smarts); Worker (start with a d6 in Strength).

Likeable: Gnomes are gregarious and friendly.  They start with the Charismatic edge (SWDX, pg 41) even if they don’t meet the requirements.

Infravision: The gnomes are a subterranean race and have evolved to be able to see heat signatures in the dark (SWDX, pg 131)

Natural Weapons: Gnomes have small claws that aid them in burrowing and delving tunnels in the asteroids they inhabit.  Their claws do Str+d4-2 damage.

Small: Gnomes are small and suffer -1 to Toughness.

Agoraphobia: Gnomes dislike open spaces and become panicked when in them.  They have the Phobia (Major) hindrance (SWDX, pg 30) when in open spaces.
