“Us feefs need all da luck we can get, an’ der only way to get luck is ter make yer own. An’ vat means magic. If I can get it without touchin’ it, der trap don’t ‘urt an’ I gets da goods. If a bit of a lightshow gets da guards outta da way so’s dey don’t get ‘urt, everybody’s ‘appy, right. An’ nobody – nobody! – duz magic better ‘n’ us gnomeses.”
Who says there’s no Gnome Illusionist/Rogues in 4e D&D?! Here’s Nireb Raeb in all his grubby glory. The Gnome Race is straight out of the Monster Manual complete with his Predator Gnome Fade Away Power, and Illusory Ambush, Grasping Shadows and Phantom Chasm are from the excellent Dragon 364 Illusionist article. Make his Cloud of Daggers illusory (but painful!) too, and he’s good to go.
I’ve left his Stealth a little low because….. he smells. Grubby gnomey thing. Ugh!
Dirty Little Secret: He’s dirty. He’s little. He’s secretive. My work is done.
Inspired by Uncle Bear. Berin, this one’s for you.
