Ugh. Gnomes. The only race I hate more is halflings. I just can't take small sized characters seriously.

Kender... The most shameful of fantasy races that should have never existed. I'd rather room with a beholder...


I have no idea what a kender is.

Dragonlance Halflings. Known for being kleptomaniacs and chatter boxes; and apparently they somehow lived alongside sentient races without them having a Kender genocide...

*shudder*


Down with the oppressive gnomes!

Kobold Liberation Front


Where gnomes come from??? This is a racist lie!!


Kender

I have thought of doing a game with only these races allowed:
As PC races, along with most subraces
Kender
Gnomes
Dwarves
Halflings - the default race

As npc's
Mites
Gremlins

And maybe pc's
Goblins
Kobolds

All the "tall" races are from myth and legends.

They are not halflings, they are an offshoot of gnomes, a subrace really.

Whether offshoots of halflings or gnomes (they were created when the difference between halflings and gnomes was subtle) does not matter. They were tiny menaces of doom with a plucky persona expecting you to forgive their light fingers and non stop trap. I'm usually one who disdains from dismemberment, but they make me want to cut off their little hands and tongues to regain my sanity...


Also only one Kender was well known for partaking of others stuff. It was just assumed that the others did so as well.

Guilt by racial profiling!!!!! The bigotry must end!!

One? ONE? How about all three that I had the unpleasant experience to behold, plus they told all told me that was just how kender are... Never again... The only good kender are either bound and gagged or dead. Dead kender don't pick pockets; not sure about undead kender though. I'll need some strong holy water for that.

I also continue to entreat the folks a paizo to create the gnomageddon adventure path. About the extinction of the gnome race. That would be so awesome.

Can none of you see it?

Are you all Chamberlins and Wilsons, hoping to appease or ignore this monster?!

He's already sent some of them to the oven!!

He seeks nothing short of gnome genocide!!!

{calls up Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper, orders the targeting of Minis Maniac}

Thanks be. Another sane person who sees this for what it is.


Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Hey, hey. Let's not confuse the moral issue by bringing Kender into this, thanks.


Sorry, sorry, but really when are gnomes going to own up to being the trolls that they are?


Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Sure. Paint them as a monster to assuage your conscious for treating them like one. I can think of one other well-known villain who started out by doing the same thing.

We are not trolls, we are lovers.

Wait are you calling me a villain? It's not like killing a gnome would be murder, they don't have souls, there is no gnome heaven. At worst what I do would be considered cruelty to animals. And that's at the very worst. And I mean who really likes gnomes anyway? I've heard people espouse the phrase "Gnomes are cool" maybe the gnomes mom thinks it cool, but no one else really does. Can anyone honestly say garden gnomes are anything but tacky and creepy? No because they are. Judge me all you want but deep down I'm just saying what you all are thinking.


Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

We're talking about gnomes the fantasy race. You know, like the ones in Golarion. Don't try to change the conversation.

Also, I didn't call you a villain. Yet. I'm judging the behavior. You can change that. Stop, before it's too late.


O like the gnomes in Golarion, you mean these guys yeah their not creepy tacky or awful. [/sarcasm]

Baseless racism. Those are mutants, not gnomes.

Those same big eyes and that crazy colorful hair... Who do you think you're fooling with your "first world descendants" story?

Ignorance is bliss. In this case, much, much bliss. Continue on with your ignorance.

I envy you.

You and I know that, but the "gnomes" won't admit they are the descendants of trolls.


Kill the Gnomes now, they're arming themselves.

Aw snap. You've gotta be careful with those bleached ones.

Friends,

While the United Paizonians continue to push for sanctions and sternly-worded admonishments against the gnomicidal dictator Minis Maniac, tens of thousands of innocent gnomes have fled in terror. Displaced and now residing in temporary cardboard shelters, many have no idea where their next AP or PF Society game will come from. Many need first aid -- a spot of touch-up paint, a bit of mold flash trimmed off, or even reattachment of a limb broken off during their transit. But there is still hope... you.

For just $.10 a day, you can sponsor a gnome in need. You'll receive a custom character sheet, filled in by your sponsored gnome. He or she will receive all the medical care they'll need, a guarantee of at least two PFS scenarios or a module per month, as well as their very own slaad larvae to nourish and nurture. Won't you help?

Please message, toll-free, at 1-800-EGG-GNOM, or scry our website: www.eggs4gnomes.com.

Thank you for your generosity,
Gunther "Side" Slaad

Now they're trying to take your money too. It's terrible really. Where that money should go, if you wish to donate it, is to the development of a gnomepesticide to once and for all wipe the unholy, demon bound midgets from our lands.

I think Gnomes are cool.


Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Gnomes in Golarion don't look like troll dolls. Again, the racist tendency to caricature physical features to de-humanize (or, in this case, de-demi-humanize) them is stock-in-trade for genocidal maniacs.


Gnomes are like goblins you kill one and 7 take it's place. Thats why first turn the populace against, subjugate the gnomes into prisons, chemically castrate the entire population and kill on sight any free range gnomes you see. It's the only way to be sure.

The gnomes mom thinks it's cool, but no one else really does. They just say it in a semi-sarcastic way to spare it's feelings, but laugh about behind its back.


If people only knew the true story behind your gnome-hate, they'd see the scared little boy who's trapped inside of his own fear and hate. Get yourself free.

Dwarves or is it Gnomes


I find certain gnomes and kender rather sexy.


Gnomes are just skinny beardless dwarfs.


I think gnome is a pretty cool guy, eh kills demons and doesn't afraid of anything.
