Gnomes have an uncanny ability to disappear in the wilderness. In bushes or other outdoor cover, gnomes can hide with 90% ability. They can also hide in shadows or behind other forms of cover when underground in dungeons or caverns on a roll of 1-2 on 1d6, but they must be silent and motionless. Gnomes can see in the dark with infravision up to 60 feet.
Gnomes speak the common tongue, gnomish, giant, goblin, rat, and their alignment language.
Gnomes may select from the following classes, with the indicated level limits.
