I don't know why people have lost the love for gnomes, they've always been one of my favorite races. It seems like many people have relegated them to third place second bananas. I want to change that with the incarnation of Gnomes for this conversion. The best way to do this is good racial abilities, racial powers and a large bucket full of racial feats.
That's right support. It's one of the things Gnomes lacked. Other races have their own Paragon Paths, legions of books and powers. Gnomes got what... one weapon, and have always had to share a book with other races? Ok, well I'm not going to make a book of just Gnomes, but I'll put more support behind it. Feats! Magic Items! Badgers to talk to!
