This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

Midnight. The inclusion of gnomes is one of several lame-ass things about this setting. Perhaps Izrador has misled his 'chosen ones' (i. e. orcs) because he's a gnome himself?

Gnomelance. Can the Knights of Somnia find this legendary artifact? (N.B. just a toothpick gnomes use to lance boils on their asses.)

Transgnome Space. Fucking useless setting nobody ever played or wanted, only collected.

Carcosa. Not sure how you'd satirize this, but take lots of shots at pathetic OSRians and you'll have a winner.
Don't forget rule no. 2, noobs. Seriously, just don't post there. Those guys are nuts.

Speak your mind here without fear! They'll just lock the thread anyway.

Those settings would all be ripe for satire. I'd add WoD, particularly Vampire, to that list.

G:tM would in any case have a lot of kewl gnome splats with unique kewl powers - Menehune (happy-go-lucky tourism ad refugees with Hawai'ian shirts), Leprechauns (the wise Celtic pagans), Tomtenisse (the Scandinavian "all brawn, no brain" faux vikings), Gremlins (civilized hi-tech gnomes who prefer sabotaging planes over direct bloody axe murders), thinly veiled Smurfs, Melmacians and Teletubbies (the gnomish equivalent to Malkavians?), and numerous others that the company can get its hands on.

Also, Gnomes would just be tragical and misunderstood creatures who just have a different viewpoint, rather than being the forces of elemental evil that they are.

Hmm, well, that's not going to fly, I'm afraid. No one could possibly be interested in an RPG where you play a soul-less monstrosity.

You can't make the Gnomes the protagonists! No, the way to handle LoTR is to have the Gnomes murder Frodo on the edge of his victory, then murder Sauron when he's on the edge of his.

Suddenly, all the races of middle-earth must unite before it is too late, to try to defeat the dark Gnomish kingdom that has risen up in Mount Doom.

There's No Place Like Gnome: A dire plot, concocted by vile Gnomish wizards (Vile even for Gnomes) would turn everything and everyone...Into Gnome.

Gnome, Gnome on the Range: Gnomes are performing strange mutilations of cattle. Authorities say it's just pranksters and wild beasts - But you know better. Can you uncover the Secret of the Gnomish Mutilators...Before it's too late?

Go Big or Go Gnome: Evil gnomes are playing nice with a new, naive alien species of shapeshifters, trying to get them on "their" side. Can you rescue the poor, hapless souls...Before they are convinced to turn Gnome?
The main problem with government is the difficulty of pressing charges against its directors.

Given a choice of two out of three M&Ms, the human brain subconsciously tries to justify the two M&Ms chosen as being superior to the M&M not chosen.

That's awesome! Of course, I could also see some Gnome-vs-Gnome conflict going on there, as there would undoubtedly be a faction of Purist Gnomes out there that would consider the strange creation of pseudo-gnomes by these wizards to be an insult of the worst order, abominations against the pure evil of the Gnomish race.

Oh, definitely. There might even be some "The enemy of my enemy (Is my useful tool, for now)" in there, too. Which is a very dangerous thing...
