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.

So now Wizkid: The Cheapening is out with it's own take on Gnomes as villains what do we think?

We all know from Pundit's definative Gnome work that Gnomes are sexless so portraying them as randy bastards obsessed with procreation is clearly inaccurate.

However by making them such despicable villains does Wizkid help the anti Gnome cause?

Thoughts please!

Well now you have...

I'm doing something similar with Gnomes in Courtesans but they are a bit less malevolent!

As I said in the review, I find it appalling and very dangerous misinformation.  Not to mention disgusting.

Has that got anything to do with Gnomes??

The Mother is the Gnome Goddess.

Her power is hillarious, illogical and squicky!

The Gnomes have no gods.  And no mothers, for that matter.  There are no female gnomes; any source that claims so is misinformation.  They reproduce asexually.

I shall put in the disclaimer.

"Gnomes having females, Goddesses or sexual reproduction is an entirely baseless and fictional claim. For the real truth on the horror of Gnomes read Gnomemudrered."
