No it's the Fargate... from the makers of Findependence Day...

Now being that this is my first post in the community, I thought I should make it somewhat profound...

That being said, I'm from New Hampshire, and here we D&Ders seem to have a strong dislike of gnome characters (I've been playing the game for years and have yet to encounter a gnome PC, and rarely have I even come across any NPCs of gnomish heritage)...

So, I'm curious, are there any from New Hampshire who would like to educate me in the finer points of the noble gnome, and are there any other regional biases against PC races in the game??

And please do not fear being a racist for comments against fantasy characters... because that's just silly...

maybe gnomes just don't like New Hampshire? ever think of that?
I've seen plenty in NYC... but then again, I hear all gnomes are dirty and like the sewer system of NYC the best...

Finn Dependance Day? Is that where you celebrate ties with those great Scandinavian-Russian people? I hope so, I need people to drink vodka with. :D

you know, i dm down here in louisiana, and my group hates gnomes with a passion. every time i try to introduce a gnome npc, one of them usually dropkicks the little guy or hands him to the barbarian when he can't find a greatclub. most extreme, however, was when my friend decided to dm and ended up making a whole campaign based on gnomish extermination. not that i didn't mind, of course. flithy gnomes.

the people in my group used to hate gnomes until we heard of the concept of tinker gnomes. now my party travels around with gnomish made rocket launchers that shoot out holy bullets against swarms of undead. gnomes have there uses but they are only fun to encounter if your dm can talk like the underpants gnome's from south park

i enjoy gnomes thoroughly. I enjoy their eccentrism, and tinkers are just cool.

The big one to hate around my area is Elves apparently. I myself enjoy elves, but everything from a Shadowrun campaign I briefly played in, to many players I've played with, despise elves, calling them faggy little pansys.

Last I checked, those were Toreadors. (Vampire reference. sorry.)

I've never understood gnomophobia, either. I thought, though, that it was just my group of asshat friends, instead of a widespread phenomenon.
