On Sundays I’m normally posting some illustrations I’ve made to use in roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons. This time folks on Twitter voted for svirfneblin (deep gnomes), so here are some svirfneblin from Out of the Abyss: (a svirfneblin mage, a svirfneblin priest and a svirfneblin ghost):
Svirfneblin are gnomes who live deep under the earth, in search of precious gems. Deep gnomes have to be resilient because their love for gems calls them to live in such a harsh environment. They have a reputation for being very serious and hard-working. Even so, in the midst of the darkness and confinement of the earth, the svirfneblin find ways to celebrate and recreate.
My experience has been that when you’re working in a difficult environment it’s really important to be able to find ways to recreate an celebrate. Can you find things to celebrate in the midst of difficulty?
