This is not a "minor" character. It has an impact upon its world is notable. It needs work. Alot of work. The write up does nothing to answer the questions that immediately come to mind when you read this.
Not enough detail or interesting elements to make it more than a cliche. Sorry. Go to Comment
This is a little cliche, but not bad. If the gnome was played well, with a spunky personality, the PC's could have some fun with him...as long as the GM doesn't overdo it with such characters. Perhaps he could be hired to build something for the PC's, or decide to follow their group around for awhile. Go to Comment
As a new member of a magical organization you get 1-3 magical scrolls to do with them whatever you want. They are unmarked and contain spells you dont know and will only find out at the moment of reading=casting.
