Environment any Underground
Svirfneblin, or “deep gnomes,” are a reclusive offshoot of the gnome race. They dwell Underground in hidden cities, safe from dark elves and other subterranean races. They have skin the color of gray or brown stone. Males are bald, and females have stringy gray hair. A svirfneblin's ties to the eerie realm of the fey are much stronger than those of their surface-dwelling gnome kin, and this makes them either strangely detached from their emotions or violently random in their outbursts. Svirfneblin have long fought wars against the Duergar, and have a difficult time seeing the difference between Duergar and other dwarves.
Svirfneblin are defined by their class levels—they do not possess racial Hit Dice. A svirfneblin's CR is equal to his class level. Svirfneblin have the following racial traits.
Defensive Training: Svirfneblin gain a +2 dodge bonus to Armor Class.
Fortunate: Svirfneblin gain a +2 racial bonus on all Saving Throws.
Stonecunning: Svirfneblin gain stonecunning as a dwarf (Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook 21).
Spell Resistance: Svirfneblin have SR equal to 11 + class levels.
Languages: Svirfneblin begin play speaking Gnome and Undercommon. Those with high Int scores can choose from the following bonus languages: Aklo, Common, Draconic, Dwarven, Elven, Giant, Goblin, Orc, or Terran.
