The SendingStone review
The Deep Gnome, also known as Svirfneblin, is a neutral good creature with a challenge rating of 1/2. They have a modest armor class of 15, wear chain shirts, and have 16 hit points. Their strengths lie in their high dexterity, which is useful in combat, and their ability to speak gnomish, terran, and und languages. However, they have low charisma, which may negatively impact their social interactions. All in all, the Deep Gnome seems to be a balanced and versatile creature that could be useful in a variety of settings.
