This very short creature resembles, if anything, a misshapen dwarf. Whereas dwarves carry themselves upright, the cave gnome scampers about in a hunched over fashion, peering malignantly up at intruders through bulging purple eyes set on a head seemingly a few sizes too big for the associated body. Do not mistake their size as a limitation, though. The cave gnome regularly bounces high enough in combat to strike giantmen square in the head.
