Most gnomes of Mystara fall into this category. Gnome experts are able, through the use of Fantasy Physics (a skill available almost exclusively to gnomes), to craft wondrous items. Gnomes are known throughout Mystara for their abilities to engineer items from the basic to the impossibly advanced, all without having any spellcasting ability. They are also known for the tendency of some of their wondrous inventions to go horribly awry.
At lower levels, gnomes tend to create items that are simple in scope and are often used to accomplish everyday tasks, but with more efficiency and flair. Gnomish communities are often overrun with gadgets designed to do everything from shining shoes, to taking out the trash to cooking pet food. At more advanced skill levels, gnomes are able to design amazing things such as the air ships and gigantic, steam-driven mechanoids. On major projects, gnomes of various skill levels will often work together under a master engineer who oversees the process.
When playing a gnome expert, consult your DM for specific race, class, skill and feat ability rules.
