Special Traits

  • Amphibious. The lake gnome can breathe air and water.
  • Gnome Cunning. The lake gnome has advantage on Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma saving throws against magic.

  • Dagger. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1 piercing damage.
  • Deep Knowledge. The lake gnome can help connect a creature to the essence of nature itself. However, this is not a smooth process. Any good or neutral creature within 5 feet of the lake gnome must make a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw. If they fail the saving throw, their Wisdom score will increase by 1 permanently. However, they will also find themselves hallucinating and getting violently sick. These targets are incapacitated for 1 minute.


Lake gnomes are deeply in touch with the very essence of nature and life itself.

Lake Homes. The lake gnomes get their name from their traditional environment. However, these magical gnomes can also be found in rivers and other wilderness areas.

Unknown Gnomes. Lake gnomes are smaller than any other gnomes. They also move quickly, making them difficult to see. These mysterious creatures can live up to 500 years.
