Also called svirfneblin (in their common language), deep gnomes are a type of gnome that, as the name suggests, live in the deep, far below the surface in chiseled caverns, in the region called the Underdark. They gather in large communities within strongly fortified precincts. They differ from their surface relatives in terms of skin tone and sense of humor. While surface gnomes tend to be cheerful and humorous, deep gnomes are more reserved and cynical, often wary of other creatures or races. With that said, their alignment can still be described as neutral good and they're classified as humanoid.
Deep gnomes can blend with their rocky surroundings due to their gray or brown skin, similar to that sported by drows and duergars. Males are bald and unable to grow beards, whereas females are capable of growing hair. Their height hardly exceeds 3'6" (107 cm) and, ordinarily, they can weight up to 45 lb. They possess darkvision ability, allowing them to see even in total darkness. Their shapeshifting skills, as well as their resistance to magic and detection avoidance, comprise some of their most touted capabilities, thus, they excel in defense and life preservation more than in offense.
On the other hand, due to the environmental conditions in which they live, their lifespan is a bit shorter than that of their kin. While regular gnomes have a life expectancy of over 300 years (and are able to endure even 500 years), deep gnomes only live for 250 years on average.
They also have a very limited sense of historical consciousness, perhaps owing to the fact that the very concept of days or the day/night cycle is unusual to them. The only well-known lore that has been preserved among historians is the history of Blingdenstone, a settlement that came to existence in the Year of Fragile Beginnings.

Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy role-playing game, which takes you and your friends to the realms of battles and wizardry. Dungeons & Dragons, as the most popular tabletop game in the world, is driven by the creative minds of the players, where the only limitation is ones' imagination.
Players can create their personal characters and determine their abilities, which affects how they deal with creatures they might encounter while adventuring through the wondrous worlds.
When playing Dungeons & Dragons, one must not worry about winning or losing. The game has no general end, since campaigns - a storyline or set of adventures, could continue indefinitely. Therefore, a game could be going on for months or even years, leaving the players with an option to meet up whenever they like and take up the adventure where they left off. Even though the group might fall in the battles with invincible creatures, there can be no losers in the game. All players are considered winners, as long as everyone had fun creating unforgettable storylines and enduring experiences.
Considering that Dungeons & Dragons is a role-playing game, each player lies with a task to truly embody the character they are playing. The character that each player chooses, forms the essence of the game for them. To start off the character creation, it is wise for a player to acknowledge which kind of adventurer they want to portray. Considering this, a player should choose themselves a race, for example, a dwarf or a gnome, which is followed by a class, like a fighter or a barbarian. Each race has its own strengths and weaknesses, as well as racial traits.
Every player has the chance to demonstrate their imagination by choosing the name for their character. This might very well be one of the most important decisions one has to make in regards to the adventurer they like to portray. In D&D, the name gives other players an idea about the character's background, personality, and intentions. So selecting a name should not be taken lightly.
In this regard, we have wandered around uncountable realms, collecting information about Dungeons & Dragons naming conventions. Our mission is to lend a helping hand to players, when choosing the perfect D&D names feel overwhelming.
We have created over 60 Dungeons & Dragons name generators to cover both, player controlled and Dungeon Master controlled races and characters.

Our Dungeons & Dragons name generators allow you to choose whether you would like to generate male, female, unisex, or clan names, if the race is known to have gender-specified names traditionally.
Some races that place value on family and traditions are generally known to hold last names. In that regard, where appropriate, our D&D name generators provide your characters with both first and last names.
We hope that you encounter endless adventures, carrying a name that echoes in the realms of Dungeons & Dragons!
