Tales of Draeth
Gad was a gnome rogue
Gad was a rock gnome scientist, inventor, and knave. He had the radical thesis that magic and science were at root governed by the same processes, and dedicated his life’s work to exploring the similarities between the two – not hesitating for a moment to steal any reagants or shiny gadgets which might help him in his quest for knowledge. When he heard of the opportunity to serve as a caravan guard for the notorious Gundren Rockseeker, he immediately sprung for it, well-aware of the dwarf’s propensity for collecting magical artifacts. On the way from Cormyr to Phandalin, Gad was slain by goblins in a cave.
