A Happy Gnome (5e)

Suggested Price $2.00

A Happy Gnome is a D&D 5th Edition pre-generated character designed for a player’s use in your next campaign. This title was written by writer, editor, and developer Monica Valentinelli (Firefly RPG, Scarred Lands 5E, and Hunter the Vigil 2nd Edition lines).

A. Happy “Hap” Gnome is a silly multi-class (4th Level Rogue, 1st Level Bard) character created for an Extra Life Live Stream charity event during Gamehole Con 2018. The game, which was run by Mike Mearls, included John “JinJur” Kovalic, Lysa “Oooh, I’m an angry fish!” Chen, Pat “Pala-Dad” Kilbane, and Rob “Correllon” Wieland.

To give credit where credit is due, the rules for your Average Happy 5th Level Gnome were calculated with Travis Legge (at Gamehole Con the DAY of the game no less!) using his D&D Beyond account. (Thank you for saving my bacon, Travis!)

In this release, you will find:

  • Sordid character background featuring Hap and his songbird, Broken, and a plot twist (or two)
  • New Bard College! School of Bard Knocks (You can blame John Kovalic for the idea.)
  • Printer-friendly rules write-up
  • Printer-friendly, pre-generated 5E character sheet as a separate download

In the spirit of mischief and merry-making, a portion of this title's proceeds will automatically be donated to Extra Life.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
