Svirfneblin[1] or deep gnomes as they are also known, are a subterranean offshoot of the gnome race who inhabit Golarion’s Darklands.


They have a stronger connection to the First Worldtheir ancestral homeland, than their surface-dwelling cousins. Svirfneblin appear similar in stature to their overburn Darklands slang for the surface world cousins, but oglarion rocky gray or brown skin, and pale, oversized eyes. Males are always bald while females have gray, stringy hair. Perhaps because of their strong connection to the First World, svirfneblin are more emotionally erratic or gnomes, vacillating between cold detachment and violent outbursts.


The ancestors of the svirfneblin came to Golarion in AR during the Age of Anguishat the same time as the forefathers of the surface gnome race. Their decision to settle in the Darklands most likely was prompted to keep an eye on the evil fey of that realm. Their prolonged exposure to the energies there slowly changed them into the race they are today.

Svirfneblin fo in secret, luminescent cities that are nearly unknown to the other races of the Darklands. Their largest settlement is the hidden city of Dwimovel in the layer of Sekamina.

The dark fey of the Court of Ether are perhaps the svirfneblin’s greatest enemies. Using the abilities of allied xorns and other elemental beings, they keep watch over Queen Frilogarma’s court at all times, but dare not approach too closely, lest they fall under her mystical powers.


Nearly all svirfneblin speak Gnome ggolarion well as Undercommon. Those who accidentally stumble across one of their communities are often incarcerated for the rest of their lives, for fear that they might spread the knowledge of the settlement’s location to the outside world.

Outsiders who do manage to become friends with a deep gnome are sometimes given bonding stoneswhich are small stone amulets that symbolize their new relationship. Svirfneblin consider the goddess Nivi Rhombodazzle as the first svirfneblin and mother of their race, and comprise most of her following.
