If there is a core race from the AD&D 1e Player's Handbook that consistently seems to get the short stick it's Gnomes.
Heck, I really want to like gnomes, but I can never seem to see where they fit. Are they Dwarven / Elven hybrids? Remember, they can cast spells as Illusionists.
Are they Dwarven / Halfling hybrids? Could be from the looks of it.
That being said, others look down on the portly halfling (LotFP Weird Fantasy makes them a "Saves" specialist, and ACKS leaves them out as PCs all together?
Is there a particular "core" fantasy race that you would rather not see in the next game you run or play in? Why?
