Sunday Gnomedays

Quick shoutout and cross-post from my main site – every Sunday, I post a new Gnome drawing, and this week it happens to be Tock-related!

20170318_192437-1[1]

Anosmia and Carwen, two goddesses from the Gnomish pantheon. They’ve been mentioned a couple times in the comic, but you can read even more about them over on Patreon. Many other bonus features are also available there!

And most importantly, happy Sunday! May we all have a very faerie day ❤

(And again, if you check out rachelillustrates.com every Sunday, there’s a new Gnome drawing available! Any Tock-related ones will be posted here as well, but still. I missed Gnomevember.)


Gnomish Culture Bonus Material, part 3

Gnomish religion is polytheistic, with a pantheon of many minor and major deities. Here are six of the major ones:

Butrus, god of stone, watches over the mining of precious gems and minerals.

Anosmia, goddess of protection and destruction, is often called upon for defense.

Fizzlebott, god of winds, looks over airships and other technologies.

Kimmer, goddess of soil, governs both plant-farming and wilder nature.

Shipley, god of shepherding, watches over animals, Gnomish families, and parenting.

Carwen, goddess of love and creation, rules the arts and romance.

(Even though there are visual representations of the gods in temples and the like, individual Gnomes are free to envision them and worship as they personally see fit.)

Regular updates resume next Monday!
