Like it. Be sure to check out the freebie from Arion Games, on the round-up post, to get a free paper mini to go along with this.

Thanks for taking part.

I like the concept, but it seems a lot like the PHBII Gnome race, particularly the invisibility power. Could it be tweaked a bit to be more unique?

I tried to make it original as possible, but the power fit too well. I changed it a lot, but I mostly used that ability because the only other thing I could think of was that it's power had something to do with rainbows.

Play it if you like, if anyone complains, tell 'em its a cousin of the gnome.
