A Gnome CeremorphFor reasons unknown, ceremorphosis can go awry when an Illithid tadpole is implanted in the brain of a Gnome. This deviation might be due to the quasi-magical nature of gnomes, or simply a facet of how their minds work. When the process is warped only slightly, the mind flayer remains gnome-sized and is called a gnome ceremorph. It retains its knowledge of the Gnomish language while becoming able to speak Deep Speech and Undercommon. The gnome ceremorph also retains fragmented memories of its previous life and previous alignment, not to mention a propensity for invention.
