Breachgnome - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
A breachgnome is a mighty gnome who is skilled in fighting in cramped conditions. A high-level breachgnome in the right position can hold off a superior force for as long as his strength holds out. Such gnomes are trained to fight alone, and they excel at doing so.
Most breachgnomes are fighters, rangers, paladins, or barbarians - combatants who are well-suited to the demands of the position and can benefit most from the capabilities of the class. Rogues and bards sometimes take this class, but both they and sorcerers, wizards, and druids are normally better off avoiding hand-to-hand combat, so it is rare.
NPC breachgnomes sometimes work in small units, prepared to block off a number of different passages so that their fellows can either get into a better position or even escape. They are almost exclusively found in gnome villages or towns. A PC breachgnome can sometimes be found wandering along, searching for fellow gnomes in need of his unique skills.
