Rock Gnome is a Subrace of Gnome in Baldur's Gate 3. Rock Gnome has the Artificer's Lore that lets them gain bonuses on History checks. While creating your Character in Baldur's Gate 3, you can choose between 11 different types of Races. Each of them has their special characteristics and some of them have Sub-Races which provide different Features and Traits.
