Re: Tiefling-gnome crossbreeding?
Tieflings normally have human children, not tiefling children.

Tiefling + human = human
Tiefling + elf = half-elf.
Tiefling + orc = half-orc.
And presumably, tiefling + gnome = half-gnome.
If, out of sheer luck, the half-gnome is manifests tiefling traits, they would manifest the same way humans do: any combination of horns, fangs, claws, tails, vestigial wings, discoloured skin or eyes, smell of sulfur, or whathaveyou. I think the more important question is, what does a half-gnome look like?
