Gnomes in Thassilonian Resurgence

For my campaigns I have the following information available:

An aspect of my Thassilonian Resurgence Adventure Path (TRAP) as the house rule on half-races. Unlike my D&D world where half races are not available, here they are part of the core setting, and as such I have tried to enhance the experience and make it easier to extend over time. Any race, including gnomes can be the base race with the Half-Breed Heritage.
