[RPG] What races can gnomes interbreed with


I know that Tieflings and Aasimar can mate and have offspring with Gnomes. I know that most races native to Golarion (human, elf, dwarf, etc.) can't. Purely for flavor, I'm creating a Gnome academic of some standing who has — for the novelty and to further her learning — sought out partners of as many races as possible and had children by them. I'm imagining a large family with siblings who're half gnome and half (devil, demon, azata, garuda, djinn, efreet, etc.)

So… what races do we know can('t) mix successfully with gnomes?

The Book of Erotic Fantasy (a d20 third-party supplement) has a large table detailing the ability to crossbreed between many of the common species. This is a list based on the gnomes' entry. Gnomes are actually one of the most restricted species in the table. They are basically only able to crossbreed with the races that can crossbreed with everyone. As stated by EagleV_Attnam (thanks for bringing it up!), the book is aimed at 3.5 and third-party so it's hardly official but it's likely the closest you'll find.
