Book Text:

Gnomes are well known for
their creativity and
willingness to make the
impossible happen. They
have always walked their
own path, almost oblivious
to the opinions and often
disparagement of others.
Their world is full of
idiosyncrasies, ritual,
habit and relentless
effort. These volumes
explore all of those
aspects as they are
expressed in the symbols,
art, and mechanical
creations of Gnomes from
their first diagrams to
modern Gnomish art. It
appears that the author's
intent is to discover how
these artistic expressions
affect and reflect the
lifestyles and attitudes of



the society. Once those
symbols are discovered, the
author finds creative ways
to put them to use on
armor.

This volume digs deeply
into the symbols Gnomes
have used throughout
history. At a cursory
glance it seems as though
those symbols have changed
significantly over time.
The inventiveness of the
race shows in the dramatic
changes in their art over
time. But the author has
discovered some symbols
that remain constant.
Discovery of these symbols
requires great insight, but
once they are exposed they
become clear. The author
combines these symbols to



create one symbol that
epitomizes Gnomish culture,
and any Gnome seeing it
finds it invigorating and
inspiring.

Among the pages of
discussion about these
symbols is a pattern. This
pattern combines the basic
symbols of Gnome culture
into a powerful image that
has meaning to every Gnome
that sees it. You know
that you will be able to
reproduce this pattern many
times before the book
becomes worn and you must
replace it.

To create pattern for
tailoring armor templates
based on these patterns you
will need this book, a



large bottle of ink, a roll
of vellum, a quill and a
compacted backpack to hold
the patterns you will make.
You'll also need a book
binding to do the work.
