Journal Excerpt Ten

My company and I have arrived
and been welcomed to the
Gnomish city of Ak'Anon, and I
must say, of all the things I
have seen on this journey the
city of the gnomes is the most
perplexing. The gnomes seem
to be equally adept at
creating material marvels as
well as magical ones.
There are contraptions here
far more mechanically
complex than those built
by any culture on Norrath,
including the advanced
human society from
which I hail. Unlike the high
elves of Felwithe, the gnomes
are eager to show my
companions and I the marvels
they have created, and are far
more curious about our past,



stories, and belongings than
any other peoples we have
encountered here in Faydwer.
I believe the gnomes attitude
toward my company will allow
me to inquire about their
magical practices and perhaps
even view the tomes they have
catalogued in their sorcerers
academy, The Library
Mechanamagica.

Journal Excerpt Eleven

A gnome magician of the
Eldrich Collective, the name
given to their arcane order,
has allowed me entry to the
Library Mechanamagica and
given me quick instruction on
the basics of the gnome
language. In exchange for
allowing the Eldrich
Collective to examine the



elven tomes I acquired in
Felwithe they are giving me
several copies of gnomish
arcane books containing
theories and practical
applications of the magical
arts. I am grateful that my
journey has led me to the
gnomish city despite my
original apprehension and
assumption that they would be
more similar to their distant
relatives the dwarves. It is
apparent that the gnomes are
highly civilized and extremely
intelligent, but I fear they
are a bit too trusting of
outsiders and that congenial
trait may one day cause them
to suffer. In a few days time
my company and I shall once
again meet up with the
half-breed Tolsarian and he
shall escort us back through



the Faydark and Butcherblock
Mountains to the docks so that
we may charter passage on a
ship back to Antonica. That
should give the drunkards
among my companions
sufficient time to recover
from their consumption
of Gnomish Spirits.
From Freeport we shall
charter another ship to
carry us around the coastline
of Antonica and back to our
homes in Qeynos.
I am eager to return to my
study and learn all I
can of these elven and
gnomish arcane tomes I have
acquired.
