Book Text:

From the notes of Gimblestan,
First Assistant to King Ak-'Anon the XVII, Master of the
Tinkering Arts.
Volume XXXIII.

Although I'm sure they were
sad to see us leave, the
human crew who had brought us
out into the Ocean of Tears
must have been very excited
about our expedition as they
eagerly tossed us into the
lifeboat that would serve as
our base. As we dove deeper
into the chilly waters I
noticed Nantik was turning a
much deeper shade of blue
than normal. It was then that
I realized his AQUALUNG must
be out of air. He had
cleverly assembled this
breathing apparatus using
fine coral mesh attached to a
silk lined steel helm with



some metal twine and gnomish
bolts. A metal rod served as
the mouthpiece, with gills
from a fresh fish inserted
to filter the water. A quick
tug on his support wire shot
him upwards where he managed
to project a respectable
20ft from the surface before
landing near the boat.
Hopefully I would have no
such trouble as I had just
recently made some
modifications to his
breathing device producing an
upgraded version, which I
named a REBREATHER. Using
Nantik's original aqualung, I
applied a lime coated meshing
to absorb the unbreathable
gases I expelled. The
sharkskin tubing connected
the medium sized platemail
helm I was using to an extra



supply of firewater and was
held on tightly by a metal
fastening. This allowed me to
effectively use the same
supply of air for a great
deal of time. As we reached
the wreckage of the sunken
vessel I was mindful to
pickup a few pearls for my
friend Simpkin the jeweler.
He had just finished the
initial design on his
GEMCUTTER and was interested
in using it to make those
wonderful pearl anaglyphs he
is so fond of. By using a
metal rod coated in diamond
dust and held to a cam by a
metal fastening, his
firewater powered apparatus
was able to make precise cuts
in even the tiniest gems
while only requiring a small
bit of grease to reduce



friction. At last we were
ready to begin the salvage
operation.[CONTINUED]
