[Tisk's Wagon, Front Room]
The low ceiling of this room might cause trouble for tall folk, but for shorter Elanthians the effect is merely cozy. Scraps of leather, bits of metal and dust bunnies the size of largish weasels compete for space on the floor, the last sent into a swirling romp whenever anyone moves about. Busy figures can be seen moving energetically behind a gauzy blue curtain that divides the wagon into two halves. You also see a weapon rack with some stuff on it, some wide shelves with some stuff on it, a large cedar trunk, a small plate-clad mannequin with some stuff on it, a small chainmail-clad mannequin with some stuff on it, a redwood bin, a prominent sign, a very small door leading out and a short stand with some stuff on it.


A prominent sign reads:
"Only Gnomes can wear our clothing and armor, so don't think you can wear them if 
you're a Halfling or something."

[Tisk's Wagon, Back Room]
The back room of the wagon is even more crowded and chaotic than the front. This is somewhat surprising, since there is less furniture here and fewer items for sale. Taking up the space which merchandise does not, several Gnomish shop attendants rush about in a continual frenzy, checking on customers, going out to check stock, removing fingerprints left behind by curious customers and bumping into just about everything that crosses their path. A gauzy blue curtain leads back to the front room. You also see a giant mechanical Gnome, an armor rack with some stuff on it, a Gnome-sized mannequin with some stuff on it, an accessories table with some stuff on it and a broad rack with some stuff on it.

These armors are our inexpensive, lightweight modifications of several popular leather armor designs. These are our lightest body armors, so if weight is your top priority, you've found the stuff! The heavier and more expensive stuff is in back. All of our armor fits only Gnomes, so don't think you can wear them if you're a Halfling or something.

Our first attempt at full plate armor! It might not be as protective as other designs, but we've dropped the weight considerably in sizing it for the Gnomish frame.

giant mechanical Gnome

  • Eats metal bars and nuggets. Doesn't always want particular ones for some reason.
  • LOOK Gnome: The giant mechanical Gnome stands about three times the height of a real Gnome and is made of copper and steel with a variety of hinges and clamps holding it together. The craftsmanship is exquisitely precise, belying the tiny hands of those tinkering little Gnomes.
    You also see a large red button on its chest that says "PUSH ME!"
  • PUSH Gnome/Button: You push the mechanical Gnome's big red button. Suddenly a booming voice says, "FEED GNOME!"
  • FEED Gnome: Are you sure you want to give a [metal] to the Gnome? Please repeat the command in the next 15 seconds if you are certain.
  • FEED Gnome: The mechanical Gnome's mouth snaps shut as you feed your pewter bar to it! Wheels start grinding inside the construct as it wobbles back and forth, its arms swaying as if marching to the beat of rhythmic tribal drums.
    The Gnome suddenly stops marching and its giant mechanical arm reaches into a large sack and hands you a gift!
    The cold weight of a [prize] falls into your hand.
    or
    The Gnome begins to shake violently, then spits out your [metal]! It must not have liked the taste!
  • HUG Gnome: The mechanical Gnome whirs and clanks a moment, then raises its arms as if it were returning your hug.
  • [attack] Gnome: The Gnome's mechanical arm reaches forward, grabs you, and throws you to your knees! In the future, remember not to mess with a giant mechanical Gnome.
    Roundtime: 6 sec.
  • [most verbs] Gnome: Um, it's just a machine, but I am sure it appreciates the sentiment.
