This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Gnomish Alchemy
« on: February 18, 2010, 11:54:41 pm »
In the Gnomemurdered book, I focused a great deal on Gnomish mutations (from contact with Gnome goo), and I went into some detail about Gnomish cookies and the dangerous side-effects they provided.

Are there any other well-known byproducts of Gnomes, or popular products associated with Gnomes, that could be material for unusual effects in a Gnomemurdered game?

Toadstools.  Pipes.  I see the garden variety fishing rather frequently.  Frogs and toads seem to factor into the typical garden setup I see as well.  Maybe if their shrooms aren't strong enough they should be licking amphibians.

As far as byproducts go... perhaps gnomes are frequently kept prisoners in gardens for a specific reason: Their valuable, nutrient-rich, radioactive, (ahem) byproducts.

It may be possible in some cases that Gnomes could be  magically bound in the form of the statues known as "garden gnomes"; but as I detailed in Gnomemurdered, in most cases those statues are either vile fetishes of Gnomish-worshipers (or simply naive fools who think Gnomes are "cute"), or they are actually a type of Gnomish assassin of a very special kind (the blinking gnomes).
