I was brought a philosophy book on Gnomish Virtues. One of my minions dug it out the pneumatic restocking tubes that used to keep the Gnomeregan Library organized. The books in there did not get damaged like their counterparts setting out on the shelves.
According to Art Pressparch (the books author) the three primary virtues of the gnomes race are, quote:
Co-operation: Gnomes work together. Each gnome serves a function that facilitates the operation of gnomish society as a whole. All gnomes share increases in utility; all gnomes share in
Elaboration: Gnomes do not like simple answers. The world is a complicated place, and gnomes want to make sure that all contingencies are accounted for. Gnomes want fail safes and redundancies put in to place. Gnome solutions need to have built in options so that changes can be made on the fly.
Pragmatism: Gnome solutions need to work. When a Gnome applies themselves, the do so full force.
I don’t think I agree. Philosophy isn’t my strong suit, but I think there are more than three good things about gnomes!
What do you think? What are the great virtues of gnome-kind?
