    But... But... @Southpaw I use Basilisks as pets on top of Durlag's Tower for my statutory business.

    Talking of which... Would you like to purchase a stoned cat?

    @Anduin: We need to find another cat for me to look at. @metalloman ordered a catue and has already paid.

    What about the gnome who wants you to rob the telescope?

    See, they're like evil and grotesque and stuff.

    to me, gnomes seem like the ultimate in neutrality. They are largely not concerned with the outside world and it's workings, and more focused on their own concerns and inventions. Or so it would seem to me.

    The only thing a gnome is good for is serving his elven betters.

    You sir, are GNOMOPHOBIC!

    Go play with your so called upper tall elves somewhere else!

    Elf this, elf that, pshaw! Bunch o' tree-hugging hippies, I say.

    Which reminds me of one of Kaigan soundset, "Damn forest, always reminds me of pansy elves."

    I vote for a gnome named Gnorm.

    I assume he has a llama familiar named Llary?

    I wish gnomes weren't portrayed almost universally as crazy people. Whether it's stereotyping or just plain lazy characterization, people too often create a gnome character and make it goofy or crazy or eccentric or Chaotic Neutral by default. Their WIS penalty is only -1. I don't think it makes sense for every gnome in the Realms to be completely off their rocker. Is it too much to ask for some down-to-earth, sensible, sane gnomish characters?

    I appreciate Jan Jansen for being serious in his personal quest. Seldom are gnomes given much depth or variety.

    Gotta go with @Anduin. Either he's really a lich, and he gets some serious crazy points for being a *gnome lich*, or he's the gnome equivalent of that guy from just north of the Beregost temple, in which case... well, I think that speaks for itself.

    A drunken gnome lich north of Beregost temple is exactly the kind of hero the world needs.

    ...

    How do you collect these crazy points again?

    Yep. By-in-large the Svirfneblin in the game seem be the only sane ones. At least when you compare them to consider Neb, the Jansen family (as loveable as they are), Crazy Celvan, King Gramm, Tiax, Quaid, and Kalah.

    You've killed me. Destroyed Kalah with your misplaced WIS penalty and beastly greed for insanity.

    But... But... Svrifneblin ARE the craziest!

    I just don't know where to live...

    *crazy voice*

    Hey! Mooooo! Lets go live next to Drow in a big damp cave with massive beetles that could eat us 'n' stuff... wibble.

    *sane voice*

    But surely a nice hill overlooking the fores-

    *Suspicious svirfneblin voice*

    ITS A TRAAAAP!

    Given that crazy seems to be the gnorm for gnomes, then the maddest gnome would seem completly sane and well adjusted by human standards. His name is Gnormal Gnorman.
