There is now a link directly underneath the Micromicrobrewery that says Elder. Clicking on it gives you this:

Gnorbert, the Elder Gnomad

Ah, an Adventurer! Come closer, yougng one, I have a proposal that may interest you.

I seek a messegnger to make contact with our brother, Gn8than the Sk8 Gnome. He cagn usually be found on the eXtreme Slope. Even though he has shamed his family and his tribe by deserting the desert, we still wagnt to get in touch with him. For, though he is agn outcast, he borrowed our brother Chomsky's comic books and gnever returned them. If you bring the comics to me, I will reward you with a valuable piece of Gnomish technology that our Supertinker has developed, which will undoubtedly come in hagndy during your travels.

It appears to start a new unannounced quest. Someone wiser in the ways of the Wiki should make a page for it, as I don't even know where to begin. --Silophant 18:44, 10 October 2007 (CDT)

Could you give me a link to the image of the elder on the map, and the image of him once you click on it? That would be very helpful in making the new page, and updating this one. You can find out the url of the images by dragging and dropping them into the address bar.--Munkel (talk) 19:37, 10 October 2007 (CDT)

The slope goes to the back alley, and then the friars' gate, then the library, and that's as far as I got. Very frustrating subquest.--Gils 19:39, 10 October 2007 (CDT)

The picture's link is /otherimages/gnomes/gnomelder.gif --Beliar Lightbearer 07:18, 30 November 2007 (CST)

Reference?

When consulting one of my linguistic texts today, I came across an interesting poem by one Robert N. Feinstein entitled 'Gnormal Pspelling', which can be accessed on [1].

Now, I am aware that the 'gn' construct is used across the gnomish language as a whole, but as there is not a wiki entry on the gnomes as a race, I thought this may be the best port of call. The poem itself is written as somewhat of a criticism of spelling conventions inherited from Latin that serve no real, constructive purpose within English today, and that resonated with me as being a similar satire to, at least in my opinion, to the gnomes. That said, it is a quite obscure reference, and I am unaware of any linguistic background within the Dev team, but all the same, it might be worth a look.--Chugsworth 12:31, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
