My friend has a misprinted copy of Kindred of the East (it has doubles of 2 chapters, and is missing one chapter completely). Is this worth anything? He is interested in selling it, but can't find any info about it.
In their current incarnation, gnomes are largely thought of as clockwork tinkerers, but what if the concept was stretched out a little?
I started musing about gnomes being interested in all sorts of systems, be they mechanical or biophysical.
Imagine a clan of gnomes bent on learning how to increase psionic potential. I could see gnomes fashioning psionic implants or developing powerful alchemical drugs. I can see the two disciplines coming together, a clockwork golem driven by psychokinetic energy! :D
Just a thought, anyone else ever think about this before?
