The Chronicles of Anglarthea - The Legend of the Sages Stone
Grand Gnome David
The Leader of the last village of Gnomes
The Gnome leader Grand Gnome David, met the party after they destroyed the guardian of the gnome village, and allowed Arron Elmsplitter to escape with a relic.
The relic in question is a scroll from ancient times, that was to act as a compass and lead to the supposed location of Celestial sword. Elven loremasters were going to examine it before organizing a party to recover the weapon. The scroll came to the gnomes months ago, when it was found in our inn.
David implores the party get the relic back and even goes as far as to give them a magical glave, and the promise of a golden idol, if they return the relic/scroll to the elves.
