The diminutive form of the rock gnome polishing and tuning his curiously complex warhammer is almost fully covered by his yellow, wide-brimmed hat. He favors you with a quick glance—perfectly timed to convey a sense of welcome—as he withdraws an unidentifiable device from a pouch strapped to his half-plate. Grumbling to himself, he makes minute and varied adjustments before nodding to himself in satisfaction. He seems to be creating a piston-driven weapon. Nearby, a boar meticulously constructed from polished steel sits silently with legs folded under its body, completely immobile. A saddle sized for the steel mount hangs from a stand, shining with new oil.
