Origin[edit | edit source]

Often associated with the Earth, gnomes have been seen as mythical creatures throughout the world's history. In 1847, Sir Charles Isham brought twenty-one terracotta dwarves manufactured in Germany by Philip Griebel. back to Britain where they were called "gnomes" in English and placed in the gardens of Isham's home, Lamport Hall in Northamptonshire.Nicknamed "Lampy", the only gnome of the original batch to survive is on display at Lamport Hall.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Usually docile, this artifact does well in a garden setting where it will gently promote the growth of plant life. However, when placed next to other gnome statues it will cause a series of events leading to their destruction. It is unknown whether this effect was the cause or the aftermath of the destruction of the other batch of gnomes.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Collected from Lamport Hall display case after a series of mysterious smashing incidents with no apparent causes. Claudia calls him "Lampy, the Gnomestroyer", and says he is a silent avenger here to keep the warehouse free of creepy ceramic monsters.
