Well Matt is our team's bard and until revolution started he was the self proclaimed leader of the Party. Matt enjoyed performing in public, women, ale, women and not getting into crazy insane adventures like for example starting a revolution. Until well one day he wrote a very good song about a a local powerful noble in his homeland Haak, who enjoyed this song so much. That he decided Matt should spend the rest of his wonderful musician days, singing humes to himself as a nice and loyal slave. Matt life was forever changed since he was trown right into an adventure, one of the thigns he always avoided. He was so desesperate to escape and return to his life of ale and women, that he even ignored a magical unicorn and had to be convinced to stop a crazy furry necromancer from rising an army of undead gnomes. Despite this was and is a crucial asset of the party, his bardic knownledge rolls saving us from more than one problem, and his songs lifting our morale in the most tight situation.
This flag shows the skull of the Lich, Bura, symbolizing the utter destruction and humbling of the order she created during the Mennasian Restoration. The skull upon the flag therefore represents the power and deathlessness of the monarchy, arising from its mere setback during the rebellious years of the Republic. By displaying the skull of the Lich who manipulated the falsity of Gnomish democracy, the new state flag also discredits the Republic that preceded it.
The background is script in the Sylvan language of the Fae, heaping praise and recognition upon the ancient traditions of the Gnomish monarchy and the Gnomish people's connection to the Fae. The colours gold and blue are those of House Merniso.
The red gemstones upon the crown - numbering five - represent the Godshards, and the triumph of House Merniso and its allies over them.
The old flag of the city of Nomesh has been restored in all of its garishness.
The Royal Guard
The monarch is protected by three orders.
The Immortals - So named because elvish lifespans - for this order is composed of recruits from the Moonleaf Clan and its allies who have taken up permanent residence in Gnomeland. Foreign elves may take up Gnomish citizenship to serve in this guard. Additionally, as the noble elves who fought for Mennas have had their nobility recognized by Gnomeland, it is possible for an elf to become monarch via the elective monarchy system.
The Order of the Dawnflower - The monarch offered Grandmaster Ruren the chance for the Dawnflower to serve as part of the royal bodyguard. The Dawnflower in charge of protecting the royal person should also be open to volunteers from Keshan who wish to accept Gnomish nationality in exchange for service.
The Few - A chivalric order in the House Beilquark fashion. (House Beilquark being the only Gnomish noble house to accept the chivalry system due to human influence). It will also be inspired by Propson's Pine Guild. This group will mostly be composed of knighted Gnomes.
Due to the probable number of defections to the colonies, the navy will recuperate its numbers via employing freed slaves.
The Stepfathers will be supported and funded and used as a means of dealing with Xhas'Wlef and restoring Gnomish influence in its former colonies.
The Order of the Dawnflower will be tasked with recovering the High Queen of Keshan's crown from the Shadow Realm. Dawnflower Varangian Now that a map of the whole world can be drawn, Gnomeland will look to expanding its trade empire throughout the known world.
Mennas has set in motion the setting up of a National Guard, as a federal police force to supplement the army and keep order. By recruiting possible detractors to Mennas' rule, it also converts them into loyalists, since their employment is going to redirect their priorities and goals.
A Confucian style cult to Isichei, the Great Gnomish Philosopher, will be encouraged and promoted, with veneration to other Gnomish philosophers such as Malcolm and the Merniso monarchs. It will therefore, in a sense, serve as an Imperial Cult. It will include other aspects of ancestor worship and legitimize itself by bringing Gnomes back into touch with their Fae abilities which they had all along, but forgot about. This Confucian style cult will receive direct government patronage through the funding of a grand academy to train GNOMISH LAWYER PALADINS. They will draw their faith from their culture, tradition, philosophy and above all, their dedication to the very concept of Lawful Neutral Law itself - employing the power of Mechanus.
Made up of volunteers who mostly hail from Keshan, Turnia, Minaerum and less often, random nations of the Horn. Gnomes from the colonies who wish to return to Gnomeland sometimes manage to do so by joining up with the next to no questions asked Foreign Legion of Gnomeland.
