So, Sadhara once said that she'd write a biography of Jimijuker, the gnomish bardbarian with the magnificent nose. She said it would be filled with wildly conflicting stories; some true, some made up, but all of them fantastic and amazing.

But, since she's a relatively new character in Shadowgate history, there is a ton of things she doesn't know about him, and may never know unless she asked the right people just the right questions... questions that she would only know to ask if she found some obscure story in the first place.

So! Thanks to Lujke's awesomeness with the new Gossip function, the opportunity has arrived for her to learn much about that gnomie. And I ask you to help. Either in game or on here (so that Sadhara can spread the rumor herself), share rumors about the bardbarian, and we'll see what gets put in the book. The more outlandish, the better! They don't have to be stories in which he's the good guy... but, if it's fun to hear or deserves to be told and kept in Shadowgate history, now's your chance! Funny lies and ridiculous truths are all welcome, and the most interesting tales get put in the book.

Keep in mind, if you're unfamiliar with the gossip function, that they can be spread in specific circles (beast, city or wilds), and can be 1-3 tiers of information, just like with information DC checks from D&D. They don't have to be 3 tiers - just the line "Jimijuker has the most magnificent nose in all of gnomish history" would work, but some stories have bigger secrets that most people didn't hear about.

And I hope this inspires you to make more rumors to preserve the history - or pretend history - of your favorite characters, alts, and retired friends.

Ask around about how he got his mechanical hand and also about the Banjoelele that was a trophy in the Rhapsody bar.

These are plot related items, and I don't remember all the details. If someone could add a bit about how these were obtained that would be awesome. My memory fails at the moment.

I suppose I can log into Undelhorn when I get home later and share some of my logs with Jimi in gossip form. I need to put his background in rumors anyway.
