    G

  • Ga Nomes. Mintiper Moonsilver. Composed in Year of the Boot (1343 DR).
    A favorite drinking song of gnomes native to the Savage North and as far south as Amn. Verses are added to it regularly by singers to offend any kind of listener. The song speaks to the "forgotten" status of gnomes vis-a-vis other races, while also criticizing those races. The song also hints at a great secret of the gnomes: the Trail of Mists.
