Once in a while when I am walking around on the island I come upon small wooden tablets containing what looks like ancient writing.I believe that these are messages written by the island's gnomes and left in particular secret places for each other to read and reply to.
The tablets seem to function like email, which would suggest that gnomes actually do not make use of the internet.
It appears to be a very difficult form of writing. It must take centuries to learn how to read and write it.
I am pretty sure that all the gnomes have left, since the McNutt's Island gnomes winter in Labrador. I hope these messages were not too important, and can wait until spring.
