Gnome: several months ago, we found the mushrooms aglow and we knew a human had entered the town through our tunnels. THAT’S when we thought of our plan. we three are the only gnomes left but we were once a race on many.
Vampire: yeah, many thieves.
Gnome: we are not thieves! we only take when others have too much! a vampire has no reflection so he did not need a mirror! the professor had four of his toys. we only took one. and this world has billions of humans– we only plan to shrink a few hundred to rebuild the Gnoman Empire!
Other Gnome: we’re gonna need more hats.
