I am trying to find a particular Dragonlance book that I saw when I was a kid. I remember it being a large volume, possibly multiple books bound as one. I think that the cover had a white border.

In particular, I remember one section relating a visit to a city of gnomes. The book notes that in gnomish culture it is not considered impolite to interrupt someone when speaking because a gnome will prattle on forever if given the chance. I don't remember anything else.

  • quite a few Dragonlance books reference gnomes, is there anything more about this particular book?

  • I don't really remember much more. I this remark about gnomes occurs the first time a group of adventurers visits a gnomish city. I hope that the remark, though somewhat obscure, is unique enough to identify the book.

    Honestly, from my memory of the series, that may well be from the beginning of the series (Chronicles)

Several Dragonlance books make reference to gnomes, but the first one that came to mind here was The Siege of Mt. Nevermind, part of the Chaos War series. It's almost entirely set in Mt. Nevermind, the gnome city, and it's one of the few books where different gnomes get different personalities.

Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, Chaos War was never released as an omnibus edition. The only multi-volume sets I know of are:

It's been a while since I read any of these, though I can go dig them out if any of them sound familiar. Tasselhoff Burrfoit has a magical time travel device during Chaos War and War of Souls that sounds decidedly gnomish, so it would make sense for him to visit Mt. Nevermind during one of those series.

    It is from the original tetralogy. In fact, the passage I am remembering is from Dragons of the Winter Night, which I was able to confirm by looking through it on Amazon. Many thanks.

There was a large edition of Chronicles that was 3 books in one with a white cover

It's likely what you're looking for. If not it'll be a good place to start and, is one of my all time favorite series

  • This doesn’t explain why it might be the answer. More details explaining why it matches the description would help.
