(message: Alexander hears someone coming.) (Gnomes: Five fierce guards of the isle we be! ''Watch for a foreign man,'' said he! With ears and nose, tongue, hands, and eyes. Its nature cannot be disguised. If man it be, then man it dies!) (Gnomes: Taste, Grump-Frump, that we might know, whether friend or whether foe.) (Grump-Frump extends his tongue for a lick.) (He then pulls his tongue back in...) (...thinks over the taste for a bit...) (...then blows a raspberry.)

(wait too long to give an item)

(Grump-Frump: My tongue betrays this one so sly! A man it is! I tell no lie!)

(give the gnome the wrong item)

(message: Alexander holds out the item for the gnome with the oversized mouth.) (Grump-Frump: My tongue dislikes this sour thing, and the taste of man all o're it clings!)

(Gnomes: A man, a man, so say our tongue! To the Realm of the Dead we send this one!) (The gnomes swing Alexander by the arms and legs...) (...up...) (...out...) (...around...) (...and tossed through the air. ) (He goes flying out to the ocean...) (...and lands in the water...) (...with a splash.) (message: The gnomes toss Alexander too far out into the sea for him to get his footing! The currents drag him under!) (Alexander is lost under the waves.) (message: Guess those gnomes couldn't reach a con-SENSES!)
