The New Chronicles of Link S. Gnomer.
Hey, LFers! I needs your help!  
 
I'm trying to piece together all the legend and lore of Link S. Gnomer in one place. So this journal entry is kind of a clearing house for any info, threads or other tidbits about our elusive mascot.  
 
I know Jones had a series of pics of Link at one point (the journal now 404's, sadly), as have others, in journals and other threads. If you know of Linky goodness that's not already in this chronology, please comment here and let me know. I'll index them and plug this index into Otterella.  
 
Thanks,  
darkstar
