Nice anacronym. Wnat to apply to join the Commitee for the Liberation and
Intergration of Terrifying Organisms and their Rehabilitation Into Society?

might be easier to make stage work from a minimum of 1, and any gnome of a
stage greater than 1 is of a stage equal to the Sum of the stages of those
gnomes which go to make up that gnome... so a Stage 1 gnome is basic, a
stage 2 gnome is 2 stage 1 gnomes, a stage 4 gnome is any combination which
equals 4.... bit like conkers... your way is a bit too wooly

link initial HP to stage, so unless defined otherwise, a gnomes initial HP
is equal to its stage (and thus to the HP of all gnomes making it up -
should damage to previously component gnomes reduce the HP of the new gnome?
