Gnome bags protect gnomes in them from entropy meltdowns and a side effect of a Ring of Summons.  If you want to make gnome bags go away, do a thorough job of it.  Don't just take away one of the effects.

A siren creates a flypaper zone around a rock, so a siren controls more area than a rock, or even a line of rocks, for far less points.  Players can't move through rocks, but players can't even move past rocks with sirens on them.

A side thought...Should everything on the grid be BNS-based?
