Splinterlands, the popular blockchain-based trading card game, has released a new lore update for its fans. The update, titled Splinters of Praetoria, explores the history, culture, and geography of the major splinters of the game world. Each week, a new splinter will be featured in a detailed article that reveals its secrets and mysteries.
The latest splinter to be unveiled is Pimniq, a frozen land in the northern fringes of the Wild Northeast. Pimniq is home to the marine gnomes, a race of hardy and loyal warriors who worship Ulum, the God of Cold, Winter, and Blizzards. Pimniq is ruled by a chieftain who has absolute and unchallenged authority, and who relies on the advice of elders, shamans, and veteran fighters.

Discover the History, Culture, and Magic of the Marine Gnomes
Pimniq’s economy is based on fishing, ice sculpting, mining, and magic. The gnomes are skilled at carving ice into practical and artistic items, as well as imbuing them with elemental power. They also harvest the bounties of the Colossus Ocean and the Northeast Machair, a vast plain of grass and ice. Their cuisine is spicy and hearty, and its sports are tests of endurance and skill.
Pimniq’s history is an oral tradition that preserves the legends of the gnomes and their god. Pimniq’s architecture is a testament to their resilience and creativity, with buildings made of ice and stone, and decorated with ice statuaries. Their music and dance are rhythmic and haunting, expressing their reverence for the elements and their ancestors.
