While this discipline is often associated with gnomes and their love to tinker and use tools, it is believed the original creator of this complex martial style was no gnome, but a human or at least tall humanoid figure of considerable wealth. He had experienced a tragedy in his youth involving crime and turned his monetary gains into a means of combating the terrors of his past, making sure none may experience the sorrows he did. Thus he became a masked vigilante of legend and lore. He had no magic to his name, but the funds and physical abilities to make hell and the foresight to always have the right tool for the job. The Crazy Gadget discipline is all about using tools, devices, and other oddities in combat, or augmenting pre-existing tools. From grappling hooks to evil repellant spray, users of this discipline keep their tools working by having a grab bag or belt of items always at the ready known as the Gadget Pouch. It is identical to a spell component pouch, filled with unspecified tools and gears to fuel this disciplines abilities.
