The Goblin Scribe (possible geeky observation) Can't Post

One of The Little Eruvandes' (ages 6 and 11) favorite characters in AUJ is that scrawny little goblin scribe. They like his look, they like his contraption, and they think it's funny that the goblins can write. Well, at least one goblin can write.

The thing that makes them laugh the most, though, is that funny little sack-thing hanging under his swing. It's pictured on page 182 of the Weta Chronicles. Here is a picture of a model I found on the web.

After much thought and discussion around the dinner table (Shocked), (well, okay, really, after shoving our faces full of popcorn at the movies) we have concluded that the little sack-thing under his swing is a "poop-catcher". Yes, like carriage horses use.

Is that what it is? Are goblins really that concerned about what falls from the swing of the scribe? The Weta Chronicle didn't say anything about it, but one of the drawings shows a canister containing his "pencils" and he seems to have ample parchment hanging off his "clipboard". So I don't think it is for supplies.

What do you think it is?



I am SMAUG! I kill when I wish! I am strong, strong, STRONG!
My armor is like tenfold shields! My teeth like swords! My claws, spears!
The shock of my tail, a thunderbolt! My wings, a hurricane! And my breath, death!
