Overview

Gnaciens were deer-like creatures with 7 legs. Their prime numbered legs were incredibly delicious and could sustain someone for a long time–BUT ONLY IF the person had the willpower to take only a single bite. To the gluttonous, it was no different than any other meal.  Their non-prime numbered legs were poisonous unto death. What we see here is the remaining wall of an ancient paddock for these gentle creatures.

Access

This plaque is located about 1 1/2 hours north of Madrid.

It is on the north side of V-2511 about 2 miles east of the town of Pedraza, famous for its delicious lamb.

Look for a small spring filling a rectangular pool about 3 meters long. It is not far from there.

Public Dedication

After it was installed on the 26th of July, a wonderful picnic was held. Then all concerned headed to Losana to restore the wall there. This site was soon visited by many right honorable members of the community.

This was Kcymaerxthaere Installation #38, and the first in linear Spain.

Gnacien Paddock

In Kymaerican times, low walls like these would likely have held Gnaciens, seven legged deer-like creatures with a graceful gait but no leap. Raised for food, they were also helpful with mathematical theory. The meat from their prime numbered legs was distinctively delicious and a single bite could sustain a person for a week (only the strong willed, like Nobunaga-Ventreven or Federica the Unifier, could resist overindulgence). However, the composite (non-prime) numbered legs were toxic unto death—as the Lector of Empedraza, famous for his argument that the number 1 was really a prime number, confirmed at the price of his life. This pen is thought to have been the home of the Royal herd itself. Even today, unconfirmed Gnacien sightings from this vantage point are occasionally reported, particularly before dusk.

And in Spanish . . .

Los Prados Gnacien

En los tiempos remotos del Kymaerican, tras las vallas de cercado como ésta habitaban Gnaciens, criaturas de siete patas de aspecto similar a los ciervos, que poseían un andar gracioso aunque eran incapaces de brincar. El objeto de su crianza era la alimentación; sin embargo, también eran de gran ayuda para el desarrollo de teorías matemáticas. La carne de las patas que representaban números primos era de sabor inigualable, y un solo bocado servía para alimentar a una persona durante una semana completa (sólo aquéllos con una fuerza de voluntad inquebrantable, como Nobunaga-Ventreven o Federica la Unificadora, eran capaces de no sucumbir al abuso del manjar). No obstante, las patas del animal que formaban número no primo componían una vianda tóxica mortal. El Lector Eclesiástico de Empedraza, conocido por su defensa a ultranza que decía que el número 1 era en realidad primo, pagó su error con la muerte cuando en un momento de vanidad teórica, se decidió a probar la pata prohibida. Se cree que este redil fue el hogar de la mismísima manada real. Incluso en nuestros días hay informes sin confirmar de apariciones de Gnacien en esta zona, especialmente en las horas previas al crepúsculo.
