Speak to some of the gnomes in Mechagon, enhanced or otherwise. Of my people, ask what they hope for in a leader of our kind. Of our new friends, ask what they appreciate most about their current leader.
From what I have learned thus far, the High Tinker has always led his people by necessity, he never sought or desired the crown. I believe the gnomes should be united once again.
I seek a solution that will be most amenable to all. Will you gather the information I need?
