A strange man showed up at the First Dicasterial Observatorium of Aetherial and Astrological Phenomena (FDOAAP) today. He was injured and quickly tended to. He was of Far Eastern descent.
He introduced himself as Kyokuho, a geomancer! They are mages whom are able to command the elements! Very cool! Anyway he and a senior astrologian are going to share notes. There may be things we can learn from each other.
For now is is being placed in my care. Apparently it was prophetic that friends “new and old” would arrive today. Me being the friend of old and him being the friend of new.
I took him to Rootslake in the South Shroud and showed him our Bole: a giant tree from which all life was created. The geomancers believe all life comes from and flows through the ground we walk on; where as we believe life came from the heavens.
|The Bole. The Source of Life|
Back at the Astrologicum, I informed Leveva of what transpired. She says the beliefs of the easterner are nothing by lies but admits even lies are born from truths. She would like to learn more of their beliefs in hope to uncover the truth behind it. That truth may provide insight into our own school of thought.
There is a symposium going on at the moment and it has Leveva tied up. I will continue teaching the easterner the ways of the west and in turn learn from him. Once the symposium wraps up, Leveva will tutor him.
