  • Leveva and Quimperain were ambushed once again by bandits, and the Sharlayan astrologian is currently recovering in a refurbished alcove on the second floor of the Athenaeum.
  • Lady Leveva's plan to use the news of her attack as an opportunity to teach her students about holding certain cards in their spreads was only half successful. Fortunately, it was your half that was the success. Speak with Leveva again to have her continue the lesson.

Are you doing well, Forename? Well then that at least makes two of us... Ah... I mean... Oh, I cannot keep such important news from you, Forename! Lady Leveva and Quimperain...just last night they fell victim to another ambush at the hands of bandits!
Wait... You don't seem at all surprised to see me here... Did Jannequinard tell you of the attack? Damn the fool! And after I told him to keep his mouth shut! Though, I suppose I must bear some of the fault for ever thinking he could do as he was told.

Now, I suppose you are wondering why I summoned you here to these makeshift chambers, and no, it has naught to do with the bandit attacks it appears are much more common in your realm than I thought.


Now, I was in no way trying to keep knowledge of our attack from you. I was merely attempting, in my own way, to teach Jannequinard the benefits of adding an arcanum to one's spread rather than using it immediately. A skill that requires patience. Something most nobles in this city-state lack, our present host included.


You see Forename, one cannot influence the card the stars will see you draw. A good astrologian, however, knows that he can influence the timing at which that card is read. Adding a card to your “spread” and waiting until the perfect moment to unleash its power can be an effective way of ensuring beneficial results. I trust that you will pick up this technique swifter than Jannequinard.
