Obtained from the Cryptomancer; initial names filled in by Autumn Rose. Once/run (or once/puttering) per person, anyone may make a "guess" at a filled-in version of the page, and spend a Chi and make a Chi roll using any divination-type skills. For each success, you will get some sort of correction to the page, or verification of the things that you guessed correctly.

Contents

Known

The divine* of names named Autumn Rose performed a divination of names, using her own name and the name of Tokai Takanata, at ____e behest she ___ ____. The name she sought was that of the nemesis of Takanata, *i the Wanderer, and this name was found, with her own and that of Takanata, in the Palimpsest Book, three p_g__ previous to this page.

Li the Wanderer ****ed three s**vants and six of the Firelord's guards on the way to the chamber of the Smoked Glass in the Shrouded Citadel.

The Firelord gazed into the Smoked Glass, seeking a vision of the blockade. He saw first the rea****, ships and ocean, and did not find what he sought: an answer to why the Dragon Army continued the now mostly ineffective blockade. Then his vision shifted to the chi of the blockade, and he saw that even the few ships still in place cut off the chi of the Shrouded Isle from that of the mainland. Then he saw ** the Wanderer slipping from the room, and drew his sword to slay the intruder, but he was weak from the noxio** fumes and called for his guards.

Key: * - Takanata/Charles suggests not guessing these words.
