Saturday, 4 July, 2009
6th day of Unity, State of Order, Day of Kindness, YFHR 128
Zoe stays hid.
We learn more about the monsters we're fighting from a book titled Sagillium Sagmentium. It talks about Her Serenity, provides maps of Sigil and geometric diagrams that depict eldric runes from the streets.
Minotaurs represent the mazes of Her Serenity.
Formians represent the workers of Her Serenity - the Dabus
Sphinx represents the puzzle that is Sigil
Ouroboros - the unity of rings. The physical embodiment of Sigil.
Cockatrice - there's no wood cut for it, but Her Serenity has the weave of the Cockatrice behind her.
The Control book is a series of unbound pages, each stamped with a symbol of the house. The portal room is hidden until the control book is complete.
27 volume encyclopedia set
We search all the books, but find no plaques.
In the theater room/lecture hall - we find several desks and chairs as well as a stage with a lectern. Therein we find a crystal that controls sound. Linni takes care of it.
