    Summary

    Yicheng is almost out of sight behind him when something tumbles out of his sleeve. It's the night-sky obsidian he'd found years ago on his way into the city. A sad smile appears on his face as he bends down to pick it up. Things had been so much simpler back then. Yes, his heart had ached then as well, but it had been a different kind of ache: a dull throbbing in the back of his mind, compared to the chronic fatigue that now wracks his entire body.

    Song Lan sighs and vaguely wonders if he could go back to a time where he still had hope. The obsidian shimmers brightly, as if it had understood his question.

    Summary

    This is written in the Langya Hall Guide to Gods and Monsters in Society, by Ge Hong via planchette writing in commission by the King of Langya in the first year of Yongxi (290 CE):

     

    Here is outlined the signposts of history:

    First: it is through divine mandate that a human would receive the whole world.

    Second: The one who delivers the divine mandate is heralded by the Qilin, the Divine Talent who would award the world to the one it serves.

    Third: because these magical talents tend to upset the social order whenever and wherever they appear, they are often associated with the start of a rebellion...
