1. walked the paved ways
1The romani master walked the paved ways of the port of cerebria. 2Volcanic cones smouldered.
2. marks of deliberations
1We sailors were exploring an abandoned place of worship at our port. 2We knew the romani master had passed by, for we saw he had painted marks of his deliberations on the walls.
1We encountered a simple abode in which the romani master had undertaken a long period of contemplation. 2We became mute for a considerable period.
1Across the bay rises the rambles of a castle, from an earlier period of our realm. 2Here the romani master was known, from time to time, to conduct experiments with the use of alembics and strong solutions. 3We surmised that the castle had become an athanor, like those the old sages employed.
5. icon to the red hills
1The romani master bid us build an icon to the red hills. 2It became a lookout. 3From this icon, we could espy the mysterious outpourings of these precious hills, and give gratitude for the mysteries of our realm.
6. respite from a harsh sun
1Legend has it that in a simple abode the romani master took respite from a harsh sun. 2In the tenebrous interior of this abode he was able to further his deliberations. 3His discoveries became part of the teachings of the diviners.
In the lowlands south of agalia
, we chanced upon a haunt marked with the sigil of the romani master. 2
Inside, writings on the walls exhorted us to seek “only the eternally further-beyond”.
1The romani master spoke of an axis orthogonal to the four points of the compass. 2He had a compound built that demonstrated this axis. 3It was a place for its contemplation. 4The master had an outside wall marked with the sigils of the diviners and the sailors, indicating that the vertical axis was a fitting topic for their study.
1Near the shores of a pristine cerebrian lake, the romani master gave a discourse to gathered sailors and diviners. 2When it had ended, one by one the sailors left, returning to the tasks of the day, aware that important words had been voiced. 3The diviners withdrew also, but lingered longer on a nearby hillock, in expectation of a sign from fecund nature. 4Presently, they observed a powerful emanation from the lake.
10. expounded on volcanoes
On the way to agalia
, the romani master contemplated in a tent like a cucurbit. 2
One day, to a group of sailors, he expounded teachings on the volcanoes of cerebria. 3
One such volcano he depicted on a placard. 4
Sailors learned that, as much as they needed the volcanoes, the volcanoes needed them.
11. revered the voids
The romani master revered the three visiting voids
He had a placard erected on a vast cerebrian plain, to remind passing sailors of the voids. 3
The placard depicted the sigil of the voids.
12. approached a red-roofed abidance
On his way to the upper lands of cerebria, the romani master chanced upon an abidance with a blood-red roof. 2
In this abidance he deliberated for some time, on his plans to visit agalia
13. made an icon of bloods
1The romani master, working in the red-roofed abidance, made an icon of several bloods. 2This icon depicted, and he dedicated it to, a saint of his realm.
