Seer

[advent class]


Rules governing Advent Classes

The seers are masters of time and space, as well as their own minds. They learn to transcend normal thought, allowing them an unparalelled connection with the physical universe and the creatures therein. The seers cast themselves throughout the galaxy, seeking to peacefully promote their vision for the universe. In order to learn this ki path, one should seek out a seer temple, also known as a Temple of the Eye, and request training from a Grand Seer
