Aquarius 18. A cloud in the middle of an empty sky has lost its way.
In the year 4195 it was noted that a single cloud appeared in the sky above Peth and was seen to drift here and there in many directions without dispersing. It was watched for a period of 9 days and never grew bigger or smaller, though it did slightly change its shape.
Finally it disappeared. The wise say it was a portent presaging the great Synod of Alchemists that began the next day after the cloud’s disappearance. During this synod a great many problems of alchemy were discussed by some of the greatest minds in Aab, and many of the most difficult mysteries of the Alchemical Art were solved.
