Among the treasures found in the Pearl Cave in the Archipelago of Dreams there have indeed been the Ide treasures of the Unicorn. Among them, a case with notes made in what some consider gibberish, a mixture of many languages, some truly alien. What in truth these are are notes made by the from their revealing conversations on the arcane subjects with an Ashalan explorer, Hojyn. They contain great secrets of the bygone eras, often encoded, and require deep studies and scholarly background to be gleaned.

True to his word, Jama is returning those to the Unicorn, but is open to who shall be their custodian all the way to Aqahba where they should be returned to Ide Mansuri, the Grand Vizier of the Takrhanate. There would be nothing preventing their study on the way...


---

This is a rather straightforward bet - the winner takes it all, the losers are reimbursed half of their invested VIP... unless the winner decides to share their studies with a given individual they travel with, then the investment can be kept.

The winner earns 1 xp per 10 VIP invested in this bet which can be devoted exclusively to learning the Ashalan language (if the character doesn't have it), and after that to Advantages and Skills which directly reflect acquisition of the arcane knowledge. The possibilities encompass, but are not limited to, various Forbidden Knowledges (including jinn names, Ashalan secrets, location of pre-Wrath cities, old rituals, Sayel, etc.), ranks in Spellcraft, Calligraphy, and fitting Lores, and Crafts (like Sandsmithing) including rare emphases, becoming a sahir through Multiple Schools, also in Ashalan ways (Children of Midnight). The details will be discussed with the GM. Alternatively, it can be used to purchase the Grand Vizier as up to 4/2 Ally. Those who the winner decides to share with benefit from the same palette of options, but for them each XP costs 20 VIP.

As this is an exercise in convincing Jama, for every 25 VIP invested in the bet 5 more are awarded per level of Devotion of Jama as Ally. Since Yajinden is his delegate in the journey east and oversees his interests, for every 50 VIP invested in the bet 5 more are awarded per level of Devotion of Yajinden as Ally.

The bet is now open and will run until 30.12.2017. Please note that this is not the only bet for those travelling east.
