One of the five elements within the city that are a part of each avatar. Insight is the focus element of DreamSeers, used to see the true nature of the dreamstate. DreamSeers are the scholars and assassins of the Dream City.
Major Insight Arts
Minor Insight Arts
(Minor arts are learnable to other foci 20 orbits later than Dreamseers gain access to them. IE: Identify is learned at 0rbit 15 for Dreamseers, so other foci can learn it at orbit 35. The art can then be plateau'd once each sphere afterwards, so at 4th sphere and again at 5th, until 20th plateau. Which is the highest other foci can get the art)
History of the Dreamseer
Once upon a dream, there was only three foci, those three foci were Gatekeeper, FateSender, and SoulMaster. The dream was a fairly happy place, but the most advanced the dreamers arts had achieved in the several millennia that the dream had been open was those that are now given to everyone who enters our realm, with exception to the art of know, which is an insight based art. Safe to say, not many arts were created...Before the Greatest of the Gatekeepers went to the SoulMasters asking what was wrong, the SoulMasters looked unto themselves and searched for the creative parts inside of themselves, and couldn't think of things that needed changed. The Gatekeepers then went to the FateSenders who cackled and laughed at the gatekeepers before chasing them off with insults and embarrassment. The greatest of the gatekeepers went back to the SoulMasters and asked them to help in the creation of a new focus that would help balance the practical joking of the FateSenders, and keep track of the deeds that the great Gatekeepers have done, and help the SoulMasters keep track of remedies and potion combinations that would help them heal and work with the essence of dreamers so the SM's began brewing, and the Gatekeepers Meditated until they were blue in the face hoping for something that would relieve there dilemma. After 7days, the SM's walked out of their tent with an Azure-eyed DreamSeer baby to begin a great era in the dream
They called together a meeting of all the dreamers, and they presented the baby to everyone in the dream. And at this meeting is where they gave this baby a name. They called him Ragalieth, whish means in the far eastern tongues on Cloudsbreak the deliverance.
Ragalieth grew quickly, and became strong faster then anyone had imagined, and the Great Gatekeepers began slightly fearing him. The SoulMasters watched him from afar, observing his every move to see if he would turn out capable of their expectations.
Ragalieth was a very quiet man. Much to the GK's satisfaction he found a lot of interests in the doings of others. And he would tell the stories of the feats his GK hunting companion, always leaving himself out of the story except for in key parts explaining what he saw.
Ragalieth would sit for hours watching the SoulMasters mix potions. He would memorize the steps used to mix each ingredient in, and he would memorize the entire recipe for the potions. It wasn't long into his studies that he was keeping a close eye out catching some slight mistakes the SoulMasters would make every now and then. For this, the SoulMasters loved him. He went to the camp of the FateSenders and observed their actions. The FateSenders found this strong tall man a great target for there jokes, because he didn't strike out at the FateSenders pranks. What the FateSenders didn't realize was he was Keeping an eye on the antics that the FateSenders used, and feeling what effect the various arts the FateSenders used to deliver there jokes. This took much patience and Great moral courage not to do something rash to those FateSenders. He began noting the different feels of different arts upon his avatar, and began thinking of things that would stop those from coming about. He spent several years laying out the basic fundamentals of how an Art was created. He Climbed to a place around the middle of Mt Illapse and found a large cliff face, where he began Chiseling into the stone in large block letters on his theory of how arts were created, and how they effected the person targeted. He had completed his work, and the only thing he had left to do to prove his theory was to create an art, and use it in front of the other people so they would take his knowledge and build upon it, not thinking him mad. Ragalieth was so knowledgeable of the arts and how they are targeted, and what effects different arts had on people, he invited everyone in the dream to the place in front of his inscribing, and he read his writings to all, and many people laughed at him thinking him crazy, this is when Ragalieth began evoking for the first time in his life. He was so in tune with his art, he held the bright light in front of him, making all look unto him with awe. Then he asked all for one volunteer to step forward to meet him, and strike him with a blade, a FateSender quickly did so and began laughing.
As the FS was rolling around laughing, Ragalieth reached one finger out, and put it to the laughing FS's forehead. The FateSenders head exploded into several parts. Leaving his avatar crumpled on the ground as his sphere floated in front of Ragalieth. Complete and utter silence fell over the gathered. Ragalieth looked among his fellows wearily, he then pointed up to his writings and announced once again that everything they needed to know was upon the wall. He then turned, and evoked an art no one has ever seen since. He stood in front of the wall one second, and then his body spread out along his writings, and then he melded into his writings. Much of this history the stories about Ragalieth have been lost, and this is the only one I have been able to find. If there were more DS back then perhaps the stories of ancient histories would be more complete."
