The hand symbol from the note and the book, I’ve seen it elsewhere! Why did I not piece this together sooner?
“Ah! I’m thick! Look at me, I’m old and thick! Head’s too full of stuff! I need a bigger head!”

Kehra and I discovered it during our exploration of Kehrahn during our last visit back in November. Our journey took us out through the forest where we discovered that the lake actually sat upon the top of a vast column of rock. As we stood at the edge we found other columns and walkways linking some of them. It turns out there was once a village near the lake column. We had figured there must be some signs of civilization due to the carved head that lies next to the lake.
The village was abandoned but there were carvings left inscribed with the language of the people who resided there. And upon one of the tablets was the spiral hand symbol. The hand symbol was attributed to someone called “Lore” who had saved them from an oncoming evil by moving them to a new world. This turn of events were correlated by a journal we found in the village written in English, the journal of “Lore”.
The problem is more questions now surface. It stands to reason that Lore knows me, so do I know this Lore under a different name? How did Lore access Kehrahn when access is only between myself and my wife?
Perhaps another read through Lore’s journal is needed, perhaps I over looked something.
Now as to how this relates to the current ongoings in Fahets…
Kehrahn has some interesting creatures that the locals referred to as Skyfish, these fish use the water in the foggy air to “swim” through the sky. They had developed a means to capture these fish with nets that resonated the air and the resulting frequencies attracted the fish. Different frequencies attracted different fish.
After I had completed my studied of the Grass Shark, which I have officially named Mangark (Mangrove Shark), the similarities between it and the Shark of Earth was not missed. So I started to ponder the idea of using sound to repel the Mangarks, to keep them at distance and away from the populated areas of Fahets.
So Sophie and I took a trip to Kehrahn to study the “nets” in order to perhaps build a similar device on Fahets.
Of course it was during our wanderings of the village that I walked past the carvings again and saw the hand symbol making the connection finally.
But the theory should be sound, we figure it was probably the sounds of us working that attracted the Mangarks in the first place. So it is just the case of finding the right frequency to repel them. Sophie says she should have something that will work within the next few days but she may have to harvest some parts from Kehrahn to do so.
