Mere descriptive research, however accurate, is still more fallible than law.

Game Instructions: Better Equipment and higher Scholar of the Correspondence will improve the rewards here. You will always receive at least some research.

Experimental Lexicography

Some sigils are known and frequently attested. Some can be guessed […] Some are hapax legomena, seen once in the corpus and never again. And some marks can only be definitely identified as Correspondence when you write them […] and discover that they burn.

What may be

The Correspondence encodes what Is, and cuts away false propositions. But it is difficult not to notice the edges of the language – the radicals and diacritics that imply, subtly, what May Be.

Failure

Singed

You might never get used to the burning. The scars may never fully heal.
