Synopsis of "THE HERMA: The Life and Land of Nular-in, II"
translated from the Zilephs of Nular-in by Thoth:
(See Act I & II for the rest of the story)
"My adopted sister, Ami-dor, finds me unconscious and lovingly nurses me back to health.
Heeding the augury of a seer, Hu, I leave the underwater city on a giant sea turtle, Tobi, and seek out a mentor to teach me to know myself. I find my mentor, Caguma, in a mountain monastery called Eldar. Caguma is the flying Zentar who saved me and my mother in the desert a long time ago. She teaches me the esoteric traditions and riddles of the ancient monks (or Droshi) who lived in Eldar. Although, Caguma passes down to me the three sacred objects of self-mastery, she dies before telling me the ultimate mystery: the location of the Luva Pyramid."
