The acropolis buzzes with life in the ancient Kingdom of Gordian. Citizens of the realm gather daily to discuss current events, recent developments and topics of mutual interest. Often visitors pass by the Forum are treated to heated debates between keen minds and sharp wits. Many trek from far away lands to glimpse the future or get their fortunes told. Curious others come to solve puzzles and compete in contests. Others travel here to rest by our cool fountains, sit in the shade and read good books they purchase from the Bookstore at the Library at Alexandria. Still other come for sparing and swordsplay, to learn to tie a new knot from sailors, or to find a prized item for their collections. People come here every day to roam the realm and discover what they can. They find something different every time they visit.

In the southwestern alcoves of the acropolis, fortunes tellers, seers and soothsayers gather to ply their trade. Some read palms. Others study patterns in leaves. Many look to the heavenly stars for answers. Still others use colorful pieces of dried parchment called cards. A few look into the recesses of your soul for answers. All tell you omens good and bad. All is for fun and amusement. They tell you what you want to hear. Be careful in these alcoves. Donít believe all you hear.
