Introduction

Ever has man coveted knowledge, and none more so than that of his fate. Thus did he labor to master the skill of foresight—but initial efforts bore little fruit. That is, until he looked to the stars above, which foretell the coming seasons, and learned to read the heavens. Though this gift is known today as astrology, the people of Sharalyan saw fit to not only read the stars, but to write their movements as well. By attuning their aetherial energies to that of constellations, they learned to wield magicks with heretofore unseen properties. Thus was astromancy born—a new form of magick which grants its users power over fate. Employing a star globe and divining deck in their miraculous deeds, fortune always smiles upon these masters of arcana.

Arcana Gauge is Astrologian's Job Gauge.

Arcana Gauge

Left side of Arcana Gauge allows Astrologians to keep track of which card (Arcanum) is currently drawn. An Arcanum is drawn by using the action Draw, and is used by using action Play.

Arcana gauge pve1.png Initial gauge

Upon learning the action Enhanced Draw II, you'll be able to view Astrosigns, located at top of the gauge. Lunar, Solar and Celestial are the three Astrosigns, and one of these will be stored whenever you active card. This only happens while engaged in combat - even though card's effect will be applied, you will not receive Astrosign. Received Astrosign depends on used card.

When three Astrosigns have been applied, you can use them to perform Astrodyne. Your goal is to collect ideally all 3 distinct Astrosigns, as this will trigger better effects of Astrodyne.

Lore

In his quest to master the skill of foresight, man turned his gaze to the truth writ in the heavens. It was the people of Sharlayan, however, who saw fit not only to read the stars but to write their movements as well. By attuning their aetherial energies to that of constellations, they learned to wield magicks with heretofore-unseen properties. Thus was astromancy born—a new form of magick which grants its users power over fate. Employing a star globe and divining deck in their miraculous deeds, fortune always smiles upon these masters of arcana.

History

The famed author of "The Five Ages," the Sharlayan sage Lewphon, devoted two decades of his life from the year 210 to the year 230 of the Sixth Astral Era to compiling a comprehensive study on the merits of star gazing. By analyzing the expansive historical records of man’s attempts to read his own fate, Lewphon hoped to separate the fables of superstition from the more reliable knowledge of evidence-based astrology. What his methodical scrutiny uncovered, however, was that much of the ancients' wisdom was founded in legitimate arcane theory. This revelation shifted the entire focus of his research, and his subsequent efforts to reconstruct and adapt these principles resulted in the creation of “astromancy”—an art which attuned the wielder’s aether to the movement of the heavens. Following Lewphon’s discoveries, the cards of the fortune teller—previously considered an amusement fit only for children—were re-evaluated from an academic perspective. The deck of arcana, with its cards representative of the constellations, was integrated along with the star globe into a uniquely Sharlayan discipline of magick.

Equipment

Welkin Attire

These robes have long been the standard garb for astrologians of the Sharlayan Studium. Designed to conform to the traditional attire of mages, the addition of a crescent moon adorning the hat and a sunburst at the waist allowed the profession of the wearer to be more readily identified.

Atlas

This star globe was built in the fifteenth century of the Sixth Astral Era—a recreation based on the sketches of Lewphon, the father of Sharlayan astromancy. With its intricately designed pieces depicting a plethora of astrological phenomena, this arcane instrument is considered a priceless relic as a work of art alone.

Tenkan Chishi

Commissioned by Rowena’s House of Splendors, the Tenkan Chishi is the work of one of the Doman artisans who assisted with the expansion of Revenant’s Toll. Although the base design of the globe is Eorzean, the finished piece is obvious in its Far Eastern influences. Lacquer has been applied to the metallic surfaces, then baked at high temperatures to produce a uniquely beautiful sheen. Even among similar instruments, the revolutions of its spheres are considered to be uncommonly smooth and accurate, speaking to the extraordinary skill of its creation.

Halonic Priest's Planisphere

The astrologian Lewphon presented this globe to the Holy See as part of his efforts to introduce Sharlayan astromancy to the nation of Ishgard. At Lewphon’s instruction, the Ishgardian artisan who crafted the instrument took pains to capture aspects of the orthodox faith in its design, in a somewhat unsubtle attempt to sway the hearts of the conservative clergymen. Despite the exquisite quality of the work, however, the planisphere was overlooked in the constant flood of offerings made to the church and consigned to gather dust in the corner of some lightless storeroom.

Tricks of the Trade

  • Astral Stasis: By throwing wide the gate to the seventh heaven—the highest of the astral domains—the astrologian favors the battlefield with celestial benediction. This technique is said to hold the power to skew one’s fate towards an almost certain victory.
  • Benefic: Astrologians channel healing energies by attuning their aether to the “benefic” bodies in the heavens. Paired with an affinity for “malefic” bodies to effect destructive magicks, this attunement represents the fundamental principle of astromancy.
  • Gravity: This magick manipulates the inexorable pull of the stars to magnify the force of gravity. Creatures within the area are subjected to a crushing pressure, with the worst of the effects centered on the primary target.
  • Celestial Opposition: Considered to be the very essence of astromancy, this technique binds the astrologian’s aether to the loftiest of heavens. A single tug on this celestial cord alters the patterns of fate, showering allies with fortune, and afflicting foes with sudden adversity.

Leveva Byrde

  • Race (Clan): Hyur (Midlander)
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 16
  • Epithet: Leveva Heavensreader

Leveva’s parents both died early in her life—her mother during childbirth, and her father a scant few years later. This left the orphaned girl to be taken in by her grandfather, Mace, a renowned professor of astromancy. His influence is ever present in her decidedly un-youthful perspective and manner of speech. Burning beneath Leveva’s mature veneer is a fiery ambition to embrace her destiny and continue her departed father’s work to bring astromancy to the wider world.

Jannequinard

  • Race (Clan): Elezen (Wildwood)
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 32
  • Epithet: Jannequinard the Succedent

The sole proponent of astromancy in Ishgard, Jannequinard began his studies in the art during his formative years. Despite his contributions to planning the city’s defense and predicting the movements of the Horde, his colleagues had little time for the intricacies of astromancy, and Jannequinard’s efforts were met with disinterest, if not outright mockery.

Arcana

The cards of the astrologian’s divining deck are known as “arcana.” Each major arcanum is decorated with an illustration representing one of the six elemental heavens, and serves as a symbolic link between the practitioner and the constellations from which she draws power. The text seems to be about the techniques and history of astrologians and their tools. Additionally, there are descriptions of some characters and their backgrounds.

Element Order Arcana Myth
Fire The Second Heaven The Balance The Balance represents the heaven of fire—a realm made prosperous by the blessing of the Traders, but at the same time, one whose equilibrium is maintained by the divine judgment of Azeyma, the Warden.
Water The Fifth Heaven The Ewer It is said that through the fifth heaven flows a mighty river carrying the water spilled forth from the Scholar’s vessel. And in that water is the knowledge of all that have come before and all who will follow—the aether spun from Nymeia’s loom—the aether from which all magicks are drawn and to which all magicks return.
Wind The Fourth Heaven The Arrow The fourth heaven—or the Heaven of Wind—was created atop a lofty peak by Oschon, the Wanderer, whose footsteps had been guided by the Navigator.
Ice The Sixth Heaven The Spear The Spear is the gate to the sixth heaven, where the Fury resides in a palace of ice carved by Her own spear—ice formed of moonbeams collected by the Lover, Menphina.
Lighting The Third Heaven The Spire In the third heaven rises an iron tower of spinning gears and taut springs constructed by the Builder Himself. It is assailed without cease by the jealous Rhalgr, but the Destroyer’s mighty levinbolts only serve to power the spire’s clockwork soul.
Earth The First Heaven The Bole This constellation is thought to be the gate to the first heaven—the heaven which holds the World Tree. Planted by the Matron and nurtured by the Keeper, the World Tree is the source from which life is said to spring.

Astrologian's Panoply

Constellation Turban

The turban is one item that came to the melting pot of Sharlayan through its scholars' study of other cultures—in this case, those of the Near East.

Constellation Top

Each astrological symbol on a scholar’s attire has specific meaning. For instance, the red gemstones on this top symbolize the river of stars which stretches across the night sky, while the prominent metal adornments represent the most significant among the celestial bodies, both fixed and wandering.

Constellation Sandals

An astrologian is defined by her relationship with the stars—our own included—and thus chooses what adorns her feet with care. The soles of most astrologians' shoes, like these sandals, are made of aetherially conductive material.

Form & Function

Given that the citizens of Sharlayan, birthplace of astromancy, have spent hundreds of years studying cultures the world over and gradually incorporating their traditions, it should come as no surprise that an astrologian’s attire appropriates elements from the garb of other Disciples of Magic. For instance, the welkin attire, designed when the school was yet new, strongly resembles the robes of a black mage, down to the pointed hat. The constellation attire, developed much later, is remarkably different, taking its inspiration from Near Eastern garb. This trend may make different sets appear disparate indeed, but they are at least consistent in their motifs, which generally appear in the metal ornaments adorning each piece. Sun, moon, and stars—an astrologian always twinkles like the night sky. [2]
