Spoiler warning: information below includes details, such as solutions to puzzles or quest procedures, that you may prefer to discover on your own.


This is a male human with golden skin, white hair, and sparkling sky blue eyes.  He is completely 
nude, but does not seem particularly aware of it. This is Tyrice, also known as Amon Tyrice, also  
known as the Traveler.  His history on Lost Souls extends far beyond the lifetime of most humans. 
He founded and disbanded the Astromancers, a group of magi who trafficked in strange cosmic 
energies.  Many years later, after his supposed death, he reappeared, empowered by unknown parties 
to be able to produce wondrous effects of conjuration.  His followers became known as Travelers,  
for their ability and propensity to roam everywhere in the known cosmos.  Most recently he has  
become something of a high priest for Ganesha, god of freedom, travels, gateways, and obstacles. 
It is unknown whether this is what was empowering him all along or if it is a recent conversion. 
Evidence for the former is that his followers, priests of Ganesha, still call themselves 
Travelers, and exhibit largely the same abilities as before -- though with a decidedly more 
devotional bent.  
You can ask Tyrice to tell you about katakacha, chakras, dharma, karma, karma phala, conceptual navigation, 
Ganesha, obstacles, the map here, or the Travelers.  
To join the Travelers, tell Tyrice that you want to become one.  To leave, tell him that you wish to leave 
them.  Be warned that leaving Ganesha's favor incurs certain penalties until one has regained it.  
Tyrice is an instructor and responds to the following verbal commands:
   Availability inquiry: Tyrice, what do you teach?
   Cost inquiry:         Tyrice, what would a lesson in <subject> cost?
   Instruction request:  Tyrice, teach me <subject(s)>.


I had to be Charitable before Tyrice would allow me to join the Travelers. I was Patterned as well, but I don't know if there was a law/chaos requirement.

His limbs are named head, chest, right arm, left arm, right hand, left hand, right leg, left leg,  
right foot and left foot.  Tyrice is an instructor and responds to the following verbal commands:
   Availability inquiry:  Tyrice, what do you teach?
   Cost inquiry:          Tyrice, what would a lesson in <subject> cost?
   Instruction request:   Tyrice, teach me <subject(s)>.
You say, [- i want to become a traveler -] in beautifully-accented Anglic.
You no longer specialize in scholarship.
You are now a first-degree specialist in abjuration, conjuration, 
goetic investiture, invocation, order affinity, sephirotic affinity, and theurgy.

Conflicts

Forbids the worship of other deities, and thus conflicts with all other Devotional affiliations.

Guild Main Helpfile

        You are a Traveler, a wandering priest of priest of Ganesha, lord of
    gateways, places and remover of obstacles, guide to enlightenment,
    protector to freedom. 

        A Traveler's primary task is overcoming obstacles: overcoming them
    himself, and helping others overcome them.  As he does so, he will find
    himself rewarded by Ganesha in many ways.  These rewards are called
    bestowals, and they are primarily of two types: recurring boons, most of
    which can be acquired by anyone, and more permanent boons that can be
    acquired only by Travelers.  You have acquired twenty permanent bestowals.

        Travelers spend their lives spreading freedom and enlightenment,
    journeying across the world and doing good deeds, in a never-ending quest
    to better their understanding of kharma and dharma.  Doing so brings them
    closer to Ganesha, makes their invocations and powers more effective,
    enables them to discover hidden energy stores in themselves in the form of
    chakras, allowed them to live longer -- and has other, still stranger
    effects.

        As a Traveler you are able to invoke Ganesha to various effects.  See
    'help invocations' for more details.

Invocations

    You are able to invoke Ganesha by reciting certain mantras to him in
Archaen.  More invocations will be revealed to you the more obstacles you
overcome.  Each invocation has its own help file.  You must be in a fairly
calm state to invoke Ganesha; you cannot invoke him while moving around or
fighting.

    The invocations known to you are as follows:

      Gajakarnikaya         Gam Ganapataye        Ganadhyakshaya
      Kadantaya             Kapilaya              Kshipra Prasadaya
      Lambodaraya           Sharananm             Shree Ganesh          
      Vighna Nashanaya      Vikataya              Vahana
      Dhimahi               Pancharatnam

Note: Various invocations improve based on their determinant skills. Sonority represents how close a Traveler is to the maximum effective ability of each.

Dhimahi

the invocation Dhimahi
   
    Energy Costs              : five hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o lord Ganesha, whose massive body is supreme and perfect, to whom we
meditate and pray and bow and revere, let it be known to you that it is known to <target> that the most
severe obstacle brings the most lucid enlightenment
   
Those who are serious about enlightenment can receive an advanced challenge, which has not only an
obstacle and a requirement, but also a taboo and a forfeit.  The taboo is something that must not be
done.  If the taboo is violated, then the challenge ends in failure, and a punishment, the forfeit, is
brought down upon the challengee.  These challenges are considerably more difficult but also considerably
more rewarding than ordinary challenges.
   
For this invocation to work, the target must explicitly trust you; Ganesha will not inflict these
challenges upon those that do not desire them.  If the target completes this challenge, it will be partly
by your action that this result came about, and your karma phala will perforce increase.

Gajakarnikaya

the invocation Gajakarnikaya
   
    Ability Determinants      : 50% of invocation skill plus 50% of theurgy skill plus 75% of charisma plus 25% of intelligence
    Minimum Effective Ability : 100
    Maximum Effective Ability : 600
    Energy Costs              : one hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o lord Ganesha, elephant god whose ears are constantly fanning, who hears
all seven chakras and all seventy two thousand nadis, listen to Brahman, listen to Shakti, and find me
<["any"]/["a"/"an" enhancement type]> principle
   
Once one has a katakacha one can learn to enhance it with cosmic energies such as one needs in various circumstances.
   
The enhancements you currently know are: acid, air, alkali, angelfire, apeiron, atoms and void, burning
sky, cold, cold plasma, earth, exaltation, extropy, fire, force, fractured spacetime, frostflame, goetia,
golden light, golden starlight, heat, khokhmah, light, magma, mist, mud, order, order magick, organic
energy, overpressure, plasma, polarized frost, polychromatic light, protoheat, rainbow, sephirotic, sky
lightning, smoke, solar plasma, starfire, starlight, stellar plasma, structure, sunfire, sunlight,
temporal, true sunlight, ur-fire, void, and water.

Gam Ganapataye

the invocation Gam Ganapataye
   
    Energy Costs              : one hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o Ganesha, lord of all journeys and travel, who wanders and gathers
knowledge into his great belly, let me mark the significance of this place for my own journeys; count it
as the <nth> landmark to guide me on my road
   
This invocation lets one mark a passage in the cosmos symbolically, as one that one desires to return to
or use as a landmark on one's future journeys.

Ganadhyakshaya

the invocation Ganadhyakshaya
   
    Energy Costs              : one hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o lord Ganesha, he who is the elephant and the serpent and the lion and
the mouse and the peacocke and the horse, placer of obstacles, <target> requests enlightenment and challenge
   
Ganesha can place an obstacle for one who requests it, even if he is not a Traveler himself.  For this
invocation to work, the target must explicitly trust you; Ganesha will not inflict these challenges upon
those that do not desire them.  If the target completes this challenge, it will be partly by your action
that this result came about, and your karma phala will perforce increase.

Kadantaya

the invocation Kadantaya
   
    Energy Costs              : one hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o lord Ganesha, the elephant-faced who is like the sun to the lotus-faced
Parvati, placer of obstacles, grant me a challenge so that I might find wisdom
   
Ganesha not only removes but places obstacles.  The primary mode of adoration of a Traveler is to request
one deliberately in obsecration.  By reciting this mantra, one entreats Ganesha to both show one a path,
and to bar it.  Finding one's way to the end of the path in spite of the obstacle will remove the
obstacle, bring a direct divine reward from Ganesha, and increasing one's karma phala, enlightenment, and
freedom.

Kapilaya

the invocation Kapilaya
   
    Ability Determinants      : 50% of invocation skill plus 40% of theurgy skill plus 10% of weapon lore
skill plus 65% of charisma plus 35% of intelligence
    Minimum Effective Ability : 100
    Maximum Effective Ability : 700
    Energy Costs              : fifty points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o lord Ganesha, god of molten gold and master of all colors, I offer you
obeisance and ask for <"a"/"an" weapon type>
   
Once one has summoned a katakacha, this invocation requests of Ganesha to serve as a divine intermediary
between one and one's katakacha, to communicate to the katakacha the shape that one is envisioning.  The
shapes that one knows are dependent on one's weapon lore.

Kshipra Prasadaya

the invocation Kshipra Prasadaya
   
    Ability Determinants      : 50% of invocation skill plus 25% of conjuration skill plus 25% of theurgy
skill plus 25% of intelligence plus 75% of charisma
    Maximum Effective Ability : 700
    Energy Costs              : one hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o lord Ganesha, master of all obstacles, for whom chaos never was and
never will be, in my time of need help me see the path that I walk, the path starting when the world
hatched from its egg, ending in eternity
   
This invocation entreats Ganesha for a brahmanda-prakasa, a world-egg, a reflection of the cosmos at its
birth.  The brahmanda-brakasa manifests itself as an aura of starry, cosmic energy.  The aura will
protect one in innumerable ways.  The higher one's karma phala, and ability with this invocation, the
more effective its protection will be.  To release the brahmanda-prakasa, repeat the invocation.
   
The aura can synchronize with one's chakras, if one has any.  Which chakra it is attuned to will affect
its protective properties.  To change the chakra it is attuned to, simply tap the desired chakra.

Lambodaraya

the invocation Lambodaraya
   
    Energy Costs              : five hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o leader of the pramada ganas, one who is the color of vermillion, with
an elephant's visage and a hanging belly, I offer obeisance to you first, and ask that you grant me a
tool with which I may seek more knowledge
   
This invocation requests of Ganesha that he offer you a divinely mediated bond with a katakacha, a
sessile, metamorphic creature made of beautiful crystal.  Katakacha are an ancient people who were nearly
driven to extinction by the kazar until a climatic intervention by Ganesha preserved them.  They aid the
Travelers out of gratitude for this act.
   
A katakacha conjured in this manner will remain with one permanently.  If it is ever lost or destroyed
for some reason, performing this mantra again will conjure another.

Pancharatnam

 the invocation Pancharatnam
    
    Energy Costs              : five hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o lord Ganesha, who holds the divine joy in his hand as modaka, who holds the 
 digit of Ganapati, send me one  of the five gems that encircle Yama, that the vahana you have granted me 
 may be protected from demons and bear me forth upon the paths of enlightenment.
 
   This invocation requests of Ganesha that he send unto your mount a kabatha, a form of divine armour 
   to protect one's vahana.
    
   A kabatha conjured in this manner will remain with one's vahana permanently.  If it is ever lost 
   or destroyed for some reason, performing this mantra again will conjure another.  Reciting this 
   invocation can also banish a kabatha, if one is present upon one's mount.
   
   The resistances your vahana's kabatha will be enhanced with are : earth, entropy and water

Sharanam

the invocation Sharanam
   
    Ability Determinants      : 50% of abjuration skill plus 50% of invocation skill plus 100% of charisma
    Minimum Effective Ability : 200
    Maximum Effective Ability : 700
    Energy Costs              : one hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o omnipresent Ganesha, pure and peaceful doer of all good, shield the
world from fear and anger so that we can see thee everywhere and at all times
   
This mantra entreats Ganesha to destroy any kazar blades present on the invoker and to empower the
invoker as a reward.  The reasons for the effects of this mantra are obscured in history, but it is
generally thought to be related to the sacred nature of the katakacha.
Note: Kazarithax weapons are also destroyed via this invocation, not just the bondable type.

Shree Ganesh

the invocation Shree Ganesh
   
    Energy Costs              : five points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o lord Ganesha, radiant as millions of suns, remove your obstacles from
<my/target's> path
   
The Shree Ganesh mantra allows the Traveler to entreat Ganesha to remove one of his obstacles from those
who have been unable to overcome it themselves.  For one to perform this on a person besides oneself,
that person must explicitly trust the Traveler.
   
An obstacle removed in this way is tantamount to yielding to a challenge.  Ganesha is kind enough to
remove an obstacle from any who need it, but firm enough to show no charity beyond mercy for the yielder.
The challenger will receive none of the benefits for overcoming it, other than the removable of the
obstacle, and the challenger will not be able to receive a new challenge from Ganesha for an extended
period of time -- usually around a day, but sometimes considerably shorter or longer depending on the
difficulty of the challenge.  The challenger will also suffer a decrease in karma phala proportional to
the difficulty of the challenge, that is, equal to twice the amount they would have gained had they
completed it.

Vahana

the invocation Vahana
   
    Energy Costs              : one hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o rider of the five vahanas, I besearch you that you grant me one, that I
may travel to further lands and know more distant knowledge, that I may find greater obstacles and
deliver more obstacles
   
This invocation requests of Ganesha that he offer you a divinely mediated bond with an amphiptere, a
winged serpent, to serve as a holy mount.
   
An amphiptere conjured in this manner will remain with one permanently.  If you ever become separated
from your serpent, performing this mantra again will summon it to your side once more.


You say, [- o rider of the five vahanas, I besearch you that you grant me one, that I may travel to further lands and know more distant knowledge,   
that I may find greater obstacles and deliver more obstacles -] in Archaen.
Tiny iridescent motes of light surround your mouth as it gives form to the words; you feel Ganesha's influence begin to flow through you.
You concentrate and let Ganesha's influence continue to build within you.
A sonorous ring fills the air, as though a chime has been sounded.
You sense Ganesha working across cosmic distances, and feel the beginnings of a strange emotional bond.
You sense a new emotional need opening up within you -- an incompleteness you never fully grasped, the need for a true soulmate of some kind -- along 
with the desire and ability to fulfill that need and to complete yourself.
The huge red-winged green-scaled serpent appears in the air in a burst of prismatic sparks.
The huge red-winged green-scaled serpent flies to your side.
You feel spiritually exhausted but deeply contented, as though you have been made more complete.
The huge red-winged green-scaled serpent is limned with an enormous faintly shimmering dark green dweomer aura.

Vighna Nashanaya

the invocation Vighna Nashanaya
   
    Energy Costs              : ten points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o Ganesha, lord of hosts, who dwells at the base of my spine, who tastes
the kapitta and the jamboophala and remembers all things, reveal the paths you have opened to me
   
This invocation requests of Ganesha that he reminds you of the locations that you have designated as
landmarks on your journey.

Vikataya

the invocation Vikataya
   
    Ability Determinants      : 40% of invocation skill plus 30% of conjuration skill plus 30% of theurgy
skill plus 55% of charisma plus 45% of intelligence
    Maximum Effective Ability : 700
    Energy Costs              : two hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o greatest Ganesha, whose single tusk overcomes the duplicity of
appearance, help me see this world as a dream and a drama, and let me dance across the texts that give
everyone a role, and let me find myself in the <nth> passage I have marked
   
This invocation allows one to use the power of Ganesha to skip across the symbolic space that is the
foundation for all cosmoi, and traverse the universe conceptually rather than physically.  The frequency
with which one can use this invocation depends upon one's ability in it.

Ekadantaya

the invocation Ekadantaya
   
    Energy Costs              : fifty points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o Ganesha, lord of all ancestors, he who sees all places and knows all
troubles, reveal the paths for my cosmic journey that you have lit with your bright face
   
This invocation requests of Ganesha that he reminds you of the locations that he has marked for you as
divine waypoints.

Sloka Bhalachandraya

the invocation Sloka Bhalachandraya
   
    Energy Costs              : one thousand points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o Ganesha, wearer of white garments, who has a complexion like a full
moon, let your four all-powerful hands touch this place; count it as the <nth> divine beacon to light
my way
   
This invocation allows one to set a divine waypoint, a powerful marker for one's travels.  These
waypoints require the direct intervention of Ganesha, bypassing the potentially laborious task of
conceptual navigation.

Note: In order to be granted a divine waypoint, you must have a minimum of 40 regular waypoints + 10 empty spaces for a divine waypoint. Therefore, you need a minimum of 50 total spaces with 10 of those empty, in order to get a chance to be granted a divine waypoint space.

Vakratundaya

the invocation Vakratundaya
   
    Ability Determinants      : 70% of invocation skill plus 10% of abjuration skill plus 10% of
conjuration skill plus 10% of theurgy skill plus 25% of intelligence plus 75% of charisma
    Maximum Effective Ability : 700
    Energy Costs              : five hundred points of spiritual energy
    Invocation Mantra         : o greatest Ganesha, straightener of the crooked path, do not delay in
straightening my path so that no obstacle may bar it, and let me find myself at the <nth> beacon you
have lit for me
   
This invocation allows one to instantly traverse to a divine waypoint.

Weapon

The traveler weapon, the katakacha, can take nearly any weapon form. It will also be periodically enhanced in several ways. Per Twilight, these are endurance restoration, spirit restoration, order favour boost, and a weapon/speed enhancement. The effectiveness of these enhancements is determined by your ability to commune with Ganesha, driven by your 3 affinity skills: order, holy, and magick.

In addition to discharging various elements into one's attacker and performing a coup de grace on mortally wounded opponents, travelers can also obtain a bestowal that allows the katakacha to dispel an opponent's protective enchantments and disarm (and potentially teleport to a random location somewhere in the world, lol) wielded shields. -- Marcosy

Note: At 80% quests and 85% exploration possible, it stops giving them, also at max level you stop getting experience. Pacifists stop getting quests at around 150 qp and never get experience challenges.

  • Experience - You will need to obtain a certain amount of experience to complete the challenge. Potentially 50% of a level with diminishing returns as level goes up.

  • Skill experience - You need to learn skills to complete the challenge. (NOTE: the skill does NOT have to increase in order to get "skill experience")
  • Providing charity - You need to give gold to those who don't have it, in a few different areas. ([OOC Xaolyn] target's gotta be something capable of abstraction with less than 100 gold) - some notable target locations include srazhar in Shatterspire, Ranthan kobolds, Losthaven beggars, and Discordian revellers and guards. most efficient way to do it is 1000 gold each to three "poor" creatures in each area before moving on.
  • Ganesha has given you a challenge, guiding a neophyte in your capacity as a Warden. You will need to help the neophyte advance in levels.

Obstacles

  • Frailty and Weakness - You will have -90% to strength and constitution, and your relevant skills to endurance/carrying capacity/hardiness/etc will take a very significant penalty.
  • Blindness - You will be completely blind.

  • You sense a powerful force proscribing you and anyone around you from using magick.
  • You feel a sudden disorientation, as if the question of where you are is ambiguous and ill-defined. (Decontextualization: Uncontrollable conceptual navigation!)
  • Vulnerability, which selects a random hylic affinity skill and give you a big negative modifier to it.
  • Harassment, which involves gratuitous divine persecution. (An orb of epiphany glides from nowhere toward you and zots your head, chest, right leg, and right foot.)
  • Serenity, which gives you you Anagonia, Aphobia, Analgesia and Anhedonia.
  • Akrasia, which lowers your Ego and Willpower
  • Hesitancy, preventing you from taking the initiative in combat
  • Smallness, decrease strength and vitality and size

  • You sense yourself being bestowed with considerable mastery of physical skills.
