It is said that the hermit-wizards of Khezh knew a ritual to conduct when they had a singular question. They must write their question on rose petals and consume them. They must build a ship, christen it the name of their question, then sink it. They must compose a verse in the manner of the stressed poems of Bahim and recite it in front of a ruler. And if these were done in accordance with the strictures, the wizard would become gravid with the bearer of the answer. The person that knew the answer to the singular question, wherever they were in the world, would become gravely ill. They would die in seven days. And on the seventh day the wizard would give birth to a misshapen child whose first words would be to utter the answer.
