So, this is the fourth post in a sequence that started with analyzing every Rothfuss-blessed mention of the Chandrian’s signs. In the original post, I deemed three sources of information “reliable” within the narrative:

- Pairs Kickstarter– Faen, Commonwealth, and Modegan Decks
- “How Old Holly Came to Be” short story
- “The Lightning Tree” short story
- 2017 True Dungeon at Gen Con, which was set in the Kingkiller universe.
- Felurian Cage Match “fanfic’s” by Rothfuss
