Sunrise in Beijing

The Society of Seekers has been contacted by an ailing Chinese master who has requested our services to help preserve an ancient language, used exclusively by women in southern China. Nüshu, as it is called, was developed hundreds of years ago in secrecy to combat the traditional Chinese culture that forbid girls from obtaining a formal education.

In order to prove ourselves to the Chinese master, we must traverse Beijing, visiting various sites and solving puzzles. At each location, you will earn traditional calligraphy brush strokes that you’ll need to duplicate using the brush and parchment provided.

Once completed, you’ll decipher the characters and provide them to the Chinese master for her approval.
