The Scholar of Qufu

Postby Belial » Sat Aug 28, 2010 3:54 pm

Rumors had spread across the land of a mysterious stranger. The man was called mad by some while by others he was viewed as a saint. The man had arrived from nowhere, yet, he had brought such great riches with him. The rumors claimed that overnight the great assembly of the Temple of Knowledge had been filled with his riches. Pieces of the finest of gold and silver. Statues of ivory and gems of priceless rubies and sapphires. Of grand tapestries that covered entire walls. Yet, no one was quite sure where those riches had come from. No one was even quite sure where even the man had came from. The rumors said he was a mere traveler while others claimed him to be a descendant of Qin Shi Huang, himself. Some said the riches came from the vaults of the Qin treasury while others claimed it was a blessing from the Heavens. Rumors had claimed the man to be twelve foot tall while others had claimed he had skin of otherworldly hue, claiming him to range from blue to red. Yet, rumors was wild and crazy things.

The true of it all was far more impressive. The man had appeared overnight and brought the grandest of riches. Their origin unknown and the man unwilling to explain. The man was a tall and dignified man who was growing old in age. Gray peppered a finely trimmed beard while clean robes of the softest of violets adorned his average frame. The man had come to live within the Hall of Knowledge, taking refuge within the modest quarters of the Confucian temple. Spending his days within the great libraries of the temple while spending his evenings within the assembly, sitting amongst his dwindling treasure and allowing men and women to seek his advice. The man had proved himself willing to give riches to those who sought knowledge, while those who sought nothing but gain quickly found themselves forced away. Once by the point of a sword when a man dared seize a priceless gem. Yet, by the day that grand treasure slowly dwindled away. More and more hauled off by those who sought knowledge. Yet, still he remained within the temple. Giving advice to those who came seeking knowledge. While claiming the greatest treasure of all would come to those who beat his riddles and puzzles. The first riddle was always the same, and it was a rather simple affair. Yet, it had proven enough to chase away those without true knowledge.

"Who was Zhìshèng?" the man questioned with a grin.

(First!)

At last! This is truly what his life had been meant for! This single event, the chance at great knowledge! Caring not for the earthly wealth of gold and trinkets, Zu Yanghei was a man on a mission. One who was truly driven to find the answers to this man's puzzles. He would best these riddles, and then soon, he would gain ultimate knowledge. He knew more than well enough, that he would not have any true competition. The scholar had poured over so many tomes, so many books, he would have a far better chance against everyone else. This mystery man, who appeared over night with the vast amounts of treasures, had secluded himself within the library of this temple at Qufu. Perhaps he was finding his answers from the books stored here, and that would bode quite well for Zu Yanghei.

Perhaps he would prove more adept at riddles than he had been at hunting.

Zetie Pi had heard of a man who gave wealth to those seeking knowledge. Curious as to what kind of man did this as much as he was curious about the wealth, Zetie Pi decided to pay the man at the temple a visit.
