The Mind's Eye

Throughout the planes, many groups search for enlightenment. One such organization is the Mind's Eye, headquartered in the Concordant Domain of the Outlands. Members of the organization call themselves seekers, and their elite members are known as visionary seekers. They focus on the ultimate journey of self-discovery by seeking out challenges throughout the cosmos.

Seekers believe, among other things, that one must discover true knowledge, but to discover true knowledge, one must first truly know oneself. Though some might interpret the seeker's philosophy as "All knowledge lies within," that doesn't tell the whole story. The seeker's path to knowledge only begins with discovery of the inner self. Once the inner self is adequately charted and understood, barriers to accepting knowledge that the multiverse provides every day will weaken and collapse. For the truly enlightened, it is said that knowledge pours in like water from a burst dam. The seekers prefer the Concordant Domain of the Outlands because it sits at the center of the Outer Planes and provides easy access to the rest of the multiverse. They maintain a base in each of the portal towns.

Lore Of The Mind's Eye

Orb of Omniconsciousness: Like so many organizations, the Mind's Eye has its favored legends and anecdotes important to the philosophy of irs organization. Thus, any seeker soon hears mention of the Orb of Omniconsciousness. Said to be the eye plucked from a deity long dead, the Orb is purported to grant a clear, unsullied view of reality to any that gaze into or through its crystalline focus. According to the lore, though, only those who have already gained a measure of self-knowledge should ever attempt this task. Those of lesser mental mettle risk blasting their minds with knowledge too pure and uncensored to assimilate. Currently, the Orb of Omniconsciousness is rumored to lie in the possession of an individual who has trained the power of his mind to such an extent that he has unleashed psionic power.
