So one time, somebody a question, and I had absurd quantities of fun composing and delivering its answer.
I would like more people to ask the alethiometer things!
You can do it here or on the "ask a character" post, but if you do it on the "ask a character" post the image responses will include helpful tooltips with the name of each symbol, whereas that is apparently not something I can do using BBCode.
I put this thread here so even spoiler-averse people can ask the alethiometer things, but if anyone expresses the slightest interest I will also go make a Spoilerland thread in which you can ask the alethiometer spoilery questions and I can freely dispense hints and Kas-translations of those and other questions.
In the interests of maximizing fun, I will allow the alethiometer to answer questions about anything, even though in-universe it only knows about things in Alethia.
