What is unfamiliar is a smaller orb floating in front of it. One that none of you have ever seen:

“A small moon has appeared in orbit around The Well. I will repeat that to let it sink in, a moon has… appeared. On-world researchers from the illustrious Nalanda Free University are unsure of it’s origins and have made only preliminary investigations into its nature. The Chancellor has made an open call for people to come and investigate both the moon itself and the mysterious entity that sent the following message to the Deans of each of the colleges earlier this week:

I am Tenjin. I am the Index. I serve your colleges as a guide to things discovered and documented. Come browse my stacks. I will guarantee your safety as I am a servant of the University. Ask for Guidance, and You Shall Find the Way.

Preliminary investigations show no signs of risk, and the University will be hosting a reception for all interested parties.”

III. Setting

Tenjin

Sector V is the site of a strange occurrence. A Moon appeared in orbit around The Well, a planet which is dominated by Nalanda Free University. The University has done a preliminary search of the moon, which appears to be the home of an AI which calls itself Tenjin. The moon is a large library-like structure which Tenjin refers to as the index. Preliminary journeys have secured a dining hall and several rooms which the University is using to host a reception.

IV. Theme
Academic Study, and Exploration
Tenjin is a largely unexplored mystery. The Well is inviting people from across the Sectors to come to a reception which will begin the exploration endeavors into the moon itself.

V. Mood
Curiosity and Learning
The reception on Tenjin is an overtly curious event, but it is also an occasion to mingle with the leadership of both the Sector and also The Well. People from around the sector will gather to ask questions, of Tenjin and of each other.
