Feng Shui is an ancient geomantic art that specializes in the proper and auspicious alignment of buildings, graves, and interiors, in accordance with heavenly emanations and earthly configurations, allowing the Chi to flow freely in order to harmonize individuals with their surrounding environment.

Overview

Feng Shui literally means Wind and Water and its practitioners are known as Fang Shih. Also known as "Chinese geomancy", some scientists believe that original Feng Shui orientated itself on magnetic lines and underground waterways, while most traditionalists insist on the presence of dragons and spirits in wind and earth that must be brought into harmony, creating spiritually potent places that appease the dragons that sleep beneath the earth.

While Feng Shui is practiced among the mortal population of China as well (although many were forced to flee the country after the Communists under Mao became the dominant power), the Kuei-jin, with their special insights into the flow of chi, have developed their own variant of it, also referred to as Tso Tao (the Black Way). It means not only the power to detect dragon lines and arrange areas to be in harmony with them, but the ability to cleanse areas of evil influences, disguise or alter ambient Chi, and even to interfere with a Kuei-jin's ability to draw ambient Chi from an area. By manipulating special talismans, the fang shih can direct energies to control and corrupt. Some Cathayans even make themselves available to mortals for employment as fang shih; they tend to command very high prices due to their skills.
