REAL Geomancers

A Geomancer, not only is an awesome addition to any fantasy squadron - but is actually a real thing. Geomancy... or "Earth Divination" (pow!) is the process of interpreting naturally occurring patterns & markings in soil, rocks and pebbles - usually after tossing them, and making astrological predictions based on the shapes that are formed on the ground. It was apparently pretty popular throughout Europe and Africa during the Middle Ages & Renaissance.

Imagine being at a party, and someone asking: "what do you do for a living?" and you answering "I'm a fucken Geomancer, man." Fuck yeah.
