Sorry to bring this post from the dead but for continuity, I decide to recycle this thread.

I've made the Ministry of Serendipity with the help of Boardromm and Curia. To follow-up on what we have already discuss. Feel free to give your impression:

They are serious for other people. Who says they are serious for themselves?

In any case some justification can be made for doing a study of Earth. Maybe they want to do some sort of magical dam of the Banestorm that needs to find where the leak from the other side is.
