Seers Profession.

'Seers establish spheres of influence over which they can exact their enormous power, and through the might of the seeing stones, they are able to battle their enemies.'

'Seers are less effective, though, in face to face combat and often find themselves having to flee from the field of battle to influence the course of action from the safety of their fortified tower'
