[Day 22, Early Morning] Seven Riddles (Mantis)

The Mantis loyal to the Emperor occupy the southwest tower of the castle, just beyond the final gate. It overlooks the snowed-in mountain pass. Left upon a pillow in the common room is a single koku. Its markings indicate it was minted by the Mantis Clan and stamped with the year 1133.

[Day 22, Early Morning] Seven Riddles (Mantis)

The monk who passes by is burdened by what appears to be a basket full of stones. Out of the stones, he pulls a letter, places it gently upon the doorstep, and is on his way.

Oi, who's this strange bald bloke, pawing through the Mantis post as if he's actually interested in these riddles?

The merchant placed the coins in the monk's hand, and to his delight, the man only smiled and handed out more.

Dogo was sitting on the high seat of meditation when a monk came and asked, "What is the greatest depth of the teaching?" Dogo came down from the seat, kneeled on the floor, and said to the monk, "You are here after traveling far, but I am sorry to have nothing to offer you."

The bald man takes the letter and sits down to consider its meaning. He may be drumming his fingers, but he's giving this 'contemplation' lark a fair try.
