They're dying. Give it a bit of time and I'm sure it'll earn the name.

I just had a sudden thought, sorry if it has come up before. Why is the game called Sunless Skies? Sunless Sea makes sense, there isn't a sun down there (well, there's a sort of artificial one, and a hole in the roof in one place letting the sunlight in, but other than that...).

But surely, the High Wilderness... There are plenty of suns up there, right? They've got them coming out of their ears. It isn't in any sense "sunless."

Thank you gentle being. Your kitten found a spacious yet warm home with me and is prospering very well. I'll make sure to take great care of it.

A letter about a dream about a tropical vacation

On the beaches of Numico, a letter lays unopened, unsigned and unaddressed. The contents, if one were to open and read it, is as follows.

Help! I think I just turned down a life of luxury in a sun-lit tropical paradise!

I think it was a dream. Not sure. In any rate, just looking at the islands I could go to cost me 35 echoes, and since I had already paid I was told that I could leave at any time. I was given two main recommendations for destinations to go to and one minor destination. I tried writing down everything I was told, then looking off of that I tried writing down the destinations I was told to.

I backed away for a moment. I was told that looking at the offer was still up but it would cost me an additional 35 echoes because I looked away. I only had 145 echoes, so constantly looking away would get very expensive.

I could become a completely different person. Do I want to? I am uncertain.

It was probably all a dream. Hopefully. Maybe. In any rate, all of my worldly possessions are still with me, echoes included. And I can not seem to find the sheet of paper I supposedly wrote on.

Good Evening,
My name is Jane... but most everyone who knows me, knows me as Shiner. I'm always available to help a friend in need. I enjoy quiet readings and chess rivalries. If you were to peruse my bookshelf... you would find proscribed poetry, cutting edge anatomies, and that the Book of Ruth has been removed from a much-used Bible.

I am receiving calling cards for new and interesting Acquaintances.

Hullo!

Silas Hollow is a confused artist trying to find his way in the Neath, putting his last hopes of lasting happiness in a mysterious card game he's heard only rumors of. He's just started wandering the Flit, and is in need of someone showing him the ropes.

Watchful: 60
Shadowy: 48
Dangerous: 50
Persuasive: 63

I'm looking for a patron to help improve my Shadowy.

I like this. It's a much better headcanon than what I was working with. I'll be over in Veilgarden trying to redeem the Heiress and the Jewel-Thief.

  • Another possible take: at its heart, seduction is about gaining trust and intimacy. The text certainly points in one somewhat *downwards* direction regarding the particulars of that intimacy, but if you're willing to handwave away certain bits you could regard it as some other kind - for instance, the intimacy of the confessional for the newly-converted.

    (Co-written with Barselaar and John Moose)

    Jordan slowly trudges along the muddy path following the Scorched Sailor’s lead. Even with Bart carrying the bag, the road is still hard on her feet. Maybe she should have worn more comfortable shoes. Her guide suddenly stops. “This should be the place, Jordan.”

    Jordan squints. There’s nothing in sight except a small mound covered in fungi. “Are you sure, Bart? Randy wrote he’s in a safehouse. This doesn’t look like a house. And it doesn’t look very safe.”

    The Scorched Sailor nods solemnly. “Aye, I’m sure. That, or your map’s wrong.”
    Jordan makes an embarrassed smile. She wonders if maybe she hasn’t drawn the bat’s directions correctly. Well, she should have gotten most of them right. She thinks. “That… that could be.”

    As they look towards the mound, they notice something small approaching from its direction. The shape turns out to be a black cat, walking from left to right, sometimes back towards the mound, but slowly making its way toward the travellers. As it gets close, it sits down and takes turns between looking at the pair with an expression of mild interest and washing itself. Before the two say anything, however, it breaks the silence by asking “Hey big guy, what’s your name?”

    Rather taken aback by the cat’s forwardness, the Scorched Sailor simply answers. “Captain,” he adds as an afterthought. “Helpin’ the girl with a delivery.” He hefts the bag with his new hand, and the sack clanks and crashes in an alarming manner.

    “Well then you’d better follow me, hadn’t you. Don’t step where I haven’t or you’ll blow up, see if you don’t.” The cat starts making its way back to the mound, in the same winding pattern as before, with Jordan and the Sailor following it as best as they can. Following his advice is made slightly difficult due to his paws being the size of the Sailor’s big toes, but in the end they manage not to explode.

    Jordan looks up to Bart with an unexpressed question in her eyes. What’s going on here? She’s supposed to meet Randy, but the cat let them in without her even telling his name. Does he know Randy, too? The Scorched Sailor shakes his head. That is a question that is better left for later.

    As they arrive, they see the mound is actually a very old and dilapidated shack. A young man with messy dark hair, a white wooden cane and oversized clothes stands at the doorway. “Captain Barselaar? That is you? ...I am glad to find you alive. How is the wound? Did you receive care? We have your arm, but I doubt attaching is even remotely possible anymore...” Noah gulps visibly, looking uneasy. The two notice the blurry texture of his eyes, and that he isn’t looking at them, but somewhere next to their feet without turning his gaze at all. “I… Thank you. Sir, without you, I doubt I would be alive today. I promise I will do all I can to help you, and… Well, if you ever need a favour, I believe I owe you rather many.” An uneasy smile flashes on Noah’s lips, but his eyes remain unfocused. Instead, he seems to be turning his left ear towards the Sailor and Jordan.

    The Scorched Sailor grunts. ”Yeah, ‘m alive. Arm hurt like the Cantigaster had at it.” He fights the urge to snap at Noah - fat lotta help you were - but the man has clearly sustained his own injuries, ones perhaps irreparable. “Thanks, but don’t need favours. Need to be not dyin’.” He looks around the dilapidated exterior. “This where you all holed up?”

    “Yes, Gideon had a hideout handy. I’ll show you in, the rest are recovering downstairs. Do be careful, mind, I think the place has more boobytraps than the Masters’ towers. The cat is a good guide, though.”

    Jordan has listened to the two men without really understanding much. They were in a fight together, maybe? In any other moment she would be glad to know more, but she has a big problem right now. She tugs the blind man’s sleeve. “Sorry, sir. Do you know Randy, maybe?”

    Noah bends towards Jordan and smiles. “We might, miss. There’s rather many people here, actually. Could you describe Randy to me?”

    “Like, how does he look like?” Jordan’s expression becomes thoughtful. She raises a hand above her head, roughly at the level of the Scorched Sailor’s shoulder. “He’s this tall, more or less. He has brown hair, but he usually wears a cap, so I don’t know if that helps. Oh, yes. He’s, like, suuuupeeeer grumpy all the time, and he doesn’t like to talk to people much. And he has a sword!” Jordan smiles, quite proud of her thorough description.

    Noah turns in the general direction of the Sailor. “What do you think? Lyndon, maybe? Or Henchard…?”

    The Sailor shakes his head in disbelief. Madmen in the street preach about how accidents don’t exist, how chance is another name for inevitability, and right now he’s inclined to agree. He wonders whether fate is after his death or whether he has a more productive part to play this time. “Noah’s right, it must be one of them. I expect your Randy is inside, lass. Looks like we were both headed the same way after all.”

    I thought I'd be saving my gear to. I thought I'd be saving a bunch of stuff. But the closer I got the more I just wanted it to be over. I actually lit 2 Rats of Glory in the home stretch, despite the risk to my 4 Seeking Candles, just to get there a couple days early.

    Pretty much. There might have been more efficient approaches but it's easy to sink a lot of actions into those very quickly.

    I'm pretty sure the Soul Trade is the most efficient (non-card) method available. It's somewhere near 1.8 EPA.
