Ok, decided on a voyage to Polythreme. Why? I was hearing voices ........... clay ones of course.

Anyway, hadn't done my homework on prerequisites, etc. After arriving it wasn't long before I realised that a 3 card deck and poor attribute stats were going to make it a near impossible task.

So, I'm off back to London. I'll return when I'm better prepared for the challenge. Oh, but wait, 80 pieces of silk you say? Herein lays the dilemma. I've stolen a good few batches of silk but now I'm just getting consecutive fails.

Can anyone please tell me where in Polythreme you can attain silk?

Thanks

I gave the relics to His Amused Lordship, but now I'm not sure I did the right thing. I'm very much Team Anti-Spider, but those cultists exist. They're citizens of our society, and she basically wanted to advance the lot of them and their masters by embracing their heritage. I like that she was opposed to giving up both eyes. Maybe the Motherlings had a more progressive relationship with their khanate followers than the spider councils of the modern age.

Awwww poor 7 Day Reign. Despite my whining when it came out, I actually thought that story was awesome. Lots of fun and a great villain. Only the ending ruined it for me.

If you are not aware of this piece of lore, check it out: it will make the upcoming ES much better.


Also, the b---ard demands all your recurring dreams as a price for proceeding in the Hearts Desire ambition. Lost a whole year of What The Thunder Said that way.

I'm intrigued by the prospect of a whole Season focusing on the Fallen Cities, and I liked this story a lot.

The fight scene was very enjoyable, especially since you could forgo any real fighting: after all my character Eva May Canning's abilities lie elsewhere, so I picked only the shadowy options with pitfalls and tripwires and whatnot. Watching the Envoy blundering through them was fun wink

I will definitely play this one again on my other, more martial-arts-competent character Lady Orosenn, to experience the story in a different light - which is something I rarely do!

Also, I hope there'll be a Spider-Senate in Sunless Skies! Big Grin

And a quick look online confirms that Covent Garden (the building) is a glass-roofed building used as a market in Victorian times. Thanks for the solution!

fair enough although for the life of me i cant remember what i got item wise from the clay arm/the sun the sea and the devil i wonder if the final choice in the clay arm will affect the epilogue.

Loved this story, mostly for the reasons already stated.

It's also worth mentioning how wonderful the amount of choices for the fight was. I expected to get a single storylet or 2 options total, not a chain of events during which I could freely alternate between honourable melee and underhanded trappings.

It was a pleasant surprise.

Thanks for the tip.

I enjoyed the story and like many of you here genuinely had to pause at the decisions. I'm annoyed at myself for my loyalty to an Amused Lordship and merely adding a meagre collection of trinkets to his collection but...I would very much like to progress the Dilmun Club storyline and read that it will be part of the new update so didn't want to harm my chances to progress.

I split with the envoy because I love the lore of the Khanate and its depiction in Sunless Seas. Really evocative imagery.

I wanted to side with the seamstress because I like mysterious cults but I don't like spiders and have too many spider council corpses to my name to make that a safe alliance.

It bothers me greatly that I immediately looked for Seven Day Reigns even after I read the title. Time sure flies by.

Feducci is a spy, but do we actually know who he's working for? I mean actually know? Because one of the defining features of the Great Game is that all the various spy agencies and intelligence operations kind of blend together after a while.

You're likely right about Grace being a probably candidate. Lettice is a boon Companion of a number of players (including my main), and if Grace runs it would be dead (no pun intended) easy to give players who have Lettice as a Companion a special advantage on an Opportunity card.

I supported the Seamstress mostly because I wanted to know what a proper spider cult looks like.

...I don't know what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't a possible backstory to Ungoliant.
