Damn, 14/15. Shame we can't save them. Hopefully the Sceptre will be up next time. Is there any way to view your submitted answers for comparisons' sake?
Also. Would one recommend obtaining Judgements Egg or the Fragment?

According to the Oneiric Key, if a mirror misses a small fragment of glass, then they might not work.

Sunlight might work too, and simply covering a mirror at least stops its inhabitants from seeing through, or possessing.

My current LOCATION is a coincidence. My scrapbook displays a quality from the Discernment Exceptional Story. There were several uncapped qualities in that story, so I spent some time increasing them beyond the point of usefulness to check for Easter Eggs. There weren't any, but the "Taking a View on Abstraction" quality persisted after the story was complete, so at least I have an odd trophy.

Is your Scrapbook is related to Clay and A PLACE WHERE THERE IS VERY LITTLE SCREAMING?
Heard of this, but never had the time to look more into it.
No ... I'm pretty sure. I didn't explore every option when I had the chance, but I'm pretty sure it isn't.

Currently, I'm being boring and standard going for Poet-Laureate. It's probably my favorite grind because I personally find the text for each work of art to be very satisfying, and it gives good rewards for rebuilding my stock of basic currencies after my first Overgoat. My Notability has already returned to 8 and I haven't even been intentionally trying to grind it.

The cleaver comes down with a massive splatter of blood. Emma watches in morbid fascination as the fish-monger (if one could call what he sells 'fish') begins gutting and cleaning the gargantuan sea creature before him. Drake, meanwhile, looks away in disgust, and tries to stop himself from being sick.

"Emma, must we watch this gruesome display?" Drake asks, covering his eyes. Emma nods enthusiastically.

"You never see things like this in London these days! Such skill, such grace! A true artisan going about his trade!" Emma declares. Her exhortations gain the attention of the fish-monger.

"Ah ye, I've bee' at dis some forty yers nae. I'm gled such yeng folk take innerest in the fisherly ar's," The monger remarks through green teeth.

"Emma, this man is not an 'artisan!' He is a butcher! Let's go visit the bone-carvers, those are the real-" Drake begins, but is cut off as a writhing sea creature connects with his face.

"Ye will nae speak aboot my work dat way!" The monger shouts, clambering over the top of his stall. Before Emma can react, Drake has broken into a sprint, knocking over various passersby in the marketplace, moving in the direction of the docks and the Inexplicable.

----------

Elsewhere, Jimmy Mariner places the last of his echoes into the palm of a guard.

"Now, I just need ya to detain Mr. Dynamo, not anything crazy, ya hear? Only 'till his boat's gone," Mariner explains. The gruff and imposing figure merely nods, stuffing the echoes into a coin purse, before marching off towards the docks.

"This better work Mariner, or the boss'll have your head, and that won't be good for either of us," the ghost of Mister Mauvais whispers into Jimmy's ear. The former pirate ignores his constant companion, and heads for the market.

----------

Drake is within sight of the docks when he bumps into a towering armored man.

"I'm so sorry sir but really you must help me there's a madman after me!" Drake gasps out. The armored man turns and looks Drake up and down.

"Dynamo?" The man rumbles. Drake raises an eyebrow.

"Why yes, I am, have you read my books, I didn't realize I had fans-" Drake starts, before the armored punches him in the face.

"Detained. Coming with me," The armored man says, grabbing Drake by the shoulder and pulling him along, oblivious to Drake's protestations.

-----------

Jimmy Mariner is stepping into the streets of the Chelonate's marketplace when he comes face to face with an angry, cleaver-wielding man with a distinct lack of teeth.

"Get oot of ma way, city slicker!" the cleaver-wielding man shouts.

"Who ya callin' city slicker, ya guttersnipe?" Mariner snarls back.

"Ooh, I've 'ad it wit ya tourists!"

Mariner draws a cutlass from his belt.

"D__n Chelonites."

----------

The guard frogmarches Drake towards the center of the Chelonate, where he is bound to be imprisoned.

"Please, can we find my sister, she'll explain this all? Emma!" Drake calls out, and is shushed by the guard.

Before they can get too far, shouts ring about the streets. A heavily scarred man runs past, announcing that a rumble has erupted in the vicinity of the market stalls. The guard looks at Drake, then in the direction of the market, and back to Drake again, before sighing and rushing off in the direction of the shouting.

Drake takes the opportunity to sprint back to the docks, where he finds Emma waiting for him.

"Drake, you must be more careful with how you conduct yourself in these foreign ports! I'm not always going to be around to protect you," Emma says upon seeing him, giving him a big hug. Drake nods wearily.

"I think I'll just retire to the ship now."

---------

Later, Jimmy Mariner sits in a damp cell across from the fish-monger, the guard he had earlier paid stands watching them through the bars.

"Look at the mess you've gotten us into now, you nitwit!" the ghost of Mister Mauvais admonishes.

Things have not gone as planned.

Right now I'm just on the grind for my first overgoat and maxing out my stats. But after that I - as a revolutionary and supporter of Hell - plan on getting "Changed by the Iron Republic" to some absurd value. Have yet to decide if 77 is absurd or not and if I should simply not have fun with the game for months and go for 666 (or it's more popular and coveted cousin 777) instead.

    I'm partial to the theory that says that both Mr Hearts and a Wings-of-Thunder bat are in the barn, though probably not simultaneously. When a new creature exits the barn, the bat is in residence; when a hole-in-the-sky shape flies away, Mr Hearts is present.

    Oh. Well, my experience now is that custom images are broken *everywhere except* the quality change area, and I've given specific examples. I still need to get custom images working in the sidebar, in particular. You say they should work, but they're not. What else can I try?

    I got a question about one of the mysteries that just passed. The ''What does the Bishop of Bulwark keep in his barn?''. For all I know it's a wings-of-thunder bat because you just breed other animals with it, but what the heck is up with the ''Mr. Hearts'' one? He keeps Mr. Hearts in his barn? I mean at one point one would consider that Mr. Hearts is the bat hiding in that cage, so that would make him quite a kinky master, wouldn't it? But either way when also considering the Vake story which also at one point describes what the Vake's skin is like (if I didn't totally mix up some details, but in that one very dark cave that's beneath the neath one has a fight) , and unless that was just some kind of disguise, then one would really consider the masters to be bats...wouldn't that be fun? I'm still very much open though to hear the truth about why one of the Masters is a viable answer!
    The wings-of-thunder bat is a misdirection on both a lore and meta level. Prior to The Rat Catcher, we had no idea whether the wings-of-thunder bat was even real, but even then, its description did not match that of the creature in the barn. The wings-of-thunder bat flies loudly, whereas the creature in the barn is silent, and it is dark as night - matching the description of a Master - rather than a discrete, loud bat.

    There is not a literal breeding occurring in the barn but rather the Red Science or some similar means of transformation. Note that it is Mr. Hearts who gives away the Empyrean Redolence needed to create even more complex creatures, and it remarks that it tires of hyenas. Mr. Hearts has stated that it has children by continuity through conjoining disparate flesh, a reference to its role in the Labyrinth of Tigers.

    Mr. Hearts is not kept in the barn at all times.

    Both can also be gotten through Fate-Locked stories - for the Fragment, it's a couple of ESes, while the Egg can apparently be gotten from Empress's Shadow (among other places) which is cheaper (and considered an excellent story for many other reasons).

    Additionally, Fragments tend to actually give a fragment of some contingency procedure from higher up on the Chain when you get them (with one exception I believe), so the echo of the action is itself valuable.
