This is wonderfully flattering! Thank you! And while I certainly enjoy being on top, I will readily admit there are more than a few lines posted here that I am in awe of.

That would actually make it worse, since it would mean its payback for the little prank with my stained soul, and I was proud of that one.

Does anyone have a couple of spare Skulls I could nab?

If you mean Eyeless Skulls, there's a thread for that. You can only get it from someone for your first Skull, though, not one of the five you need later.

So I came back after a long break, when I last played the skies were near empty and Terror climbed faster than my boy trying to get to something he shouldn't get.

The addition of the carry-over lineage was a welcome addition; having never played Sea's I wasn't aware it would be a feature. While I do agree there are areas that could be adjusted to make the New Game + mode of play a bit more challenging, I have to disagree with resetting the map and locomotive. I say this somewhat contrarily because I have to also acknowledge that I agree it does remove a big point of fun and challenge in the game, that of exploring, but I would rather they be kept for the simple reason of it being a lineage/inheritance.

If I was leaving something behind to my child, or apprentice, protege, or anything else, leaving them a map of the stars and my locomotive would be at the top of the list. Since the skies, presumably, don't drastically change between one generation of character to the next, the record of ports especially would be a logical thing to leave.

I guess you could reset the grey cover and leave the ports in the same place, leaving it up to players' remembering where ports were and hoping for the best as they go off into the black?

A Bandaged Professor has some important (and unwise) things to ask to a Starveling Cat, and politely asks whether someone could spare one to fulfill his needs.

Don't forget that strong-backed labour can also be converted to supplies if you happen to come by it, say, at Wilmot's End after visiting the Nadir.

Also worth mentioning is Jenny's Finishing School.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I really don't see what's so significant about the blank spire. The Bazaar is collecting love stories, and inscribing them on its skin using correspondence (this is known for a fact). It stands to reason that it would have blank spaces on its skin, otherwise it wouldn't be able to collect any more stories (not without overwriting older ones, which seems to defeat the purpose). Unless it just throws any new stories at anywhere at random, it doesn't seem surprising that it would simply not have gotten around to filling that particular spire yet.

Ouch, that one is really painful since there's no way to ever rectify it, even with Fate. I guess you could rationalize that the devils swindled you into a rushed deal?

There is no unterzee as such in Fallen London; the zubmarine unlocks a few actions, such as diving underwater to avoid the Killing Wind card (and another similar one on one of the cards that appear with Lashing Waves) but no substantial content.
For the Labyrinth, I'm assuming it's for the Plated Seal - in which case you can hunt it with any vessel. It'll dive out of the water for you (and as a matter of fact I'm not aware of the zub having any special text for it, so you still hunt it from the surface if even you have one).

EDIT: On second thought, my first sentence may not be entirely technically correct; there's an entire branch of destinies that take place deep underwater, and there may or may not be some ES that might have involved going underzee. But what I meant was that you can't just take your zub and go zailing underwater.

I imagine I'll be disappointed but is there a way to access the Unterzee without owning the zubmarine? I'd rather not give up my pleasure boat but the Labyrinth of Tigers seems to need a trip under"water".

Since the forgotten quarter got an update, I wish to ask what some good ways of getting some dock favors are. I plan to use them for the 40 expedition for profit.

Saint Cyriac, of Saint Cyriac's Illuminated College, corresponds to no surface saint that I know of.


There are 27 of them. All Cyriacs, many of them martyrs. There are churches named for him in Lacock (Wiltshire) and Swaffham Priory (Cambridgeshire; I'm familiar with this one from having a family member at Cambridge University). The most prominent was martyred in 303 under Diocletian. You can invoke him against eye diseases and diabolical possession, the latter probably useful in the Neath?

One RC site sadly lists the emperor as Diocletion, but this one seems more serious:
