Fellow Scholars to Correspond With Messages in this topic - RSS

I'm about back in port, and I think Mr. Drake steamed in just ahead of me. Did you get all the notes you needed? Or should I keep your name in mind when I make my next trip to Polythreme?

This has been a profitable Zee voyage for me in many ways. However, I have learned a lesson in bats: for a serious chiropteroepistolic academic, fifty bat is not enough.

[Note, for readers new to bat correspondence: It takes 10 bats to send out notes to a fellow scholar. Only a variable portion of bats will return to you, and those only when the person you've sent to accepts your offer. As a safe estimate, I would guess you send about 3 times with 20 bats. This is probably enough if you're just making a quick trip to Bullbone Island. If you're steaming all over the Southern Archipelago, I suggest 50. If you intend to make longer journeys, and especially if you're bouncing from port to port like a Zee-monster infested game of pinball, I might bring along 100 (which is what I'm intending to do myself from now on.) This is, of course, assuming that you want to make the maximum number of exchanges. Dabblers can get away with 20 bats or fewer, and for those just aiming for a certain quantity of notes, calculate at 10 notes per type per exchange (or, based on my estimate above, 30 notes per type for 20 bats).]

A Thanks to the people who sent me invites! I have enough notes now, and will be using them, so sadly I will not be available for any more corresponding.

Congratulations! It looks like we were writing at the same time... smile

I must have done, Mr. Kan. I have now completed my Bifurcated Owl - not so much because I wanted one as because I could. Of course, now I have to go back and recreate all my beasts from the Labyrinth of Tigers! I don't mind the hazardous Zee-voyage to get the Plated Seal, but I'm not looking forward to getting exiled to the Tomb-Colonies again.

I think I got 5 exchanges out of 40 bats, with 6 left over when I made landfall.

My last voyage (to Grunting Fen, Polythreme, Grunting Fen again, and home) I got 8 or 9 exchanges out of 50 bats, with 8 left over. I had to pass up several opportunities for lack of bats. However, I also had one correspondent who did not accept the exchange; had he done so, I probably could have gotten another exchange out of the deal.

Vunderbar! Unfortunately I am at this moment one (1) page short of being able to correspond properly, but a quick jaunt will fix that and I shall be available once again.

I know this has come up before, and I haven't seen anyone give an answer. Therefore, in case you were wondering: Yes, you can receive and accept correspondence requests outside London and the Zee. I've received and accepted bat-mail in Polythreme today.

I've managed to get four exchanges out of 25 bats (I was pretty lucky with the number that returned to me). Sorry about spamming you with requests, Mr Kan!

An excellent return for twenty-five bats! You were lucky indeed! And I always welcome correspondence from scholars of your caliber; no need at all to apologize. Once I finish my business in Polythreme, I will no doubt send you some bat-dispatches of my own.

23 will be setting out later today for Mutton Island, and bringing with her a good 50 bats for corresponding. So a few of you may be inundated with messages shortly.

I've recently set out from London with 100 bats, and I'm seeing how many I can corospond with before I run out (or if I get bored with zailing and return home.)

I've always a colony of bats on me at all times and would love to exchange research with whomever. Not currently at zee, but I'm pining to leave shore soon and will gladly return the favor when I do.

I'm happy to correspond with fellow scholars! My name in Fallen London is the same as on these forums, and my home page can be found below. I haven't been to zee in a while, but I'm sure that there's discovery - and profit - to be made. Perhaps I should take the old clipper out for a spin!

I'm open to all non-menacing social actions. I particularly enjoy a good mystery. I'm also a Corespondent who can teach at your Orphanage.
