I've always assumed that Fortigan in general was some kind of reference to Vortigern, the 5th century British warlord? But I have no idea what the spelling difference might mean...

Well, in Old Seeking, you had to go back and /forth-again/ to Winking Isle.


Not what I'm talking about.

So, my report in the name of Seeking science: you can't get Gawain out of order. I went all the way South, set my Question, etc, but when I got to the chapel, there was no option to attend the last service in the name of St. Gawain. So I assume you need Fortigan's to get Gawain's candle.



Just checked the wiki and Gawain's service at the Chapel does need Fortigan, just like every other service needs the candle for the one before. So all is working as intended.

That's the name origin, yeah. But what does it actually MEAN??? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Kind of a half answer - I think there a few other posts pondering the significance of Vortigern from back in the day - but...
This thread references this tweet with regards to the Fortigan/Forthigan spelling. I can't find at the moment what I'm looking for (if it exists), but I seem to remember one reason for the naming besides theme/motif in Seeking was to be punny. The drawn in/thrown out thing works with it as well on the dad-joke level. I mean, there's probably a much bigger connection - I can't remember all my lore from sources right now - but then again other lore things have been much, much simpler than appearances would leave one to believe.

Fledgling seeker here (SMEN 2 only). I've noticed something that seems odd: my UP keeps rising on its own. I had it at 2, then drew the TWO OF BATS and picked the non-committal option. This lowered my UP to 1...but then after Time the Healer dropped by, UP was back at 2. This has happened at least twice now. Is this normal? I've heard that TWO OF BATS isn't a particularly good card to raise SMEN, so I'd rather not have to deal with it any more than necessary.

I...feel embarrassed that I did not know that. Thank you for rectifying my misguided notion!

Alodia has gone NORTH and chose to grieve. I would love to learn about the Salt and Hate endings.

While we're on that topic, can someone send me the Hate ending? I never saw that one.
