Hi, Hallowmas is near. I wanted to know if the old companions will be coming back? I missed some chances with the henchmen and the rats...

Should be, but for Fate.
But this year will be different and confessions will probably not cost 7 Nota. Who knows, maybe Nota gifting will be back!

I am currently trying to figure out how to advance in the Trade in Souls quest. I have a Shepherd of Souls 2 currently, and I am not sure where to move it forward.

Been a while since I did this storyline, but I believe you're looking for a fixed storylet in a location - possibly Ladybones Road or Spite. If it's not a fixed storylet, flip opportunity cards and it should appear very quickly.

Where the bugger did the Khanate get electrical lamps?

I assume they made them.

They were a pretty common thing by the 1890s, or at least they weren't any longer something to marvel at (there were cities in Africa with entirely electric-lit streets by the 1880s). I ponder more why the fact the Khanate has them is pointed out at all. Does that mean London doesn't have them, for some peculiar reason? That would be a bigger question to me.

I believe that's the implication, yes - emphasising that, for whatever reason, London has stagnated in the Neath, but the Khanate has thrived.

Does dying in Fallen London give me some kind of permanent consequence/menace quality of some sort? I heard that dying in-game will prevent my character from going up to the surface. Should a rare event like that happen to the future I want to be ready for it-but at the same time theres features locked behind dying (constable renown item & something about paramount presence needing some boatman quality)?

There's no known quality that tracks died. The Boatman's Opponent quality for playing chess with the Boatman is only attainable if you die, so it's a marker, but you can die and revive without any chess.

You can pick the Constable renown item in the boat, and The Boatman's opponent quality is one of the three possible routes for achieving Paramount Presence.
You can also grind a cider to be able to return to the surface in RP terms, but you are right, there seems to be no quality that tracks if you died or not.

There are a few lore bits that imply that simply being in the neath long enough prevents you from going back to the surface. Your character is stuck here until you get a cider (at least, if the sidebar snippits can be trusted and that actually works).

Since playing Flint I have had the "A ticket to Apis Meet" storylet in Wolfstack Docks. So it seems I can go back there if I want, but is there any point? Is there anything to actually do there?

Hoard Knob of Scintillack or Carved Ball of Stygian Ivory!!! Or read something that you may have missed. The lore there is pretty heavy and I'm left with multiple questions from finishing Flint and SMEN.

How do I raise Notability? The wiki says I can arrange to meet Slowkake in the Attend to Matters of Society card, but I don't see that option.

Your Lodgings -> Attend to Matters of Society! -> Use your influence to invite Slowcake's Amanuensis for a visit.

You need at least 1 Notability and enough Making Waves to move from your current Notability to the next level of Notability to play this option. If you lack either, the Amanuensis action will appear near the bottom of the action list. If you don't see it at all under Attend to Matters of Society! then send a bug report.

You can also wait for the Amanuensis card to show up in your deck, if you are a POSI it will show up eventually.

Does anyone know wether some server issues or something like that are around at the moment?

Is it possible to improve your St John's Lily past level 19? The cards stop appearing after level 18, so I figured that was more or less the cap, but my level 19 plant just lost a contest of blood.

It is not possible to improve one's lily beyond level 19, unless the fate-locked option enable that, which I doubt. And a lot of other players surely have level 19 lilies, making each contest a bit of a toss-up.
