A very good day to all sirs, and madams, and otherwise.

I'll not waste your time with a long tale. My reason for writing is this: my father -- a sincerely respectable man -- is a sea-- sorry, zee-captain of many years, but, to this day, has told me sadly little of London, and the Neath at large. And so, of course, I've found myself profoundly curious about it.

Recently, I decided to act on this interest of mine. Freshly arrived (fresh off the boat, in fact), it is my intention to find lodgings here in London and then surprise my father at the docks when he next arrives at port. As I am fully aware he will be furious (Furious! Absolutely livid. Such fun already), I believe it would be in my best interest to make some commitments -- a few not-to-be-missed engagements -- lest he be tempted to escort me back to the Canal himself.

With that in mind, I would greatly appreciate any opportunity to accompany, and take note of, a long-time resident of character. If nothing else I am a quick study, and -- if I do say so myself -- make a very fine cup of tea.


Yours faithfully,
Harriet Sorrows


EDIT: Excellent news! The knowledgeable Mr. Hebediah Fix, has taken me under his wing.

Oh, come to think of it -- I should also throw in a word for my new friend Miss Chandler, shouldn't I? They had arranged for someone to look after her, she tells me, but... well. She doesn't like to impose, you see. Kind woman. Very considerate. Unfailingly polite. I'm not quite sure how she is at tea, but she can, ah... she can knit! Oh yes indeed. She's very talented. Such a fine protégé would be of interest to anyone.

But, for the sake of... that is, to make such a surely fortuitous arrangement even more of a pleasure for all involved, I recommend she be considered by those of a reserved nature. A member of the clergy or one of its associates would be wonderful. Perhaps a historian would do? No -- terrible idea. Forget that one.

Just-- Look, no 'frequenters' of any 'hives of sin'. Please. Before you consider contacting her, I would ask that you use the broadest definition of that phrase you can possibly imagine.

And do not mention my name.

With that only a Protege can approach the patron as it stands at this time, I'll put myself out as a Legendary Charisma potential patron.

To whom it may concern:

Good day. I'm a recent arrival to this quaint place we call the "Neath", yet my few weeks here have been... quite unusual, to say the least. I've tasted undescriptable delights and faced a most horrible monster, embarked on dangerous expeditions and met all sorts of people. I'll be honest, I even have been to prison twice, once unjustly, and once on my own accord. I've seen death, both true and the Neathly variant.

But then again, haven't we all? I'm sure many have travelled the same path. To put it this way, I've been... interested in this "fake death" I've mentioned. A most curious event, that leads to unexpected opportunities. Snuffers, zee-monsters, devils, tomb colonists... I want to see. Experiment. Make their blood run free, and see if they come back. So far, I have only seen three people die permanently by my own hand.

Regretfully, it is not enough. I want to see more. I've heard of those "Licenciates". Living shadows with a name on their list. I will become one. But first, I need to see. Truly see. There are secrets that one must learn. Yet my eye is not good enough for the task. I need a master. An extraordinary mind.

Rest assured, I am a good student, and I will not forget my debts.

Best regards,
Asher Reagan

Good Day to All,

I am currently sloughing through the Neath bemourning the loss of my previous Patron who went to the Devils.

My unaugmented stats are:
Shadowy 92
Watchful 94
Dangerous 54

I am looking to improve upon my Persuasive should any patron care to give me a hand.

Well, good morrow to each and every one of you!

Firstly, I should like to address the rumour that my leaving the Convent in Italy was due to my dalliance with a noted privateer. There is no truth to such, whatsoever! The dalliance was only the icing upon a particularly salty cake.
I was banished (by the pope himself, should you doubt my notability!) for selling church-lead from the roof to a Handsome Devil of my acquaintance, and from Italy as a cautionary tale for negotiating my virtue with flagrant abandon.

I've since been experiencing many of the pleasures denied to me by the church, and came to London following Feducci's election, and promises of boundless opportunity. If you are to know anything of me, know this; one day, I intend to be the richest and most scandalous of persons, above or below.

...Unfortunately, some ruffians appear to have followed me from Italy. Some advice on keeping a Watchful eye out for them would be much appreciated - or if I cannot find tutelage under Sinning Jenny, anyone else who might help me Persuade Mr. Apples to back me instead.

Persuasive: 6
Watchful: 5
Shadowy: 5
Dangerous: 5

"If you have me, you want to share me. But if you share me, you no longer have me. What am I?"

P.S. I had quite the affinity for parakeets, before selling them to the Foreign Office. Strange bunch, but most generous.

*Extraordinary Mind found, thank you.*

Ahem..

Hello fellow Londoners. I found myself in this city long ago. I even started getting accustomed to it. One could say I... developed a fondness for Spite. But I found something. I know not what. All I know is I danced with The Shadows... beautiful...fragrant...velvet...a strike of red...
But yes, it seems much has happened during my waltz. I wish to sharpen my knowledge of this, once again, for me, New London. *I can dance with them once again, I know I can*
I seek An Extraordinary Mind to help me develop my skills. If any of you would be so kind, I'd be honored to help you in any way. I have a fondness for cats as well, and chess, and bats, and shadows........

I am not posting for myself, as I'm a Shadowy Patron, but Nummehcake would like a Watchful mentor.
