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
Persuasive 81

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.

EDIT: ahtog has generously offered Legendary Charisma patronage, thank you!

*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........

Watchful: 64
Shadowy: 98

Persuasive: 79

My riddles have been stolen from me... This is a part of my past I never speak of.. perhaps I can find Aigul...

Greetings fellows.

Having reached something of an impasse in my investigations into a significant passing, of which I will speak no more, I seek the assistance of an Invisible Eminence to further the development of my skills in areas which may be of some assistance to my quest.

Watchful: 39
Shadowy: 31
Dangerous: 40
Persuasive: 41

    To all my delicious friends,


    I am here in the Neath as practitioner of veterinary medicine, and it is my hope to find the secret of immortality here present and bring it to the surface to ameliorate the fortunes of the animals with whom I spent so much of my time above-ground. Unfortunately, my progress in this respect has been haltingly slow, and it is my hope that you might bestow upon me some of your tremendous knowledge so as to hasten my progress. I am also an Exceptional Friend and am more than willing to engage in any number of social dalliances with you if you find that would be of any benefit to you.


    Right now I would benefit most greatly from the generosity of a Shattering Force, an Invisible Eminence, or an Extraordinary Mind, but Legendary Charismas are most welcome as well.

    Dear fellow Londoners:
    My lady thief Eudoxia Belwether is currently somewhat lacking in Watchful and Shadowy. Any Invisible Eminences or Extraordinary Minds would be much appreciated.

    Watchful: 90
    Shadowy: 92
    Dangerous: 105
    Persuasive: 125

    I am a PoSI, but I'd like to be more Shadowy for RP reasons, and I ended up with my Persuasive from grinding at Court.
    Also, if any of you have Patronage to spare, my alt vindicta is new to the Neath and created with the purpose of Ambition: Nemesis. (W77, S51, D64, P63).

    Dear delicious friends,

    A daring and ruthless lady, Vittoria Scarlett (W67, S70, D77, P64), has requested that I seek on her behalf a Dangerous or Watchful Patron (should one happen to be both, that would be most ideal!). With milady's goal of exerting an indomitable influence on the darker parts of the Neath, be it the Criminals, Docks or Hell itself, a Patron of the most devilish kind would be essential to this... partnership.

    We hope to hear from you shortly, Patron.

    Yours truly,
    The Black
    Sacrament


    *edit: milady's contract has been sealed with the blood of Extraordinary Mind Leszek Nx.

    To whom it may concern,

    Please find enclosed my business card. As I believe our mutual friend may have informed you, I am interested in making the acquaintance of an individual versed in the more forthright arts. One who possess such an affinity for shattering force would find a arrangement of patronage with yours truly could be of much use to their interests in our fair capital.

    Your faithfully,

    Riuri (W111, S49, D69, P58)

    Hello, others.

    I'm The Solitary Scoundrel (an unfortunate handle, I know.) My stats are W69, S85, D11, P67. I'm looking for a patron, specifically an Extraordinary Mind. I consider myself passably clever and I enjoy clever things, such as this riddle about measuring time by burning ropes which you may have heard before:

    You have two ropes, each of which will burn from one end to the other in 30 minutes. However, the rate of burning along a rope is not constant or known; for example, it's possible for half of a rope to burn in 29 minutes, while the other half burns down in 1 minute. You also have a magical lighter which has the property of entrancing butterflies with its flame. (This magical property is irrelevant.)
    The question is this: how do you measure 45 minutes with reasonable precision using only the two ropes and the lighter?

    I enjoy reading books, fencing epee, and playing games of all types (board games, card games, video games, pen-and-paper games, etc.) I like cats, high places, pretty things (and people), stories involving vast towers, stories involving castles or lands in the sky, and stories involving underground worlds. Speaking of underground worlds, I apologize for all of the colons and parentheses; I read a bit of Alice in Wonderland a few days ago and a little bit of Carrol's writing style rubbed off on me.

    A thousand thanks,
    The Solitary Scoundrel
    http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/The%20Solitary%20Scoundrel

    Update: I have found a Persuasive patron, and am in the process of accepting an offer from a Shadowy one. Therefore, I have updated the post to ask only for Extraordinary Minds, and prospective patrons should probably know I may not have all of my free evenings available.

    Hello, future patron or not-so-future-patron. Let me get the starter information out of the way. My primary stats are watchful and persuasive, but I need definite work on my shadowy and dangerous, due to my aspirations of SMEN. I just need a boost with those stats until I get them to a high enough level, after which I will begin the Mr. Eaten storyline in the forgotten quarter. Of course, I only plan to do this so that I may know the answer. Nobody seems to want to tell me the ending, so it seems I have no choice but to destroy myself utterly. In the meantime, I will provide an excellent protégé.
    Best of regards,
