EDIT: I've found a patron, but I'll leave this post up for future reference. Feel free to add me for fun and profit!

I have been getting to know the Neath for a little over a fortnight now, and while I do think I'm learning the ways of this place quickly enough, some guidance from a kind soul would not go amiss. More specifically, I seek the patronage of an Invisible Eminence, although the attentions of a Paramount Presence are, of course, entirely welcome – either way, assistance in matters of subtlety is my particular need. That being said, beggars can't be choosers, and any so inclined may freely send me their card.

I am well aware that unkind tongues have been known to describe me as something of a cad, but I would like to assure you that any beastly rumours you may have heard about my supposedly cavorting with devils, carrying on various scandalous romances and liaisons, and generally engaging in conduct quite unbecoming of a gentleman are all egregiously exaggerated, if not outright fabrications. Furthermore, you should not believe anyone seeking to impugn my character with scurrilous accusations of criminality – no such case has ever been proven, and it is only unconscionable wags and scoundrels spreading these slanders among polite society.

Should you choose to take me under your wing, I shall reward your kindness with fealty and friendship. Fidelity such as mine you shall else never find, and I shall endeavor mightily not to disappoint as a student. If nothing else, I have been known to be good company, even if I do not always keep it.

Base stats:
Watchful 62
Shadowy 55
Dangerous 68
Persuasive 74

Brothers, sisters, and siblings of mysterious and indistinct gender, I pray that the airs find you well this morning.

I seek a patron. I assure you of my absolute loyalty in this arrangement.

Clearly I am not far off 100. Shadowy is the hardest for me to raise but I am happy for patronage in any field.

I have accepted a patronage arrangement, thank you.

I remain yours, faithfully, Citizen Idumaean.

To those most Devious and Fearsome members of Neathly society:

Having lived in the Neath for two-some-odd years now, and being quite comfortable to surround myself with merely the Courtasans and Hangers-On that naturally attach themselves to one with Talents and Appetites as Significant as my own, I find myself desiring the company of one more my Equal, or even (dare I say it) my Superior.

While I admit that surpassing my Friends and Acquaintances in every sense was fulfilling for a time, I now realize that to grow and evolve I need to aquaint myself with those who will inspire me to self-improvement, rather than languid stagnation.

My talents are as follows:

W: 103
S: 84
D: 84
P: 112

As you may have gathered from this information, I would have the most to gain from a person of significant skill in the arts of Subterfuge and Force, the dialectical forces that rule the Rooftops and Rookeries of our fair Sunless City.

As for my riddle, it is as follows: Walk on the living, they don`t even mumble. Walk on the dead, they mutter and grumble. What are they?

Edit: I now have a shadowy patron.


I've been playing off and on for a few months now and am seeking a patron for my character. (Asher McMillen) He's seeking revenge for his dead loved one and is trying to become a Posi as the first step of traveling to the Iron republic. He also spends his time teaching at the university and going on expeditions in the Forgotten Quarter. He really liked being a detective and is kind of sad that there don't currently seem to be any more cases to solve.

These are his current unadjusted Stats:

Watchful: 87

Shadowy : 51

Dangerous: 80

Persuasive: 66

I'm mainly looking for a Patron to boost Shadowy as despite his revolting disguise, he's just not very stealthy

This is one of the few riddles that I know:

What do the poor have, the rich need, and if you eat it you die?

(UPDATE: I have a mentor now, no longer looking.)

The Jaunty Mystic seeks an Extraordinary Mind to learn from.
She had a most foolhardy encounter with a voice from a well, and charred her mind trying to decipher what it was shouting. Well, that wouldn't do for a mystic, would it? She's repented deeply of that decision and is on the straight and narrow now.

Watchful: 57
Shadowy: 105
Persuasive: 113

Thank you for your consideration! (Happy to do other social actions and donate Making Waves as well.)

Please advise. Thank you for your kind consideration.

Good day, gentlefolk, I am FiercelyFerociousFeminista, an observant & intriguing lady. I am somewhat newly arrived in the 'Neath & find myself in need of a Patron, particularly one that can aid me in improving my Shadowy Skills. I'm not very dangerous in the common sense of the word, and I'm fine with that, but would not turn away a patron who could help me in that arena.

My stats:
Watchful - 24
Shadowy - 14
Dangerous - 6
Persuasive - 28

I am an aspiring artist not associated with any movement. Despite my work in authoring short stories, I am limited in what I can achieve with my current knowledge. Thus, I request the patronage of a person of Legendary Charisma.

Dr. Lucy Gresham is a rising star in London, seeking a benefactor and future colleague. She is fond of adventure, urchins, and uncovering mysteries. As she is following a balanced path (investigations tend to uncover threats that need a good thrashing or are best avoided), all forms tutelage is welcome Once she finally achieves the recognition she deserves, she can promise regular assistance and a listing in the acknowledgements of all her papers.

Hello, I am an up and coming young man, something of a literary dilettante, and, much more quietly, a rising thief as well. I'm also a bit of an archeologist, but only because I want to get access to the University. I have certain urgent business that can only be resolved there.

As a former urchin, I am more than willing to flatter anyone who buys me lunch at Dante's Grill. A good meal is worth more than my dignity.

I'm seeking a patron to help me with any of my stats except Dangerous, which I'm saving for last.

My stats are:
Dangerous 47 - Puissant

Persuasive 87 - Compelling
Shadowy 84 - Sinister

Watchful 86 - Sagacious

I have two points of making waves to give away.

(Turns out the fallen heralds classified section is quite effective, I have found a patron - Thankyou!)

Glad tidings fair gentlefolk,

Oswald Kingley-Mortimer at your service, perhaps you have read my tales 'The Courtesan, the Rubbery Man and the Fluke' or 'The secret life of cats'? Both would serve well to inform you on my philosophy and sensibilities.

I've been a member of the community for some time but have recently returned from sabbatical and am currently seeking a patron to educate me on the finer points of Neathly etiquette, I understand that the reflected glory of my literary talents may be helpful for those of higher standing than myself and am more than happy for that to happen.

I graciously await your replies.


Seeking patrons for all stats which are currently:
Dangerous: 82
Watchful: 81
Shadowy: 79
Persuasive: 77

I don't know how the making waves thing works, but I currently have 5 points, which aren't of any use to me.

Thanks for reading, delicious friends.

(Currently have a Patron! Thank you)

Good tidings, delicious friends.

Surely you have heard the name of Frogvarian - a rising poet and author, and a brilliant detective to boot. Though, even one such as myself must admit, help and connections are invaluable if success is desired in the Neath. Thus, I have decided to seek a patron of an Extraordinary Mind.

I'm sure such a partnership will be beneficial to the both of us.


Watchful: 55
Shadowy: 22
Dangerous: 10
Persuasive: 41

As mentioned, seeking primarily an Extraordinary Mind for Watchful improvements. Planning on becoming a Correspondent in the future.

My Making Waves quality is at 6, though I have not figured out what its purpose is yet.

I'm patiently awaiting your responses.

After a long absence I'm back to Fallen London. I'm currently on my way to becoming a PoSI, and figured I should benefit from a patron while I still can. I dabble in all storylines, though I have a predilection for the persuasive kind. I am particularly struggling with my shadowy stat because I lack proper gear in that department. Thus, help from an Invisble Eminence would be appreciated. I'll gladly respond to any request in turn.

My unaugmented stats are the following:
Watchful - 90
Shadowy - 87
Dangerous - 94
Persuasive - 106

I'm afraid my knowledge of riddles isn't vast enough to provide one that hasn't been posted already.

EDIT: I found a patron, though our acquaintance was rather short because I became a PoSI much earlier than expected. I thought you needed to buy expensive clothing, have at least one hideout, and things of that sort, but it looks like I was mistaken.

Hello Ladies, Gentlemen, Squid and everything in between, my name is Osborn Draiss. I'm afraid to say that I cannot comment on my greatest works, as they are barely legal at best, but I assure you, they are great nonetheless. As a gentlemen who's base stats are:

Shadowy 54
Persuasive 41
Watchful 14
Dangerous *ahem* … 6

I would say that I could do with a Patron

I have also made 3 whole waves, if that means anything to anyone.

I would most prefer help with my shadowy work, as it is my favorite.

Edit: I have managed to find myself a patron. If someone else wishes to be my patron, I'm not going to say no, my social circle is rather small right now, but I'm not precisely high priority.
