Prof. Kan: To quote someone not yet born, it is only evil that knows no boundaries.

Also, my mother would backhand you to Wisdom if you were so unwise to suggest she is or could be "kept on a leash."

Sig. del Norte: That depends on what I can get out of them today.
But to the purpose: Morelways, Broken Giant, or Greyfields first sporing? Vintage of your choosing.

Oh, the "leash" was meant exclusively as a social metaphor. Of course no literal leash, we are no barbarians, are we?
But you surely do remember the times on the surface? London has had quite the societal revolution in just a few decades under ground. Women's suffrage? I don't believe we would have that right now if we were still up there. And most countries still have not. A woman as mayor? On the surface? You surely must be kidding!
So your esteemed mother should remember very well these times where most of her life was confined to the Drawing Room.

Getting to the bottom of certain mysteries, like who and what exactly are the Masters and the Bazaar? What are the Lorn-Flukes? What's up with Death and what has the Mountain of Light to do with it? Why does everyone want to go North? And of course countless others that come up along the way.

The other side of him tries to settle down and live a cozy and placid family life. A little consulting business on the side, maybe.
But with all that's going on in the Neath that seems easier said than done.

Question
Since we are already half-way there: What does your character think of traditional Victorian morals and values?

What I think of our morals and values? Well, some are agreeable, some are revolting and some are weird.

My question, who was the first person you met when you came here?

I am unable to recall who was the first player I met in the game, but I RP-wise the first person I met was the man in the cell across me when I arrived and they threw me in New Newgate.

Now for my question... What is your preferred way of temporarily dying here in the Neath? (duel, poison, autopsy etc)

--

pleasure to meet you.

Has some strange ideas the Masters probably won't approve of like some items and establishing a Colony in Parabola.

I will accept most social interactions. I do enjoy role playing as well.
I will not accept the Photographer or dupes, if you dupe me I will not accept other help requests from you, at most Calligula's or keeping watch over a certain building.

Wounds of an eldritch nature - the divine stigmata, if you prefer. The first time my character died was from a sacramental beer brewed with corn. It was an altogether unceremonious and pitiful way to go. It's the turning point in her characterization, really, since so much of her character was built on a longing for the Surface and the world above. Take that away, and there are important questions to be asked. She still prefers to avoid temporary death, though - old habits die hard.

How do I even choose? All of them are so nice! So if am allowed, I would say all of them. But if not, then my favorite must be the fisher kings, they are one of the nicer gangs.

Question: What is your preferred past-time down here, or in general?

"An excellent question. There are so many wonders that the Neath holds that one may experience regularly, and yet there are many things that do not change if one is on the surface or in the neath. Of course my own preferred past-time would certainly be an interesting conversation over some fine wine, or instead perhaps a taste of prisoner's honey. Either of those are excellent ways of keeping oneself from falling into boredom and idleness."

"Well, solving mysteries of course! Although that is already my day job, so as a past-time I would have to say...having an affectionate tryst with one of my many interesting lovers. Preferably while on prisoner's honey.

"And for my question: If you could, without any danger to yourself nor fear of the consequences, take anyone (or anything) to be your loving spouse, who or what would you yearn to be with?"

"Answering for a friend": The Captivating Princess, without any doubt. On the other hand, without the danger it wouldn't be the full experience.
But if I had the possibility to marry a second time after that, I would surely pick the Bazaar. That would be interesting! (at the least)

Why, they are positively adorable, are they not? Certainly, some people take, oh, a perverse joy in making their lives miserable - Well, that is to say, more miserable than they already are -, but unless the unslightly stains on the cobblestones happen to ruin the hem of your dress, I'm sure we can all agree that their very existence provides a very charming spectacle. Does it not?

A Noman? I have never spent time with one,but from what I gather their life is short. I guess that I would take care of them, play games, teach it kindness and what it means to be happy and alive. A short life is still worth living after all.

Truthfully, I am from neither. I learned about both after my seventeenth exile. Truly, can't the usurper find an ACTUAL prison?

Question: If you have been down here long enough to die multiple times, which one of your deaths would you find most embarrassing?

Being stuck in Hell and trying to use red honey to escape, only to discover that my ride out was in the Iron Republic.

If anyone I knew saw me now, they'd probably be just busy enough laughing to give me an opening to lobotomize them.

...Silver linings.


Do you think the loneliness of the human condition is a good or bad thing? Do humans need a certain amount of isolation, or would humanity be better off connected and able to share their thoughts and feelings directly with each other?

I think that the loneliness of the human condition is a good thing. As we have evidence that the Masters could read our thoughts and/or have the ability to extract those thoughts.
I don't think that the ability to access everyone mind is a good idea. human is a creature with minds that can be manipulated and disgust other people, and gaining unlimited access will make it worse

Replacement? You aren't intending to evict them from their own home, are you?

Anyway, they're delightful young women. A bit too interested in love stories and Gothic horror for safety, down here, but so far nothing untoward has occurred. I am still unsure what to make of the wait staff.

How will you end? The Surface? The Sanatorium? Or wings?

For my character, I retconned in a tenure on the zee taking place in their early time in the Neath, so the answer there is Venderbight. Their first trip in Fallen London is almost certainly exile. Their first trip on their own ship was, looking back through my echoes, probably to Polythreme for Jack-of-Smiles.

Discussion on that matter seems entirely the province of those who would endure the burden of a strongly held belief. Better in the interim for the liminal to remain indeterminate as regards such...a fraught circumstance.
