A fine and good season for darkness and murk amidst the spires of this gloom festooned metropolis! I bring season tidings of a coming event, All Hallow’s Eve. Or as those posh surface goers are so fond of calling, "Halloween".
I have re-purposed this old forum thread that we might ensure continuity and leave the rest of the forum uncluttered with more threads. Here we can speak of the trouble that decent citizens might get up to after the lamplights go out and curfews set in on this fabled night. Information on notorious individuals will be made available to those new to this oddity of our underground city.
Individuals of Note (be on the lookout!) - Do note that we may possibly encounter other outlandish characters this year!
The Larcenous Rubbery Man: A distasteful creature to look upon, but willing to reveal the dark secrets of its kind if you will so let it.
A Very Dour Special Constable: The Masters keep many agents and servants, but none are more public and loyal than the black-clad special constables. On special nights each year they may approach prominent citizens with important information.
A Genial Magician: A capable figure from amidst the war of the Shroud and the Glass, yet he has made pacts with forces beyond even his wiles.
The Bishop of Southwark: A boisterous and ranking clergyman, his strength of faith is matched only by his indomitable ambitions.
A Diabolic Diplomat: As Devils go he is dangerous and cunning, but this time he brings more than the risk of damnation.
The Haunted Doctor: Here is a gentleman in sombre clothing of good cut, but his past haunts him and his present troubles cloud his thoughts. Be wary, it is certain he is entwined with the Revolutionaries!
A Navy Liuetenant (the Presbyterate Adventuress?’): A brazen soldier from far off lands, she speaks of a lost bet and prophecies she believes hold no sway.
Interesting Qualities to Consider:
- An obscure quality, "Putting the Pieces Together: the Drownies" can be garnered for use during this holiday in only a few ways of which I only know one (perhaps the only). Adept thieves might ‘visit’ the House of Cubit Square and during the Heist come across the Weeping Maid. She will gift this strange reflection at the cost of lost time.
