Not seen this raised, but the 30 current ones are a bit... meh. Lacking originality and so on.

Some suggestions:

~ Flying East with the zeppelin.

Suggested title: "One small step for monkeykind..."

~ Getting all four marks (N, E, S, W).

Suggested title: "I am the Traveler, I bear the marks of all four cardinals"

~ Switching London to Anarchism (level 7, not 10)

Suggested title: "Anarchy in the British Empire"

~ Travel with the investor into the north

Suggested title: "Oh my God, it's full of stars"

~ Eat all your crew in Kingeater's Castle

Suggested title: "Fee, Fie, Fo, Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman"

~ Turn over Port Carnelian to the Khan, do as much as possible to side with them

Suggested title: "The wrath of Khaaan"

~ Complete the First curator mission in venderbight

Suggested title: "Wait until they hear what happened to New Crobuzon" (and yes: whoever wrote this should admit their reading of China Mieville)

~ Raise the Dawn faction to max

Suggested title: "The New Dawn is bright and clean and shines in the dark"

~ Gain all mascots

Suggested title: "Menagerie at Zea"

~ Upgrade all crew members

Suggested title: "Only the elite may apply"

~ Switch power to Hell; sell (that weapon), help Mt Palmerson NPC etc etc.

Suggested title: "Damned if you do, damned if you don't"

~ Kill all the named boss mobs

Suggested title: "Ahab's legacy"

~ Get 250 drowned pearls

Suggested title: "The Fathomking's heir"



And so on.


There's a load of hard-to-do things in Sunless Sea atm, and it would have been great if the level of inventiveness in the writing found its way to the achievements.

This is honestly quite easy to do. In fact you could probably grind out Anarchists to 7 long before you unlocked the other option that instantly sets it to 10 (reaching 7 will also set it to 10, btw). Of course that captain is then screwed for the remainder of his time at sea, but you can't have everything...

Good idea, terrible title.

Isn't this already an achievement?

Some are mutually exclusive, e.g. rat vs. cavy.

A lot of these are rare spawns... can you just keep killing the things in their zone until they spawn, or is it possible for them to never spawn for a given captain?

2ez.



If I didn't comment on something that's because I thought it was a good idea.

Some of these are good, but Fallen London & Sunless Sea have a certain feel to them which some pop-culture references might not quite fit. A few of my thoughts would be:

ZeaCat wrote:

A bit long; I was thinking "Pilgrim of Punishment" (Description "Suffer the Cardinals' wrath.")

ZeaCat wrote:

Suggested title: "Oh my God, it's full of stars"


Not sure about the title, but the hint/description would be "Venture to kingdoms unreachable."

That's a bit... cheery... "Alone." maybe? It fits with the quote that comes up when you do it.

Well, it's still relatively hidden - you have to visit the sunlit world and then travel further to unlock the option. So, it might be easy, but it's still not something many new players would find out how to do quickly.

I've not raised Dawn that far with my current captain - I hope permanently is only for that life!


Gregg Johnson wrote:

Well, yep, I agree. But it would be nice to have many other options regarding Khan and political factions.



Gregg Johnson wrote:

I don't think so. Finding the Dawn machine is one.


Gregg Johnson wrote:

Ok, well, make it getting 8. I have eight at the moment, I'm fairly sure that's the maximum you can get.

Um, no idea. RNG is random a guess.

Whelp, make it 500 then.

Being honest, the titles were me just throwing out cultural references, thus 'suggested'. I don't really know the lore, so there's plenty of people who will be able to give better titles.


Some more:

~ Complete the Zong of Zea. (Come on... it's incredibly difficult)

Suggested title: "Wrote your name among the stars"

~ Introduce blemmigans to 16 ports

Suggested title: "One step beyond" (props to anyone who gets the references here)

~ Bring all port reports to the admiralty

Suggested title: "News from across the world"

~ Get all three God attention / favors then deny them whilst having them

Suggested title: "Rubbing the Salt in, striking the Stone, risking the Storm"

~ Sell the Icarus in Black to Khan's Shadow, Chelonate, everyone who buys it (not sure who buys it - it'd be nice / make sense if at least these two bought it)

Suggested title: "Running guns to big game hunters"

~ Have x5 live specimens when the zoo isn't unlocked

Suggested title: "Zoology on the high Zea"

~ Eat the sigil ridden navigator, eat the urbane magician and raise "unaccountably peckish" to maximum

Suggested title: "...and some even filed their teeth to points"

~ Witness the death of the Presbyterate adventuress, have the Urbane magician, have the disillusioned doctor, win against the nacreous outcast, finished the sigil ridden navigators story (any which way), have the lady in lilac

Suggested title: "And your wyrd was cruel to those drawn to your ship lights"

~ Complete your ambition (ending the game) with no other crew but the lady in lilac (you can have crew, but must lose them before finishing the game)

Suggested title "Lone wolf of the Zea"

[spoiler]Unfortunately, no. Unless you can find a way to rid yourself of the Horizon Codex, raising Dawn Machine to Supremacy locks you out of passing beyond the Gate on all future captains. Granted, so does passing beyond in the first place.[/spoiler]

Ah, I didn't realize that [spoiler]the horizon codex[/spoiler] could be gained from more than one event.

Oh well, can't always do all the achievements wink
