Greetings, dear Londoners. With the help of fellow enthusiast Reinhardt Siegfried, I have been undergoing a project to better understand the nature of the soul. Perfectly safe and moral, I assure you. Well, most of the time. Sometimes. Depending on my mood.

Ahem.

Anyway...

Due to the amount of resources required, the chronic insanity of all my laboratory assistants, the efforts of everyone in power to stop me, and my own capricious nature, it has been a slow and tedious process.

So, I decided to cut some corners!

If, in your travels, you have discovered absolutely anything of note about souls, please post it here. With your help I hope to publish my findings for the betterment of all. Well...the betterment of most. I can't imagine the church will be too pleased. Or hell, for that matter. Ah, well.

A soul sold and found again. how? no devil could be so careless as to lose it, could they? but it feels exactly the same as the original, so it's not a fake; unless it is, but flawless.

I will accept all social actions that do not consume free evenings- and i will provide patronage to anyone who requests it, though it will be split between all requesters.
On psudeo-hiatus. Will be inactive and active and fluctuate without warning.

Fear not, for your spirit truly is renewed. Devils take pleasure in the touch of souls like fine wine, but are known to be rid of them soon after their sale. I myself have sold my soul two times now and have reclaimed it each time. While the trade of spirit and sulfur goes on and on and on and on, only so many things will restrict the sale of a soul: enhancements of the flesh from essence and rubber, the austere handling of infernal suitors, the sanguine stain on the metaphysical from a horror long forgotten...

It's interesting to note that devils will gladly buy the same soul again as soon as it enters its original owner. Or possibly any other owner. Can a person have two souls?

What I would like to know is:

1) What do devils do with souls once they have them, anyway? Is it just about the hunt, or is there some larger purpose? And
2) Do devils have souls?

Souls. Fascinating concept.

Sometimes, a soulless person is a barely breathing human-shaped lump of meat.
Sometimes, they are sharper than ever. What dictates the change? The strength of mind? Someone's willpower?

Are human beings the only one who have souls? Do cats, dogs, pigs have souls? Do the Masters have a soul?
And if it does exist, why does it seem that the Devils are seemingly uninterested in them?

Quite interesting questions. I can't wait to look for the answers.

Perhaps we should put quoted text in Spoilers - to more easily see which stuff is being copy+pasted, and what is our own additions to the discussion. ^_^

Doing so would also help prevent any unintentional spoilers to newer players just glancing at the thread.
