Does anyone have an echo of sparing the fungus? I'd love to see it.

@ Azothi
I was struck by your spider council mantelpiece item (sorry, off topic). Where is it from?

It's not my mantelpiece (it actually belongs to Hotshot Blackburn, another member of these forums), but it's a Fairly Tame Sorrow Spider can be purchased from the Bazaar, and the mantelpiece is 6,500 of them (or about half a Cider's worth).

Great writing. And I loved the 'An artist doesn't need to suffer for his art' bit. Pretty important to remember.

I played this one a little late, but I really enjoyed it. The rogue's gallery at the auction was a lot of fun. I particularly liked how there were were four stories seamlessly combined into one narrative - the poetic illness, the Doctor's experiment, the mysterious auction, and your various co-conspirators maneuvering to take part in the final descent. The last part was extremely trippy in a good way.

Ah, thank you. I had no idea spiders also accumulated into achievements, as well as weasels.

They cannot. That is the name of the Sorrow Spider (because only one of each type of animal can be named)

Coming in late to say I absolutely adored this story. Every glistening inch of it. Fallen London has so many amazing characters, and I'm always happy to see them get the spotlight they deserve. Every twist and turn and luscious description was just delightful. And of course, I had a chance to fill Gul with more weird alien consciousnesses! The option to become more monstrous is always a big plus. ^_~

Just getting around to playing this one myself, and it's utterly fantastic, though as usual I've got analysis paralysis when it comes time to make my final choices.

Question for all: Does anyone have an echo of the "death-dealing" choice? I'm curious as to how death by knife differs from death by magnanimity or mastication.

It personally considered the death bringing to be merciful - I didn't know back then how close the heart was to naturally dying after all, just that it would be 'soon' - but what is soon to a being as old as that? It felt rather cathartic too - a final release of spores upon the ground, growing into new fungal forms as I left.

^I don't have an echo for you, but this is my reasoning for picking that option, and a little of what it felt like to see.

Thanks! I went ahead and chose this option as well, and I'm perfectly happy with how it turned out.

Late to the game, but maybe someone'll stumble accross this sometime: what exactly *was* that [spoiler] bleeding fungus, who (or what) had driven that knife through it and to what end?[/spoiler]
