Whatever has not been confiscated by the Ministry of Public Decency... yet.

(Divided because of one spoiler tag limit.)

1. A seemingly innocent amateur study in chiropteran anatomy, however, known to induce nightmares and strange reactions in certain viewers:

3. A weighty bunch of collages:

Everyone’s dearest Deacon.

Memories of forbidden passion.

More roses!

Favourite vacation destination.

The Forgotten Quarter. (Done before the realization that it should be much more Asian than European. Oh those deceptive first impressions...)

That card. Again.

The Sun (blasphemously humanized).

4. There are rumors of a library as well. But most of its texts are in Russian, and the proprietress seems reluctant to translate more than tiny bits, muttering something about the Great Game’s foreign agents and their little secrets. Although everyone knows that she simply is too unconfident and too busy. (Too busy scribbling nonsensical ravings all over the walls of her room at the Royal Beth, to be exact. One shouldn’t look so closely at what Is Not.)

[ Jovial Contrarian | Wreck of the Berrenger | Liberation of Night ]

[spoiler][/spoiler]

"No, no. I won’t go there. Supporters of the Liberation will shower me in congratulations, and I can’t stand them."

"Supporters or congratulations?"

"Both."

Naturally. "What’s the occasion?"

"I’ve... slayed one of the star-gods."

"...How?" After several meetings at those Veilgarden parties there was less disbelief in her voice than it could have been.

"Convinced them that they don’t exist. Unintentionally, I swear. Just an innocent exercise in rhetoric! Can you imagine how hard it is to find a worthy opponent here in the High Wilderness?"

[ Second City | Mr Candles ]

[spoiler][/spoiler]

"I understand you, queen Ankhesenpaaten. I, too, miss the sky."

Ankhesenamun, she corrects in her thoughts. No more sense in the old name, no more hope for the new god.

It isn’t a hunch under his cloak, is it? Seems more like folded... wings?

"But I came to love your city," he adds.

"I wish you not to see another in its place, then."

[ Parabola | Season of Ruins: Tormented Dreams ]

She should have known better than to trust her worst nightmare.

And yet – what does it take to open one’s innermost secrets and sorrows? To walk one’s memories and dreams together? What else if not complete trust?

Not hers. His own.

Any theories about how it will end? Just curious.

Honestly, after what we’ve got in other Ambitions, I’m ready for literally anything.
I tried to put together what we know, however. And some of my guesses.
(SPOILERS!)

[spoiler]
The Topsy King
Desire (known):
To get his sanity back. (Nevertheless, even if he does, I headcanon that he will voluntary choose to stay in the Flit instead of returning to the Court.)
Stake (known):
The rest of his mind.

The Bishop
Desire (unknown):
Most likely still the same as in "The Flint": to become something other than a Snuffer.
Stake (unknown):
I’d bet on his current face and position: it is certainly important to him, but replaceable enough to risk it. And quite in line with the idea of unusual stakes.

Virginia
Desire (known):
To ensure that the betrayed Prince of Hell won’t come after her.
Stake (unknown):
No idea. Her mayoral power won’t last long anyway... Her majestic leopard hat is already gone... However, the devils are full to the brim with enticing offers, aren’t they? I expect something truly extraordinary.

The Manager
Desire (semi-known):
Surely connected with the King with a Hundred Hearts, but in which way? I doubt that he just wants to make the King love him again: it would be anything but love. Forgiveness, too, can’t be forced. So instead it may be some way to free the King. (Especially considering his words about the Liberation of Night.)
Stake (semi-known):
A location. This is all we have as a teaser/spoiler.
My own guess would be the location of the Garden:
1. He may have learned it from his uncle, the Capering Relicker;
2. Some of the players (the Bishop and the Masters) do want it.

Mr. Pages
Desire (known?):
To prevent whatever we were up to (blowing up the Bazaar, intervening in the bargain for the Sixth City, going North). Or... no?
Stake (unknown):
As a Master, he has no shortage of options here. Who knows what else could be hidden in the vaults of the Bazaar?..

The Monkey
Desire (unknown):
My only theory for now is that she has been a player of the Marvellous before and lost her human form – in the same way as the Topsy King lost his mind – and it’s a chance to get it back.
Stake (unknown):
What does a monkey have to offer?.. Judging by her attraction to prisoner’s honey, I can’t help but suspect that she has something Parabolan up her sleeve. (Despite that she doesn’t even have sleeves.)

So happy to meet December again! Was immediately inspired to draw them.

"Is that their mask, or their face? You do not recall them removing it to eat." (SS)

Interesting, very interesting indeed.

However, there is only one way to play the Game.
Those who follow the rules will eventually make them.
Those who make the rules will eventually create new Games to play.
And those who break the rules...the less said, the better.
However, in the end, all Games must end, and there can only be one Winner. Anything more or less would be a disgrace to all competitors, and charity an unsalvageable insult to the lives we live.
Regardless, I wish you the best in your endeavors, delicious friend...though not on my expense.

All shall be well,
--Canon

The true winners are the ones who have realized that they should play not against each other, but against the law of losing itself. The true winners are the ones who change the course of changes and put an end to all ends. All shall be well... forever, in the immortal eternal darkness."

More sketches of the Calendar Council!

Based on Diptych’s models.

[spoiler][/spoiler]

January’s double mask has always intrigued me. Hero Forge doesn’t have anything so specific, of course, but it has big guns that look hilarious with the description of February. For her, it is a derringer.

And yes, I know I draw May’s hair and beard longer and longer each time. The model made me realize that it’s exactly where I missed the "former Mesopotamian king" part of the impression (and not in the amount of kohl). Now it actually starts to resemble the image in my head.

The Nocturnal Nostalgist

Factions: Revolutionaries, Bohemians
Profession: Crooked-Cross

Her small curiosity shop is filled with incense smoke, dust and shadows. Visitors are cordially greeted with a cup of tea or coffee, even if they come only to have a look.

By day, it is just a usual place where one can pawn or buy antiquities, exotic rarities, archaeological findings and family relics. By night, it deals in different kind of goods: dreams, secrets and memories.

In order to escape the Bazaar’s control, not a single Echo is involved in her trade; only bartering. The Masters were trying to fix this with suffocating taxes and bans, but stopped bothering her after some unpleasant incident with cards. That’s why this shop is so beloved by Bohemians, many of whom often have nothing to their name but their art. And, of course, by smugglers. After all, secret correspondence may easily pass for a set of postcards, and an Auditor’s memory of a censored book only rises in price when the last typescript gets burned. On top of that, tendencies of the market don’t mean much here: the owner can unexpectedly offer quite a lot for something that has no special value apart from an unusual history or sentimental connection.

The Nocturnal Nostalgist is known for eccentricity. She wears a collection of keys instead of jewellery, keeps moths as pets and adores black roses of Hell. She attends social events in a mask and a funerary frock coat. But the most notorious peculiarity is her penchant for improbable deranged prophecies, and there are rumours about a heretical gnostic cult under her patronage. No wonder that she resides in the Royal Beth. Although fellow traders say that the Manager takes a cut of all dreams and mysteries that come into her possession, as if he doesn’t deem her insane enough to stay there for free as a patient. Or are there more agreements between them than simple rent?..

She is friends with the Honey-Addled Detective, and her selection of belongings and secrets often helps in his investigations. There are also regular customers even from beyond the mirror, judging by raven feathers on her desk. As for non-work-related sides of her social life, sometimes she is seen at the meetings of the Order of Those Who Will Not Be Caught Red-Handed, but its members usually don’t tell much. The only doubtless guess is that she doesn’t go there for chess: her game of choice is the Marvellous.

When she claimed victory, she asked for something nobody expected: to grant the wishes of the rest of the players. It wasn’t just against the rules – it contradicted the nature of the game itself, and the Masters swore to do anything but this. So then the Nocturnal Nostalgist revealed her true heart’s desire: the Liberation of Night.

All their enticing promises were for naught. She longed not for power, but for freedom to choose whom to be and where to seek one’s limits. She wanted not to bask in adoration, but to break the Chain that dictated who was allowed to love whom. She craved not the eternal life of the body, but the abolishment of death of the soul.

Horrified and obviously unable to fulfil it, the Masters had to agree to return to the previous one. They funded an expedition to the Mountain of Light, and at the turn of the century she ventured there with her former rivals.

After the exodus of London, she moved to Eleutheria where her poisonous sermons and blasphemous prophecies about the fall of false gods were much more welcome. Now her curiosity shop is found in Achlys. And what can accompany tea and hookah better than a bit of haggling and gambling?

In Parabola, the Nocturnal Nostalgist is a knight of the king and queen of nightmares. She appears as a rider in a black cape and card epaulettes. Hellish thorny roses grow right through her armour, and she casts a living shadow.

The Grosmeister

Factions: Great Game, Church
Profession: Midnighter

An unpretentious gentleman with greying temples and courteous quiet voice. Usually he wears a simple cassock or a modest but impeccable suit, and prefers not to take off gloves and round dark glasses even when indoors.

An enthusiast of chess and ciphers, he is a consummate priest of the Great Game. As a Midnighter, he is willing to hear the most dreadful confessions, always ready to offer the mercy of oblivion in irrigo. He doesn’t memorize names, believing them to be redeemed, but keeps all the moves in his mind, prepared to pull the strings whenever the need arises.

Professional honour means a great deal to him. He loves animals and children for their innocence and sincerity, and gladly accepts invitations to orphanages. However, he is far from a saint, and more than often relies on assassinations and conspiracies.

He first met the Nocturnal Nostalgist in the Order of Those Who Will Not Be Caught Red-Handed. Later he was sent to spy on meetings of her own Liberationist cult. That night they welcomed a zee-captain who got marked by the Halved, and the divine eye pierced the Grosmeister with its all-seeing gaze, immediately recognizing an intruder. But the Nostalgist, remembering him from the Order, offered him to work for them instead. He agreed; having mastered all the moves and matches of the Game, now he was left with no other ambition than to outplay the White King himself.

The Grosmeister doesn’t share all her views, thinking that the world, like a chessboard, should be both black and white. He would prefer to see the fall of the celestial tyranny not in the extinguishment of light but in its balance with darkness.

His logic and restraint perfectly complement her intuition and passion, helping her to avoid risky decisions. However, it is he whose philosophy of a universal Game inspires her, and this is an infinitely dangerous idea for someone who’s used to challenge and outplay fate itself, weaving chaos and treachery of cards into the strategic order of chess.

In Parabola, he is a living shadow cast by the Nocturnal Nostalgist, able to detach himself to be sent on missions that require his talents in espionage.

pleasure to meet you.

Has some ideas the Masters won't approve of like some items and establishing a Colony in Parabola. Update: a Basecamp has been completed, now to win back the Viric Jungle in order to build the Church itself!

I will accept most social interactions (not duping). I do enjoy role playing as well.
