Surprisingly, this is the first time the game has made me genuinely happy to have ratted out the Velocipede Squad. It finally feels good to have been good.

Let's compile all that is to do in Evenlode? I think I'm missing something.

1. Spur train line - lets dig some stuff.
2. Statue - as usual.
3. Cornelius storyline - grind Investigation through cards, 3 times.
3.1 Furnace talk - at London, new option after Cornelius.
4. Clay Highwayman - from card. Investigate with progress or medium Constables and/or Criminal renown items. Cp based, up to 5.
5. Magistracy - click all options to unlock everything.
5.1 Get Dispensations at barracks for favours.
5.2 Reduce your criminal record with dispensations at court.
6. New constable - choices affect only flavor text. requires Times at Evenlode, 3 times ever increasing. Last time is in the barracks.
7. Diving bell - after new constable, area improvement.
7.1 At bottom floor is Light-in-Exile. Can talk several times.
7.2 Talk to Commisiioner in nightmares after that, unlocks another option here.

Found something kinda sweet.

On a bench by the river, a rail worker and a copper are sharing a picnic. They sit close, for the warmth. Both are ignoring the glares of their peers.

So that was nice.

I think it's because the constabulary, especially inside the Evenlode, seems very fraternal. Most of the young constable's story is him being hazed before he's let into their order, and once he gets in he realises that there's more to this group than just enforcing the law. We see how insular the constables are when you try to join in on their card game and it's often noted in the flavour text for looking around the magistracy how superstitious they can be.

There's a reason the option to take a look around the magistracy changes to "consider the magistracy with new eyes" once you've completed the short story. There are many strange cases at the Evenlode and it's noted that some cases bypass the court entirely, so it's clear that there is a greater power passing judgement outside of public knowledge. There's also the matter of how people come to be recognised as constables at the magistracy.[spoiler]The final 'test' for the young constable involves him being suspended underwater until someone breaks and intervenes. He doesn't have to do anything, it seems entirely up to the people watching. So what if no-one intervenes? Does he just drown? Or is the rite a test for the people watching, to see if his life is worth saving? The most important question here, though, is how the hell does nearly drowning a man make him fit to be a constable?[/spoiler]I don't think it's a matter of the Evenlode constables being corrupt. A group doesn't need to be corrupt to be abusive towards its members. The magistracy constabulary seems very exclusive and exclusivity tends to breed a sense of superiority. It's certainly not uncommon for exclusive groups to abuse new members, it's almost tradition for a lot of them.

I'll have you know that the Velocipede Squad and I have donated tons of our money to charitable causes and maintain order and stability, by any means necessary! Besides, the people of London have already acknowledged me as above crime and law (London's Marrow), so it pains me to see that the Constables of the Evenlode still distrust me. In due time, perhaps...in due time...

For those that met up with the new Constable a few times, they can meet him again at the police barracks. Finishing his initiation opens up a new construction project (diving) in the Evenlode.

I gotta say, I'm loving how Mr Cards is a natural card shark and is abusing their powers in a literal children's card game, and wonder if there are special options for those that let Beechwood win.

A heads up: when Diving in the Magistracy, although a mix of dangerous/watchful is recommended it uses mostly watchful. And Nightmares reducting gear comes in very handy too!
PELIGIN!

There’s more to explore when diving, maybe. Talking to the commissioner in Parabola tells more about the Magistracy and seems like it unlocks another room to explore when diving.
There is more! There’s also a use for a certain broken promise.

Well hey, this is...exactly what we wanted from the new outfit restriction mechanic:

Time for some 'strategic' adjustments...lets go diving.


Hah...all the MA boosting stuff conflicts with the best dangerous & watchful. Of course it does!

Yeah, specific, strategic, good reason to be a tight trip.

With Traces of the First City as a resource, and Archaeologist being used as a secondary variable in recent content, I don't think that Expertise of the First City would be used in the lab.

I speculate that it's going to be fieldwork.

Alright, I have one character at Polythreme. For now, nothing; no storylets or cards that suggest that.


I will do one of the carousels, specifically in the Investigating... one to see if I can uncover anything.

UPDATE: Nothing.

Just for due diligence -~sigh~- I have my character take the Tramp Steamer. Nope, nothing there too.

I've been heavily delayed in pursuing Magistracy lore for one simple, joyous reason: I've FINALLY found a use for my Winged and Taloned Steed!


Edit: Also wow, the image system is so uncooperative that linking directly from imgur is easier somehow.

[spoiler]During his near drowning he's rejected by the... thing at the bottom. It dislikes creatures of law, and thus recognizes him as a constable. Lawbreakers and outcasts are taken and transformed, and neutral persons are mostly ignored.[/spoiler]

So, just the statue and spur rail line that gives nothing? Not really complaining, less scrip to grind, so, whatever. Unless I miss something.

Cornelius investigation is only three stages, unless it continues somewhere else.
Fastest is to buy investigatingfrom canal workers for lager.
You can also spend it on clay highwayman.
