Protégés Seeking Patrons (Only protégés need post) Messages in this topic - RSS

Posts: 1

Hello there! The Furtive Urchin, a fairly Shadowy individual, is somewhat urgently seeking a Patron to help them improve basically any skill that doesn't involve walking away with the contents of another's pockets. They have a bit of a compulsion and seem to have shamefully neglected any other skills. It's becoming a problem.

Their stats are as follows:
Watchful: 20
Shadowy: 61
Dangerous: 10
Persuasive: 37

They also have a tendency to refer to them self in the third person. Any expressions of interest can be forwarded to The Furtive Urchin in their Rooms Above a Gambling Den.

PS: The Urchin has been fortunate enough to secure a Patron for Watchful and Persuasive pursuits. They offer their thanks to this charming agency for the recommendation. (They could probably still use someone willing to teach them how to throw an adequate punch as they still get roughed up in alleyways semi-regularly...)

Riddle: I have no feet to dance, I have no eyes to see, I have no life to live or die and yet I do all three. What am I?

Hi all, Setara here hoping to find a patron. I am the sort who gets in bar brawls and then hangs out at the palace. I have an affection for Rubbery Men and Tomb colonists. I'm also aiming to get every pet I can.

My current stats are:
Watchful 90
Dangerous 95
Persuasive 94
Shadowy 85

Hope to hear from someone!

Cayna Emor came down to the Neath to seek revenge for her murdered sibling. She's gotten pretty good at the seeking part, but the physical aspect of her whole "revenge" thing could use some work. She is looking for a patron who can help her work out some of the kinks in her stabbing technique, maybe give a few pointers. She's not normally very ferocious so you might have to egg her on with some frustrating academic misrepresentations first (or you could try flirting, that'll always get you stabbed).

Watchful 78
Shadowy 15
Dangerous 58
Persuasive 23

Helen Freshman, on the other hand, is an archaeologist, cryptolinguist, Correspondence scholar, and a guest lecturer at Benthic University. While her wit is inescapable, she would like to be a bit more well-rounded and is eager to learn. She may or may not be distantly related to a certain ordained Franciscan who fell with the Fourth City. Her chiropteromantic zodiac sign is the Crow.

Watchful 104
Shadowy 58
Dangerous 32
Persuasive 63

A riddle you say? She tears an empty page from a notebook and sketches out a series of abstract lines that look suspiciously like Correspondence. She hands you the page. Apparently your task is to identify where on the sigil you can safely place another stroke so that it won't make your eyes bleed but will still set the paper alight. Is this what she does in her spare time?

I am looking for London regulars who are proficient with the Watchful or Shadowy side of the Neath. Duelling was my favourite pasttime for a while...alas I am lacking the various other qualities that are required to properly thrive down here. I'll be very grateful for your help!

(Stat update after 9 days (1.1.2020))

Watchful 43 -> 66
Shadowy 48 -> 64
Dangerous 122 -> 136
Persuasive 66 -> 81

A riddle? I am the riddle. If you want to get to know me, I'll gladly spend a good amount of time to be your penfriend, if you wish me to be. It can get very lonely without one.

Already found somebody for Watchful + Persuasive while personally raising Shadowy via social actions. Should be fine for now!

At your service good noble.
I hate to intrude but, well... let’s just say that I’ve only recently arrived in town and find myself short of friends. I’ll admit the city is a bit cold to strangers. I’ve heard you described in certain quarters as one who would help a new arrival find their feet, in return for... certain recompense. You watch my back and I’ll watch yours, as they say. I may not be much more than an ear to the ground currently, but helping a man up today means he can fight beside you tomorrow, you know.
My card. I hope to hear from you shortly.

Chance DuVert is not particularly new to the city, but they are very impatient and prone to leaving projects on permanent hiatus when things get too slow (like their creator, they probably have ADD). They're impulsive and reckless to the point of self-destruction at times, but that is mostly because they are constantly concerned by how others perceive them. They are actually a bit of a romantic at heart, but they would never admit it to anyone.

Watchful - 94
Shadowy - 73
Dangerous - 83
Persuasive - 70

I'd prefer someone who could help with Persuasive, but anyone willing to help with any of these would be greatly appreciated! And Chance is pretty much friendless at the moment, so they'll take anyone. Thank you.

What belongs to you but is used more often by other people?


EDIT: Patron acquired! Thank you so much to Vivienne Thursday.

d0sboots is a newcomer to London who followed a nightmarish call that first led below, and is now leading... elsewhere. She's looking for any help possible, as buying a ship is required to continue her search...

Watchful - 60
Shadowy - 25
Dangerous - 18
Persuasive - 43

My riddle is simple: What is a Certain Individual's Name? If you know the answer, I (and many others) are *dying* to know...

Edit: Patron acquired! Thank you to the mysteriously named "Is this name available"!
