Hello Delicious Friends,

  • I want to start the cave of Nadir storyline, I've got 90+ supplies, I'm completely ready to go, except that I can't find a dratted eyeless skull! I've spent the last several days looking for one, to no avail. It's driving me nuts! I know to look in the "seeking curios and secrets in the forgotten quarter" section, particularly the "see the sights" and "wander the quarter" option, but I simply can't find one! What's more aggravating is that before I was even remotely ready to start, I did find one, and I found that the cards it made me draw (the ones that drain your qualities) were so annoying that I sold the dratted thing. Does anyone have any advice? Much obliged in advance.

    Personally I've got my skull with that system, so maybe it's just a case of bad luck - keep trying and you will find it eventually. Seeking Curios can be quite a profitable action, so you're not really wasting actions either - just get rich waiting for your Skull. Maybe consult the wiki to choose the most profitable option between those available at your current Airs of London level.

    Hm... accessing the Nadir four times simultaneously... no I am afraid I cannot allow such a risk. For your own good. Lest we find your skull in the Forgotten Quarter with an overabundance of forehead.

    I have one skull I can give you (I think you need to request it). Send my main account a message and it's yours.




    Thank you, but I don't think I can request them for this part after all. I scraped together the 400 echoes I needed to outright buy the cinder. Thank you though. good luck with the skull!

    Alas, I can't use other peoples' eyeless skull help at present, but I might in future. I suspect the problem is that by the time we Nadir rookies have figured out how eyeless skulls work – we've got one or more ourselves.

    I now have three. After looking at the wiki, I don't want to spend money re-running Fatelocked expeditions in the hope of getting The Lovers (the source of two of my skulls, huzzah), and Deep Blue Heaven will give me just one skull occasionally.

    So my plan is to Seek Curios in the FQ, whilst building up supplies to their max. In the unlikely event of finding two more skulls (I'll probably run a Deep Blue Heaven or so just on the off-chance) I will sell my grim collection for a Cinder and come a-begging here. If not, I'll sell one, use one for the Nadir unlock, and continue the fine tradition of offering one here for a day of so before hocking it to the Factotum.

    Buying a Cinder seems absurdly simpler than wringing six benighted knick-knacks from the RNG. Argh. Also, my boosted Watchful is only 131. Does this make the Nadir too ambitious?

    Vexpont - in my experience the Forgotten Quarter cards "Wander the Quarter" and "Seeking Curios" are the best way to find Skulls, although it is random. Do remember to stop every so often to reduce your Nightmares.

    If you have three skulls, you're more than halfway there. Don't give up now!

    @Vexpoint: The nadir is never too ambitious, but there's a point where you should stockpile more, rather than less. I went there with watchful under 120- but it took all 100 supplies i packed, or just about. Try not to use any options that leave it up to chance, as a failure with second chances currently still consumes the supplies.

    As it stands, the simple option is to take the 100% option of a cautious approach whenever it is available. on average, you'll lose the race at 20 progress and need to drive off virigina[1]. you'll get three progress and lose 10 more supplies from this- so you're currently at 24 progress and 70 supplies. continue to use the cautious approach. you'll hit 44 with average luck when orthos beats you there[2]. You'll need dangerous 132 this time, for certain success- or you can gamble. Either way, assuming you succeed, you should now be at 49 progress and 40 supplies. So long as you continue at your current pace, you should make it to the cave of the nadir before the unnamed rivals catch up. To save supplies, whenever you see "A sign", take it, whenever you see "A chance to sabotage X" and you don't have "a sign", and your rivals have at least 2 progress, take it- it removes two rival's progress instead of one for a supply, and a lighter cost, generally.

    If you're really dedicated, whenever you see any other no-supply airs actions, take them for the re-rolls. (since you might get to hinder more rivals that way, or get more signs. on the other hand, they only have 0.5 epa or a minor nightmares reduction, so do as you will)

    Thanks Grenem & Eleonorae, esp. with regard to hindrance options.

    There's 'failure' – ie, NPCs catch up with you for narrative effect and you have to play chess, get them drunk on rare wines etc., and there's actual failure, where you blow it/run out of supplies and have to restart. Because the Nadir storylet has a lot of emphasis on the former, I've found it tricky to calculate my chances of the latter, but probably I've been pessimistic.

    Being a little committed skull-wise, I'm perservering with the search. My strategy has indeed been to repeat 'Seeking Curios and Secrets' in the FQ, and take the potential Rare Success branches for skulls whenever they appear. But since this is an appeal to the RNG, when you actually want something to arrive...

    So I'm intermittently holed up in the FQ with a small crate of laudanum and a copy of '101 Exceptionally Soothing Bedtime Stories in Which Nothing Bad Happens to Anyone's Eyeballs'. In case of getting 5 skulls and converting them, I will be back here to beg for my generously-donated prize. Of another skull.

    I discovered yet another Eyeless Skull on my last expedition to the Quarter, and I'm looking to get rid of it as quickly as I can. (It lobbed a Forgotten grenade into my opportunity deck almost immediately.) Let me know if anyone needs it, it's getting sold in the Bazaar in a couple of days otherwise.

    Exactly, unless if you plan on asking six different people for six skulls before receiving any of them (you can only ask for a skull if you are ready to embark on the expedition but have no skulls).

    I have made it to the Nadir on Alys with the first eyeless skull. But I lack the qualities and the money to actually get inside save by...another five skulls. I'm grinding for rare successes in there and I've gotten one over the past...I think it's almost a week. Doubly frustrating because not only is it a rare success but I need Airs to access the two storylets with the potential to drop one in the first place. Anyone have advice (or skulls, please)?

    I got two in the space of a week, but maybe I was lucky. Honestly, I shy away from selling things -- especially since I always come short on money during festivals that upgrade companions. But mayyyybe. I just spent a lot on various faction items and I don't sell anything I can't reobtain readily. I'm something of a hoarder (it's an issue).

    However I do greatly appreciate the advice. Thanks a bunch. <3

    I happened upon an eyeless skull today, and I would very much like to be rid of it. Unfortunately, due to its very nature, I will most likely have to dispose of it within this week. Sending me a message soon, and it shall be yours.

    Hi, Cully,
    As it happens, I acquired one late last night. Drop me a line if you still need it. No need for menace reductions.

    Dropped you a line! I appreciate it. Fallen London folks are unfailingly generous in my experience. It's rather nice, as a mostly novice gamer.

    They told me it couldn't be done, that a Fallen Londoner arrived in the Neath after Hollowmas last couldn't manage it for months yet. They told me I'd never get to hand Mr. Irons a knife and a candle either, but I proved them wrong there. I'm close to a way into the Cave, and close to entry into the Exceptionals, all without intercession of Fate or any effort but my own merit. Will you help me prove them wrong again, or shall I go it alone as before? I will understand either way. I am merely a tad pressed for time to act or I wouldn't presume to ask in the first place. Mister Penstock will lock his downstairs doors soon, and I can only do so much.

    If you're concerned the skulls will end up in the hands of a certain faction, I am glad to guarantee that they will not.

    That most definitely sounds like a very worthy goal good sir and I for one applaud you for your determination and for what you have achieved and doubtless will achieve as well.

    Should you be in need of another skull to add to the twenty you will be getting you need only let me know and I will gladly give it to you to further your efforts.

    Uh... a quick fix is to sell them all and then ask for an eyeless skull on the forums when you're ready? The downside of course is that you'll have to amass either 400 echoes or pay fate for entry to the Nadir. Strange as it sounds, conundrums like this are what makes FL fun smile

    John Savage, I am the player who asked you for a skull and will of course totally understand if you decide to keep it, I have never had one before and hadn't even realized that they can be sold for that many echoes instead of giving them away! I have tried my luck once more with asking another player, but I am also fully prepared to go searching for one myself in the Forgotten Quarter.

    The option will show even if you have entered the Nadir, you need 60 supplies and no skull. But as you can sell skulls, for 30 echoes on the bazaar tab or 62.50 if you don't mind advancing the Liberation of the Night, I just sell mine as soon as I get them.

    It's been mentioned before, but to get rid of those undesirable cards, equipping the Talkative Rattus Faber (to lower your stats below 50) or a visit to the PickPocket's Promenade or another area that rids your hand of cards will also work. So that you may continue to collect those valuable skulls without filling up your hand with stat-draining cards.

    I've recently come into possession of one of these odious little objects and I don't foresee having any use for it for quite some time.
