"Trophy" Collection




I would definitely appreciate "Jaded cynic" as an alternative to "committed." Likewise I would love being able to build a "trophy room" using a multitude of my various characteristics like "procurer of savage beasts" and "fearsome duelist"

About me, it's fine if the developers decide to take hint from anything useful I could I write not just in this thread, but on the whole forum... Not that it is much, I'm afraid T.T

As much as I desperately wish there was a way to turn my head-cannon pairing into a constant companion, it would just be ridiculous in terms of gameplay or story.

Your Own Steam-powered Dirigible
Mr Fires' magnum opus. A noisy dream of brass, clockwork, and things you have no name for. Sane people will not ask what you had to pay for it. Some things cost more than a city. Well, most cities.
Respectable +5, Dreaded +5, Bizarre +5



(the cost would probably be somewhere in the region of 150x Strong-backed Labour, 75x Whirring Contraptions and 15x Bazaar Permits. I would definitely grind for this.)

I whould LOVE to have a Dirgible. I still hope you get the Market Beast at the end of the Light fingers ambition.

The idea of something affecting your character for a specified number of actions is very interesting! And not only with Gebrandt's remedies.... I boldly and strongly suggest the devs look into this! smile

I would advise against it actually. I played a game like that once called Metroplexity. It was fun but often you would end up wasting some of your buffs and lead to some annoying situations. It would also mean adding more new features and with all of the current bugs I would rather have new stories than a new mechanic.

In keeping with The Raconteur's position somewhere in the upper echelons of the Great Game, I went with a little accessory that no spy's home should be without: a ratly companion with a network of her own! I can almost see him handing them out as ornaments to friends and enemies alike, sitting in the library with a nice glass of Broken Giant as they compare notes on what intel's been gathered that week.

I have to say I find the idea of items that increase progress qualities rather interesting. Of course, you have to be careful to keep them from becoming too overpowered. Bonus points for everyone who picks up on the (rather blatantly obvious) references.

Unterzee Compass
Weapon
Found in the cargo of a ship that sank near a Greek island some twenty centuries ago, or so you were told. Part planetarium, part navigational aid and part map, the surprisingly intricate clockwork device promises to guide you away from danger. It also stubbornly refuses to point North. That's probably for the best.
An Experienced Zailor +1, Troubled Waters -1


Tedious Anarchist Pamphlet
Weapon
A book which ascends to such rarefied heights of political prose that no one in the Benthic press is capable of criticizing it. The writing is entirely impenetrable, but there are a few interesting economic figures in the back. If nothing else, it will help you know who has money or secrets worth stealing.
Investigating +1, Seeking +1, Casing +1, Suspicion +1
