Hello,

here there are (rightly so) many threads on reviews and feedbacks. However sometimes I miss some tips on the game itself, especially in the absence of a wiki.
So I was thinking we could have a thread to list all the possible uses of the various goods and objects we can meet during the game - it happened to me several times that I would like to sell something in London but I hesitate because I don't know if it could be useful somewhere, and for what.
I know that things will surely change during the development of the game, but it could still be useful I think.

So, who wants to start? smile

At the moment there doesn't seem to be much to trade but here is what I know. Profits are minimal if you buy things but if you get things from looting pirate ships.most sell in London and only a couple of things have a slightly better price elsewhere. I'm sure as more ports and shops open this will change so there doesn't seem much point in listing places and prices.

other things

Hunting Trophies can be given either to the nuns for a terror reduction or the monks for Memories of Distant Shores, Tales of Terror and Zee Stories (one of each).

Recent News - sell for 10 echoes in Venderbight, or dock at a Light ship for 2 points of Terror reduction.

Visions of the Surface sell for 15 echoes in Venderbight

Once you have met the Poissonier Strange Catches give 5 echoes and either 1 or 3 supples.

I haven't managed to sell everything to the Scholar at the University as I am trying to get everything for the Zong but Captivating Treasure and Judgement Eggs are very profitable, the one time I managed to get a Fluke Core it fortunately covered repairing the damage, replacing sailors and reducing terror that I received (both during the fight and as a consequence of letting the scholar have it).

Sorry RL means I am not a very active player at the moment. No social actions unless you are prepared to wait and definitely no sparring or other mult-action things.

No Calling Cards or boxed cats please. Will take dupes on the affluent photographers. Other social invitations welcome. Parabolan Kittens usually available, send me an in-game social action saying you want one and I will get one to you as soon as possible.

Recent News can also be given to the sisters at hunter's keep to talk to one of the sisters again for 10 terror reduction.

Keep in mind, though (at the risk of providing spoilers!), that diamonds are forever, but the sisters aren't. Stygian Iron can be sold in Whither for 3 Tales of Terror or Polythreme for 30 echoes.

I updated the first post with the result of a couple of hours of travels across the Unterzee. Note that the "Explore" action in many ports changes with time, here I could get only one (in one case two) outcome.
Also, I didn't put the fragments' gains unless they are together with other objects, and I wrote the Echoes' gain not involving the shop selling (it is still incomplete though).

I am very doubtful on the outcome's frequency for those actions that give two different results, I put the "rare" marking for the one that for my limited experience is less frequent.

Just been out to the Khanate. I don't know if these results are variable or not and I used up my stock of 25 Drowning Pearls but I only had 1 spare of the other items. So there are things I didn't get to and I hope I don't get sent there again until I have a chance to get more of the needed items.

Khan's Heart

Gifts to the Taiman

5 Drowning Pearls gave 1 Taiman's Mercy

Strategic Information gave + 2 Taiman's Mercy, + 50 echoes, - 2 Admiralty Favour

Using 3 Taiman's Mercy gave - 3 Khaganian Suspicion
Using 4 Taiman's Mercy gave + 2 Leopard's Condension

5 Darkdrop Coffee to the Leopard gave 1 Leopard's Condension

Khan's Glory

Giving a Pewter Horsehead gave - 5 Terror, - 1 Khaganian Suspicion, 1 Memory of Distant Shores

The 15 supplies and 2 mushroom wine gives strategic information. Completely not worth it, unless you find the supplies.

The mutton island encounter with the man on the beach can give you 50 fragments - if you have a zee story and a tale of terror. Sheperd's wake's third option gives a zee story, while the first gives a tale of terror. So basically a words hunter's keep - at least until the keep burns down.

Don't forget to mention that you can sell mushroom wine in five-counts for a 2-to-3 profit.

Going to the surface provides a big Terror reduction (I went from 23 to 0) and provides access to some storylets on the surface, although I suspect most of the eventual content there hasn't been built yet.

In addition to penknife's words on the Surface...

There's a storylet that gives you 300 Echoes if you succeed, but that's usualy just for covering the insane amount of Echoes spent on fuel. You WILL need a lot of it, and I don't suggest going there until you've at least upgraded your ship to one that has higher Hold space. The Terror reduction is rather significant, though - even though going back to London will almost certainly reduce your Terror to 50, at the cost of a Nightmare (which isn't all that terrifying, to be honest).

For the surface, it is easy to go to the sisters, sell all but 6 supply, go to mt. palmerston, fill your hold with fuel, then hunt for your hunger all the way to the canal. Finally, make sure you have max number of sailors, the surface kills sailors fast.

updated the list with the info from Lady Ciel, nameless, penknife and Chevalier.

Also added the results of another (very productive!) explore outcome of Whither and the Delivery storylet at the Station III (which in terms of items gives only 1 secret in a couple of actions, but it gives the possibility to obtain fragments and Acolyte's Favour, which I suppose can be useful during subsequent passages to the Station).

Is there any known use for the Egg other than selling it to the University?

Or, more importantly, is there a way of getting another one after the first had been sold?

My line of thinking here is, if the Egg-producing storylet is repeatable, cashing Eggs in immediately is the way to go - as I don't imagine one can have more than a single Egg at any given moment. Otherwise, I would rather hold on to it in case a more intriguing application appears in a future update.

There is also a storylet in Khan's Heart (I forgot the name, unfortunately) which has an option to buy the Soothe and Cooper Longbox (where I got mine the one time I got one) or options to buy other items such as drowning-pearls and what was advertised as a pot of violent ink for 77 echoes. I can't remember all of the items, nor the names of the options, but it was from the something awaits you option.

@Kerine, interesting storylet, didn't see it! Do you need to have the trading license?
