Question: How do you prefer your mushroom prepared?


I once had mushrooms prepared with eel and muter-salt. The cook was terribly amused at their joke that the guests were speechless.
The food was much better than the joke, though I may decline muter-salt for the next few months.

Certainly a zailor in dire straits after days without water might be tempted, but not one would take so much as a sip until they reached their very wits end with desperation, and even then they'd only find their thirst exacerbated and their death hastened. Given the less-than-final nature of death in the neath, however, this typically results in a desiccated and salt-cured variety of cadaver that zee-monsters find deliciously addicting. I'm told by an acquaintance from the tomb colonies that the inside of such monsters is a rather dull place to pass the time.


As far as losing a bet, I suppose there are worse things to ingest. I remember once I made a bet with a clerk in the dept. of menace eradication, and the loser was "treated" to a 7-course meal... prepared by the chefs at the Brass Embassy. I was laid up for nearly a month after that...

But I digress...

Question: What scientific advancement do you believe is most needed in the neath?

Do you know they have telephone lines in Hell?
Well, they might have been telephone lines. It's entirely possible they may have been whiskers, or trails of ants doing a sort of trapeze act. It's so hard to be certain with these things, in Hell especially. They're so very polite about it though. Why, I once spent a whole afternoon deposited in a sort of smelting because... well, that's not important, but suffice it to say when they retrieved me they were utter charming about the whole misunderstanding, and we even got to linger in the library, and... what was... oh! Telephones!
Yes, like they have on the surface, only prettier. We ought to have those in London! And while perhaps we couldn't run lines across the roof, we might very well run them through a mirror in one place and out in another! Imagine being able to make a phone call to a friend in the... well, not the Khanate, but in Port Carnelian perhaps! Wouldn't that be just dreamy?

Do you cultivate friends from far afield? If you do, how far could you sail from London and still have a friend with whom to stay the night?

I try my best. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at the whole not pissing people off thing. So the farthest I could go would probably be Wisdom, in the Sea of Lilies. He's not someone I'd want to stay the night with, however, based on the fact that Wisdom is a massive prison, and he's... not in a position of power, shall we say. So realistically, I could zail to London and that would be it.

Question: Given the chance, would you go to the Elder Continent? And if it's different from the obvious reasons, you know, being immortal, why?

If I ever got the opportunity to go? Perhaps I would. Y'know, it's all those mysteries and allure that just... pull you to a place. Will we ever know what the Elder Continent holds? Just so long as it doesn't involve zailing. I get zee-sick.

Now my question: Has the thought of finding a forbidden Name intrigued you at all?

Yes on both characters.
Sir Wensleydale is a bit of a scholar of that topic, though his duties at Port Carnelian and Doubt Street have priority.
Mr Netae actively seeks, and is open to any harmful social actions. Surely at least one of them will help them seek the name! They're also a bit of a jerk.

Question: How do you run your newspaper?
The imprecise answer is "Not much." From a practical standpoint, I've not used Doubt Street much (only for Affair of the Box and for Election 1895). I'm planning on using it more in the future, but I still need to rebuild my honey-well to sponsor voyages to the Deconstruction, so bearing that in mind I probably won't be able to gather the necessary resources for that until at least after the Election, since I first have the Great Work to (not) see through and the parallel grind for Master's Blood. But once the Bishop has gathered a mountain of serpents to wage war against Hell, I'm sure there'll be time to publish.

Aletheia is the name of my character's newspaper, and that speaks to its purpose: parrhesia. This is not speaking truth to power - those in power know the truth, and they must try to conceal it - but rather offering dissection and examination of society, whether it's in the form of meritorious reporting or scandalous exposure. And, of course, it takes advantage of that to try to create revolutionary support and encode meaningful information to revolutionary agents, though the reporting itself seeks a neutral, editorial tone - a well-informed populace is one that has the right to choose to defy the Laws and the masters above.

Some would argue that my endeavours have been... well, scandalous. But when there are such spectactular dfances on? You can't help but indulge. More so if you can barter for a kiss from Sinning Jenny. Her price is high but lemme tell you, she is a good kisser.

My question to you: What is the strangest yet most memorable honey-dream that you've had?

That is quite the question good sir. Gives me a lot to consider. Oh, if only I had my Darkdrop to help me think...
Sorry, getting away from the subject. I would definitely have to make a lot of research before accepting just to know what I am getting into, but with what I know now of them... yes?...maybe... Is it strange that I find their mysterious personalities more tempting than the promise of power or the privilege of becoming such a higher bei... ok now I am talking too much again, but screw it it is Hallowmass. Everyone gives out confessions.

And from you I ask, "Of all the mystic, mysterious and frankly bizarre creatures of the Neath, which would you choose as a roommate and why?"
Of course, considering they don't try to kill you right away. Or can get easily killed in those circumstances. Or is prone to.... oh gods, how many things to consider! All for just one room! Oh wait, I am not the one that must answer.

Well, Old Man - one hates to think of Forever, nevermind, it being Constrained to A singular Domain, tsk. I should rather imagine, should i be "i", for Ever, and keep things interesting, somehow, o'er eternities ... then i might outlast London, Neath, and the Surface-As-We-Know-It, if not even jolly Eldest Mother Earth, the Gaia - if only, as Her extention, After All . . .

The Butchering Doll would tap the side of the cheek with her finger. "Well, I don't see why not!" She'd grin, tucking standards of golden locks past her ear. "But I'd make sure to sell for heaps and heaps of money!" The young longshanks would laugh. "Suckers would be giving up everything, keeping me drowning in money! Sounds like a good deal.~" She smirked.

She'd lean in as she ask the next question, her smile only getting bigger.

"Now, tell me, do you think revenge is a dish best served cold? Something to plan and wait out? Or would you want to get things done as soon as possible, to make them pay quickly and swiftly?"

the old man smiles grimly and takes a swig of greyfileds reminds me of a question I was asked so many years ago on the surface old nemeses of mine had him at my mercy I let him go and over the corse of five years destroyed and killed everything he loved brought him back to the same place executed those people still loyal to him and hung drew and quartered him I think that answers both your questions actually why I went here

Having already removed his cumbersome hat, Hymenaeus fiddled his fingers along the rim of it for some time before finally deciding to answer. As he did, he reached for his already packed pipe that sit on the mahogany mantle beside him and lit the bowl. He squinted a little as the smoke hit his eyes from the first inhalation.
"All young men and women of the Neath have these desires. Such romantic, poetical notions of experiencing something better..." He twirled around a side of his beard that protruded sharply down from his chin. "Something better than this," he finally finished. "But now that I've seen it with my own eyes, I can say it is not nearly as glorious as one may assume. The people are no different to anywhere else. What matters is what you bring with you. That is what determines that you shall find.

"I would ask of you: Do you have a touch of religious fervor about you, or are you more concerned with the pursuits of academia? Or, perhaps, are you interested in the bridge that joins the two?"

Not in the slightest. I have seen so many folk drawn to their doom by a certain kind of quasi-religious fervor that I have lost count. Instead, I have devoted myself to two interrelated goals: To preserve London from the forces that would destroy her, and to advance the study of the Correspondence. I see the second as a necessary precondition of the first.

Now for my question: "Do you believe that the Liberation of Night will prevail? Why?"

I am in regular correspondence correspondence with one of the northbound. Not what you'd call a lovely lass but she does feed me such delicious nuggets of information on what she learns. I simply cannot stay mad at her for that time she tried to kill me, or that time she succeeded in killing me.

My question: What are your Christmas plans?
