My question: What are your Christmas plans?

A day at the carnival with my Blemmigan friend. We'll dance with bohemians, eavesdropped on the honey-addled, and end with hot wine to make our dreams dance with sugarplums! I can't wait.
My question: If a heavy snowfall trapped you in your residence for a day, how would you spend it?

I assume "shoveling out" is not supposed to be the answer? Well, then, reading mostly. I do have some recent Fourth City acquisitions that need more study. This will also involve a warm fire and warmer mulled wine.


On the first day of Christmas, my true love asked of me: What would you pull out of Mr. Sacks' terrible sack?

Oh, a chilling question! Well,The good Preacher here must assume that,whathever happens, a life short must be spent,not in dread and circles,but in hope and revel; so, the path is clear:I would try to murder a Master.
Failling that, I guess that charging The Bazaar with an Skyglass knife in hand and The Constables in toil while singing HOJOTOJOHO! would be interesting...
After all,moths must blaze,aye?
Muy question: whats would you gamble in a game of cards,if The price is your Heart Desire?

I first came to the Neath seeking to petition the Traitor Empress to provide troops to reclaim Ireland, and more importantly, my family's land there. Of course, I was woefully misinformed about the actual nature of her court these days. I still want that, so that's why I sought out the Heart's Desire card game. I've been waiting for the news that the game has begun for so long, I now suspect that is was simply some incredibly elaborate hoax. So now I'm simply want my name known and my legacy secured with the gentry down here. Feudal titles were waning even before the Fall, so now I'll be established using the tactics of the modern era.

And now my question: What could a devil offer you that you'd sell your soul?

(I wonder I don't think in fallen London Ireland has rebelled successfully yet, then again your capital city being pulled into the earth and your queen abandoning you can't help.)

Absolutely nothing! It is shameful that so many of London's good citizens have given into the temptations of hell. Certainly, I do not blame the devils themselves for their actions- even they are nothing more then the creations of God, sent here to see who among us is not fit for heaven. I for one, think part of the blame may rest on the shockingly low standards set by the so called 'bohemian' sect, for though I have nothing against artists, the mindset of hedonism does tend to lead towards dark paths.

Question: What factions do you hold affinity for? Which do you despise? Why?

(I've left it ambiguous in my character's backstory whether or not the Irish revolts ended up being successful or if the just resulted in the sacking of her family's Abbey. Because whether or not they're successful, your conquer's capital city disappearing is enough of a spark to light the tinder that's always been there. The Irish revolt every generation or so in our world anyway.]

Miss Bell ponders the question. "I like the urchins. They're very much like myself. I can live with the clergy, even if I'm not really part of the same Church, and they do good things so I might like them as well. Devils are worthy of hate. They take away the silver gleams from people. I don't really care enough about the others."

She pauses. "Well, zailors are nice too. They tell wonderfully secret tales. I suppose that means I like them as well."

She twists a lock of hair around her fingers, deep in thought. "Do you think doors should be thought uncanny on account of being opaque?. I mean, there isn't anything stopping them from playing pranks on people."

"I am not quite sure whether I fully take your meaning, here. But are not all doors uncanny, by their very nature?"

The freckled professor shakes her head a little.

"Let us talk about chess instead. What is the most enjoyable way to play? Against a friend? A boatman? In a dream? As a metaphor for international espionage?"

The old man smiles and laughs softly. Why not all three? After all chess is such a multifaceted game and in London one always seems to have another queen in the eaves

What is London to you? A refuge, a prison, a home, a curse or something else entirely?

"London?" the lady asks, the smallest quirk of her brow showing her amusement at the question. "London is nothing. London is a stepping stone, a backdrop, a tool. London is simply the means to my desired end."


"What else could have brought you to London? How does it keep you here?"

"The mysteries and treasures could have brought me down here, rather then the confusing mess that originally brought me below."
Hemsworth briefly pauses in thought, staring outwards.


"But here's a question for you, what is the most displeasing way to die in the Neath?"

Huey Nomure/Mischievous Socialite: *raises eyebrow with a playful little smile* "I'm sorry, did you say "would you" or "did you"? Either way, that's a long list."

Perky Talespinner: "Tigers! And panthers. And lionesses! Well, let's say I have a soft spot for big cats. Beyond that, anyone who can genuinely impress me is fair game!" *drums fingertips on their rifle* "No pun intended. Kind of."

What's your favorite color of the Neathbow?

Eva May Canning:

"I've long dreamt of a stilt house in the Swallowing Isles, overlooking Tiggelaar Bay. With a large telescope and a weather station on the roof, to study the movements of the false-stars and the winds of the Neath. The instruments would need protection from the wax-wind, of course.

"Come to think of it, there should be a cannon, too, to keep pirates away. All other travellers would always be welcome to enjoy a glass of Morelways (or more) and some lively debate. I'd keep a lending library of all books banned in London and maybe a few boarding rooms for exiled scholars. Repeat visits don't help with making Venderbight more interesting after all!


"Now, imagine that, with the help of Red Science and Correspondence, I could fashion a protective suit for you, to visit the Surface and spend a whole day without having to worry about Sunlight. How would you spend your time up there?"
