    I'm ready to become a crooked cross if I can get a success on the action. I only have a 30% chance to succeed and I've failed twice with confident smiles!

    I got Acquaintance: the Wry Functionary up to 5 and spent the 15 Fate to unlock his conversational story.

    It's great! It uses up no actions and is just a big rotating menu of things you can talk to him about and sometimes the results are randomized and unlock the option to venture onto other subjects. It's word-tastic. There's an optional mystery story that you can pursue that branches off from it although it's possible that pursuing it might dynamite your relationship with the Functionary. (I don't know if it does but it seems like it could.) Still, mysteries!

    Operation dinner party day was a success and I now have my shiny tier 2 job, cheers for the help.

    Is there any benefit to notability 3 or 4 or should I just forget about it until I can stomach the push to 5 for the tier 3 jobs?

    While I waited on one of those 'living story' bits in order to get a map to pursue my ambition to Polythreme, I clicked around a few times in the Forgotten Quarter and found an eyeless skull. So I went to a cave... I think... It's all a bit fuzzy... What was I saying again?

    The Nadir can definitely be confusing. It helps to know what cards specifically you are looking for.

    The best is one with a picture of khanate armor on it. Let's you trade in second chances for valuable items like Airag and searing enigmas.

    I randomly got an Eyeless Skull from doing Seeking Curios in the Forgotten Quarter, but I am in no way ready to do the Cave of the Nadir

    Should I save it and just deal with these shitty cards for a while (basically, never draw cards again until I do it), or sell the skull I got for 62.50E and just hope to find another one later when I'm ready to do the expedition?

    There's another step after the bit requiring a skull, so if you wanted to just do the expedition part to burn off the skull, you could.

    yeah just blowing through the expedition asap might be your best call tbh. i would say all you really need is watchful at like 150+ after gear and maybe 85 supplies and you should be good to go

    oh I guess maybe have some strangling willow absinthe and connected great game

    Yeah I'm at like 110, I've been focusing on Shadowy and Persuasive to do Heists and Wilmot's End for a bit. I'll start on Watchful once I can grind money more easily to pay for things.

    Is there a good place to farm up foxfire candles? I've been doing unfinished business in Veilgarden and chatting up my admirer among the clergy, but that's so random and tends to blow my scandal through the roof.

    you can trade in Connected: the Church for a reliably large amount of candles at the Shuttered Palace. If you're not using that connection or have a good way to get it back (such as the Trade in Souls) it's a great way to get a lot of candles quickly.

    Talking to a tomb-colonist in the Grand Sanatorium as part of my Nemesis ambition:
    You walk the endless marble corridors of the Grand Sanatorium. The inmates lie still for the most part, though some hum, weep or scream. Somewhere far off, an operatic warble collapses into gurgles.

    Your footsteps echo on the cold stone floor. This place is enormous. You are cold and hungry by the time you find the Seventh Immobiles wing. There must be a hundred inmates here, bandages wrapped tightly around arms and legs. Most are still, as you'd expect, but a few thrash fruitlessly against their confinement.

    33856 is one of the still ones. She's firmly tied to her steel bed with bandages. She talks constantly, in a hoarse whisper that meanders through Latin, Arabic, Hebrew and other languages you don't recognise. Whoever she was, there's not much left of her now. You settle down and listen.

    It takes days, but you start to make sense of what she says. She's from the Elder Continent, a place of strange vitality far across the Unterzee. She has died more than a hundred times in the service of the Presbyter. She was a... it's hard to say exactly. Spy? Diplomat? Assassin? Something like that. She used to work with Feducci.

    The First City descended like seven thousand years ago. The Second was in like 1000BC. The third was in Central America. Where are the Presbyters learning their Latin and Hebrew? From the Mongols in the Fourth City?

    I always wonder about the other, non-Fallen denizens of the Neath. What do they get up to when there's not a city around the Bazaar - or is there a city around the Bazaar always? Were Khaganians partying in the streets of Fallen Karakorum thirty years ago and London just went splat on them, or what? Where does the term Presbyter come from? The Fourth City would have had to be the very first people to even know about the ancient Greeks.

    It is strongly implied, if not outright stated, that each fallen city is dropped on top of the old ones. The occupants that hadn't met some other fate would likely be smooshed. You also seem to forget that it's possible to travel between the neath and the surface. Maybe ancient greece was influenced by the elder continent.

    Fate of cities spoiler
    It is basically implied that cities are literally dropped right on top of the old one. However, these cities are generally fairly empty. From what I understand, the Bazaar has a policy of flooding the streets with lacre which basically melts the population of the city into ... Something. Starship fuel? But they always do a purge before a new city comes down. They don't get everyone, obviously, but a majority doesn't make it.

    Yeah, I know bout the lacre, I was just being coy for some reason. Apparently it keeps the stone pigs, which are how the bazaar got around in space, asleep. If they were awake, they would wreck up the place or something.

    Isn't travel between the surface and the Neath only possible thanks to the Cumenal Canal? Older cities may not have had the capability to create such a thing, and as such were cut off from the surface entirely.

    Oh yeah, I think the game actually says this a couple of times (I even seem to recall it being mentioned in Sunless Sea). But there are indications in the game that London is slowly emptying, with whole districts abandoned and falling into disrepair (I think the Revolutionary Firebrand has some stuff to say on this subject). I wonder if London is alone in this and the previous cities were bustling places right up until the moment it squashed them, or if they had long since been emptied out.

    And yeah, the Cumean Canal was cut only recently. Is it the only way to communicate with the Surface, or are there others? Does the Correspondence work on the Surface? If it does, I can imagine that maybe some mystics or sages throughout history have had some kind of contact with the cities.
