Today your gaoler is carrying an unlit stump of candle.

Are those teethmarks in it?

| Persuade him to give up his snack.

| You might find a use for it...

|| Got it!

|| There's something unusual about this candle. You've found an Advantage! Advantages may give you a second chance when you fail a difficult Challenge - but they only work once.

Persuasive has increased to 3!

ancientrifle

It's a long, long way down...

You can make out the lights of Fallen London glimmering at the edge of the Unterzee like a handful of dropped jewels. During the 'day', when they light more candles and gaslights down there, the jewels are that much brighter. Above you in the cavern roof, the phosphorescent artificial stars they've embedded there are much closer.

Spending action points on Opportunities instead of Storylets may bring unexpected rewards, but it's never certain.

Watchful is increasing...

Escape using your Shadowy abilities

Stealth and cunning may be what this escape needs.

This is a storylet. Storylets aren't used up like Opportunities - they're always available as long as you have the right Qualities.
Playing this storylet will build up your Preparing for a Daring Escape.

 | A straightforward approach... Steal a peg from the laundry

| If you can smuggle wooden pegs from the laundry back to your cell, you can use them to dig at the mortar around the bars. But they're not ideal tools.
| A modest challenge for your Shadowy quality.

|| You got them!

|| You scratch away at the bars for a couple of hours before the peg snaps..

 | Hoard food to bribe a gaoler

| A knife would be pushing it. But if you save up enough food, you might persuade a gaoler to bring you a fork to scratch away at the mortar.
| A modest challenge for your Persuasive quality.

|| The gaoler makes the exchange, grudgingly

|| The fork is some wretchedly inferior alloy. You work away for a couple of hours until it snaps.

|| Perhaps it's the wrong angle. Perhaps you're just tired. It is exercise of a sort, anyway.
