The following actions are in Ladybones Road.
Tea with the Vicar
There's a note on your doorstep.

Let's find out a little more first. Want to increase your Watchful, and make the other choice easier? Play this a few times first.
Welcome him warmly
London fell, devils walk, but the laws of hospitality still apply.

[Unlocked with 1 x Shepherd's Timepiece]
The Nature of Souls
'I need you to find out whether a soul, having been removed, can be restored to a person. Living or dead. Ask around. Find authorities. I don't think we're ready for empirical work here just yet.' Find Whispered Secrets in Ladybones Road, or purchase them from the Bazaar.
[Unlocked with 100 x Whispered Secret]
'From what I hear…'
Perhaps you should be circumspect in describing your sources.

A Matter of Mortality with the Loquacious Vicar
The Loquacious Vicar was very pleased with your last research.
[Unlocked with Advising the Loquacious Vicar 3]
No experiments! The legal status of devils is complex. And you might end up torn into pieces and sprinkled on the Stolen River.
[Watchful challenge; 0-50 range]
Ask the Green-Eyed Devil
Ask the Quiet Deviless
Find out the hard way
If you hack a devil's head off and it dies, then you've proven something. If you hack its head off and it lives, then you've… not strictly proven they can't die. And someone will be terribly cross. Perhaps this isn't such a wonderful idea.
[Dangerous challenge; 0-160ish range (D11=6%, 10=6%,9=5%, 8=4%, 7=4%)]
Ask a dinner companion
Acquire a Companion: the Green-Eyed Devil
You start your research in Dante's Grill, where the souled meet the unsouled over coffee and ribs. Here you find yourself seated at the bar next to a striking devil in evening dress of unfamiliar cut. The Devil is a Watchful, Shadowy and Dreaded Companion who is not usually available.
Acquire a Companion: the Quiet Deviless
Where to begin? On the corner off Chalkery Road, a gang of masked youths is taunting a Deviless as she hurries home. She turns, and you recognise her face. The Deviless is a Watchful, Shadowy and Bizarre Companion who is not usually available.
Looking to Warmer Climes with the Loquacious Vicar
The Loquacious Vicar wants you to find what you can about the place up the river…Hell.
[Unlocked with Advising the Loquacious Vicar 4]
You know just the fellow
Call around when he's in one of his calmer moods.
[Unlocked with Acquaintance: Regretful Soldier 1]
Remnants of the war
Ask veterans, consult records, chase down leads.
[Watchful challenge, 0-60ish]
The Loquacious Vicar's Great Work
He's laid the foundations of his research. He's ready to begin. He calls on you to thank you once more for your assistance… but he seems conflicted. What advice will you give him?
[Unlocked with Advising the Loquacious Vicar 5]
Write a polemic to rouse the faithful to action
Send the devils packing! They have no place in a Christian society!
Urge empathy for the devils
Let's not be hasty. Perhaps the devils have something to offer London.
Suggest he take a more material view
The devils themselves don't matter so much as what we can trade from them.
Suggest he looks deeper into the matter
You've only scratched the surface. He should gather more information before he begins.
