Things to do in the Forgotten Quarter...

When your Watchful is 61-70

The Forgotten Quarter is most interesting for those who have Watchful of 60 or more.



Gathering reliable staff

You will need assistance for your archaeological expedition. A keen eye is required to pick out the good ones.

Hire a university student

The students at the department of Cryptospelunking & Transportable Antiquities are keen enough to make a name for themselves that they pay to accompany an expedition. (Failure increases Victoria's progress).
(Watchful challenge)

Hire a Clay Man

Clay Men are the preferred labourer of the well-informed archaeologist. (Failure increases Orthos' progress).
(Watchful challenge)


United against you!

You hear that Dr. Orthos and Virginia have joined forces against you. They plot to smash your equipment and drive off your staff!

The way of the rat

The cautious approach would be to post a guard over your equipment, warn your people and wait until they give up.

The way of the spider

Spy on your archaeological rivals

There are those who would seek glory in the Forgotten Quarter at your expense. A little spywork might put them behind you.
