A particular thirst

Taking matters into your own hands

You tire of being bandied about between the Duchess and the Widow. It's time to poke your nose where it doesn't belong.
Unlocked with: in search of a Stiff Drink 1

Follow the Duchess' servant

She has employed a gangly youth from the surface. His naivety is charming, and convenient.

A visit to the Gracious Widow

Someone is planning to intercept her next shipment of brandy. Does she suspect your involvement? Or does she want your help
[Unlocked with in search of a Stiff Drink 1]

Admit your curiosity

Better to be honest than to risk the Widow finding out herself. The Duchess was interested, wasn't she? Perhaps you should mention that.

Accept an offer from the Widow.

The Widow needs a pair of keen eyes and ears. What is the Duchess' interest in the brandy? Is she planning to steal it? This will open a new storyline if you are successful.

This branch costs 3 Fate to play.

Someone’s taking an interest in your affairs!

Unlocks: in search of a Stiff Drink 2
You're walking home when you notice men climbing through your window. We'll see about that!

Make quick work of the intruders

These poor men clearly don't realize whose home they've chosen.

Greet them like a proper host

Anyone in your house is treated as a guest, even thieves. Besides: if this is about wine, you might as well have a drink.

It's time to hire a locksmith

You return to your lodgings to find your lamps turned out…
[Unlocked with in search of a Stiff Drink 3]

Ask around the Mandrake

The Bohemians thrive on secrets. The right bribe to the right person is all it will take. You can obtain a Vision of the Surface by using other Nostalgia items in your inventory.

Do the footwork yourself

You think you can get the thief to lead you to the documents - if you can just be suspicious enough.

The shipment arrives tomorrow!

Unlocks: in search of a Stiff Drink 4
You are certain the Duchess will make her move on the brandy. No one else can help her so well; no one else is as prepared to stop her. You stare at the shipping papers and mull your options.

Ignore the whole mess

All you wanted was one bloody drink.

Aid the Duchess

The Gracious Widow's brutality is as well-known as the Duchess' generosity. Altering the shipping information and returning it to the Widow will solve many problems.

Aid the Gracious Widow

It's her shipment, after all, and you never meant to get the Duchess involved. Setting an ambush for the Duchess' men will not be a problem.
