Familiar Clay Faces
The following gold storylet appears in the Bazaar Sidestreets when your Shaping Clay quality is 1.
Familiar Clay Faces
On the street, a tiny, red-faced chandler berates a pair of hulking Clay Men. Apparently they knocked over his display of chanterelle-scented candles. You've met these two before, in a tea shop. A crowd is beginning to form.

Join the mob hounding them
A little exercise is just the thing.
Leave well alone
Life is too short to involve oneself in the problems of the lumpen.
Offer them a job
Travelling around London on foot is such trouble, and the old sedan chair is enjoying a fashionable resurgence. These two look strong enough. [This will gain you a Clay Sedan chair, a highly fashionable mode of transport].

Once you have a Clay Sedan Chair, you will get the opportunity to use it from time to time.
A day out in your Clay Sedan Chair
You take a trip through the city, gently jostled by the trotting gait of your Clay bearers, George and Garfield. But where are you going?

For a little sport
It's a novel pastime, made popular by the Young Stags' Club. Your target has only their feet. You have a sedan chair and an umbrella. Can you bring them down before they reach Hood's Bridge? It is hard on your bearers, but what larks!
To make a point of treating them well
It is the obligation of an employer to treat employees with respect and kindness. You're going to teach George and Garfield reading and arithmetic, whether they like it or not.
To follow Jack's trail
A little ghoulish. But a popular London pastime nevertheless.
(A matter of luck: it could go either way.)
