The Labyrinth Of Tigers

Welcome to the Fourth Coil

This coil is not open to the public. There aren't many tigers here, either.

From here you can to The Labyrinth of Tigers Coil 3 or go on to learn what mysteries are here.

Before coming here, you will receive a golden opportunity card…

envelope.png

Thump!

What is someone doing, sending you lead postcards?

Thump!

That's a heavy thump on your doormat. Is someone sending you lead postcards?
unlocked with making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 13, Dangerous 110

The fist and crook

The extra weight is the seal on the envelope. It's a huge, terribly old-fashioned thing. The imprint in the wax is of an iron gauntlet holding a shepherd's crook. That's the seal of the Bishop of Southwark.
Connected: The Church Challenge, almost impossible at 10, straightforward < 23

Into the Fourth Coil

The Fourth Coil isn't open to the public…The tigers leave the place alone, for the most part.
unlocked with making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 14, in the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 4

Turn left at the nun

The tunnels of the Fourth Coil are lined with sheds, barns and breeding pens. Animal husbandry experts rub shoulders with clergymen. A nun discusses serpent feed with a veterinarian. That old chapel must be the Bishop's base here.

Scout out the Fourth Coil

Perhaps you should see what you're getting into first.
unlocked with Sneak-Thief's Mask 1; relocked with 'making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers' 15
Shadowy challenge, straightforward at 125

'Pardon, your Grace?'

Did you hear that right?…Does the Bishop of Southwark really want to wrestle you?
unlocked with making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 15, in the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 4

You did hear that right

The Bishop wants to wrestle you, right now, in front of the fireplace. To prove your worth and piety. He pulls off his cassock and drops into a fighting crouch.
Dangerous challenge, straightforward at 120

Ask the Bishop about Preparing Monsters to Breed

Let's hope that this business is not too unsavoury…
unlocked with making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 16, in the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 4

The Bishop is adamant

'Come and talk to me when you have a monster. No point wasting our breath before then.'
This choice is locked for now.
To unlock, you need In the Company of Monsters 1.

Ask the Bishop about Catching Monsters

Go to the Bishop's study…You'll just have to hope he's not in a wrestling mood.
unlocked with making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 16, in the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 4

Sit down and wait for the Bishop to speak

The Bishop pours each of you a half-pint of sherry and starts talking.

Leaving the Fourth Coil

You are in the fourth coil of the Labyrinth…Where do you want to go next?
unlocked with making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 14, in the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 4

Return to the Third Coil

It's easy when you know the way.

The fifth coil is closed

The fifth coil is currently closed for refurbishment. And certainly not because befanged monstrosities are loose and cocking their vile snooks at respectable folk.
This choice is locked for now.
To unlock, you need making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 20.

Tea with the Bishop

Follow the half-smiling nun to the Bishop of Southwark's Study…[Among other things, you can remind yourself of what the Bishop needs here.]
unlocked with making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 16, in the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 4

'Remind me, your Grace…'

Ask the Bishop to remind you about how one should breed a beast to hunt devils.

Aren't your eyes a little yellow for a nun?

Have a little chat with hell's agent here.
Connected: Hell challenge, high-risk at 17

A rematch

The Bishop is always ready to rip off his cassock and wrestle.
Dangerous challenge, straightforward at 125


All the following storylets but the last are unlocked with In the Company of Monsters…


fungustower.png

Carnivorous Treats

According to the Bishop, several varieties of dangerous toadstool can help with animal breeding. Best not to think too hard about the details. [Raise your Hunt is On! quality to 6 to gather a useful quantity of fungus.]

unlocked with making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 16, in the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 4, In the Company of Monsters 1

Collect the cap of a fungus-column

These two-ton monstrosities infest the fecund wilderness at the edge of the Fourth Coil. And they would rather hang on to their caps.
Dangerous challenge straightforward at 117

Brave the chytrid wood

The fungus in the forest is essentially harmless. The unusually huge sorrow-spiders that nest in the trees are not.
Dangerous challenge straightforward at 120

Scrape some vile slime off a fungus-ridden slug

Giant slugs live on the edge of the chytrid woods. They say that the fungus around here gets into their tiny brains and makes them dance on moonless nights.
Dangerous challenge straightforward at 125

Tame your… Thing

Sparing the rod will spoil the slavering beast. Or perhaps there is a more kindly approach. [Raise your Taming the Beast quality to 6 to proceed.]
unlocked with making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 16, in the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 4, In the Company of Monsters 1

Hit it with a stick

Explain your requirements to the beast. And then hit it with a stick until it behaves. Simple.
Dangerous challenge straightforward at 117

Whispering at Monsters

Use your cryptozoological knowledge to instruct your creature in its own language.
Watchful challenge, straightforward at 120

Be kind

These creatures aren't easy to come by. One should treat them with kindness.
Dangerous challenge straightforward at 125

devil.png

Casting Out Devils

They cannot be allowed to taint the… well, whatever's going on down here. [Raise your Thwarting Beastly Devils quality to 6 to see them off.]
unlocked with In the Company of Monsters 1, making progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 16, in the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 4

Make an example of a devil

There are few devils openly walking the Fourth Coil. Those that do are often in the company of tigers. That will not save them.
Dangerous challenge straightforward at 117

Roust out infernal impersonators

The problem isn't actually finding the devils disguised in habits and cassocks. The problem is chasing them off with a firearm in front of witnesses.
Dangerous challenge straightforward at 120

Thump every devil you see in the Fourth Coil

No prisoners! For God and the Bishop!
Dangerous challenge straightforward at 125

The Hound of Heaven

The Bishop may not like serpents, but this creature can sniff out devils like a truffle-pig in the forest.

Hand over your hou… snake

The Bishop is sure to be pleased. Assuming he can overcome his irrational dislike of serpents.
