A Note in the Gruel

Obtained in New Newgate Prison (Again):


A gift!

Location: Your Lodgings
Unlocks: the Protégé of a Mysterious Benefactor 1
When you were… indisposed, a mysterious benefactor promised you a gift. And now, a package has been delivered. Somehow, they knew what you'd find most useful. What is it?

Option 1: Brass Knuckles

For the removal of life's little difficulties. [This is the Dangerous choice.]

Option 2: A huge supply of mint humbugs

A useful tool of introduction. [This is the Persuasive choice.]

Option 3: A bowler hat

Bowler hats are very common. One could blend inconspicuously into a crowd when wearing this. [This is the Shadowy choice.]

Option 4: A pair of extremely shiny shoes

What secrets could you see reflected? Many things are hidden close to the ground. [This is the Watchful choice.]
