The Blind Helmsman is a Wolfstack institution: a centuries-old pub held together by a crust of fry-smoke and the nautical mementos nailed to the walls.

When you enter, the Salt-Scarred Navigator is already in full flow. "...a city deep in the Interior. Nidah, it's called. There, they decide the span of every life..."

Coax tales of immortality from him

"Nidah's walls are basalt, but within them it's as close to paradise as man can make. A thousand fountains! The streets, paved with gem-slabs! And the air: sweet with honeysuckle and orange-groves..." How does he know? Has he been there?

Straight from the source

One bottle, and he loosens his waistcoat. A second, and he loosens his tongue. "No, I never been to Nidah. Not in the flesh, at least." He leans close. "But I once tasted red honey, and the memories of a man who had. I only saw fragments: an army at the walls, a breach, a rallying cry: 'Liberty, equality, eternity.'"

A third bottle. Where could you taste these memories for yourself? "Go to the Isle of Cats. Talk to the Cat's Chiefest Claw. Ask about the Far-Travelled Notary. But if you're wise, you'll do like me: use what you learn to get free drinks. Immortality's for gods and monsters."
