Story description[edit | edit source]
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."
