Hunter's Keep in darkness is a Sunless Sea Story Event.

Trigger conditions[edit | edit source]

Hunter's Keep in darkness is triggered when you dock in SS Hunter's Keep.png Hunter's Keep and have the following:

Story description[edit | edit source]

A hump of dark rock swathed in mist, like a hundred other Unterzee islands. A grand house rises on the rock: a silhouette empty of lights. The uncut grass on the lawns bends, rises, bends again in the breeze.

You smell damp stone and, faintly, blood.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Once you have done the action, you will enable two new interactions: SS maidgaz.png The Thing in the Kitchen and SS doorgaz.png The Silent House.

If you want to save SS tombcolonistgaz.png The Scarred Sister, it is recommended to have high Mirrors and Veils stats for this storylet, avoid SS maidgaz.png The Thing in the Kitchen event and go for the SS doorgaz.png The Silent House event.

Actions Requirements Effects
Go up to the house

Crunch across the gravel, up to the door. The brass of the door-knocker is tarnished. The paint is beginning to peel in the salt zee air. No one answers, but the door is unlocked...

Failed event
An empty house

The hall is dark. The parlour, too. There are signs of disturbance here and there - a smashed cup, an overturned piano- stool, scratches on the walls.

There are sounds from downstairs, from the kitchen. You push open the door, cautiously. Something clings to the ceiling: something turns yellow eyes to you and hisses.

Successful event
Words in darkness

The hall is dark. The parlour, too. There are signs of disturbance here and there - a smashed cup, an overturned piano-stool, scratches on the walls. You bend to pick up a page of paper and hold it to the light. It is an unfinished poem. You think the handwriting may be Phoebe's. The 'absent moon', the 'gnawing hunger in the heart'. The well. The sea. A great many crossings-out.

There are sounds from downstairs, from the kitchen. You push open the door, cautiously. Something clings to the ceiling: something turns yellow eyes to you and hisses.
