The Satisfied Magician is a potential Chief Engineer crew member; he is the successfully promoted version of the Genial Magician, resulting in improved stats and the ability to construct The Serpentine engine, a miracle of science and technology.

Background[edit | edit source]

He's a good engineer, despite that missing hand. But zailors fall silent when he passes.

Character description[edit | edit source]

"He has the quiet smile of a man who has tamped down the earth on his enemy's grave."

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

The Satisfied Magician is obtained by completing the Genial Magician storylet:

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Dispel the darkness?

  • None
Game note: Bring 1200 Echoes to the Drydock in London to continue.
Increase your Veils Game note: Spend a Secret to improve your Veils, if it is no higher than 100.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • You CAN pass on The Satisfied Magician on via the Shipmate Legacy. You will start with the promoted officer, but no value for your Learning About: The Magician quality.
    • If you pass on this officer and then lose him somehow (say, by installing him as Viceroy of your colony), you can afterward recruit another Genial Magician so long as you DID NOT talk to The Satisfied Magician and advance the storylet -- a non-zero value for Learning About: The Magician will prevent you from recruiting another one. So long as you wait until after he retires to Aestival, you can then promote the new, youthful Magician by completing the storylet as normal.
  • Constructing The Serpentine does not check or require any particular Learning About: The Magician score -- it only requires having a The Satisfied Magician and no The Serpentine. This means if you inherit The Satisfied Magician, you will be able to build it immediately, at game start, provided you have the 1200 Echoes.
    • Relatedly, if you happen to lose your Serpentine somehow (say, to a certain king), you can build another one if you wish.
