The Pursuit of Sharpness is a Sunless Sea Story Event.

Story description[edit | edit source]

A woman gives advice to new Antheans: her eyes are cubes of salt. She speaks of going sharp as a numbness, and as an awakening; as the loss of sensation and the beginning of insight. Some Antheans use other metaphors. Clarity. Dryness. Regularity and structure.
