Interactions[edit | edit source]

Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Pay your father's debt

"My regards to your employer. Would she be so gracious as to accept this small gift?"

A happy ending? Game note: You have forged a dynasty to be proud of. If you didn't already have a Scion, you do now. And congratulations! You are victorious!

Abandon your father

Your father stands up suddenly straighter. "To Hell with it," he says. "Enough of this nonsense. I've ducked the consequences long enough. I'm here now."

The effect of this noble speech is a little spoilt by his caroming drunkenly off the rail as he staggers down the gang-plank.

Never again

And that's the last you see of your father. You never find out what the Widow does to him. A lingering death? Exile to the tomb-colonies? Indentured service? You are free of your quest, but you have the sense of great works left undone.

Game note: Your quest has failed, but perhaps you can fill the hollow in your heart with money. You have not lost the game, but can now win only through the Life of Luxury Ambition. Go to your Lodgings to learn more.

An unexpected arrival

The Blind Bruiser taps the Widow's man on the shoulder. "Fancy us both being here at this time in this place. But I suppose it is not so very great a coincidence, this Captain 'ere being under my employer's protection, as it were. I 'ope your employer remembers our treaties and arrangements."

A happy ending? Game note: You have forged a dynasty to be proud of. If you didn't already have a Scion, you do now. And congratulations! You are victorious!

Game note: The Blind Bruiser's intervention has ensured that you need only pay 3000 Echoes. Some of the debt will be forgiven.
