Speak to Maybe's Rival[]

Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Increase your Veils

She'll tell you her secrets if you her yours.

Complex knowledge

She's serious once she gets talking. There's hard edges under the bluff and banter.

Game note: Spend a Secret to improve your Veils, if it is no higher than 100.
Proposition Maybe's Rival

"I've been wondering when you'd ask. I think it'll be different now. Since the Bazaar. Want to help me find out?"
Game note: She has no interest in tediously sincere lovers. Ensure your Veils is at least twenty points higher than your Hearts.

Something new

The Rival's hands are cool. Her mouth is hot. The scent of her skin, her hair, is intoxicating. In seconds, you are lost. What is happening here? She draws you, smiling, down. There is an interval of blank delight, shot through with pulses of wracking pleasure.

"Well," she says, as you recover. "I imagine we'll do that again. I'll see you later." She blows you a kiss and, grinning, departs.
Game note: Opportunities for other trysts will occur while you're at sea, substantially reducing Terror. However, if you have a lover in port, they might find out.

Answer questions about your past

You've kept your secrets long enough.
