THE KING OF SHADOWS
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

   Salt. It is a precious rare thing, you see. A compound of the chemicals Sodium and Chloride, used most often in food as a seasoning or a preservative. Slaves die for it, deep in the mines. Slaves die without it, sweating as they labored in vain for a life they would never have...

   The peasants were finally even being conscripted to their doom, mining the coveted mineral salt, beneath the club of Ramun, our slavedriver. They are there now, far below - men; women; children; even strong horses where they are needed. Their sacrifice allows the upper-class of the town to live like kings just a little bit longer. Their sacrifice is destroying the town itself. And I, as a secretary to the once honorable Constable Hareck - I, a man of common birth in an uncommon position - see both sides of the coin. Salt holds the heart of the town... and the salt and the heart and the town are all dying, to line the pockets of the unscrupulous...

   Salt will one day hold the heart of the world, then.

   I must admit that what I pen here is likely the product of a compromised mind... for, as I have watched my fellow townsfolk, friends, and all I loved, fall upon the great altar of this God Hareck calls Salt... I have chosen the coward's way, damn me. I knew they would throw me down below just as soon as the others, had I rebelled against their tyranny. And in return I am quite certain my conscience has driven me mad for it, for I am being visited by a most disturbing apparition...

   Corvus Corax; the common raven. It watches me - even now - from its perch, on the bust of Pallas Athena, on the cornice above the door. It seldom moves, except to stretch its wings, and cock its head to look at me with its black eyes. An old specimen of its kind, the feathers about its head are thinning - and someone seems to have thought fit, at some point during it's many years, to teach the forlorn creature the mimicry of seemingly one word only...

   "Nevermore." It says the word, the same as it has uncountable times.

   I do not sleep anymore. I do not remember when I last ate. I attend to the legal documents of the town and the mines. I read. I try to avoid the gleaming eyes of that damned bird, yet I find myself contemplating it, in spite of myself...

   And I dream. Awake, I dream madness. Of a great and ancient stone gateway to a deeper tunnel beneath the town, leading straight down into the earth like a vast well. Faces are carved into that black stone... of grimaces of pain and screams of anguish... I dream...

   The slaves... deep they delve, into the very heart of the earth itself. Here the salt is like red sand, and still they dig. The old tavernkeeper is relentless. He speaks no more and eats no more and sleeps no more. Others soon join him. They draw ever closer to that accursed portal...

   A miner catches his shroud on his axe, and it is torn away, revealing but a dried skeleton... oh horror... some of the miners are dead! They blunt their tools in their fervor, digging at an uncanny pace, ignorant to the parched croaking screams of the other terrified slaves...

   The living try to flee.

   And the dead finally strike the salt within that ring of stone. There is a deafening roar like thunder, and... oh horror upon horror... it is as if a great wound was opened up.

   Blood. A veritable river of blood rushes forth. It rushes up. It fills the tunnel...

   The living try to flee!

   The mines shake! The tremors become a deep, hollow laughter... oh horror of horrors... something is coming through! Something hideous thrusts itself up through that hole, like some unspeakable act of defilement!

   THE LIVING TRY TO FLEE!!

   BUT THE DEAD FIND THEM IN THE BLOOD!!

   OH UNSPEAKABLE HORRORS!!

   The hardness of the top of my desk, digging into my elbows... the softness of my armchair cushioning my thighs... blank parchment...

   The shadow of the raven. It's eyes sparkle, as my eyes sparkle. I meet its gaze. It knows what I saw. Malevolence has a name.

   "Nevermore."

   Weeping. This will never end. This thought comes unbidden. It is not my own.

   Oh, Annabel. They took you too. And I did nothing. I sold my very soul that day. Gods and my heart be damned, I sold yours too...

   The vacancy of the pages before me match my gaze as I stare at them. The abyssal regard of a man who is less than a man... this will never end...

   Curse this town of shadows of men. And I, a King among them. Oh, Annabel...

   The great quill lies before me, next to a generous inkwell.

   I must write it all down...

   "Nevermore."

   But I must!

   "Nevermore."

   I AM THE KING OF SHADOWS!!

**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
~ I7 ~ NIGHTMARES
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

* Nightmares can occur randomly on Permadeath, or while Madness characters are waiting in a city, at a castle, or via camp menu.
* Nightmares occur while waiting at night for most Madness characters.
* Nightmares occur during the day while waiting, for Vampire, Werewolf and Ghoul characters with Madness.
* Ghost, Lich, and Death Itself characters do not sleep, and therefore have no nightmares, even with Madness.

* Alternately, Antihero characters can use the Nightmare Cube from the Museum (and later on, via their inventory), by entering the following sequence of numbers, which is the first thirteen digits of the square root of 2, a radical number:
~ 1.414213562373 (ignore the decimal point).
* On the cube, This translates to:
~ Dot, Square, Dot, Square, Cross, Dot, Triangle, Star, Pentacle, Cross, Triangle, Matrix, Triangle.

* You will begin in a random location withinin the Nightmare Realm, a land of horrors, filled with a mist that seems to be blood...
* Using an Evil Eye or the Eye of Izanagi while experiencing a Nightmare will blind you with thicker red fog. You have been warned.
* A Boogeyman will spawn nearby and try to attack. This can be almost any character in the game.
* This can be used as another form of Divination in the game - perhaps the Boogeyman represents the character's current anxieties?
* Permadeath is possible.
* The Nightmare ends when either the Boogeyman or the Player character are defeated. There is no other escape.


**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
~ I8 ~ THE FAIRE
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

* The Faire happens as a dream sequence that occurs rarely when a Nightmare would ordinarily occur, for Madness characters, or on Permadeath.
* Alternatively, Fairy characters who have become Ghosts can enter The Faire via the Underworld Gate in Veidar whenever they want. This costs one Ghostwood per visit.

* The first character you must talk to is at the white circle just to your right as you enter The Faire:
~ 0 ~ Thyself (Black Robe and Assassin Mask)

* He gives you your first trade good, and tells you what trade good one of the final two characters want - it will not be the same good he gave you, so you will have to make at least one trade.

* These two characters are up on the hill at the north end, the king and queen of The Faire - you will need to remember which one wants which trade good:
~ 8 ~ The Queen Of Hearts (Persephone)
~ 9 ~ Old King Cole (Hades)

* Green fog slowly rolls in, from the moment you arrive, and gets thicker and thicker as time passes, signifying the dream fading away.
* You have a total of about 10 minutes until you wake up and automatically leave the faire.
* Every module music track is played in a row as well - when you hear Hell's Bells (Madness characters may already be hearing this) you have about 30 seconds left.

* There are seven characters around The Faire - all with lit locations - each wants certain trade goods, and will trade other items for them, randomly (as displayed at their booths). Listed below are each character, by number, and what that character has and wants (and the numbers relating to the characters you trade them to, or from):
~ 1 The Big Bad Wolf (Wendigo Butcher; Butcher outfit and Werewolf Head)
Has: Blood(2,4,5,6,7), Bones(2), Flesh(4), Dried Meat(3)
Needs: Human Corpse(5), Salt(3), Tools(3), Bread of the Dead(2), Milk(6), Mumiyo(4), Oil(7)

Needs: Wheat(6), Salt(3), Bones(1), Milk(6), Blood(1), Honey(5), Crocuses(6), Wine(4), Oil(7)

Needs: Blood(1), Bread of the Dead(2), Tools(3), Bloodwine(4), Human Corpse(5), Crocuses(6)

* There are eight other characters at The Faire you should probably... just not talk to. They are all unseelie fairies with no human morals:
~ Hansel and Gretel (Brollachans)
Effect: Hansel steals Milk if you have it. Gretel steals Bread if you have it.
~ Tweedledum and Tweedledee (Homunculi)
Effect: Both talk in circles 'til you give them 420 denars.
~ Jabberwock and Bandersnatch (Shadow Warriors)
Effect: Each gives a warning about the other, and scares the player awake!
~ Truth and Lies (Royal Guards)
Effect: Truth always tells the truth and Lies always lies, about which of the royalty want to see you.

* There is also another character that will eat any Iron in your inventory; other characters will snub you if you carry Iron, the Blood Iron Bastard Sword, or the Slayer's Hand-held Crossbow to The Faire.
~ Rust (Tartarus, The Black Pit)

* Items already in your inventory DO count.
* Speaking to the king or queen without the correct trade good is considered taboo and you will be removed from the Faire forever.
* Speaking to the king or queen when you should speak to the other of the two, even if you have the correct trade good, is considered taboo and you will be removed from the Faire forever.
* Speaking to the king or queen after delivering the proper trade good, and being told to speak to Thyself again, is considered taboo and you will be removed from the Faire forever.
* If you are a Female character and deliver the correct good to The Queen of Hearts, you will receive Persephone's Heavenly Raiment as a special reward from her, once only.
* If you deliver the correct good to the the correct ruler of The Faire, you will be told to go back to Thyself.
* The fog keeps rolling in at this point - if you don't finish speaking with Thyself before your time is up you will NOT receive your reward.
* When you finally speak with Thyself again, he gives you a Fairy Sunstone, which will allow you to return to The Faire, once, whenever you want.


**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
~ I9 ~ THE BLACK DEATH
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

* The Black Death, or "bubonic plague" is a horrific and deadly disease, said to be a curse from the gods, spread by the fleas that infest Plague Rats.

* The plague has not found its way to Calradia yet, except...
~ Rats have invaded the food stores in one small village, known as Dugan, far to the southeast. The villagers are even showing signs of infection...
~ You can also acquire The Black Death, or begin the game with it, and cure it, becoming a Ghoul. This will enable you to summon Plague rats in exchange for Flesh.
~ There is also a Ghoul in the Dungeon of Chalbek castle whom Troubadour characters, who are also Antiheroes, can win Pegasus, Chrysaor and The Mask of the Rat King from. If you then play Hymn to Mephistopheles with Pegasus, for money at a town, with Chrysaor also in your inventory or equipped, you have a rare random chance of summoning Plague Rats each turn. Wearing the Mask of the Rat King as well, while playing music in a Town with Pegasus and Chrysaor, also has a random chance of turning a fully human character into a Ghoul.

* Once you have Plague Rats in your party you will be able to choose "Infestation" on the main menu of towns and castles. This will allow you to transfer Plague Rats to the garrison of that city.
* Every day, there will be a random check for every garrison/party, to see if there are Plague Rats.
* There will be a random chance each check that any human troop in that Party will be replaced by Infected Men/Women
* There will be the same chance of infection for the player character, if they are not a Ghost, Vampire, Werewolf, Lich, Ghoul, Death Itself.
* A Plaguedoctor's Filter will also prevent infection, if worn diligently in the presence of Plage Rats.

* If you do become infected with The Black Death you will experience reputation losses due to entering town castle, center, tavern or store scenes, if you have plague of progress level 4 or higher (mentions nausea), or if you are a Ghoul, unless you:
~ Wear Plague Wraps, Plaguedoctor's Filter, or Alchemist's Riposte to negate plague fear penalties.
~ Keep Crocuses in your inventory to negate Ghoul smell penalties.

* There will also be a random chance each check that each Infected Man/Woman in each garrison/arty dies of the Plague, and is removed.
* Each time an Infected Man/Woman dies of the Plague, there will be one Plague Rats added to that garrison/party.
* Once there are Plague Rats in a garrison at a town or castle you will be able to choose "Rat Hunt" from the main menu to add them to your party over time. They may build up quicker than you can remove them!
* Ghouls automatically succeed each turn of the Rat Hunt.


**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
~ I10 ~ PLAGUE CURES
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

* The True Apothecary can be found in the Cellar of The Old Four Ways Inn. He offers to cure any plagues you may suffer from.
* You must have the Alchemist's Thrust to gain entrance to the Cellar.

* There are three plagues which are said to be divine curses:
~ Solar Porphyria (Vampires)
~ Lunar Lycanthropy (Werewolves)
~ The Black Death is listed under Terran Vomicarenatus... which is actually the cure, and simultaneously, one of two ways of becoming a Ghoul (and the technical term for the condition).

* You will be given the Malleus Maleficarum, and told to use its gathering section to retrieve a curative herb from near one of three castles, based on the disease in need of curing. You will need to be within a short distance of each:
~ Solar Porphyria = Rhadogir Garlic from Rhadogir castle.
~ Lunar Lycanthropy = Tehlrog Aconite from Tehlrog Castle.
~ The Black Death = Chalbek Mullein from Chalbek Castle.

* When you are a Vampire or a Werewolf and ask for a cure, the True Apothecary will tell you to retrieve a Slayer's Amulet as well - a Slayer will give you one free if you talk to them on the world map. When you bring the amulet back, the True Apothecary will bind it to you as further penance, causing your character to react very strongly as if Salt (for Vampires) or Silver (for Werewolves) were near, until the cure is obtained.

* He also tells you to carry Wax - there is a random chance of finding Mandrake when you gather herbs, and you will die instantly unless you have Wax in your inventory.
* When you (hopefully) survive any Mandrake encounters, and have the herb, you will need to return to the True Apothecary.
* He will cure you when you speak to him with the herb, reversing previous stat bonuses and negatives from the affliction (including salt or silver allergies), or in the case of The Black Death, just adding bonuses (and the need to carry Crocuses around, and the ability to summon rats...) and taking away the physical deterioration of the plague.


**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
~ I11 ~ PROPHECY CHARACTERS
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

* Characters who begin the game with "A prophecy" as a creation choice, and become Poseidon's Avatar, Antiheroes or raise the Necropolis, will face the three Fates, or Moirai.
* Requirements, titles and rewards are as follows, superceding each other from the top of the list, to the bottom.
* After receiving your reward, the three Moirai will join the ranks of the Evil faction.

~ Death Itself and Antihero ~ Grey Lizard: +2 Intelligence.
~ Death Itself not Antihero ~ Blue Scorpion: Next horse sacrificed will make the Kraken appear.
~ Ghost and Antihero ~ White Owl: Next horse sacrificed will make the Kraken appear, until the player brings four Coursers to Fearichen.
~ Ghost not Antihero ~ Red Piranha: Random chance of permadeath when waiting on the main map, via Camp menu.
~ Not Ghost or Death Itself ~ Black Cat: Escape permadeath 9 times.

~ II10 ~ CORPSEHUSBANDRY RECIPES
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

~ As Ishtar's third task, she will teach you the secrets of Corpsehusbandry, a method by which you may both consecrate and desecrate the corpse of a Slave Girl, turning her into a powerful Necromantic artifact called a Corpsewife.
~ Over time, your Corpsewife will begin to rot, progressing eventually through Autolysis, Bloat, Active Decay, Skeletonization, and finally Liquification. This process naturally takes thirteen days.
~ The rituals must be completed in order, except the very first ritual, which may be completed at any stage before the last, and doubles the days left on the Corpsewife at the time it is completed.
~ Each of the other rituals will preserve your Corpsewife one day longer, and raise your Intelligence and lower your Charisma by one point each.
~ If the three rituals of a stage are not completed by the time the body rots to the next stage, they will not be able to be completed unless a new Corpsewife is created.
~ The last ritual of the fourth stage finally ends the rotting process.
-Any-
*13   The Willing Body (Torso): Must retrieve Wood, Iron, Wool and Velvet, to create a coffin to keep your Corpsewife in. Doubles Corpsedecay points. Other rituals add 1 to Corpsedecay points.
-Autolysis-
*12   The Humble Image (Head): Must retrieve a Straightrazor, to cut your Corpsewife's hair and nails, and Silver to make a locket with the word "Always" on it, to seal a bit of her hair and nails inside, to wear around your neck.
11   The Welcoming Embrace (Hands): Must retrieve Gold, to make a ring to put on her left middle finger, and Leather Gloves to hold your Corpsewife's severed left ring finger, which you will keep in your right pocket.
10   The Silent Step (Feet): Must retrieve Woolen Hose for your Corpsewife to wear on her feet, and Blue Hose to hold your Corpsewife's severed right big toe, which you will keep in your left pocket.
-Bloat-
*09   The Vigilant Watch (Eyes): Must retrieve a Knife, and Crystal to replace your Corpsewife's decaying eyes after you cut them out, and Linen to make a sash to wear, to sew her severed eyelids onto. Carried at the right shoulder.
08   The Enduring Composure (Entrails): Must retrieve Ale, Flour and Clay to create a cement, to fill and solidify your Corpsewife's stomach and entrails. You keep a small amount of the mixture, and sculpt it into a buckle for your belt, with the word "Never" on it.
07   The Resilient Spirit (Liver): Must retrieve Furs, to make a wineskin to replace your Corpsewife's liver, and Salt, to tan her liver to make a wineskin for yourself - and Wine to fill them both. Carried at the left shoulder.
-Active Decay-
06   The Prudent Mind (Brain): Must retrieve 1000 Denars to fill your Corpsewife's skull, as her brain decays, 1 Denar of which you will keep in your chest pocket - and then you will seal her ears with Wax. The coin will always be used for coin flips, without the need for at least 1 denar.
05   The Nourishing Kiss (Blood): Must retrieve Pottery, to drain your Corpsewife's blood into, and Diamonds to swallow, as you drink her long-dead ichor and then vomit, the jewel will become lodged in your stomach lining, making you feel nauseous until the next ritual is completed.
*04   The Faithful Soul (Heart): Must retrieve a Dagger and Oil, to heat the blade to red hot, and thrust it through your Corpsewife's rotten heart, cooking it instantly, and preserving it within her chest. This leaves a scar from the burn, on your left hand.
-Skeletonization-
03   The Withered Shape (Flesh): Must retrieve a Butchering Knife, to carve the salvageable flesh from your Corpsewife, and eat it, trying desperately not to vomit. This leaves a scar from a cut, on your right wrist, and you will feel nauseous until the next ritual is completed.
*02   The Revealed Scars (Skin): Must retrieve Silk, to create a dress to wrap your Corpsewife in, to preserve her skin, and everything it contains, as much as possible. You make a wrap for your left wrist from a bit of the leftover silk.
01   The Broken Pieces (Bones): Must retrieve Tools, to affix your Corpsewife's skeleton in place with metal wire, and metal rods, so that minor movements do not cause further decay. The Corpsewife will be fully preserved in this final state, and cease to decay any further. You craft a brace for your left wrist from the leftover wire and rods.
-Liquification-
00   The Corpsewife is useless, and is thrown out, and you must start over again, repeating all rituals from the beginning, and losing all previous progress.
(*) = These rituals change the appearance of the Corpsewife slightly.

~ V1 ~ RESPITE AND NEPENTHE
**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

* Respite and Nepenthe are normal troops created via a customizable recipe.
* Only one of them can be created during any given game.
* They are gender-specific. Male characters can only summon Nepenthe, and female characters can only summon Respite.
* After finding Annabel's Ring in Fisdnar, if you ask The Raven about it, he will respond with a riddle. It refers to adding the following customizable recipe ingredients to the Cup of Hebe, along with Annabel's Ring, to summon your perfect demon lover...

"Here lies the body of Annabel Lee
No living woman was fairer than she
And no love ever loved was greater than
The love loved by she and her beloved man..."

* The prelude...

"If perfect love you also seek
Into her sepulchre then peek
A ruby from a foreign land
Bound with gold and coral band"
"A little wine, and some bread,
And candlelight, and a soft bed
Is quite the perfect way to say
I love you more each passing day..."

* Which means, start with:
~Annabel's Ring+Wine+Bread+Candles+Linen...

"And a heart, a diamond, a club, or a spade
Are the gambles on which the game is made
And when the chips are down, often decide
Where the winning hand abides..."

* Which means, add one of the following if desired:
+ (optional; pick one)
~ Club (Str+2,Agi+1,Int-2,Cha-1; Submissive: Almost never tumults when upset, but demands every day)...

~ Heart (Str-1,Agi-2,Int+1,Cha+2; Passionate: Tumults twice as often when upset, but demands only every four days)...

"While something old, something new,
Something borrowed, or something blue
Will temper dispositions
For times of hard transition..."

*Which means, add one of the following if desired, as well:
+ (optional; pick one)
~ The Cask of Amontillado (Str+1, Furious Alcoholic: Demands Ale or Wine 50% of the time; Bloodwine can be given instead for an eventual bonus)...
~ The Telltale Heart (Agi+1, Murderous Fiend: Demands living Horse sacrifices 50% of the time; a living Prisoner can be given instead for an eventual bonus)...

~ The Gold Bug (Cha+1; Covetous Hoarder: Demands Diamonds or Gold 50% of the time; a Philosopher Stone can be given instead for an eventual bonus)...

(Female characters only)
"Snakes, and snails, and puppy dog tails
Are how all bad boys are made
Mayhaps come Respite
Poured forth from they who lent thee
Nevermore will speak this riddle
Of this tomb above the waves..."

* And finally add:
~ Male: Barbed Arrows (Snakes) and Scale Gauntlets (Snails), and Werewolf Blood (Puppydog Tails) = Respite

(Male characters only)
"Sugar, and spice, and everything nice
Are what every bad girl craves
Mayhaps come Nepenthe
Poured forth from they who lent thee
Nevermore will speak this riddle
Of this tomb above the waves..."

~ Path of the Hand:
 Temperance = They forgive you, or otherwise no path change.

* The first time your lover is offended, a random choice is made between Tumults on a randomly chosen path, among Diamonds, Spades and Clubs. Paths are as follows:
~ Path of Diamonds:

 Envy = You both grow discontent, dreaming of something better. No other effects other than going randomly to Clubs or Spades. How boring.
 Gluttony = You are separated in battle. Love troop is removed from the party and randomply spawned on the world map. If found before next check, to Spades. Otherwise, to Hearts.
~ Path of Spades:
 Delusion = You go slightly insane, until you can find the cure. Gains audible hallucinations (no change for Madness characters, unless previously cured). Positive results on a follow up round of gifts will cure them (no change for Madness characters). An ECT may also cure them. Go randomly to Diamonds or Clubs.

 Pride = She/he suffers a breakdown and kicks you out. If crocuses or blood pudding are given by next check, then to Diamonds. Otherwise, to Spades.
 Wrath = She/he cheats on you and you try to kill her lover. Spawns Casanova/Harlot party nearby. If they are killed before next check, to Hearts. Otherwise, to Spades.
~ Path of Hearts:
 The Rise = Love endures beyond all hope. Randomly to Diamonds, Spades or Clubs.
 The Fall = You permanently lose her/him. -3 to all Attributes. The End.

* If Respite/Nepenthe dies or is lost, your character will never love again. Keep them alive at all costs!
