comment Why should I keep my soul, anyway?
Are the Wistful Deviless and the Empire of Hands the only two places to sell it? I'm also worried about missing out on something even better.

That's precisely why I'm tempted to do it.

I can't answer that question, I'm afraid. I haven't created a new captain since the box was introduced, though I did give the box to a zee-captain.

comment Please explain what's wrong with cannibalism
I've played Fallen London, and more-or-less finished the current content; I suppose I should have mentioned that. But even there, Unaccountably Peckish doesn't cause any actual problems unless you deliberately chase other bad choices; there isn't even a Place of Menace for it. It just sounds really bad, and the game's text makes it seem unspeakable, plus it'll cost you a few actions and resources to reduce it. The Foreign Office just makes it sound worse - but again, no mechanical penalties.

revised How can I get started making money?
Supplies now cost 20 in Fallen London, not 10. Makes it slightly less profitable, but it's still a good idea.

comment How much coal does a Hobbyist Steam Engine use for a full tank of water?
you can give "how to do this" as an answer, but the trouble is that Arquade is trying to be a repository of knowledge, not just a bunch of forum threads where individual askers get answers. If every single person who visits this question has to go off and do their own research based on your answer, then this isn't a great answer and won't collect much/any upvotes. Now, it's a really great answer that everyone can learn from; thanks for researching and editing! +1

comment How do I deal with Gavelkind inheritance?
Unfortunately, you can't disinherit sons via bishoprics anymore.

Disinheriting via bishoprics is, apparently, no longer available.

This would work better as a comment than as an answer, since you're talking about how to reach the answer rather than giving an answer. (I realize it's a bit long for a comment, but I think you can make it fit.) Welcome to Arquade!

comment How to deal with small worlds in tormented space?
You might buy a little time with an early Terp creating a wall to hide behind, but I'll admit that's a fairly energy-expensive way to do it, and given the cost it's only going to be useful if the terrain is already somewhat in your favor. (Once you have the wall, Mortars become the most energy-efficient way to defend.) I haven't gotten to S200_180 yet, so I can't give advice specific to that world.
