Breeding Monsters (Guide)
Late MYN Content 
Theological husbandry in the Labyrinth of Tigers. Unlocked with Making Progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 16.
Catching the livestock[edit]
 A Somnolent Hyaena may be found In the Labyrinth of Tigers, Navigating Coil 2. You need 100 Drop of Prisoner's Honey and Nightmares 5 to catch it. (By the way, there is also a useful action on the Hyaena's storylet that reduces Nightmares.)
 Cost (If we add the cost of moving to and from the 4th coil):
 5 actions, 100 Drop of Prisoner's Honey and 10 Cryptic Clues.
 You may encounter a TombLion in Disgraced exile in the TombColonies. Do make overtures when you meet this curious creature.
 Cost (Not taking into account getting out of exile):
 1 action, 1 F.F. Gebrandt's Tincture of Vigour (1 E if bought from the Bazaar)
 The Plated Seal is found at zee.
 Cost:
 Setting zail from London and returning with a seal takes 14.418 actions. Swift ZeeClipper saves one action over Majestic Pleasure Yacht and Zubmarine, and Rusty Tramp Steamer takes 2 actions more than Yacht and Zub. Being a MonsterHunter saves approximately 0.6 actions on average, thanks to Make a daring approach. 14.4 actions is for a Monster Hunter with a Clipper, 18 is the expected for nonMonster Hunters with a Rusty Tramp Steamer. If you happened to be in Stormbones anyway, it takes 5.46 actions.
 The Rubbery Hound is FATElocked and may be found in Flute Street. According to the Fate policy, only mechanical rewards regarding the Hound may be recorded on the wiki.
Ways to breed, and the results[edit]
You can work at raising one, two, or all three of the following 3 Progress qualities ( Thwarting Beastly Devils, Taming the Beast and The Hunt is On!) to 6 in order to breed your beast. The different combinations will give different results for a total of 7 possible results from any one animal! For increasing The Hunt is On! one may also use options in Wolfstack Docks. Getting a progress quality to 6 takes 7 actions with 100% on the hardest options.

Bound in Diocesan Intrigue[edit]
Once you have bred the Obdurate Stallion, you will unlock an opportunity card in London that will grant one point of Bound in Diocesan Intrigue. This in turn will unlock a series of opportunity cards in London that each grant +1 CP of the trait upon successfully completing them. Some of these have unique options with Caught Up in a Soldier's Heartbreaking Tale 8 or Cultivating an Acquaintance with His Amused Lordship 3. Upon reaching Bound in Diocesan Intrigue 5, you will unlock a final opportunity card that gives you four options to conclude the story. None have direct material rewards, but each may increase various traits, and two grant a unique trait needed to unlock the Destiny of The Instrument. See the list of rewards in Theological Husbandry.
