Theological husbandry in the Labyrinth of Tigers. Unlocked with Making Progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 16.

Catching the livestock[edit]

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.
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)
Cost:
Setting zail from London and returning with a seal takes 14.4-18 actions. Swift Zee-Clipper saves one action over Majestic Pleasure Yacht and Zubmarine, and Rusty Tramp Steamer takes 2 actions more than Yacht and Zub. Being a Monster-Hunter 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 non-Monster Hunters with a Rusty Tramp Steamer. If you happened to be in Stormbones anyway, it takes 5.4-6 actions.
  • The Rubbery Hound is FATE-locked 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.

The Formula for Empyrean Redolence[edit]

This guide is incomplete. You can help by expanding it.
What needs work: Details on advancing the storyline once you get the formula.

Should you have this FATE-locked item, some additional options will be open to you under Pulling out the Stops. You will be able to breed four new beasts with their own opportunity cards. You will also need access to Flute Street for the Rubbery Hound. Once all beasts are bred, you may breed a Bifurcated Owl by using 500 x Page of Cryptopalaeontological Notes in your lodgings.

Empyrean Redolence cards[edit]

Each of the Corresponding Ocelot, Ocular Toadbeast, Obdurate Stallion, Slavering Dream-Hound and Bifurcated Owl have an associated opportunity card. As these companions/transport are FATE-locked, no narrative text may be recorded on the wiki but mechanical effects may be recorded.

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.
