Not his first time

You obtain the services of a Clay Man [...] he tells of what happened to a comrade of his in [...] the Forgotten Quarter. It seems that his friend was looking at an odd carved stone and was... unmade. [...] you try not to think about it too much.


No clay today

There are no Clay Men available at the moment. You try the spray-lashed docks, the shadowy markets of Spite and the other places where they congregate to find work, but they are all empty. Who is hiring them all?
