Moonlit Woods (Guide)
This page contains details about Fallen London Actions.
The Moonlit Woods is unlocked once you've elected Balmoral's Castellan in Balmoral. In order to enter the woods you will need to spend Vital Intelligence twice. If you have The Seal of St Joshua, you may alternatively use 4 x Volume of Collated Research as a substitute. This should get you 14 Time Remaining in the Woods, which should be more than enough for what you want to do.
The main two qualities for the Moonlit Woods are Moonlit and On the Scent. Moonlit allows you to access more of the woods as well as other actions elsewhere, while On the Scent can be used to gain various observations. You can then give the observations to the Marigold Menagerie Keeper for rewards. You always lose any remaining On the Scent and Time Remaining in the Woods when you leave the woods or make an observation. Moonlit carries over, but you do lose the 5 Moonlit when cashing in via Track your quarry.
