From: The Soul and the Number

The Starveling Cat is yowling and hissing about laudanum tonight, and the trouble you'll put it through to find a decent spirifer.

Game Instructions: Don't do this. This is even less wise than it sounds.

Unlocked with 1 x Starveling Cat, 5 x F.F. Gebrandt's Superior Laudanum, 1-3 x Stain on Your Soul

Challenge information

A matter of luck: It could go either way (success chance: 50%)


A soul half empty

The laudanum takes you to another place, a place that is nowhere. You hear the cat's hiss. You see a man with a brass fork. […]

[…] Your soul is back again. It must be getting threadbare and grubby. […] You will become the number.

Success Instructions: Can you really do this to yourself seven times? Stop now, for pity's sake!


A voice heard in a dream

"No! You damnable beast, I will not! A man's got to draw the line somewhere, and I won't! You hear me? I won't!" Then there is a scream and a silence broken only by the laughter of a hat.
