What needs work: Needs update and data to match game update
Also known as the Pickpocket's Promenade
The Crowds of Spite is an area unlocked with Shadowy 10 which can be useful for obtaining certain items at an early stage of the game. It mainly revolves around three things: Pickpocket's Trophy, which can be turned in at the end for rewards, Approaching your Destination which track how close to the end you are and which ends the Promenade once it hits 10, and Unseen which tracks how suspicious you are, and will have negative effects if it hits 0.
It will cost an action to select a route, the only difference between them are:
- The Tenterhooks sets Approaching your Destination to 7
- Smashtile Alley sets Approaching your Destination to 6
- Blythenhale sets Approaching your Destination to 5
- Strung-Up Street sets Approaching your Destination to 3
Certain harder and more rewarding opportunity cards appear at Approaching your Destination < 5
The cards you get will be the same and there will be ways to lower Approaching your Destination as you move through the crowd. Your choice isn't very important but if you are here to grind items and plan to stay longer, then Blythenhale or Strung-Up Street will always be the best option.
A Pickpocket's Promenade is usually played with opportunity cards, however there are also some storylets which can be played at any time.

When your Approaching your Destination reaches 10, The End of the Road! will autofire with the Examine your loot option. No action is needed and selecting Examine your loot will redirect you to Dispose of your Pickpocket's Trophies. You can trade Pickpocket's Trophy for items until you run out of them. Everything will reset once you select the Finished! option so don't let your Pickpocket's Trophy go to waste.
