The Bishop has a weakness for cards, apparently. How can you persuade him to admit it?


Introduction[edit]

After having discovered thanks to your Monkey that the Bishop of St. Fiacre's is a player of the Marvellous you'll need to convince him to admit it and to start early so you don't have to wait five years.

You'll need to find a way to get an audience with the Bishop. If you have already existing contacts with the church or happen to be particularly Persuasive you can convince him to give you an audience. Otherwise you'll need to resort to "donations" (also called bribes by those who say what they mean).

While your invited now you can hardly take the monkey with you to explain it. If you happen to have an existing relationship with the Bishop you can simply tell him why you're here otherwise you'll need to breach the subject in another way.

The Bishop wouldn't mind an earlier game; even better he knows two other players. He'll only share their identities after you pay him enough Foxfire Candle Stubs. It turns out that both the Manager of the Royal Bethlehem and the Topsy King are also players. Before you can approach either of them though you'll need the traditional stake 77 x First City Coin.

Wiki note: This ia an optional storylet for gathering the required 77 x First City Coin; if you already have those you can skip the rest of this Guide and head straight to Ambition: Heart's Desire - the Topsy King (Guide)

There are several different way's to get First City Coins in London. This section only discusses the options on the storylet Ambition: Heart's Desire - The Bishop of St Fiacre's 4.

Considering all the option my advice would be to find a few high-level people and ask them to rob the Museum. Otherwise use the The Master's Voice option.

The End (of this branch)[edit]

After you've gathered 77 x First City Coin you need to proceed to The Flit to convince the Topsy King to play. Depending on if you already have Route: The Flit you can either immediately proceed to Heart's Desire - the Topsy King or you first need to find the Route on the Ambition: Heart's Desire! (The Flit) storylet which allows you to get the Route. Playing Heart's Desire - the Topsy King will give you Ambition: Heart's Desire - the Topsy King 1, and end this branch.
