Sunless Skies Game Description:

Sunless Skies is a Gothic Horror roleplay game with a focus on exploration and exquisite storytelling.
Command a flying steam locomotive

The only thing between you and the waste-winds, storms and cosmic lightning is your engine. Tend and upgrade it, buy weaponry and exotic equipment, and keep her hull in good shape to hold the hostile Heavens at bay.
Explore a unique and dangerous universe

You play the captain of a locomotive, a steam engine fitted for off-rail travel: sailing the stars, leading your crew into trouble and out of their minds. Smuggle souls, barter for crates of time, stop for cricket and a cup of tea.

Discover more of the deep, dark and marvelous Fallen London Universe, as seen in our previous game, SUNLESS SEA. (You can play either game first, the stories coexist happily.)

Fight her majesty's agents, pirates and abominations of the skies

Face ships of differing factions and unknowable beasts each with different attacks and agendas.
Survive starvation, madness and terror.

Manage your crew’s condition and your captain’s nightmares. Balance fuel and supplies against your desire for new horizons, knowledge or riches. Struggle with sights never meant for human eyes. How will the dark change you?
Recruit officers on your adventures

Populate your ship with unique, upgradeable officers, each with their own quest to fulfill: an incautious driver, an incognito princess, a repentant devil, and - dear god! - your Aunt?! How did she get out here?

Discover your captain’s past through narrative levelling

Reveal your captain’s past deeds as facets of their personality as you progress. Most captains will perish, but their actions will leave a mark on the world for their descendants - for better or worse. Pass on some effects, and return anew to deal with events that your previous captain put into motion.

THE WORLD

The High Wilderness is a wondrous vision of space: shifting, wind-swept ruins where the laws of the cosmos are not as we imagined.

The stars are alive. They are the Judgments: vast intelligences that govern all things. But they are dying. One by one, something is snuffing them out, leaving their thrones empty.

Unfettered by trivial things like gravity, the Victorian Empire have pushed their tendrils into this new world, and their ambition is savage. They have built a new Sun. The Empress Victoria reigns from the Throne of Hours, which gives her control over time.

Your Captain and crew must carve out a life between the stars. Will you support her majesty and the establishment, or the working class rebels who yearn for freedom from the Workworlds?

FEATURES

Multiple, intertwining stories with a depth and richness unlike anything else in games, inspired by CS Lewis, Jules Verne, Lovecraft and HG Wells

Lush, hand-drawn 2d art to match

Four giant regions to explore: celestial wilderness, impossible industrial empire, pagan midnight expanse, and the mysterious Blue Kingdom.

A choice of play styles: build a lineage of captains as each dies, or reload your most recent captain and continue

Key remapping and full controller support

Sunless Sea Review

Sunless Sea gives you a wonderful world to explore and packs it with memorable written vignettes.

Sunless Sea Legacies: The Boke of Sharps - Start with +25 Iron

Sunless Sea Playlist:

Legacy items are items that you carry over between deaths, and give you a permanent stat bonus. The Boke of Sharps gives you +25 Iron permanently, lettings you start with 50.

But careful! Don't pick the Veteran background, because you'll waste your skill points.

Sunless Sea - Engines: The Serpentine & The Genial Magician + Prudent/Urbane/Satisfied Magician

Playlist:

So, how to get the Serpentine Engine in Sunless Sea. First up, you'll need to recruit the Genial Magician in London, then follow his Storylet to promote him to the Satisfied Magician.

For this, you're going to need around 2000 echoes:
1200 for the engine
500 for one of the story parts
~150 for Honey (unless you have a very high mirrors score)
1 Scintillack (Port Cecil)
3 Secrets

Anyway, first port of call is Venderbight (if you're lucky) or Irem (with some coffee). Then off to Khan's Heart (bring 500 echoes), and then back to London, to the Forgotten Quarter. Assuming luck goes your way, you'll get Serpentine.

Sunless Sea Montage

I realized that if you git gud you can beat every monster in the game with the worst ship with starting stats (although I also abuse the scintillack some because it is nice. Another exploit discovered with this ship was that you can expand your cargo permanently by dumping stuff like weapons and engines into the sea, they won't disappear right away so you can equip them and get 1+ to max cargo. You can easily sail all over the map with this ship without any special preparations or grinding, I guess that has been known for a long time by Sunless Sea superplayers, but it was news to me!

Also those Jillyfleurs are one of the scariest enemies to fight when humping; their turn radius is tiny and they charge very far.

Sunless Sea Legacies | An Adumbration of Her Heart | +10 Pages | Explore the Abyss

Read more for the quick answers!

So, back to Sunless Sea. I've been exploring the Zubmariner content, and here's how to get a very easy legacy, which also boosts stats insanely on later playthroughs.

An Adumbration of Her Heart requires that you explore the many, many Abysses littered under the Zee. Perhaps you've ventured into them and found the dark cathedrals waiting below?

When you sail(?) over one, an interaction will appear. There are four in total (spread randomly across 16 or so abysses), and you need to submerge all four in the correct order.

First, the Abyss of Scriptures, then Pyres, Pomegranates and finally the Abyss of Graves. Dive twice (a tricky hearts challenge), and start the appropriate rituals.

When all are complete, it's Elemental time. What will you choose?

Good luck!

Sunless Sea Best Engine: Fulgent Impeller & Tireless Mechanic Story (Element of Dawn)

Playlist:

Ahh, the Fulgent Impellor. A very long, very complicated quest, involving all sorts of running all over the map, and upgrading of ships.

You'll need an Element of Dawn, cargo space for 42 items (plus fuel and supplies), the Unsettling Sage from Wisdom and the Mechanic's Secret from Frostfound.

The Element of Dawn requires the Memento Mori, available through the Cannoneer's Story, and that's here:

None of these are easy things to do, but the engine is excellent, and totally worth it.

Ranneko's Zailing Tips 1 - Fuel, Lights and Hiding in Fights

A little bit of an experiment in shorter, more edited videos. This is a series giving advice for new zailors on the unterzee. The focus at least at the start will be basic advice on getting the most out of your initial characters.

Today's tip is about lights, it is probably the most easy thing to miss, but also the easiest thing to give advice about. Lights consume fuel. This is surprisingly less than obvious.
