Sunless Sea Guide - How to make money in the early game (minor spoilers)

Playlist:

So, a small guide for Sunless Sea, covering how to get going in the early game and make some money.

It's actually pretty straightforward, and takes advantage of the fact that death is encouraged.

Essentially, quickly make 200 echoes, buy the reproach gun, die, pass it to your heir, and then get going. Head out and uncover as many ports as possible, including strategic information for the Admiralty.

Uncover the Salt Lions if you can, and also Mount Palmerston (because the Blind Bruiser quests can net quite a lot of cash quickly).

Spend the first 1200 on lodgings and a will, and don't forget to start a scion legacy, which will put you in great shape for down the line. You can then retire, if you like, and do it all again, starting from an even stronger position.

After that, you're on your own!

Sunless Sea: Zubmariner - How to Make Money Trading - A Stoic Plays

While not really intended to be a trading game, with the right ship and route you can make a lot of money trading goods in the Zubmariner expansion for Sunless Sea. In this video I show you how.

Sunless Sea: Zubmariner is a game by Failbetter Games ( and can be purchased on Steam (

Disclosure: The developers were kind enough to give me a preview version of the game but as always the choice to record the video was my own and content was not influenced in any way.

Sunless Sea: How To Reduce Terror Guide

Playlist:

In this guide, we'll look at how to manage and reduce Terror. We'll look at a few things you can buy to do it (bigger engines, for example), and the effect of the main ports which can rapidly mitigate and reduce terror issues.

Mostly, they're around the edge - Fallen London and the Cumaen Canal are obvious candidates, but there's perhaps a few further afield you didn't know about

Let's Play Sunless Sea because it's now in 1.0 Pearl Release! This Sunless Sea walkthrough will show you how the gameplay works and Josh will review the game as he plays!

This is Part 1 of the Lets Play, to see the other episodes of the playthrough check out this playlist:


About the game:

Sunless Sea is a nautical roguelike in glorious 2D, presenting a non-linear, choice-heavy, personalised experience.

Set on a randomised map, it’ll take dozens of games to explore all the sub-plots, grand arcs, alternatives, mysteries, relationships and romances in the game. Your character will die (or disappear, or lose her mind, or be hollowed out and filled with candle-wax and haunt a cliff-top chapel), but their legacy may survive. You’ll build up your own story across generations of zailors who braved the Unterzee and lost – or won…

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 - ZUBMARINER DLC - How to get the Zubmarine and Zub gameplay (Zubmarine Guide)

Hi Reddit!

Today in the Sunless Sea DLC Zubmariner I show you a guide on how to get the Zubmarine, some good money early on, and from 10:00 enjoy some fun Zubmarine gameplay!

Welcome back to the UnterZee, Captain! The first expansion pack for Sunless Sea is here and DANG it's hard. Harder than the first one. DANG.

- Zubmariner DLC

LOSE YOUR MIND. EAT YOUR CREW. DIVE.
Take the helm of your zubmarine and set sail for the unknown! Zubmariner is the first expansion to Sunless Sea: deeper, darker, and more marvellous than anything you’ve seen before.

All the powers of the Neath agree: there is Nothing of Consequence beneath the Zee. They are lying. You've heard there are fortunes to be made by those brave enough - or hungry enough - to dare the deeps.

Disturb the aberrant societies that flourish in the dark. Defy wreckers. Seduce a Drownie. Embrace or condemn the distinctly un-British customs of these cold, fathomless places.

You will definitely die. Will your next captain dive?

Game Information:

LOSE YOUR MIND. EAT YOUR CREW. DIE. Take the helm of your steamship and set sail for the unknown! Sunless Sea is a game of discovery, loneliness and frequent death, set in the award-winning Victorian Gothic universe of Fallen London.

LOSE YOUR MIND. EAT YOUR CREW. DIE.

Sunless Sea is a Gothic Horror RPG with a focus on exploration, exquisite storytelling and frequent death.

Captain a Victorian steamship on a vast underground sea

If the giant crabs, sentient icebergs and swarms of bats don’t get you, madness and cannibalism certainly will. But that old black ocean beckons, and there’s loot for the brave souls who dare to sail her.

Seek out intriguing individuals for your crew

Hire unique officers like the Haunted Doctor and the Irrepressible Cannoneer. Each has a story to tell, if you can draw it out of them.

Stray from the gas-lamps of civilisation

Light and dark, terror and madness: spend too long on the wide, dark sea and your crew will grow fearful and eventually lose their sanity.

Carve a life for your captain in a cruel and unique world

A deep, compelling world packed with 350,000+ words of stories and secrets. Find your father’s bones. Determine London’s destiny. Defy the gods of the deep sea.

Your captain will die.

Pass on resources from one generation to the next. Acquire a family home and a hoard of heirlooms. Build a legacy of zailors who braved the sea and lost - or, occasionally, won.

Features

Beautiful, hand drawn art - castles of sparkling ice, prisons perched on lily pads, fog-shrouded lighthouses and the DAWN MACHINE.

Real-time combat against ships and Zee-beasts, spider-crewed dreadnoughts and sentient icebergs.

Upgrade your steamship with powerful engines, cannons and pneumatic torpedo guns. (Or buy a bigger, better ship.)

Choose a ship’s mascot: the Comatose Ferret, the Wretched Mog, the Elegiac Cockatoo, and more!

Trade or smuggle silk and souls, mushroom wine and hallucinogenic honey.

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
