Sunless Sea is a game of stories, and also shortly after beginning your very own story, you'll open up up a branching course in collapse London ~ above making the acquaintance the the remote Bruiser. A one-eyed, polite gentleman of the docks who nonetheless seems come brandish a knife where he goes, the remote Bruiser represents an interested party native a adjacent business establishment . . . And also if you're willing to threat some treacherous waters, he might just have a organization deal or 2 for you.


Unlocking the blind Bruiser

The blind Bruiser represents possibly among the simplest branching story to discover in Sunless Sea. Set out indigenous Fallen London and proceed until there's something wait for friend in port. Girlfriend can attain this effect simply through travelling because that a while and also waiting for flavour text to pop up on your ship's log in in the bottom-left edge of the screen. Zee-bats wailing, creatures following in the wake up of her ship, who laughing top top the deck, all of these are indications that there are brand-new opportunities waiting in ports roughly the Unterzee.


Go back to please London and you'll watch a brand-new option waiting, add by the blind Bruiser's happy picture.

A little gift

The remote Bruiser will certainly happily greet you once you do port and also approach him, and also he comes bearing gifts: no much less than five Supplies and ten Fuel. Not a bad haul, particularly for new players, and he assures you the they come in ~ no expense . . . Save the anticipation of favours that might need to it is in fulfilled in the future. You deserve to turn him down now and also end the quest cold, or you deserve to accept his offer and also indebt yourself to the owner the the Meduca's Head, the Cheery Man.


For the moment, that's all there is to the story. Head out and return as soon as there are more stories waiting in port, though, and also the blind Bruiser will be waiting.

A little proposal

Upon come at please London, you'll receive notification that the remote Bruiser is searching for you, and also if you try to leave city you'll be compelled to speak through him. He has actually a favour to ask on instead of of his boss, namely that you provide a package to a call at mount Palmerston. You have actually two options:


Accept. not a large deal, right? You'll obtain the Bruiser's gratitude, and also an Unstamped Crate of Bottled Souls.Refuse. The blind Bruiser will certainly be upset, and though you'll never see the again, her ship will gain whatever is more than likely perfectly all best status. If this happens, your ship is an ext prone to difficulties while in ~ zee. (Haven't confirmed this. Go anybody recognize exactly what happens?)

If you decision to expropriate you'll have to make the treacherous trip to mountain Palmerston, far to the northeast of please London. Your finest course over there is to monitor the western coastline to Venderbight, island hop to the east until you reach Demeaux Island, head a brief distance northeast come the Bonny Reefs, and also then continue northeast across a spot of darkened water to mount Palmerston. The enemies along the means can gain powerful, so move cautiously.

After dropping turn off the 'package' you'll be sent back to please London. As soon as there you have the right to either refuse the reward available by the blind Bruiser, squaring her debt and also ending the questline, or expropriate his proffered 200 Echo and also continue the service relationship. The latter leads to the third, lengthiest ar of this quest.


A small request

On the same pilgrimage you return and accept the reward, the blind Bruiser will again stop you and ask for another favour. In this case, he desires you to go across the zees, provide a mighty 1000 Echoes, and collect things of keep in mind from a trader in Polythreme. Refuse to end the questline; agree to collection sail, getting 1000 Echoes in the process.

(It is really really really tempting to invest these Echoes. Ns wouldn't recommend it uneven you're aware of the consequences. Have a look at below.)


If friend agree to ferry the money come Polythreme and actually do it, head south of collapse London until you check out Mutton Island on your right. Sail eastern from Mutton Island to discover Abbey Rock. Zip southern from the absent to find Godfall. You'll uncover Polythreme throughout the Tides of Appetite come the southeast. Watch out for pirate pearl patrolling these waters. The contact here will offer you an additional Unstamped Crate that Bottled Souls and also send you ago to London because that the dropoff. The Bruiser will provide you 200 Echoes for her help.

If you fail to collection the Crate prior to returning come Fallen London, or if you merely spent the money and didn't have sufficient to to buy the Crate, you'll uncover the blind Bruiser waiting with a huge contingent the thugs. He wants the Echoes back, plus interest . . . Say, another half on top. In short, 1500 Echoes. You have actually two options:


Pay him off. You'll square her debt and also never watch the guy again. Ouch, that's a lot that money lost.FIGHT! Yep, you can try to fend the blighters off. In this case, you'll challenge a tough Iron challenge. Win and you'll acquire to store the money, though you'll shed one member of her Crew. Fail—and failing is much an ext likely to happen—and the remote Bruiser will certainly murder a large number of her Crew, perhaps all that them. If this wake up you'll have actually to quickly gather much more Crew before trying come leave, as setting sail through a Crew counting of zero is a video game Over. Ouch. (On the to add side, girlfriend do acquire to save the money.)

Regardless of her choice, her association through the blind Bruiser is finished.

If girlfriend were effective in your delivery, the blind Bruiser will technique you again prior to you leave port v a near-identical request. He gives you 1000 Echoes, you need to supply them come someone across the zee. This time, though, he'll ask you come head to Khan's Heart, the center of trade for the brand-new Khanate. Agree and you'll need to sail east, come the fixed of stalactites neighboring Gaider's Mourn, and also then south-east to uncover the Khanate. The other options—refusal, success, safety the money, fighting the blind Bruiser and his thugs—are the same to her previous mission.

Upon return, the remote Bruiser will give thanks to you heartily for your help, and also thereafter he'll continue to pop up . . . Apparently in a loop. As much as ns know, you'll continue to drop turn off money because that cargo until you end the quest yourself, cycling in between Polythreme and Khan's Heart and constantly earning credits. That's every for now, really, yet I've no doubt he'll offer an even much more sinister objective with later on updates . . .
