A couple of those are terrifying, so I think I'll just assume it's the first one, which doesn't seem that bad.

If your looking for fake I'd I can sort you out with that very easily I could even have it so when they do the checks it comes back as you can give you a whole fake real I'd kind of thing. Could even go about with you only being 10 I'm guessing your on the shorter side could pass you of as a little person that way they can't judge you in that way.

... really?  Exactly how much would be affected by this and what would you charge?

Having a government-recognised alias to default to might be incredibly beneficial.  If I justify my height by claiming one of a number of disabilities, make it obscure enough that most are afraid to ask for further details, that could be most effective.

You may have to give me some time to work out payment.  I don't exactly carry money, normally, nor anything of value but I may be able to scrape something together in time.  If you can provide anything approximating a quote, the sooner the better, that would be appreciated.

Do consider me interested, though.

This is why magic is worse even than quantum physics. Because, while both spit in the eye of common sense, I've never yet had a Higgs bosun turn up and try to have a conversation with me.

So here's a thought.  By great expenditure of effort, we were able to dispel the illusion around a magically hidden dwelling in our last forced recollection.  We were granted an item which we will doubtless find in a secret place, personal to each of us but until now hidden from our sight.

If this is a simple case of our memories being hidden from us or the items being magically obscured, would it not be possible to pool our efforts again and discover the rest (if any) of these chimerical items?  It would certainly help the decision making process, we would know who we had earned the favour of in years past, and it would grant us the upper hand against our aggressors, should we meet them in person.

Also, if we have been granted these boons, why would they only affect us as we remember them?  They persist across the vast gulf of time, they are still effective.  Are they tied to memory?  I am not quite sure that I fully trust these gifts, especially given that one is a literal holy relic, if a minor one.

They could be terribly valuable to the right buyer, though...

Do you know what it is you're looking for though? I mean, without that, we could just spend a few hours staring at random shite. Unless you've got a detect magic spell or somethin', like a wizard?

That's quite valid and well reasoned.  If the items aren't in the same place each time, that would be a problem.

I get back.  So far the trinkets have been appearing in Patch.  I suspect they'll be hidden around the freehold from now on.

I certainly hope that someone is enjoying our scavenger hunt.

Indulge me, I'd like to get things quite straight in my mind.  I feel like we're pursuing many threads at this moment and almost every person we meet is delighting in weaving them into a web of misdirection.

As I understand it (and please correct me if I am wrong), our current goals are:

Meet the Isaacs - to find out about their involvement with the fae, learn about mages still in their employ etc
Meet the faceless man - find out about and possibly put a stop to his actions.  See what he knows about crafting devil traps.
Find Ganesh's tooth - believed to be in the possession of musicians.  The unseelie queen might have some ideas.  Habibi has a personal interest.
Find Xander - or at least confirm that he still lives...
Find the Russian witch - see what her involvement was with that unnatural child
Find the source of the power which causes us to relive our memories
Find out why we have been dormant for so long and what we mean to the world


Have we a priority objective, outside of finding Xander?

Also, to be completely blunt, if the rest of you would be in favour of teaching a longer lasting lesson to Reynard, I would be most interested.  What a nasty, deceitful little beast he is.
