The Age of Decadence Wiki

Like all Vignettes in The Age of Decadence, this is essentially linear; it is simply the sequence of events which delivers The Map into the hands of a specific character-type (in this case, the Loremaster).

Lore[ | ]

As a child, you loved listening to stories about the old days, filled with gods fighting alongside men, power-wielding magi - more demigods than human, and monsters conjured by the cowardly Qantari. So when an opportunity presented itself, you signed up as an apprentice to a local loremaster named Feng.

. . .

Master Feng is looking for you.

Tips[ | ]

  • Before you speak to Feng, be sure to examine the contents of the back room:
    • Either one of the Documents will immediately add 10 SP to Lore (the second one will do nothing).
    • If your Perception is at least 8, the Boxes will add 10 SP to Lockpick.
    • The other objects (Chest, Desk, Goblet, Junk) simply provide hints as to Feng's academic interests and professional integrity; they contain nothing to add to your Inventory or Skills.
  • This is the only opportunity to start Prospector's Amulet:
    • Accepting it doesn't interfere with your current task in any way - and even at your most shrewd there's no way you can afford the Item until later - but it is worth checking ahead, in case you want to start with the skill necessary for a preferred outcome.
