I have no idea where anything is. I have no idea what anything does. This is not merely a madhouse designed by a madman, but a madhouse designed by many madmen, each with an intense hatred for the previous madman's unique flavour of madness.

Fabulist

(Someone who composes fables)
That's one of my favorite bits/jokes in Fallen London.  In the setting, bits of information (from gossip to scientific theories to stories) are easily commodities which are exchanged as easily as coins.  Often you can exchange a bunch of lesser factoids for a few more interesting ones.  When you do there's a random chance that you the player will get a narrative hint about one of the setting's mysteries, as a message volunteered by the character you're trading with.

The Salty Fabulist (nobody has names in the Neath, only titles)... appears to follow this trend.  Except in true zailor fashion, he lies.  He lies hard.  His tales are completely inaccurate, wildly fanciful, and very easy to believe considering how much weird stuff occurs in the setting.  Occasionally his tales will even parody the truth, but never in a way that actually aids understanding.

And yet the maps he trades to you are... as accurate as any maps are, in the Neath.  The zee is constantly changing anyway.

He's a lot like M'aiq the Liar from various Elder Scrolls games.  A sprinkle of truth, here and there, but otherwise a fabulist.
