Nutshell

Cricket (Сверчок) is the name given to the children who can be found in the Nutshell sitting by a broken lantern starting from Day 3. Cricket tells the Haruspex the lantern doesnt work, and when asked how long the lantern has been broken, Cricket responds it's always been like that. The Haruspex asks why Cricket keeps the lantern if it was always broken, and they say Fly brought it from a dumpster long ago, but now Fly lives in the Tower and doesn't visit anymore. When asked why they're not in the Tower, Cricket says that Lisa and Mew are still there, and that they're friends.

The Haruspex can then fix the lantern for them using one Metal Scrap. If fixed, the lantern will light up, projecting an image of the Town, the Abattoir, and the Polyhedron under a starry sky on the walls in blue light. Cricket will be astonished, and the Haruspex will say that this is the history of the Town, three different worlds in the palm of one hand. The image projected by the lantern resembles the Changeling's map from Pathologic Classic HD.

Fixing the lantern will grant the achievement Magic Lantern.

Cricket can be a variant of a Tot NPC or a Teensy NPC, depending on who the Haruspex speaks to.

Age

Location
The Soul-and-a-Half Fortress

Dandy (Пижон) is a member of the Soul-and-a-Halves. He can be found inside of the Soul-and-a-Half Fortress sitting next to Catnip during Act 1 and Act 2. Dandy tells the Haruspex that he and the other teenagers and children like to trade for sharp objects. The Haruspex can then trade with Dandy for items such as Lockpicks.

On Day 4, the Haruspex will find Dandy sitting outside of the Soul-and-a-Half Fortress. He informs the Haruspex that Patches has passed away, despite being treated the day before. Dandy also tells the Haruspex about some puppies that a Soul-and-a-Half, named Biscuit, brought to them and that it's a good occasion, even though one of the pups was stillborn. If Notkin is sick, Dandy will tell the Haruspex that Notkin has become infected and wonders if it is some form of canine disease. The two will discuss the Plague and Dandy offers the Haruspex a map of that day's infected districts made by their scouts, for which the Haruspex will admonish him and the other children for putting themselves in danger.

After this point, Dandy will be found sitting at a crate on the right side of the Soul-and-a-Half fortress. The Haruspex can trade with him for Infection Maps along with the other items that Dandy had available before. As the maps are created by sending out members of the Soul-and-a-Halves, medicine and tinctures will have a high value.

If Notkin dies, Dandy will be in Notkin's spot in the Soul-and-a-Half Fortress. When spoken to, Dandy says that things have become down after losing Notkin and that Jester yowls at night. Many of the Souls have scattered, and he implies that some have returned to the Polyhedron, as he says that he won't be going to the Tower. The Haruspex asks him why he doesn't want to go back and Dandy says the Tower makes everything too easy, that it fulfills every dream and fantasy, and compares it to living on candy. He says "One needs soup, too." The Haruspex asks if the Souls have replaced Notkin with another leader and Dandy tells him they haven't.

Dandy is a variant of the Finch NPC.


Trade


The first Infection Map on Day 4 will be given to the Haruspex for free by talking to Dandy outside of the Soul-and-a-Half Fortress. Afterwards, the Haruspex must trade with Dandy to receive Infection Maps. The value of Infection Maps will increase daily.

Gnarl

Ouzelhatlesstrade.png
Name
Gnarl (Корявый)
Location
The Warehouses

Gnarl (Корявый) is the name of the owner of the Shady Shop and sells food. He is located in the Warehouses. Gnarl is the only store owner in the Town who the Haruspex is able to interact with regardless of reputation, as the Warehouses does not have a reputation meter. Although he is in the Warehouses and is located near Bad Grief's Nest, he is not actually part of Grief's gang.

Gnarl's prices for food items are always slightly higher than those of other grocers in Town until after the dawn of Day 7 at 07:30, when the Inquisitor arrives and he becomes the only grocer who still sells food for money.

When the Haruspex first arrives at Gnarl's store after the arrival of the Inquisitor, Gnarl asks if he is there to bust him for still exchanging food for money. If the Haruspex questions him, Gnarl explains that the Inquisitor has ordered all grocers to only accept candy wrappers and survive by trading those and calls her a dictator. The Haruspex asks if he will stay open for business long and Gnarl says he will, if the Haruspex will buy food from him. He then says that everything will blow over in a week, as the Inquisitor won't stay in the Town forever, and he'll have a vault of wealth by then.

Gnarl is a variant of the Ouzel NPC.

Hardhead

Dove.png
Name
Hardhead (Деляга)
Faction
The Inquisition
Location
The Town

Hardhead (Деляга) is the name given to the grocers that arrive in the Town alongside the Inquisitor.

When the Haruspex first enters a grocery after the arrival of the Inquisitor on Day 7, Hardhead tells him to put away his purse and that they no longer trade for money. When he asks her what she means, she snaps at him that they only trade food for Inquisitorial Coupons now, due to the Inquisitor's decree in an effort to get rid of profiteers. The Haruspex tells her that he thinks it won't be much use, although Hardhead counters that it will at the very least slow them down. When he asks her where he should get Coupons, she tells him to check with the Fund at the Town Hall, since he - as one of the Town's few doctors - is considered 'upper crust'.

The Haruspex can still buy food for money from groceries on Day 7 as long as it's before 07:30, when the Inquisitor arrives. Grocers are immediately replaced by Hardhead once the time reaches 07:30.

It is possible that Day 7's tagline - In which new actors enter the stage, and the old ones reveal themselves in unexpected ways - is referring to how the grocers are all replaced by Hardhead.

Hardhead is a variant of the Dove NPC.

At the Warehouses, the Haruspex will find several children playing near Notkin's Soul-and-a-Half Fortress. Hunter tells him that they are trying to catch a cat and asks him what they should do. The Haruspex will suggest they try luring the cat with Milk. Hunter asks the Haruspex to bring them some milk to help them catch the cat.

After the Haruspex pours milk into the bowl they've laid out, Hunter thanks the Haruspex for his assistance and gives him an Old Shmowder. The Haruspex leaves and can hear a cat's yowl and some thuds. If he returns to the same spot, he will find Hunter and the other children standing around an overturned bowl of milk. Hunter is upset and blames the Haruspex for their inability to catch the cat, stating that the Haruspex's footsteps were too noisy and scared the cat away.

Hunter can be a variant of the Teensy, Tot, or Swift NPC, depending on who the Haruspex speaks to.

The Haruspex can ask Loy if the bull is stolen, to which Loy replies that it is not, it is simply that "money is needed more than bulls these days". Loy says that the prices will rise two times tomorrow and another four times the day after that, so he wants to stock up on supplies that day.

The Haruspex asks how he knows this and Loy says that his bull told him. Loy then tells the Haruspex that the bull he is offering to sell is also lucky, and that it will tell the Haruspex what to do when the time is right. He explains that the bull will talk on the scariest day of the Haruspex's life and guide him.

If the Haruspex purchases the bull, Loy will bring it to his lair on Day 2. He says the Haruspex will be rewarded for believing him.

Starting from Day 4, the Haruspex can find Maera in the Nutshell. Maera asks the Haruspex for a Soul-and-a-Halves leash in exchange for a shmowder. She explains she doesn't need the shmowder as the Polyhedron is infection-free, but she needs the leash. To take up the role of Hound in the Dogheads, she needs one more leash (symbolising a defeated Soul-and-a-Half). This leash can be acquired with trickery or diplomacy, so she is happy to trade one with the Haruspex.

The Revolver will have approximately 50% durability and offers this deal to the Haruspex until the start of Act 3.

If pressed about why Steeper does not give him the Revolver for free, Steeper tells the Haruspex that the Factory has been shut down and he is concerned about his job security and needs to provide for his family. Steeper also says that Big Vlad does not care for his workers, and doubts that the Olgimskys will offer any financial assistance to those who lose their jobs.

Starlinglacetrade.png
Name
Evergreen (Медуница)
Location
The Town

Evergreen (Медуница) is a messenger who approaches the Haruspex on Day 2 at 10:00 to impart on him the importance of trading within the Town. The quest received from her is a tutorial on the game's trading mechanics.

Evergreen gives the Haruspex a Thimble and tells him that it is a sign of trust. She says that people share their feelings - warmth, kindness - with each other in the same way they share things. She says that the Town now trusts him and asks if he wants to become part of it. He can protest that he is part of it, but she says he has been away for too long. Evergreen then asks if the Haruspex likes the item, as she chose randomly because nobody really knows him yet.

When the Haruspex asks what she wants in exchange, she tells him it doesn't matter what is exchanged as long as the exchange itself occurred. She then emphasizes that all items are charged with bits of the person carrying them around - the person's warmth and life. Evergreen also mentions that if he shares generously, the Town will remember, and people will like him better. She then gives him the quest, saying that he should go trade with everyone to help the Town remember, accept, and maybe even love him.

The quest requires the Haruspex to trade with a man, a woman, a teenager, and a child. After doing so, his reputation in the Town will increase in all districts.

After speaking with the Haruspex, Evergreen functions as a regular Starling NPC. Thus, if the Haruspex's reputation in the district is too low, he will be unable to trade with her. However, if his reputation is not too low, he can trade with her right away to complete part of the quest.

Evergreen is a variant of the Starling NPC.

Whilst trading with townsfolk as part of Evergreen's quest, the Haruspex will receive unique dialogue the first time he trades with someone from each category.

  • Men will tell the Haruspex they have carried their item for several days and that it has been difficult. They share their fear, sorrow, and anger, and thank him for easing their burden. The Haruspex can offer his grief, his warmth, or wish that they find his item useful.
  • Women will give the Haruspex hope. They say he is the only doctor there now who can treat the wounded and help deliver children. She then says hope often leads to love. The Haruspex can offer to give them a bit of warmth or his grief.
  • Teenagers will give the Haruspex some of their luck and mentions that people say they have a lot of it. The Haruspex can offer to give them patience, courage, compassion, care, or wit.
  • Young children haven't learned the ritual yet and are confused after trading. They ask the Haruspex about what he has given them and then ask him what he would like in return. The Haruspex can ask for some rest, to leave the Town, or to have his father back, although he will mention it's only a dream.

Scout (Посыльный) is a member of the Soul-and-a-Halves. He is a messenger sent to the Haruspex by Notkin on Day 3 at 11:00. Scout tells the Haruspex that one of their members, Patches, has become ill and will likely die soon. They had already requested the Bachelor's help when he was searching the Warehouses, but he was unable to treat Patches as he believed the medicines the Souls had available were too old and dangerous to be used. Scout calls the Bachelor a fraud for his inability to treat Patches and because he wants them all to stay inside.

Notkin thus sent Scout along with several other Souls out to search for the Haruspex. After relaying the details of the situation, Scout also tells him there is a time-limit, as the Bachelor said Patches would only survive until the evening, before nightfall.

Blood (Кровь), Nerve (Нерв), and Skin (Кожа) are a group of people standing near the Crucible, gazing up at the roof of the Cathedral on the morning of Day 3.

Blood tells the Haruspex that the crows being so numerous that year is a bad omen, although he will agree that it is beautiful. He tells the Haruspex the gathering of crows means they are waiting for carrion, and being eaten by crows means giving oneself to the sky, rather than Mother Boddho, the Earth. As the Kin revere Boddho and believe the sky is the origin of evil, it is considered a bad way to go.

Nerve tells the Haruspex that according to the Kains, every building is a machine. He says the Cathedral has nothing to do with religion and people claim that it makes time. Nerve proposes that Simon Kain wanted people to feel the flow of time differently within it and planned its construction accordingly, but the idea was simplified due to the rumours. He says that the crows slow time down, which the Kains hate, as they seem to believe complacency and laziness are the worst sins, tantamount to death.

Skin tells the Haruspex that the crows not being noticed by anyone else is a bad omen. She says that since crows are harbingers of death, whomever doesn't notice them will die soon. She says that the three of them - Blood, Nerve, and herself - had been standing there for a long time and many people passed by without stopping to look at the crows. The Haruspex can correct her, as he is now the fourth person who has stopped to look at the crows.

Hatchling then says that Isidor was a good doctor and healed Verochka within a week, although she had to cut off her hair. She tells the Haruspex if he ever gets sick, he should find Isidor.

Hatchling will comment that the Haruspex suddenly appears sad, and he distracts them by asking them about the house again.

Aside from destroying pumps, some are looking for the Plague carrier while some are stocking up on kerosene in order to burn houses.

Smokey says that things used to be peaceful between the two groups. Everyone used to only mingle with their own gang, but recently it's escalated into a war.
