* Oxygen deprivation might be why being in the Neath a long time makes you count as "dead", but what's actually going on seems to be that [[spoiler:The Cave of the Nadir somehow protects the Neath from the laws of the Judgments. Once away from its influence, someone who has died but is still walking around is recognized as a FILTHY LAWLESS and Judged with their light.]]

[[WMG: Mr. Pages is struggling with learning English.]]
His tendency to use PerfectlyCromulentWords is because he likes to sound sophisticated or because he loves the sound of his own voice, right?

Wrong.

Even when he writes under a pseudonym or pretends to be Mr. Sacks, he still makes up words. Even though he probably knows that no one else in the entire Universe talks like that.

So he's not making up words to sound sophisticated. He's trying to derive English from first principles, because he can't wrap his head around the bastardized nonsense that Londoners call a language.

[[WMG: Mr. Eaten's name has been changed so that it contains the Correspondence glyph for "irrigo".]]
Even if you are told it, you forget it. Even if you write it down, you forget the moment you look away from the page. Even if you scar, stain, and chain yourself, you can still forget the quest. Sound familiar?

You might think that the Correspondence obviously doesn't have a glyph for the Neathy colors, but the fact that these colors only exist in the Neath proves otherwise. [[spoiler:Because they cannot exist under the light of the Judgments, they must be illegal. But for something to be illegal, it must be described in the Law. Because the Correspondence is the language in which the Law is written, it must have words to describe the Neathbow, if only to state that they Are Not.]]

* Conceivable, but not a given. There is nautical access to the surface via the Cumaean Canal, and trade vessels sometimes come and go by that route. Whether that's enough to supply oxygen to the entire Neath is unclear. Also, the restriction on resurfacing seems to apply mainly to those who have died or been in the Neath quite a long time. Lastly, their death on the surface seems to manifest as variably-paced ''immolation'', which seems rather unrelated to suffocation.

[[WMG: The Gracious Widow is a survivor of the Fourth City]]
Namely, [[spoiler:Karakorum, old capital of the Mongolian Empire. The reason she lived for so long without aging is because of the peach brandy, which is described as having a similar effect to Hesperidean Cider.]]
* Her origins and identity are (in the game's usual oblique way) given during the Affair of the Box. The spinoff game ''The Silver Tree'' provides further context as to her identity (as it does on most everything else about the Fourth City).

* [[spoiler: {{Jossed}} with authority. The Sixth City is apparently [[ChekhovsGun Paris]], thanks to the aforementioned timey-wimeyness in the Lost In Reflections storylet. That still leaves the Seventh City, though.]]

[[WMG: March's identity.]]
So, a few years back, we met March of the Calendar Council - a jovial fellow who tried to undercut Mr Wines' business by distributing coffee. This past Hallowmas, the Haunted Doctor revealed that the Council had had him assassinate one of their own - a friendly chap who always offered him coffee - because their religion was getting in the way of the Council's politics. We learn more about the Doctor's victim from the Dauntless Temperance Campaigner - that they were a devout Christian and advocate of Temperance, called John, and that it was generally assumed that Mr Wines was behind their death. My guess - that this poor Councilman was in fact March, and further, that they were real-world coffee merchant John Cassell, of the Working Man's Friend.
