The Broken Heart is the largest pub in the Town and is owned by Andrey Stamatin, an architect who would rather break bones than build homes. The protagonists can visit the pub to talk to Andrey and other NPCs as well as trade with the bartender.

Description

The Broken Heart is owned by Andrey Stamatin. It is possible for the player to trade with the bartender in both Pathologic and Pathologic 2 while Andrey can only be traded with in Pathologic.

Plot

Pathologic

All characters can trade with the bartender regardless of reputation.

Bachelor Route

On Day 2 the Bachelor will be asked by Eva Yan to ask Andrey Stamatin for help in escaping the town.

On Day 5 Willow Mellow will be at the pub.

Haruspex Route

The Haruspex can trade herbs and twyrine to Andrey in exchange for bullets and shotguns starting from Day 2.

On Day 2 both of the Stamatins will be in the Broken Heart. The Haruspex will be asked by Andrey Stamatin to bring him brown twyre. Maria Kaina will also appear in the Broken Heart after accepting Andrey's request after a certain amount of time has passed.

On Day 5, Willow Mellow will be found inside the pub. After speaking with her, she can then be found outside in the area behind the pub.

As Andrey is one of the Bachelor's Bound, an Executor may be found standing outside on Day 12.

Changeling Route

The Changeling can trade herbs and twyrine to Andrey in exchange for twyrine extracts starting from Day 2.

On Day 5 the Changeling will be asked by Katerina Saburova to convert the Stamatin siblings from the 'heresy of the Utopians'. As Peter Stamatin will only entertain Katerina's request if his brother does, the Changeling must speak with Andrey in the Broken Heart. The conversation turns hostile as she and Andrey argue their faith in theology and God, and he sends her away.

This argument has no impact on the player's ability to barter with Andrey.

As Andrey is one of the Bachelor's Bound, an Executor may be found standing outside on Day 12.

Pathologic 2

The Haruspex is first able to visit the Broken Heart at the end of Day 1 where he decides to drink to his father’s memory. Here, he will meet Andrey and Peter Stamatin, as well as Vlad the Younger. Peter will give him two bottles of twyrine as a gift.

On Day 2, if the Haruspex gains access to his father’s house and finds the key to his laboratory, he can visit Vlad the Younger in the Broken Heart once more to ask about the secret lair, as the note with the key was signed “V.O”.

On Day 3, Georgiy Kain will ask the Haruspex to confirm Andrey and Peter’s safety after the outbreak hits the town. Andrey will be in the Broken Heart, to which he will demand the Haruspex conform his brother’s safety instead. Notkin and Khan will also be found here, discussing a planned visit to a “dead house” in the Crude Sprawl, which may be a hotbed for infection.

The Bachelor can be found late in the evening on Day 5 for the Haruspex to deliver bull's blood to him so he can inspect its qualities for potential medicine.

On Day 11, in his quest for the courier carrying Aglaya Lilich's orders, the Haruspex will find the bar trashed and under control of several bandits. They are holding a man claiming to be “Artemy Burakh” hostage, and will only allow the Haruspex to speak with him if he performs immediate surgery on a dying comrade of theirs. The man claiming to be “Artemy Burakh” will be seated on the stage where the Herb bride dancer usually performs.

In the Dinural Ending, Bachelor will be seated in the bar, contemplating the fall of the Polyhedron. Andrey, Peter, Anna Angel and Yulia Lyuricheva may also be present, depending on their survival through the events of the game.

The Marble Nest

Architect Andrey Stamatin is dead for as long as his brother is.
The Bachelor's Marble Nest hover

The Broken Heart is located in the condemned part of The Town. When hovering over the building on the map Andrey Stamatin will be noted as alive.

Trade

In Pathologic, the bartender will buy player items and offer food, drugs, twyrine, and trinkets. The player may give Andrey herbs and twyrine in exchange for ammo, guns, and twyrine extracts.

In Pathologic 2, all trade is done with the bartender, who will sell food and drink, as well as buy different kinds of twyre from the player. Each day, there will be a specific type of twyre requested for a special deal, where the bartender will pay extra. The bartender will only offer money in return.


Item Description Details
Apple.png
Apple
Not too fresh, but still able to satisfy a little hunger and thirst. Each seed might one day become a tree, its roots permeating Earth.
Chestnuts.png
Chestnuts
There are no chestnut trees around, yet chestnuts are pervasive. Truly a town of mysteries. The game goes like this: find a nut that has traveled far, guess its name, shake it, and listen to stories from the soul trapped inside.


This originated with the Polyhedron. We didn't play it as kids.

Coffee.png
Coffee
Coffee beans will immediately energize you, but it's very unhealthy. You can forgo sleep with coffee - for a week or more, if need be, but it's a bad idea. Whoever refuses dreams dares fate to pass them over.
Egg.png
Egg
Nothing like a good egg. Delicious. The chicken has yet to be seen. People mostly eat unfertilized eggs. This is an empty illusion of possible life.
Hazelnuts.png
Hazelnuts
Can be munched down—with little effect. The kids here would sell their souls for a handful. The game goes like this: find a nut that has traveled far, guess its name, shake it, and listen to stories from the soul trapped inside.


This originated with the Polyhedron. We didn't play it as kids.

Kashk.png
Kashk
A dry, fermented dairy product. Salty. When herding cows and bulls in the steppe, odonghs often live on water and kashk for months at a time. Nothing fancy, but it's nourishing.
Lemon.png
Lemon
Eating a lot of lemons is bad for your teeth. They won't make you less hungry, but they're certainly an invigorating fruit. When life gives you lemons...
Milk.png
Milk
Warm, creamy. Satisfies hunger and thirst. Reminds me of childhood. Often used as an offering to the dead, milk serves as a reminder that all that is born must come to an end. It is said that the dead drink milk over water because the flow of water reminds them of the flow of time.
Peanuts.png
Peanuts
Nuts can be munched down, but they do little to sate hunger. Why then do the local kids' eyes light up when they see one? Used in the most popular game among local children, nuts are forbidden in the Polyhedron, where most of the kids fled from the plague. The "voices of nuts" were said to make the facets of the Polyhedron resonate in a bad way.
Pemmican.png
Pemmican
A mixture of meat, fruit, and fat. Extremely filling, only slightly revolting. Pemmican isn't eaten for pleasure. This form preserves meat and fat, so that's how odonghs prepare it before venturing into the steppe for weeks to herd bulls.
Raisins.png
Raisins
Once a juicy grape, now a small sweet that wouldn't satisfy an infant. If a train is late, first we run out of cookies, then chocolate, then candy. Only after that do children remember raisins.
Tan.png
Tan
A tasty dairy drink. Satisfies hunger, quenches thirst. The Kin once told me the best tan is made during thunderstorms, or by swearing at the milk as harsh as you can. I tried every cuss in the book, but never learned the art very well.
Toast.png
Toast
Soldier food. It's better to eat fresh bread. Stale bread is bad news. It doesn't breathe.
Twyrine.png
Twyrine
A herbal infusion. Drink to reveal places and events hidden from the naked eye. The Town calls to me. But it's hard to hear over my own thoughts. If I quiet them down, I can sense the pulse of life all over the Town.
Walnuts.png
Walnuts
Can be munched down—with little effect. The kids here would sell their souls for a handful. The game goes like this: find a nut that has traveled far, guess its name, shake it, and listen to stories from the soul trapped inside.

Item Description
Ui coffee b.png
Coffee
Has a strong effect on the heart and blood vessels which this environment makes even more harmful. On the other hand, coffee decreases fatigue, making it essential during emergencies.
Flower.png
Flower
Women like flowers—both little girls and lascivious dancers.
Bronzebracelet.png
Bronze Bracelet
A very simple, old bronze bracelet. It may be hundreds of years old.
Silverring.png
Silver Ring
An old silver ring. Crafted somewhat roughly, the ring still looks quite valuable due to its age. Rings with ornaments of this kind are sometimes found in southern burial mounds.
Goldring.png

A beautiful gold ring. Such rings used to be in fashion some thirty years ago.
Earrings.png
Earrings
Beautiful antique piece. Earrings with ornaments of this kind are sometimes found in southeastern burial mounds.

There is nothing special about it, although the case and lid seem to be made of lowgrade silver.
Bonenecklace.png
Bone Necklace
A beautiful necklace carved from a bone that does not resemble bull horn, but rather mammoth or elephant tusk. Smooth and heavy. A prominent example of primitive art.
Hook.png
Hook
An ordinary fishing-hook. Can be of significant value to children, and not only because it's sharp. A hook is a somewhat grim element of local children's superstitions, connected with burial rituals.
Ui morfin b.png
Morphine
A universal opiate painkiller. Has a strong analgesic (15s) and sedative (-25e) effect. Used for heavy injuries, acute pain and in preparation for surgery. Reduces fatigue (8e/ph) and increases health (2s/ph) when sleeping. The effect lasts for 10 hours.

Saviur.png
Swevery
A rare herb. The people of the Steppe don't worship it as much as twyre (which, according to the legends, is how the earth gives back the souls of the dead), but they often use it in their potions, because it greatly amplifies the medicinal qualities of twyre... 2

Twyrine

TwyrineExtract.png
Twyrine Extract
A valuable immunity boosting infusion made of several herbs. Its effect heavily depends on random factors: the types of herbs, the time and place the herbs were gathered, the composition of the herb mix. If all the factors are favorable, it's possible to prepare an infusion that greatly increases immunity and inflicts almost no damage to health. 10
