By now, most people will already know the number of Tears they have (will have). With this, keep in mind that it's best to have at least the same number of buckets as tears.
You need ToL to use Tears properly and, "worst" case scenario, you end using Monocle once and Tears up to 11 and NOT lose any Tears!

EDIT: Did some napkin math some time ago and I think the best preparation for side conversion is by farming honey; this includes cashing all Boh favours via the palace and using the Criminal R25 card to get 220 sweet stuff.
Honey to RN, RN to Visions in stacks of 50 (2 MW), Visions all the way to Documents, Documents to Kisses and Kisses to Favours, Favours using the Forger card. If there's an emergency you can convert RNs in stacks of 500 which will get you less MW in total, but more per AP.

Warming Tears (to raise ToL to 11) doesn't use pails of snow. It just uses the Tears (20% chance to lose it).

Whether this is a more efficient way to raise ToL (i.e. not most efficient way to use pails), really depends on whether it's easier for you to get Tears of the Bazaar or to get pails.

Tears give you - on average! - twice as much ToL as the pails do. But they are also harder to acquire (and obviously also are worth more).

After getting kicked out of University, The Six Handed Merchant ended up raising their Scholar of the Correspondence to 10 by conducting enough back-to-back Correspondence Symphonies to rival the total productions of Beethoven's 5th.

The screams were many, but in the end even the nightly pummelings from a half-mad audience were worth it, as tonight The Six Handed Merchant has finally become a Correspondent!

    Alas, the Haunted Portrait Creator seems to be biased towards non-androgynous humans, but despite its limitations this is a fairly decent rendition of The Six Handed Merchant:


    This was Six's attempt at a self-portrait, entitled "Portrait of a Correspondent", in the brief time before the canvas spontaneously combusted...

    Alexis has finished adding content to the December Beta. Further confirms that legacies won't just determine your starting situation, but also open up additional content. There will also be Sanskrit books in the Beta, so yay ^_^

    On Steam Lottie confirmed that the Guru role is being absorbed into the Magus role, hence Guru's absence from the production plan:

    Macramé wrote:
    The Magus role now incorporates the entire Guru role, because phagocytosis is cool. As AK mentions in that update (thank god), these roles are essentially thematically-coherent sets of activities and lore facilitating a Magus-y style of play. The Guru role slid closer and closer into the Magus's until it made more sense to combine 'em then keep them apart.

    Presumably the Explorer and Ghoul roles have also been likewise combined (as ghoul means tomb robber and explorers can easily be tomb robbers).

    Anyway, most of the magic and occult society features won't be completed until February.

    Lastly, a new follower profile:



    He looks cute.

    No time like the present to discuss pertinent matters. How many Echoes is your property insured for?

    Also, does anyone else find this appropriate (accidental, probably, but oh, so appropriate) to be announced on the day we get [redacted] from the Advent Calendar?


    We have so many NPCs in Fallen London. The Intense Notary. The Panicked Solicitor. The Melancholy Curate. But what we haven't had was an insurance broker! I'd go with the Imperturbable Broker, myself.

    I was mistaken I apologize profusely. Just the options in the Finishing School and the Opportunity Card. Sorry.

    Wait, what option unlocks on the Capering Relicker's card?


    One of the gifts...I can't recall what they specifically give you. Most of the earlier fate stories open some option.



    I'm pretty sure you're confusing The Gift's cards with the Capering Relicker ending to Trade in Faces.

    I doubt that it's Salt - Stone is actually in the Presbyterate, and is the reason they live such long lives. If there's any power they've allied with, it's Stone.

    They've certainly allied with Stone in some fashion, but she's not the power under discussion. A quote from Sunless Sea refers to the Presbyterate making a treaty with another power long before the Bazaar ever came to the Neath. We don't know why the White would have sent Salt there before the Bazaar arrived, and we don't know if Stone could have arrived in the Neath before the Bazaar ever entered, but without better evidence it still probably refers to Salt.

    30 pails? Really? What's the math behind this?

    Up to now I thought 15 pails would be plenty?

    You can get 3 Noman's Friend per point of Taste of Lacre through the Noman's Progress card. That's 9 NF per pail.

    As of last year, you needed ~350 NF to make it until mid February for the tattoo, and that's with waiting until the third week of January to create the Noman.

    Given that you start with 100 NF, you need ~250 more. 15 Pails would get you 135 more, which is not enough.

    28 Pails would put you over 350 total, but we don't know if everything's the same this year.

    "Well, the Neath is a curious place with loopholes for such laws, so I don't plan on dying. If for nothing else, because I fear death more than I'd embrace it. Were I forced to choose, though, I'd have to go with those icy moths from the Colonies. I would want some part of me to live on, and what better way than as something known for its morbid beauty?"

    Now, for my fellow zailors. Of all the places you have set sail to so far, which would you say have been the most enjoyable to visit?

    "That depends on your definition of 'enjoyable'. I'm fond of Port Carnelian, it's a lovely blend London tradition and foreign culture that I find refreshing. The Court of the Wakeful Eye is also a warm hearth away from home, a nice vacation spot from time to time for profit and intrigue. And while the journey there wasn't enjoyable per se, well...making my first and last trip North was quite the relief. I'd most likely go with Port Carnelian, though they all have something to experience."

    I'd personally love getting into an rp server, so count me interested. Like others in this thread, I may not be an active voice in chat 24/7, but I'll make an effort to interact when I can.

    Fun fact, an ecdysiast is literally a strip-tease artist . "What may be lost?"

    The book-burning striptease nightmare from FL is, perhaps, along these lines.

    HL Mencken’s ecdysiasts aside, ‘ecdysis’ is a term mainly used by entomologists. I’m not sure where all this divesting and peeling will end up but I wonder if the the ‘moth-ness’ of Moth lore is perhaps more than metaphorical. After all, that moth on The Moth card has human hands. Also, there's this:



    IN GIRUM IMUS NOCTE ET CONSUMIMUR IGNI

    Which means “By night we go into the gyre, wherein we are consumed by fire”. Kind of. For a palindromic riddle, it’s impressively lengthy. Anyway, the answer won’t startle any CS enthusiasts.

    A few days ago, I had used 2 Pails of So-Called Snow to raise my ToL to 4. Today I chose to get an Incandescent Robe over a fresh new Pail. What I didn't know was that obtaining the Robe gave me 2 points of ToL for a total of 6, getting rid of my chance to raise the quality to 8 with my Monocle. This would have been unfortunate enough, but the difference of 2 points meant that I lost 2 Tears of the Bazaar instead of 1 while raising ToL. Not the worst failure I've had, but certainly not the best.

    Thank you for answering my question. I'll just wait right before they switch out stories to get a subscription, and see if the Christmas story is worth it based on other people's responses.
