So the ideal plan is to horde pails until the wicket opens, buy stuff, use pails to restock PTPT and go again?

If you need a rather high level to get upgraded lodgings it would probably be best to use your pails to get PtPT as high as you can through reliable methods (dipping a soul or using a Semiotic Monocle with Scholar of the Correspondence 10+), then wait for the advent calendar to give you its customary +1 PtPT, and then let The Twelve Days do its work to push the number just as high as you need it. Or one point higher if you're out of pails and need to buy more from the urchins (which requires already having PtPT 1+). Then you could use pails to build up PtPT again, and resume The Twelve Days to build it up further.

But if you don't need more than 5 PtPT in one go, you can indeed just hoard the pails and use them when you're running low. Particularly with the Semiotic Monocle and Scholar of the Correspondence 10+. Though perhaps there is one time during Christmas when you only get +1 PtPT if you don't already have any? I'm not sure. Remembering stuff like that is what the wiki is for.

Let me add the menaces "areas" which aren't that bad, but it does consume some AP. Indeed, Flint is the best thing out there and the longest!
You usually need 50-100 Mysteries of the Elder Continent and about 25-50 Presbyterate Passphrase; even less as those can be grinded.

List of rare materials you can grind:

[spoiler]In Apis Meet you can grind the required resources if you want to farm the rare ones (Knob of Scintillack, Carved Ball of Stygian Ivory) without any problem.

In Caution you can trade these if you want:
4 Mysteries of the Elder Continent = 1 x Presbyterate Passphrase, 1 x Royal-Blue Feather
Zee-Ztory = 3 x Mystery of the Elder Continent, 1 x Deep-zee Catch
Vision of the Surface = 3 x Mystery of the Elder, 1 x Moves in the Great Game
Tale of Terror!! = 3 x Mystery of the Elder Continent, 1 x Solacefruit

One other thing: are any of the Mr. Sacks investigations worthwhile, mechanically or storywise?

A miniature kettle, black tea leaves and a really small cup. For emergency tea time.

I will -- but it's a card first to make your acquaintance, I believe. Unless it happens we are acquainted already? All this mushroom wine has addled by memory...

Okay -- you come up as "that character does not exist", and your link on here just leads to the log-in page. Please feel free to send me a calling card to start the process.

I remember a couple of years back, there was a competition for Starveling Cat verses -- I didn't manage to get involved at the time, but maybe we could do it again? There were some really funny and gruesome efforts.

You can feed "snow" to a wild boar through a very difficult Dangerous challenge if you have a Dread Surmise, which can bring it up to 16. The Twelve Days can probably push it even higher.

That's what I did my first Christmas, before I knew that it would all just be spent like a currency, and that reaching a really high level wasn't really worth it, considering how it isn't particularly cost effective. But I suppose it was fun at the time to read each new subtitle for the level of the quality.

It's worth noting that the Rat of Glory can only activate if you choose to use it, so your horde of candles is safe, Airomir.


This is good information. I think there's a pervasive fear by many that it could activate at random while sitting idle in your inventory. I had interpreted that as a possibility based upon the text.

In fairness, this is the first non-paywalled source for Royal-Blue Feathers and a welcome surprise to see the Valkyrie (or at least an imitator).


Agreed. I enjoyed the brief nod to the main character from one of the most endearing ESs. And Royal Blue Feathers are rare!

A small very pair of scissors that can be fixed to the wrist and hidden and, when skillfully wielded, can secretly remove a strand of someone's hair... this has a use somehow I'm sure.

The Starveling cat! The Starveling cat! It lives in the smock, and that's that!

A compartment that is actually a "pocket" dimension *ahem* for holding all the books you need.

A map of 4308 pockets. After all, what’s the point if you don’t where the tools are, the false backs, the trapped pockets for pickpockets, the little bottle of goggle polishing fluid...

I like all the short Starveling cat... poems? I can't claim to know much about them but I do want to see what other people think of.

You can also use Starveling Kitty!

The Starveling Cat! The Starveling Cat! It'll catch rats, but never any bats!

A Smock Of 4,308 Pockets inside, clearly.
Also a pocket-compass, a compass meant to fit in a pocket and that points to the correct pocket that has the thing you want. There are several of these to increase you chances of finding it.

That’s short term; the small liberation. After the large one there won’t be death, or gravity, or anything of that sort.

That's why, even as an anarchist, I have no love for the Liberation.
What happens after the liberation is three giant question marks that are cloaked in a mystery, shrouded in enigmas, filled with secrets, and spilling forth an unstoppable flood of hints, nudges, and theories.

I liked it when London was on the surface and will do anything to get it back there should I have the opportunity, but a primordial chaos that would have every inconceivable eldritch being that has ever been conceived running for the hills?

No thanks, I'll take my mourning candles from the box carousel instead.

Lukeskylicker will soon embrace the storm!

(I just got 'A dream about the mist' after nearly two months of pulling cards. I love the WtTS dreams and I'm looking forward to... a new perspective.)
