I shared dream of skies untainted with Mr. Sacks and lost a level of Persuasive. Being Paramount Presence, I won’t be able to restore it any time soon.

Yep. I did it. Not being used to 5 cards yet, I accidentally clicked the wrong spot and discarded a carefully-husbanded mood card.

I wanted to take advantage of this holiday by getting a Soothe and Copper Long Box since I intend to get rid of my lodgings in the near future. However, I messed up and accidentally sold it to the Bazaar, depriving me of that metaquality!

On top of that, I accidentally used up my remaining lacre to artificially lengthen my Noman's life, so I have to use up my remaining pails to get the long box instead of the second Noman I've been gunning for. Losing out on a potential 300 echoes is already making me salty thinking about it...

Well I could scream.

Decide to play around with a heist, content I’ve never done. Fail to realise failing a heist leads straight to jail, losing my spotless record. Decide ‘that’s okay, I’ll experience some new content while I’m here!’ The very first card I play reduces my overcapped persuasive to 214. I am 3/4 of the way to Paramount Presence. Now I either have to do a truly awful grind again after being so happy about leaving it behind, or be stuck forever with a persuasive of 214.

There are times when one could get very cross with this game.

When you had the persuasive of 215, did you do the "London's Blood" storylet with the Ambitious Barrister?
If you did that already, you need not achieve the 215 again for persuasive. That task is done.
You don't need every stat to be 215 at the same time.

I am aware of that - the fact remains if I want to regain 215 persuasive (which I had planned to retain, forsaking the Nadir) I must repeat a horrible grind so that I can change my specialistion back to legendary charisma and then experience the unbridled joy that is reaching N15. Again. I don’t think I did anything last year in FL except grind notability. If I choose not to do this before finishing PP I will be stuck at 214 until who knows when since there’s currently no mechanism for Paramounts to overcap.

Sincere apologies if this comes over as grumpiness dirrcted at you - I’m afraid my tolerance for ‘months of extremely tedious and horrifically boring effort being wiped out for a stupid reason’ has worn wafer thin. It is not my first go on this particular rodeo.

I really hate having to quadruple check the wiki before I even breathe. I suppose I should be grateful that this liberates me from having to care about the other stats.

Grind(ed?) enough Making Waves for the next Notability level just shy a few hours before TtH hits. Goes to Lodgings to force-pull the Amanuensis card. Distractedly went to a wrong storylet and used instead 7 Notability for A Favourable Circumstance. Oops.

Not that bummed since my Notability wasn't that high to begin with but what on earth am I supposed to do with this thing?

In my experience, you just hold onto it for a million years until you need to draw the wine tradein card for a grind.

This thread is so terrifying that I installed the whitelist that prevents you from discarding important cards.

Two biggest failures: I smashed the kidnapped heiress turned into clay and I still feel bad about it. And I misclicked and sold out an orphan's kids parents and now they are dead.
