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.

I saved up over 300 boxes to look for my soul which I had to sell in order to get the 5 card lodgings during Sackmas and was planning to get it right back.

Well, they're all gone and my soul is still nowhere to be seen.

Oh, I didn't know there was a soul-getting opportunity while zailing! The only other source I know (besides Fate) is the One's Public card.

If you engage in piracy when passing a ship in trouble you get a bundle with a value up to 300.

It's not as good as the 1:200 chances of One's Public, but at zee your deck is much smaller than in London, so you're more likely to draw the card you need.

Thank you, I will have to try that one out smile

I had never been to prison since my initial arrival. I am pleased to say my next visit was quite purposeful; the man dwelled in the deepest cell of New Newgate and does not wish to leave.

I was the most persuasive one could possibly be, courtesy of notability (overcap 215). Having never been to prison, I volunteered for bilge duty...

It is worth mentioning bilge duty can have ... Permanently deleterious effects on one's ability to persuade.

No, I do not have London's blood. And now it seems I will not have it for quite some time. Take heed, bilge rats.

Over 2000 actions spent on ~430 Noman shopping sprees and however Bundle of Oddities the Urchins would churn out over the whole of January, and my infernal contract remains buried somewhere.

Looks like I won't be entering the Forgotten Quarter for some time yet.

Low risk challenge to rob the Bazaar after some time grinding Casing. Fail, skyrocket Suspicion to ten, waste a ton of actions getting out again.

--
Main, Phiri Ulfur, the Cunning Shadow. Their heart belongs to a Pirate-Poet across the Zee.
Alt Vermillion Liminate, the Tragic Scholar.
Alt #2,Lady Jacqueline Blackwood, the Savage Beauty.
Alt #3, Veracity Taylor, the Dame of the Docks.
The Dogged Seeker, self explanatory.

I will accept any social actions on Fallen London(unless its a box of live rats. I already got rid of the d---ned things once and am not eager to repeat the endeavor.) PLEASE send anything that will give Making Waves, I will repay with almost anything. Notability grinding is monstrous.

I chose the Widow as my most admired criminal mastermind, because she was the only one I'd heard of at the time, only to discover I don't like her at all. I wish I could go back and pick the Topsy King instead.
(On the plus side, I've finally managed to cancel my association with the Cheesemonger. Good riddance.)
