I've only noted 28 Cider holders, but I'm sure there are more I don't know about. Not everyone uses the forum.
I found one on Tumblr on accident.

No doubt there are. However, the point still holds; if anything, Cider owners (which all but presumes long-term, invested players) are likely over-represented among forum users.

Wow, so many new Cider owners... and yet I feel as though I will never get there. DX

Prehaps we need a new bigger goal now it seems to be becoming a bit more main stream?

New ridiculous goal: feed Cider to seven Heptagoats and try to combine them into a Nonquadragoat. Almost certainly a colossal waste of time, but then again, you never know.

I propose a simpler goal: two Ciders.

Because if combining goats does things, maybe mixing your drinks will too!

As for next level goals after getting Cider, I've been working on what I call the Trifecta of Hard to Gather Items - Cider, Heptagoat, and the Seven-fold Knock. Each grind takes about 1-3 years from what I can tell.

If you devote all your time to it, the Knock would only take a month or two at most. (At least if you're doing it on an existing account so don't have to grind Watchful to 200 or get a boat or deal with other requirements.)

How do you get SMEN to Winking Isle levels this fast?

I assume that since Optimatum specified no need to "deal with other requirements" that the assumption is you have enough resources to burn Appalling Secrets all the way to SMEN 21. (actually, you'll only need to get this way to SMEN 13 and use UP cards each week after that to meet the two month estimate).

I meant more major things like having a Daughter in the Shadows or seven Enigmas for the Calling Card. Miscellaneous resources count too though, I suppose. I was basing my estimate on veteran Seekers going NORTH in under a month of the content's release (with minor Fate wheels-greasing and some delays for content to be released) and approximately doubled it.

On the difficulty of obtaining the knock, with no fate (or EF membership) I've been able to take a character from creation to the gate in about 4 months. You have to be pretty aggressive and efficient in your action usage and you'll need to borrow a calling card for Winking Isle and find people to betray for that first candle, but it's easily done in under a year if you really dedicate yourself to it.

I started with a new account, spent no fate, had appalling luck with appalling secrets, betrayed only two people for Arthur, took the notability path for Destin's, and still managed to do it in about five months. I think seeking itself only took 2-3 months; the rest of it was just getting the character useful.

AT LAST.

Well not really, since I won't actually buy the Cider for about a month. I have Science to do first.

Optimatum, my congratulations!

>>>and find people to betray for that first candle

With access codes (9 cups of coffee) it takes less than a hour to create new account and raise watchful to 30.

Hardest part for rich character is requirements for Winking Isle. You lose huge amounts of useful materials and echos on conversion.
