Trying to send a second Betrayal Request while the first is outstanding yields a slightly jarring error message:



If the Betrayal Request has not been accepted or declined, it can be withdrawn for free. Each request takes 7 Actions though, which would be "wasted", in as much as anything is "wasted" on the Seeking Road.

Literally everything is wasted. It will bring you no benefit.

    Accelerated and less obviously produced by a bot. There could be a real human at the keyboard!

    God d__n it, I literally JUST came back to the Neath after a year's break after I saw Seeking through to the end, all excited to experience FL without the idea of going NORTH hovering over me all the time, and now Mr Eaten's twitter is all active and responding to people no less, and I'm so, so tempted to go NORTH a second time...

    I have a question about weeping scars.
    [spoiler] Does the option to remove them in flute street only show up if you aren't currently seeking the name? If not, where does it show up? [/spoiler]

    It only shows up if you don't have the Seeking Mr Eaten's Name quality.

    Would one recommend maxing stats before pursuing the name?

    I had the same thought and the short answer is no. Seeking the Name has some built in limiters that keep you from progressing too quickly so banking your stats & items beforehand is pointless, you're better off starting as soon as possible.

    It is by no means necessary. To accelerate Seeking, the main thing needed is absurd quantities of Appalling Secrets, Mourning Candles, and Searing Enigmas. There is around a 20-week incubation period from the start of Seeking to the point where it becomes to dominate gameplay, and that's plenty of time to gather everything you need to finish Seeking.

    There are a few advantages that high stats offer that can make Seeking easier, though; unlocking Bats and Cats in the Flit and high enough stats for Pygmalion in Mahogany Hall are effective for managing Unaccountably Peckish, for instance. However, this is primarily for characters who have already reached this point; it's still better to begin as soon as possible.

    BTW, this is a little late, but a note to all the people getting excited by the activity on the Mr Eaten twitter account, a few posts upthread: It's *probably* to do with the Cultist Simulator enigma, and not so much the SMEN storyline.

    I suggest raising Watchful as high as you can, and if you aren't at the base cap, have inventory modifiers on hand, as you'll need it as Seeking progresses.


    [spoiler]You need Watchful 200 to progress on Winking Isle. The other stats don't matter.[/spoiler]

    Thanks to all who answered. I've been neglecting my alt so I will take a small break from answering the call of hunger to upping my Watchful. There are other avenues I'd like to complete anyhow.

    Well. I acquired St Gawain's Candle... but there's a bug currently in FL that seems to trigger when auto-moving to a new area: it fast-forwards the storylet result so that it appears but disappears immediately afterward (I don't get to see anything, it happens in a blink). The location banner changes so I know I've moved to Lodgings, but I get sent back to the previous storylet (the one where I'm about to choose who to sacrifice for St Gawain's). Which is itself unplayable because I've technically already played it, and clicking Go again doesn't take me to any story outcome, but shunts me to the Seeking Road choices in Lodgings.


    Words can't describe how supremely frustrated I am that I didn't get to see or save the storylet outcome of St Gawain's Candle, and missed finding out what items/qualities I get in the process.... all because of a bug. Could someone please PM me the text or a screenshot of it, as well as the item/quality changes, that trigger with the outcome? (While we're at it, if you have the storylet text for all the 3 potential choices/outcomes for St Gawain's Candle, I'd love to see them all too.)

    Many, many thanks!!! UPDATE: Done, big thank you to Parvorus.
