All right! That character's gone.

I just got done with Seeking after a long, long detour. I picked the Salt question; could someone PM me with the others? I'd be much obliged.

Another question: Is there a reddit or something similar where people who've gone NORTH discuss it all? I know we're encouraged not to share here. Thanks!

Call me a fool, but why would you want to reset Renown? The only thing I can think of is favours at the carnival.

Mechanically, Renown gain past 15 is the best way to manipulate quirks. I don't have an immediate goal for those right now, but if I ever decided I wanted to max out certain ones, and raising Renown was not feasible anymore, it would be a huge, gigantic pain. I don't know if I'll ever actually want to do that, but getting to Beau's is easy with some patience, whereas after that option locks Renown becomes literally permanent and there's absolutely no way to change my mind afterwards.

Story-wise, I enjoy the idea of having all the tokens of highest recognition by the various factions while being totally unknown to them. As well as, in general, the concept of being an extremely late-game character with immeasurable wealth, unique artifacts from the edges of the world, and even achievements such as being Poet-Laureate or long-term well-loved Governor - and yet having no connections whatsoever.
Unfortunately, a few things require some renown/connected (such as 1882 wine in Ladybones, or more importantly the Masters suspicion bail to make sure I can keep my record clean if I ever mess up), and I probably won't be willing to give those up, so I might not achieve my goal of being absolutely unknown in London. But being tangentially known to a few factions is still better than being a modern historical figure to a dozen.

I actually just gave up my lodgings to Beau this Christmas to get rid of the early-game cards, haha.

I'm still looking for these too. I wonder if the ones who've been retired for a while might not come back here often...

I know there's at least a few people who have experienced some or even all of the endings using alts, and are still quite active. (Don't look at me, I haven't gone even once yet.) Most people get an answer quite promptly.

I do come back from time to time (ok, almost everyday). I'm ok to share the endings, feel free to ask me in pm. But if you do ask me, I'd like for you to show me proof that you've, at least once, finished SMEN.

I've PM'd both LouBlue and Flynneldariel, and can also assist those who haven't received an answer yet. Feel free to PM me as well, though as our friend above me said, proof of completing SMEN would be nice.

Gone NORTH, asked about Salt. Would greatly appreciate someone sharing the other endings with me... and an explanation as to what just happened.

So I'm playing through Where You and I Must Go, and I've got to say that the feeling of reading (almost) the exact same text as KING OF WAYS on my screen was incredibly eerie. Major props to FBG for that.

Is it possible to complete the storyline without going to Winking Isle?

Yes. Will it be easier? Not in the slightest. Details below the spoiler.

[spoiler]

You can always raise SMEN through the Seeking Road by sacrificing Appalling Secrets, Mourning Candles, and/or Searing Enigmas. This is an extremely expensive task, especially towards the end. For instance, the final step from SMEN 76 to SMEN 77, if done by drowning secrets, would cost 5,852 Appalling Secrets (worth nearly 900 Echoes) to attempt, and the challenge would have a base difficulty of 1,520 Watchful. That means that the highest currently possible Watchful, including a Mood (Watchful 327) would only give a 12% chance of success, with the secrets lost either way. So this is fairly impractical for high levels, but it works well for an early push before the costs scale too high.

Some Exceptional Stories also have the potential to increase SMEN. "The Chimney Pot Wars", for instance, can increase SMEN by 1 in one ending. This, however, would demand a substantial investment of money, and it's fairly financially irresponsible.

Furthermore, depending on your definition of "going to Winking Isle", there's the option of the lighthouse, which is, in my opinion, the most reasonable choice if one tries to avoid fasting and meditating on Winking Isle. This essentially involves grinding out St Destin's Candle over and over again through Notability and then bringing it to the lighthouse. The challenge here is the gap between SMEN 29 and unlocking Destin at SMEN 35, which requires use of the aforementioned techniques.

To add, the first three candles before Destin's also give SMEN, so the challenge is rather between SMEN 29 and SMEN 32 (give or take one SMEN either way, it's been a while since I counted it exactly).

I just finished the storyline and chose the "What is due?" ending. Would others who have dared to come this far be willing to share the other endings? I can share mine with anyone gracious enough to do so.
