Not having an item attached at the end of the grind was, in my opinion, a blunder.

Like many other useless grinds! smile

But it does bring a joy, doesn't it? smile

I too am now a Poet-Laureate. What a spectacularly useless achievement.

Seriously, if my name is in the papers for weeks, you'd think I'd at least get some MW.

Eh, I'm sad that there isn't a reward for it, but at the same time, this is something I'm just increasing as I go about my own business (that business being writing correspondence symphonies over and over for SotC.)

At least I'm getting rich while I'm at it.

Oh, it is a fun grind. And I did not mind getting nothng for Courier's footrpint, as there was nothing to be had. But achieving such an honour and not even getting MW or the actual wreath of laurels did not make sense at all. I did not miss the item per se, but it does diminsh the narative.

I am doing this grind right now, and apparently this no longer zeroes your "fine piece" quality if you have excess (went from 8 to 1 when 7 was required)

Apparently it never actually zeroed AFP - it just subtracted one more than required. Fortunately it's fixed now.

Add another one to the list of Poet-Laureates. Who know the gateway to fame and fortune among London's artistic societies was a a lot of ballets about tigers?

Poet-Laureate. How underwhelming. But at least I will have some more tiger companions soon.

Yes, they do, not that that's very useful, IMHO.

the long works come in handy a few times, you can use a patriotic adventure to give to Mr. Sacks, and the odes to the elder continent can be exchanges for tribute, albeit less efficiently than poems.

Take heart, stout fellows. It'll probably show up as a quality-gate in one or two few future storylets or exceptional stories to give you a bit of extra lore or flavor text when progressing.

Grind completed, laurels won.

It is a pity that this isn't even a possible condition to get London's Blood (just as SotC 21 is for London's Nerves). It would be more fitting than Committed, I think.

Not to necro a thread, and I apologize, but I started the grind back in January for the PL. Then once I capped that I had to stop that portion in March, grind my Society to 40, and my notability to 15. I am now, FINALLY, a Poet-Laureate. It got me nothing and I knew that was coming, but by Salt, I did it and I can finally add my name to the list.

Congratulations!
I must say the Carnelian ballet option has made the grind even better as you built tribute and work towards yet another insane goal!

Let’s put it this way... I may or may not have all four tigers.

My error was in not 'unlocking' the carnelian option - you can do a carnelian ballet prior to visiting the 5th coil, but naturally - you get no tribute from doing so.

Congratulations! I too reached the status of Laureate among poets a few days ago. Still hoping that they'll add an option to use it to the game. Like they did with SotC 21.
