Savage Spectacular Suicide: Wounds 48 Messages in this topic - RSS

Having zailed further across the Unterzee than any other*, only one worthy voyage was left to me: The River.

Not as exciting as the last mission: I just found an uncapped Wounds source in a place you can't die and clicked the same button many times. And it looks like Failbetter patched this, since today I was sent to the boatman long before reaching my goal of 77.

Continuing the worst tradition of all time, I missed the October Exceptional Story unlock to do this stupid failed stunt.

(The mantelpiece item is the ghost of a long-dead bug, just seemed appropriate to include at this moment when I am perhaps the weirdest profile in all fallen London.)

*Believe not the slanderous "evidence" from a thousand Admiralty vessels who claim I spent a year zailing in circles.

does it not encourage you to do other absurd stunts?

It's either this or Seeking, so I'd say you're doing me a favour.

Absurdly high wounds would be a nice place to hide an Easter Egg, but I'm assuming you didn't find anything?

Either way, congratulations on being so impressively dead smile

Yeah, I think I saw you in the Achievements thread when I was deciding whether to do this mad thing. I'm pretty upset about getting kicked out before even getting a record, let alone the nice Eaten number of 77, but hey, zombie high five.

EDIT: @Anna, yeah, nothing so far. I haven't started the long climb back to the living yet, but as you can see I'm not the first to do something like this.

Btw, did you use the Iron Republic or another method? It would be really sad if it was no longer possible to raise menaces infinitely in the IR...

I used the "examine the machine" option in the Trial and Error exceptional story.

Failbetter explains why I died: "The storylet you were playing wasn't Must urgency, just a normal storylet which happened to link back on itself. As such, doing basically anything other than playing a branch would cause you to fall out of the storylet and run into the Wounds Must autofire; I can't tell exactly how it happened, but using an item or hitting Perhaps Not are fairly likely causes."

I think someone invited me to a wedding and I poked around my inventory looking for a nonexistent invitation item.

But now that I sent them an email about it, the Wounds quality for that storylet has been capped.

I know falling on the sword of my own stupidity is kind of the point of these stunts to begin with, but the @$#@ ES unlock system makes it so much worse.

Depending on how precise your tastes are, there might be a new wedding you can go to a month from now.
