You can use the "Cats..." option in the flit to chat with your horrifying friend for 3 Unaccountably Peckish.

Thus, 1 essentially free SMEN.

That's not the only way to gain Unaccountably Peckish for the cards, but it's certainly the easiest and most reliable.


You are truly a hero of those wishing uttermost destruction upon themselves and therefore you should be heartily commended - or thrown into a pit and your name cursed thricefold, depending on your sensibilities of course.

Pay attention to those black-border cards. Some can raise SMEN higher than others. Some have greater cost to raise SMEN than others (in fact, some have no cost). And some are easier to discard if you want another one.

Once you've gotten mired in the marshes for the week, the first coil of the Labyrinth of Tigers allows you to take refreshment. For 50 Jade and a Dangerous challenge, you'll either gain or lose Wounds but you'll definitely lose Unaccountably Peckish. That's handy for the rest of the week, when you don't want to draw a bunch of those black-border cards that will mostly inflict harm for no good reason. Even Seekers can know better than to seek suffering when it brings them no closer to The Name.

I will add that "Take some refreshment" makes it quite easy to control that Menace quality; min-max this together with the Starveling Cat option in the Flit to get the card that you want.

P.S. You will want the cards that unlock at Unaccountably Peckish 7, 8 and 9 by the way. They have options that have no costs whatsoever.

I strongly suggest doing the Cider grind first. The Cider makes St. Arthur's Candle laughably easy, and with the Cider, money is no longer an issue; the player character gains valuable stuff as he/she heals anyway.

The Cider grind is many, many times longer than all of SMEN, starting from a new character, and you have to spend more money than you will ever need for anything else.

Well, after getting the Cider, there is really nothing else to spend money on - it's the pinnacle already. (There is the Heptagoat, but that involves FATE, and the kid's useless for now.)
