Oh, thanks for the info.

Whoa, man... +3 Bizarre? I know that there are companions with better BDR (*bleat-ROAR*), but that's a rather quick way to get a high BDR companion with FATE.

I just want to say here that the Cider, the doubling of cards from moving from one place with unique card draws and back, gawping at the Labyrinth of Tigers and Hearts's Mirror at the Carnival is a hella easy way to fatten up the Noman. Big Grin

Uh, did someone join the Cider club recently? I know you are pursuing it!

Oh yes, several of my characters have, close to four years since they were made.

Multiple characters with Cider? Frigging congratulations, mate; probably took a lot of patience! Are they... official or hidden?

Thanks, but patience? Oh, no. I resorted to a lot of wiki-referring, and I know a few exploits to accelerate the grind, most of which had been closed by Failbetter, or just rendered obsolete.

Oh yeah, they are all Seeking now - had been for a while, but unfortunately not in time for Christmas to betray a whole bunch of Noman.

EDIT: Oh wait, did I say "less than four years?". Checking back on some message and email archives, I actually started playing back in 2015, so it's less than 3 years.

From skimming through the thread, I take it that we don't know when buckets will melt or when the Wicket will become permanently closed this year. Am I correct in that, or mistaken? I ask because I'm hoping to wait on making my Noman so as to skip out on unnecessary Friend loss, and I can't do anything else I want to in the Wicket until I can dump off my current ToL on my Noman buddy.

You might want to get a Noman by Jan 15 or Jan 16 for this year.

Presumably, those are the dates when the price for the Noman peaks.

How do you figure?

(FYI - the Noman still costs 5 ToL as of today. I doubt it will reach the peak of costing 15 ToL in 4-5 days)

Oh, yeah... Whoops.

I keep mixing up the ToL increases with the day periods. It should be ToL +2 after every three days right?

Also, likely due to the lag and requests by players like me, the first cost phase has been extended to four days (last Friday, Saturday, Sunday and most of Monday). I recall that my characters purchased Noman at a cost of ToL 5 from Tuesday onwards.

Why can you still buy Pails of Snow via the urchin card? I thought this stops when it is no longer snowing?

When will the pails melt? As soon as the wicket closes? Later?

It's possible. However, note that the original note on the wiki was incorrect. Other than possibly in the very early years of the festival, the ToL changes haven't come in *exactly* 3 day periods in several years. So fluctuations have been expected and may have been pre-planned and not necessarily due to player feedback.

Is there any way now to get pails of unusual snow besides the Urchins card? I've been trying for two weeks and still haven't drawn it, and only need one more pail to get the last five-card Lodgings... >.<

Urchins only at this point, yeah. You can force a draw with a Favourable Circumstance but that's hella expensive if you don't already have one (costs 7 notability or 8 fate).

If you already have a Noman, you can get another pail that way, if you're particularly heartless (and willing to give up on the Elemental Secret).

Aw, fudge, thanks anyway upset It looks like I'm trying to grind notability up enough to get Favourable Circumstances then!

When do the "Experiencing Strange Times: Twelve Days of Mr Sacks" cards lock? I've got a character who completed Day 2 and hasn't drawn Day 3 in a week+. Am I locked out of the Wicket for the year, or just getting temporarily hosed by the RNG?

    The cards never lock. The wicket, however, locks after Jan 31st. So, you still have all of January left to complete your Sacksmas business wink

    And yes, the RNG seems particularly hateful atm. I've trouble drawing those Sacks cards, too. 'Ubiquitous frequency' haha :P

    I thought the Urchins had stopped selling lacre by now? I no longer see an option.
