I lost 101 x Noman's Friend this Wednesday. Currently, I have 75 left and 7 ToL to raise my Noman's Friend to a 96 in the hopes that it will be enough to stave off death, but it also just so happens that Lilac comes around the same day as Time the Healer does for me. If I play the storylet early enough, I'll hopefully be able to complete my Noman-related actions for the Feast hours before they melt. Wish me luck!

Sine you have 6 days until the next TtH, and Lilac is due on the 12th (in 4 days) you might be just fine (unless she's delayed...)

Heartiest congratulations to those who have saved their melty friend long enough to get its likeness on your meat. I still find the story heartbreaking and have sworn to never revisit its cruelty.

as of half hour ago TtH has hit "You've lost 96 x Noman's Friend (new total 232 - The Noman is pristine)." I might keep my noman around for another week for the science since it isnt in any danger but I am not liking having one card slot blocked by noman card.

I lost 106 Noman's Friend today.

Does anyone know if it is possible to actually keep your Noman all year? I imagine it isn’t, due to steadily ramped-up melt rates if anything, and there probably isn’t content for Nomen who actually do make it all year like they say when you get your tattoo… But what if there is?

    It's probably mechanically possible so long as you have a sufficiently absurd number of Tears of the Bazaar, but it's not likely that anyone can actually get that many Tears without spending a ton of Fate on action refreshes and wine grinding/archaeology, which is essentially an expensive cheat code. I don't know of anyone who's kept a noman for more than a couple of months; even NiteBrite only managed to get to about mid-March back in '15.

    Someone asked this question (about keeping a Noman alive until next Christmas) about a month ago, so I decided to do the math. Here's the post in question along with the results:

    Some of last year's participants exceeded NB's mid-March, but not sure about who kept their Noman alive the longest.
    And yesterday, 13th of February, around 23:00 GMT I lost 119 NF. Got my second tattoo and a Gant one two days again! Yay, Nomaaaan!

    Didn't someone (NiteBrite? or perhaps not) keep a Noman for pretty much all year by stuffing it on a boat and sailing to the middle of nowhere?

    Somebody did that, but that method doesn't work anymore as far as I'm aware - I tried bringing a Noman with me beyond the Gate, but it melted on Mutton Island while I was grinding Stormy-Eyed.
