So apologies for my ignorance, but are the Stiff-Backed Young Lady and the Gentleman of Undisclosed Business supposed to be the Last Constable and the Cheery Man, respectively?

Yup.

As for me, I'm wondering whether the Profoundly Educated Gentleman and his counterpart are meant to be recognised, or if they're exactly what they appear to be and nothing more?

They are the Provost of Summerset and Mrs. Plenty, respectively.

if you side with the Constable, have the Stiff-Backed Young Lady, and the Constable perishes, you get her Cudgel and a companion identical to the young lady called "A Melancholic Remembrance of the Stiff-Backed Young Lady".

This reminds me: I've never seen what is the Cheery Man's equivalent of this.

EDIT: never mind: found it.

Speaking of these, does this mean that if you first complete the story (with no companion) and then go to get your Feast reward, you'll only get the heirlooom but no Rememberance/Absence? That's interesting.


I completed the story with neither companion & the Remembrance/Absence is not open to me. Only the cane.

Thanks for confirming, Dudebro Pyro. Just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing anything.

Which begs the question, why aren't the actual Lost Constable & Cheery Man portraits used? They are so great, and they're far better (and unique) compared to these shadowed silhouette versions which to me are ordinary. No character compared to the actual portraits.

Would be great if FB would update them from the shadowed versions to the originals.

Going to assume there was no mistake that allowed those already with a GoUB/SBYL to get the other of the two, was there?

I still have yet to leave the lock.
I’m have a mild dilemma here.


Also, would anyone happen to know where I can find someone willing to give up their making waves?
I spent so long debating over my decision it seems I’ve fallen from a notability of 10 to 7.

Afraid not, and if you got one of them last year and swapped sides this year, you're stuck with whichever one you got.

I'm not sure I understand you correctly. Your request seems to undermine what you're trying to prevent, so let's clarify the mechanics:
  • Each week, Time the Healer will remove one point of Notability, *if* your Notability is higher than your Making Waves.
  • So, with your Notability of 4, as long as you have at least 4 MW, your Notability is safe for this week. If your MW drops to 3 or less by the time that TtH comes, you'll lose Notability.
  • Being invited by someone to Dante's will indeed significantly decrease your MW (by 100 CP - enough to go from MW 13 to 0).

How effective even is Dante’s inferno anyways?


But anyways, I’m gonna guess of the non-fate gifts; the decanter is the easiest to stockpile?
And if I’m correct then where would you say I’d find the best exchange of Amanita Sherries per action?

It transfers 100 CP of MW from one person (who is not POSI, and thus doesn't need MW or Notability) to another in one action. Can be repeated 5 times a week (limited by having a Free Evening). If you have such an acquaintance, it's very effective. Of course, if the person being invited has less than 100 CP of MW, only what they have will be transferred.

What do you mean by "easiest to stockpile"? You can stockpile all Feast gifts as much as you want, as long as someone sends them to you.

Hi! Looking for unlimited (for now) non-Fate-locked exchange, as well as two 10'ish Fate-locked gifts. For Fate-locked, please call me by private message in advance though, just to be sure.

Phrased that increadably poorly.
I ment that I was guessing it would be the easiest to quickly build up resources for to send off on mass.
I’m reconsidering that now.
What do you generally send the most of?

Also, I’m accepting gifts. And if anyone is interested in fate gift trading, hit me up!

I just want to ask if the Lady in Lilac will be pinned.

I have not found her once in the past two days.

Now, I know this may be the RNG hating me with a passion, but my fear is I'll have no chance to get the companions on my Encounters card before the festival ends.

Starting to get the feeling that all such cards will end up pinned stories. Making them cards offers a thrill for very active players and the joy of finding new things.
Some may not consider this fair, but I find it very attractive! Oki, I am active so I'll flip cards non stop, but if I log in once a day so I'll just use the story at the end being aware that everything is discovered.

I think it would be less discouraging if either turning in gifts or getting a companion wasn't card-based. Or if increasing masquing wasn't card-based. Or if masquing wasn't locked to certain levels without fate.

Because I'm having to get masquing up to 20 by free means, then to 30 with gifts, then add fate stuff on top. This takes a great number of cards, and it's DEEPLY FRUSTRATING that the whole grind is put on hold for more than a day now because I can't draw the damn sunset card to turn it in. It's levels of grinding/card drawing hell.

I think that the Encounter & Lilac cards are pinned next week after the Feast is over. Although, that still doesn't help us with the Feast card now to gain the Masquing that we need - to the above post.
