A family can be a model, a jewel-thief, a Snuffer, a very expensive Rubbery Man, two mutually exclusive Revolutionaries, and several players. If Failbetter would only let it.


I am 100% ok with this. Although i don't think the Model or the Jewel Thief like me anyone after our parting. I might need to find replacements. Assuming of course it would happen.

Just... let me get this straight:
There's only one (two, in a way) new NPC marriages and it's gated behind a 70 Fate wall?

To be fair, it's +2 BDR in a slot that previously only had a single BDR option, of 100 Fate for +3.
[...] it's not egregiously out of line with its predecessors.

It's less about the gain and more about the lack of content. For all I care my spouse could give -1 Respectable and the Marriage cost a dozen Searing Enigmas and Dreadful Surmises, and I'd still be happy about the occasional breakfast card.
Instead there is a single new spouse as option, which I am not even particularly fond of. The Missionary's great, don't get me wrong, and it's great they are giving people the option - but at the same time, if you like the Missionary / Firebrand you'll *have* to fork over about 20 bucks to get your flavortext.

What I am getting at is: I don't know how it's for others, but for me it's not about the stats, it's about the character and, if possible, about the story. That's why 4 new companions is... okay. By now I have 32 companions, with at least one for every stat at +8,+9 or +10 and +2 BRD - which is most likely about half of what a dedicated player has. New companions without story and lower stats are ... okay. Nothing more.

Oh and could please someone let me know what option at the Carnival has a rare chance to get Hedonist above 10? Thanks!

Enjoy the decadence rare success. Probably was unlucky, but last year I got 1 rare from 46 successes (that's 1 in 66 AP).

I can only send Singing Cards and Glasses of Teeth (each Masquing 1) since I've got no way to acquire any other payments quickly. But I'm definitely up for 1:1 trading!

Has anyone actually confirmed the Secular Missionary as a spouse option? I am quite contented in marriage to my Celebrated Model, and so presumably can't see if there is any storylet for the Missionary. I would hate to divorce the Model, only to see that in the spirit of Failbetter's penchant for asymmetrical gameplay she has been neglected.

Needless to say, if that were the case, I would be more than just a little heartbroken and envious of the Firebrand's happy partners, what with him even being arguably better than my Zubmarine gameplay-wise.

Edit: Oh, an I'm up for sending and accepting all the non-fate-locked gifts except the Chartreuse, though the 2-masquing ones I can only afford to send a few times.

Yes, the Secular Missionary is a potential spouse option after she's been renewed through Masquing.

Two years ago I chose "No tattoo at all" for the +1 Respectable bump and I'm kicking myself now that I'm trying to max out BDR in the quest for Paramount Presence. Can I pay fate to undo this and get a tattoo this year and a second next year? If so, where is the Tattoo Parlour? I don't see a storylet in the Forgotten Quarter or Ladybones Road.

Any assistance is much appreciated.

Does anyone know what the new Fate-locked companions will cost (assuming that 2 of the 4 new ones are Fate-locked)? Wasn't there just 2 new companions last year, Sister Lydia, who wasn't Fate-locked, and the Tempestuous Astronomer, which was?

Tattoos start next week, and I'm pretty sure you will be able to fate reset and get them.

Yes, I saw it on someone's mantelpiece. Though the new art is nice, it's very out of keeping with the rest of the pictures on our mantelpieces. They stick out like a sore thumb. I kinda wish FB would choose an art style and stick to it.

Still, things are pretty good if that's the worst thing I can find to complain about.

Yeah the updated art is nice but it does look super out of place, I understand wanting to redo the art but at least make it sorta similiar to the rest of the sites style
