I had a weird problem just now.

In the Labyrinth of Tigers, resident in the Dripstone Snared Temple, I was unable to draw cards. Cards were greyed out rather than brownish. I subsequently went to the Nadir (cards okay there), changed to five-card lodging and went to a party (cards okay there, too).

I spend a lot of time in the five-card -- have I missed restrictions on the Temple / in the Labyrinth? Or should I be reporting this to support?

Hum, think it's 2+ weeks so the minimum will be 3 TtH. Never though if it's possible, with right timing, to need only 2 visits.
Will try and note down the dates of this year for future records.



If you dates are correct (Wicket close 31.1 and parlour opens 13.2) , and if you TtH comes on thursdays, then is possible next situation (this year): wait for TtH on 31.1. , then by Noman AFTER that. Next TtH is on 7.2. (one and only "Noman friend" hit), then go to the parlour on 13.2 and get tatoo. Next TtH is on 14.2. but you already have Noman picture on your hand.
That is only ONE TtH hit !!!

The Feast of the Exceptional Rose is active for one full week before the tattoo parlor opens. I've never seen the Wicket close and the Feast open back-to-back, but even if they did the only opportunity is if FBG is a few minutes off on both switch-overs in the correct directions, and your TtH falls right in the middle of that variance, and you also get your Noman in that few-second gap. More likely, there's at least a day gap between the Wicket and the Feast.

It still might be possible to only have 1 TtH hit before the tattoo parlor opens... if the servers catch on fire and everyone's TtH is delayed by a few days.

Support, most likely. I was in the Labyrinth two days ago and cards were working fine.

Nobody here talks about back-to-back Wicket and Parlor. There is old known scheme , that if the gap is N weeks , you can bring Noman with (N-1) TtH hits on his life. According to Skinnyman last year gap was exactly two weeks .
The only condition for this is that your TtH comes the same day when Wicket closes and Wicket closes at the end of the day , not in the morning.
You no need to burn FBG servers.

Are you a Paramount Presence? Record your name here. For posterity, of course.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In 2017:
Penstock's Wicket opens - 06/01/17
Urchins stop selling pails - 23/01/17
One week Pail melt warning appears - 24/01/17 (or, possibly, 23/01/17)

Penstock's Wicket closes - 01/02/17

This year the Wicket opened on the 5th so melt it may melt earlier this year. Would be nice if someone has the exact data from last year. smile

Is there a list anywhere of which fate-locked companions/items give you new opportunity cards? I'm not looking for spoilers or even a review of which ones are "worth it", just which ones have them and which ones don't.

I don't know for list. Just know that all beast accessible through Theological Husbandry (20 FATE) have own cards.

Such a list would be indeed nice! Specially after a long break or after removing a pet only because it has no use at the moment.
I sometimes forget that some cards have other useful uses or good for a certain goal.

I think the Gift and the Soul Trade are the only ones. The SOul Trade adds one or two, depending on your choices. Cut with Moonlight, HOJOTOHO! the Thief of Faces and the Blemmigan Affair all add options to faction cards.
