Quite a hard choice for me. I already have the Insatiable Gloves so I don't see the talons as that good except for the respectable. The Tarot Cards sound aesthetically more pleasing, but unlike the other two, it wouldn't just have an equivalent option, but be outright worse than the lenguals.Is that Hand of Glory with dreaded fate-locked or can any shmuck just grab it at the festival. The rubbery lumps would be the only one that offer me a good replacement for the expensive diamond ring, but I understand that the bizzare bonus would be easily covered by Lenguals. And what does it mean "Can't use the ring"? Like actually blocks the progression of the story os is not allowed for the part that would need high persuasive?

Can you guys please help me decide?

Came looking for Correspondence and found gold in the Nadir.
Hard to piece together all the missing pieces in those faded mysteries, but enough darkdrop coffee should offer more than enough late hours. Good against Fingerkings too.

This is an unwise question.

A more straightforward answer:
[spoiler]Winking Isle of SMEN infamously requires you to get rid of significant amount of belongings in order to progress in it. The long list of items forbidden in the Isle includes the diamond ring, notably the only piece of equipment not allowed in the place.[/spoiler]

BTW - In the Candidate's Thread for Virginia, there is some deep (& rhetoricly antagonistic) thought on Virginia's devil-bone gauntlets - and WHY they're watchful, perhap ... (said analysis from the critic camp, on my part, for one - suggesting she'll be hunting the wearers, for fitness programs, heh.)

I voted for Virginia's item even though my character supported Miriam Plenty. I was truly disappointed in being stuck with a glove coated in Rubbery Lumps for my pains that wasn't even Best in Slot.

I believe the standard suits of Neathy playing cards are Hats, Bats, Cats and Rats. Whether these carry over to the Neathy Tarot, I cannot say.
In fact, they do not - Shoshana's tarot includes Coins and Staves, as well as Cups (I presume there is also some number of Swords in the deck, though we've never seen any).

Sidenote: The Enigmatic Augur's deck differs a little, in that respect - his features Chalices and Wands, as well as Aces and Knaves (Jacks), the latter two being pretty clearly derived from playing cards, while Shoshana's uses Cups and Staves, alongside the more mystical Pages.

Sounds as though Mme. Shoshana's tarot has the conventional Tarot suits that Waite et al. would recognize; Coins (or Pentacles), Staves (or Wands), Swords and Cups. Pages are a kind of court card in the Tarot--not a suit.

Well, if Madame Shoshanna is a member of the Shroud, she might not like Magicians, and remove them from her deck.

By-the-by an alter-ego brag (channelled via fourth-wall-translucency) - if i may : i have long owned the Crowley Thoth Tarot, with complete Tome guide (& deck pamphlet) - And have had the "Golden Dawn" / "O.T.O." spare card Signed by the sagacious Discordian Pope, Robert Anton Wilson. (i, meaning 'Doctor-Static', moreso, of course) - ((Also, i have a wee pixie deck, likely the size of the Gifted one from Mme. Shoshana.))


Now, if only Psmyth can transpose the Tarot-glove-deck's set of 77 Arcana unto the fine slide-rule-like etched bands of his Copper DeCyphering Ring - as i'm speculating Lovelace and Babbage may have alloted means to do, in their contributions to its design....
