Yup, that's how it happens!
Imagine the joy and love for that card specially during the Feast of the Rose! Big Grin

I don't know if this counts as good fortune given that it's Seeking, but RNG favored me on my last go-round through Winking Isle. It only took me four days to finish, instead of a week and I even succeeded at the most risky well luck check.

And now I never have to see that godforsaken place ever again.

Two good days for me - first I got my Ubergoat, then I wrote a Classic Short Story. At 67% probability. ( I still can't believe I dared try it at those odds.)
Now to finish preparations for my wedding at St. Fiacre's!

Wait, what? I was usually able to get 7 SMEN in about two days. Either I was really lucky or you weren't. In any case, congratulations with finishing that part of seeking!

RNG hated me. 50% chance of success? More like 10%. Alright, maybe not so bad, but it was still pretty bad.

This is a bit late (school is hard) but I am now happily married. I also slipped enough lacre to kill an army into mr. wines' cup at the party. He survived, but I think the hangover was a little worse than usual. Still, a petty victory of my own is neat to have.

On a note that is totally not related and definitely not an extension of the previous announcement, or the fact that you can get 1 urchin favor per 5 cp organizing a wedding, I am now the proud owner of renown urchins 22, and increasing rapidly.

I will accept all social actions that do not consume free evenings- and i will provide patronage to anyone who requests it, though it will be split between all requesters.
On psudeo-hiatus. Will be inactive and active and fluctuate without warning.

Seems like a good time to mention that I was able to get Notability 12 with grenem's help through marriage, thus allowing me to swiftly finish seeking. It was quite satisfying.

My goodness... After several fruitless attempts at opening a Surprise Package, we have found ourselves in possession of a Blemmigan Secretary. How dubiously delightful.

Just "several"? Wow. Good fortune indeed. Some people have opened hundreds, and it never seems to be anything but troublesome!

If you need anything I can get my hands on and willing to send me surprise package(s) in return, I can help you with that.

Well, after trying A LOT of times, yesterday the RNG blessed me since I finally got the ratwork watch from robbing a drunk rat... and discovered it is (currently) useless for me, since I am an agent and already have a +9 watchful weapon. Still! Lucky me!

Oh, and I got a bat with attitude, too, which is nice

May I ask what does "A LOT" mean? I think the rare success has been lowered (under 0.61% from 330), but I still got 120 attempts to go. Being alone with this I just thought RNG was/is a b_____d.

Well, it's hard to tell, since I didn't keep track. However, i'm sure it was waaaay lower than 330 tries. If these are the odds, I'll retract my A LOT statement

If this is correct, I must have pleased the RNG gods somehow, since I got the Ratwork Watch in like, 5-7 tries or so (I built up SiC up to 9 and then roobed the drunken rat as much as I could, got a Watch halfway through). If add some previous tries I made without really aiming for the Watch itself, I think I robbed the rat less than 20 times before getting my prize.

You'll find a use for that Watch once you join the Midnighters' club.
