For my first Neathmas, I was just able to get the Dark-Carapaced Crustacean from the two pails of snow that I had saved up. I'm going out to Bulbone Island to grind for more Storm Threnodies so that I can get at least one more pail of snow, but I at least have something for my efforts as of now.

I have been grinding the finishing school for favors and deck refreshes an absurd amount. I decided to try and get an absurd amount of credit with the headmistress and now after way to many trips through the school, I now have over 1000 Credit with the headmistress. I legitimately am surprised, i would have expected to hit a cap at some point.

Congrats to all! I'm a newly minted PoSI! I've been progressing along the Dueling the Black Ribbon and have a three-card lodging.
I also was lucky enough to collect an absolute killer two-card combo: the one you get with Seeking the Meaning of the Flint Idol 4, which reduces all your wounds...and a Mood card.

Hit the Mood card for Dangerous, racked up the necessary Duel with Feducci to 90% chance of success, hit the Flint Idol card, and...BAM.

I got ridiculously lucky but I'm a bit pleased with myself nonetheless.

just used a Salon to boost Making Waves and got exactly what I needed to increase my Notability. Zero change points wasted. I am unreasonably stoked for such a minor thing.

I have finally reached the status of the Extraordinary Mind after selling my Noman's Elemental Secret to get me the equipment I need. Once I'm finished with the majority of seeking, I can start working on capping my stats and getting an Overgoat to max SotC.

After about 4 months and a 79% chance, I've finally finished creating a Classic Short Story! Oh, the things that would have happened if I failed...at least I have something to throw down the well now.

Think it's a combo between good fortune and bad luck, but I'll put it here as it was a fortune first!
Made my Noman, put on my monocle and, after warming a Tear only a biiiit it was gone on my first attempt. Took extra measures and I managed to use the second for a whooping 27 times! Big Grin

RNG got back in any case even with two consecutive single use, but my average was nice after using 16; 5.9375 before melting so a 7.9375 ToL/bucket was nice!

Side note: Getting 27 consecutive successes is a chance of ~0.24178%, but haven't found my soul even if, mathematically, I should have got it back more than a few times back! RNG LOVE!

P.S.: Noman knows gain is 1-ToL level, not 1-6.

Well, it was a Midnight Matriarch! Graceful, aristocratic, and already into the rats. Yay!

I’ve completed the grind at court and am now a Poet-Laureate. As best I can tell this doesn’t do anything but that’s one less grind for me to worry about.

Fun fact, I had to wait for a Mood to make the last jump from 19 to 20 because I was exactly 1 point short of the 290 persuasive requirement and there was no way for me to get that last point without changing my spouse or my destiny.

I... I think I just drew Jack Vance twice in a day. I think I'm okay with this. The odds probably aren't very impressive but I don't care, it's Vance.


Edit: GAAAAAAH! NO! The day ticked over while I wasn't looking! It's still the first of February here, I promise!

I am struck by two questions. First, what are those “+” bonuses to your dreams? I’ve never seen that before. Also, what is it you completed? A trip to The Mind of a Long Dead God? Are there mysteries yet hidden to me?

I started keeping track of my Dream qualities more than a year ago and those +x are extra CP to level.
And the achievement was to get all dream qualities above 20. Fire is a bastard as it lock very soon, but got it to 20+ in Nadir. Storm was too low at that time, got it to 20, but had to wait some time to go to Mutton as Sackmass started and Surface was too demanding.

So I am kind of proud of pulling this in less that two years! I also wanted to see if there's something more outside the known content boundaries, but there's nothing there. smile Or nothing yet!
