The RNG was very good to me recently: went to the Cave of the Nadir, got the Irrigo Goggles and then *two* End of Battles. That was my entire trip--3 straight successes, and one of the few new items I could get, for 8 Irrigo. I'll take that!

And then, after at least two weeks of drawing cards only in Ladybones Road, I got a salt-weasel!

I may be paying for my run of good luck now with my inability to draw the Bohemians card so I can change my profession to journalist. I've drawn every other Faction card at least once, some 3-4 times. But then all hail the mighty RNG. All hail. All hail.

Congratulations on the cap! How many cards did you need to achieve this? Big Grin

It was relatively quick for me: I believe I got two rare successes in a row on my third try or so.

Damn, this is indeed a true example of RNG when putting it next to my 25 attempts (17 S and 8 RS)!
Probably 9 rare successes, but I can't remember if I recorded the 3rd consecutive one which led me to discover the option's cap.

I salute you! Big Grin

It only took me one try to get my first yacht, but I ended up scuttling that one when I went North. Came back, jumped in another card game for a new yacht...and got it on the first try again. Mr. Apples should really stop gambling with me.

After spilling a lot of my blood, wasting a fortune, and kissing up to Slowcakes to increase my Notability, I finally have the Courier's Footprint and London's Nerves. Next stop: London's Sinew!

I've saved a poor dog caught in a painstalking and humilating cat reunions, disregarding their petty threats.

Still.. People says i should get rid of him.. That he's haunted.. Whatever.. He's good company.

It's not necessarily fortune, but I've hit 200 in my first stat (Watchful), with Dangerous and Persuasive both at 196. I don't have *quite* enough Chess mastery yet, though. About half way there and a fourth of the way to maxing the Boatman.

this was the best draw I've ever gotten: I drew my last three cards in one click and ended up with A Presumptous Opportunity, An Unsigned Message, and a Dusty Bookshop. Now I've had my "Four Straight Months Without the Bohemians Card" and "Five Mirrors and Clay in a Row" like everyone else, but this time the RNG dun good.

Both mood cards and A Dream of Blood. If I manage to accidentally discard at most one I'll make Courier's Footprint in 2 weeks.

Went to The Nadir on my alt, got Old Bones twice and End of Battles with the rare success (since that alt made the decision to tell Clathermont about his wife last feast). Easy Whirring Contraption.

Less lucky, accidentally burned 8 points of Notability to boost my Watchful unnecessarily and I still haven't drawn Amanuensis on my alt all day

I have found my way to the Cave of the Nadir!

Also got a Starstone Demark, which Kharagal has been searching for for quite some time...

I recently found the Cave of the Nadir thanks to someone on here sending me an Eyeless Skull. The run itself was at half-past midnight, riding a Mood. February beat me to the Cave at 54 Archaeologists Progress because I failed a few ~80% chances (was going for 3's with rerolls on every one). I was so distraught but then the Chess Match storylet came up. I was out of rerolls, but it was a 91% chance.

Click.

Your Rivals Progress is now 1!

I was so freaking happy, you've no idea. I took 100% chances for the last steps and got there. I dread to think what would have happened had I failed and to grind Docks favours / wait for a mood / get another skull again.
