Protégés Seeking Patrons (Only protégés need post) Messages in this topic - RSS

Hello Ladies, Gentlemen, and those not limited by such feeble labels as "male" or "female".

As I am sure most of you are aware a "Patronage" system has been implemented. There are even a few other posts on the matter. However, this one is strictly (but not to strict) for Protégés seeking a Patron.

My goal for this post was to keep the process... simple. Or as close to simple as my feeble mind can conceive.

Anyway, some guidelines:

- Please post your unaugmented prime stats; your Watchful, Dangerous, Persuasive, and Shadowy without equipment, items, or pets. Please do not post if all your prime stats are over 100 (unaugmented), or else a Patron cannot help you and you cant help them.
- As of right now a Patron can only help increase one prime stat. So please state which prime stat you wish to increase:

A Shattering Force [Dangerous]
A Legendary Charisma [Persuasive]
An Invisible Eminence [Shadowy]
An Extraordinary Mind [Watchful]

There is a "Paramount Presence", which one would assume covers all prime stats, but it doesn't seem to be available at the moment.
- Keep your post "up to date". I know its easy to post and forget. Ghost and post... set and forget.... I don't know, I'm tired. If a prime stat reaches 100, make it known. Found a Patron and want to be left alone by other potential Patrons? Make it known, or make them fight over you... that's your prerogative.
- Let prospective Patrons know a little about yourself. No one wants to teach a faceless husk of a human(?).
-Your favorite riddle... this is strictly for my benefit and completely optional.

Please keep as close to the guide lines as possible. I wont stop you if you wanted to post something about your affinity for parakeets... but there are other, and much better constructed, forums for such.

And again: If you're a Patron seeking a Protégé refrain from posting... Unless you add a riddle... BUT EVEN THEN! For the sake of convenience I dream of keeping this a place for potential Protégés to be collected and easily found.

On a final note. As of this posting I am an "Extraordinary Mind" (not something I would personal call myself, but a title I accept none the less). I am breaking my own rules... So... "I weigh nothing at all, yet you can see me. Put me in a bucket and I make it lighter. What am I?".

A hole.

Ahem. Now that's over with, I, while in possession of an exceptional mind, require a patron to hone my other skills with. Shadowy first, I think.

Watchful 200
Shadowy 62
Dangeous 80
Persuasive 77

If you want to know a little about me, well... if I am to be studying stealth, I think a little discretion is in order, hm? I seek knowledge, but I am quite capable of concealing it as well.

"It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter."

I filch hidden things from hidden places, to hide once more in my dark cabinet of curiosities

I seek training in Shadowy. W143 S89 D107 P100.
I am a faceless husk of a human, and am testing the assertion that no one would be willing to teach me. I seek knowledge and revenge. I have been to Polythreme and the Cave of the Nadir, and not yet reached the Iron Republic, though I will go there soon.
The one who makes me does not use me; the one who buys me does not use me; the one who uses me does not care.

I could do with training in Shadowy (73) and Dangerous (61).

I'm kind of a big deal. People know me. Unfortunately, I have a habit of Seeking, so I need to climb my way back up.

It would be fun to be a Protégé. Hit me up, Gentlefolk, if it strike your fancy. Doesn't matter what attribute.

    My main character (ceruleanmind) is at:

    W: 82
    S: 80
    D: 80
    P: 85

    Dangerous seems to be most difficult for me, so I would appreciate a patron who can help me improve that quality the most, but I wouldn't say no to a watchful or a persuasive patron either. I seem to be doing the best with Shadowy so far so no help needed there, I think. smile I've only been playing for about a month, but am already in love with Fallen London and have even started pursuing the Light Fingers ambition. I have a lot more to learn about this place, but so far my journey in the Neath has been incredibly fascinating. As for my character, she's somewhat of a Bohemian, but also quite charmed by the Devils. She's currently working for the Cheesemonger and siding with the Neddy men over the dockers because she really wants to get closer to the Masters and learn something more about them. She's planning her first big score and expedition to the Forgotten Quarter soon too. Other than that she's subtle, magnanimous, steadfast and daring. The person behind her is more watchful, imaginative and curious about the world and everything in it than anything else and likes the opportunity to try her hand at something new and different here.

    UPDATE: I have found a Persuasive patron thanks to this thread. smile I am also a PoSi as of yesterday.

    P: 81

    I have a Protege for Shadowy currently, but it would be nice if I can find a way to increase my Watchful without increasing Nightmares, since I heard that Heart's Desire will require dream progress at some point in the future and going insane will lose all my dream progress...


  • I'm not really roleplaying my character much, just going with choices that seem fun/profitable at the time. Chose The Great Game as my &quotclosest to&quot but keep getting embroiled in Hell business.


    Oh and about riddles. How about just a link to a nice escape the room game? Flash based though, so PC only. http://robamimi.biz/games/switch/switch.php

    Update: a very generous and intelligent lady offered to be my watchful patron by means of a calling card some days ago, but alas, I was not able to reply immediately (shroom hopping is tiring and can induce amnesia). Long story short, sorry for not replying to you and yes, I would still love to have someone to help me with watchful!

    [s]I have W43, S22, D9 and P56. Currently working on my Shadowy, but I hope to become a Legendary Charisma.

    I am new to the Neath and still finding my footing, but my feet are nimble and strong and serve to preserve me as well as to serve those around me.[/s]


  • Gentlemen, thank you all. I've enjoyed receiving some particularly delicious offers, so am no longer searching, but I vow my door has not closed. I never turn away a good friend.

    P 92
    I am an easily distracted knowledge seeker who has never died, gone mad, or gotten banished for his scandal. This is in spite of continuous levels of all menace forms save hunger. I try to do what is right, but the pursuit of pleasure distracts. Also when i was asked, so long ago, to choose my affliction, i erred and choose the docks, the useless, useless docks.I find myself not caring witch stat a patron would train me in, only that they be capable of doing what they say.
    Also, a riddle for your pleasure:
    When my first is a task to a young girl of spirit,
    And my second confines her to finish the piece,
    How hard is her fate! But how great is her merit
    If by taking my whole she effects her release!

    Looking for Dangerous and/or Watchful Patrons.

    Watchful 90
    Shadowy 120
    Dangeous 88
    Persuasive 100

    I am irresistible, compelling, midnight and sinister (or so the game tells me). I am closest to The Great Game and sided with The Widow. My current occupation is the Watcher, although I will change this choice soon after I become PoSI and gain some Notability so I can proceed to...more delicious occupations (potentially Murderer or Conjurer). Currently, I am grinding some Prisoner's Honey and Criminals & Docks connections, which will take days to complete, so my stats are not going to improve above the limit in the next couple of weeks.

    Hi there!!

    I've been playing FL for a few months now though I don't have any friends who play with any regularity. I'm currently Duelling the Black Ribbon to grind up my Dangerous though I wouldn't mind Patrons for Persuasive and Dangerous to start off with (if it's better to focus on one then please let me know). It'd be nice to have some people to partake in mutally profitable actions and endeavours with so please do let me know if that interests you. I'm online quite a bit so you'll get a response when you send a request...just make sure profitable for the both of us wink.

    My stats:
    Watchful: 63
    Shadowy: 65
    Dangerous: 75
    Persuasive: 78

    My character right now is a mystery, even to himself. He wears many faces, none are masks yet all are true. A complicated individual whose endeavours and actions show that he could one day be a great individual.

    I've got a couple of questions, is the cameo I'm currently using available for purchase? I've looked in the preview section and I can't see it. Also, the Destiny I wanted was locked, will I be able to change it? (I needed the Committed accomplishment for the one I wanted).

    My alt Loogan comes from humble beginnings, and though he even managed to spend some time at university, he mostly solves problems with his fists. As such, he has some trouble getting along in higher society, and really needs someone to teach him some manner (in other words, to help with persuasive). His stats:
    W 102, S 85, D 100, P 80.

    My riddle is translated, so please forgive the lack of rhyme:
    I'm never really far from my beloved twin,
    I'm associated oft with the vomitive smell
    Of a part of the body with quite dubious looks
    Located far away from the olfactive tool.
    ETA: Loogan now has a persuasive patron. How nice!

    You can have as many mentors as you like for each stat as far as I know. But consider that each lesson will cost one Free Evening, which are limited to five each week, and you'll need them for suppers and dinners at Dante's, too.

    I believe the cameo you are currently using is a gender-neutral one, so it should be available in-game if your character is gender-neutral. Gender changes are lamentably still not possible, though. You should be able to change your Destiny with A Pail of So-called Snow and Putting the Pieces together: The Taste of Lacre 1, but it will cost 25 Fate/Nex.

    Edit: The option to change your Destiny with A Pail of So-called Snow will only be open until the 6th of January, this is. But worry not - there should be other possibilities in future.

    PotatoEngineer could use a hand with watching and persuading. If you're feeling curious whether Patronage works while the Protege has high stats and a Talkative Rattus Faber, I'm up for an experiment.

    Watchful: 68
    Shadowy: 100
    Dangerous: 114
    Persuasive: 73

    I've been moping around the training professions for quite a while, trying each one on in turn to see how they fit. Being a Tough is a bit tight in the shoulders, while Pickpocketing leaves me with mousetrapped fingers. Perhaps a bit of Investigation is in order?

    I've always wandered Fallen London with a fatally-vast curiosity: what happens if I push this button? What on earth is a Liberation of Night? If I contribute enough, do I get to see it? What happens if you poke a Master in the nose, and do they even have noses?

    My favorite riddle is the old classic, mostly for its answer: When is a raven like a writing desk?

    --
    My profile; may you find it slightly more enlightening than a truncheon to the head.

    Now accepting all social actions except cats and the Affluent Photographer. Satisfaction and a prompt response may be slightly related to my services.

    Greetings kind strangers!

    Dutt has been staying in Fallen London for a couple of months and would now really appreciate a patron who's an Extraordinary Mind or has Legendary Charisma.

    Watcchful: 68
    Shadowy: 60

  • Dangerous: 92
    Persuasive: 71

    My characters current goal in life is to buy a ship and sail to all kinds of places. He's tend to favour the dangerous and adrenaline-filled parts of life and looks forward to seeing strange and unknown places.

    To leave you something as food for thought:
    You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?

    Seeker of Names requires the Patronage of an Extraordinary Mind.

    Watchful 79, Shadowy 57, Dangerous 54, Persuasive 54

    What you need to know about Seeker is that ze seeks to learn names, for names are truth and truth is knowledge.

    Seeker's favourite riddle: What is the Name?

    --
    DragonRidingSorceress is an Author of good standing. Mostly good standing. She's happy to accept any social action except Photographer and Loitering, but requests warnings before duping/poisoning/etc.

    Seeker of Names is a... being with an obsession. They're willing to accept all invitations.
    One who seeks to know all that is and may be. One who dances in the silence of the void. One whose fantasies make the reality come alive.

    By way of introduction, I am a part-time author of penny dreadfuls and a dispassionate observer of social mores, being just as likely to mix with clergymen as well as revolutionaries. I request a patron of either Extraordinary Mind or Legendary Charisma, since I would like to develop my skills in shrewdness and cunning.

    Watchful: 55, Shadowy: 31, Dangerous: 32, Persuasive: 32

    My interest in riddles and guessing games is sadly lacking, but lovely readers may mull this one over at the local honey den: What is the sound of one hand clapping?

    I look forward to making your acquaintance.
