Off the topic of Hallowmas: it would be nice if being London's [Nerves/Sinew/etc] or even being a paramount presence would permanently raise a player's stat cap. I'm so nervous about using the 15 notability stat raise because I'm terrified I'll misclick and ruin months of work...



As much as I would love that functionality, I suspect it's outright impossible without changing Storynexus itself. Stats are hard capped at the same value for everyone, so raising the cap would affect everyone too.

The return of "Suggest a contact" is very greatly appreciated.

A quality of life suggestion I have would be to allow Favourable Circumstances to force-draw "Call in favours in the Flit". This makes sense in the context of the story - fortune smiles on you, and so you can arrange a profitable meeting with your hard-to-find contacts in the Flit. My back-of-envelope calculations suggest that this shouldn't necessarily break game balance (the most profitable trade-in is 28.80 Echoes for 3 Revolutionary Favours, but just the minimum action cost of raising Notability to 7 four times for the favours and trade-in drop the EPA to at most 1 EPA, along with the opportunity cost of not being able to use the Making Waves and Notability for anything else).

Alternatively, since every other Call In Favours is a storylet, but there's no storylet-based way to use Criminals/Urchins/Revs... why not add an option in the Flit to use one of those three Favours to force-draw the Calling in Favours card? While such a change would be incredibly profitable, it would still be limited by card draws, as the non-card methods of grinding Favours are too inefficient.

I second that. I am usually permanently stuck in Flint trying to spend my favors and it gets a bit boring when there are so many other locations in the game. I would gladly spend one or even two favors to cash urchins. Alternatively, if this was made into a storylet, I would not mind if it became less lucrative - 1 favor for 8 or 9 scraps would make it equally profitable with any other grind.
I understand that storywise it's harder to get hold of urchins and criminals than church offiials but perhaps a renown requirement would solve that too?

I like the way the storylets and their results take up much less vertical space today. It might be the best Christmas present ever.

I dunno; I kind of think they went a little too far. Can't please everyone, I guess.

Not having to scroll so much is very appreciated. A pity that the second chances checkbox ends up so squashed, though.

It's going to make expeditions easier (not scrolling up to see if you get extra options like the sign) and the separating line is especially appreciated. The black is a bit jarring, though.

Is there a thread for feedback about the forums somewhere? I just managed to press "Report to Moderator" while trying to edit my post, and it's not the first time this happened. It's right next to the reply and edit buttons, and it doesn't ask for confirmation, so I've done this at least 3 times in the past year already. I imagine I'm not the only one and those false reports must be confusing/annoying to the mods.
Asking for confirmation and a reason for the report would be helpful for everyone involved.

Are dinners currently broken for everyone, or just me?

The game crashes everytime I try to accept one (the same happens if I pick 'Decline').

Also, accounts with no Free Evenings show up as eligible for Dinners.

Edit It's not just dinners, other social actions are affected, too.

Crashes how? Just an emptiness where the text/contact choice/... should be (but everything around it is still there)? How many contacts do you have? I had to wait for FB to prune my contacts down to about 100 ...

No, everything below the tab names (Messages, Myself etc...) disappears.


But I've sent in a bug report yesterday and right now I was able to accept a dinner and send a christmas card on both affected accounts. Maybe it was something temporary to do with the servers, or on my end, no idea. I don't think it has to do with contacts, one of the accounts affected is an alt with only a handful of contacts.

This affected all social actions yesterday, but it seems to have been fixed after a few hours.

Christmas note: I'll try to respond in kind to received Christmas cards, but there's no way I'll be able to send a card to all who have sent one to me.

Want a sip of Hesperidean Cider? Send me a request in-game. Here's an_ocelot's guide how.
(Most social actions are welcome. Please no requests to Loiter Suspiciously and no investigations of the Affluent Photographer)

Just a tiny request but the Christmass spirit got to me!
If you take the Fate option in the Soldier's story, his circumstances improve. I wish the "A Visit" card would reflect that - be a bit less sad.

I like to request a small improvement for convenience (might have been already suggested): A fifth option for preset gear/equipment for a maximum BDR-build. One could call it "Eccentric" or "Flamboyant".

My best regards and a happy new year!

This has been talked about before! I agree 100%. Someone else considered calling it "Prominent," but it really doesn't matter. I think it would help POSI with organization a LOT.
