You don't because one of them is a Model Train

Evenlode, you mean.

But yes, I'm very interested to see what the payout will be from three stations and fully upgraded trains. You would think that the degree of one's GHR propaganda push and baggage level would also influence profits, but AFAIK that's not currently the case.

While I suppose they can't make it game-breakingly good, one would expect a non-trivial profit relative to the amount of debt accrued, what with all the investments involved.

Well, I'd say that unless the four toys are given some new use in future content, they're basically there for collectors and completionists. I'll get one of each and then use the card to farm Whispered Hints occasionally. If the Wiki is correct, it can go up to 3 EPA if you run from the riverbank when the Drownies come (none too shabby, even if there are better options nowadays - talk about rapid inflation, huh).

It's just a tiny little story, but kind of nifty and flavorful.

Oh yes, heavily.

I suppose we should prepare for a period of more relaxed progress with the railway, as we're about to reach the limit of the openly announced content. But with three stations, personally I'll be fine if FBG sets a boundary for a couple of months, or a period of more long-term grinding. Perhaps we'll hear what their vision for future Railway content is once the first batch of stations is implemented...


Hopefully, though, the dividends become at least borderline profitable with the introduction of Ealing, so we have something to do with the weekly Board Meetings.

Everything from August 15 to the end of September.

has the "rare trinket" become it's price fixed? at least before the update, it was worth 2/3 of the material price (or 1/2 if you take the 4. run for making it in stead of picking one of the components into account).


And add in the cost of an extra run because, hey, who doesn’t want a Clockwork Drownie?



You need 3 parts (the Locomotive, the Admiral and the Drownie) which are worth 5 scrap each, and get out an item that gives (at least pre rework) 10 scrap.
this means the outcome is 2/3 of the parts sell value if we only take the the material into account or 1/2 of the value if we take into account that the 4. run to get the item could also be used to get one of the parts.

Late August refers to the Jovial Contrarian's more recent writing.

You can repeatedly add Board members to reduce corporate debt, and then kick them off the board. Kicking off the board takes an extra vote in the board meeting, but doesn't seem to have any permanent consequences (honestly I expect this to get nerfed in the future). I've kicked the Widow off my board like four times.

You will need multiple Board meetings per station. But if you've decided what route to lay tracks, you should be able to start. Do you have the "Terrain Surveyed" quality? Look for a Storylet in Moloch Street named "The Next Stretch of Track."

am I missing something or have they "just" adjusted the difficulty?



So, they've spent two weeks trying to figure out how to adjust the difficulty? That's... not for me to comment.

Holy sh*t, the artist's honey option looks almost game-breaking. I love it. Then again, the new areas for high-level players do involve copious amounts of honey, between going into Parabola and all those Comprehensive Bribes for the railway. I hope it doesn't get nerfed, because what it looks like is giving specifically high-level players the ability to meet the demands of the game and not have to spend so much time grinding in Veilgarden.


What exactly are you talking about?^^"

Pretty sure it's this from the patch update:


- Added an option to send the Freeloading Artist from your lab to fetch back some honey for your workers.



Ahh, found the option. Hmm.. it seems intesting, but until now I managed to supply my honey consumption with criminaly and bohemian favours. So no need to change the staff on my lab right now.

I'm just going to point out that that option gives 2.5 EPA(!) with almost no requirements. It also means you can get the Room at the CRoyal Betlehem in 322 Action ie 4 days roughly. Its really, really, really good!



Well, you *do* have to be able to create the lab (which is no small feat), plus have romanced the Starving Artist either for real or retroactively (I think it may be possible to lock yourself out of it if you choose the Artist's Model during Past Indiscretions, but don't quote me). So it's not "no requirements"--it's "by the time you could potentially have access to this option, you've almost certainly met its requirements, OR all that's needed is a quick trip to the Shuttered Palace."

What exactly happens in this story? I got a miniature admiral - if I replay the story can I get something else, and then go for the third option?

I am trying to build Ealing station, but I guess I have to wait for Time the Healer? Even though supposedly before that you get extra meetings?
I hope it's not a bug. The board chose to go through the occupied buildings, so I was expecting to be able to start laying tracks - apparently, it requires an extra meeting?

You can get Rumours for selling skeletons to some specific buyers or from a whole lot of actions in Ealing station or Jericho Locks. Actually, just coming here give you one.
You can get tea from one of new clubs (Sophia's, I think), or buy helping urchin from Ealing station with his bear problem (Honey Mazed Bear carousel, which you most likely run into anyway. It raises dangerous caps, gives throphies for dangerous analogue of Sotc/Poet-Laureate and it is story about bear lost in dream world due to overhoneing, so why wouldn't you)
All and all requires at least one station, but Debt would become real problem only when you upgrade your train or trying for dividents. First can wait, second - last time I check - wasn't really worth it yet.
