I’m almost Dangerous enough for the Labyrinth of Tigers, but I don’t believe I’ve seen a repeatable source of Rats-on-a-String in some time. The best I could find poking around the wikis is “Pull a Weasel out of your Hat” in early Flit, but at 64 rats/action that’s not much faster than doing the University grind and buying rats. Is there anything better out there other than Unfinished Business?
(Other ones that don’t pan out: Square of Lofty Words costs three actions between the two of us to grind, send, and receive 100 rats. Steal Paintings for the Topsy King is only 150 rats/cycle of Casing 5 or so.)
My current stats: Watchful ~105, Dangerous ~95, Persuasive and Shadowy in the low 80s. (so quite a ways from PoSI)
Ah, interesting. Looks like those options get Jade as well, which I’m also interested in grinding towards a room in the Royal Bethlehem. Thanks.
Edit: Or one other option… Not too far in the Labyrinth, there’s a storylet that gives you 7,000 Rats. I could pay Appalling Secrets for temporary access (and I’m drowning in Cryptic Clues, so that’s not a huge deal), and use the rats for permanent access when I get there. edited by Aspeon on 2/11/2012
