So, I made a thread about Unique Goals recently, and I finally decided on one I want to do: horde Fabulous Diamonds like there’s no tomorrow. There are several reasons for this choice:
If I need some spare cash for something small, I can always sell off 1 Fabulous Diamond.
I doubt anyone else is going for them.
If I need some spare Magnificent Diamonds (or I click on it accidentally) I can break one down.
If I can get 512 I can always sell off the lot for the rarer Cider if I so chose. XD
As you can see, a few cool benefits. However, there is a SLIGHT catch. You see, as far as we know, there are only 2 ways of getting these objects:
1: A Fate Locked Option which costs 40 Nex and 20 Magnificent Diamonds. (Too rich for my blood)
2: Selling one’s soul with the POSI option on the City Vices: What Profit card.
So, as you can see, my only real option is to constantly sell my soul. But one needs to regain it to do so. And there are two ways of regaining one’s soul:
1: Pay a constant rising nex cost each time.
2: Get lucky and find it in packages.
So as you can see again unless I want to possible end up paying thousands of pounds to Failbetter, my only real option is to open a ton of packages.
Thus I ask of you politely: If you happen to get a Give A Gift Card, have a spare ten echoes, and have noone you wish to give a package to, send them my way.
NOTE: If you wish for me to trade back I will do so. Just add it in your message.
Note 2: Okay, it’s been a while but I noticed someone revived this thread. So progress notes:
In short, while I still want to do this, I ran into difficulties getting my Soul back over and over. I have few options since university was done and most are either card or sea related, and I did not get the amount of packs I was hoping for. Also i find it hard to stick to one goal. Therefore, I only ever collected 4 Diamonds. Which I then sold to get a Overgoat. So right now I have but the one.
If people are still willing to help I’m up for the goal still, but currently I only have one, and the fate cost for me to get the Soul back is now more then it would be to just buy a Diamond with fate so I either need a LOT of fate or to get a lot of packs for soul regaining and hope for the best.
Either way, when you send help, a quick note: you should also send some to Kittenpox too. i expect he’s more likely to get Diamonds then I am so support him in his goal also.
