Please assist me, fellow players. For the past 13 days, Mr Chimes has been staring me down at the entryway of the House of Chimes. I have already paid the admission fee but I have yet to step a foot onto his estate. Apparently, I am not exceptional enough for his tastes. D: …Okay, I tell a lie. To be precise, I don’t find myself exceptional enough, but this is where the rest of you come in to save the day! (18 days to be exact since the House of Chimes is a 31 day subscription.)
I am most interested in presenting myself as a Scarlet Saint to Mr Chimes. The requirements are minimum scores of 12 in the quirks Austere and Hedonist. There’s also the matter of possessing Connection scores of 75 to both Hell and the Church, but that’s an uphill battle I know I can win. I’m not sure how, where or even when to unlock storylets and cards to increase Austere and Hedonist beyond 9. Frankly, I’ve never been so intimidated by the number 12 in my entire life.
My character stats:
I’ve repeatedly searched forums and wikis for tips. Most of those tips no longer apply, though; quirks have recently become capped. I think I’ve tried every storylet and card that’s currently possible for my character to play and the quirk increases are all capped at 9 or lower.
Where should I go from here? All suggestions and ideas are welcome! I offer my sincere thanks in advance.
For those wondering why I’m not choosing an alternate and/or simpler exceptional trait for the House of Chimes, I give two reasons:
- It seems that deciding upon an entrance trait is an one-time deal.
- Scarlet Saint is the choice that resonates best with my character and even that feels iffy.
