Just to point out that there’s a slightly misleading discrepancy between the guidance notes on two options.
‘Ask the Custodial Chef to prepare your Strange Catch’ carries the note ‘This will reduce your Wounds and grant useful items.’
Whereas ‘Give your Strange Catch to the Melancholy Curate’ carries the note ‘This will reduce your Nightmares.’ There’s no mention of useful items, so I assumed there’d be none given, but I chose it anyway because I had no Wounds to reduce.
The Melancholy Curate not only reduced my nightmares from 5 to nothing, but also gave me 2 x Partial Maps and 3 x Zee Stories. I was happy, to say the least.
Provided you have Sights at the Festival in the appropriate range,
‘Venture further out’ is displayed when you’ve reached Gone Fishing 10, even though it isn’t playable because the Fishing cycle is complete. I assume this is a minor bug.
Unless the event has changed something, you couldn’t cash professional rewards at zee before (getting there and back is fairly cheap during the festival and as long as you do it before the end of the week you should be safe)
The Festival has been incredibly fun and rewarding. Loving nearly every minute of it. I’m mourning my lost quirks somewhat, but the compensations are fruitfully abundant. I scored a bunch of weapons and found my destiny, and couldn’t be happier. And the writing is a joy.
Spending items such as Zee Stories and Partial maps gives bigger boosts to RB.[/quote]
Thanks RandomWalker and Mallachi. Before I read your comments, I’d been wondering how on earth to get my Running Battle high enough. You saved me a lot of wasted actions. Cheers.
Does the lady appear more than once? Or is she gone for good once you claim a prize from her? I cashed in a Strange Catch for a lovely compass, but I would dearly like a chance at some of the other items. But I’ve burnt through 2 sets of candles fishing and then waiting for her, and she hasn’t appeared again. I ended up giving my catch to someone else.
Don’t worry, she’ll turn up again. All the options at the Festival are unlocked by a specific range of values of ‘Sights at the Festival’. In the Hooded Lady’s case it’s 87-97 or thereabouts. If you select Sights at the Festival as your scrapbook item, and keep reloading your mantelpiece, you can see what’s going on. edited by Edmund Winterset on 8/29/2014 edited by Edmund Winterset on 8/29/2014
