The new path to what I can only assume is Paramount Presence is wonderful in how it incorporates a number of the "games within a game" of Fallen London, such as raising Couriers’ Footprint, Scrap Collecting, Advancing the Liberation of the Night, Renown, the various social actions.
Three options per card is great! Having multiple paths is great.
But there are four very wonderful ‘games within the game’ that you missed, and it would be wonderful if you could add them as ‘fourth options’ on the cards. It would be great to see them rewarded, and they could be tweaked to not make the path to Paramount Presence any easier than it is.
-Getting the Noman Tattoo[/b]
-Completing Seeking and Turning Back (the sevenfold knock)
-Adrift on a Sea of Misery (something which many of us take just as seriously as Advancing the Liberation of the Night – and fits in well thematically with the recent Season of Stones)
Sea of Misery is a little bit debatable since it’s not supported with as much ingame content as some other things, and you could make an argument for replacing it on this list with Connected: The Masters, a very high level of Explorer of the Unterzee, The top tier of Knife and Candle when it returns, or something along those lines. But finding a 4th isn’t hard, and the other three are ironclad shoo-ins.
What do you think, FBG? Paramount Presence is a great way of recognizing everything we’ve gone through and all the ways in which Fallen Londoners have found interesting ways to push themselves within the game’s framework; why not push that idea a little bit further? :)
