My character is a cautious sort, so there are a number of storylines I have been temporarily avoiding. I wanted to make sure none of my odd behavior would have unforeseen consequences, and determine which could be undertaken with less risk. I’m just about to start breeding beasts in the Labyrinth, which will require me to do at least SOME of the things I have so far avoided. Your thoughts and advice are much appreciated.
The Black Ribbon
Simply put, my character has NO interest in the black ribbon. Permanent death for the purpose of some silly showing-off is worse than madness to her. I plan on probably skipping this forever (and doing it on an alt), unless doing so would lock me out of other, non-dueling-related opportunities.
Getting Kicked out of Court
I’m going to put this off practically forever (until I have every work of art, at least).
The Plaster Face
Right now, I’m seeing if I can improve my Sympathetic without paying FATE, even though the amount is so low. I’m pretty much doing it out of stubbornness, trying to pull that Watchmaker’s hill card a few times. I already got the first point with the Ratskin suit/working rat interaction. Is this foolish?
I just got my ship, and I’m planning my first voyage. Other than reducing all menaces and spending fascinating/casing, are there any other things to do in preparation? Is it a bad idea to head to Zee when you haven’t really progressed the University storyline yet?
The Tomb Colonies
I’ve never been, but I’m just about to get started with breeding and I know there is a beast (or beasts) that can only be caught there. I want to make sure my visit counts, however, so I’m trying to figure out how to prepare and what I should make sure to accomplish once I’m there. It seems like this is the menace area with the smallest number of long-term consequences so I shouldn’t be all that worried, but I’ve avoided it for this long!
I find the Pace of Academic Life quite useful, but I also know that the University is one of the biggest key pieces to unlocking further content. My current plan is to progress this when I’ve run out of things to do without it, (excepting the Black Ribbon and getting kicked out of Court).
