Dearest readers,
I find myself in a bit of a bind. I am a day and a few hours from time the healer visiting, and am presently...291 change points, +/-5, from my goal of notability 5. Is there any way for me to make the gap, or should I cut my losses for this week and let my making waves drop down? I have three free evenings, but the only thing remotely quick enough would be Dante's grill...and I don't know anyone for that.
Thoughts? Experiences? Advice?

Sir: I am a Person of Some Insignificance with 15 Making Waves at present. If these would profit you, I would be pleased to meet you at Dante's.

I shall send along a calling card and an invitation once my actions have sufficiently refreshed. You do save me by your actions, and I shall find a way to repay you.

After Dante's, if you still have free evenings use them for a private dinner. And if you're still short after that, go to the Singing Mandrake in Veilgarden and write poetry. I like the Devils option because it doesn't consume items, though it does lower Connected Hell, Church, and Society slightly and gives some Scandal and Wounds. For 3 actions, you'll get a variable amount of MW for it (3-10 CP according to the wiki, but I swear I've only gotten 1 CP now and then), but it is infinitely repeatable.

If you have lots of Memories of Distant Shores, Tales of Terror, Zee-Ztories, Visions of the Surface, or Scraps of Incendiary Gossip, upconverting them will also give you some MW as a by-product.

Fantastic points! But do notice the product up-conversion at that tier often requires having 50 or more minimum for each wanting to convert for a said 1-10 cp MW each attempt.




If doing bulk conversion on the non-1000 ones, that's around a 1500 tier 1 conversion item equivalent before you can do one tier 3-4 item up-conversion, assuming you don't do bulk conversion then uptick the next tier by 10-per-conversion-option, but spend more turns which is a greater deficit.
Now for those who have been around many a month and have hundreds of Echoes, the impatient for time limit reasons can buy about 40 echoes worth of stuff at most and do so quickly. But I'm guessing people in this situation often don't have this echo surplus. (The other option should you accept $7 a month until you choose to cancel it) is an exceptional friendship doubles the turn bank to 40, but has no speed-up should you expend all turns, and this is a 6-hour, 40-minute wait time should you go to 0 turns and want to wait for a full bank. (Of course for both regular and exceptional, one could also spend Fate, which charges 4 Fate for 6 actions and 10 fate for 20 actions.)
