I'm currently trying out the Fidgeting Writer grind for the first time, but once I'm done with these 2000 Tales of Terror!! I'd be interested in a gift exchange once more. Time to see how many weeks this'll eat up.

A little feedback:

Up to now I traded with Optimatum and Danko.
It was an immense pleasure and a great honour to do business with both of them. They were extraordinary reliable, amiable and enjoyable contacts.

I can absolutely recommend to trade with them.

While Slightly Unorthodox here, while waiting for navchaa's return from Flint (and I did get the 2nd package from your alt now the RNG smiled upon you as uncommon your logins are with that character, as well as updated "Something Forbidden" on my prior reply's tracking,) I stockpiled a bunch of Unsigned Letter Gifts with my Notability 9+ acquisitions for when I became Soulless. Below are the spoiled results of me opening them:
[spoiler]
  • Something scholarly (You've gained 5 x Volume of Collated Research)
  • Something contradictory (You've gained 1 x Venge-Rat Corpse, You've gained 8 x Ostentatious Diamond)
  • Something perilous (You've gained 18 x Correspondence Plaque [and already a SotC 10+])
  • Something dark (You've gained 39 x Lump of Lamplighter Beeswax)
  • Something wretched (You've gained 1 x Silk Scrap, You now have 1 x Bundle of Ragged Clothing You've gained 1 x Foxfire Candle Stub You've gained 1 x Rat on a String) [Cries a little]
  • Something perilous (You've gained 18 x Correspondence Plaque)
[/spoiler]


So that's it. Two really cruddy pulls, and four nice ones, but no Soul or Secretary yet. (I'll now return to my previous reply updates when applicable again.)

    Madman, thank you! It was completely unexpected, especially when I had the option to pick either bloodstained or purple. Something perverse in me almost clicked the other option for a boatload of stolen correspondence!

    Truthseeker, I'm still in London tying up loose ends as I'm such a dilly-dallyer. Plus, Penstock's Wicket is going to open any moment? Looks like the trip will be pushed back for a while.

    I'm flexible (and still soulless and without secretary.) Whatever works, as long as we pick up or cut it off as we mutually decide.

    Quite simple - I'll send you any gifts that turn up, and if you find any, it's up to you whether you want to send it on or wait till you get one from me. If I'm at zee, I don't think it's possible to send a gift to me anyway.

    Sorry for not writing anything here. My exchange with cimanyd has ended as stated by cimanyd. It was a good month. Though we didn't do including RP messages, that sounds nice. I am currently exchanging gifts with hypersomnus (forum name). We corresponded when this thread started but due to late replies I started to exchange with cimanyd and we decided to exchange in january.
    I hope I will add my box opening data someday. I have around 50 data on a spreadsheet(it is hard to write here and a lot of it is from source other than this exchange) and around 50 unopened boxes.

    If no one else has jumped in first, I'd be happy to exchange with you for a while. If the RNG actually lets me draw the card, anyway. (Anyone else hate that thing? Or is it just me?)

    I did, but then I mugged a rat 40 times and got 3 watches, so now I'm pretty cool with the RNG while watching my back for the comeuppance.

    Up for long or short term exchanges. In fact, I have one card sitting in my hand right now, might as well put them to better use than just grinding second chances.

    I'm shortly going to be spending my time and echos on the FotER, but I'd like to trade with someone afterward if anyone wants to.

    Edit: Trading with PageofCups for an indefinite length of time. (Should have said that days ago. Oops. Sorry.)
