After 8 years in Fallen London, hwoosh finally has a Cider. No idea why it took so long! ... except that doing SMEN and getting the Knock, plus throwing thousands of Echoes of Tears away to keep Nomen alive for Gant Tattoos six years in a row, probably had something to do with it!
The Tears sure do add to those numbers especially if you extended your friends life as much as possible, not the minimum requirement.

So you are one of the ones that got a tattoo every years since NiteBrite got it first? Nice, nice, nice!



I went and checked the "Christmas (historical) page on the wiki to be sure, and I must have missed one year early on, because the Nomen first appeared in 2014, and if I'd gotten it every year, I would have already reached 7. I probably won't stop at 7 either--it's heresy to say this in Fallen London circles, but I attach no particular importance to the number!

So I'll probably keep getting weird eldritch snowman tattoos as long as I'm in Fallen London. The stiff, self-imposed headwind will make Hellworm and Heptagoat, and whatever other wild endgame grinds the FBG gang dream up in the future, all the sweeter an attainment.

R Fellow Oswho. Don't ask what the "R." stands for. The poor fellow is sensitive about it. And violent.
Most social requests gladly and promptly answered.

Technically, you are correct, but no one knew about the tattoo so you got it in the same year as the first players did. I was lucky enough to find NiteBrite's blog post via web.archive to confirm this. smile Besides this, your character must already have the regular tattoos to get the private one.

But in the Neath we know there are other things too and clocks can be treacherous!

Out of curiosity, did you push your Noman to the max each year or only enough to get the tattoo? Asking for a friend that wasted close to 59k E of low EPA materials.

Fascinating, that much I did not remember! Well it's heartwarming to know I haven't missed a year after all!

I've pushed my Nomans significantly past the minimum each year, just because we've never known for sure that FBG that they might not significantly change the melt rate again. But merely enough to give a comfortable buffer, not to extremes.

I am now a proud member of the Cider Club! Took literally years, but I now have the immortality juice.

Now to get that worm...

Ignacious, the Fluid Professor, he will accept most social invitations, including boxed cats and affluent photographers (but only betrayals), though he is absent-minded and might take more time than entirely necessary. He apologizes.
