Hi, I recently got back into playing this wonderful game as a friend recommended it which was a nice surprise as I had forgotten the game name and spent months looking for it. It seems I was partway through trying to get First City Coins, I manage to pick up 50 so far but need a further 27 I think. My friend recommended I ask for help on here because they have a different ambition to me though they help if I need it. My profile is http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Valky. Thank you for any help and I hope you have a nice day

Sorry for the delay, 1 batch of coins have been sent.

If you have any connected:masters, though, this storylet is the most lucrative way to dispose of it. most methods are pricey and return either very little, or convenience alone. (There are valuable uses, such as escaping prison instantly for a hefty fee, but the optimal method is to turn them in here for 12.5 transferable echoes in coins- 50 coins. )

Also, if you want to get any value out of warm amber, 5 here will turn into 1.5 echoes (6 coins), which is not a truly terrible payout. Given that the only other use is stockpiling 100 for a trembling amber (12.5 echoes) it can be worthwhile to upcraft it now.

This storylet can be accessed at any point during the ambition if you ever fall under 77 coins while in london. However, once you've done the next option that requires 77 coins, the rest of the ambition will not lock you out when you fall short, i believe.

Ah ha! I always wondered if you were hanging around at the very beginning of things and not progressing with Heart's Desire. I'm not going to be in London proper for some time, but thanks for letting me see that. I like having no Amber (and no Rubbery connection) so this works out particularly well.

It's worth noting that the 5 amber -> 6 coins requires connected: rubbery men 5, unfortunately. It won't consume any, either! still, if you want a good sum of transferable funds, it's rather viable. The next best option after that- and this is not a good one- is criminals connections. 1 favor and 10 inklings of identity for 6 coins.

that's how i'm getting most of my coins, since an Ubergoat is low on the priorities list and otherwise i have enough echoes for just about everything. for instance, if i make newspapers with minimal efficiency (buying Scarabs and upcrafting: roughly 600 scarabs a whirring contraption and so roughly 150 echoes) I still have enough echoes to make 35 newspapers, even if i'm not spending echoes on anything else. Expeditions, even taking the least effective in EpA route, still returns a positive EpA. The echoes i get from playing the really good cards are enough to sustain me on their own!

The rest are comming from mr. wine's revels. sure, the EpC is roughly -2.5, but it's only roughly -2.5 echoes, which is really good for getting transferable funds.

I too am in need of First City coins. I have 42 at the moment, leaving me 35 short. I also have the cryptic clues if anyone with 70 or more persuasive or shadowy is interested in robbing the Museum of Mistakes.

Edit: I have reached my goal of 77, thank you to those responsible.
