"Prepare oven number three."

The Season of Heart's Blood is complete. If you played Flint, the Art of Murder and the Waltz that Moved the World, you will have gained an item unique to each tale. These three items can be traded in to unlock a morsel of story, a soupçon of lore and a toothsome reward.

This option opens today, and will remain permanently, so there is no need to trade in your items by any deadline.

The story will be found anywhere in London. Enjoy!

Yummy.

After I read the "Our Chef de Cuisine requires certain sanguine ingredients for a new recipe..." text, I was breathlessly prepared to announce on the forums that de Gustibus had returned to Fallen London, in a new guise. Fortunately I saw this post before I embarassed myself.

Be kind, I have yet to experience de Gustibus.

Edit: A difficult choice. Having come thus far, one seems more obvious than the the other.

Edit: I chose not to partake. The choice, and its rewards, are in my Journal.

Very nice reward (for the choice I made, which is to be daring), thank you.
I hope I won't seem too bad-mannered, but it was... a bit disappointing. Its very short, so I feel like it needed especially strong text, something very... fleshy ? carnal ? I had pleasure reading it, I just expected more.

Anyway thank you !

PS : I would have kept the unique items instead of the reward if I'd known, since the reward is just a very expensive item. But it's a BIG reward, you've been generous, so I can't complain. ^^'

What a tasty and strange journey it was. It was a very interesting one and makes me hope I came away from it ok and curious what the path would have been like.

Mmmm. Blood, in sausages, blood in cubes in soup.



I admit it's an acquired taste! I like the notion that two of the 312.5€ items may actually be the same thing in some cases, just viewed from a different perspective. And I enjoy the continued role of the Apicius Club as the high-end gustatory garbage-disposal of the Fifth City: snuffling along the storylets, rooting for various valuable, truffley odds-and-ends that clutter up inventories.

Bravo, glad to have come and seen and tasted terrible, terrible things. I fear that in doing this I have taken part in something truly fell and yet it is that very fact that made it so tantalizing. What manner of hedonist would I be if I let such an opportunity be crashed upon the floor like so much wasted potential?

I would like to note, that while by no means do I feel ripped off by the reward, I just wish it had been something a tad more unique in scope. If I had the chance over I may have stuck with my sanguine curiosities. Ah - such is life!

That was fun and delicious! Thanks so much! I chose to be daring. Would someone PM me the text of the other option? I'd love to see the rest of the story.

Strangely, the story presents me with the most difficult choice in the game so far . . .

I both dread and eagerly await the final click XD

Edit: I think I may regret my choice . . .

I'm very curious what I would have gotten had I chosen otherwise, hmm . . .

I'm with you, Robin, on all counts. Yet my character simply could not have simply devoured that final indulgence.

I think that was definitely who it appeared to be. Seekers and all that.

I thoroughly enjoyed the text. Had hoped to have a unique item or similar to commemorate the three-month experience. I may have kept the other items had I known the reward.

That's a very FL way of looking at things, metasynthie. Perhaps I'm atypical in wanting a cluttered inventory. :-)

Oh, I think having a cluttered inventory and having / trying to keep "one of everything" is quite common especially among long-time players! De Gustibus struck me as a kind of "miscellaneous gobble-up" that exists partially in tension with that tendency, and such tensions are very very FL, if you ask me.

Fun! More than I expected.

It certainly seems possible (from the qualities and items involved) that I could play this content again if I redid the 3 relevant stories. Can anyone confirm or disprove this?
