    It looks like you're asking people to send you Fate points, by spending their real-world money on you.

    Don't be a beggar.

    Edit: Incidentally, the "A Box of Ten Delights" action is no longer in the game afaik.

    Nope. Being non-native - as am I - they are just asking FBG to return A box of Ten Delights as an option. Pretty sure that's that.

    That explains the aggressive response, which surprised me on what is normally a good-humoured forum. Along with many others, I fancy, the request seemed entirely innocent to me. I was completely unaware of Kaiyuu's point (and am not even sure it is true nowadays, or at least not without a great deal of effort).

    But it would take months. Yes, there are dribbles of free fate in the game, some at the beginning to introduce the concept, one imagines.

    But some of the branches need to be played for weeks if not months before a couple of points emerge at the other end (anyone for opera? Or cheesemongering?). Who on earth would have the time to do that not once, but multiple times (3 at least to acquire enough fate to play one of the very early, short extra stories.)? It would require astonishing stinginess as well as great dedication.
    It doesn't seem a reasonable undertaking at all. And presumably the wiki gives information on free fate points, so the knowledge may well come from there rather than being some dastardly plan.
    (To clarify: I am an EF and have been from the start; I also purchase extra fate and have on occasion given fate to one other person.)

    It's definitely a slow strategy, and most people wouldn't bother, but the possibility was still a meaningful problem. Not only is using alts like that against ToS, but the 10 Fate gift was removed when a couple people backed Sunless Sea entirely through free fate. Just because most people act in good faith doesn't mean everyone will.

    Optimatum, a ruthless and merciful gentleman. No plant battles, Affluent Photographer requests, or healing offers; all other social actions welcome.

    PM me for information enigmatic or Fated. Though the forum please, not FL itself.

    They disabled it to prevent people from making tons of alt and pooling fate onto a single character. 10 fate is easy to acquire from 1 time sources.

    It's an unfortunate truth that the game needs to make money, so some things are behind a paywall. Personally I've resigned myself to considering fate things beyond my reach, though maybe soon I'll have some luxury money to pass FBG's way since they've helped me with many a bored afternoon.
