I should be glad by the lenient TtH, but this still feels wrong... this isn't what I prepared for. I'm not the most extreme example here, but I still burned what was for me not an insignificant amount of cash to get the Night-Whispers needed for obtaining pails, and not to mention the few I already had because I've always wanted to do this challenge. I also sold my soul thrice in the season (once last season and twice this season) to get the materials, and huffed a few vials of tears when they could've gotten me a second vial of Master's Blood.

I got my tattoo! And my noman only survived this long because Clathermont’s opened a day before my TtH.

The moment when the community complains when a challenge is too hard, but also too easy! Big Grin
Here are my thoughts on this:
1) Probably too many people tried, failed
2) While waiting for the ambition conclusions it may have been easy to forget about your white friend.
Thus, the rates were lowered to accommodate more people with the requirements.
3) New content?
4) Advertising a great story for more people. With it's 10th anniversary maybe more joined and a paragraph that requires months of preparations may seem too much for some
5) FBG is toying with us
6) While plotting to increase them next year
7) Implemented the sudden death of your Noman after a certain date. A Noman can't live 1 year no matter what. This sudden death is my theory on how they'll prevent players from doing this.


I know I haven't spent the most because I was too greedy with my Tears, but someone here probably wasted the equivalent of 100 buckets and 20 buckets. I stopped at the buckets.


Congratulations to all who are getting their lovely tattoos!

I got my tattoo! I’m so happy and sad. Cause I know my Noman will melt tomorrow.

Also, I can’t seem to actually find the tattoo quality anywhere in my myself page.

This. Next year, TtH will start taking 100x Noman's Friend within the first week, just to keep us on our toes smile

It's possible people have forgotten that there is an actual devil in the actual Lord Mayor's office. A devil who is promising to look after people's souls. What is wrong with everybody?

Lost another 75 NF on 11/02

It seems I overshot the requirement by several hundreds, did not expect it to go that easy this year. But anyway, this is done now:

Congrats to all who managed to get the tattoo, Gant or not! And thank you all for reporting your weekly loss, it's appreciated. Please continue to do so if you still have your frozen friend.

To put the numbers in perspective: For the last three years, you needed somewhere around 400 max NF to be 100% safe (assuming you start mid-January, right after TtH). For the same time period this year you only needed 250. Maximum. That's a huge difference in supply cost.

If you started a week later (~24th), and were very lucky and got the minimal melt for two weeks, you would have only needed 10 more NF than the 100 you start with. That's a little more than one use of a Pail. It's all quite strange.

I'm interested in seeing if they decide to raise the melt rate again, at all, this year. As far as I've seen it's still at 60-90.

I don’t have it as an option to select in my scrapbook or in any of my story, accomplishments, or circumstances qualities.

Edit: it shows up now when I search for it. It definitely wasn’t there when I first did the story though.

Maybe they put in some extra noman-event that's later in the year, and slowed down the melting to make it reachable. I'm gonna keep watching and see whether anything comes up. If anyone sees something, post it!

I'm definitely not complaining. I overspend to keep the little guy alive, but I'm completely capable of imagining my character doing it, and in a sense that makes for a good story.

Anyway, TtH came today (14th February) and the loss in Noman's Friend was just 78.
