The text indicates there's a number of other names in their catalogue that aren't up for sale, so presumably they'll update the roster with new names every year or so, like the Incarnadine Robe.

Also, perhaps the equivocation of the coin and the gunpowder with the devilbone die and the scintillack indicates that they're going to be added to the game elsewhere in the future? I know something like this was already done with Flint, where a bunch of little items like stygian ivory and royal blue feathers were added as minor rewards in that story first, then distributed throughout new content over the next few years.

One thing I found really interesting was the Justificande Coin, as I only know of one reference to it from a Ambition teaser.
edited by The Curious Watcher on 2/9/2020



I feel like the Justificande Coin might be an item that a Heart's Desire player will have to get to progress, so someone who got if from the trance dream can jump past that step. It shares an icon with First City coins, the poker chips used in the Marvelous. A further connection is that First City coins are gifted in sets of 30, a reference to Judas trading Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. The source and the stamped message "ONE DAY YOU WILL FORGIVE" makes me imagine that it's some kind of religious relic related to Judas' betrayal. If someone has an echo of that option, I'd love to see exactly how the conversation went down. I have no idea how this would work in the Marvellous, but that seems the most likely ambition its related to.

The action that gives the coin: https://www.fallenlondon.com/profile/PSGarak/17691932
The conclusion of the dream-trance: https://www.fallenlondon.com/profile/PSGarak/17692170
You were probably expecting something more decisive. I expect the Bishop was as well. Which is why that was not the approach that was taken.


Thank you for the echoes!

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share the echoes for Captain Amelia Whetlock's story. I'm not that interested in the compaion herself, so arranging a series of fate gift exchanges doesn't seem worth it for a few storylets. But I'm a Sunless Skies player, so I'm very eager to learn about the Optimistic Godslayer's dear departed captain.

There is his text on my personal page. Coincidentally, I just did not record the text of this funny demon because of a mistake. Thank you for releasing his text.

Thank you for the echo. I'm glad that Wetlock at least got one of her dreams fulfilled, in a certain way, what with how the rest of her story ends. And I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean by a "funny demon" or "releasing his text."

Sorry to ask for another Fate-locked echo so soon, but I just drew the companion card and noticed that the Nacreous Survivor is an option. Again, since I know him well from Sunless Seas, I'd like to be able to see what the story bit is for when you get him.

I also bought crimson captain, but forgot to save his story on the personal page, and I did n’t read the story carefully. I ’m not a ssk player, so I ’m not clear about the captain ’s story. To the point that he may be a devil, I saw a paragraph on your personal page that I suspect was a text description I missed.

Does sending a gift and having the recipient reject still work to get it yourself for Fate Gifts over 20?

I certainly hope the Justificande Coin isn't required for Heart's Desire. I have no desire to repeat the process of getting to a (currently) top tier career for one, little coin.

If you need a Justifcande Coin, there will probably be some other process in the Ambition where you can obtain it. This is just for people lucky enough to be playing with the right profession during a limited event.

I'm open for both fate and non-fate trades. Some interesting looking new companions this year...

Yes, it does. Did this myself last night so I can absolutely confirm that this still works.

I hope you're right, assuming it is needed for Heart's Desire in the first place. We'll find out in April, I guess.

Does anyone have trouble getting the "Encounter at the Feast" card? I have yet to see it for my main, but my alt has been getting it once a day. I've been flipping cards for my main like mad for weeks (due to Ambition Nemesis bat reasons), but no joy so far for "The Feast" festivities or in said ambition (on the plus side, my scraps have gone from 1225 to 1750).


May I know how long the "Encounter at the Feast" card will be around? Will it become a pinned storylet for those of us whom RNG dislikes so passionately?

I’ve got the Encounter but the Lady in Lilac is snubbing me. Here’s hoping the RNG starts to smile on us soon. And good luck with your bat!

I'm with you. I've had the Encounter at least twice now, but have yet to see Lilac.

I drew Lilac when I still had maxed out masqueing. I've only drawn one Encounter card, I would like to draw more soon.

Many thanks to those who responded. Thank you also for the kind words regarding the elusive bat. Let's keep fingers and toes crossed for RNG's favour.

Wish I could send the Encounter and Lilac cards to some of the folks here. They keep cropping up for me.
