You heard of a diamond "the size of a cow". Even if it's only the size of, say, a pig, or even a kitten, it's worth your time.


For those of you who've been waiting: the finale to Light Fingers begins today. Good luck.


(I did have an early release code as with the others, but forgot to share it here; I'm sorry for that.)

I have reach Ambition: Light Finger 372 and let me just say

[spoiler] I will kill Poor Edward. I will kill him, and every one of his lackey if he has harmed ONE HAIR OF MY CHILD. I WILL STRANGLE HIM WITH HIS OWN GUTS. [/spoiler]

'Tis done.

I think this might be my favourite ambition, story-wise. It was always very different from Nemesis or Bag a Legend, and stayed different to the end. The writing was absolutely delicious.

I am very pleased with all my final outcomes - so pleased I haven't even looked at the other possible paths and rewards yet. I'm not sure whether this is pure luck or awesome game-design on FB's part (or a combination of the two), but my characters' professions turned out to be extremely well-suited to their ambitions' respective rewards: the Licentiate got the Kataleptic Toxicology bonus, the Midnighter the Player of Chess bonus and the Crooked-Cross got Mithridacy and Shapeling Arts!

As someone who's been around for an awful long time, concluding these Ambitions feels somehow incredible, and difficult to put into words. A huge thank-you to Failbetter for all those delicious words! smile

Now, I'll have to play Heart's Desire at some point... Big Grin

(And yeah, that quote on Deepdelver's profile about the "part of darkness that gave birth to light"?
I picked that years ago... Whaaaaa? )

Comedy ending thoughts: You do somehow wrap around to getting your hands on the cow-sized diamond. Problem: Nobody has enough money to buy it and nobody wants to risk cutting it, so you are stuck with what is effectively a very large rock.

The only reason I accepted was because (a) this character is molded to be the most evil, irredeemable villain I can ever concoct and they deserve to suffer and (b) this is my only "single" alt so it wouldn't be out-of-character to agree to such a proposal.

I am terrified if one of the rewards actually has it as a potential "Companion." Easily more frightening than going North, more fatal than getting slaughtered by the Vake, and more lethal than ingesting an entire vial of Cardinal's Honey without the antidote.

Spoilers, y'all.

Wooooow. The multi-year wait was honestly worth it. The whole conclusion was top-notch, from beginning to end. I do not regret any of my choices, but many of them have a sting even afterwards.

I did not believe that Poor Edward could get any worse than he already was, but here we are. He got what he deserved, which is also want he wanted... I can't feel pity for him, but there is an element of tragedy.

I asked the Duchess for help. This resulted in Hephaesta being in a scene which, if it were the art for a heavy metal album cover, no one would ever find out what the music sounded like because the speakers would explode thirty seconds into the intro. A Crack in the Parabolan Sun. The snakes will always know.

I smuggled the Hybrid out... the "fake" funeral was a bit too real. While the Hybrid is all alive and well, the goodbye is permanent. There's a real piece of mourning there. But I can always see my little moonbro up in the ceiling! Everyone can see his light, but I know he shines for me. We are worlds apart, but always part of each other's life.

I hope Dr Vaughan finds peace.

Alright, material rewards.

I am a cat. This is best-in-slot by 2 points for Shadowy and 4(!) points for Persuasive.

Sending the Hybrid to the ceiling grants a Companion which is best-in-slot for Shadowy by 2 points and grants 1 point of Shapeling Arts. It also grants a card while at Zee. I wasn't paying super-close attention to the change points but I believe it grants 8cp of zailing progress and removes 4cp of Troubled Waters.

Hephaesta is in the Lab! Right now she grants 20 Parabolan Research per action. After 15 actions, it looks like she will be able to return to London, and she will have an advantage for Cartographical research.

I told Dr Vaughan to come back to London, but I haven't seen her around yet. I was also expecting to be able to visit the Misermere again but have not found the option yet.

What an incredible ride! Thoroughly gripping the whole way through. My character got to grow and change over this process in ways I didn't expect. [spoiler]She surprised me by getting angry and going after Poor Edward when otherwise she wouldn't have bothered, and cared about her new friends enough to let the hybrid go to the roof (and yeah okay, also to stick it to a Master just a little -- budding revolutionary perhaps?) I just couldn't get her to choose the diamond, whatever its size.[/spoiler] She absolutely would have chosen differently at the start. The Light Fingers journey got her to care, and that my friends, is the sign of a great story.

My general impression is that several of the Ambitions have a single gigantic expense at one point or another. Light Fingers is more spread out. There are a handful of actions that cost a few hundred echoes, and quite a few that cost 50-100, but there's no single gatekeeper like All The Knives.

At the time I was glad for that, because a single big gate sounded frustrating. But I'm an inveterate hoarder so many of the medium-sized obstacles didn't give me pause. I can see how it would affect the pacing if you need to step out of the story every time it asks for a hundred T3 items or whatever.

Good luck! The conclusion is worth everything it takes to get there.

Well I must say I was bowled over with delight when my dirigible full of Rubberies decided to show up out of the blue once more. I'm not even one of those players you see on the forum that are besotted and obsessed with the Rubbery Men, but I was so pleased to see them again, it was a wonderful moment. One of my favourite moments in the game ever, I think.

The idea of a band of Rubberies pootling around the Neath in an airship is a scream. It's almost like something out of Edward Lear. Sort of wish they could sit in the "Transport" slot on my profile, but those guys deserve their freedom to roam. They were a loyal crew and they more than earned it.

I just got the reward for sending the Hybrid to the ceiling.

Nightmares reduction, Searing Enigma, a handful of Making Waves, 2 Lessons Learned, and 2 other Second Chances (forget which type). And an Airs of London roll, for whatever that's worth.

This ending is so melancholy. I'm glad I will keep being reminded of it. I know you're there, little moon-dude. I hope you can see me waving.

I too, have now reached the end of the ambition

[spoiler] I said it before, I will say it again. The real treasure were the friends we mad along the way. Clara, Dr Vaughan (for me now back with her husband for good), Hephaesta, The Music-hall Singer (for me now back on the surface), and of course, the half-miser, Clara's and to a lesser extant my children, that I have safely evacuated to the roof. I fed them the fruit, and so it talked back to me. I never promised to give the children to Mr Fire, in fact I swore to kill him right to his face, and now all of his scheme were for nothing. They got and they will have what they deserve. I let Clara kill Mr Edward, she was the one who deserved to do so, and I allied myself with cats, to attack the fingerkings. It was exciting, sad, scary, and bittersweet. The last paragraph of the ambition spoke about true love, and somehow, I think that's what it was all about. Always, even from the start. I never got that diamond. In the end, I realized I was never looking for a diamond. [/spoiler]

On the one hand, of course not!

On the other hand, perhaps this is an excellent chance to pull a fast one over on a Master. This Ambition is for people with criminal aspirations, so some light marriage fraud really should be on-point.

On the other, other hand (thank you Parabola!), I just spent twenty actions and several hundred echoes hiring gratuitous amounts of thugs and Clay Men. I'm going to be a little salty if that investment doesn't result in even a single person getting punched in the face very, very hard.

I just got to this part as well. Yeah, I read the part about having to get the help of a Glassman before I returned to London, but it does feel like something is missing here. It goes from checking out your Lodgings to suddenly referencing "the Glassman", "your Obliging Glassman" without any introduction.

So far I've loved what has been going on in Light Fingers, the Roof and the Song truly gave me shivers, even on a hot day like this!

But, I have established a Defence 3 Base Camp in Parabola already, and I am a Glassman myself, yet I still need to hire and supply another Glassman to scout for a good spot for a Camp-spot? (Light Fingers 206)

Anybody else feels like this is a bit... excessive, after all I already have a Glassman (myself) and a Camp.

This seems like a bug from LF being released before the Base-Camp update. While Failbetter is on a long weekend at the moment, it'd be good to send in a support ticket about this.

I think you can grind the beeswax from Unfinished Business at Ladybones or a Political Anthem (song) at the Empress's Court.

It's faster to grind them in the Department of Menace Eradication. On 'Light a Candle, and wait' with the chandler. That gives you a constant 123 each time.

It scales from Dangerous, so it may be lower or higher, depending on your stats.

There is also a repeatable part of the Affair of the Box where you can grind Compromising Documents and convert Memories of Light from them instead of Beeswax/Scarabs.

Finally got around to completing this ambition, and holy heck, that was incredible. I don't know if Failbetter has been looking at my character's specific story for the perfect difficult choices, but it sure felt that way.


[spoiler]When the hybrid was born, my character really took it upon himself to become its father. Ignacious has been through a lot of experiences with the shapeling arts, and is by this point not entirely human either, but the hybrid is on an entirely different level, a beautiful testament to the wonders that can only happen in the Neath.

No diamond could have persuaded him to give up the hybrid... Except a diamond cut from the Mountain of Light. The Mountain is deeply important to him. It was drinking its blood that led to the defining moment of his character, and it is his fate to take its light.

It was tempting, it was a very hard choice in-character for him, but in the end he helped the hybrid escape to the ceiling. The ending I got is the perfect culmination to Ignacious's character arc; an arc that started with drinking the mountain's blood and losing his face and ends with fathering a future king of shapelings.

Returning the Rubbery Men to the sky with my zeppelin, saving the love stories from Mr. Fires and orchestrating the cracking of the parabolan sun in a big "f you" to the fingerkings (That was metal btw) are all just icing on the cake of a perfect character journey. I couldn't have written it better myself.

[spoiler]I married my nightmare husband and saved my baby and made nice with the biggest fingerking of all time! And the sisters are singing in London and Hephaesta's going to be ok and Dr Vaughn might see her husband again! It's such a sweet and happy ending! There's bittersweetness to it, things that might have turned out better- the burning of the love stories, the rubbery men don't get a way back to the high wilderness in this telling, but even the happiest stories end that way, even if they don't always tell you they do. This was so wonderful! Thank you. ^_^[/spoiler]

You can always buy Phosphorescent Scarabs from Merrigan's Exchange at the Bazaar in bulk and convert that into Memories of Light, but that may be too expensive for you.

I think you can grind the beeswax from Unfinished Business at Ladybones or a Political Anthem (song) at the Empress's Court. Either way, this is designed to take a while or be ungodly expensive, so just take your time in getting it.

Also, stockpile 5 Bottles of First Sporing by trading Love Stories through Mr Wines's card if you don't have them already; you'll thank me later.

The first is where you become a cat or a snake. You may end up with a clothing item or an Affiliation. The second is the fate of the Hybrid, to give to Mr Fires or to smuggle to the ceiling. You may end up with a Companion or a Home Comfort.
[/spoiler]
There are also several permanent story qualities, whose effect is unknown. They may affect the monthly reward text. Hard to tell.

It's not the hardest rock, but I was mentally scoring that entire sequence with the fourth verse of Bohemian Rhapsody, and its adjutant solos.

I don't think so; it's just a last-minute chance to change your mind, at a cost.

Social invitations of all kinds welcome! Deadly sparring, plant battles, etc. I can also send sips of cider.

poor Edward is dead, perhaps I should have spared him perhaps my child should have decided, but the child would have been merciful. My only regret is I couldn't have made him suffer more in his death

Wow! Gotta say-those monthlies are way more elaborate than the ones I saw for Nemesis and Bag a Legend. I don't regret which Ambition I picked, but after reading through everyone's journals I think after how attached a lot of people got to their kid/how much everyone gave up for their magnificent divine diamond it's very fitting you guys got a meatier description of your relationship with your treasure.

The banner image for... some location... appears to not be loading correctly. My browser is saying a 404 error for "undefined.png." Given everything else, I'd say I'm around 80% confident that's the wrong file name.

I feel like I missed a step in the story. I get back to London, and suddenly I'm gathering honey for a Glassman I've not yet been introduced to?

I, too, found it odd that the Obliging Glassman shows up without any introduction. Still, I'm excited to see what the Parabolan Base-Camp has in store!

I am deeply concerned that this is a realistic possibility for the final reward choice.

I think the requirement for The Hookman House Caper have changed. I now need 50 Laudanum and a Night-Trimmed Frock Coat. Do we know why they changed it?

Is it currently possible to return to Parabola after completing the Hookman House caper? I'm not seeing a storylet for it at my lodgings.

It's at the Honey Dens in Veilgarden. Each trip will cost you 100 drops of Honey.

It scales from Dangerous, so it may be lower or higher, depending on your stats.


There is also a repeatable part of the Affair of the Box where you can grind Compromising Documents and convert Memories of Light from them instead of Beeswax/Scarabs.


Also the repeatable Riding the Savage Cobbles at Concord Square, which gives you 36 Compromising Documents. BLEF!

April 8 is supposedly the day that the Lab and Base-Camp open up for everyone, regardless of Ambition.

The stories might be adjusted when they are no longer associated with an Ambition, but I wouldn't expect much.

Based on experience, the Base-Camp is in the honey-dens of Veilgardens.

Based on Hearsay, the Lab is at the University.
