An update because ...

I am about to hunt the Vake!

So, it turns out that grinding menaces for the fool's rewards was totally worth it, because otherwise I'd now be grinding for tears of the bazaar. I needed that for about 3 steps in my ambition past where I was. Next stop in parabola means immediate battle. My dangerous has hit 200. I have my trusty harpoon. Let's do this!

In Birthday Fate, I am most pleased with the Roseate Antagonist and the Pirate Poet. I still haven't played the exceptional stories I bought, and still haven't decided on what the final two will be. Remaining fate to be saved for sacksmas. Anyway, the November ES was a lovely monstrous one, even if I did not kill the beast. The professor is very keen on killing monsters but talking animals are not necessarily monsters. Non-sapient wild animals are to be hunted, of course, and evil beings.

Questions
1. is there any way to reset the Jack of Smiles story? I regret the ending I chose.
2. Written in the Glim, and Upwards: if you've done both, how much overlap is there? Which one is "better" from your PoV?

Upwards is very short, with a recurring path to get bones. Written in Glim is a full, lengthy ES, the result of which is a card option at Zee. I enjoyed Wtitten in Glim more, Upwards is very short. But Upwards has useful bones. There is not much overlap at all, beyond part of it are in the same area.

Thanks! Written in the Glim, then, for now. I don't rule out buying more in the future, but it will be much less at a time.

And wow, that was a wild ride just now. The Vake is nowhere remotely near being finished off, though this was a very major step. So much to do and so much to buy, I hardly know where to start. Probably back burner it while I get to Ealing, learn to play chess, and chase up some other story backlog. We're talking thousands of echos in materials, and I have few. A reservation at the Royal Beth might help.

You can find the option of "Another round with Jack" at "Send a message to a contact". It costs 20 Fates.

Thank you! And done! It's really been bugging me that my monster hunter didn't kill this monster. What was I thinking?

And that concludes the big birthday fate splurge.
Flint, Written in the Glim, All Things Must End, two Hallowmas companions, and reset Jack. And some left over for Xmas.

I've been moving on with local backlog, and have paid my first visit to the Wakeful eye (got the minister of war on my side) and sided with the "Kashmiri princess" over the box. Delighted to find it unlocks a shadowy gain grind that is just right in difficulty for me.
