I'm currently grinding away on the "Extend Your Studies" option with the False Snake, and I'm wondering if there's some obvious research-grind option I'm missing? The other massive lab projects offered a chance for huge research boosts from Enigmas or Incunabula and those aren't here for this one. I will grind 1500 pts of Research from the usual options if I have to, but it feels like there must be something I've missed?

Yeah, I'm working on that one, too. Best result is 20 per, I think.

Fate Locked. You need to play through The Empress's Shadow to access Sinning Jenny's Finishing School which remains open after, then teach there during Whitsun.

To the best of my knowledge, only maths/Red Science projects offer that kind of item conversion - and the chance to get Parabolan research in plain old London. Having the right Art topped off or some expert+student combo have pretty high ratios, however, like 30+. The guide on the wiki can give you all the details, though I can tell you that Monstrous Anatomy should be the relevant Art here, and Toxicology might be applied if you have the right Whitsun pet.

Short answer is no, though. In most projects you have to grind Research directly.

Inconvenienced by your aunt (15 fate) "This will open up a set of new opportunities."

But where? Or must I wait for new cards? Nothing at Moloch St or my home, no hint in my profile. Spent fate, seemed like nothing happened... I'msure something did somewhere though.

Send me anything you like. Be decent, though. Bad stuff is fine if you attach a warning.

I believe the story continues through cards, yes.

OK thanks. Was a little worried it might be a bug.

"Opportunities" usually means cards, I think

What is the mechanical point of managing the tracklayers' displeasure? I wouldn't want to let it raise too much on RP bases, but...

It modifies the difficulty of a few options. Mostly changing TLU leadership, or talking to the current leader. It doesn't seem to have almost any use at all after reaching the end of the line, although it could always affect things in TLUville when that happens.
