Found out I cannot convert Oneiromantic Revelations into a Parabolan Parable, as I have not touched Parabola content yet. Ironic, since my current profession is a Silverer.

I need to be a Parabolan Commander.

Anyway, I've used my Captivating Ballads to redeem for all the items I want this time.

I only got enough to make 20 gunpowder, and i almost got arrested. The rats' markup may be steep but hey, it's an import and I won't increase my criminal record.

Suspicion is a bugger. I'm reluctant to ask for help as it increases the other party's suspicion.

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

Do anything that shuffles Airs of London, and if it's 25 or less do Confound the Constables under Opportunism in Spite. Or send letters to a Licentiate.

If you have Rostygold to spare, you can write me (or any other Licentiate) a name in Gant. 500 rostygold and 1 action*, -6 CP Suspicion, -6 CP Scandal.

Suspicion is easy to deal with, just stay in Spite and do what needs to be done.

Scandal, on the other hand, is annoying. Probably because the success rate for attending church seems to be much lower than the advertised 70%.

New grind, fresh from the oven! 4.94 EPA (or 47.67 Rat Shilling per Act plus some bric-a-brac).

...
Added the 10% and 5% rare success because I saw a post over Reddit too.
With 25 newspapers you end up with 3907.02 / 753.1 = 5.1879 EPA instead of 3740.92 / 753.1 = 4.97 EPA.

Only now I realized there are differences in initial EPA, but the final result is clear: RS makes this grind over 5 EPA.

One action. Sending the letter after its written is free. 🙂

Whenever I get to repeating/complicated decimal points, I always round down at every step to avoid over-promising. Although on seeing the other rundown they're absolutely right that their Salacious-140 newspapers are slightly better than my Outlandish-104 ones, although only if one slights another player (or an alt) every lap, which seems irritating to incorporate into a grind. But, either way, a ~5 EPA Grind in London! Well, for 2 more weekends, although one can do Journal acquiring and upconverting during the week days, too.

The Rat Market is frankly a brilliant idea. If you periodically make a random assortment of items way more valuable than usual, that rewards the obsessive hoarders that compose like 80% of this community and also it organically creates new viable grinds.

Ignacious, the Fluid Professor, he will accept most social invitations, including boxed cats and affluent photographers (but only betrayals), though he is absent-minded and might take more time than entirely necessary. He apologizes.

Any clue what’s going to be sellable this week? Bit stumped by the clues

Unless I'm misreading them, the Rat-Season clues seem to be a week late, "hinting" at the item we began to cash in the week prior:[spoiler] "Deep in the earth we go, where things spark and ignite." for the second week of Unlawful Device sales.
"Sing your sorrow, but quietly. You never know who's listening. The tunnels have ears still unclogged!" for the second week of Captivating Ballads.
"But scatter whence? Freedom is for dreamers and such tales as they can wake to tell" for the second week of Parabolan Parables.
"There was a Dimmest-Darkest once. Pray to the Saint there shall not be again" isn't outrageous for Uncanny Incunabula.[/spoiler] That said, I doubt whatever's new will be a better deal than hawking Incunabula this weekend and next.

I sent in a bug report about the "hints" being a week late, and haven't heard back yet (not even "working as intended").

The new item cycling in should be a replacement for the Captivating Ballad. If the hint applies to that item and not the Incunabala, then I would guess it refers either to Night-Whispers or maybe a False Hagiotoponym.

Looks like you got it and we're back on track! Or, ah, finally on track, I guess. Nightwhispers can be turned in for 900 Shillings (44% better than the bazaar), and Fabulous Diamonds are for sale as well as a new Rat's Head Cane for 3200 Shillings, which may or may not actually be useful (mediocre stats, so probably just a collector's piece).

So...the rat cane seems to be a curiosity rather than a weapon, a mistake certainly but I suppose it is sort of a curiosity

Fabulous Diamonds can be converted into Scrip easily. This week's Rat Market is a good one for my Hellworm fund. Even the Judgements don't know where they came from, but I have a Night-Whisper stockpile that will take the better part of the weekend to liquidate.

Ha! Mr Stones is going to swim in diamonds.
Researching Attar now might be more interesting, especially with Cantigaster

I need that Cider!

Good stock! I had a similar amount, but sold most of them earlier in Hellworm grind. Only 102 left.

My Captivating Ballads are useless this week, but I have 70 Uncanny Incunabulums, and I get four of them every week as a Silverer's reward.

Already got the Pair of Lenguals from a previous week.

So...

3200 Rs for the Rat's Head Cane.
3125 Rs for the Fabulous Diamond.

I have no Mirrorcatch Boxes, so the Irrigo-Filled Mirrorcatch Box can't be obtained. Tried my luck at Waswood... no luck.

Better go farm some Night Whispers now. Expedition, Sanctuary of the Crimson Petals. Uncommon chance, one in five?

Thank you!
Well, that stock was supposed to be cashed in 3 years ago right after I finished SMEN! upset But I will only sell as much as I can and probably sell the rest to the Bazaar for E.
