Yeah, that's pretty much exactly what frustrates me. It's usually optimal for me to have both the Visionary and Profound students in the lab, so on for example Red Science experiments, I have a 1/3 chance of drawing the card I actually want to play once I have "Work With Your Equipment" and "Direct Your Own Research" sitting there.

This means playing a full stack of actions in the lab requires drawing 80-120 cards and discarding them repeatedly, which is really avoidably frustrating.

Would it be possible to get a warning on options that increase "Liberation of the Night"?

I've been trying desperately to keep it at zero, then rose it to two unknowingly by raising renown, and then accidentally raised it again by ironically trying to lower it. It wouldn't be so bad, but - a certain point - the only way to lower it seems to be by fate (according to the wiki)? A warning in advance would be pretty handy to avoid later needing to pay real-money or just keep it forever.

There are lots of ways to lower Liberation now - mostly on the railways.

Unless I'm missing something, all those seem to be about building watch-towers and raising brightness. I couldn't raise the brightness any more on one, and lowering it first just increased LoN, and I don't have the option to build any more towers.

Many but not all. You can also give speeches on the benefits of light at Ealing and Jericho, or sell propaganda to the Veteran Revolutionary, or play as Black at the chessboard and then sabotage them from within.

Thank you!

I don't know how to play as black, but I just found the opportunity card that lowers LoN, so that's helping a lot.

Can the Ealing Garden's "Boarding Again" storylet be moved to the bottom of the list, to better match its position at every other Train Station? It's somehow worse than if there weren't a "rule" to break ("Scroll down and click bottom option to get on the Train" and also the more general "Last Option Is The Exit/Finish Option").


In positive feedback, this new Dog portrait in the Empress' Court is very good! I know they're fictional, but please tell them that they're a good dog and I love them.

Would it be possible to return some of the text from the now-retired Newspaper opportunity cards, as Doubt Street storylets for example?

I agree that the card system as such was less than optimal, but the text on some of them was hilarious and always made me laugh. I'd be sad to never see "An Undignified Ruckus" again... wink

Would be nice to get a ribcage that has a lot of tails, since stockpiling jet black stingers seems to be a thing that is very easy to do by accident now.

Regarding the upcoming changes to social actions, I would very strongly urge you not to fully remove all trace of our sanguine ribbons and chess wins with the "trade-in", some of us are really rather attached to our record of past triumphs. Perhaps they could be replaced with respective qualities of no further mechanical relevance? A remembrance of chess games and duels past?

I have a question regarding the Epistolary mechanic. Reading a letter about the Correspondence is supposed to increase Dangerous, Watchful, and Scholar of the Correspondence as well as giving Wounds. I just read such a letter, and it indicated that my Dangerous, Watchful, and Scholar qualities are still capped at what they were. Will those caps be changed or lifted in the near future?

I am very disappointed that, when you removed duels and chess, you did not replace them with new ways to gain watchful and dangerous second chances that are similar mechanically to coffee and loitering. The new letters are not a sufficient replacement, especially since so many of them require free evenings.

As for the letters themselves, I am very happy that you decided to allow us to send and receive letters even when not in London, and I hope that you choose to extend this mechanic to other social options. Sending and receiving gifts is an obvious example of a social action that would benefit from this new mechanic.

On the topic of social actions more generally, one of the problems we currently face is that between the laboratory, Parabola, and the upper river, many mid to late game players simply aren't available for social actions very often, or at least not with any great consistency. This makes finding players to interact with much harder.

One easy place to start would be to allow social actions in your laboratory. I understand if you don't want players to have access to menace reduction in their lab, but since entering and leaving your lab no longer costs any actions, this is an annoyance at best, rather than any real impediment. Perhaps other locations in London, such as Jenny's Finishing School, could be similarly unrestricted, although these would need to be looked at on a case-by case basis.

Other places like Parabola or the Zee are harder, as there is no narrative reason to allow unrestricted social actions (the opposite, really). One way to address this would be to make more social actions asynchronous, as Letters currently are. As I mentioned above, sending gifts would be an ideal candidate to start with, as would sending and receiving calling cards, Another possible solution would be to add a limited set of social actions in these locations, such as using bats to send letters over the Zee, or visiting players in their dreams in parabola.

There is an option on the chessboard, "Contemplate a perfectly equal position",that does nothing at all besides waste an action. I've wasted maybe 10 actions on it and its two brothers, over a few games separated by weeks, because it sure *looks* like those are options you would take to advance the clock without changing the standings, i.e. when going for a Stalemate and already in balance.

I don't have a recommendation; I'm just pointing out a thing I don't like.

Sure would be nice if the goat-requiring options in All Fear the Overgoat were buffed so that they're better than the default option.

I would like to be able to permanently opt-out of certain options that become available when you are a POSI: namely (but not only), the Velocipede Squad.

The Knuckle-Scarred Inspector kept marking up my handsomely-painted door (his card came up a lot!), so I finally tried to get rid of him by saying (I thought) "sure I'll stop by", not planning to follow through. This appeared to do what I expected, removing that card from my deck and moving him to a storylet in Ladybones Road, just as certain other POSI opportunity cards (such as invitations to check out Clubs), once you play them, move to the Bazaar Side-Streets to become gold storylets. But it turns out I've actually JOINED the Velocipede Squad, and another card was added to my deck that keeps pestering me to turn up.

I do not want to play this storyline. Is there a way to get off the Velocipede Squad without participating?

I wish there was a way to reread the messages you send to other people in-game. I'm the kind of person that likes to reread those types of things (whether to remember, recap, or see if I made any typos) but I don't see it in the messages tab. Just a small thing.
