Speaking as someone who has been enhanced, I'm fully happy with the purchase, although I have tired of my rubbery companion and have since become entangled with a certain spy. The extra options are always interesting, and I look forward to seeing what comes later. Although I do wish I had a few more points in the quality to spend.

Also, I've bought pretty much every fate option. I don't mind giving failbetter my moneys, given how much Echo Bazaar has entertained me over a long period of time.

A nice addition could be to add some indications on the requirements if the fate moves you to another location or opens a new storyline, like they did for the "stroke of luck" in the "A day at the races".
It could be useful to see if you are opening something you can actually do or it is out of your reach. For example, I just got the "gold frame, black painting" card that opens a Repentant forger storyline and I don't know if I have the characteristics to do it or I'm still too low.

Does in contact with a Long-Lost Daughter increase past 6, as I don't seem to have any story resolution or indicator where to go next? Am I just waiting for an opportunity card?

There was at least one point in the story where you must wait for an opportunity; alas my journal on the subject neglects to mention the specific level of that quality at which this occurs. I can say with certainty however that the quality goes higher than six.

Just tried out one of the new Pygmalion options in Mahogany Hall, the Elegant Lady. Not much different from the first two, really, but somewhat interesting.

speaking about fate-locked content, in the Soul Trade storylet, is there a possibility of changing your path after the choice?
I was also wondering if something happens after having reached a merchant of souls 5 (in addition to the location in Ladybones Road and the opportunity card for selling your soul)...

If you return to the Fate tab, you'll see that you can spend Fate to reset the Soul Trade storyline, letting you make a different choice. As for anything happening after Merchant 5? Nope - that's it. But it is profitable.

So when are they ever going to o something with the long lost daughter reward? You know the adopted-ish daughter? Right now it has zero attributes. ?_?

I hope they do; it's never an option on cards or anything. It was very disappointing in that regard; and I hope they correct that.

Double spoiler for Fate locked content and also the TV show Terra Nova:
On the last few episodes of Terra Nova, the various interactions between Sky and Taylor stuck with me as "That's the kind of tumultuous but ultimately beneficial relationship I'd love to see with my 'adopted-ish' daughter." Alas, that sort of thing is nowhere in sight at the moment. The soul trade storyline on the other hand keeps popping up and making me quite jealous of that.

Sounds like the Soul Trade has gotten some good reviews here- is it worth the purchase even for one with attributes far past the 20 recommended? (I'm not yet Important, but my adjusted stats are in the 78-100 range)

Oh certainly. While it's a storyline, at the end of it you'll have either a permanent storylet or a recurring opportunity card, depending on your choice. Both are still useful at the very highest end of the game.

Hi, thanks but actually I don't find it... I just see the possibility of resetting the ambition.

Speaking of which, I find myself unable to discover the true plans of the Bishop and his flock in the fourth coil, even after acquiring some Empyrean Redolance. Could it be because I'm not close enough to the church, or should I look in some other places ?

Alas, I cannot breed the rubbery hound, having no means to access Flute Street. But no, I haven't tried the Tomb Lion. I thought I would not go over the hassle of being exiled to the tomb colonies unless it is necessary.
But your response hints at it being so. *Sigh*

Afraid you'll need the Lion, yes. Not to worry - a little scandalmongering today, some fascinating adventures tomorrow.

I've recently become an Exceptional Friend, and find myself paralyzed with indecision over my admission to the House of Chimes. Is there an option to change your mind, and if so how expensive is it?
