Note I said 'Next To'. A Change In Souls, resets the Soul Trade storyline, is NEXT TO Reset Your Ambition.

If you've already done the Soul Trade storyline, the option to reset it on the Fate page is called 'A Change in Souls!'

My apologies! I think I was looking for another drawing and the idea that the key could indicate also the resetting of the Soul Trade didn't occur to me...

I do apologize for bothering those of you who are implicated in a struggle against hell, but even after acquiring an ocelot, hound and stallion, that thick-headed priest still won't let me know about his no doubt insane plan.
Which, I find, to tell the truth, rather frustating.

I have a Merchant of Souls 3, and it's been about a month of card-flipping. My last hint was simply that I needed to wait for the devils to get back to me. Is there a specific place I need to be?

Its a card that shows up eventually. That particular story kind of just takes forever.

Can't you force your way onto the storyline using a storylet from the clay coalman?

Yeah, that's how I did it.

At last, it seems I am finished with Secrets Framed in Gold. I chose to trust the Forger when he told me that it was the last layer of paint, and sold it. It would be most dangerous to allow oneself to slip into paranoia and madness from dealing with the Neath's secrets... Of course, I now can't help wondering if that was the proper choice. Has my caution caused me to miss out on some tantalizing lore?

I don't remember exactly what happened when I finished it, but I don't recall there being a significant amount revealed about the Bazaar or its secrets.

spoiler: A Master comes to take it away once the last layer is done. It happened rather abruptly for me, actually: my quality went from about 9 to 53 all at once, and i'd wondered if I'd missed something. You do get some amount of Connected: Masters and a large quantity of something else - possibly Proscribed Materials?

I won't spoil to much but I will tell you this. That wasn't the last layer.

When the forger tells you that he's done everything, he's right - there's nothing left under the paint bar the canvas itself. There is no sane reason to strip the last layer of paint away. Doing so will bring no joy - only grief. There are things that we are not meant to know.

I made the same decision as you, and I stand by it. The Forger did me a damn good turn, and I wasn't going to antagonise him. Maybe there was something written on the canvas - but there are a lot of mysteries in the Neath, and only a few good friends.

Not to undermine your noble ideals, but my Acquaintance with the Repentant Forger seems to have survived the whole ordeal thoroughly intact (rather strange, considering the sorts of suffering I put him through). I'm not sure if this was an error, or if there will be another use for it, but that's how it is.

Oh, I let my forger go mad from playing with things that man shall not wot of, and then picked up another on my next visit to New Newgate. After all, it's not like there's a shortage of them.
(Why yes, I am remarkably Heartless and Ruthless. Thank you for noticing)

Ah, the ever-present lure of insanity. It's a pity to hear that I've potentially missed another step of the story, but I'm content in the knowledge that I will not needlessly self-destruct for the base instinct of curiosity.

Is the Secrets Framed with Gold line not repeatable?

I greatly enjoy meeting delicious new friends and participating in deliciously exciting new adventures! Please feel free to drop a card to meet for dinner, exchange favors, give an interview, or any other activity that comes to mind. I DO particpate in exchanges requiring Fate, BUT you must contact me first; twitter, facebook, or here on the forums via PM.

Note: I am currently exchanging parcels with a large number of dear friends and my parcel opportunities are rare. I am always willing to exchange but your rate of return may be rather slow. To find others to exchange with I recommend the Starveling list.

No. It's a once-only storyline.

Speaking again about the Soul Trade... there is an option to exchange 1000 souls to get a number I don't remember of brilliant souls. Now that the economy has been introduced, is that option favourable?
Of course it is from the point of view of the number of actions that must be spent, but is the exchange rate good?
