Christmas Card Requests 2014 Messages in this topic - RSS

It's that time of year again!

As many of you may remember from last year, during the holiday season, you can send Christmas cards to your contacts, bringing all kinds of benefits for both parties, menace reduction and stat bonuses in particular. Now, the exact nature of the card is randomized (based on the Airs of London), and while most of us appreciate a boost regardless of the stat involved, some may prefer to receive one particular boost over another.

I, for instance, would be delighted to get a Paint-Besplattered Mog (the Dangerous card), but as my other stats are already capped at 200 or higher, any other card would be wasted on me. This thread is meant to help people specify which cards they would prefer to get, and which would be better spent on others.

http://community.failbettergames.com/topic5867-christmas-card-request-thread.aspx
Here's a link to last year's thread in case you're looking for more people to send cards to, but keep in mind it's literally a year out-of-date, so try to use information from this thread if possible.

I am quite watchful
And sophisticated
The kindness of others
Will be reciprocated

(My Watchful and Persuasive are capped so I prefer Shadowy and Dangerous. Christmas cards are obviously in limited supply but I'll do my best to send cards to anyone who sends me one).

EDIT:
[s]Since writing this my Shadowy has shot up considerably. It might be best if I was taken off the list for the Suspicious Sort card.[/s]

EDIT AGAIN:
My stats are now capped. I will continue to send out cards but there it is probably best if you send your cards where they can be of greater use.

FURTHER EDIT:
For those of you trying to send a specific card here's a tip. You can change the airs of london (and which card you will send) by participating in "Life on Lady Bones Road". This card has Airs specific options which line up nicely with specific card types as follows.

Babysit a troublesome aristocratic miss -> Paint-Besplattered Mog (Dangerous)
A furtive duo seeks your expertise concerning tattoos... -> Fogscape with Tentacles (Watchful)
Discover the secrets of the Clay Men -> Beguiling Predatory Vegetable (Persuasive)
Uncover society indiscretions -> Suspicious Sort (Shadowy)

You can keep playing these options until the one that matches the card you want to send shows up.

I (RandomWalker), Stroller, and Third Walker would all be delighted to accept any card, and are eager to reciprocate with the same. RandomWalker is currently engaged in some business in Flute Street, but intends to surface (uh, well, at least get closer to the surface) very shortly.

ill glady accept any cards as well as send out a bunch.

and for anyone whos wondering: from what i understand when you send a card, your current airs of london determine what kind it is
  • 01-25 (Paint-Besplattered Mog card) dangerous
  • 26-50 (Fogscape with Tentacles card) watchful
  • 51-75 (Beguiling Predatory Vegetable card) persuasive
  • 76-up (a Christmas Card featuring a Suspicious Sort) shadowy

No need to send any cards my way, as I'm already more or less capped (the Nadir and all that...)

I would gladly accept any card, and will be sending mine (when I get them) to the posts immediately after this one, if they will in turn accept my calling cards when I send them.

I'm happy to send cards, but don't bother to send any to me, as I am stat-capped.

Social Actions: send them to Kade Carrion (she/her; no Tournament of Lilies, please). an_ocelot has gone NORTH and cannot benefit from social actions!

I'm in the same situation as MrUnderhill89, so Dangerous cards (Paint-Besplattered Mog) would be most appreciated. I'll try to reciprocate as much as I can. Happy season!

I would appreciate any cards you can send my way, with a slight preference for dangerous and shadowy, as they are my lowest stats. I'm still waiting on time the healer for my first set of cards myself, but I will reciprocate as soon as I can, to as many as I can.

Update: I have used up my allotment of Christmas cards for this week but I should recieve more next Wednesday. Christmas cards are still welcome, but please keep this delay in mind. I will update again, if further acquaintances would be unable to recieve cards for an additional week.

Sir Fred and Hubris are both stat-capped and don't need any cards. Juniper and Esther, however, could both benefit from Suspicious Sort cards.

Delmar Tramontane's Watchful is capped, but the Sudden Insights from them would be useful. He's also got about 30-ish levels to go before maxing out Dangerous, so the Paint-Splattered Mog would be nice.

I would appreciate any cards, thank you smile, and will reciprocate with cards requested as best I can.


ETA: I should probably mention that time the healer arrived this morning before cards were issued, so I shan't have any for a while.
