Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Wow, hitting the Ambition limit really saps a lot of the inertia out of playing this game.

    I basically haven't even loaded the page in 2 weeks.

    Just wanted to let you all that on one hand, I'm annoyed that I'm now a part of Twitter, but on the other hand, this seems to be a really intriguing game.

    Look for me under the name Everblight.

    They need to at least have the ambition go as far as the current level cap.

    Does anyone know whether getting to 5 in suspicion, wounds, etc. makes you lose your recurring dreams, or is that just nightmares?

    Is there ANY benefit to clicking on the Cheery Gentleman? It seems like it would be an easy thing to avoid after the first time.

    I play regularly/extremely actively, but, I'm on my way home from Iraq AND have to wait until I get a room/get internet installed, so I'm about a week out from playing regularly again

    I'm focusing on Watchful / Dangerous. Ambition: Bag a Legend! What about those of you who are still playing?

    Was hanging out in Dangerous zone for awhile, but got tired of the missions, soooo now I'm over in the Watchful area. Pretty interesting over here.

    You need a whole lot of booze. 400x 1882, 1000x 1879, go to your lodgings and choose 'open a way to other parts of the city'.

    I'm still playing regularly, but I do not guarantee I will listen to your nightmares.

    My Ambition's the Card Game.... of DOOM. Haven't finished it yet though, I was busy seducing a curator's "sister".

    Did anybody pick the Avenge a Loved one Ambition at all?

    Don't hurry through it. It ends incredibly abruptly. Just have fun with the side missions. Because once you hit the end of the ambition, you won't really find yourself getting as excited about the game.

    I've found some of the other side stories, as well as entering Knife & Candle, to be fun. No, it's not as good as pursuing the ambition, but it's still reasonably entertaining.

    Im still playing this. I decided to reset my ambition from 'to bag a legend' over to 'nemesis'.

    Is anybody else here doing that ambition? I cant find any more quests at nemesis 9.

    They expand the Ambitions now and again, and there are some excellent side-stories to explore, such as becoming a Scholar of the Correspondence, the Dreams, the Eater-of-Chains, and so forth.

    Speaking of expanded ambitions... does anyone have Persuasive/Shadowy over 70 and want some work on the side? I can repay you with... limited player interactions? A voucher for some future service? I could also, alternatively, listen to your horror stories, clear your name of scandal, or stockpile any kind of Second Chance items you wish.

    Anyone still playing this? They just added a new free area to collect some quests, though largely for me it's just filled my opportunity deck with almost impossible skill check cards.
