    Sweet jeepers, I've built up a lot of Admired while farming honey in the palace.

    Yeah mine went up to 48 or something real crazy.

    I'm pissed, I lost all my dream qualities on accident messing around with mirrors in the carnival.

    You stepped into the insanity one didn't you?

    Stuff like that is why I always try to have a thing of honeyed laudanum on hand. Just in case.

    Of course, that didn't help that one time I accidentally cleared my fire sermon before exiting the insanity. Or any of the times I experimented with a Dr. Schlomo option (most recent brought What the Thunder Said down from 16 to 15).

    A bottle of the Good Stuff. Ol' reverse Santa was pleased with me.

    Got back into this recently, working through the new content. It looks like they took away the turns per day limit, which is cool.

    Also, I just noticed that they added titles for certain faction levels, like Familiar for 20+, or Warmly Welcomed for 100+ and Othatharooth-! for Rubbery 20+

    boredom at work drove me to play again a while back. Managed to get myself to Polythreme and do my Ambition there, as well as stock up on a hell of a lot of expensive goods. Also got two new homes: the hotel and the store near the bazaar. Now I'm working towards getting a pass to the Infernal colony of the Iron Republic.

    Oh, and they also added easier means to gain honey, books and primordial screams (among other things), and somewhat improved the expensive parts gathering stuff. At least made the latter more interesting.

    Been spending time in Polythreme, land of the clay men.

    Be sure to bring an exceptional hat, I'll say this much.

    yes.

    they made the late game grind a bit less grindy, for one thing.

    polythreme is calm and serene compared to the republic

    at least there they don't have rains of glass shards and devils talking politics as their faces melt

    resurrecting this thread because the game is still fun and there's definitely new material since the last time you played.

    also, I'm currently sailing lost in the Unterzee, Nightmares 9, trying to find a damn Plated Seal.

    Oh I guess there's the Knife and Candle thing going on again.

    I stopped because I got to the labyrinth and it seemed like I'd broken the one quest I had

    Broke as fuck and the bills past due, all amounts assist and are kindly received.

    you probably haven't broken it. unless you're talking about the illusionists one. I have no idea how to pick that back up.

    yeah there's still grinding, to a certain degree, but I think they've lessened it.

    I lost contact with several of the forumers who played because I got rid of my Twitter so now it only pulls from FB so I've just been soloing this lately, but it's still a lot of fun

    whoaa

    I picked this up again just a few months ago after having left it for over a year


    being a person of some importance is disappointingly grindy but I'm still plugging away

    I like the concept of house robbing and book writing even if I haven't spent much time doing either of those


    right now I'm working on building a ship and acquiring all of the nicest gear that's not the overgoat

    tooling around on a ship is great.

    I have the Zubmarine. it's pretty neat.

    I can't recall. I think it's doable without spending money? I mean, I buy into the Special Friend thing, which gives double candles for a month, among other things.

    It was more like Epic Levels. Money was only a factor as much as it ever was.

    I got the pleasure yacht, and paid in my accumulated Fate to get it done quickly. Very worthwhile, and you get a nice bonus on the sea of Voices when you do

    by the way, anyone happens to have an invitation to the Temple Club? there are a few of those still going around, and it's useful if you want to gain some connections with the Masters of the Bazaar (by exchanging 2500 Romantic Notions, but still, better than nothing)

    no that's something else

    person of some importance is the stage of the game you hit after all your qualities are 100 or above, either naturally or because of the gear you have


    you can start earning assloads of low tier items but the costs for all the posi storylines are much much higher, and getting rid of your menaces becomes such a chore it seems like it's easier sometimes to just go to jail/nuts/die/etc

    the best way I found to make Echos is to pick up an occupation. I've chosen Trickster, and every few days I get a bunch of assorted high, mid and low level items, most of which I can sell for a good price.

    And a good way to keep the nightmares low is to NOT get an obsidian gymnasium. The card that starts that storylette can be refused as many times as it comes up for a reduction in Nightmares

    man, I've been out in the sea too long. I'm pretty sure I don't remember occupations

    Yeah it's okay. I used to know all the tricks to reducing them but I forgot. Nightmares are the tough ones.

    Nightmares can be reduced with reasonable reliability via the drinks stall at the circus/fair thingy. Mulled wine, I think. There's also laudanum, which is mostly better, but it's literally habit forming, which reduces the effect. Unless you use rare cards that reduce the habit formed.
