    Ah-Hah! That's cool, I already have a 4-card residence, but I wouldn't mind snagging a second one(assuming the permits isn't required for the one I already have, which is the lease at the bazaar). That's what I was wondering, if there was any use for them beyond the PoSI stuff.

    Unfortunately, they are used for the Lease at the Bazaar.

    Apart from that, you only need two permits. One to get a ship, one to get a Clay Sedan Chair.

    Oh. Well, that works then ^^ I guess I"ll have some extra echoes to muck around with. Going to need them now.

    So, apparently the wikia is considerably out of date, and not just in regards to what options give what rewards, but also to the cost of certain things. I have been laboring under the assumption that any ship besides a Tramp Steamer is going to cost fate to acquire, however such does not appear to be the case. Of course, It almost seems as though paying the fate would be EASIER, as to get my Zubmarine that I want, it's going to require 20 Strong Back Labored, 30 Whirring Contraptions, and 7 Bejeweled lens! That's going to probably take me the next month to grind out, and that's WITH using about 80-120 actions a day. Talk about a fortune! I'm pretty sure the cost of that is going to be about 2-3x more then a 4-Card Residence did.

    I actually shelled out cash for Fate to get my Ship (Majestic Pleasure Yacht, of course ). Not because I didn't want to grind, but to actually give Failbetter Games some money after all this playing for free. And the grind would be so loooong anyways, so I took the shortcut.

    So, I'm looking for a way to increase my Connected:Bohemian quality. I haven't seen the Kaleidoscope church card in a looooonnnggg time, and I need to up my Bohemian connections to 25 so I can advance in my ambition(for now the other option to progress is out of my reach). The items you can buy in the Bazaar only work up to 20 or whatever, so that's out of the question(not to mention expensive!) as my connected is at 22 with them.

    If you haven't been kicked out of the Empress Court you can continue to write masterpieces. That increases connected every time.

    The church/bohemian conflict card is the only reliable way I know of for persons of some importance. If efficiency doesn't matter, talking to the Sardomic Music Hall Singer gives 1 change point per action. Assuming you have exactly connected 22, that would require 72 actions to increase it to connected 25.

    Sadly thats all I can remember off the top of my head.

    Also, anyone play The Blind Pianist and the Sallow Sprifter besides me? Its been eye opening to say the least.

    Rare successes on that are actually pretty rare, funnily enough. I know that even with all the boxed cats I've passed around, I've only ever received one Starveling so far.

    I died, once. Got a few successes. But Cat yet, sadly. I'm actually content with that, it's not like something good will happen if I open it, only bad things are coming that way. But can't stop trying now I suppose.

    Well, I guess sooner or later we'll get lucky and get a nice little Starveling Cat :) In the meantime, I am officially starting my grind for the materials necessary to actually get my zubmarine. Going to be a loooonggg loooooonnngg road. 20 Strong Backed Labour, 30 Whirring Contraptions and 7 lens. Starting on the Whirring contraptions first, figure I'll grind out 10k Lampslighter Beeswax to start, then go from there to see how much more I'll need. I'm actually figuring probably around 50k of those to convert to the necessary Beetles and Memories of Light. Going to take a ton of turns because once I get to the beetles I'll just be converting small amounts in the hopes of actually making a bit of profit off of rare successes.

    So what is everyone else up to lately in Echo Bazaar? Anyone going to enter in the contest to try to win an Overgoat?

    Sitting in Polythreme being annoyed at my clothing. Also slightly bored. I've done almost all of the content that doesn't require Fate and don't have much to do any more. (The last piece of content requires a Starvling Cat and mine keep running off with my soul)

    I'm also in the long, long grind for a zubmarine, with the occasional break to finish up some storyline or another. Halfway there within the week. It's much faster if you grind whirring contraptions and labour directly in wilmot's end than if you grind the basic stuff to convert.

    Really? I was considering doing that myself, but I wasn't sure which would be faster.

    Yeah. It's about 35 actions per contraption/labour in wilmot's end. IIRC, it's about 3000 beeswax per contraption otherwise, which takes 150 actions just to grind in unfinished business. It's a significant difference, even if we don't count the actions needed for the conversions themselves..

    Sweet! Thanks for the good tip there, I'll be headed to wilmots end now, and I"ll just stay there until I've managed to grind out all the contraptions and strong-backed labour.

    Hehe. Good luck with that! I challenge you to burn 10k Proscribed materials for the tiny bit of connected that it will give!

    Finally checking out that whole "Plaster Rogues and Back-Ally Saints" thing. If I talk to the Spirifer or Pianist, will that make me unable to speak with the Constable or Cheery Man?

    Nope, you can do both of those stories. You will have to go back to the Gossip to refill a quality at certain points though.

    So, I understand there's some manner of story for Persons of Some Importance to meet the Soft Hearted Widow again? Is this started through an opportunity card, or is there a specific area you have to check?

    It's an opportunity card, though as far as I can tell it's not an actual story, just a single card.

    Hi all. Sorry - been super-busy and absent too long. How's everyone doing? All good? Busy times at FBG towers, lately...

    And congrats, Tome! I'm not sure when the next stat-cap increase is happening, but you've probably got a while to enjoy being at those lofty heights. How's the view from up there?

    Oh, it's excellent. If only that darn Numismatrix would turn up... There's also this person who's been lurking behind my shoulder for a while now and won't show their face.

    I'd take another trip to Polythreme to explore the new content, but I'm unsure if I'll be able to keep my Someone is Coming and Having Rodentine Minions Investigate. So I must wait.
