Not all humans count, for reasons I don't quite understand yet.

It's worse than that, AFAICT. The same opponent can count sometimes, and not count other times (or count for different amount of duration of swaying blood). I don't know what triggers the changes, but it seems to only happen rarely, and doesn't seem to happen when I just keep fighting in the same zone forever?

Get messages from (consistently):

  • Dockhand
  • Dock Security
  • Ganger
  • Gang Enforcer
  • Filthy Bum
  • Third Eye Hipster
  • Dancer
  • Roaring Drunk

Never get from:

  • Third Eye Ganger
  • Punk
  • Slags Guard
  • Insane Bum
  • Hipster
  • Drunken Dancer
  • Anything non-human, including, Cornered Rat,

Seems maybe only like low-level gangers at first but there are cases where the Filthy Bum counts but the Insane Bum doesn't count.

I just learned bloodied draw in a fight where I was still high on HP (way higher than 50%, even if over 50 hp hurt). So far I am using blood rose pistol and mostly ranged deck.

It seems to me that I have a higher chance of learning a bloodied draw if I use more bloodied dodges in the fight. Either that, or amount of damage evaded by it.

I got this in the sewers, while etheric, fighting a lake serpent. My first round was Bloodied Dodge, Explosive Shot. Then the second and final was Dive For Cover, Bloodied Dodge, Explosive Shot. I learned both Bloodied Dodge and Bloodied Draw after the fight:

You dive for cover.
The lake serpent lurks under water, waiting for an opening.

You haul your blood-covered body away from the worst of the danger.
The lake serpent slams her tail down on you dealing 6 melee damage, but you avoid all of the damage.

And you end it with a single explosive round for 19 ranged damage.
The lake serpent waits until the last moment, then leaps into you, dealing 5 melee damage.

You've won the battle!

Huh, it seems like some of this blood wasn't yours after all.

You regain 2 hit points!

Still, the scare inspires you to move a bit faster next time.

Your gallery visor beeps in confirmation that it uploaded that battle to your gang's database.

Looks like there was a bit of a mix-up in the rewards going out. The leaderboard reward is a sparkling sled ornament.

It's finally time to open all these presents!

You received: spicy present

You received: cookie tin

A pile of gifts came in overnight in Metroplex U wrapping paper. You haul them into your apartment.

You received: 4 bloody sled ornaments

You received: black sled ornament

You received: 7 friendly candle ornaments

I'd say bloody sleds for building, since I almost only did that (kind of weird that they're bloody). Friendly candles are for helping the hipsters since I helped every time I got the option. Black sleds are for scariness, since I only added one more scariness.

Results for this year:

It's finally time to open all these presents!

You received: spicy present

A pile of gifts came in overnight in Metroplex U wrapping paper. You haul them into your apartment.

You received: 9 traditional sled ornaments

You received: 10 bloody sled ornaments

You received: 5 black sled ornaments

You received: 8 friendly candle ornaments

You received: snowy cookie tin

Hey, there's something from the OmniMall here too.

You found: snow globe

So, based on my numbers I think it must be bloody sled ornaments for building, traditional sled ornaments for destroying (possibly a mix-up there?), black sled ornaments for scariness, and friendly candle ornaments are presumably for helping hipsters.

Good news, snakes have appeared in the shadows. No idea on what to test, though.

Edit: Tried using some normal quad item (corduroys) and tried with -evasion (everything is so tiny). -4 evasion power and pants did not seem to matter.

So, doesn't seem to be any signs of the snow snakes so far this year… possibly we need to meet some minimum amount of scariness before that first message will start showing up?

I also haven't seen any signs of the fight option that lets you get to the fuzed snowmen… That part seems a bit odd, since I remember that coming up pretty quickly the last couple years. I'd guess it has something to do with helping the hipsters, and there are two different results from doing that. Maybe we just haven't been giving them enough help?

Edit: The patterns started showing up somewhere around:
According to the screen, there were a total of 228 snowmen built and 300 torn back down. The total Abomonometer reading is 557.

An Abomonometer reading of 500 had not been enough to trigger it. And it was probably at around 290-something torn down when I saw them.

Good idea! No change in message for beating hanging wires that did 8 bleeding damage to me. EDIT: nor when dealing jagged damage to the opponent.

Doesn't seem to do anything when taking large amounts of Eclipse, or when getting beaten to hell.

Also doesn't seem to be any effect from Dripping With Gore. I haven't been able to see if getting hit by something that Leaves Jagged Wounds will do anything.

by CryptodynamicCryptodynamic, 18 Dec 2017 01:31

No change in text for having Peace Of Blossoms or Flicker of Peace active.

With otherwise no apparent change in stats, I'm getting all three messages in various cases I can't quite figure out. It looked like maybe Vs. Evasion for one case but there were counter examples later that it was not.

—Not sure if this was a bug that was fixed, or some trigger, but I got 40 turns of Immortal Lie when using the draught. Same use message.

I had progressed in the dusty story today by going for walk with Princess -> getting dove plaque -> almost done the other part (had survival bulwark).

EDIT: Still get Immortal Lie at the start of the chain; asking if this was bugged.—

EDIT: This was bugged originally; was always supposed to give the effect.

in discussion Hidden / Per page discussions » Greasemonkey Scripts

For people who want to keep using greasemonkey: there has been an incompatible change again, again (just like FF57 itself, so it works out).

See: https://www.greasespot.net/2017/09/greasemonkey-4-for-script-authors.html

@grant GM_getValue becomes @grant GM.getValue, etc …

xmlhttpRequest is now xmlHttpRequest (capital case H)

i=GM_getValue('i',0) is now i=await GM.getValue('i',0), because everything has to be asynchronous
GM_setValue('i',i) is still only GM.setValue('i',i), probably as long as you don't immediately try to getValue it back.

And looks like the entire script code should now be enclosed like this, because it just *has to be asynchronous*:

(async function() {

))();

Does this give any bonus to fighting opponents with swords? "It's very formal and seems to be focused on fighting similarly armed opponents, but you pick up some interesting lessons."

EDIT: Seemingly nothing vs Skeletal Rider (who has a sword), nor vs. Parry.

Doesn't seem to have any special interactions with Parry, mislit rusted sword, or sword hilt.

With charmed shirt, I still get killed by the guards after poisoning the Queen:

She glares at you for a moment, then waves a hand to dismiss you.

Despite her imperious demeanor, you can tell she's weakening. Unfortunately, it would seem she's not too weak to call the guards, who descend on you as you consider your next action.

The pain is unbearable, like needles digging into your flesh, but it soon passes and you find yourself staring at the world with clearer eyes.
