Nothing for taking a lot of Eclipse at once with these installed.

Not sure how long ago this was fixed but it currently gives bonuses against all four Midgard drones including helidrone. Nothing against shovel drone as expected.

Shortly after getting Family Weaponty, I crafted:

  • Empty clip + ghoul teeth - no zip gun recipe (10 energy of Weapon Adjustments)
  • Pistol fittings + bone chips - got zip gun recipe (10 more energy of WA, for 20 total)

I suspected that crafting anything out of pistol fittings unlocks it, through Crypto reports getting it from crafting from an empty clip. So maybe either pistol fittings or empty clip unlocks it sometimes, or you need to craft something with both of each?

I finally got this, after carving another two swans for which I had already put down bricks a while ago. I did have a coronation crown on, but based on notes so far I didn't really expect that to be necessary. Otherwise, my equipment and effects are basically the same as they have been this whole time.

I killed only the basic Fresh Snowman, I am pretty sure. I tried attacking a few of the harder ones once or twice but didn't win.

I think there must be some particular trigger that causes this to appear. I know borkman has gotten the Icy Throne to show up, but I think not the queen yet, and I haven't seen the throne yet at all. I've definitely placed a bunch of bricks and carved a number of swans, and I've now left 4 bricks unused just in case.

Given how dangerous the queen is also makes this feel like there would be some particular active trigger that kicks things off. Al, what kinds of snowmen had you killed prior to this stuff starting?

Nothing special for taking Eclipse with this equipped.

Nothing special for using Frost Breath against opponents. Nothing special for killing snowmen with this equipped.

Wow, the names you ended up with for the Techniques are way better than mine. Consider them appropriated!

I seem to be getting this all the time now, perhaps just Etheric + certain scariness level + certain number of collective(?) ice blocks carved? (I had Frigid Rulership, Classic Carols and chisel equipped the first time I saw her, but got the encounter again shortly after without them.)

Seems to have very high unopposed power bonus, so make sure your deck can consistently 4-long chains if possible.

Full combat text below, but tried various ideas:

  • Seemed to take minimal damage from Melee, Fire, Etheric attacks (may just need more attack power).
  • No obvious change with Classic Carols active, holiday sweater equipped, ice carving chisel equipped.

This seems somewhat rare, maybe some combination of triggers:

  • I added about 10 ice blocks I think, having carved 2 swans this year
  • I was etheric both times I got it
  • All 50 energy of Frigid Rulership ran out before I got it again (though it was a little while after that)
  • I had ice carving chisel the whole time.

Nothing special with High Brow and/or regal crown equipped.

If anybody has some snowman heads to spare, I'm working on trying to get the max scariness up to 500. Up over 250 for now, to at least unlock the staring snowman. Got a stack of heads from GoldS, plus my own stockpile, but it's not going to be quite enough to get me to 500.

So it doesn't seem like we have much in the way of combat records on these from last year, but is anybody else finding them to be rougher than they were previously? I'm finding them nearly impossible to actually damage, and I don't remember it being so bad last year. I certainly got plenty of feather drops last time around.

Love these! Worth the wait! Very nice for the dual effect:

So, in terms of mystery unlocks, I don't have too much to add from what I brought up on the discussion page for Christmas 2019, I think. Possibly we might get a new carving option at the Piled Blocks Of Ice. No guarantee, but it sounded like the plan was to be able to eventually add more stuff there. On that note, if you don't have unmelting ice bricks left over from last year, you might want to stock up on those. Took 4 for each swan to be carved.

It's been a while since we opened this thread. I just wanted to drop by and mention I'm not waiting for anything specific, scheduling is just weird with everyone at home.

Last podcast you said there was some "skulky" content left from the spider crafting update. Later on GoldS found the Web Control skill. The skill's stated effects seem pretty narrow compared to some of the other injector skills. Does it have some additional secrets that we haven't found yet?

Is there other spider stuff left to find that's not related to Web Control?

The moodlight glove is back in Zack's this season. It looks pretty well-spaded, but you never know with two coin items. Is there more to find?

Are there unfound depths to the games for the Teso game console, or are they just nice buffs?

Is the freaky spidery stuff that can happen with the mascot adapter “normal” Etheric weirdness, or is Zaibatsu adopting Midgard mysterious signature code?

Hi Kinak,

  • Dare I ask - how has the year been?
  • What's the future of Metroplexity looking like?

Halloween questions:

  • How well did we do this halloween? The number of zombies was ramping up just as I ran out of energy…how much did we miss?
  • What's up with the Third Eye reptile folk? I tried to help them as much as I could but they still attacked me eventually.
  • Was there any way to actually fish?

Non-Halloween questions:

  • Do butcher/kitchen knives do anything cooking related (like a non-fish equivalent to the sashimi knife?)
  • What's the difference between Organware vs Bodyware (and why are visible organs bodyware?)
  • There's a couple references to the Fangs gang symbol, but I am not sure we've actually seen it. What is it?
  • There's now over 34 different encounters on the waterfront, not including gang warfare/vigilante stuff. A lot of them are conditional, but in general it's starting to feel a little overwhelming there. How do you feel about the waterfront?
  • In the wispy hospital pants encounters, there are two mysterious interactions when dying from the Queen. I couldn't find anything special there, is there anything special there?

"When the pain stops, you find yourself somewhere entirely different… somewhere simultaneously clearer and more complicated."

"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."
