Oops, I should have checked the Bloody Solution talk page. Sorry about that.

In fact, for Bloody Solution you should not have the amulet equipped. There was a change made back in 2018 regarding that, but I think it never got thoroughly checked out in practice.

Can you get more than one skill if you qualify for more than one at the same time?

I'm questioning the "Must have eye amulet equipped" requirement. After killing the skittish bum, I spent several days in Southside Park with the amulet equipped while Etheric and got nothing. Today, I was adventuring while Etheric and unequipped the eye amulet, after which I got this encounter and Bloody Solution in about 2 turns.

Huh, interesting find. This looks to be a stat check thing (or some other unknown conditional), I'm not getting the lord message for any of the following:


Ghoul: You terrify the ghoul with your flashy appearance.
Dockhand: You terrify the dockhand with your flashy appearance.
Dock Security: You terrify the guard with your flashy appearance.
Rat King: You terrify the rats with your flashy appearance.
Trash Heap: You terrify the trash heap with your flashy appearance.
HH Dancer: You terrify the dancer with your flashy appearance.

So, I've gotten the 'lord over' variant of this against the following opponents:

The following opponents have not gotten it:

With no changes to my equipment between combats, and no effects active.

Hat: heavy containment helmet
Weapon: bony sword
Offhand: (None)
Shirt: posturing pauldrons
Pants: shark hide pants
Gadget: optical bracelet

Salvaged the papers, got a mysql error:

You break down the item for its component parts:
Warning: mysql_fetch_array() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/public/libraries/mysqlshim.php on line 712

You salvaged: [broken image link]"

This has been reported.

Salvaging the papers didn't unlock another instance of "Grab differentiation papers" in the hidden break room, didn't unlock any new text with Andrea, and didn't change the quest log text from "You found some documentation that may help Andrea shed light on the situation."

EDIT: The papers are no longer salvageable.

Managed to learn an instance of this. I'm thinking either evasion at short distance, or maybe specifically Parry at short distance.

So I'd been trying and trying to get this with no luck, then I switched up my deck because I already had the bone cyberlegs installed, so figured I'd see about getting Leg Block. After swapping up my deck, and switching my posturing pistol out for a bony sword, my very next combat:

You slam into the bats and deal 14 melee damage before they can fend off the attack.
The bats batter you with their wings, dealing 2 melee damage.

You set your feet and prepare for a powerful parry.
The bats swoop down, butting into you for 2 melee damage, but you block deftly and deflect all of the damage.

You set up a perfect riposte, piercing the bats with your blade for 18 melee damage.

You've won the battle!

You found: 2 bat wings
You learned a new Technique: Posture

You've earned 1 XP in Reflexes

You've earned 1 XP in Strength

Hat: heavy containment helmet
Weapon: bony sword
Offhand: Fenris tome
Shirt: posturing pauldrons
Pants: shark hide pants
Gadget: optical bracelet

Effects: Burning Vision, Bone Spikes. Both of which I'd had running for quite a while already.

Deck: Ghoul Bite, Kidney Punch, Brutality, Reflexive Blade, Parry, Punch, Swordplay

I got two copies of this in fairly quick succession once I switched to a melee/evasion deck (I had bone plated cyberlegs on for several days before this using mostly ranged/etheric (high chain number) techniques). I was actually trying to find something special with the bony sword but I'll take this find. I'd guess maybe using evasion at short distance can teach you it?

Hat: gas mask
Weapon: bony sword
Offhand: tome of binding
Shirt: bloodied coat
Pants: achromatic slacks

I know that I had spider limbs installed, and I *think* I had either bone plated cyber arms or cyber legs or both.

Incidentally, nothing found so far from bone plated cyber arms/legs installed.

Not been able to learn this so far, with similar equipment, and started adding in some of the effects. What cyberware had you recently installed to still have Cyber Sickness active?

Got this after a single round fight with a Spider Patron. I had the pauldrons equipped for about a day's worth of energy before I got the technique. Not sure what changed.

You fire with a steady hand, shooting the patron for 9 ranged damage.
The patron bobs and jerks, but the actions seem unlikely to avoid anything.

You call for aid from above. A winged shape follows your shot, its gaze burning into the patron for 21 etheric damage.
The patron continues her unnatural movement to stab you for 23 stealth damage.

You've won the battle!

The other patrons look on in horror as you harvest cybernetic components from your defeated foe.

You found: fixed eyes

You gained 66 credits!

I got this with a reflexive cyberblade installed, but after a fair bit of fighting. The last round of combat when I got it:

You punch the ganger, throwing the whole weight of your body behind it and dealing 18 melee damage.
The ganger fires a short burst into you, dealing 2 ranged damage.

You hammer the ganger unrelentingly, dealing 23 melee damage.

You latch onto the ganger and tear a chunk out of him with your teeth, dealing 16 melee damage.

You slip behind the ganger and extend a cyberblade into his back for 27 stealth damage.

You've won the battle!

You gained 12 credits!

You found: heavy pistol

You found: 5 tablets of Eclipse

You found: brass knuckles
You learned a new Technique: Cyberblade

You learned a new Technique: Reflexive Blade

You've earned 4 XP in Strength

From the description, it may have to do with starting a chain with some sort of punch and then ending with Backstab?

Equipment:
Hat: guard helm
Weapon: silk whip
Offhand: spider nest
Shirt: silk vest
Pants: silk pants
Gadget: Myers sampling kit

Only effect was Chitin Hands, and only cyberware was the reflexive cyberblade.

Edit: I've gotten 3 copies now, and it's not super clear what's triggering it. Maybe just possible from any stealth following a punch? The original trigger might not be from that round of combat I logged, since there was the first ganger I killed, and I didn't save that round.

Another edit: Looks like the 'too close' variant is just against melee, and doesn't trigger versus stealth.

No special messaging for watching an episode of Matsuo the Demon Slayer featuring the Queen of Death with this equipped.

by CryptodynamicCryptodynamic, 23 May 2020 21:21

Another skill in that ID range is almost certainly from the blotted document.

by MagnificoMagnifico, 22 May 2020 02:48

If you salvage these, can you get more? (wiki says they are salvageable but untried)

(Idle speculation - by ID number, there are 3-4 more skills between the April 2019 Spider Crafting Update and the March 2020 Cellular Questions update. Minus one probably from the cellular diff papers. Could there be something special for destroying the evidence? Are there other weird ways we could get skills?)
