Tested to double check - does same 4 base defense with or without the Vigilante's mask on.

Looks like the petting result that has the mouse trying to bite you counts as an evil action, at least as far as Chains of Regret is concerned.

I noted Diggsworth using a new message with Microrocket. I'm getting the same thing. EDIT: Bonus for rangefinders equipped!

For a sec I thought I was seeing the short distance version vs Punch but must have mis-logged something, can't replicate now.

No obvious change in message for rangefinder equipped for Juryrigged Rocket or Steel rocket.

So, I tried using this dressed as a doctor, bum, and in a containment suit, to no avail.

I then used it with the same outfit I had on last time, sans the downtown visitor ID, and no result. Putting the ID back on, though, I got the skill.

I got this after killing the janitors at the vine encounter 3 times, as well as killing another 5 janitors and 3 ghouls elsewhere.

Looks like unlocking this might take killing another 5? or so people after getting the Concealing Vines encounter.

Given the text "The edges of your wounds ", the Low-HP Techniques trigger of <50% HP would make a lot of sense here.

On further review, it looks like there may actually be something other than just having killed the White Worm in order to get this encounter. I thought that last time I was at full HP, but maybe I wasn't. Given the text of the encounter, being at less than full HP might be involved. I've been adventuring for a while now, making sure to keep my HP topped off, and still not hit this encounter. I've been trying a few other things, like Channeling Matsuo, wearing the worm mandible/worm scale shirt/worm scale pants, but no signs of an alternate result so far. The fact that you can apparently avoid getting this encounter makes me suspicious that there's another skill for hitting some other trigger, though.

I spent 100 energy yesterday stealing mail and didn't get any dry ice. Today was more productive. I got 26 encounters in 100 energy, 66 items.

call center ID 5
caramel bar 8
coffee crystals 1
cybernetic interface 6
defective drone parts 5
dry ice 7
Eurasian report 6
interoffice memo 6
janitorial ID 5
Midgard cap 5
targeting circuit 7
thick cabling 5

.66 items per energy, 12 possible drops so should be averaging about one dry ice every 18 energy.

Completely forgot about this with all the holiday stuff going on, but taking a look now and I'm encountering the same behavior. No signs of an etheric encounter, but I do get the sober hat retrieval encounter that has the students making the big pile of snow.

Spent most of my (full) HBE today on the quad and didn't get the encounter even once. Got my hat back almost immediately after sobering up, so there might be a condition? The only thing I can think of is that I didn't kill and snowmen this year …

So, I got the Holiday Headhunter title this year, when I have not in the past despite beating the manyheaded snowman. I think the difference this year might be one of two things. I had one fight in which I managed to get 5 floating heads, and I had another couple fights in which I managed to kill the snowman without knocking off any of its heads. I'm not sure on the former, but I know I didn't do the latter on previous years.

Got holiday stuff going on so I'm just barely having time to burn through my remaining energy and can't get all the details wiki'd up now, but I (eventually) beat the Queen of Ice with the orb of ice equipped, and this time the drop I got from her was the scepter of ice.

Running away with Channeling Matsuo active and a replica sword equipped (Because "White Worm", get it) didn't do anything special.

Since this encounter ended up replacing some older, annual versions of the encounter, pulling in some notes about things that have been tried for unlocking snow snakes:

Also, I believe Al has tried Wide Open and rage effects.

And some more recent things:

Considered using Awaken Students against snowmen, but turns out you can't learn it while the snowman competition is up at the dorms.

You eat the cookie. It tastes like ginger-scented cardboard, but you stick it out.

You've regained 6 energy!

You've earned 6 XP in Will
