Crypto already tried this but this seems really significant like it's hiding something:

She looks thoughtful. "No, I should think not. You may have made my fool look like his title, but knowledge of a single subject does not make you a judge of character."

May be just a hint that you need the consort crown equipped but I did try beating him at all three topics and still no change in text.

The topics that the Fool chooses seems to be at random, I got the following today (took a really long time to get spells):

flowers (2 tries)
flowers (2 tries)
stars (first try)
flowers (2 tries)
stars (2 tries)
flowers (2 tries)
stars (first try)
stars (2 tries)
stars (2 tries)
stars (first try)
spells (2 tries)

I had the Lesson of Spells/Flowers/Stars in my deck and the fool's cap on the whole time. No change in text with the national crown equipped either.

While updating for the latest avatar, I looked back at some of the recent ID gaps in between Patron avatars. Looks like we've got something that came between the March 2019 and April 2019 avatars, and between the June 2019 and July 2019 avatars.

Looking at releases around those times, those would seem to line up with the release of extra spider crafting content, and the release of the expanded Zaibatsu merchandise options. There's a bunch of spidery equipment and effects that came out, and the sentai equipment from the Zaibatsu store still seems like a likely contender, though I know it's been checked at least a bit. There might be some specific condition in addition to wearing it.

You can get multiple ancient love potions per day, once you've learned Lesson of Stars at least once today.

Nothing special for showing the Princess his potion multiple times in a day. Nothing special for distracting or just chatting with the Princess after showing her the potion (even though she threatened to kill you).

That seems likely, since it looks like all the other techniques have a variant for having the relevant cyberware installed.

The Stitched Creation's version of this is somewhat different: "<Opponent>'s bones grind and change before lashing out at you for x damage." - may be another form available for this technique? Maybe with the cyberware installed?

Yeah, I got the "skeletal shapes" message when fighting multiple robed corpses.

Nothing special for daily tries at:

  • Prince storyline / side with CEO / "Just Chat" with princely sword equipped.
  • Alchemist storyline / side with CEO / "Leave her there" with philosopher's stone equipped.
  • Fool storyline / side with CEO / "Treat her" with fool's cap and Myers sampler.
  • Fool storyline (also gave King a potion of immortality and Princess a love potion) / side with King / "Just Chat" with fool's cap and flower of the dragon equipped.
  • Princess (potion from Sorceress) / side with King / "Just chat" with fool's cap, charmed shirt, army drone model
  • Queen / Peace / Leave her
  • Sorceress / Peace / Treat her (with charmed shirt, etc)

Does the "A skeletal shape" vs. "Skeletal shapes" message depend if you have 2 or more skeletons to fight?

(Also - does the "The corpse stares at you as though waiting for the world to end." attack from the skeleton corpse do anything? Can we learn it maybe?)

in discussion Hidden / Per page discussions » Swarming Code

I'm getting a different message from the Swarming Code tool than was on the wiki; and only getting +1 C or V instead of the +2.

No change on various systems. No change following Wideband tools. No change with 4, 8 or 12 Code Finesse. Mystery.

Maybe the drone signature would help?

Drone Overwrite works on the Warehouse Computer system (Secured Entrance/Inventory Database/Midgard Hound) and on the MBR Lab.

Does not work on Novos Test Server.

Probably all Midgard Systems it works on? Impossible to test the Slags Lab.

Is there another condition to this? I'm not getting it at all.

EDIT: And of course, now I got it very next turn. I didn't get it in 45 energy before that though. (I did recently un-equip my containment suit bottom, if ED makes a difference.)

I succeeded with 5 contacts (an ex-Fang in the sewers, a Dock security guard, a dockhand, a raver at the Happy Hour, and a college student). I didn't record it but I am 90% sure that I gave away crates to the ex-Fang, dock security, dockhand; and exchanged for reward the raver and the college student.

Perhaps if you exchange at least 3/5 people for free you succeed but if you sell to people you need more? I don't think I've ever tried making everyone pay.

(Picking up this puzzle again six years later - more data could also be collected as to when Dr T starts giving extras in her shipments as well)

No "higher ground" for using Fae Leap with angelic wings:

You take flight for a moment.
The lake serpent leaps into you for 1 melee damage, but your unexpected flight slips all of the damage.

You flick an icy feather towards the lake serpent like a throwing knife for 2 stealth damage.

No change with various knifes or broken bottles equipped.
No change following Leaping Dodge.
No change with crumpled raven feather in offhand.
No change to the "You flick a cold knife" message with the blade of the snows equipped.
No change unopposed, opener, closer.

Heh, just noticed that the 'nostalgic' sweater from 2015 uses the same image as the first sweater (2008). Nice touch there and kudos to whoever put all the sweater images on the Christmas rewards page.
