It also gives you the quality 'unaccountably peckish' which opens up a storylet to get rid of said quality by eating(or consuming things to satisfy other cravings, like prisoner's honey). Attempting to talk to it just gets you clawed, increasing both Wounds and Nightmares. It gives you a -5 debuff to Persuasive as well, and since it sits in your inventory, not your pets slot, I'm assuming this is persistent. There is also the option to pass it off to someone else, although I'm hesitant to do that, just in case there is some hidden benefit to it.

Well, if you're looking to pass anything on to anyone, I'm trying to attend the marvellous, so I'm looking for first city coins!
Which you can give away in sets of 30!

I'm experimenting! Holding on to it doesn't get you any direct benefit, but I want to try passing it back and forth to increase peckishness, which figures into storylets pertaining to Mr. Eaten. So if you could send it back to me, I would be greatly appreciative.

It is done.
It only cost me 3 persuasive, by the way.

Yeah, it's 3. And apparently it's not an active debuff.

Also, I don't think passing the cat back and forth will raise your peckishness if it's already above 1, because that's where mine has stayed even after handing it off and getting it back. Oh well!

Apparently there are events that raise your peckishness.

I am now officially a part of The Great Game! I chose to align myself with Hell, since I'm often seen in the company of various attractive devils and devilesses, which ironically leads to me visiting church far more often to clear up the Scandal that comes as a natural side effect of being intimate with the Infernals.

I may have engaged in some violent shenanigans with a stranger and ended up with one fewer Knife & Candle victory tokens than I need to spend on a reward. This leaves my cache of tokens open to bloody pilferage. I'm hoping to gain one more token before the august Mr. so-and-so seizes his once-owned property from me, along with my own, personal pittance.

Are any fine brontogents involved with the Knife & Candle Moon Leagues? I would appreciate the pleasure of a match. Not a broken one though--quite the opposite, really. :suave:

Ok this seems fun. Someone remind me to start.
What are you doing today?

Haha that's okay! I'm sure another one will come around.
That was some good cat-unboxing. I don't know how many I had to bumble my way through, but it was more than one! Expect great degrees of agony if you continue down this path. Apparently,[spoiler] crafting a candle out of one's own body fat[/spoiler] costs 20 Dangerous and Persuasive and a hefty helping of Wounds and Nightmares.

There, now you have another chance! Good thing, too, because the card that requires 3 levels in the quality keeps coming up in my Opportunities.

I don't know!

I just joined Knife and Candle, though. I haven't gotten a chance to choose a form, yet.

Dammit Ted. You sent me a pissed off sorrow spider.

Anyway, I'm thinking of going to the fourth city and farming for echoes.
