Hints and Tricks

Get 9 extra fast regens

Try to end up with 0 Actions on your candle and 1 left for the day. Allow your candle to regen to 10. These actions will regen at the normal rate. Once you have ten, use them, then your regen rate will drop to half hour. The half hour regens are triggered not by regenerating your last action but by using an action with 1 regen left. Once you've used those ten, Echo to Twitter to get another ten, then spend any fate points you can to get more regens. Just before your regens return to normal rate, use the ten that accrued while you were asleep. Then you'll be ready to take advantage of the faster regen rate as soon as it appears.

Recognise the two levels of Chancy Storylets

When a Storylet first drops from High Risk to Chancy, you'll still fail more than you succeed. Get one more level of the required attribute. The difficulty will still be Chancy, but now you'll succeed much more than you fail. Use this to climb the ladder and earn maximum payments for storylets.

Nightmares

Certain cards will always increase your nightmares, certain cards will always reduce them. More often than not, you'll get fate when you increase your nightmares with Red-bordered cards. To reduce your nightmares, Drink laudanum. It'll likely wound you, so be sure to have a Hearty Meal. You can also decrease nightmares by using Sudden Insight and relieving your fears to a friend, drinking wine at the refreshment booth of the carnival, or at level 18 Dangerous will allow you to do Guard Duty at the Observatory which occasionally gives a decrease in nightmares along with the usual reward.

Connections

Animal Face cards allow you to trade connections for skill ups. Generally this isn't worth it, as the skills can be advanced elsewhere, and advancing connections, at least until you've reached rank 3 and can using the Carnival, are difficult.

Theories

The First City

The Second City

  • I think the second city is Babylon, based on the relics (gypsum heads and indecpiherable clay tables). However, one of the 'things' is that 'The first city was young when Babylon fell'... one reading of this is that the First City was a short experiment, followed up by the second (Babylon)... another reading is that the first city was just founded shortly before Babylon fell (which would invalidate the thoery).

The Third City

  • I think the Third City is Zadar. There is a hint which talks about it having "five wells" and nicer weather. Zadar is on the Adriatic coast and has a "five wells" square. It is also in a region where cinnabar would've been available, and I am led to believe Third City relics are cinnabar beads. --Dasquian 12:32, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

The Fourth City

  • The Fourth City seems very likely to be Karakorum. The relics are carved-bone horse heads in blue glaze, and the Mongols were famous horse-users. There is also a reference in a hint to it having a silver tree fountain, which matches up very nicely to the one in Karakorum (credit to Siilaan). --Dasquian 12:35, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
