Still no luck, alas. I also went and gave a hound to Dr. Johnson, just in case that had anything to do with it. Also, realized that I also have 5 instances of Hunting Command learned, and added those into my active deck as well.

Oh, I had a wolfskin belt equipped at the time too, in case howling at it did anything. Maybe that affected it? Could be bugged.

I think Mag is right here, you need to have eaten one this run, and then further mushrooms get a bonus first use per day. Elsewhere was the theory that you need to have harvested at least one this run, but I don't think that's actually needed (thought that's complete conjecture on my part).

I learned an instance of Call the Firebird, but I'm still not getting the tome message. Was hoping it had to do with knowing a certain number of different summoning techniques, but apparently not.

My current deck has Burrowing Horror x 4, Release the Hounds x 4 (I have 43 total instances), Unleash Spider x 3, Call the Firebird, and Aid From Above x 5. I do also know several instances of Pyrophobia, but don't have it in my active deck, and it sounds like GoldS didn't, either.

Was the previous time where you failed to get the message the first time you'd eaten twin mushrooms this incarnation? It'd make sense that you can't forget how delicious they are if you've never eaten them before.

First use today (I was at 40/40 hunger) - no special message.

You eat the twin mushroom, hoping it isn't poisonous. Wow, even if it is poisonous, probably worth it. This stuff is delicious!

Mmmmmmm. Reminds you of wandering through sunless caverns.

You've regained 5 energy!

You've gained 5 duration of Fae Blessing.

EDIT: But then the following day, ate one for 10 energy with "Wow, you almost forgot how delicious these are.". Then ate a second one for 7 energy without the additional message.

Fae sight "forgot how delicious" data points: 10, 12, 11, 10, 11, 12, 12 (also 11 from previous in this thread)

With 29 Release the Hounds and 4 Unleash Spiders, tome equipped and OJ sample, I am still not getting the extra message from GoldS:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

The mysterious characters seem to respond to the sounds, but basically at random. You feel there must be some deeper meaning, but cannot find it.

I had 4 Release the Hounds and 1 Unleash Spider, though I do have 28 instances of Release the Hounds available.

I also have Aid from Above (4), Burrowing Horror (1), Call the Firebird (2), and Pyrophobia (77), but they weren't in my deck at the time.

by GoldSGoldS, 06 Nov 2019 03:11

My last time I had a tome of binding equipped, with 5 copies of Release the Hounds and 3 of Unleash Spider in my deck, which are all that I know. Maybe there's some minimum level of those that's needed?

Used this with a tome of binding equipped, with Unleash Spider and Release the Hounds in my deck, after drinking an orange juice sample the previous day. I also had Secrets of the Cube and was Etheric:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

You recognize the sounds as similar to the chants explained in the tome of binding.

You recognize the characters from that strange puzzle and watch as they respond to the sounds, dancing with inhuman patterns. There must be some underlying meaning to the pattern, but it eludes you.

Using it subsequent times produced the default message, with and without the tome of binding equipped.

With an OJ charge I got this result:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

You recognize the characters from that strange puzzle and watch as they respond to the sounds, dancing with inhuman patterns. There must be some underlying meaning to the pattern, but it eludes you.

I didn't have the puzzle equipped or any puzzle related effects, just:

Emerald Gift (8)
Pep in your Step (9)
Fantastic Fiction (19)
Bone Spikes (86)
Burning Vision (86)
Halloween Spirit (238)

I do have Secrets of the Cube and it looks like Al does not, which could be the difference there.

Edit:

Tried doing this again, with Focused Perception and Studious Nature, but no change.

With Orange Juice sample:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

The mysterious characters seem to respond to the sounds, but basically at random. You feel there must be some deeper meaning, but cannot find it.

I had Tooth Dream (38), Fae Sight (59), Halloween Spirit (186), Primeval Terror (361)

EDIT: Nothing else special with tome of binding equipped too. Nothing special using it on the 4th floor where the hound barrier seems weak.

No luck with that, either. I think the crafting gets us past the biometrics, so I guess at this point it's a matter of knowing how to interact with it. We probably have to tap the runes in a certain pattern or something like that, which probably either means learning something, or getting etheric help in interpreting.

Crystal face? Maybe it'd get past the biometrics. I still haven't unlocked my datareader; can check if you want me to.

The fact that this can't be used while equipped is a little suspicious, so offhand items seem worth trying. No luck with the following equipped:
