Thanks! I appreciate the heads up and of course understand that things don't always go as planned. Looking forward to more Cellar Door stuff. :)

Costume crown, regal crown, origami crown and national crown do not change the messaging here, only consort crown.

Giving the king the draught doesn't seem to change anything with the alchemist, nor does having a princess bloom equipped.

Unchanging Survival doesn't seem to be required to get Cutting Crossfire. I had an army drone model equipped, 9 Ranged Power, and a ranged deck (4x Leaping Dodge, 4x Explosive Shot, 4x Stream of Needles, 3x Rain of Bullets, 1x Rocksplitter Shot), which seems to match the text about exchanging hails of bullets.

No change to "edge of the light?" with candle equipped.

From chat and other wiki sleuthing, I've compiled a list of remaining mysteries from the dusty saga:

  • The Alchemist doesn't have known a No Trade reward item.
    • Maybe the beggar has a reward item too, but I don't think he's ever referred to as a Beggar.
  • "Edge of the light?" is likely worth looking into from the Abandoned Cellar. Weird phrasing.
  • Trying to give the queen dragon's blood ends with "When the pain stops, you find yourself somewhere entirely different… somewhere simultaneously clearer and more complicated." Is there a significance to that? Encounters seem to continue on as normal.
  • Other old mysteries:
    • Gimme Shelter: Abandon it — how to avoid judgement?
    • Sheltered Woman: No successful results found here; and notable one failure message is different: "The world seems clearer, bereft of the cloud of dust lingering at its edges, but you feel as though you've received a message meant for someone else." Why is it different?
      • Maybe test with consort crown equipped?

Further ideas:

  • Some results only come from specific techniques in deck; to test learning all known dusty techniques and then check all encounter results.
  • Possible results from completing the dusty encounters "in order": pants -> watch -> clipboard?

I'm guessing the Peace of Blossoms effect ends up applying to everybody in the fight, though confirming that will take a bit of work.

No change for killing the dragon with a princely sword.

Put some thought into one of the questions on this podcast and decided to post a weekly forecast (perhaps the first of many) on the Metroplexity Facebook/Twitter. I generally plan my week out on Friday, so I'd expect to see it around then.

I'll try to be up front with the chances of things actually happening. But the more forgiving everyone is when I inevitably miss a deadline, the less anxious I'll be sharing them.

With 4 EP, I failed to pluck the flower.

Swapped out my fire etched sword for a black gemstone (now at 12 EP), I successfully plucked it. Both cases had Burning Vision. Is this an Etheric Power check?

It's probably worth trying out wearing this in the encounters where you wind up getting shot by guards. Might be able to protect against some of those.

Edit: Does not protect you from approaching the queen again after poisoning her with dragon blood. Also doesn't protect you when offering the queen the draught and then changing your mind.

You can now give the draught of immortality to the princess if you have it, and it changes the initial text for the encounter, but I haven't figured out what to do next. Talking to her about her father or distracting her (haven't tried with tome of flowers) haven't changed, and neither has talking to the alchemist about his patient.

I can confirm that you need to have it in your deck. I sided with each faction multiple times and only got the options to show up when I put National Call / Orbital Demonstration in my deck.

Ah, that's probably it, thanks. I learned a copy of National Call today and it didn't show up but I didn't have it in my deck. Will try again tomorrow with it in my deck.

Trying to gather blood with the flower of the dragon equipped doesn't seem to do anything other than get you killed because of a lack of a sampling kit. The fact that the flower is a gadget while the encounters we've found that use it don't require it to be equipped seems suspicious, though.

Maybe it's from National Call/Orbital Demonstration? I probably had those in my deck at the time.

How do you get the options to Call a drone/call a soldier? I sided with the king the last two days, and got Time of Collapse and then the national crown (equipped). No option to call a soldier in.

Doesn't seem to be any unlock for wearing this when joining the fool's chatter or changing the subject, regardless of whether or not you successfully beat the fool.

Getting the Unchanging Survival result from the clipboard seemed to stop the dusty encounters from the other two items, even though the quests in there were already started beforehand. Seems to fit the chronology.

I like that idea. There does seem to be an order to the encounters: hospital pants -> watch -> clipboard.

Today, i had both the watch and clipboard equipped, and got only watch encounters until I played up to getting the Time of Collapse skill, then started getting clipboard encounters.
