Good ideas Mag.

The +7 Perception is visible if you have unlocked it (it replaces the "A Reflection of the Path Before You" text with "+7 Perception" when you succeed).

EDIT: and with Mag's question to Kinak above, that makes more sense, Kinak's response was "Not broken, just a little weird. But I totally understand why you wanted to check. It is possibly a bit too serpenty."

It would make a lot more sense for the "serpentine bulk" message to correlate with the Lo/summer zone in the Fractured Reflection than with Shadowy Presence, but I don't think having unlocked AROTPBY is necessary. I reported getting that message back in March, in my current incarnation. But unless the +7 Perception bonus from the mirror-handled pistol is given invisibly, it doesn't look like I have AROTPBY unlocked yet. I don't specifically remember using the mirror, but I've been in this incarnation since January and I probably played with it at least a little. Or, heck, maybe even having the mirror and having picked the right survivor is enough, even if you haven't installed the mirror at all.

If this theory pans out then none of the Whispers in the Park skills have static TV messages, which is surprising but would at least be consistent.

EDIT: Nope, there's one for Boundless Patience. Maybe you need the tome of binding equipped to get the (now hypothetical) shadowy presence one? Will check.

EDIT AGAIN: No Shadowy Presence result even with tome of binding equipped, assuming serpentine bulk message is from the mirror. Also, The Eye keeps teaching me more instances of Light of the Eye even with all (currently 31) instances I know in my deck. I have both Third Eye Technique and Third Eye Inward. Having Bone Eye active as well doesn't avoid its displeasure. Guess I'll keep trying to see if at some point it's satisfied and maybe gives a new message.

In any case: good eye, Crypto! Nice to see some progress on unraveling a very old mystery.

I checked - yesterday, the skills I had was only giving the "The whispers of static slowly become the buzzing of wings. You breathe deeply of the forest air and can feel strange winged creatures, like butterflies, landing on you lightly then flying off again." Today I unlocked the Autumn AROTPBY and now am getting the "You watch the static diminish and fall like leaves on a breeze behind your reflection." message as well.

So, since the result I just added mentions falling leaves and a reflection, and I not too long ago did the stuff in the autumn reflection, I'm guessing that's related. Looking back at reset history, I think I was also sitting around after having picked Lo when I got that 'serpentine bulk' message earlier in this page's discussion, so maybe that is also related. The XP reward doesn't match up as well as this one does, though.

I do not currently have the antique floor mirror installed, but I do have the A Reflection Of The Path Before You bonuses unlocked.

Starting to collect some data on spider egg/venom drop rates. This is all on the waterfront while etheric (dock guards, ghouls, serpents, third eye gangers, etc):
Cases Samples
No drop Eggs Spider Venom
1 opponent, 1 use 27 3 3
1 opponent, 2 uses 1 0 1
2 opponents, 1 use each 8 3 0
3 opponents, 1 use each 1 1 1

Not a lot of data yet but looks like may be better to use call the swarm multiple times.

Ah! Both dusty suit pants, office dress pants also work. I bet it's the same as office worker duds. I bet tailored pants count for office worker too.

I suspect you need to have Parasitic Vine active to learn this technique. Also, it doesn't seem to interact (in either the Etheric or the non-Etheric version) with the silk whip despite the non-Etheric combat message mentioning whips.

No big surprise here, but nothing special for defeating one of these with salvaging tools and Chitin Hands active.

It looks like avoiding all damage is not by itself enough to learn this. From when I did finally learn my first couple instances, it may be that if the damage you avoid is so trivial that it's only 1 point anyway, then it doesn't work.

Also, it looks like other pants work for triggering the special result from this. A category of fancy pants? Which may also be the stuff that counts toward the office worker outfit.

Confirmed:
bouncer pants
church suit pants
pressed slacks
tailored pants
vintage suit pants

Don't work:
elegantly torn pants
ratty suit pants
sentai pants
