Per Mag's suggestion, I have tried each of the artistry options (except amulet, which I do not have), with the following outfit:

Equipped Items
Hat: ghoulish crown
Weapon: unending chain
Offhand: odd sketchbook
Shirt: painted dress
Pants: zombie pants
Gadget: black rose

Nothing notable happened.

Perhaps it's the fact that borkman seems to have the anniversary pocket mirror equipped?

I'm getting the "its sight is deflected" message vs borkman, and only vs him, in about 3 days of using Aid from Above on everyone I can. Perhaps high will, ED, or vs. tome of binding? I'll collect more data.

The underwater form seems to be the same regardless of opponent reflexes. With 4 Evasion Power, I got the same form vs. 3x Writhing Mass (0 Reflexes) and a Ruins Octopus (15 Reflexes).

I can only find two underwater forms, regardless of diving ability or Evasion Power relative to opponent Reflexes. "Launch carefully" seems to trigger vs. demons with the replica sword equipped, and "move carefully" otherwise.

I fought a few dozen flying eyes today, and learend 7 instancef of the tech. When I had entrapping gaze I learnt the tech. when I didn't have the effect, I didn't learn the tech. That's points at condition confirmed.

I asked Kinak about the "serpentine bulk" message, specifically if he had maybe typed in the wrong skill ID or something and it's actually supposed to go with a different skill. His reply:

Not broken, just a little weird. But I totally understand why you wanted to check. It is possibly a bit too serpenty.

So I guess the message's relationship to the associated skill is pretty oblique, like the one for Secrets of the Cube.

I think this message is coming from Shadowy Presence, but for the record here's my complete skill list:

Art Appreciation
Common Dreams
Demon Slayer
Efficient Hacking
Emerald Meditation
Experienced Observer
Experimental Chemistry
Expert Salvager
Eye for Bugs
Fae Eyes
Fire Trained
Harvest Dreams
Long Lost Nostalgia
Lotus Map
Patchwork Dreams
Quantum Mechanics
Secrets of the Cube
Shadowy Presence
Simple Coding
Sushi Chef
Third Eye Inward
Third Eye Technique
Time of War
Trauma Tech
Urban Lor

On the plus side, running away from 5 different nightmares-in-a-jar in a single day gave me a skill! On the disappointing side, that skill was Slave to Nightmares.

Having seen the serpent pattern from the protein database does not let you know a serpent's weaknesses for purposes of this technique.

Can't tell if Kinak's hint means there are no more results to get with Etheric and all the other ones can only be gotten sober or if he means we've run down one specific Etheric chain but there are other ones. Just tried this with no result.

I was thinking that if the serpent pattern has something to do with the mysterious drone signature it might generated a result here. Guess I could try while sober, but it seems like an Etheric sort of thing.

If the SDnano still gives math routines it probably needs updating; more likely the wiki needs updating here.

This setup failed to upgrade the coat:

I have also seen the mysterious drone signature. I can't remember if I upgraded the coat from its base form reset or if it was already in defensive form.

Finally made it! Since my last attempt, I have seen the mysterious drone signature and gotten Lotus Map, both of which may have been relevant. I had 23 instances of Swirling Circuitry in my deck and, unlike last time, had used the technique extensively in combat. In the superstition category, I was sporting the Student of Roy avatar.

I had the same equipment, cyberware, and programs as my last attempt. I based my effects off of what worked for Penguinpyro and xKiv, but for the record here's the list:

I never did expose the wireframe or make the Pale Swordsman bow in this incarnation. On a previous attempt (in this incarnation) I did get the view result where I saw the swordsman was programmed to hijack neural links.

EDIT: I did not have an OJ charge active. I definitely did not have one at the start of the day so I drank an OJ, but it wouldn't have kicked in in time for this hack.

Missing form here if you are not etheric and don't have xylophone equipped.

by bigalphillipsbigalphillips, 14 Mar 2019 20:35

Confirm. Popping a pep pill put a pretty +2CF on my profile.

No apparent effect for hacking in the University Net (lots of viewing Shared Files and Post Archives) for 100 energy with Steady Hand and Etheric active.

Defeating either version of the Rag Man with Channeling Matsuo active, a replica sword equipped, and using Demonslaying Blade in combat didn't give anything special.

There are various podcast hints about the the rag mans's cape interacts with something that hadn't been found yet. I would very strongly bet that it has something to do with Demonslaying Blade and/or Demon Slayer skill. To the investigatemobile!

Does the Lonesome Quad look different while the protest is going on?

I had the +1 incognito pretty consistently for a few days and then lost it and couldn't get it back. But, looking at my bonuses now I have +1 Code Finesse. (And, yes, I did remember this time that I'm getting +1 from OmniEyes.) The likely culprit is Sparkling Blood. It makes a certain amount of sense that if a depressant gives one effect, a stimulant would cancel it out and give a different one. I had used stimulant dust yesterday too, which might have been what cancelled out the incognito bonus even though I was also drunk. So maybe there's a lockout period when one type of effect wears off or you use an incompatible drug before you can get the other effect?

EDIT: OK, I think I'm getting somewhere. Sparkling Blood wasn't doing it, The Jitters was. Had the extra CF when it was active. It went away when the effect wore off. Came back when I got it again. Pep in Your Step also seems to work.

When all the stimulant effects wore off, drinking a Cellar Door stout gave me a bonus incognito again. No lockout period.
