From: A Palaeontologist with Hoarding Propensities


The Bone Hoarder is willing to make house calls, and buys almost any type of skeleton that seems at all plausible. They might buy this.

Game Instructions: You may find others who will buy more gullibly or at a better price.

Unlocked with Skeleton in Progress 100


Challenge information

Broad, Shadowy 120

  • 82 - very chancy (41%)
  • 102 - chancy (51%)
  • 122 - modest (61%)
  • 142 - very modest (71%)
  • 162 - low-risk (81%)
  • 182 - straightforward (91%)
  • 200 - straightforward (100%)

The challenge info shown is obtained at level 3 of Skeleton: Self-Evident Implausibility. The base level is (40 x Implausibility), meaning that having zero level of that guarantees a sale.

Success

They find it at least modestly intriguing.

You show your [Skeleton] to the Bone Hoarder, who consents to purchase it. An hour later, their exhausted manservant arrives with a series of crates and a large amount of packing straw.

"Lot of work to assemble, is it? Does it come with a diagram?"


Failure

No sale

Your would-be buyer sends back a curt note that your work is '(manifest text on Implausibility)' and that they are unwilling to offer any sum at all for such nonsense.
