The Spider Syposium is a carousel in Veilgarden.png The Singing Mandrake, released with Mr Chimes' Grand Clearing-Out. It has a grind similar to Brawling with Dockers, and uses Spidertree.png Chelicerae Clicked in Applause as a progress quality. Each point of these have an assumed value of 0.1 Echoes, as well as a bonus of 1.5 Icon-echo.png for turning them in, although this takes 3 actions in addition to gaining the progress qualities. Any surplus points of Spidertree.png Chelicerae Clicked in Applause you may have are exchanged for a secondary reward. The activity focuses on Fox.png Persuasive.

Mortarboard.png The Academic Mood serves as a randomizer, similar to Clouds.png The Airs of London.
