The Spider Symposium is a carousel in The Singing Mandrake, released with Mr Chimes' Grand Clearing-Out. It has a grind similar to Brawling with Dockers, and uses 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 for turning them in, although this takes 3 actions in addition to gaining the progress qualities. Any surplus points of Chelicerae Clicked in Applause you may have are exchanged for a secondary reward. The activity focuses on Persuasive.
The Academic Mood serves as a randomizer, similar to The Airs of London.
This carousel is one of only two sources of Lost Research Assistants.
