So, you seem to be saying that I should look at the list of previously done 30's before I start bs-ing up ones that need to be done?   :wink:

CM: those will get the 30s freetext, but be part of the others 30 texting

Literally, you can do a list of any 30 related things and qualify for the freetext and linkage.  Thirty is just a common benchmark for completeness we sort of adopted.

And don't forget, we can have more than one of the same 30. Check out the Princesses. so choose something that someone might actually use in a game, and do that.

30 Beings in the Starport Bar
30 of the Lab
30 Cab Drivers
30 in the Kmart
30 in the Airport
30 in the Slums

30 Evil severed body parts

This could an amusing if not macabre grouping. I blame the idea on watching Idle Hands the other day.

I'm 6 away from 30 ships, 5 away from 30 Therianthropes, and 13 away from 30 divine concepts.

Can we change the freetext to "kinda, right around, almost 30"?  :P

Instead of 30 People with a Secret, what about 30 Secrets?

1. NPC is not the gender they appear, they are pretending to be the other for reason X
2. NPC is a doppleganger who likes humans
3. NPC is a closet sorcerer in a magic hating area
etc
etc
etc

Done, but it never hurts to have more!
Do not correct me, I know I am wrong.
