Just got an email touting the upcoming "Dread Holidays" between Nov 1st to Dec 31st 2017. It also stated that FiS would be released during this time to the general public (I think around Halloween, but don't hold me to that). So for those that missed the Kickstarter, have at it!
I Apologize for all grammatical and spelling errors as well as missing words and words that make no sense in the provided context. My IPad hates me.
There are two things that I find notable about the public description. One is the total lack of anything regarding interactivity with the artifact or technology, so now for sure something drastic changed between the initial Kickstarter campaign and the finished product. Two is the warning about the dried lavender as an allergen; I hadn't even thought about that as a possible issue, but I don't remember that kind of warning at all at any point in the Kickstarter, and I hope someone didn't get a bad reaction to that mailing during the Kickstarter run.
I ordered a Surprise Me at the Dread Holidays price and from the mailing structure it looks like they might well be sending Filigree - if I post a bunch of spoiler tagged posts with the contents as it arrives, would someone compare with the KS variant, so we can see what differences there are?
1. Letter from Millennial Dominion Financial introducing the experience 2. Four sheets of handwritten notes, one very smudged 3. Three letters addressed to Henry Griggs 4. A mourning card for Laura Griggs (died in 1876 aged 24) 5. A lock of hair 6. A child's drawing with a poem on it 7. A page from the records of an orphanage mid-1881 (Elizabeth Griggs, age 7) 8. A forfeiture notice concerning Henry Griggs' bankruptcy and the house, Feb 1881 9. A photo (probably Henry and Elizabeth as it's marked "Last Day together") 10. Incomplete architect's blueprints of the house, as designed by Henry
Is there a difference? Considering the number of women and men wearing wigs and toupees these days, I think there's not much of a difference.
As someone who has worn wigs made both of human hair and synthetic hair, I think the difference is quite noticeable. There are very good synthetic hair wigs, and very poor real hair wigs, but as a general rule, real hair wigs are much more convincing than synthetic. They are also much more expensive.
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?

Todd: Did you hear about the dwarfish fortune teller who broke out of jail? Police are on the lookout for a small medium at large.
