Book of Hours Assistance Guide

This is a guide for all known assistance in the game. It turns out there are a lot.

Book of Hours Assistance Guide

Yes, though the Rector, the Blacksmith & Mrs and Mr Kille are easily accessible, there exists more assistance you can use. This guide aims to list them all.

To use this guide, use “ctrl + f” for the principle you need, then back trace the assistance who possess the principle.

Boosting Assistance

If you talk with an assistance, you will find their principles can be boosted with specific cards. These include Elements of the Soul, Beverages, Memories, Sustenance, and Tools. Some assistance can be boosted with other consumables. In this case this guide will list these out too.

Unusual Assistance

You get unusual assistance by going to the pub. They have more principle potency then the assistance above. However, which one you get is totally random.

I tried using 1 ereb & 2 pence, and rolled at least 20 times.

The result is 6 different assistance.

Yet there seems to be some bias, as the occurrence of the Nun is lower than that of other assistance.
I am unsure if this is related to the type of element of the soul used. But I am certain the amount of pence used does nothing. As you only pay the assistance only after you “draw” and talk to the assistance.
