Blurb Herder - Read every bit about every book in the game, from all shelves and NPCs. The achievement will trigger when trapped in the container, after the cutscene where you're experimented on, and you read the front cover, middle, and back cover of the book left for you.

Act 5

There are no hidden achievements in Act 5 (that I have found)

Missing, to be Found

Affirming Flame - "Life is harsh, but you didn't let that stop you from being compassionate when it mattered"

Smell-o-Vision - Sniff everything that can be sniffed. I thought I did this in my playthrough, but must have missed 1. If anyone has a full list of sniffable items, that would be great!

True Connection - "You felt a true connection to Renee, and acted on it."

Cruel to be Kind - "Sometimes folks need tough love. Or in your case, all the time" - Be mean / blunt to everyone throughout the whole game?

Me Time - "You chose to spend your time under the Bridge in quiet reflection" - During Act 4, don't talk to people and just interact with nature?

also, if anyone has a list of all Book locations for Blurb Herder, I can update that to include all locations. i recall at least the book store in Gastown, the bookshelves in the Minister's house, and the book in the container.

Hope everyone enjoys the guide, and thank you to anyone who helps contribute. You will be properly credited. -Tass
