I do have to say I'm disappointed by the lack of options to splash her during the boat trip (quite accidentally, of course). Petty, I know, but would have been satisfying nevertheless.

Hey, if you wanted to you could headcanon the one time she *does* get splashed as a secretly deliberate maneuvure on your part.

Choosing Crooked Cross as your profession will get you a weapon with +12 Persuasive, +12 Shadowy and +1 Dreaded. There may well be other occupations that give you something similar, I don't know, I've never looked into it.


Edit: Please ignore me, I only just looked at your profile and see you already have a +12 Persuasive weapon. Sorry about that.

There is a new Dangerous Transportation that I believe is also the new BiS non-Fate Transportation for BDR and Dangerous (see my profile smile )

This should be the complete conversion table:

Strange Catch 1 - Picking... 4
Strange Catch 2 - Picking... 6-8
Strange Catch 3 - Picking... 8-12
Strange Catch 4 - Picking... 10-16
Strange Catch 5 - Picking... 12-20
Strange Catch 6 - Picking... 14-24
Strange Catch 7 - Picking... 16-28
Strange Catch 8 - Picking... 18-32
Strange Catch 9 - Picking... 20-36
Strange Catch 10 - Picking... 22-40
Strange Catch 11 - Picking... 24-44
etc.

Which brings up the question, what's the highest value Strange Catch anyone got? Just to check there's nothing hidden at Picking 50 or above... :P

Direful Reflections are nice if you're in need of them, but trading Attar for Favours has better monetary value. Both items are valued 12.5 E, but DR costs 7 Attar while FiHP only costs 3 Attar each.

Nice items! A new best-in-slot shadowy hat and dangerous transport. Excellent.

For each faction, there's a 10-renown item that's available on the card for 3 favors, a 25-renown item that's available for 5 favors somewhere in London, and a 40-renown item that's available for 7 favors somewhere outside London. Full list at https://fallenlondon.fandom.com/wiki/Renown_Items_(Guide) if you want it, but the Renown: Society item is in Port Carnelian, and the renown: Church item is on Corpsecage island.


Once you are a Legendary Charisma and have 200 persuasive, on the "An Unsigned Message" card there is an option to use all your notability to set your persuasive to 200 + your notability. (NOTE - this does not raise your stat cap, just your actual stat value, so if it goes down you can't just do persuasive challenges to get it back up.)

I would recommend starting on the renown collection, since renown can only be gained through favors which can only be gained from cards, so there's no way to speed it up. But once you've made progress you keep it forever! Notability, on the other hand, is transient. It is difficult to raise it until you've got all the various bizarre/dreaded/respectable items and tattoos, and raising it is not permanent, since it gets used up by various things. So I would focus on getting the renown items and on items that boost your BDR and leave the notability stuff for once you've gotten all the BDR items you intend to.

I wish. I tried it just now with Catch 9 and no dice. See other messages for the way the RNG governs what you can get through the Cove.

Thank you all for the info! A lot of this is new to me, so I have some follow up questions:

1. Is getting the transport and home comfort options from each faction something that crops up on their card once I have 40 Renown?
2. How does one overcap? Sounds like it's through the Amaneunsis somehow?

I'm fine with a long grind! I'm working towards the most fanciest of weddings at the moment, which is likely going to take months, I just like knowing how to do something and having a plan.

You probably wanna consider overcapping your Persuasive through the notability grind and 'An Unsigned Message', yeah. Good luck.

Well, the Renown items get you there. But, 40 Renown is quite the grind in itself (probably a few months), and unfortunately there's really no half-measures available for those two slots.

You can squeeze an extra 2 points by buying a fancier suit from the Bazaar. Note that the Mood is a Hat, it will negate the value of a Tiara.

You mentioned you are a Legendary Charisma, but it looks like you haven't factored Overcapping into your stats yet. You can get up to 15 more points, depending on how much Notability you are willing to spend. That's... also a grind, but possibly shorter than Renown. On the other hand, Renown and its rewards are more permanent.

    Currently my Renown is best with Church, Criminals, and Docks, at 5 for each.

    I recently got an email from a user that says "[user] has invited you to accept their calling card." There is a link in the email to "find out more," but the link cannot be clicked and it will not copy-paste into my URL search properly. Any tips for this?

    P.S. If you are the user that sent it to me, I got it smile

    Can you post either your current kit or a link to your profile? That would make it easier to see where there's opportunity for improvement.

    What is your Renown like right now with various factions? Several factions offer best-in-slot equipment as a reward for achieving Renown 40. Those are all substantial grinds... but well worth it. Especially 8 points each in the Transport and Home Comfort slots, those are effectively irreplaceable.
