Firstly, congratulations to FBG for the continued success of the Kickstarter campaign! Here's to Skies being a greater success than even Sunless Sea!

Now, my question: with Smuggling confirmed as a gameplay feature, will Menaces:Suspicion be reworked in the major port cities?

From my experience in Sunless Sea, the Suspicion mechanic has two major flaws:
1. there are no easy ways to reduce it besides London in Glory; and consequently
2. it is far too easy to avoid Suspicion penalties such as the Revenue Men and the Ministry of Public Decency. While the accumulated Suspicion does make it a lot more difficult to pass the Veils test option, a player will generally be able to bypass the Revenue Men either with easily-acquired Admiralty Favours or University favours. Similarly in the case of honey smugglers, the profit from selling a mere two vials of red honey are enough to completely negate the bribery penalty imposed by the Ministry of Public Decency.
