Will the wedding option work when wedding NPCs?
Not for the Artist's Model and Jewel Thief, at least. I'm pretty sure it's only for weddings between players.

Not in the free content. You can buy more companions at the bazaar which unlock more cards which give urchins favors, but it's all card-based.

In the fate-locked world, if you do the Empress' Shadow story, you end up with a repeatable somewhere-around-13-action grind that gives a 50% chance of an urchin favor and refreshes your cards, so it'll speed up urchin renown collection by a lot.

Well I guess I'll just keep drawing cards then.

You take the fate path(as a guest) of the Masters revel cards. It gives two new cards. At the second card you can steal something(some stealth challenge) but you fail. You get sent automatically to NewGate prison even if your suspicion is below 8. What you also loose among the connections?
From the card Mr Wines is hosting another revel

Concerning urchins: buy the Winsome orphan companion. It also gives a favor at the price of two Memories of Distant Shores. Really, this and criminals was the easiest grind.

Is there any content in FL relating to the New Sequence, or is the Dawn Machine only really present in SSea?

Where've you been finding easy Criminals favors? I've been hanging on to "a fair sized job for the right cracksman" for a few days and haven't gotten anything except from the Criminals connection card. Does it get easier once the Gang of Hoodlums is acquired?

The main New Sequence story I can think of is Exceptional: The Last Dog Society. I thought it was great, but if I remember correctly it's not high on most lists of stories to buy.

Edit: Also, is New Sequence a play on main sequence stars? A Judgment's new, mechanical path from birth to death? I should really pause and think for five minutes every time I see a proper name in this universe.

Yes. One free favour every time you pull the Gang card.

Should I get rid of the Connected: Devil and Intimate of Devils entirely? According to my calculations, Devils infect 15% of cards, which is an outrage.

What stories or qualities that give useless cards I should avoid like a plague?

How can I use the Set of Correspondence Stones?

What unique options advanced types of POSI grant?

Are there full blown stories missable due to too high stats?

Should I actually end Cheesemonger storyline? I found it a useful source of Favors: Docks.

Is there any fate locked content that uses Elemental Secrets or other items of such tier?

1. If you're worried about trimming your deck, it's best to carry the devil storyline all the way to the end and sell your soul. It's the only way they go away completely.
2. Someone else would be better equipped to answer this, but I do know to avoid getting in a relationship with the struggling artist's model.
3. You can't; they do nothing.
4. Persuasive specialization has an option on the Amanuensis card, not sure about the others. Each lets you boost that stat above 200, though.
5. Not full stories, as far as I know.
6. Being of the veteran of the great game is necessary for later content and you become one by finishing the cheesemonger story, so I'd advise doing it eventually.
7. I don't think so. As far as I recall, the only use is in SMEN.

There's such content in the "Our Lady of Pyres" Exceptional Story.

Criminals are by far the easiest Favours to gain, since there are so many cards which provide them:

Standard frequency:

  • The Criminals card (obviously)
  • The Mayor's card
  • A Visit (Visit your acquaintance, the Repentant Forger)
  • The Marsh-Wolf card (if you have it as your connected pet)
  • The Gang of Hoodlums card
  • Smoky Flophouse card (if you have this lodgings, and are an annoyance to Jack-of-Smiles)
Infrequent:
  • The Alluring Accomplice card (if you have her as a companion)
  • The Ruthless Henchman card (if you have him as a companion)
Very Infrequent:
  • A drink with the Cheery Man (if you've favoured him)
  • Master Jewel thief card (if you have him as a spouse)
  • A merry sort of crime (when Renown: Criminals is 20).
And in addition to cards, Enforcers receive 1 x Favours: Criminals every week.

The most important thing to avoid is a relationship with the Struggling Artist himself.
The artist's model isn't so bad, especially since you can eventually get rid of her useless card when you're POSI.

You can miss out on the story of the curate and his sister if you progress through the Persuasive tracker too quickly.

Never visit the palace wine cellars. (http://fallenlondon.wikia.com/wiki/The_wine_cellars_of_the_Palace)
Side with the Cheery Man, not the Last Constable. (might be unimportant when they convert constables to favours)
Don't kill the Big Rat. (this one at least can be fixed with fate, however)
Stay away from Struggling Artists.
Don't get any of the POSI items except the transports and gang unless you REALLY want the stats. (the transports give good EPA but affect quirks)
Never buy lodgings except the Bazaar lodgings and a handful that give criminals favors.

Criminal favors are acquired easily if you also buy the Alluring Accomplice and the Ruthless Henchman companions. Both their cards give favors. Just discard their "conflict" card.

POSI items like library or gym?

Bazaar lodgings? I want to obtain a lodging in a Spire Emporium as I already found Nadir, but I have only one Bazaar permit as of yet. What is the best way to grind Bazaar permits?

The War of Assassins in the Flit and Forgotten Quarter, definitely. If you choose your enemy to be "A Rival in Power", you gain 3 Bazaar Permits for every cycle.

For the Spire Emporium, I definitely recommend waiting until Christmas. It's much, much cheaper to buy then.

That depends on your stats and items.

The War of Assassins provides 3 x Permits for 34 actions.

However, with a Gang of Hoodlums and sufficient Shadowy, Thefts at the Flit provide 1 x Permit for every 10 actions.

At really high stats/items, the Overgoat card will provide 1 permit (plus another nice item) for 8 actions at ~75-80% chance using a second action, and heists will give you 2 permits (+200 cryptic clues) for ~15 actions.
