Could anyone direct me to a comprehensive guide to raising Notability? I'd very much like to find a reliable (i.e. cardless) grind for MW that grants more CP than the option in the Empress' Court. Does such a mechanism exist?

It's not up to date with all the recent Social action changes (specifically, hosting dinners, sparring, and chess).

Bugger, I didn't realise increasing Revolutionaries also increased Liberation of the night . . . (guess I'll forever have a low renown for them, oh well).

Is there any way to lower Liberation aside from what I think is "Lost in Reflections"? I'm happy to reset that story should I need to, but I'd rather not pay fate unless necessary.

Is "Operations at midnight" still the only way to get a Devious Raven Advisor? I just sent my raven (along with some pretty expensive items) to an unknown fate, and completely forgot Living Stories aren't a thing anymore. So if this method is retired, I'm...pretty screwed, but can't really blame anyone but myself.

Wait, living stories aren't a thing anymore? What did I miss?

Granted I didn't play for like 6 months so that's probably when it happened, but I haven't seen anything about this in any of the threads or posts I've looked through since then. Could I get a tl;dr please?

I was just about to embark on some Raven-farming myself, too.

I got a raven a few days ago myself, so it all seems to be in working order. Don't worry, you set it free. If it loves you, it'll come back

Living stories are indeed still a thing: I send my bitter saker falcon out all the time and receive it back in a few days time.

What's the status of Call in Favours in the Flit for revolutionaries? The wiki claims it's 720 proscribed material for 1 favor, but I'm incredulous. Anyone know personally?

That is the outcome that I experienced a few hours ago. I think that was still before the "official" announcement, so it may have changed.

Living stories are still functional. I got both top-level ravens within the last three weeks. They do sometimes feel like they take bloody forever, though. Waiting for the Screaming Map was painful; doubly so when I realized that I'd gotten two of the left side and none of the right. It shouldn't be more than a week for the Devious Raven to arrive.

So, what reworks to await now?
I guess, Connected: Duchess, Widow, University and Masters are not so easily converted and will be left for the time being.
Since it's social tieing-up, it's time for Scones and Short-Story social actions finishing or complete removal, no?
Another rather short thing is returning to grace at Court. Most likely return to Artist-in-Residence never was an option, so it leaves just a couple of options, like University return. No?

Off the top of my head, returning to the Court was either planned or hinted at, there's definitely an ambition update coming, and possibly some extra content for things like the Dilmun club (although that might just be my wishful imagination).

Whew! Thanks to everyone who replied. I remember reading there was some problem with Living Stories and the servers, and something in my brain just assumed they were retired and never came back. Didn't get the "A living story will begin soon!" message either, so I really panicked for a moment there!

Adding to Pyro's reply, I also remember there's supposed to be an update on the Last Constable's story.

Frankly, I'd prefer dealing with status and mechanical loose ends first - short storylets, not so hard to plan it all (no huge pile of connection gains to recode, for instance), out of sight out of mind and all this.

Oh, good question: why cannot you gain favours on conflict cards? Well, before it could be justfied with Connected-Favours asymmetry, but now shouldn't it be added? Maybe even 2:1 rate, still a better way for dumping unused favours.

Anyone else randomly lose all their great game favors? I can't seem to find mine at all, and I know I didn't spend them.

Is there a reason the Feducci Mayoral card doesn't tell you which option gives which result? Jenny's told you exactly what you're getting.

Does the Parthenaeum have any favours-granting options now, or should I just switch to Young Stags for Bohemians/Society?

No Parthenaeum favour options, no.

If you're purely going for money, you won't ever make back the investment from switching. 500 rostygold is needed to pay for those 3 favors, which is only barely worth it.
