Wellllllllll that's not entirely accurate. There is exactly one way you can lose it (and all of it in one go in point of fact), but you would have to be half mad before you ever saw the option.
Oh wow. Does this remove Renown too, now? Wasn't the case last time I checked... neat. I'll amend the text then wink

@lady ciel & Pumpkinhead: I'm familiar with these but don't consider rare successes "grindable" so I chose to omit them.

I'd argue that, being repeatable, it's still worth mentioning. The Polite Invitation in particular is both very profitable and quite frequent (meaning players will be going through it pretty often), and 20% is really high for a "rare" success, so I think it's worth mentioning as a non-negligible source.

You did list the Great Game option from the same Dr Schlomo card - I don't know if the chance of getting a GG favour from that option is higher than for the Tomb Colonist but it seems odd to mention one but not the other.

No Calling Cards or boxed cats please. Will take dupes on the affluent photographers. Other social invitations welcome though loitering might be inconvenient at times. Parabolan Kittens usually available, send me an in-game social action saying you want one and I will get one to you as soon as possible.

I think the dance one is worth mentioning too, since even though it's a low chance, people already go to parties for other favors. Might as well make it known, since a 20% chance is better than doing a firey dance and cards aren't always useful.

@lady ciel re: Schlomo/GG: you're right - the wiki doesn't list it as a rare success. I believe that's a mistake, since all the other options only give a Favour/Connected on rare successes. Will amend.

Okay all, you've convinced me, I'm going to add these things. About A Polite Invitation, I personally never use that, so I thought all those options rather fringe-y, but if people *actually* use them... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ wink


Edit All done! Thanks for the list, Wiwo/Tyrconnell, that's really helpful! Now I finally begin to see why people use A Polite Invitation... Quiet

A Polite Invitation is definitely a major source of favours.
As Tyrconnell summarized well in another thread:

6: Brass Ambassador (card, 2 Hell favours)
5: Tentacled Entrepreneur (card, ~50% Rubbery favour)
4: Turkish Girl (card, +3 Talk of the Town instead of +2)
3: Stick to something stately (~20% Docks favour)
2: Jovial Contrarian (card; Society favour) or Tentacled Entrepreneur (card, Rubbery favour)
1: Brass Ambassador (card, Hell favour) or Tentacled Entrepreneur (card, Society Favour)
0: Quiet Statesman (Society favour) or trade Talk of the Town for rewards

So the 40 renown item for both Great Game and Bohemians are at the Mirror Marches? Interesting...

Well, I just sold the Nadir's location to Revs and feel slightly miffed. Here's the breakdown of rewards you get for selling to:

Revolutionaries: a 1562.60E item
Great Game: a 1560E item plus 7 Favours, 5 CP Renown; Subtle gain, Steadfast drop
Urchins: a 312.50E item plus 7 Favours, 10 CP Renown; Daring gain, Melancholy drop
Hell: a 312.50E item

I'm aware of FB's stance on issues of "balance", and Hell's interest is said to be marginal. But February says the Revolutionaries need the info "desperately" - so I would've expected some Renown at least. Also, the distribution of Quirk changes seems rather random. Ah well...

Edit
It'd be great to get confirmation on which kind of works you complete at Court grant which (and how many!) Favours!

I think I tried writing one of the works which used to give a bunch of Bohemian connected, and surprisingly didn't get any favours - but my memory is hazy so I might be wrong.

One error I noticed-- "Find an Unusual Home for your Mark of Credit page" only grants Favours for factions you can actually be Closest To (Revolutionaries, Tomb Colonies, Criminals, Hell). It doesn't give any Rubbery Men Favours, sadly.

It appears that Court works have been nerfed. They now give Making Waves where they used to give Connected. There might still be rare successes for Favours, but so far no one seems to have encountered any...

It seems, this route for Favours: Bohemians does not work anymore as for yesterday:

Fate-locked: one ending of The Blemmigan Affair adds a storylet to the faction's card for 0-1 Favours along with some Romantic Notions and Memories of Distant Shores

Got this card twice, and there had been no 'favours remains unchanged' for me.

Are you certain you had Bohemian Favours at the time? If you're at 0 it doesn't display a message at all unless you gain one.
