London is indeed a city of legends. Her people are her stories. The good, the bad, and the normal are the soul of her life. A thousand strings, of blood, shadows, knowledge, and charm tie us all together. Even when London is gone, these stories will remain. The Bazaar has a name for the particularly legendary- Paramount Presences. If you have the honor of being one, please state your name, profile, and preferably your profession (as well as vote for your preferred stat)

Correspondent. As for stats, I very slightly prefer watchful in intent, and shadowy in action - but I have always advanced all four.

I don't really need any of the profession items, and I'm pragmatic and want the cash; don't need the eclectic items from T3 payments :p

Doctor, Persuasive. The main track professions were a little too serious to pick in-character.

Congratulations, Dov! If you don't mind, I added a tidbit about your Seven-Fold Knock.

I am still trying to make it to Notability 15, so I can take my Watchful to 215, before I switch specializations. Darn it.

But I wish to congratulate our Paramount Presences to date, especially dov and Estelle Knoht. They have been playing FL forever (or so it seems to me, another early adopter) and they deserve this distinction.

Yeah, it's weird to suddenly start discarding things like the Gambling Den card, which I was eagerly playing any time it popped up for weeks, and now it's useless again...

Some of my item stores have dwindled greatly, especially Influence items (Stolen Correspondence and Intriguing Snippets), Moon-Pearls, Diamonds, and Carnival Tickets (I've spent hundreds of those).

How about writing a guide to PP?

99% of the work is about raising Notability, and (except for very specific tricks) it's covered by this excellent guide.

(Note that the guide isn't up to date with the very latest changes to Social Actions - i.e. dinners, coffee, chess, sparring, etc.).


An example of an advanced trick: since most significant MW boosts come from cards, drawing more cards is more important than using actions efficiently. So if you have Cider, you can spend 2 actions to die via Heart's Mirror and come back (3 actions if you need to cause yourself Wounds first), and this will quadruple the cards in your deck. So if you're an Exceptional Friend (can hold 10 cards), doing this when you have 3 cards in your deck will refill them to 10. Effectively, you're trading 2-3 actions (and 5 Carnival Tickets) for the ability to draw 7 extra cards.

If you have the Carnival Tickets, then you can draw up to 101 cards first thing in the morning (when your deck and action pool are full), before having to wait for anything. Some of these are bound to be those that give lots of MW (or items used for MW, such as Favours: Society).

I'm not entirely sure if this even legal, albeit using the similar method (with Flit) in my preferred farming method. smile

Also, Correspondent by the will and definition, so mostly Watchful.

Why not legal? It's using the established mechanics of the game, as designed (though in a creative way).
It's also not without significant cost (in actions and Carnival Tickets).

dov, that is very creative.
Though available to only few, this is very interesting technique. I'll try and remember this when in need of op. cards in the very distant future (upon gaining the Cider).

If you have light fingers, you can do the same thing by entering and leaving the orphanage. (Of course, then you can't progress with your ambition)

Similar effect (doubling on enter, quadrupling on leave) makss Heists actually wotthwhile, with nice touch of random so needed in the long grinds.

thanks for the list but total notability cost is useless since 15 notability is a lot more as 3 times 5 notability.
