So, I’ve recently come across a sizable windfall of fate, and I thought about using some of it to change my admitted to the house of chimes quality, since being admitted simply for being good looking is just so boring.
Problem is, I have no idea what the requirements are for any of them, and 20 minutes of google didn’t yield any results. I’m sure answers must be out there in the collective wisdom, can anyone shed any light on this? The wiki mentioned a list somewhere, but it didn’t have a link and I couldn’t find it.
I’d be more interested to know if any of this had any in-game effect.
For the most part one’s House of Chimes quality is just for flavour rather than something that has any effect. There is one that costs Fate to pick which unlocks a couple of options (Illegitimately Royal), but nothing major.
A couple? I am only aware of the Rainbow of Offerings option. Is there something else?
Also, incidentally, does anyone know what the unlock requirements for Traitor are? I’ve never seen it as an option but it’s a possible value…
There was one option during the Long-Lost Daughter storyline, I believe.
I don’t think that the admittance requirements for every option has been fully documented anywhere. As noted above, it’s mainly for flavour, so pick the one you feel is closest to the nature of your character. If you want the one with the greatest bragging rights, that’s Scarlet Saint, which requires very high austere, hedonist, connected:church, and connected: hell, I think. There’s a separate thread discussing how to achieve this.
Should be An Agent of Cheesemonger 25.
Anyway, here’s the list of requirement with no other spoilers:

How much fate does this cost?
It costs 30 Fate, iirc.
Also I think the greatest bragging rights reason would be A tormented solipsist ;)
For tormented solipsist, is Enigma 10 even possible to reach?
It will linger there forever, mocking the completionists.
Do we have updated Renown requirements for the list somewhere?
If not I have a fresh account that’s currently an Exceptional Friend not currently admitted into the House of Chimes:
A font of devil’s tears - 15 Hell Renown
Scarlet Saint - 40 Hell Renown (likely 40 Church Renown once that’s converted)
An inescapable Arm of the Law - 25 Great Game and 40 Constables
While we’re at it, could someone tell me whether anything in particular happens if I choose the SMEN option?
[quote=Dudebro Pyro]While we’re at it, could someone tell me whether anything in particular happens if I choose the SMEN option?[/quote]Something particular happens indeed. It’s quite painful, too.
Could I get some details please? Perhaps as a PM? Unless it’s just a bunch of menaces, which would be boring.
I do like how DISOBEDIENT is an option, now that I know what the GETTING AN UNCO-OPERATIVE REPUTATION quality is. Although I question why Chimes would know about that.
I’m also curious as to what the results of the Possibly a Lunatic option is. Knowing SMEN, it can’t be anything good.
I wish I saved the flavor text for A Possessor of Impossible Table Habits.
What is it? I can’t find it at all on the wiki.

It’s part of something secret which is best not discussed in detail in public. (I’ll pm you a hint).
And we all know there’s so much stuff on FL kept secret like that.
…there actually is, mind, but never mind that.
Point is yes, s’ not something that should be spoken of out loud. Again, though, why would Chimes know about that quality? Is it in the flavor text? Now I want to know what the result is when that’s chosen…
