So I’ve spent a lot of time doing the repeatable actions (chasing cats, bumping old ladies out of coaches, sleeping around veilgarden) but I’ve recently started taking part in what seem to be longer stories.
As an example, right now I’m working through The Curate and His Sister, which seems to be a long and ongoing story; I’ve put many many actions into it and it’s reasonably interesting.
There’s a couple catches; firstly I think I may not be entirely ready for it, my persuasive is quite high relative to my other stats and I make it even more so with my items (in order to avoid failing the checks in the story). The second, and more pressing, problem is that my scandal is really starting to get out of hand due to failed checks.
I had this to read on the "managing menaces" thread :
[color=rgb(194, 194, 194)]"Scandal is more problematic, in my opinion. The Tomb-Colonies are difficult to get out of compared to the other areas (there’s no free, repeatable storylet that reliably reduces Scandal). However, Scandal is the easiest Menace to get rid of; if you are sufficiently Admired, you can reduce it to 0 even if it’s at 7. And you [/color]will[color=rgb(194, 194, 194)] be swimming in Admired points after a while on the Persuasive path. (It’s not used for much else, so don’t worry about using it up.)[/color] "
That isn’t the most helpful for me at the moment though. Especially since I don’t know what this "Admired" quality is that is being mentioned. Should I just keep moving forward and make a trip to the tomb colonies when my scandal gets too high?
Here is my current character :
Watchful 20 [can be up to +8]
Shadowy 21 (-1) [can be up to +3]
Dangerous 18 (-2) [can be up to +6]
Persuasive 38 (+10) [can be up to +10]
Bizarre 0 + 1
PS: Can I store up "free evenings" or do they reset to 5 each week?
