Weekly Fallen London Questions, 01/05/2023

Happy May Day, long live the revolution, and here’s this week’s thread for quick questions!

I’m pretty new, working my way through the “Making Your Name” quests. I was doing the “Raid on the Brass Embassy” storyline, and after choosing to betray the Constables I got to “Strange Fire”. I chose “You Provided a Lecture” because it was listed as the ‘Subtle Choice’ but instead my Daring increased by one and my Subtle dropped by 2 (which at my level is quite a loss). Are the notes about which choice increases which quality deliberately unreliable under certain circumstances or did something go wrong?
