I'm stat-capped and I just got a business card from her. (I got very Suspicious and taunted her when the constables started closing in.) Now to see if I get any assignments...

I thought I recall getting one from a different card (The highest-tier on the "trade Connected: Constables for Watchful" card), but I don't see it in my inventory in a quick scan. Which section does it wind up in?


It's under Curiosity - it's a picture of her face. And I just noticed it's useable! Awesome.

I'm totally chuffed to hear about the Connections cards, too.

The "Trade Connections" cards have been tweaked. They've been transformed from "totally annoying" to "great" in the last update -- good work, FBG!

What did they change, exactly? For now I just kept discarding them (I had more pressing business to attend with my Actions ^^)

They apparently offer a better exchange rate on stats for the training ones, and the conflict cards now give you items.

Not quite - the changes are just to the cards that set one Connected faction against another. There are two changes:

  • The old branches, where you choose to favour one faction over the other, now provide a profitable Connected exchange. You'll gain more Connected with the faction you favour than you lose from the one you don't. If you're after a particular sort of Connected, these cards are now a good way to get it without the previous steep cost.
  • Some of the cards also have a new branch that pays out in rare items (like Romantic Notions, Tales of Terror!! and Maniac's Prayers) - you'll always get some even on a failure, and will get more on a success.

Some of these cards now say that you have a major gain against a minor loss, while others still say that you have a major loss against a minor gain. As such, I suspect that these changes may only apply to some of the cards, not all of them. A shame.

I do like the fact you can arrange a compromise for some of them.

Feels more realistic that you're character could use their connections to act as a mediator.

I like this idea too. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a quality that measured your ability as a negotiator/mediator? That would give those of us who choose not to take sides in Church vs. Hell etc. something to show for our balancing skills. wink

No, it's all of them. It's possible some of the guidance text is outdated - I'll check.
