I'm sure that you wonderful lot have noticed that there are three new stats: Respectable, Dreaded, and Bizarre. I haven't had any actions that increased these, though some of my Person of Importance items boost them. Any speculation on what they'll be used for? Or are there stories that already require them?

No idea what they'll be used for yet, but I pulled some intel about what gives bonuses to what from the other thread discussing the Endless Actions policy:

OK, so till now:
Early reported the Majestic Pleasure Yacht gives +2 Respectable, and the Obdurate Stallion +2 Dreaded.
Proto Omega mentioned the Zubmarine gives +1 Bizarre.
The Bazaar also added some descriptors:
- Respectable Grey Gown, Dignified Tailcoat, Morning Suit and Formidable Gown all give +1 Respectable;
- Ratskin Suit +1 Dreaded;
- Emerald Gown +1 Respectable;
- Distinguished Gentleman's Outfit +1 A Brazen Fate;
- Immaculate Frock Coat and Magnificent Midnight-Blue Evening Gown +1 Respectable;
- Sumptuous Dandy Outfit and Exquisite Ivory Gown +1 A Brazen Fate;
- Bengal Tigress +1 Dreaded;
- Overgoat +1 Dreaded and +1 Bizarre.

Any other hint?

A couple:

Membership of God's Editors gives +4 respectable
A Newspaper gives nothing
A Clay Sedan Chair gives +2 bizarre
A Velocipede gives nothing
A Zub gives +1 bizarre, not +2. Or to put it another way, my Zub gives +1 not +2. Maybe others have superior weirder models (though I doubt it).

Gang of Hoodlums gives +2 dreaded

Parthanaeum gives +4 respectable

I seem to be much more respectable than I intended, haha! (Surely the yacht should be scandalous rather than respectable? *grin*)

This is very very hush hush, but my *whispers: Boneless Consort * gives +3 Bizarre


Quotes included to give credit where it is due.

Edit: Oh, just noticed--references to "A Brazen Fate" should be ignored, if they haven't been removed from the game yet already.

I assume they're not highway stats, both because they don't use animal icons and because that would be an incredible amount of extra work for the development team. However, they must be something interesting to appear in he sidebar.

Though if they did use animal icons, might I suggest:

Respectable: Stag. Formerly rooster, but they look terrible head-on.
Dreaded: Shark
Weird: Platypus!

I'd do an octopus or squid for Bizarre, personally. Or perhaps the famous Octocrow.

I wonder if advanced Lodgings will eventually add to these stats? They seem to line up very easily - the Lofty Tower is surely Respectable, the Western Tower is Dreaded, and the Tower of Sun and Moon is Bizarre, no?

By taking on an opportunity that will lead you to a Clandestine Rendezvous on Watchmaker's Hill. For the kitten, say the urchins sent you. I've a weakness for children and animals.

Hungover Terrier: Bizarre +1
Bandaged Raven: Bizarre +1

I'm holding out for the inevitable Amused stat.

Animal Icon will be, His Amused Lordship, naturally.

News in the Neath: Noted citizen of Fallen London, Abraham Bounty, has acquired six hundred and sixty six souls. Additionally rumour has it that the lion's share of those souls was from a theft of The Brass Embasy itself. We are quite certain that this portents nothing ominous for him. Well, nothing unusually ominous anyway.

My pet for hell: Preening Macaw +1 BIZARRE

On a side-note can you equip the other pets? Because my Macaw is a useless curiosity at the moment.

Taciturn Mynah is +1 Respectable, and does not yet appear to have is own icon (same as the dazed raven adviser- unless mynah birds are also white in the neath.) It also comes with the Fingerwork quality.

What faction gives you the Taciturn Mynah, if I may? I'm compiling a little guide out of personal curiosity.

The Docks. A fine gent was kind enough to loose him at dice just before mentioning he wasn't worth anything.

What were you gambling for if I might ask?
