Sidebarbizarre Sidebardreaded Sidebarrespectable

Once you become A Person of Some Importance (POSI), a notability quality is assigned to your character. Certain professions and perks require you to accumulate higher levels of notability. Your Bizarre, Dreaded, and Respectable qualities allow for a reduction in the Making Waves cost required to gain notability using the following formula:

Sidebarmakingwaves Making Waves [20 - (B+D+R) + 4 * N]

For a list of specifically bizarre, dreaded or respectable items, see Bizarre Items, Dreaded Items and Respectable Items respectively.



This page lists all known BDR items, in order of total value, as well as

  • the items' Bizarre/Dreaded/Respectable nature,
  • the items' source locations, linked to their source storylets,
  • the components and story paths that are needed to obtain each item, from scratch (for a PoSI), and
  • any extra content each item unlocks.

For those who wish to be notable: optimize to your hearts' content.

Max item bonusesEdit

Note: In addition to bonuses from items, up to two points of Bizarre/Dreaded (or alternatively a single point of Respectable) can be added from getting (or refusing) a Tattoo during the Feast of the Exceptional Rose (only once per year).
