General NoteEdit

Wiki note: For most factions, the Connected quality has been retired

The entire faction connections system is being overhauled (one by one). The game is moving from a single Connection quality per faction into the dual qualities of Favours and Renown. See Raising Favours.

More details here: [1]

As such, for factions which have already gone through this change, the data in this guide is no longer applicable.

A list of factions already moved to Favours/Renown:


This guide lists the best repeatable methods in London for raising Connected values for characters whose major qualities are 100 or more.

General MethodsEdit

Faction Opportunity CardsEdit

Each faction has its own Opportunity card which provides an option to spend a few Pence to increase that faction's Connected quality.

[Todo: Fill in table with these actions]

Mrs Plenty's Carnival

If your Connected is less than 10, you can expend two actions and a Carnival Ticket to gain a certain amount of CP depending on the faction. This method can be used for all factions other than Benthic, Summerset and The Masters.

The Big Top (30 CP):

  • Bohemian
  • The Church
  • Constables
  • Hell
  • Society
  • The Tomb-Colonies
  • The Widow

The sideshows:

  • Criminals (10 CP, available upto Connected 15)
  • The Docks (10 CP)
  • The Duchess (20 CP)
  • The Game (20 CP)
  • Revolutionaries (20 CP, costs three actions)
  • Rubbery Men (12 CP)
  • Urchins (12 CP)

Connection ItemsEdit

These are items which allow you to increase your connections by sacrificing certain items. All are available at the bazaar, but some are available otherwise as well.

Connection items can be bought at the Bazaar (or gained elsewhere) and repeatedly used when you have Connected 10–19 with a faction. This takes three actions and gives 75 CP in exchange for 150p worth of items (2p/CP at 25 CP/action). Most of them can be sold for either 250p or 500p less than their purchase price making them good investments for certain endeavours. However, there are, of course, exceptions.
