Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

7 Deadly Sins

Complete seven threads, one where your character displays each of the Seven Deadly Sins — Pride, Lust, Sloth, Envy, Weath, Gluttony, and Greed. Each thread should be at least ten posts, with at least three being your own. Character accounts can be combined.


question: reputation
why does moving up a class lower reputation? Are there ways to remove permanent reputation effects?
Social mobility in VE Britain was seen as a bad thing. While the US had "the American dream", those in the old world would actually have been uncomfortable with people striving to rise above their 'station'.

"One step" (WC -> MC or vice versa; MC -> UC or vice versa) changes only last a year; it's only when a character moves from UC -> WC or WC -> UC that the rep ding is permanent :) That said, even if there is nothing else wrong with you at all ever, you can still never be higher than a 9 again. Fortunately, 9 is still the higher end of "good"!

EDIT: Marriage-based mobility is a permanent ding because rather than moving around on your own successes, you're 'conning' your way into that class!
