Gaining A Criminal Reputation

This story begins with an Opportunity Card.


A fair sized job for the right cracksman. [Standard]

There's a big job planned… Following this path will eventually gain you a Gang of Hoodlums, making you more Dreaded.
Unlocked when A Person of Some Importance is: A Significant Individual, A Paramount Presence, A Shattering Force, A Legendary Charisma, An Invisible Eminence, or An Extraordinary Mind

Accept the job

This sort of caper needs takes all sorts. Some clever sod to plan the job, a fellow with the sense to handle fire, a mole in the Constables, lookouts, enforcers, and a skilled cracksman for the safe. Someone like yourself.

Option 1: Spread some money about

Like the seigneurs of old, a baron of the underworld must appear generous. Sometimes.

Option 2: Give up on this

Perhaps you don't need a gang of criminals after all.

Option 3: Make an example of an informer

Throw him to the devils for their hunt around the Forgotten Quarter. Let everyone know what happens to those who inform on you. Make his family watch.

Option 4: Make the beggars respect you

The Raggedy Men of the Flit are the Topsy King's invisible army of eyes and ears. Not that he seems to do much with them. You must make them fear your name.
[A matter of luck: it could go either way].
