Someone is Coming
Someone will be here soon.
Measures how long until the Capering Relicker finds you.

This Quality is obtained through many opportunity cards, such as Connection Dependent Cards, or certain remembering cards in London.

Levels in this Progress Quality are named.

  • 1 - Distant Footsteps
  • 2 - Distant Footsteps
  • 3 - Distant Footsteps
  • 4 - Getting Closer
  • 5 - Getting Closer
  • 6+ - Just Behind Your Shoulder

Once level 4 is reached, an opportunity card will appear, once level 6 is reached the card can be redeemed for items, and a substantial chunk of quality is removed [20cp].

Once enough of quality is gathered, an opportunity card will become available to those in London.
