Inter City Favour Question

I just wanted to be sure on a couple of points:

1) What happens when you hear about a favour you can do for someone ("I think the banker has some work..."), but then travel to another city?

2) What happens when you are 'due' a favour case (but haven't asked anyone yet), and travel to another city? Can you get a favour straight away in the new city?

answer to 1) I just had a favor waiting in NY and I traveled to delhi. No one there had a favor for me. So I guess its city bounded. I wonder if the butcher favor will be there when I get back.

Phileas, asked the same kind of things myself until a couple things happened to me. So according to my recent experiences, here's your answers -

1) the favor waits in the city you left UNLESS you earn (and I think open) a favor in the city you travel to before you return - if you do that, you'll lose the favor in the first city. I'm not sure if just earning the favor loses the first one you got, or if it's actually doing the favor that deletes your origional favor.
(The reason reda got no favor in delhi is simple - the favor isn't available until you solve enough cases to earn a favor *in that city*, so cases solved in new york won't affect the number of cases need to get a favor in delhi.)

2) no - the cases it takes you to get a favor are locked to a city.

I just wonder if ther are extra favors. Like, leaving new york you get a message like, "You've correctly accused three killer whales. Congratulations! Here's a Leather Banded Fedora in return." :)

The simple answer is that you cannot save a favor in all 4 cities i already tried this method and it does not bork. i lined up 4 favors in each city and when i went back to those 2 cities they were gone. so to 1 that is the simple answer. You can only hold a favor in one city at a time.

When you leave the city you lose the favour that favour is gone for good.

I figured you could get four favors then do one and they were all gone, guess not (thought so because I did a favor in London and lost one in NY, never tried holding mulitple favors though).

Good thing that today I read the boards before I did anything else, since I was about to go to London (and unknowingly lose a favor in NY). Thanks for telling me I need to stay put until I do the music teacher favor in NY.
