For all who wants to know how the faction skills work, I report an old jstkdn post:

Hypotism: each case some suspects you can hypnotize in giving more suspects. Which means you have to ask less questions to the suspects.

Pugilism: enhances tough.

Pick pocketing: allows you to keep the money of the client is the guilty one.

Surveillance: you can hide outside of one suspects house, and sometimes get the answer to an extra question.

Underworld connection: for that escaped suspect thing.

Safe cracking: only useful if you are in an agency. Allows you to take the last key in treasure hunts that involves keys.


A big "thank you" to jstkdn for this.

I agree with Ran. I love Underworld.

I thought it is not possible to travel to other cities if you are not subscribed. But I saw some profiles where it seems the users are unsubscribed but still have contacts abroad.

How is that possible?

You must be subscribed to travel. But if your subscription lapses, you keep the contacts you've earned in different cities--you just can't travel anymore.

At which faction can you find stuff for though, for charm and for smart skills?

I have another question here. I am a very tough detective, and my status is I think 24 with the order of Socrates. I believe this was a mistake because they don't have any though stuff, only mindcracking things. If I want to get the real though stuff, where to go to, Cosa Nostra or Brotherhood? My guess Cosa nostra. And is it best to get that first special skill from the order of Sorcates, because otherwise all this effort will be for nothing.
And then maybe try to get in good favor for the cosa nostra because I need extra thougening skills...
Thanks

Yes, Cosa Nostra have some good tough gear, but the skill they provide is only useful for people in agencies and it's not something that helps increase toughness either. The Green Hand has a tough skill, but again you need to be subscribed to get that as the Hand isn't in NY :)

Kevino Albino, all that factions, what gear they have and what skills they have are mentioned on Reaper's Site.
You can find the site on the City Hall page via community links and I'm sure someone will post a link :)

I think a lot of that information you need is also mentioned on the Welcome Newbie's post.

Good luck and Happy Sleuthing.

Yes I know, but now I am working on my smart skills.
I just wanted to know if it is good to stay friends with the order even if they don't have the cool tough stuff I need. Or if it's time that I did some things in favour for the casa nostra.
And traveling isn't for me, I don't pay for things like this. Because I know I won't be playing it for long, at some point you're gonna wanna stop this game and the you realize that you just payed for several months of subscription. No thank you. I keep it free;)

Kevino, along the line of what you are saying for the subscriptions.

I think it is worth it just to pay for the one month sub, allow you to travel and build up a couple of the faction skills that are not available in NY. Then as you stop playing and come back once in a while you will have built up a stronger detective that you can have the occasional fun afternoon of cases with.

Ok, I may be dumb but could someone please tell me how to get in with faction bosses? Thank anyone who can help in advance.

Faction standing is tracked on the right side of your detective page.

Every once in a while you'll get a twist in a case that relates to the Factions (you'll recognize it by the picture of the woman with the magnifying glass). If you solve that case your standing with one faction will go up one point, and your standing with another faction will go down one point. The twist will tell you which factions (it will also show up on the Case Screen). Quitting the case will also change your standing with those two factions, but in the opposite manner.

Once you have a positive rating with a faction you can get into their HQ and offer to do "little favors" for the bosses. They'll direct you where to go and what to do. The locations of Faction HQ and more details about the little favors are available at many agency websites (or you can sleuth mail just about any of the older detectives).
