Political Influence, Spring 1718

The below are the political influence totals following our spring event, 1718. These are the values you will use to submit any political influence bgs - not your Well-Regarded (Socialite) score. Keep in mind that these numbers are modified from your raw Socialite ranks by a number of factors that you can control during game (and that other Socialites may explain to you if you missed it). Political Influence, not Socialite, is your actual BGS skills, and Well-Regarded can only influence it, not dictate it.

The below list is public because it is fairly impossible to hide your level of influence, at least not without training.

  • Vaast Verenberg - 12
  • Countess Rukiye Maryam Nai’ma bint Maital v’Yasamin v’Jacinta no Kershawi Teuthida Alizé min bayt Amira - 5
  • Selena Anfrey - 5
  • Teodora " Téa" Serafina Valencia della Rossa Cieleone Teuthida Alizé - 4
  • Nathrach Rían Quigley - 4
  • Czesława Orzełbiełik Teuthida Alizé - 4
  • Julian Oddfellow-Absalom - 4
  • Frederick Comptess Northmarch - 3
  • Countess Annaliese Leopolda Liane Johanna Verenberg-Hossler von Silberholz - 3
  • Livewell Birkett Lureen - 3
  • Leland Casmirre - 3
  • Isaac Everhart - 2
  • Amity Harlow - 1

Hmm. I clearly did a couple things right.
I’m assuming one was “attend tea with Countess Soames”, anyone know what the other(s) might have been?

I read all of these as negative numbers at first due to the hyphen being used after the name… yeah, I had a little spit take moment, mind racing trying to figure out what everyone had done.

Clarification: Do we need to use Focus to use our levels on influence, can we only use them on one thing or can we split them, and do we enter them under Skills in the BGS menu?

Your influence is a normal bgs that you can use. It does not require focus. You may split them and enter them under skills.

Think of Political Influence as no different from Research or Experimentation in the way they’re used.
