After meeting the Numismatrix, you may draw the Choosing a Side card which allows you to choose to align yourself with a faction and start the process of Counting the Days and Spending Secrets. Your alignment indicates the faction that you support in your soul (if you still own yours) so it can differ from the faction that you appear to be most closely allied with in terms of renown, favours, or connections.

After your initial choice, to abandon your alignment or form a new one, you must spend resources on the respective faction-specific cards (as shown in the table below).
