Cabinet Noir[edit]

Disappearing is used for the purposes of removing Suspicion through the action Eliminate a good deal of suspicion within the Cabinet Noir. This requires reaching Disappearing... 10 to eliminate 33 CP of Suspicion, enough to drop it from level 7 and 5 CP down to 0.

Notably, if you ever get arrested, you will lose all of your Disappearing... progress.

This activity may be awkward to use, since it reduces Suspicion in batches only a few CP smaller than the maximum 8 levels. However, it is highly efficient. If you make use of the full reduction and are already in Balmoral, the whole activity takes a minimum of 12 actions, or 11 as a Midnighter, for either 2.75 or 3 CP per action. This is the best reliable form of Suspicion reduction outside of using social actions on an alt account.

Additionally, you can Track down evidence against you in Parabola for 30 CP of Disappearing.... If you have Glasswork of 12 and Shadowy of 275 or higher, this can be accomplished in 4.5 actions, or 9 actions for enough to cash in. Discounting the cost of moving between Parabola and Balmoral, this results in a Suspicion reduction of 3.3 CP per action. This is only profitable if you take other Parabolan actions in the same trip.
