Sinning Jenny's Finishing School (Guide)

From Fallen London Wiki

Sinning Jenny's Finishing School is a special carousel unlocked in Ladybones Road with The Empress' Shadow (FATE). The carousel is notable for being a source of several favours, but it's not very action efficient, and has a relatively low EPA. Each cycle takes 12 actions and gives a favour 50% of the time. When using unsuitable students, you may end up spending more actions. The finishing school also provides Credit, which may additionally be spent to convince Sinning Jenny, if she's a part of your Railway Board.

The finishing school has additional content during all recurring festivals.

Mechanics[edit]

Each cycle of the carousel consists of the following:

  • 1 action to enter the school
  • 3 actions to acquire pupils
  • 6 actions to advance your syllabus
  • 1 action to graduate a student
  • 1 Action to make use of your class

Choosing pupils[edit]

Pupils are split into two categories. Suitable pupils have no menace cards, but unsuitable pupils will cause you to sometimes draw opportunity cards that take up actions and give no progress, slowing down your class. The urchin additionally is the pupil that increases your credit, which is important. If you're aiming for a particular favour, you should make sure to bring the corresponding pupil.
