Someone is Coming (Guide)

From Fallen London Wiki

Follow2.png Someone is Coming is a mechanic that is used throughout the game. 1 CP Progress is gained on many different cards, and once you've reached Level 4 (10 CP), someone will finally arrive. Alternatively, it may be cashed in on the Rob a drunk storylet in Spite.png Spite. This means that a normal reward takes 11 actions, and robbing a drunk takes 7 actions.
