On a slightly different note, I was thinking about the possible relationship dynamics the MC could have with the various clubs and political figures.
For instance the text already mentions that a MC who argued against Wulfram but accepted his (Wulfram’s) invitation was been given the cold shoulder by everyone save Wulfram (And ol’ Emile), despite being the guest of Honour. So I’d have to wonder at what the dynamic would be for a MC who joins said club.
Would they take the role of Honourable opposition? And what would that look like in terms of interactions? (Well beyond the obvious everyone “ignoring” or giving you the cold shoulder like Young Pallisier.) Would there be room for a particularly intelligent or Charismatic MC to turn the perception of them into something resembling a Devils Advocate or friendly debater?
Of course this runs into my other question, as Cata has done an excellent job at making most (Especially Pallisier and Wulfram) of the political actors likeable / redeemable in their own way. Will there be opportunities to cultivate a friendly enemy relationship with them (As it seemed like Wulfram is an honourable if perhaps emotional debator).
Cause truth be told nerding it out with Wulfram to discuss vapour engines sounds awfully fun.
Though Vice versa, will there be opportunities outside of the political arena to aggravate political enemies?
