Some of the fun things you can do within the Mud.
Genuan Families - The Coffee Nostra
There are three Coffee Nostra families.
- Corolla, in the Stables.
- Gumboni, in the Casino.
- Couer Lion, in the Pizzeria.
Families assign missions. You must be in good standing with a family to join it.
The Coffee Nostra system is shrouded in mystery and intrigue, with the "getting them to like you enough to let you join" question being the biggest one that tends to stump people as far as I can tell. From my investigations, discussions, bug replies, etc, here are the few bits of info I'm relatively sure about: * Killing the important members of a family makes them all dislike you, but killing the nameless goons is fine (and may indeed help) - this is to discourage killing the important members who are needed to interact with the family system. * You can raise your rep with the Corolla family (in the used horse yard) by winning matches in the fight club in the sewers. * I suspect you may be able to raise your rep with the Gumbonis (casino) by doing things at the racetrack or casino... I'm not sure if winning money or losing it would make them like you... or if it has any impact. * There is (or was - may have been changed) no lower limit to your reputation with families. So if you have hunted family areas and killed the important members repeatedly in the past, you may as well give up until a cre has time to poke things, since your rep is probably well beyond reasonable recovery.
Grimrak commented that "If you kill any family's Consigliere, you will annoy every family."
If you join an Agatean family, you can perform missions for them.

You can also rent scrabble, chess, backgammon, six nimmt, and mastermind games at the pub in the Lower Djel Trading Post, south of the Klatchian Foreign Legion outpost.
The rules and syntaxes for these games can be found in the help files for the boards themselves (so that you can "help scrabble" if you have a Scrabble board, for example).
