Characters may gain status by being seen in the company of their betters; these may likewise benefit by the cultivation of sycophants. When a character is a guest in the house of a character with a higher Social Level, he receives status points equal to the difference in rank between the highest neighborhood he is able to live in (not necessarily the highest being currently lived in) and the one he is a guest at (Neighborhood rankings are found on the Neighborhood Table).

If a character visits a neighborhood with a character of a higher Social Level, status points equal to one half the difference in their Social Level is received. The higher level character receives (or loses) status points based upon the difference in Social Level between them. Status points are determined for each guest separately. Players are free to work out any system of recompense they desire for this service.
