Yes, there is a hankie to worry about in the latest development build
of Ever, Jane
. Mrs. Hatch's hankie, to be specific. She's lost it before, she's lost it again, and it's up to players to retrieve it, assuming they'd like to curry favor with Mrs. Hatch. The build also adds a number of endgame raiding systems, by which we of course mean the first pass of the game's gossip and sleuthing system, key to the overall social experience of the game.
Essentially, the gossip system allows you to craft a few different potential responses to NPCs and to track what other characters are saying about your
character. This means that in addition to assassinating or bolstering the reputations of others, you can also try to sort out your own reputation for good or for ill. Take a look at the full update
for an explanation of the system, future updates, and other improvements in the most recent build.
