In Echo Bazaar, what's the fastest way to earn Prisoner's Honey, assuming you've maxed out all of your stats?

Knowing nothing about the game, it sounds really dirty... – Nick T Apr 19 '11 at 2:20
@Nick T: Sounds dirty, but is much more about story-telling and eluding to such things, than actually containing "Scandalous" material. – Stuart Pegg Apr 19 '11 at 10:50

If you're popular with the Bohemians you can cash-in your connections for Honey at the Shuttered Palace.

Other than that you occasionally get Honey from opportunity cards, and there are some lowish level stories in Spite (Rob a Honey den) and Veilgarden (Write about your Honey dreams), that will net you a small quantity at a time.

These are the only sources I've come across so far (D85/W87/P66/S54).

You can't Rob a Honey Den once you've outgrown that story in Spite (once you've maxed out your Shadowy). Good point about the Bohemians in the Shuttered Palace. I'll use that! – Dan Fabulich Apr 20 '11 at 0:46
@Dan: Is it not possible to bring your Shadowy down enough with Ridiculous hats/Bottled oblivion/etc. ? – Stuart Pegg Apr 20 '11 at 6:59
As far as I know, you can only knock 20 points off your Shadowy: 10 for a Ridiculous Hat, 5 for Bottled Oblivion, and 5 for Talkative Rattus Faber. My maxed out Shadowy is 110; 90 Shadowy is not low enough to rob the honey den. – Dan Fabulich Apr 21 '11 at 17:55
@Dan: Fair enough – Stuart Pegg Apr 21 '11 at 18:26
An update: The Talkative Rattus Faber now gives -25 to your stats, and the Ridiculous Hat now permanently abuses your stats. You can, conceivably, get down to 0 in every Quality if you're willing to go through enough hats. – Paul Marshall Oct 2 '13 at 18:53

You can simply purchase Prisoner's Honey from Merrigans Exhange in the Echo Bazaar (in the Bazaar tab), for 4 pence each.

I have no idea whether this is more efficient than cashing in Bohemian connections, but it's definitely faster and more reliable.
