I noticed a drop of about 20 fame after a couple of random events. But it has since dropped even more with seemingly no cause at all. What causes fame to go down?
Are you building Henchmen?
There's your answer. Henchmen cost 20 fame to build.
As others have pointed out in specific, so it is in general. Don't count upon any resource being always accrued in the game. They can get converted into something else you may want.
