I need more skulls in order to finish the Nadir quest. Send me as many as you can please, I would greatly appreciate it. I accept most reasonable prices, even lethal duels if you're up for it.

Unfortunately, I've yet to hit the stat-cap on any of my main stats, so I kinda have to do that first. I'm around 140 on all my stats without gear. Spending favors on things that aren't renown is killing me.


There's also some storylines in Fallen London I still have to do (Foreign Office, Polythreme, some of the smaller islands that aren't Port Carnelian). Then there's my Ambition that requires me to go to the Iron Rebuplic and the Hell Faction cards never drop...

Pretty sure I saw someone else report this about ten days ago (unless that was you, too?) You should definitely contact support.

  • I recently ended up receiving a contest of beauty plant challenge and ended up winning. After about a day, I read my messages and saw that I had simultaneously lost and won against myself, even losing needs of a singular plant progress, instead of going against the initial person who sent me the challenge. Is this a bug I should report, or is this some weird interaction that occasionally happens and should not worry about?

    This place is nice.

    *walking down the beaches of bone and wriggling tentacles*

    Mmm... the fresh sea breeze...

    *donkeys but the word donkey is in quotation marks*

    A donkey! I haven't seen one of those in years! Such a hard-working animal!

    *drinking tea at a café with some spooky skeletons*

    Ah... refreshing!

    *eating rubbery lumps*

    Hm. These are actually pretty good!

    Better than I remember, even...

    This thread is useful - http://community.failbettergames.com/topic24815-sanguine-ribbons.aspx

    From what I understand... whoever has the storylet choice for a particular round chooses the stat for comparison. Eg. if I'm on the sparring storylet and choose a Dangerous option (whether it's a simple assault or powered by dream), the game measures my Dangerous stat with my opponent's Dangerous stat at that point in time, throws in a bit of RNG, and spits out a winner. Likewise with Shadowy. The Dream qualities would boost whichever stat they're attached to, but I don't know by how much.

    So generally speaking, whoever has the highest stat at the time of storylet choice will win the round, but this is not 100% certain as there's some randomness thrown in. But the greater the difference between the opponents' stats, the greater likelihood that the higher stat will win. So Lukeskylicker is right - best to have both Shadowy and Dangerous maximized with equipment, as you don't know which kind of attack your opponent might pick against you.

    The same principle goes for Chess games and choosing Watchful/Persuasive options. I'm not so sure which Menace boost map exactly onto which stat, but the descriptions give some clues. (Eg. I expect the Scandal option will boost a Persuasive chess move.)

    I've done so more trialling, and have found a way to avoid a trip into Death if you are a duel recipient, and lose.

    It involves camping out on the Messages tab without manual reloading of the browser page, or moving off to other tabs, until Messages auto-reloads and announces that you've been killed by the duel giver. Then you either accept Wounds help from Messages, or move to the Possessions tab and drink a Tincture of Vigour to get below Wounds 8 (I tried both methods successfully). This way, the Story tab doesn't seem to register your Wounds 8 and push you onto the unavoidable "A sudden darkness!" storylet which stops you from doing actions anywhere else.

    If my experience in previous posts still holds, I don't think this will work if you access http://www.fallenlondon.com/messages after you've been killed: you need to already have the Messages tab opened when you're killed. And do not reload the browser window (because this seems to reload the entire site including the Story tab), but wait for Messages to auto-reload and update the social action list itself. As long as you don't access Story between getting the kill notice and lowering your Wounds, "A sudden darkness!" should not auto-fire.

    TL;DR - if you're a duel recipient and you know you'll be losing, camp out on the Messages tab without reloading your browser, until you get the kill notice, then accept Wounds help or drink a Tincture. Basically the same strategy as for the old website. (I think Death remains unavoidable if you initiated the duel and lost.)


    I haven't tried to buy a Tincture from the Bazaar tab after I've been killed and drink it right away. So it's best to have Wounds help or Tinctures of Vigour on hand before entering a lethal duel.

    I just finished a sparring bout and received this gameplay tip: "Victory requires winning two out of three bouts. If you allow yourself to be inspired by your Dreams, your attacks will be more powerful; Frontal Assaults will empower Dangerous attacks, while Bewildering Ambushes will empower Shadowy attacks."

    My personal best guess is that you should try and raise both equally with your equipment and either start out with a dream quality (as you will lose this option after engaging in a bout) or try and get an instant leg up if your confident with an assault or ambush (as dream quality attacks might very well be more luck dependent).

    In theory, I believe, the idea is that you try and size up your opponent and chose which option you have a higher stat in.

    If you're a shattering force you should probably do an assault. If your opponent is a shattering force though you may do better by attempting an ambush.

    With that said though I just received my first sanguine ribbon minutes ago and as such not a leading expert on lethal sparring strategies (or non-lethal sparring strategies).

    I find myself delightfully surprised to learn that I qualify for membership in such a prestigious club that isn't!

    As such, I would like to formally ask for permission to join your un-society. A look at my peculiar onyx-colored ovoid, twice-triumphed enigma and my surprisingly forgettable wardrobe blemish should be plenty of evidence for my qualification into the halls of the Correspondent's Lounge.

    The searchable inventory is something I never knew I needed, but my oh my am I thrilled to have it.

    The color scheme is a little different, I grant, but as I used the mobile app for a while it isn't too unfamiliar. The cool tones are oddly relaxing. I do sort of miss the red being around since it drew my eye more - I find myself paying less attention to stat increases - but it makes sense it's only for menaces now. Habits being what they are I'll retrain myself eventually.

    The other thing I quite like is how much more readable hovertext is. Thank you from my eyes!

    The only bug I've encountered is the inability to view profiles. Hopefully that will be fixed soon- I'm a very smart person and managed to close my browser as I loaded a piece of story and now need to find someone else's echo of it.
