It’s Christmastime in the Neath—even the rats’ eyes have a certain festive glow.

ADVENT CALENDAR


From today until Christmas day, visiting the Fallen London Advent Calendar from midday will reward you with a gift, or something like one.

Click once to open the door for that day, and then click again to receive your prize!

Follow us on the channel of your choice (Twitter or Facebook) for reminders of when each gift is released, and check back frequently so you don’t miss out – each door is only open for a few days.

CHRISTMAS CARDS

Let your loved ones and enemies know you’re thinking of them: Christmas cards are now available!

Get your first parcel of cards through the advent calendar

Your stock of cards will be replenished weekly by Time, the Healer, starting on the 3rd of December and ending on Christmas Day. Send them to other players who are your Acquaintances (or, to send cards with a Fate cost, to other players who you are Contacts with).

Find them in your Lodgings, under Send a Christmas Card. Keep an eye out for this year’s contrary Mayoral card!

Find new players to exchange cards with on our forums, or on the Fallen London subreddit, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Use #flcards to show your interest!

GIFTS OF FATE AND NOTABILITY!

For the Philanthropic Londoner, two returning options for giving a little something to a friend (available permanently):

It is now possible to gift 50 or 100 Fate to other players.

You can do this from your Lodgings, on the Give a Gift of Fate card, or when drawing the Give a Gift! A commotion in the Square of Lofty Words card from your deck.

You can also give Notability to another player!

If you have two or more Notability, you can give a single point to someone who has none via the Recommend an Unknown Acquaintance option on A visit from Slowcake’s Amanuensis. The other player must also be ‘a significant individual’ or higher, and be Acquainted with you.

EXCEPTIONALLY FESTIVE MERCHANDISE


The Fallen London store is bursting with clothes, accessories and gift ideas for you and your delicious friends!

Featured is the Mr Sacks range, guaranteed to attract second glances, questions at your festive parties (is that Father Christmas? Where are his eyes?), and perhaps a few nightmares this holiday season!

Be certain to order your gifts with plenty of time for shipping! (Usually we’d tell you the cutoff dates for orders here, but Spreadshirt don’t seem to have published them this year.)

Update, 10th Dec: So-called snow is falling in Fallen London!

Snow has begun to fall all across London! Urchins are throwing snowballs in the streets!

Starting at noon GMT today, Time, the Healer will bring ‘snow’ to doorsteps across London. You’ll need to dig your door out, or find someone to lend a hand or tentacle to the task.

Fate can also be used to employ a certain cowled assistant – and earn unique seasonal Home Comfort items!

Acquiring pails of this ‘snow’ and learning what you can about it will unlock a selection of seasonal benefits at the end of the season, when Penstock’s Wicket opens on the 5th of January.

Note: The Snowbound effect will remain constant this year until sometime shortly after 7th January 2019.


A ‘GIFT’ FROM MR SACKS

The urchins have purloined the terrible sack of Mr Sacks once again! You may draw a gift from it (or send one to a friend) – for a price, of course.

Buy a lucky dip in Mr Sacks’ sack for yourself, or send a lucky dip draw to another player! Begin with Explore the Festive Season, available throughout London.


SEASONAL STORIES

On the 19th of December, a new festive premium story by Cass Khaw will become available for purchase. The Ceremony is a festive tale of rubbery romance.

Our previous Christmas premium stories are now available for purchase from Explore the Festive Season:


The Gift by Chris Gardiner
The parcel sits brightly on your doorstep. Its ribbon is an immodest red. The card is cream, and of excellent stock. It bears no signature, seal, or watermark. A tale of terror, aberration, and the horrors beneath the Palace.

The Empress’ Shadow by Emily Short
The Empress' Shadow, the only child of Her Enduring Majesty residing on the Surface, has come to London. Train servants for her in Sinning Jenny's Finishing School; uncover the political and familial intrigues that threaten London.

The Marriage of Feducci by Cash DeCuir
It is the first Royal Wedding since London fell: Mayor Feducci's proposal of marriage to the Captivating Princess has been accepted! Join the Beleaguered Wedding Planner in the Shuttered Palace to make or break this historic moment.


Enjoy, delicious friends!

This will be my first Christmas I'm actively playing! My character exists for much longer but I always managed to miss it until now. Looking forward to what else it brings. New premium story, cant wait!
Does anyone happen to know what the fate locked Christmas card's expensive wine is? Airag or tears?

Edit: Quick question, what happens to Christmas cards already sent, but not yet accepted after Christmas day?
Edit 2: So apparently you don't have to accept Christmas cards, they just happen. I can see why it is like that to avoid abuse, but it is also very easy to miss! I think it would be better if we received a physical item that unlocks a one use pinned storylet and that disappeared after Christmas just like the cards. This way you won't miss the fact you got a card.

P.S. The sending Christmas cards storylet still shows last year's option, locked with Key of Dreams smile

Huh, the fate thing is back. Neat.

Also I'm not sure the calender is working well with the new website, I did not seem to get the usual message or cards.

--
I will accept all actions, though I hold the right to refuse for my own reasons. However, if you explain WHY you send me a harmful action like Loitering or Dantes,And I feel the reason good, I will consider it more. http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Kylestien

Persuasive patron. You want a lesson, send me a message asking for one.

I'm trying to acquire the first advent gift but clicking it then logging in to my account doesn't seem to give me the item. Am I doing something wrong? (Doing this from my chrome browser).

Logging in from the linked page with access code worked for me. Do you see the message on the login screen at least? I got both a message on the login screen and a success message after logging in. Tried on 3 characters. It appears you're not the only one having trouble though.

I don't sadly. Clicking the advent code seems to redirect to the standard login link (https://www.fallenlondon.com/login)rather then keeping the code and having a message.

I'm also having trouble getting the first gift and this link redirects me strait to the standard loginupset

Pan Tofel, the ever curious empiricist is accepting all kinds of social actions.

Chrchleater, who has a good heart and a terrible fate, is doing so as well. Strange sorts of pranks are to be directed here.

It worked for me on Opera. No problems at all.

It's not working for me either - I tried both Chrome and Safari on Mac. Mysterious!

Glad to see I am not alone but it is unfortunate. I was looking forward to the start of Advent.

I'm also getting redirected to the usual login page. I've tried it on two different FL accounts, on both Opera and Chrome.

ETA: I just tried it again, this time in Firefox, and it worked.

For the holiday season, send me Christmas Cards for sips of Cider! Fogscapes with Tentacles strongly preferred. (Only one per character, sorry!)

PM me for information enigmatic or Fated. Though the forum please, not FL itself.
