Hello everyone,

I would like to introduce myself under the pseudonym of my character, Vial Laudanum. I am intending to begin writing about her adventures in the fanfiction section here smile

But really, I'm also Jess, and I only recently found Fallen London through The Allusionist podcast. Very pleased to be here! I am a bit of an amateur writer anyway, so I'm quite excited about having something lovely to write about in character!

Eustace here!
Pleased to meet you, gentlemen and ladies!
Both in Fallen London and in real life I'm an utter oddity, something in between a soulless and a tomb-colonist.
But heeeeeey, it's not a reason to stop the fun!

Oh my, I do beg your pardon! How clumsy of me to run right into you like that. And now your fine coat is all out of sorts and covered with crumbs. Please, allow me to set things right...

There, all fit and free of burdens! Again, my humblest apologies and...oh, that's very kind of you to say. Thank you for your, ah, generosity, and a very good evening to you.

Oh hi there!
Why are you looking at me like that? Sorry my mind is kinda occupied, I'm always haunted by dreadful nightmares, sleep is a privilege for me. I wonder how, I still have not taken to a mental hospital...

You look like a lovely individual and it seems you have some sort of interest in me. Then I shall introduce myself. They call me doctor and I'm new in the Neath.(interesting weather by the way) The name is Alessandra, I go by the name Sky in my dreams.

But please, I wouldn't want to turn this into a boring conservation. So don't just stand there do come in and let us share a bottle of wine! We'll tell stories with excitement while getting to know each other.

Bonjour (ou bonsoir peut-être),

I hope this finds you well and rested. I am afraid I must make your acquaintance proper at a later date, as you were asleep when I visited. You looked quite peaceful when I checked, too, so I was not so rude as to rob you of your rest. After all, I did rob you of several of your valuables. I do hope it is nothing you will miss... much. You will notice I left that van Ceulen on your wall; I must regretfully inform you it is a forgery, albeit a convincing one. I must commend you for your good taste though. You can tell a lot about a person from how they furnish their dwelling, and I am certain you and I would get along splendidly, in better circumstances. I fear I must cut this visit short, but here is my card, and a little token of my regard.

Veuillez agréer, chère victime, l'expression de mes sentiments distingués.

Armel Lopin,
Gentleperson-burglar

Hi, guys! I'm back! Not entirely back, because the reasons why I stopped posting still exist (basically, needing all free time I could muster to work on my personal projects, particularly my ten-year-old comic strip), but when I got the e-mail from Failbetter about the new election, I suddenly missed this game and this forum so much that I had to come back for a little. I'll probably not engage in in-game roleplay, but I'll probably post a bit in the forums for fun. I have a half-written thing from last year that I might finish and post soon. wink I apologize in advance for all invitations I couldn't accept when I was away from the game. I can't promise I'll never skip an invitation ever again, but I'll certainly be entering FL during election, so there's that. :3

You can hit me on any of my profiles below. I'll take protegés, if they need a Watchful teacher. ^^

Posting because participating in this community is quickly turning into an absolute delight! I'm mezzocarattere, currently in the 'Neath as Chivioletta. I played years ago, took a hiatus, and am very happy to be back and receiving all kinds of in-character messages from well-written strangers.

Chivioletta, currently of no importance, presents as a flighty Bohemian-cum-Society woman with practised manners, a quick tongue, and taste that runs a bit towards the outré. Under the surface, she's an unabashed Hedonist and sensation-seeker with ties to Hell, who Spirifies on the side and is admitted to the House of Chimes due to her "private talents." Her ultimate loyalties are to the Great Game and, of course, her Heart's Desire. She welcomes all social actions and is particularly delighted to be licentious and/or scandalous.

Ah, another player of the Game... although something tells me our loyalties diverge somewhat.

Hope to see you around on the forums, then!

While out for an evening stroll along the waterfront, you spy Slowcake's Amanuensis shuffling hurriedly down the Docks, his eyes darting around nervously. Suddenly, the oily little man stiffens like a rabbit catching the sound of a distant hound. Then you hear it too: the rhythmic thumping of heavy boots on cobblestones. You turn and see commotion in a nearby crowd: a crash, followed by curses from sailors as a lamppost keels over in the distance.


Slowcake's Amanuensis fidgets with his notebook as he looks for an escape, but the only nearby door leads into a raucous dockside tavern.


The Amanuensis looks hopelessly at the tavern door, then back at the broken lamppost. He takes a deep, sorrowful breath, holds his nose, and dives into the bar.


Meanwhile the crowd of cursing sailors parts as a teetering sedan chair careens towards you! Two clay men carrying the chair just manage to avoid you, but not before tipping the sedan chair into the stand of a nearby fishmonger.


In a fluid motion that’s distressingly well-practiced, a young, leggy person-of-indistinct-gender hops out of the overturned sedan chair while tossing a heavy coin purse to the exasperated merchant. The handsome Londoner adjusts a disgruntled top hat and smooths out their alarmingly-shaded dress before extracting a brilliantly bejeweled cane from a nearby fish pile.


You shield your eyes from both the cane and the eye-watering dress as the person of dubious importance strides up to you.


“Pardon me my good fellow, but did you happen to see a short, fidgety man run by just now?”


Their broad smile dips a bit when you don't respond, "Oh, pardon me! Where are my manners?”


Their red eyes gleam as they pump your hand vigorously with their meticulously-laced leather gloves, “The Six Handed Merchant, at your service! My mates call me ‘Six’. What are my wares, you ask? Why information of course!"


The Six Handed Merchant launches into a well-rehearsed spiel, complete with sweeping hand gestures: "From the hopes of Valkyries to the mysteries of death! From the wonders of the flesh to the secrets of radical science! From to the music of the Correspondence to the intrigues of the Court: I indulge in it all! I traverse the web of London’s secrets. If its truth you seek, I am your investigator! I also do lectures, book signings, honey dreams, and parties. No name-seekers, please."


Six ends with a sweeping bow, but eyes you quizzically when you don’t react. “You…haven’t heard of me? Well, that’s fortunate for us both, because I’m afraid that I am too busy for autographs. I am in the middle of an important case: The Case of Slowcake and my Missing Third Star!”


“Come George! Come Garfield!” Six calls out to the two clay men extricating the sedan chair from the fish stand, “We must press on before the trail gets cold!”


------


Good evening everyone! smile Feel free to send me whatever (non-hostile) social interactions you like! And Six will see you in Fallen London!
