The main problem I have with Fallen London seems to be remembering things. The game throws lots of stuff at you in a sideways, cryptic and arcane manner, and the little titbits of info often get lost along the way. I have a devil of a time remembering all the lore and keeping track of all the characters. Often there will be aspects of a certain story-line or theme that I don’t pick up on, because they are being encountered for the first time, and later once I know more about the topic I’ve entirely forgotten those first bits I read.
Sometimes the wiki is of limited use in helping me remember stuff, because the thing I am trying to remember is fate-locked. My worst sin is that I have been doing my ambition in small chunks. And every single time I get back to it, I have to trudge through the entire wiki section on it up to the point I have reached, because I have forgotten every damn thing I did and why I did it, and who the hell are these people anyway?
So anyway, I was perusing my qualities and noticed a few that I have absolutely no memory of. If any kind souls could help me with trying to make some sense out of them I would be very grateful. I’ve had enough of lost trails and dead-ends on the wiki for one summer.
So here goes:
- Empire’s Kingmaker What might that be connected with, and how might I have acquired it?
-Venture Challenge Level 1 How hard can it be? - What on earth is that when it’s at home?
- A Power in Waiting - A Guardian of the Realm To what end do you wait, in the shadows of Empire? - Excuse me?
- In Search of the Severe Bluejacket’s Mistress 30 - You have resolved the division on the Pyres, for better or worse You are on the trail of a Conflagrati leader suffering from the rare condition of animescence.
-Now I know where this one comes from, though I can remember almost bugger-all about the story. A shipwreck on an island, and two factions as I recall: The New Sequence and the Conflagrati. That’s right isn’t it? Okay, so I know about the New Sequence, I remember them from Sunless Sea, but who are the Conflagrati again?
Thanks in advance. I may well return to this some time, when I have forgotten more things, but this is more than enough for now.
