Most generous Patrons of the Prosaic
I have just begun my journey in Fallen London this very week and am lacking in all things, including wisdom, advice, contacts, direction, goals, and skills. My current meager stats are:
I would be grateful for whatever aid might be offered and eager to repay my debts however I might. Please direct all inquires to one Saric.
Riddle: They come out at night without being called, and are lost in the day without being stolen. What are they?
Edit: A Kai Drakovir has graciously taken me as a student of the Shadowy arts. As my knowledge of Patrons and Proteges is as lacking as all else I’m not sure if I should close this inquiry or not.
Greetings. Delicious friends.
The Mercurial Traveller has seemingly found a home in the rapture and bedlam of London. He is recovering from his louche escapades and is now looking to find friends and perhaps a mentor. Whatever the luck of the draw, he is planning to face his destiny with a raffish wink and grin.
The Mercurial Traveller Profile
((Hello! I’m new to the game and would love to find a mentor and maybe some friends to do the social actions and maybe RP with. So far I’m still in the early game of figuring out what I want to do. I hope to hear from you and start a wonderful friendship ^_^))
Riddle: “Why is a raven like a writing desk?”
Edit: I have received a patron, thank you everyone!
Hi, my character Thyme Larkin is in want of a patron, ideally one that can help with Shadowy.
I’m new to the game and just looking for help with progression. Little-to-no interest in RP.
EDIT: Pennies2 has taken Thyme on as a protege. Thank you!
Sorry about that they should be available to accept. I forgot to leave the lab after spending my actions
milifilou is an insightful and perilous individual of indistinct gender
this citizen has recently been found embroiled in ever worsening menaces, due to efforts in information gathering currently being hampered by a distinct lack of cunning.
Dana Staircase, a crafty and intriguing individual of mysterious and indistinct gender new to the game, seeks patronage in the shadowy arts as they blunder incompetently through the travails of master thief-dom (currently 4) with marvelously insufficient stats, deeply unfounded confidence, and a willingness to gather or purchase a frankly unreasonable number of Rats on String for the topsy king’s assistance in matters of suspicion.
[Edit] Thank you Dess Alistair for your patronage!
Lamil seeks patronage in the persuasive or watchful(preferably) arts…
My current endeavors are putting me in an awkward position. I simply find myself not as inconspicuous as I hoped. And I’m getting tired of persuading the Constables to abandon their unsubstantiated doubts about my innocence!
Perhaps there is an Invisible Eminence willing to spend a few evenings with me, showing me the flaws of my technique? I would greatly appreciate such Patronage.

 Patron found, thank you!
Hello, I’m back to Fallen London after over a year(!) away, and excited to get back into things. My username is also Anelya over there, and my stats are as follows:
I am honestly struggling with getting everything other than Persuasive to 100, but especially Watchful! Help along those line would be super appreciated!
What else can I say? I got back into Fallen London after spending about 5 days straight playing Mask of the Rose I got back into Sunless Sea earlier this year, and now in-between playing Fallen London I’m obsessing over Sunless Skies. In Fallen London, I plan to follow the Journalist set of Professions, and my Ambition is Heart’s Desire.
Favourite Riddle: (What does it say about me that I actually have 2 files of my favourite riddles handy? ) With thieves I consort, With the vilest, in short, I’m quite at ease in depravity; Yet all divines use me, And savants can’t lose me, For I am the center of gravity. What am I?
(Not gunna lie, I think my list was from when I was like 15 and I dunno if this is still a favourite of mine…)
Calypso Cyclamen, a devious and intriguing individual of mysterious and indistinct gender, seeks legitimately any stat-based support as a new player to the game, who has played for less than a week. My goals (as far as I can tell) are to ultimately become a Rat-Catcher to accompany my Ambition to Bag a Legend!
- Watchful 39
- Shadowy 39
- Dangerous 32
- Persuasive 39
I’m uncertain what else to post about myself? I’ve seen others post about role-play, and I’m afraid I would be dreadfully not good at that, so maybe not that? But I’m happy to chat with a patron if they’d like! Or not at all, if that would be preferable! I honestly have no idea how interacting with other players works in this game. Hm… I guess, so far, I love blemmigans! I can say that for sure.
I must say, I don’t think I have a favourite riddle, although as a Dungeon Master for DnD, I do love puzzles and things akin to riddles, but a little more practical? I recently had my players find a wall in some ruins that had symbols you could only see in a mirror. One player had to look in the mirror and describe the symbols and what happened with them to the other players, while the other players had to cast opposite magic on the symbols - so fire magic on a water symbol, healing magic on a skull symbol, radiant magic on a ghost symbol, etc. When all symbols were activated, a secret magic wall opened to let them through.
Alice Aforethought - an inescapable, sagacious and breathtaking lady, newly returned to The Neath after a conspicuous 8 year absence.
Much has changed since I was last resident in the Neath, so many new faces. Many of my old acquaintances have disappeared,I’m somewhat alone and my memory of what went before is muddled; why am I holding this blunderbuss?
I would simply adore a patron who could reacquaint me with all of the goings on, both noble and nefarious. Are you looking for someone to make a dreadful scene at your next society function? Or are you simply looking for some engaging and esteemed company in the murky underbelly of the city? Look no further dear traveller,
My vitals are:
Watchful - 98
Shadowy - 37
Dangerous - 45
Persuasive - 93
As you may see, I’m as bright as a button, but circumstances compel me to develop more unconventional skills. Perhaps you can help?
Otherwise I’m open to regular or occasional correspondence from potential friends and frenemies alike.
I’m really more of a riddle solver, so I shan’t pass on another’s puzzle as my own, but I’ll impart my own personal mantra.
Be good … but if you can’t be good, be dreadful.
It’s been a long time away - memory fades, time heals, and a reckoning was dealt. But London, beautiful as she is, always calls you back. I’ve a new account, and could definitely benefit from a patron, especially in the shadowy arts.
