Or, to give it its full title, The Traveller’s Friend: A (Hopefully) Helpful Guidebook for The Pursuit of Achievements, Adventures and Accoutrements in London Below.. You can find the spreadsheet here.
The Traveller’s Friend is a spreadsheet to help you manage and plan your Fallen London goals. It includes tables with various things you might like to do or to obtain along with a list of their requirements, the idea being that you have everything you need in one place. You can track your progress towards financial or narrative accomplishments and mark them off as you go, making it much easier to remember what you’ve done and how far you’ve got to go, or to find something new to do if you’re at a loose end. There’s also a ‘Notability Calculator’ which you can use to assist you in your quest to grace the cover of Slowcake’s Exceptionals. Picture a valet in octavo form. I hope you find it helpful!
How do I use it?
Open the link to the sheet, then press ‘File’ and ‘Make Copy’ (you need to be logged into a google account). Then you can edit to your heart’s content! (I like to colour code finished tasks and grey out anything unavailable to me).
A few things to note:
1). I didn’t intend this to cover absolutely everything you could possibly seek to do in FL (including, er, Seeking), and there are no details of anything Fate-Locked (there’s a list of Fate-Locked stories & their prices, as well as BDR items, but that’s about it). However if you think there are any glaring omissions please do let me know! There’s a blank table with room for any personal goals you might have on the ‘Quirks & Dreams’ tab. I will endeavour to update the template as more things are released or I have time to add in other ideas.
2). I have not included every possible source of favours, only those which are repeatable and accessible regardless of your stats. The sheet is intended for quick reference & character management rather than a replacement for the wiki.
3). I hope the formatting works, but I’m not that familiar with Google Sheets so, yeah. I hope it doesn’t set anything on fire. Let me know about any errors, typos or other problems.
4). Thanks both to the wiki and particularly to rahv7 for their excellent threads on sources of favours.
5). Please feel absolutely free to reorganise the thing or add/delete items as you see fit. In particular if there’s anything that would make the sheet more accessible to my fellow disabled players please let me know.
