Since Failbetter Games has been more often giving credit for stories, I thought it might be worthwhile to collect them in one place for players. If you rather like an author's story, you might enjoy others by them, for example.

Major credit to Jeremy for digging up authorial credits from Fallen London and Sunless Sea for me. Feel free to tell me others if you know them and I will add it to here.

Fallen London Exceptional Stories:

Lost In Reflections - Richard Cobbett & Alexis Kennedy
The Last Dog Society - Rob Morgan
Discernment - Emily Short
Flint - Alexis Kennedy
The Art of Murder - Gavin Inglis
The Waltz that Moved the World - Cash DeCuir
The Haunting at the Marsh-House - Chris Gardiner
The Frequently Deceased - Emily Short
The Seven Day Reign - Chris Gardiner
The Pentecost Predicament - Richard Cobbett

The whole Iron Republic content in FL was written by Nigel Evans ("Goatdance")...

I'm interested to know who wrote Cut With Moonlight. I can't seem to find the writer.

This is such a lovely idea, thank you. Our writers will be preening all afternoon. But!

For a lot of the game's content, this is a bit like tilting at windmills. Even when there's a lead writer, at least four other people will have made a profound contribution to the piece. In the case of older content, more and more of it is getting rewritten, restructured, or expanded, and little of the original remains.

I'd like to ask that you limit this to Exceptional Friend stories and Sunless Sea islands only. Those are most personal to each writer. And, inspired by this thread, we'll be doing credits on each EF story now, so it's always clear who has contributed. smile

I'm glad you mentioned the story because I've been so unable to find anything about it I started having doubts it existed! And I played the damn thing! I think?! It not available as an exceptional story, I do remember quite enjoying it.

I think. Bloody irrigo.

I've had difficulties to find anything related to the EF stories as well. I don't know why but I thought there would be some kind of list of these stories, hahaha ; since there was none, this thread was a good opportunity to ask about it. It was a great story, very sensible, that's why I wanted to know if the writer created anything else. You certainly enjoyed it ! ;')

Cut with Moonlight was September's EF story, so perhaps it will be re-released soon.

Meg also did the isle of cats according to her website. And Richard wrote some more stuff like specific officers if you look at his website.

Isle of Cats credit added, Nitebrite. But since Hannah asked me to limit to Sunless Sea Islands, I will hold off on crediting for officers unless Hannah clarifies differently.


As an aside to other comments here, I agree that Cut With Moonlight was a very good story, and I have been keeping some Touched on my character on the off chance some new option opens up with it. (I was hoping for a Hallowmas opportunity, but no such luck.)

Okay, as long as I was not the only one doing this...

I most definitely recommend googling some of these authors if you like their work, since several of them have written/designed/contributed to other games, short stories, narrative experiments, etc. Exercise motivators, too. And many are quite quite good.

Emily Short's blog, in particular, is how I found Fallen London in the first place. I thought I had played more of her work, but I've only dabbled in (and not completed) some of her more traditional Interactive Fiction games. I do think First Draft of the Revolution might appeal to players of Fallen London though!

Thank you, Parelle.

If Hannah or others from FBG see this and okay it, I would happily link the authors' nams to their own sites with other works.

April's story added to the credits.

Would people like me to indicate what stories are part of a season or no?

Oh that island is so well done. I can barely put into words -- and badly even at that -- how much I love/hate that story. It is absolutely horrific, in a good way ... or maybe a bad way, a wrong way . .. .

I think we all know what I mean.
