With the advent of the Feast of the Rose, and the introduction of Divorce into the game (at last!), it would seem that some players would benefit from a listing of those willing to explore the more "romantic" options available in the game. With Cecil's permission, I suggest we start a bulletin board at the Starveling Cafe with a list of characters who are interested in possible dating/matrimony schemes. Those who register should provide a link, and state their gender and any gender preferences they might have. What other qualities would it be useful to make public? Perhaps there should be an indication of whether one is looking for dating options (being Seen With another player opens lucrative ways to spend Free Evenings), or possible matrimony. One might also indicate how open he/she/it is to "romantic" role-play messages (or downright carnal ones, if it comes to that). As with the Introduction thread, one might also wish to add as much or as little background on his character as he pleases, to promote interest or just add spice (or humor, if it comes to that). Those who think this idea has merit and possible utility, subscribe your names below.

It occurs that this could also be utilized as a sort of clearing-house for gift exchanges during the Feast, so feel free to use it that way as well.

Pyrodium's summary of points to consider:

1. Who will shoulder the costs? - I remembered Pyro providing the rats (yes rats) for the marriage since he's a POSI and his bride wasn't. I think 50/50 split would be reasonable though for most people. The other can take over the preparations after one is okay with their quota.
2. Will you do Romance RP? - personally, I was a bit awkward here since back then I have no IRL xp about love. I'll honestly ask upfront if we're talking as players vs. as make believe lovers. I'm more open for the former since I prefer keeping the love part IRL . But if you're both game with RP'ing lovers then it's totally fine.
3. Frequency of spouse related social actions - this is probably more gameplay related since it burns Free Evenings but has decent item, Second chance and MW payouts. I think this is something the players must talk about. Will they dedicated 1 or more FE's per week or simply ignore this bonus?
4. How well should you know the other player - I'll weigh my potential relationship with them based on their in-game interactions and forum posts. If a really helpful forum member is available for marriage then I'll ask them first (or their alts) for marriage.
5. Character stories - we should also look if the marriage fits well with the partners' narratives. For example. a Heartless Spirifier might not sit well with a Magnanimous Shepherd.
6. Constant Communication - whether via messages here or through in-game interactions, both parties should alert each other if there are changes IRL that might affect the things that I talked about in the above-mentioned points. This is also needed if one is no longer interested in continuing the marriage.

I'm interested in looking for someone to romance and eventually be wed to. If one felt interested in RPing, whether it be for romantic, carnal, or simple friendly pursuits (or a mixture of them, that's always entertaining), I'd be happy to oblige and quite interested. In fact, perhaps a bit of RP of some sort would be preferred.

Joseph is a male by the game's standards, but we're both fairly neutral towards gender and don't much care for any title in particular, so feel free to call them whatever you like. As for who we pursue, gender or sex don't really play a part into the mix. The person themselves is where the importance lies.

I'd be happy to carry out the dating options, whether they be for RP, cash grinding, or both!

As for Joseph themselves, he's simply interested in lending a hand and having fun while doing it. Well, that and studying dark arts beyond the grasp of human comprehension, but that's more of a hobby really. Expect someone who loves hoarding shiny little bobbles, loves a good story, and overall just having a good time.

    True to my practical-minded and rather mercenary character, navchaa is looking for a marriage of convenience, hopefully with another person of mysterious and indistinct gender. Not particularly interested in romantic or carnal roleplay, but cordial relations of a platonic kind are quite welcome for roleplay.

    Hello, fallen city!

    I offer a marrige of convenience! Well, dating "of conveniance" will also do, but marrige is marrige! Think about the status it gives!

    Me: fierce zee-captatin, honourable academic, monster hunter, master thief and near-legendary-Charisma. In other words: a Neathy Delight.


    You: a renowned beauty of the Neath? An implacable mind (my, what am I saying...)? A daughter of some indecently rich old money clan? I don't know! But be a woman of some note! Be fire-bright! Be nice and sociable! And be on-line from time to time, don't die or shut down your account. And please no tentacles on your face.


    PM or social-action me with a note for negotiation. Me down there: http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Happy~Londoner.

    I'm looking for someone to share my time with.

    I'm quite comfortable with romance of the rp variety and with actions. Atticus tends to be moral, though very curious. He's not a hardliner like that stuffy old Southwark. Gets along splendidly with Fiacre.

    Works as a Glassman and sundry inquisitor for said bishop, and runs an aromatics shop off the bazaar streets.

    He is a man, a southern gentleman from America. He prefers women over men. Do respond. He won't bite, unless asked. And even then several times.

    Hey Mal,

    I just dropped by to say that I appreciate your use of my post to spread the Neathy love.

    For all single Londoners out there, may the Neathy cupids bless your romantic adventures.

    Anyways, Rudolph is a magnanimous, non-POSI of indistinct gender who are quite sympathetic with Rubbery Men and Tomb-colonists. As their player, I'm more open to "player talk" vs roleplay. I'm totally fine with RP'ing in the boards here though. They also might not have enough resources to build a top-Tier marriage given that they're just a couple of months old.

    Myrto, likewise a solitary and mercenary person of mysterious origin and gender, would be very interested in a marriage of convenience. Their mission in the Neath and general lifestyle choices preclude any romantic or otherwise sexual relationships, but an arrangement that mutually benefits both parties would be welcome. Myrto's currently wed to a certain jewel thief for similarly mercenary reasons, but has no particular attachment to this person, other than the occasional diamonds that result from such a relationship.

    While my main is happily married, I have two alts that are currently single and available:

    Vaughan Montblanc: A doctor renowned for his discretion, care, and insight, originally from the wilds of western Canada. He has carefully cultivated a reputation for austerity, partly for the sake of his business, and partly out of genuine remorse for his deeds of the past. He's a man with a dark secret, which is a tough thing to carry alone. But, he will be certain to keep that of any lady as well, if you wish to unburden yourself and have a thing against those who wear cassocks.

    Irene Psmith: Adopted daughter of my main, she's a young, sharp, and decidedly unscrupulous lady. Few are the close connections she makes, and fewer still are permanent. Still, she'd like to have a few more interesting things to do on a free evening, though your secrets will by no means be safe with her. It's all in the Game, you see...


    In general, I'm looking more for RP than player-messaging. If you're interested in a marriage of convenience, you'll have to pitch it in-character (Irene is more likely to be receptive to that sort of thing).

    Good evening, morning, or whatever time of the day you would profess to call it. My main character, Arensen Song is possessed of a taste for fine mysteries and equally fine women, and is currently seeking a marriage. I, for one, am interested in Roleplay, and no doubt Arensen would be delighted for an opportunity for a fine evening or five, followed by romance, and potentially followed by said 'carnal pleasures', and not even necessarily in that order.

    The funny alternative is that a woman did hit on him.... but she was dumb, frail or both.
    (That sounds like my character, except I am not hitting on anyone as of now.)

    Although if he did say yes, I assume whoever that hit on him will promptly become good at fighting out of anger.

    Hello, dear gentlefolk. Chanterelle is a newly-minted Legendary Charisma and is seeking either a romantic partner or a business arrangement--on the condition that any romantic partnership is with a female character. If it is a marriage of convenience, she isn't particular about the gender.

    1. Who will shoulder the costs? - If a PoSI, 50/50. If not yet a PoSI, expect to shoulder the greater part of around 75/25, though I am flexible. This is only so that my protégés and the protégés of another PoSI are treated fairly, where someone without a pupil would have less irons in the fire, so to speak. I am willing to take on someone as both a partner and a protégé at this point in time.
    2. Will you do Romance RP? - Depending. If the other character is female and has chemistry with Chanterelle, yes. I would also go so far as carnal rp, but using some method other than fl's message system. I am not interested in any real-life/ooc dating offers, at least without getting to know the other player well.
    3. Frequency of spouse related social actions - I can and will dedicate at least 1 free evening per week, as well as 1 to each protégé. Any extra will go to whichever character I have the closest relationship with wink
    4. How well should you know the other player - For a marriage of convenience, not an issue. For a romantically involved marriage, I would like there to be a couple of weeks of in-game courtship. I don't need to know the player themselves at all, but if our characters click I'm sure we'll become friends.
    5. Character stories - Chanterelle is eclectic, to say the least. She has strong sympathies for the bandaged and rubbery men, though she mingles well in high society and among devils. She started her author career among bohemians, and still will take a drink with them from time to time, but she prefers a quiet evening of sherry and souls. Loves animals. Soulless, if that matters. She has started to lose her mind a little as she explores the Correspondence, as she intends to move from Author to Correspondent, and can get carried away drinking away the nightmares. Tends to believe in following what she thinks is right, even if it might upset someone (very different than when she arrived in London).
    For the most part, she just feels as though she wears so many masks for so many people that she craves someone she can just be herself around.
    Oh, and she hates revolutionaries, but perhaps one might surprise her.
    6. Constant Communication - I can't promise to check anything here, but I check my fallen london messages daily. I don't require daily ic communication, but please do let me know if you're going to be away from fl, and I will do the same.

    Edit: this thing got really complicated for now.
    Hello gentle beings of neath. I am suhe a male human as far as I know. I want anything I do be fun. then the following are the things I would like. getting wealth from something fun. spending wealth for something hillarious, getting a friend or contact for doing future fun stuff together. I hope you get some idea about me.
    I am inclined to romance and/or wed to a female but indistinct gender always fascinates me so that could happen, too. I am a spriffer and soulles if that would be a deal breaker.

    1. Who will sholder the cost: I would probably like equally contributing but can do most or little if other party has a specific preference. I am not sure how the system works but I usually have at least one protege if that affect anything concerning use of free evenings.
    2. Will you do romance RP: probably, but there should be a predetermined indicator for in-character messages.
    3. Frequency of spouse releated social actions: I would spare at least one free evening plus another ingame option but I am open to in-character RP in another medium that doesnt cost anything besides the players time.
    4 How well should you now the other player: As little or as much is okay for me. I'd be happier if the romancing step was purely in-character and get to know the player if we decide to get married.
    5. Character stories: Suhe has came to Neath out of curiousity and will follow anything that will make him curious and he discovered the wealth and connections are very good means to satisfy his curiousity. He started as poet, journalist and author because he wanted to make his opinions heard but when he discoverd he can become correspondent and learn the secrets of the secrets, he throw it all away because knowledge is everything to him.
    He is known to betray people's trust but there are some trust he will never betray(player trusts, when it is about NPCs he will pick the pragmatic ways. yay metagaming smile ) He likes the devils, tentacled ones and bandaged ones make him curious. society and bohemians are a mean to other ends but he is really good with them and will never turn down a nice drink or conversation.
    6. constant communication: I am online every day an play and check FL more than once per day. sometimes I forget to check forums but it will never be more than a few days before I check here.

    A modest man looking for a stable and peaceful relation in these troubled times. RP-ing is not a problem, though there is categorically obsession over it. Liberal atmosphere. I respond to all requests and try to help as soon as possible (within a few days or a week at most).

    If unexpected circumstances intervene, it will be brought to notice. Fallen London is not something I keep busy with too much lately, started it about in 2011. The Gothic writing, the dark mood engimatically keeps me around.
