That limit was set for performance reasons. Too many contacts and social actions might timeout while loading. So this is really asking for unknown (and potentially impossible) optimalizations.

12 February


- Increased the Casing gain from the Gentleman Smuggler’s card to +8 (was +5)
- Exiting the Wellspring of Moulin through the mirror should now correctly trigger the ‘Viric Fades’ living story.
- Epistolary:
- Writing letters that can increase main attributes no longer requires Free Evenings. Decreased the Corresponding… gain from mailing those letters.
- Reading those letters no longer requires Free Evenings. Instead, they will begin giving diminishing returns after four attribute increases each TTH cycle, bottoming out at around 20% of their original effectiveness after reading eight letters.
- A Scholar of the Correspondence gains are now limited by your current level and base Watchful.
- Reading Shared Case Notes and Collections of Licentious Gossip now grants a relevant second chance item (Sudden Insight or Confident Smile)
- Reduced the minimum Persuasive to send Licentious Missives to 80 (was 160).
- Helicon House options have been added for the Notorious Art Dealer, Gentleman Smuggler, and Philosophically perfect Partnership.
- Preserved Surface Blooms may be sold for 250 pennies at the Bazaar.
- A Dream of Arbor gated at 20 Persuasive to prevent it being encountered at the very beginning of Fallen London play
- We’ve closed the Crooked Cross Viric Dream for the Bishop of Southwark this year, while we reassess it in context and in light of how our treatment of the Crooked Cross profession has changed in more recent content.

  • London opportunity deck:
    • Greatly uptuned the EV of feeding secrets to your Bifurcated Owl
    • Added branches that allow players to get rid of the Corresponding Ocelot, Ocular Toadbeast, and Slavering Dream-Hound to their respective cards.
    • City Vices: Orthographic Infection: The first branch now rewards Appalling Secrets that scale with high base Watchful (Tapering off around 200). The failure branch also has a similarly enhanced effect on Watchful itself. This is a large increase in EV.
    • The cards ‘Ask the Sardonic Music-Hall Singer to Help’ and ‘Help the Sardonic Music-Hall Singer’ will no longer appear for players above 200 Persuasive.
  • Helicon House:
    • ‘Keep a close eye on everyone present’ is now less effective at generating Casing… early in the evening.
    • ‘Nab a supply of Incorruptible Biscuits on your way out': Now gives 4 biscuits and a varying amount of Venison Marrow with mean ≈ 5. (Was deterministically 5 and 4)
  • Clay Highwayman Larcenies: Slightly downtuned the EV on ‘medium’ larcenies. Changed random roll implementation so more results should be possible.
  • Fixed issue where ‘Enlighten the Magistracy of the Evenlode’ was not appearing.
  • Epistolary: Added two new Dangerous and Shadowy missive types.
  • The Rose Giveth Its Verses To Devils and Also to You and other qualities with level descriptions have their names displayed correctly in tooltips where previously only their level descriptions appeared.
  • Autofire (red-bordered) cards' tooltips now contain a warning for screen readers that the card will take effect immediately when played.
  • The “Try again” button is now available when using items in the Upper River (if you are eligible to do so).
  • The bug (most reported in The Lab), where expressions that reference other qualities do not take into account the qualities' modifiers when they should have, is now fixed.
  • “Name a pet” now correctly recognises numerals as valid characters.
  • Those who missed out on a Censored Census at this year's Advent Calendar can now purchase one in the Bazaar Sidestreets under the Walk Down Blackfinger Street storylet
  • Running the Roof-tops with the Urchins melancholy reduction is no longer capped if your Melancholy is higher than 4
  • Revised date on Meeting Your End teaser content from ‘late 2020’, which was clearly not accurate
  • It now costs fewer Glass Gazettes to improve your chances in a Parabolan search or hunt.

Are these branches to get rid of them entirely, or to loan them out like the various other transports/comforts/etc?

I don't know the answer,but all of those creatures were already easy to get rid of entirely. Adding an option to get rid of the card but not the creature makes much more sense.

My toad got me 1 Vital Intelligence and a bunch of compromising documents. Unfortunately, I didn't think to write down exact amounts or cash value, so don't know which is more.

But I do know that now it is trivial to get VI in end-game.

Won't sell it's comrades in birth unless asked really nicely, since I need them both and it's a pain the ass to get them back.

  • You've lost 1 x Slavering Dream-Hound (new total 0).
  • You've gained 50 x Memory of Light (new total 739).
  • You've gained 1 x Justificande Coin (new total 22).

or 25e + a coin (don't know how to value that)
  • You've lost 1 x Corresponding Ocelot (new total 0).
  • You've gained 50 x Correspondence Plaque (new total 397).
  • You've gained 1 x Volume of Collated Research (new total 294).

or 27.5e.

Bad deals all round it seems.

Aaaaand Laboratory grind nerfed. 28 research per action on 10 Red Science for Theorem. People reported 31/11 Kataleptic Toxicology for Attar. There is some effect, but less linear, it seems

For AoRS looks like 8 + 2xLevel. A very serious nerf. Is it mentioned in the patch notes anywhere?..

Sigh. Every time I find a good grind to sink actions in I buy a subscription. Every time they nerf that grind I cancel my subscription because finding something worthwhile to spend 30 actions on is too tedious.

There’s already a discussion on wiki. Slightly more complex formula that incorporates diminishing returns, not a simple linear equation.

Good day to everyone.
I just came here to say it would be great to have an option to grind Surveys of Neath's Bones in bulk.
I mean, a single Experiment in your lab gives 25 Surveys. Now, this is quite enough if all you want is to use options on cards (though this is only true for cards driven in London; the Ealing Gardens one demands 15 Surveys each time). You need about a hundred or maybe two for an expedition to Bullbone if you want to return with a full bag of Horned Skulls. You need 50 or 75 or 150 or 175 to sponsor a palaeontological dig.
This means that every time you want to do something worthwile, you need to do that experiment for at least two times, and probably more.
It would be nice to have a lengthier experiment that would produce, say, 100 Surveys a time. Maybe even more, they are constantly needed anyway. It would not affect the balance much, and where it does (those two extra actions to start and finish the experiment), it can easily be compensated by adjusting the amount of research needed accordingly. It would just make the process less irritating.
Thank you. I hope you consider it.

  • Using advanced skills on Direct your own Research is now adjusted to a new payout formula so that the research given is more in line with the rest of the lab, and allows for future developments of Red Science and other advanced skills.
  • Firing on the Big Rat now correctly resets Running Battle…
