So there are 4 codes in total? A +2BDR among them?
(Of course they don't work on Mozilla for me. I know there are no foxes in Fallen London, save the one, but this vendetta is getting ridiculous).


Yes, and the +2 BDR (it's Respectable, by the way) is handy because none of the other Home Comfort items I'm aware of give more than +1 BDR.



There actually are a couple other +2 BDR Home Comforts now! The Ceremony gave us the first ones last year. This however is the first one available for free.

Happy birthday Fallen London!! And thank you Failbetter for creating such a playful and atmospherically perfect and inclusive game. Thank you for being so generous with free content and regularly adding more free content. Thank you for having a such a helpful support staff. Thank you for building a place I love to explore and for building a place where I’ve found wonderful friends to roleplay with (I’ve done so much creative writing based on Fallen London!). Thank you for being wonderful.

But you've reassured me as to the state of my memory--I *thought* I'd been playing since sometime in 2009, but everyone seems to be counting the anniversary from 2010 so I wasn't sure.
The 2009/2010 thing confused me initially, too, until I realized that we're celebrating Failbetter's anniversary, of course, not Fallen London's.

Fallen London - the game - was put online in late 2009, but Failbetter Games - the company - went public on 11 Jan 2010.


Quite right - we were registered as a company on 11 Jan, 2010. Fallen London's exact go-live date in a format that could be said to be sufficiently similar to its current iteration is a bit murky, so we went with a nice, provable, publicly registered birthday. smile


Happy birthday to us!

My first echo is dated 28 September, 1889, when it was still called Echo Bazaar and the only login was through Twitter.

I'm still astonished that I'm counted amongst the older members; although I took a long 6-year hiatus from FL because I reached content boundary. I came back only 2 years ago with a new character, and finally sent that original, old character NORTH.

Some things I remember from 'back in the day'...

  • Social actions intimidated me greatly, so I played FL strictly "singleplayer". I only got into social actions when I returned from hiatus.
  • There was a time when inventory was much, much more limited. Many common inventory items hadn't been implemented; no categories like 'Nostalgia' or 'Elder'; no side-conversions or up-conversions. So the game economy was completely different and more simplistic back then. I had a note somewhere that in "Mr Wines is holding a sale!" opportunity card, you bought a mystery box for 200 Jade Fragments instead of one Touching Love Story. It was very exciting to see all those new items and categories appear.
  • Getting a 'River in a Box' in my inventory. I never learnt about what it signified, until I came back from hiatus and found the blog post. These quirky fourth-wall-breaking puzzles between Failbetter and the fanbase were a feature of Alexis Kennedy's time here.
  • Originally having only one candle of 10 actions to work with; Exceptional Friendship added the second candle for 20 actions. It's great that candle heights have been doubled now!
  • I have the story quality, "A Veteran of Mr Sacks' Visits 3 - A Veteran of the Visit of 1890". So I was around for Sacksmas 1890 and Feast of the Exceptional Rose 1891. I believe 1891 was the first Feast?
  • I went on hiatus shortly before Exceptional Stories were introduced to EFship.

I even unearthed an alt I'd forgotten about, who like Vegalivia was a participant in Knife-and-Candle -- although I never really played it as social actions intimidated me then.


Thanks for the fantastic stories over the years, and for being such an enduringly fun game!

And it's Happy Birthday from me! I seem to have been here for seven years with a few gaps, long enough that I can remember when the second candle was added. A lot of the people that were old hands when I joined seem to have fallen by the wayside.
