Today we are unlocking some much-requested new stories for high level players!


Your Own University Lab


Perhaps you are ready for your own Laboratory. There are many studies you can do best with equipment. And obedient students.


Hire assistants, research new objects and train students! A significant new area in Fallen London!


Visible to anyone who is a Person of Some Importance, your lab is particularly designed with high level Watchful players in mind.


Parabolan Base Camp


No matter how often you walk this way, it is always at least a little different. Vines grasp you by the arm.


Hunt strange and mysterious beasts; discover the moonlit chessboard and interfere in matters of the Great Game; visit the Waswood.


Glassmen will be able to enter the base camp via the Honey-dens of Veilgarden; all players will be able to access it via their university lab.


These stories will become available across the day. We hope you have fun discovering their potential, and that of the continued updates to Fallen London in celebration of its tenth birthday.

One of the Lab investigations is the formula for rail steel. I'm currently engaged in prolonged activity and cannot search for myself, so: is there any source of the sample already in the game, or this is a stub for upcoming content?
Yes, I know about plans for railroad construction later on, but I'm only asking whether this particular project is already available or not.

Lots of new stuff so far, and some more teasing of future unlocks. I'm currently looking for the Storm Bird needed for one of the new research subjects, but I haven't encountered it yet. The Dome of Scales and Viric Jungle are still locked with the requirement for it to be April 8 and I'm suspecting it is in there somewhere. Is this intended to still be locked?

I find it humorous that making Perfumed Gunpowder requires 40 piles of space bat droppings (that or actual waste produced by the Bazaar itself.)

For the Storm-Bird, you want to raise Nightmares to 8 while in Parabola to encounter it for the first time.

The Dome of Scales and Viric Jungle will be released, but the scale of the content means that the update is staggered - not everything will go live at once. It's safe to expect them in the next few hours.

I probably won't be able to access the Viric Jungle at all. mostly because I missed out on this years Feast Content completely so I don't have the Shared Phantasie OR a Trance Dream.

To quote Last Action Hero, it was a complete and utter balls up.

I am noticing a decent amount of usage of a totally new mechanic that didn't exist before, which is the ability to change the *value cap* for a stat. Like how Favors are capped at 7, and main stats are capped at 200. This is probably related to the fact that such caps are now actually visible.

One line from one of the playbills a few months back mentioned "Reach new and giddy heights of skill and notoriety!" I'm wondering if we'll actually see cap increases on main stats or other things.

Nah. Gameplay balance issues, ya know. For one, the "A Visit" is already so valuable.

There’s an option in hiring staff for the lab that’s unique to Nemesis.

WHOOOO. Is it for the Knifework part? Please confirm.
UPDATE: The lab has to be advanced a little before this option appears, it seems?

The Bone Market appears to have different possible cards based on having Bizarre/Dreaded/Respectable zero or non-zero, as well as at least one option requiring some level of Respectable while having zero in Dreaded/Bizarre simultaneously.
An extra slot for a BDR outfit has been requested for years so I'm a bit disappointed that these mechanics are used so heavily without any proper UI support for it. Especially on mobile it's a giant pain to go through each slot and click every item individually to bring up its stats to find the right one.

If you still have your coins from the mysteries, there’s an option on the Numismatrix card to ask her about it.

On a related note, one can now acquire companions with significant negative BDR stats.
