Starting Over? Towards the Canal & Beyond Messages in this topic - RSS

So I've been away from Fallen London for a few years. Maybe it was the lack of Ambition content, maybe it was how the Tiger Court content seemed a monotonous grind, or maybe it was how I (in my own eyes) royally botched the Last Constable storyline. Despite being a magnanimous character who fought against the Soul Trade and has done some good, I can't help but feel that my character is also weighed down by a great many evils he has done in the past while playing. And that's not a bad thing necessarily, given that Fallen London is a place of moral ambiguity where to survive and thrive one must be willing to do questionable things.

After returning to the game last week, I began hunting plated seals at Zee (in a roundabout way to farm Phosphorescent Scarabs) and came upon the following card below:
https://fallenlondon.fandom.com/wiki/Toward_the_Canal

This intrigued me. I do have alts that I could revive and continue playing but the thought of starting over on my main character (Owen Wulf) has its own appeal. This option is actually very reminiscent of the Sunless Sea option allowing you to retire your own character. But what would I be giving up if I took this as an option or any other similar choices?

- Would I get to reuse my purchased Fate Content?
- Would I still be a member of the Temple Club, a Silver Tree Backer Reward?
- How much would I restart in terms of skills and resources?

This content hasn't been released yet as I understand it so for the next few months I'll likely be kept waiting for the answers. But is there another forum or even a Failbetter post explaining their future plans on this?

Not going to lie, the ups and downs my real life has been having there would certainly be something cathartic about restarting a character I began back in College and giving him the proper rest he deserves after years of neglect. Of course, that could just be me being sentimental. What do you think?

There isn't an explanation of what that is going to entail. But judging from the locks/unlocks you should be able to keep items at least.

I assume ambition items will play some part in the Meet Your End options, as well as any high level items.

What is your Ambition, by the way?

To Bag a Legend. Currently mucking about trying to make the final confrontation happen. Not gonna lie, would have been easier if I'd stayed on top of new content for the past year or so....


Really. I’m finding the new content a major distraction from proceeding with my Ambition (Nemesis. Need. Knives.)

Bag a Legend. There are a variety of ways it can end, like the other ambitions.
