As I settled in to do my Piscine Research as part of my lab, I came to the realization that, d___, is Fallen London really the only game I know of where you can traumatize a goldfish? At least, explicitly?

That got me to thinking of other rare sentences that come about from FL, such as it being the only game where you can breed two goats literally from Hell in order to get a better class of Hell Goat.

But of course, my genius can only think of so many examples, so I would love to hear of any examples you delicious friends have thought of or come to think of.

like the death-barge of a renegade pharaoh

... to name just a few words and expressions I would certainly never have picked up anywhere else. And of course, that most important of life lessons:

You know, when you frame it that way, it makes me look like a dashed idiot for having spent more than a decade playing Fallen London.

Rare sentences? Having a lapse of memory, I strolled over to Mrs. Plenty's Carnival, where I encountered this choice sentence about the Rubbery Specimen in the Most Educational Anatomy Exhibition:

"What SPONGY HORRORS await beneath the FLIMSY CONCEALMENT of CIVILISED CLOTHING? EXAMINE the BONELESS WRITHING in pursuit of INTELLECTUAL BETTERMENT."

"Well, I'm nude, so the server's up."

When the server got really unstable that one time, I think after the outfit lock went in, I encountered genuinely the weirdest bug I've ever seen. When the server was up, I was nude. Even my destiny was unequipped! But every time I tried to put on clothes, the server went down for everyone. So I ended up looking back every so often and refreshing and that's when I uttered that line.

The Discord enjoyed that.

You are left with uncomfortably moist undergarments, but heroism has its price.
