Delicious Friends,


  • Let these pretentious graphemes show you details about my own being.

    The name which circulates in the circle of my acquaintances is the one of Edlaine Saphburg, or better the Promethean Neologist.

    It is quite the octamestral recurrence, since i fell in this tortorous Kingdom, (or, some less than wise person says, -sailed-).

    My own person has a deep affection for literature, symbols (in particular, the Celestial Language), Neathy culture and its typical jargon.
    And, in particular, the Seeking of the Name - even if it is not a Seeker, such creature has the ambition in documenting such research.


    Voices say that i am nothing more than a logorrheic puppet whose strings are held by a 20 something (or 30 and less than something) quirky student of the semantic of numbers - but legends are just legends, and a proper individual should have a uncareful approach about them.

    Yours Deeply,

    Mizr Edlaine Saphburg

    Hullo. I am new here, and seeking to break my previous solitude in order to see more of London. I'm happy to receive any sort of social action.

    Evening fellow inhabitants of Fallen London,

    I am completely new to this type of city and still a little at a loss.
    Afraid to unlock more places, since there are still soo many things I haven't done in the starting area.
    I came here to try and find some friends for the social actions in my lodgings, but the topics in the 'Enlist other players' section are all kinda weird, I don't see any add players threads, only some strange talk?

    Welcome, BobMaster! Disorientation is a common experience for new arrivals in Fallen London. It's probably the strange constellations or the twisted streets or something. And social actions are being reformed right now, which must make the talk in the Mandrake even more confusing.

    Maybe if you could tell us which actions you're interested in? There are lots of helpful people here, so you'll probably get invited to a bunch of them.

    So I need to find friends for specific storylets?
    Can't I just build up a friend list and use them for the storylets in my lodgings ?
    And I can't add my facebook account, it keeps redirecting me to some error popup.

    I am looking for Confident smiles, and I have a nightmare and scandal.
    Then I believe I need to meet someone for coffee, help lay rumours to rest and find someone who doesn't mind being duped.
    Not sure what sending a calling card exactly does.

    I suspect you'll have received a flurry of calling cards by now, but to answer the question - yes, you do indeed build up a friend list and pick from that list wherever you want to.

    Before you can add someone to the list, you need to know their name. My character's name is "Mr Puckeridge" for example (or I've got another lower-level one called "Inspector Hound", though he doesn't come out all that often).

    To use that knowledge: try to invite someone for coffee, and click on the link which says "Manage your contacts list". Then over on the right, in the box which says "Enter username", type (for example) "Mr Puckeridge" and click "Add contact". This doesn't actually do anything - I don't have to accept, and won't even know that you've added me - but I'll now appear on the list of people you can invite, not just for coffee but for all the other things as well.

    And if you accept an invitation from someone else, they'll be added to your contact list automatically.

    All the best
    Richard

    Not that many calling cards yet, people might be asleep.
    The fog is starting to clear, I'm sure all will be clear soon.

    Inviting you now, thank you for the explanation.
    Also made a post in the appropriate topic.

    [EDIT]: I figured out the invite in opportunity cards is for new players.

    A marvelous greetings and salutations, fellow Residents of Fallen London and other Individuals of Note.

    I am a long term member of the city though something of a recluse. Having become a person of some importance months ago I feel it wise to reach out to the community at large and to better understand the full tastes of what the city has to offer.

    Namely, I have no friends who wish to play and would love to make some new friends. Clear ones of Good Taste.

    Best regards,
    Ispizua

    At some point in some time I went into a Honey parlor. When I awoke from the dream I found rats had taken over my lodgings and all the , ahem, ladies and gentlemen and in betweens I had known are long gone. Cue tiny violins.

    Hello, hello. I fidgeted about with the FL for a bit but deleted in a pique of, not sure what sort of pique only that it was fueled by a Riesling. Anyhow, I never advenced much but now I am back ad joining the forums as that is a way to do things when a game is descibed as social.

    Good Evening,

    I am currently acting as one Torva Nex, a lethal and sagacious lady (and never mind that I had to research the word sagacious, thank you). She is an interesting creature living an interesting life in an interesting world, unlike the lady behind the screen. Pay her no mind. She is quite boring by comparison.

    I have been playing Torva for a bit more than a month, and am interested in learning more about the social aspects of Fallen London. Inquiries are welcome.

    Good day!

    I'm a relatively new player (joined almost a month ago), but I've already fallen in love with Fallen London. It's the perfect game for me - the storytelling and opportunities are simply marvelous! My character is a predominantly shadowy lady who's also very watchful and persuasive and quite dangerous to boot. She's closest to the Bohemians as she's somewhat of a hedonist, but she's also fascinated by the Devils (especially the Quiet Deviless), interested in the Great Game (currently working for the Cheesemonger) and trying to figure out more about the Bazaar and the Masters. She's still new to the wonders of Fallen London, though, so she won't mind having someone to show her around a bit and point her in the direction of things she might have missed. The person behind her is a teacher and a freelance translator of books who's interested in a big number of things among which are books, music, psychology, mythology, languages (love all the delicious words one can stumble upon in Fallen London!), photography and postcrossing. Both player and FL character are lesbian and would prefer to communicate with individuals who do not find that offensive or wrong if at all possible. Before I forget - Happy New Year, folks!

    Hi, I've been playing Fallen London for a few weeks now after getting stuck in Black Crown. Would be happy to engage in various social actions but please don't dupe me (yet).

    She has been dancing all evening for the New Year revellers, collecting coins and promises as she worked.


  • Now she has retired for some brief respite, but do not believe she has stopped working. If you don't pay attention, she may steal your purse. If you do pay attention, she may steal your heart.

    Do not be shy, though. None of this is malice, just survival. And she is always good to her friends.

    I have made a terrible oversight. Though I have been playing for many years (since, um, 2010? Possibly? maybe even 2009? I forget.) I don't believe I've ever properly introduced myself! In the world outside of the 'Neath (I hesitate to call it the "real world" as I often find stories full of just as much reality, just of a different kind) I am a 31 year old woman from New Zealand.
    I love stories of all kinds, and words, and learning new things, and, ironically, suffer from mental maladies that make this extremely difficult for me. *shrugs* Such is life. "Try again, Fail again, Fail better" as they say :p (Actually, it was the company name that first endeared me to Fallen London, or Echo Bazaar as it was when I started, and enticed me, along with a glowing JayIsGames review, to check it out. ♥)

    In the Neath, Inky Petrel is a curious (in both senses of the word) person of indistinct gender, they share my own love of KNOWING, and so are often compelled to follow a course that is...not safe, but that will lead them to greater understanding (and more delicious story!). They can be charming, They can be very very dangerous. As they have been embraced by, and have embraced, the Neath they have become...less kind. But they are not, at heart, cruel. Their Ambition is to discover the dark secrets that surround the murder of their brother. They are getting closer, but a trip across the Zee has left them with more questions than when they started.
