Good evening, all! bluetulip47 here as well as in-character. I've been playing since autumn of 2010, though I've taken two lengthy absences. On the Surface, I do things relating to computers and language.

Hello all and good evening if it is evening where you are. I started FL about two years ago, but I did not become active until very recently. And now I am thoroughly and utterly addicted.

I enjoy writing stories and eyeballs. Seek me (Jaime) out if you'd like to do a little story or some such!



  • Quick edit! I should probably clarify that my character's name is Jaime. My actual name is Vanessa. Yes. That is all. Hrm.

    Why, hello, fellow fiends!

    I, regrettably, forgot what my first FL account was, so this is my second name but first introduction. Who says you can't have a fresh start, eh?

    So, without further ado, I'm Teapot. Tarnished Teapot, to be exact. I understand that might be a dreadfully strange name to some but it works well enough for myself. I'm a rather Watchful and Dangerous sort of lady, always on the look out for some friendly souls who want to have a lovely chat or a nice stroll down to The Singing Mandrake.

    So, with that, feel free to add me and here's to seeing you around the city!

    Greetings, fellow Londoners ! A good evening to you all !

    I believe some kind of... introduction is in order? I wouldn't want anyone to think that what I'm doing is breaking and entering -- I've heard New Newgate has an awful chill at this time of the year. And I'd be glad to get to know you fine folk.


    [I'm Marasquine -- please call me Mara. In the the other world, the one where I'm sure London is still firmly set on the Surface, I'm a French student, currently researching a field that a whole three people have heard of. I have a tendency to wild, starry-eyed enthusiasm and a deeply-seated love for music of all sorts. I enjoy good stories quite a bit.]

    Lately I go as Mara D. Mare, owner of a superfluous initial and a pet lizard. Since I've escaped from prison, I'm doing my best to reclaim some kind of reputation... Who knew becoming an inquirer was the best way to go? I've been known to be as dangerous as a startled mouse, but fairly keen-eyed, and able to surprising amounts of persuasion when circumstances require it ; perhaps it was just the kind of job I needed. My net is slowly expanding upon this crawly city -- and when I'm done, if anyone is watching you, chances are I'll be watching them.
    Bits and pieces start falling into place. Mysteries clear up, leading way to even bigger mysteries. It's a pretty novel experience ; seen that way, the world is clear, and right, and reassuring. Ready to be seized. Now if only those dreams would leave me alone...

    When I'm not on a case, I like to relax as the Singing Mandrake. When it doesn't involve murder victims or missing devils, I'm actually quite an enjoyable company. Join me there, would you? I always got some good absinthe lying around. And plenty of tales -- some better than others.
    Speaking of which, did you know the one about the Vicar who ---...


    [That's about all, I guess. I've been in the game since... yesterday, and I'm already enthralled by what I can see. I've been browsing the forums some time ago, and I just wanted to tell you how flabbergasted I've been made by some of you people's dedication and proficiency. This is fantastic. Creating and expanding so much and so well upon the game's lore is something that takes all kinds of gifts.
    I'm looking forward to meeting you all ! Please forgive my faulty English and inexperience ; and here's to many future adventures!
    Cheers!]

    Fine ladies and gentlemen of the Neath,

    It pains to me to confess to such degenerate beginnings, but just days past I found myself cornered in the ghastly going-ons of Newgate Prison. Framed, I tell you! Fortunately it was immediately realised that a person of my esteem belonged not within a thousand yards of such despicable depths as that gaol cell and my release was secured forthwith. Regrettably, my reputation was tarnished by such unfortunate circumstance and I now find myself languishing in an attic room. An attic! Of all places! I wonder if this lamentable experience has affected not only my reputation but alas, also my mind, as I find my dreams increasingly filled with shadowy visions of bloody revenge. Ah, but I babble on and share superfluous details. I hope my running-ons have not disturbed you. I'm perfectly sane, I assure you. Well, fairly certain... in the main.

    Howdy,

    I've survived the Neath for about a week and a day, a friend pulled me from the Surface and having been rustling jimmies ever since with my alter ego. When not causing a ruckus, I spend most of the time working with food and the rest on one of my many hobbies. I can also be found praying to the gods of Iron at the local gym.

    It's fine calling me after my other persona, Gaspar.

    Bonjour!

  • I've stayed in the Neath a few times now, on and off over the past few years - and golly, it's awfully good, isn't it? It is with mild embarrassment that I admit that the thought of a forum had not even crossed my mind, and the stats of others have certainly made me reevaluate my (perhaps, I am beginning to realise, excessively) casual gaming style, but I'm glad I finally stumbled on this pseudo-Victorian hub. I hadn't realised there was such a positive and supportive community linked to the whole Failbetter thingummybob. More fool me, I suppose. Cheers!

    A pleasant evening to you all.

    I go by Tate, sent to New Newgate to atone for my sins. Now I seek the righteous hand of the Lord, in all his justice and mercy. I look forward to proving my worth and seeing justice done.

    [I'm Kyle, but you can call me Tate or Lord Tate if you wish. Just got back into FL recently after several previous sojourns into it, and I'm really excited to see all the new content and finally become a person of some importance, as well as look around and possibly get involved with all the stories everyone is cooking up~]

    Good evening! Or good morning, as you prefer.


  • I've just discovered Fallen London but am thoroughly captivated so far. My name there is also SarahTheEntwife, but at some point I hope to change it to something a bit more thematic. I'm currently a figure of shadowy and uncertain gender confusedly stumbling about the world trying not to get eaten by anything.

    Good evening, ladies and gentlemen... and those other ones.

    My name is Goran, and I have been playing (and thoroughly enjoying) Fallen London since the New Year. My username here is made of the names of two of my FL characters, the second one not being realised yet. English is not my mother tongue, so if I say something unclear or just stupid (I hope not!), you will know where to put the blame. In the real life, I am most attracted by things of watchful and then persuasive nature, and that's why my main character is based upon those qualities.

    This is one of the best gaming communities I've ever seen, probably because of the literary nature of the game, and I feel very excited to be able to take part in it.

    Good evening.

    I go by Peregrinate around here, as well as in-game - I hadn't planned on developing any particular character at first, although I seem to have stumbled backwards into it.

    I've actually been playing for months now, but have only just made an account here. Really, there was no reason not to, since I'd been checking it recently during any 'I'm not sure if this is a bug or just a new feature' moments. So, here I am.

    Hello friends!
    I'm certainly no stranger to London, however it is currently my first time posting on the forums, despite all the useful information the kind folks on here have given me thus far.

    I've finally gotten out of bed and created an account here so I can meet Fallen Londoners from all walks of life.
    Welcome to the other side, delicious friend.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm Ariadne Malone - both here and in-game. I've been reading the forums for a while but have only just decided to bite the bullet and join the community for myself. I've been playing since November and am thoroughly enjoying it so far!

    Outside of the game I like reading, sewing, knitting and baking (and Reddit).

    Hello!

    I am Jen, and I play as Lyudmila. I am coming back to the game with a new account after playing a few years ago (I wasn't able to get into my old account alas, so I am starting over).

    I'm looking forward to getting to know the other denizens and sharing secrets!

    Hello to all of you wonderful ladies, gentlemen, persons of uncertain gender, persons of undisclosed gender, persons of the rubbery persuasion, and eldritch beings from before the dawn of time. Er. Perhaps not that last bit.

    I am William the Marshal. Marshal of what, you ask? Mind your own business, say I! I've been in Fallen London since last October (after certain, ahem, difficulties on the surface, entirely unrelated to myself, which nevertheless necessitated a relocation) but have not been fully a member of the community, so to speak, until now. I enjoy playing the cello and having a false sense of superiority. Oh, and apparently unaccountable long-windedness. Dear me. Please feel free to drop by my Lodgings for tea and a chat. (Disclaimer: Must provide your own tea. If I am not present, also must provide your own conversation.)

    Well met, fellow Fallen Londoners. As it turns out I have not formally introduced myself yet, though I have been trying to get into contact with a few other players through social actions.

    My name is one which feels perhaps inadequate compared to some others. Regardless, I spend most of my time in London practicing the violent arts. Currently, most of my time is taken up finding how to make progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers. I've also got myself a moon league token for the game of knife and candle and am debating how I wanted to go about participating in a duel.

    One might wonder, why would I have decided to leave the shadows, and join the forums with the other Londoners. The truth is, I've always planned to get into contact with others, I just never felt like the opportunity presented itself properly. With me coming a person of some importance, and the desire for making waves present now seemed like the best time possible to meet more acquaintances.

    Any actions and social requests are heartily welcome!
    Along with that I want to accept nightmare requests. I have reasons of course, and I assure you they are purely academic.
