Good evening, fellow denizens of the Neath.

It has been some months since I arrived, but now I feel is the appropriate time for me to introduce myself. Friends, acquaintances, and those I have yet to properly endear myself to may know me by the moniker of Altsen. I must say, this London has captured my curiosity.
Frankly, the opportunities waiting to be made in this city make my blood quite simmering! So much interesting encounters to be had! If I had to say what would be the most exciting, it would indeed be testing my skills and wits in combat amongst members of the Black Ribbon. Feducci was most challenging to win against, while the duel with Vendrick gives me the slightest thoughts of regret, seeing how his story had to end that way.

After a beginning of picking pockets from various denizens of Spite, I pursued a profession as a Campaigner for the Church. In all honesty, that was a mistake on my part. Frankly, it was quite boring! The feckless rabble of 'supporters' didn't help much. Eventually, I would later resign that calling for a more- how would one say- 'active' one. As an Enforcer for the Revolutionaries, my usual day never goes by dully.

Recently, I was introduced to further machinations of the Great Game, with directions towards Wilmot's End. Certainly something to do later on.
Currently, I began my studies towards the Correspondence while spending my days inside the University. The path to becoming a Person of Some Importance is certainly open to me. But right now, I prefer to finish up all of my loose ends and round out my full potential before setting myself on that path.

Good Evening Neathy Citizens,

I have been in the Neath for close to a year now, and I have finally deemed it prudent to introduce myself to the public (what few remain who haven't heard of me). Following a brief stint seeking to serve the authorities in London, I soon came to realise that authority is not what it seems in the dark. My eyes adjusted, if you will, and in the dark I have learned a great many secrets. Wolfstack gave me my opportunity to turn my back on the Masters and now I plot their demise.

Good evening all. I'm a quiet Monster Hunter who has mostly kept to himself and his LBs, but I figured its about time I get social up in here, so Yoello.

If you need A Shattering Force to train you, just send a message saying so.
Will likely accept any social action you need if not busy, even occasionaly loitering. Just warn me if it is a harmful one.

Good evening, all ya'll!

I am a person behind a screen, delivering to you these letters via the magic of the wireless internet connection! In the greater external world I do not go by Hotshot Blackburn, but you can refer me to that here if you need be.

Honestly, not much notable going on here. Joined a few months ago at a friend's encouragement, but I've always been interested in this kind of fictional setting (where there's Weird Stuff going down, but its heavily downplayed and treated more as a highly fanciful 'daily life' kind of thing. Not quite urban fantasy, not magic realism, somewhere...in between?), as well as alternate histories and weird histories and so forth. Not the Victorian England period oddly enough because of my semi-negative experiences with Dickensian London from a young age, but eh. Whatchagonnado.

When not here, I'm mainly studying for classes at the university, working, sleeping, writing, going to gatherings with friends, or hanging with family. Ultimately fairly mundane stuff really, at least for my position I guess. Not complaining though because too much energy and excitement is just...stressful. It's good to detox a while from the occasional jolt.

...that's it! I got nothing else to write.

Good afternoon everyone,

Having fallen in love with Welcome to Nightvale, the free podcast of a small, friendly desert town radio station (do not look at the Hooded Figures or approach the dog park. DO NOT APPROACH THE DOG PARK), I was encouraged to look at Fallen London and I'm so very glad I have. I have been playing for three days now and I don't believe I have ever enjoyed a text based game a tenth as much. I have no idea what's going on, I am stumbling around blindly and I am having so much fun! Between the eldritch abominations reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft works and writing that reminds me of my favourite Consulting Detective, this place is wonderful.

Generally I stay out of game forums and can be somewhat terrible at social interactions however after receiving a Maverick Bloodhound and being unsure if it was going to try to kill me or not I posted on the Young Turks thread and immediately got a flood of information, advice and reassurance. Lovely people have already sent me gifts and I helped someone with their nightmares. Unlike in so many games, the social angle does not feel forced to me.

I am very pleased to be here and to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you all,

Sincerely,
Lethe

Good evening my dear friends! I am the Artful Gentleman and have just arrived in this intriguing city. I must say that so far I am quite taken with this place and plan on spending as much time as I can here. I am a poet by trade, but I have other skills that might be useful to some. Feel free to ask me anything you wish!

Your humble servant,
The Artful Gentleman

Goodness. I ended up creating an entirely new thread to introduce myself when it turns out that there is a perfectly good thread for it right here. I do apologize for the . . . clutter.

Greetings, Fellow Fallen, and good evening to you. I call myself "FerroMancer", and as we've just met, I'll restrain myself from boring you with its origins today. I've been in Fallen London for roughly two years now. I'm at 200 in Watchful and Shadowy (I specialized as an "Extraordinary Mind" - call it Ego, if you will), and have 191 in both Dangerous and Persuasive. I'm tipping 200 in my Connections with three or four groups right now. I'm working on my second Overgoat, and I'm working on a 5-card suite. For my employ, I am a Correspondent.

Thank you for the feedback that I have gotten already, pointing me towards this specific thread and the links to further myself. I look forward to our continued interactions.

Evening! I've been messing about in the Neath for about a year now? Probably.I figured it was time to actually say hello! I'm a botanist and writer on the side, and despite what my rivals would tell you I'm not afraid of mushrooms in the slightest. I go by either Zytican or Galena, and you can usually find me in my suite at the royal beth, where I reside for non mushroom related reasons.

Good evening fine citizens!

I am simply known as Rahov....yes yes i know its a mononym i'm sorry for that but i felt it was easier to use that,throw off the chains of the past and all that.I made my way to London a little over a year ago from D-bl-n,I-e--nd that is.

I'd go more in-depth about things but sadly that god forsaken irrigo has left its mark at this point, the joys of Midnighter...hood. So before i prattle on about nothing i'll simply say its a pleasure to meet everyone and if anybody needs an extra pair of hands or eyes or knife simply drop me a note.

Good night.

Good evening all, Fancypants is the name. It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance.

In this town nothing is quite as it seems and the right information here and there can make a world of difference. I'm here to offer the right information, in exchange for perhaps some information of your own. If you're interested in working together then feel free to stop by my office, just ask for Captain Fancypants.

Hello, hello! Please call me DT - it's my online moniker, and it feels odd to go about with another name these days.

I first played Fallen London a few years ago, before much of the polishing of the game happened, and when I returned in early December I decided to start over fresh with a brand new character, my selfish little Parisian-born thief Aliénor. I do a lot of rambling about her character development (and assorted other writing projects) on my tumblr. I finally got around to signing up here on the forum today, so I'll be poking around quite a bit.

As a writer and poet, Fallen London is a goldmine of learning how to properly set up and establish lore, tone and characters!
My current project, Kingdom of the Worms, draws a lot of inspiration from Fallen London's approach and I'm keenly interested to hear everyone's educated opinions on FL's lore.
