Good day,

I am a returning player after taking a hiatus of a few years, though I never got super into the game. However, I am now hooked back into it and working my way to A Person of Some Importance. Open to any social interactions. My character, William Chapman Jones, is an auspicious and stoic intellectual, quietly collecting secrets and information in an attempt to accumulate knowledge and well-known writer.

Good evening delicious friends! I am also a returning player of a few years… been figuring out where am at… send me some calling cards if you want as I am still low on influence. Am a Midnighter if it helps. Cheers!

Hello, everyone. I've been playing for a while now, and I'm finally getting on these forums. I'm a Silverer, currently working my way through the end of the Railway content, and enjoying learning all the secrets and knowledge of the Neath that I can find.

Good evening Delicious Gentlebeings one and all. I've been playing for about a month and am very hooked.

Dr Alethea Blueleg is a dauntless bluestocking, pursuing the Vake for science. She affects gentlemen’s attire, in part for practicality and in part to attract the kind of ladies who are attracted by that kind of thing. (Maybe Miranda...) She is interested in academic pursuits of all kinds, and in hunting beasts - naturally for reasons of study, or as museum specimens, but she's not averse to a good fight. Bagging the big game, you know, although currently she is making a living as a lowly ratcatcher. She's recently been forced into society and the great game, as one must make such connections to obtain a university laboratory or a ship. The Empress seems to have mysteriously taken her for some kind of artist. How peculiar

Miranda Podoserpula is a lesser light (not an exceptional friend), a would-be light-fingered Bohemian jewel-thief, currently a pickpocket . She is oddly fascinated by Dr Blueleg (so dapper%21), but far from exclusive. She likes pretty clothes, pretty jewels, pretty art, pretty words, pretty people of any gender or peculiarity, and is quite determined to get to court. Because if you want to steal jewels, you have to get to where the jewels are

Both are open to friendships, though Dr Blueleg is more likely to reciprocate.

And yes, I am planning on marrying myself, which is why I created Miranda. I’m a wee bit wary of internet social interactions that go beyond the casual.

Send me anything you like. Be decent, though. Bad stuff is fine if you attach a warning.

Good Evening Delicious Friends!

I've been playing for about a year now on two alts, though one of them - Kitara - I had started and abandoned much earlier. I think this is one of the few games I've played which genuinely encouraged role-playing, not just in the sense of getting you to make moves based on what you think your character would do, but in terms of challenging your initial ideas about the character based on subsequent events.

When I started my second account I had the idea that they would be the "bad" alt - a snobbish imperialist and thief, compared to my serious Vake hunting revolutionary main. Two ambitions later and I find the sentimental Mercy a more sympathetic figure, while Kitara is an untrustworthy nihilist. Yet it all felt very organic.

Greetings, friends,

I've been playing Fallen London for three weeks now. I made an account just to download the stories for Sunless Sea, then decided to play FL just enough to get that box you can send to your zee caption in SS, but turns out this game is pretty fun too. As a bonus, it fills me in the lore of the Neath, and I am enjoying SS more than earlier.

My character is a Portuguese ex-scrivener who came to London out of curiosity about the state of its society a few decades after the Fall. He's not the only one that's curious about it: turns out news about London sell well outside of Great Britain. He then came to London planning to earn a living writing stories for newspapers of the continent. Things are changing, though.

I'm still trying to find the right tone to the occasional letters I write. I really liked a letter I sent yesterday (although I had to split it in two letters), though, so I might be getting better at it.

Good afternoon (it is afternoon where I am located at the moment) dear Londoners!

My name is Rakel, I am an intellectual historian (intellectual history is the study of science in history) who has been playing FL and SS (both of them) for quite a few years now. I enjoy lore and roleplaying as well as real-world equivalents and references in fiction. If you want to discuss something just hit me up.

Lady Krakel of the Fifth Decent is a businesswoman, turned noble, turned scientist and professor, turned revolutionary/player of the Great Game. She descended to London with her family fleeing anti-semitism and political rivals and started engaging in the amber-trade. When her parents disappeared she took over the family business. Her immense wealth made her a friend of the upper crust, and she later got into the secret order of the Fifth Decent. There she started to learn the deeper secrets of the Bazaar, Masters, and Neath which she perused at Benthic College first studying the REDACTED and later Crytotheology. This deeper understanding of the going-ons in Fallen London brought her to, let's say, people less respectable than her merchant or noble friends.

Lady Krakel likes to take on students of the Language of the Heavens, sending them research in form of Flame-proof Missives. She also likes to discuss the general politics of the Neath over a cup at Beatrices.

I hope we meet soon, perhaps at a dimly lit back street somewhere?

A hardy hello to all.

It has been some time since I visited FL. My last visit ended with me going North, a place from with one does not return. So I've put on a fresh face and set myself up in a smoky flophouse to investigate the changes that have occurred in my long absence. You will find me at Lorelu. Surface obligations keep me busy, so my visits are sporadic.

Ahoy, me hearties! I be an old zalt upon these waters, though me current guise be fresh. Thought I'd stop by and pay me respects. I'm currently digging neath the Blind Helmsman and having a grand old time! It warms this old zailor's heart to be working alongside the community towards a common goal!

Greetings,

I am very new to the game. I was looking for something to play and saw this game recommended on a list of good games. I am quite lost and unsure of what I am doing but, perhaps, that is a normal for a first time player in the beginning.
