Friends, Gentlemen, Creatures of the unknown. I inform you that, in order to be a member of good Societal standing, I shall refrain from such habits as skulking and loitering suspiciously around London. I certainly do not look down upon those of you that wish to engage in such exploits, and certainly would not refrain my ear if invited to hear of what rumours the night holds over a game of chess or cup of coffee. But I reserve my skullduggery for the detection of the undesirable element and the aid of others, and shall therefore keep it so.

In short, if you wish a partner to linger in the shadows of London's night, I recomend you send invitation elsewhere.
-L

Dear Sir L

 

I do respect your decision. I wonder, however, if you do not mind being the subject of gossiping everywhere, when seen during some of your exploits?

 

Surely the ability to walk unseen can be vital during numerous occasions?

 

I beg to remain, Sir, your most humble and obedient servant,

-C

Heh.

But yes, it seemed that during my last exploit with that particular skill builder, certain social side stats took a bit of a dive. I dunno how important they all are, but I like to think of my character as not exactly a shadowy type anyway, and I have this itch about letting potentially positive numbers drop. So yeah, I'm probably going to deny those requests for now, so best not to waste actions. But a brawl, or chess, or coffee, still up for. Haven't seen any negative effects to those activities.

Yes I think I know what you mean. You lose the "connected:society" when loitering.

I just loiter, when I don't have that quality at the moment or I spend it beforehand

On a similar note, Gentleperson Grand may just have to stop participating in such uncivilized behavior as random brawls. Entirely aside from being a being of mysterious and indeterminate gender who at least tries to be civilized, they always lose. Random fights are no way for a gentleperson to spend their time. At least until they increase their Dangerous trait somewhat drastically. ;)

You can do that effectively by spending your hard earned lessons ;)

Oh I know, I just have this bad habit of concentrating on a single trait. On the other hand, they may have changed how my single favorite plotline worked. I got a pair of Connections cards and decided to earn some rostygold, then met up with the Cheery Man and started the Family and Law story. I could swear that used to be an opportunity card. I wonder what other plotlines I'm missing now...

It seems you can unlock a weekly storylet by going to fallen london over a link on their facebook page.

There are monkeys for this one!

I do love me some monkeys. ^_^ I suppose I can cease my training to beat the shite out of I mean assistance with the local pest problems to give it a whirl.

So after royally futzing up the monkey weekly storylet, I decided to stop my single-minded pursuit of Persuasive and do the first adventures of each of the skills. About two days later, I've gained about 20 levels of Dangerous and I haven't finished the Clay Coleman's story. Also Dangerous plotlines seem to be few and far between, while I'm literally tripping over Persuasive ones. Am I missing something, or is Dangerous a rather underdeveloped path?

Most of the other stuff in Watchmaker's Hill is similarly Dangerous.  Why not Brawl or Needle Wrestle at the Medusa's Head for example?

Ambition: Nemesis is also a Dangerous (& Watchful) path.

Welcome to the community, delicious friend! ^_^ Trust me, it's more than worth it. The writing in this game is beautiful, and you can absolutely spend a handful of minutes every three hours or so on Fallen London without missing anything.

Everyone should send me lovely gifts for the Feast :)

 

I am currently trying to figure out what I was doing before I stopped playing a while ago :)

I think I stumbled in via the carnival. It's a right bum-ache.

Essentially I have to either play dice (50/50) or chess (16 to me/ 74 to him) with Death until my wounds reach 0. Oh, or I get lucky and heal by picking the right opportunity cards.

Am in serious sulk mode :(
