Write Letters

Pen, ink, blotter all at the ready.

Arrange a meeting with your contacts

If they won't come to you, you must go to them. This will allow you to draw a Connected card of your choice immediately, without waiting for it to show up.
[This storylet will not cost you an action!]

Choose a new Profession

"Dear Sir - it is with profound and utter sorrow that I must beg to inform you…" Too much? This will remove your current Profession, allowing you to choose a new one. It will also remove the unique item your Profession provides.

This simply allows you to send a custom message to them. There are currently no in-game effects, except the cost of postage.

Open a way to other parts of the City

Travel across Fallen London can be fiendishly difficult. But if you're cunning or determined, you'll find a way.

Gain access to Wolfstack Docks

The Docks are Dangerous, but offer opportunities for the very skilled. You can bribe a Corrupt Customs Official to provide you with a dockside permit… The Wolfstack Docks are most interesting to players with Dangerous 60+.

bottleandglasssmall.png [Unlocked with 1000 x Greyfields 1879]

Gain access to the Flit

It's said you only need two things to get into the Flit: a head for heights and a criminal record. Actually the second is optional, but they'll want to see you climb like a pro. The Flit is most interesting to players with Shadowy 60+.
catsmall.png [Unlocked with Shadowy 50]
catsmall.png challenge

Bribe your way into the Flit

It is inconceivable that a Flitling might betray all those dramatic and blood-curdling oaths, just for a bribe. Inconceivable. Unless it's a really big bribe.
Moon-pearlsmall.png [Unlocked with 1200 x Moon-pearl]

Gain access to the Forgotten Quarter

If you're lucky enough to own a London Street-Sign, you can use it to open a way to the Forgotten Quarter, where secrets await the very Watchful… The Forgotten Quarter is most interesting to players with Watchful 60+.
London_Street_Signsmall.png [Unlocked with 1 x London Street Sign]

Gain access to the University through wisdom

Benthic and Summerset Colleges are careful about who they allow to walk their soggy lawns. You'll need to demonstrate you're a scholar of worth. The University is most interesting to those with Watchful in the 80s and up.
librarysmall.png [Unlocked with a Scholar of the Correspondence 1]

Gain access to the University through wealth

If it's not what you know, it's what you have in your pockets. A sufficiently generous endowment will open that menacing black door for you. University content is most interesting to those with Watchful in the 80s and up. You can acquire Memories of Distant Shores by using Academic items in your inventory.
wakesmall.png [Unlocked with 30 x Memory of Distant Shores]

Buy a season pass to the Labyrinth of Tigers

London's most notable maze full of tigers. They like large donations of animal fodder. They have a lot of stripy mouths to feed.
ratsstringsmall.png [Unlocked with 5000 x Rat on a String]

Find your way to Mahogany Hall

Mahogany Hall! HOME to London's FINEST and FOREMOST ENTERTAINERS! To become welcome backstage, you'll need to bribe the stage-urchins with a selection of items. Things magicians use in their acts, for example. These sorts of things are always in short supply here. Mahogany Hall is most interesting to players with Shadowy or Persuasive 95+.

Invite a friend to join you in something potentially dangerous.

Earn Hard-Earned Lessons and other things of use.

Invite someone to a Sparring Bout

A round or two of honest fisticuffs, or perhaps one of those peculiar Eastern fighting traditions. (Higher Dangerous tends to win. The winner becomes more Admired. The loser learns more…gaining more Hard-Earned Lessons.)
Unlocked with Dangerous 5

Nurse a friend back to health

If your friend accepts, their Wounds will be reduced. You will receive nothing but the proud knowledge of a job well done.
Unlocked with Dangerous 10

Poison an acquaintance!

Tired of being victimised in the Game of Knife-and-Candle? You can poison someone under the guise of tending their wounds, instead increasing their Wounds quality if they let you close enough!
Unlocked with 1 x Abominable Salts

All this blood has got you thinking about death

You've been down here long enough to know that the stories are true. One may attain immortality in the Neath. If you're going to be down here eternally, you'd better have decent company. Who would you choose to spend the long epochs with? (A matter of luck: it could go either way.)


bottleandglass.png

Attend to matters of society and scandal.

Earn Confident Smiles and other delights, or seek assistance in reducing Scandal.

Invite someone to a Private Supper

An intimate and shockingly unchaperoned occasion, or a comradely meal and chat? Either way, it'll be candle-lit. There's little choice down there.
foxsmall.png [Unlocked with Persuasive 5]

Ask someone for help in laying rumours to rest.

The wicked things they say about you! …you need a faithful friend to pooh-pooh this nonsense. With help, you can reduce Scandal
foxsmall.png [Unlocked with Persuasive 30]

Use someone as your dupe

You could convince someone to deny certain rumours. You could then arrange matters so that they become the target of those rumours! It would be a wicked betrayal. But it would also be a more effective way of diverting attention from you. And immoderately entertaining.

Laugh off scandal!

Society indulges its favourites. If you're sufficiently Admired, you can shrug off a scandal with a few witty remarks. But be warned: this will take its toll on your Admired.
foxsmall.png [Unlocked with Persuasive 40]
wavessmall.png [Unlocked with Making Waves 15]

One gets so tired

O, the wearying whirl of endless salons and parties! How to stave off the day when all company is dull, and diversions no longer divert? A monkey-smuggler! A weasel-juggler! A comedic trombonist! Actually, don't you know one of those on the Surface?
A matter of luck: it could go either way.
goldenapplesmall.png [Unlocked with Hedonist 3]

Name a pet.

You can't keep calling it 'you'. Even if it's a small child. Especially if it's a small child!
[This storylet will not cost you an action!]

furtivehand.png

Invite a friend to join you in something rather shadowy.

Earn Hastily Scrawled Warning Notes and other things of interest to the criminal element.

Invite someone to a spot of Suspicious Loitering

An afternoon's lurking on an ill-lit street corner, talking to hard-faced men in impenetrable criminal slang. Who knows what you might learn?
Unlocked with Shadowy 5

Just the place for a certain sort

The reason that London is full of ne'er-do'wells and thieves is that the gloom and quiet makes it such an attractive place to run to when one has to leave in a hurry. You know a villain on the Surface, don't you? You should get them down here.
Unlocked with Connected: Criminals 10


pawn.png

Invite a friend to join you in something terribly intellectual.

Gain Sudden Insights and other benefits.

Invite someone to a Game of Chess

Calling all brave technologists!

London needs bold engineers and visionaries. Call them down from the Surface!
