A secret of currencies? Or a currency of secrets?
Gain this through opportunities featuring the Numismatrix

Choosing a Side


Choosing a Side

The Numismatrix told you something of the secret currencies of London, and the intrigues pursued in their acquisition. If this is a game, which side will you play for? You will get a chance to change your mind later, but that may have other consequences. Not all the groups in London are involved.
[Unlocked with Spending Secrets 3]

The Constables

Stability, order and occasionally putting the boot in.

The wealthy and the well-bred. If one cannot count on such people, one cannot count on anyone.

The Bohemians

Art and beauty go hand in hand with money and secrets. A mirror to the world.

The Great Game

Money and power and secrets? You'll barely notice the difference.

The Urchins

The grubby street-children see things nobody else does. They know the little lost roads and the old stories.

Devils make a great study of human frailty. How can they not know about secrets and money?

Money and secrets are the tools of oppression. How delightful to turn those same tools back on the establishment.

The Church

The fount of morality and good governance. There is no better place to put your faith.

The Docks

Zailors have seen things. Secrets and treasures from far-flung lands. If anyone knows about exotic currencies, it's these fellows.

Secrets and money. Who else could you turn to?

The Tomb-colonists

The dead, the near-dead, the forgotten. Perhaps we will all end up that way. They deserve your sympathy and your efforts.

The Continuation

At this point, many options open up on various opportunity cards around Fallen London.


The Awful Temptation of Money

Trade is the basis of civilisation, from the marbles the urchins swap in their games to the deals that shape an Empire. If only they were all honest. You have a lead on some rare coins.

A smaller bazaar

The hawkers around Moloch Street Station are selling tie-clips, wedding rings, diaries and other impediments not needed by the passengers going West. Today, they sell old coins for a song.
