    Recently have gotten rather hooked on Fallen London. I did really enjoy Sunless Sea, but the worst part of the game was the slow sailing bit. It was a time sink to drip feed you story.

    Fallen London just cuts out the middle man and I can play it on my phone. Highly recommended!

    I feel like it says a lot about Fallen London that Parabola, a jungle accessible through dreams and mirrors ruled over by serpent-bird-ball things with dubious morals, is actually LESS disorientingly weird than the Elder Continent’s bleeding forest which is exactly what it sounds like or Polythreme aka Gay Island where all inanimate objects are alive and very gay or the Brass Embassy where devils first overthrew their aristocracy and then overthrew the laws of physics for good measure

    like places you can reach by boat are more like fever dreams than a place actually accessible via fever dreams

    There's a lot of analysis of memes at that tumblr that I can't quite tell is serious or not.

    I'll be keeping an eye on that for sure. I really like the original and would love a second pass at it.

    Victorian empire in space apparently - Looking at a lot of the more cosmic bits of Fallen London's lore.

    Less grinding to get to the good stuff

    I'm not too stoked on the expansion - through no fault at all of its own, I just spent so much time with the base game that the idea of getting back into the grind for the sake of reaching the new content isn't too appealing. (Though maybe it's standalone? I should probably look into it more.)

    Full on sequel, though? Very much yes.

    Supposedly they're working on the grind as a top priority

    Did anyone ever release mods for Sunless Sea? I can't find anything on Steam, but just increasing the speed of the ships would cut down on the grindy bits. Exploration was always fun, but the trading required to make it possible just always took far too long.

    "If complete and utter chaos was lightning, then he'd be the sort to stand on a hilltop in a thunderstorm wearing wet copper armour and shouting 'All gods are bastards'."

    Apparently it has a Nexus site, because what doesn't. It has a whopping two mods on it :lol:

    One is an easy mode mod, but it does a lot more than just ship speed. Maybe too much. If you end up using it let me know what you think, I'm curious but not curious enough to actually start a new game.

    Prepare to spend even longer within the Sunless Sea.

    Okay, it's October 11. WHERE IS IT?

    Sunless Sea's Zubmariner expansion releases at 6pm BST / 10am PDT today, but if you need something to keep your captain occupied until the various store pages go live, developer Failbetter has added some new quests to the base game. As explained here, you don't need to have purchased the expansion in order to access the new content, but it will foreshadow some of the events that lie in wait in Zubmariner's spooky Unterzee.

    Been playing Zubmariner for a few days, and I've already lost two captains to storylet insta-kills. I had to sell off all my heirlooms and my mansion just to get my ninth captain into a kitted-out cargo hauler.

    Reminds me of how scary this game is before you learn where all the booby traps are buried. It's a good thing!

    This game is still totally buggered for me and the support staff just gave me a couple solutions regarding deleting and reinstalling a .tff file that they found in steam user discussions, then when that didn't work they said they didn't have any better ideas and stopped responding. Lame!

    psst

    it's election season

    who will you vote for to be the mayor of a 1895 London that's been kidnapped to a cave where the laws of reality are more of a suggestion

    Got to say when I saw an email in my inbox entitled "An Election is called" I genuinely thought it was from the Labour party and May had resigned.

    Mayabird on Fallen London as well - if anybody wants donations or wants to give donations for the Implacable Detective, send me a calling card. Or just send me a calling card if you want a private supper or need an author to show up at your salon. I do both.

    I suffered a terrible blow around the new year, it destroyed my morale in Fallen London and Sunless Sea, really should finish that nation founding bit in SS

    I picked the Temperance Campaigner, harsh though she may be on some issues she does genuinely care about a lot of worthy causes
    Turns out she has old debts with the Anarchists calling in so i made the proper choice

    Jeeze. The campaigner is working with anarchists, someone in the GnT thread says that the detective might be associating with things that live behind mirrors, and Feducci is Feducci. Seems like everyone's got something that'd make them a real bad choice.

    The same was true with Jenny and the Masters last year but she seemed to turn it around. For my part I'd rather take proto-socialism with a focus on substance abuse prevention over authoritarian policing or victorian libertarianism

    I feel like if you're gonna bring up the poor history platforms that focus on increasing policing have, you should probably consider the poor history temperance movements have as well.
    And while the masters are pretty bad, the anarchists are even worse, by my understanding.

    Listen, the Calendar Council has some extreme methods that may or may not end well but when the other option is letting
    the Judgement's control and oppress the universe with the concept of the Great Chain for all time
    i'll take my chances.

    also, hallowmas esteblished that
    she didnt knowingly associate with revolutionaries, it's just that one of her closest companions in the campaigns was also secretly March, the head of operations against Mr. Wines. And it's heavily implied he was killed by other revolutionaries because his methods got too pacifistic, probably because of the campaigner's influence

    Pretty much all the different factions in Fallen London are terrible in their own special way. It's mostly just a matter of taste which poison you want to pick.
