That's right, more Fallen London [chat]

*scurries off to copypasta Jacob's OP*

Fallen London, available on Android/iOS or at fallenlondon.com, is a free text-based comedy/horror choose-your-own-adventure/RPG by Failbetter Games, set in the same world as their Sunless Sea. One night in the 1860s, London was stolen by bats - yes, bats - and transported miles belowground to the Neath, a vast subterranean cavern with its own ecosystem, continents, saltwater ocean...and monsters. Now it is 1894 and life goes on much as it always has, with a few small changes. Death is less permanent. Hell is next door, and smiling devils ride through the streets of London in brass carriages. Poets and bohemians slip into the fog of a new drug that lets them literally escape into dreams. Vast shadowy powers - the Palace, the Parliament, the Church, the Anarchists, the nations of the Surface, and other, stranger things - wage clandestine wars for control of the city.

Into this steps a nameless, faceless stranger. SPOILER ALERT IT'S YOU
M2Tm0oc.png

You choose your name, cameo picture, gender (or no gender), preferred title of address (Sir, Madam, my Lord, my Lady, Citizen, etc) and decide whether you are more sneaky, fighty, intelligent, or persuasive. Then the game turns you loose on the city of London and says good luck.
RaJsMDB.png

What do you do? Well, at first, you just try to survive and make your way in the world. As you play, you'll uncover, and make choices about, your character's backstory, their motivations, and their goals for the future. Some characters might want to achieve artistic success, becoming the most well-regarded poet or playwright of the day. Others might want to go into the Church, or politics. You can become a professor, a policeman, a champion prize fighter, or a private eye. You'll probably end up being a couple of those things anyway. And as you advance in whatever your chosen field is, you'll begin learning the hidden truths of the setting, about what's really going on, and decide what you're going to do about it.

The game is 99% text, and there's a lot of it - something like 2 million words - and it's terrific, atmospheric stuff. A few sentences at a time, it paints an evocative picture of a strange, beautiful, terrifying world that lives on in the memory as vividly as if you'd experienced it in 4K max graphics.

Oh! And you don't have to do it all alone. You can interact with other players through notes and cards, enlisting their help in tough problems, sending gifts, tending to each other's wounds, or just sitting down to a nice game of chess. If you play, let me know, and I'll add you to the list!

    Local news:

    Reports of a man with a rifle or similar wandering the streets aiming at cars got five armed police patrols scrambled.
    When they met the man it turned out to be bicycle handlebars that he was carrying. No police case was created, says the entirely unnecessary conclusion.

    65d37d882399cc428d6383d2bb0fc520.jpg

    A car drove on red, right around the corner from me. The reason the light was red was because the light rail was coming. The light rail managed to brake enough that it didn't fling the car through the storefront of the local spar, which was fortunate for me because then I'd have to walk a couple minutes longer to buy my eggs.

    Linus: Sure Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about. Lights please?

    And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, “Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings o great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ, the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, “Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men.
