Deep. Dark. Marvellous.

I've gone to Fallen London! http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com

For quotes from and images reminiscent of the subterranean-Victorian world of Fallen London.

That in mind, let’s dive right into some of the horrible ways I’ve died.

  • Failed to fully grasp ship controls and rammed into walls until I sunk (that was embarrassing).
  • Giant crab.
  • A slow, bobbing white mass—almost tumor-like in appearance—called a “lifeberg” approached me. “Huh, wonder what that thing’s deal is?” I thought to myself as I slowed my steam engines to meet it. I was presented with two options: fight or flee. My chances of escaping were basically zero. And the combat option’s description? “Lifebergs can maybe be defeated… in theory.” Fuck. One brief card-game-ish battle later, I was lifeberg chow.
  • Giant-er crab.
  • I decided I would voyage to the northernmost point in the world. I would see The End, and I would gaze into its maelstrom and cackle into the gushing eye of madness. In part because Sunless Sea is still an Early Access game and not content complete, I succeeded! However, I hobbled across the figurative finish line with no food, a mutinying crew, and just enough fuel to take me to the foot of a massive glacier… thing. And you know what I found? Nothing. At the end of the world I found nothing. AT WHAT COST, etc.
  • On the upside, I’m learning. For instance, I saw something called “Nomad, the glass mountain that eats ships” closing on my tail rapidly, and you’d better believe I ordered my crew to put us full speed ahead in the NOPE direction. Miraculously I survived despite the fact that Nomad is rather sprightly for a goddamn mountain.
  • Then I got killed by the biggest fucking crab I’ve ever seen.

my playing style is less careful stat grinding and saving my echoes and more romancing all the rich kids and crowing ‘hey good lookin’ at every devil my character comes in contact with

Anonymous asked: Do you know anything about Fallen London? bc I kind of want a Neathy AU.

comraderogers:

Sorry i can’t help you!! I’ll add this to my open prompts tag, so people can fill it if they want to, or offer recs of anything that fits the bill :))

Greetings, delicious friend! If the request is for cross-overs, these may be of interest to you. I’ve not read them myself, but I trust they’re deep, dark, and Marvellous.

A relative newcomer who doesn’t think this blog should die. Forgive anatomy mistakes, better art is to come.
To understand half of what is going on, I refer you here.
For the rest… well, my general blog as occasion arises.
But everyone can relate to nightmares in FL. And perhaps a little regret.
Then What? You have to get up, I guess…
