london game

London’s street musicians sing of a child Valkyrie, who roams the winding streets with her broom-spear, setting right the wrongs of the world. Join her crusade and mentor the abandoned children she has taken under her wing. But take heed: she has declared herself against a singularly dangerous enemy - Mister Songbird, the whistler in the night.

HOJOTOHO! is the third and final story in the Season of Stones, and was written by Cash Decuir. This Season involves three linked stories delving into the hardships and injustices at the heart of London. Players will be able begin each story from the Season of Stones card.

At the end of the season, players who played all three will unlock bonus content allowing them to address – or profit from – London’s inequity.

In addition to a new, substantial, stand-alone story every month, Exceptional Friends enjoy:

  • Access to the House of Chimes: an exclusive private member’s club on the Stolen River, packed with content
  • An expanded opportunity deck: of ten cards instead of six!

  • A second candle: Twice the actions! 40 at once!

Finishing all three stories in the Season of Stones will make you eligible for an additional opportunity, to follow.

If you want to keep an Exceptional Story beyond the month it’s for, you must complete the related storylet in the current Season’s card throughout London. This will save it for you to return to another time.

If I had written it....

Name a written work and tell us what would be different if you had written it, good, bad or weird.


Stephen King’s It: if I had written it, the sewer orgy would happen to the adults, and Pennywise would be invited.

Jack London’s “To Build a Fire”: if I had written it, there would have been zombies.

Super Mario Brothers: If I had written it, there would have been zombies. And a sewer orgy. With Pennywise.


Potentially the best thing about Snoop Dogg performing at the 2017 NHL All Star Game is that Snoop fucking loves wearing hockey jerseys and we might see him try to rep every single team’s sweater at some point.

FBG advertising Fallen London: “Discover a dark and hilarious Gothic underworld where all your actions have consequences. And did we mention it’s free?” “Welcome, delicious friend.”

FBG advertising Sunless Sea: “Lose your mind. Eat your crew. Die.” “Experience cannibalism on the go”

If it continues to escalate, I can only imagine what it’ll be for Sunless Skies.

Fallen London

I’ve been playing Fallen London for a couple of months. What a great game! Especially since the number of actions is limited, so you can’t waste whole day on it. Plus it’s free and you can play it on your phone.

If you like the Victorian setting + Lovecraftian lore + humor and horror, I absolutely recommend it! At times the writing in the game is better lovecraftian fiction than many of Lovecraft’s own works in my opinion (but you’ve got to play a while to get to the good stuff, some of it is premium content, but not all).

So if you’re fond of the setting of Dishonored or Bloodborne you’re probably going to love it! It’s a bit of a grind at times, but it’s not a time-wasting grind and much less so than it used to be. Give it a try, it gets really good after first few weeks when you get the hang of things and start getting into the longer stories.

There’s Eldritch Capitalistic Bats from Space, Actual Devils, Rubbery Men with Faces of Squid, Tomb Colonists Wrapped in Bandages, Talking Cats, Murder Tag with Knives and Candles, and a sentient Bazaar. What’s not to love?


This is a completely and wholly honest representation of Mr Wines.

This entire sitting left me wondering how uncomfortable it would be to wear clothing over fur.  I had also thought that the corsetry of many of the ladies in Fallen London was terrifying; I can’t imagine what possessed Mr Wines to do this to its wings.

It was willing to part with some excellent vintages while posing.  For a price.
