A Sparring Bout!

From Fallen London Wiki
Fist.png

SPOILERS AHEAD! BE WARNED!

It's your turn to launch an attack. How will you do it? Will you arrange a midday brawl in their anteroom? Ambush them from a passing hackney carriage? It doesn't matter, so long as you win.

Game Instructions: Victory requires winning two out of three bouts. If you allow yourself to be inspired by your Dreams, your attacks will be more powerful; Frontal Assaults will empower Dangerous attacks, while Bewildering Ambushes will empower Shadowy attacks.
