Attending a Party (Guide)

From Fallen London Wiki
Salon3.png

You are at a party. Your actions will increase Wineglass.png Talk of the Town, which trades for rewards at the end when you leave, particularly Sidebarmakingwaves.png Making Waves gain, among other things.

What to do at a party[edit]

  1. Your Clock.png Time Remaining... quality tells you how long you have left at the party. When it reaches zero you will return to your lodgings.
  2. Each party passes through a number of stages: arrival, mingling, finding a dance partner, the last dance, dining, winding down, and leaving.
  3. Parties are a good way to increase your Wineglass.png Talk of the Town quality. At the end of the evening there may be an opportunity to trade Talk of the Town for a Document.png Personal Recommendation or Baldman.png Favours in High Places, valuable qualities of use in crafting higher level items.
  4. You can interact with specific guests via opportunity cards. Guests will present different possibilities as the evening progresses. Check back on them throughout the party.

Cards[edit]

Strategies[edit]

When visiting the party, there are several different strategies one can take.

Talk of the Town[edit]

75 cp of Wineglass.png Talk of the Town is exchangeable for 50 Icon-echo.png of favours in high places. This gives each CP a value of around 0.67 Icon-echo.png . Most actions provide 2 CP (1.33 E), but some provide more. If you're in need of Document.png Personal Recommendation, this may be even better if comparing to buying these on the Bazaar Side-Streets. The options at TR 5 are very good, so you should try to either have a Spindlewolf or acquaintances you can slight.

Important TR values:

  • 6: Arriving fashionably late provides 4 CP Wineglass.png Talk of the Town at the expense of 2 TR - this makes it impossible to use the actions at 5, however.
    • Alternatives are arriving punctually and giving a devil a bottle of Broken Giant. Both provides 2 CP, the devil would also provide favours (at an expense).
  • 5: Slight someone for 6 CP Wineglass.png Talk of the Town or use your Spindlewolf.png Spindlewolf for 3 CP + 2 Icon-echo.png worth of Conversation.png Incendiary Gossip. These are both valuable options that should not be missed.
  • 4: The Jovial contrarian wants to argue. This provides 4 CP Wineglass.png Talk of the Town and spends 2 TR.
  • 3: The Turkish girl provides 3 CP Wineglass.png Talk of the Town for a dance.

Favours[edit]

Draw cards at the beginning of the party for best chances to gain favours. The Brass Ambassador... and The Tentacled Entrepreneur... are good sources of Devil.png Favours: Hell and Rubberyman.png Favours: Rubbery Men respectively, depending on the Time Remaining. In addition, favours with the docks and favours with society can be provided. When no good options are available, you should play a bad card in order to get another draw.

Important TR values:

This means it's possible to get 8 favours from a single party, but a more reasonable expectation is 4-5, as there's some cards you won't draw.

Progress[edit]

Note: most cards could appear at any time but actions on the cards will only open up at the Clock.png Time Remaining... (TR) levels below. The numbers in brackets denote the Wineglass.png Talk of the Town CP obtainable through this option, and its cost in TR if above 1. The entries also list their cost / rewards of items and favours, if applicable.
