Breeding Monsters (Guide)

From Fallen London Wiki

Theological husbandry in the Labyrinth of Tigers. Unlocked with Making Progress in the Labyrinth of Tigers 16.

Catching the livestock[edit]

Cost (If we add the cost of moving to and from the 4th coil):
5 actions, 100 Honey.png Drop of Prisoner's Honey and 10 Crypticsecret.png Cryptic Clues.
Cost (Not taking into account getting out of exile):
1 action, 1 Vialblue.png F.F. Gebrandt's Tincture of Vigour (1 E if bought from the Bazaar)
Cost:
Very hard to calculate. Depends on your Zailing Speed, the cards in your opportunity deck, and how many actions it takes to succeed in capturing or winning a battle against the Plated Seal. Monster Hunters have an advantage in capturing the Plated Seal.

Ways to breed, and the results[edit]

You can work at raising one, two, or all three of the following 3 Progress qualities to 6 in order to breed your beast. The different combinations will give different results for a total of 7 possible results from any one animal! For increasing Trail.png The Hunt is On! one may also use options in Wolfstack Docks. Getting a progress quality to 6 takes 7 actions with 100% on the hardest options.

The Formula for Empyrean Redolence[edit]

Should you have this FATE-locked item, some additional options will be open to you under Pulling out the Stops. You will be able to breed four new beasts with their own opportunity cards. You will also need access to Flute Street for the Rubbery Hound. Once all beasts are bred, you may breed a Owl2.png Bifurcated Owl by using Paperstack.png 500 x Page of Cryptopalaeontological Notes in your lodgings.

Empyrean Redolence cards[edit]

This guide is incomplete. You can help by expanding it.

What needs work: Values with question mark need confirmation and update per 13th August patch note.

Each of the Leopard.png Corresponding Ocelot, Toad.png Ocular Toadbeast, Horseblack.png Obdurate Stallion, Eater.png Slavering Dream-Hound and Owl2.png Bifurcated Owl have an associated opportunity card. As these companions/transport are FATE-locked, no narrative text may be recorded on the wiki but mechanical effects may be recorded.
