Moonlit Woods (Guide)

From Fallen London Wiki
Spoiler warning!
This page contains details about Fallen London Actions.

The Moonlit Woods is unlocked once you've elected Crown2.png Balmoral's Castellan in Crown2.png Balmoral. In order to enter the woods you will need to spend Surmise.png Vital Intelligence twice. If you have Tattoo wheel.png The Seal of St Joshua, you may alternatively use Library.png 4 x Volume of Collated Research as a substitute. This should get you 14 Forestnight.png Time Remaining in the Woods, which should be more than enough for what you want to do.

The main two qualities for the Moonlit Woods are Moon.png Moonlit and Fox2.png On the Scent. Moon.png Moonlit allows you to access more of the woods as well as other actions elsewhere, while Fox2.png On the Scent can be used to gain various observations. You can then give the observations to the Marigold Menagerie Keeper for rewards. You always lose any remaining Fox2.png On the Scent and Forestnight.png Time Remaining in the Woods when you leave the woods or make an observation. Moon.png Moonlit carries over, but you do lose the 5 Moon.png Moonlit when cashing in via Track your quarry.

When entering, you arrive at The Moon-Seared Paths, from where you can get to either The Wispish Fringe or Silvered Glades. With Moon.png Moonlit 5 you can also enter Balmoral As Before
