Mr Chimes' Grand Clearing-Out is a one-off event succeeding Elections.

5 dig sites have opened in Fallen London. These have to be fully sponsored and excavated, by buying scrip with Fate, Offering food to the diggers and digging.

Overview[edit]

Across London 5 new dig sites have appeared. In order to complete this both the digging and fuelling qualities for that dig site, which are shared globally, need to hit 1 million, and the FATE part needs to be fully funded. Once all these three are completed the dig site will be excavated, players will be unable to dig/fuel further, and a new repeatable activity will be added.

Digging[edit]

The most basic way to contribute is to Help with the digging, which raises Toolbox.png Digging beneath (location name) (quality dependent on which dig the player is at), by 5 x, and contributes to reaching 1 million Toolbox.png Digging beneath (location name) for that location. Every time Help with the digging is played it will redirect the player to A Find Beneath the Streets, where either economy item(s) or, with the right values, an equipment item can be found (see #Unique Rewards for more information).

Fuelling[edit]

Alternatively, several food items (Bread.png Crate of Incorruptible Biscuits, Lumps.png Basket of Rubbery Pies, Teachipped.png Jasmine Leaves and Mushroom2.png Hand-picked Peppercaps) can be spent to increase Lambchop.png Feeding the Workers at (location name) by 20 x per food item. Feeding the workers redirects to The Opening of a Chamber, where players can claim a different economy reward, however the unique item rewards are the same.

A Ubiquitous card, An Upturned Cart, also provides various options that significantly increase fueling at a chosen digsite. Once every digsite was opened, the card was discarded.

Now that one of the digsites has been completed, new fueling options have been revealed which increase Lambchop.png Feeding the Workers at (location name) by 80 times the number of opened digsites.

Sponsoring[edit]

Players could buy Currency3 gold.png Chthonic Scrip for FATE at the digsites, which helped Fund the dig sites, however this goal was completed within an hour of the event starting.

Progress[edit]

All Fate goals have been met.

Rewards[edit]

Every action spent digging will allow a reward to be claimed from A Find Beneath the Streets for another action. Every action spent fuelling will allow a reward to be claimed from The Opening of a Chamber. With the exact right number of Digging/Fuelling one of the following items can be claimed. This progress is dependant on your attributes, according to Bruno[1].

Additionally, Currency3 gold.png Chthonic Scrip can be spent for a variety of rewards. 30 can be gained initially for a cost of Shard.png 200 x Shard of Glim, further scrip must be gained from spending fate (1:1 ratio) or from exchanging Gift.png A Free Gift from previous elections.

Rewards when digging or fuelling[edit]

Unique Rewards[edit]

While you can get these from either source, it's suggested to gain them while digging, as that is cheaper.

Location Clues & Unlocks[edit]

After being fully excavated and financed, each location contains something different.

Dig Site Associated Item Location Unlocked Description from Look into these tunnels
Spite.png Spite Peacoat.png Polythremean Peacoat Underclay The tunnels here have delved deep into the Earth, and they have uncovered remnants of a previous Falling City: Stone blocks and clay bricks of unfamiliar make; the odd fragment of a stone tablet or potsherd.
University.png The University Manacleshoney.png Honey-Stained Shackles Old Newgate Numerous iron chains and manacles […] leading a Benthic professor to theorize that these are the remains of the HMS Ungulate […] He hasn't proposed a theory for how the ship got buried […] Nor does his hypothesis account for the constant buzzing […]
Wolfstack.png The Blind Helmsman Contraptioncarriage.png Horseless, Driverless, Remorseless Carriage L.B. Industries The tunnels here are filled with a noise of machinery. The bulk of excavated items seem to originate in London – whatever is buried here must have sunk into the Earth with the Fall, if not more recently.
Veilgarden.png The Singing Mandrake Slipperssilk.png Elevating Silk Slippers Spider Symposium The tunnels beneath the Singing Mandrake have yielded relatively few artefacts of note. But they do have a recurring problem with cobwebs, and more than one digging Londoner has reported a chittering noise from below.
Ladybones.png Moloch Street Ringwillow.png Strangling Willow Ring The Sunken Embassy A ring of brass the colour of mahogany was recovered early on in the digging. Papers and files are commonly found, too, though they are often too damaged to read. And it's hard to ignore that the tunnels have the faintest scent of brimstone.
