Painting in Balmoral (Guide)
This page contains details about Fallen London Actions.
Balmoral is found at the fourth station of the Railway. Apart from visiting the local forest (the Moonlit Woods, where you can gain Moonlit for painting) and Balmoral Castle, you can join the artist in the old Distillery in Crathie and take up commissions for Her Enduring Majesty. She has neglected to visit the place since the Fall, but that doesn't seem to bother anyone.
Your progress towards a finished piece is tracked by Painter's Progress. It is set to 1 when beginning a new commission and when it reaches 7, the painting is finished. This means you have 6 actions to contribute to your work and it takes 8 actions to fully begin and finish a painting. Your painting's style (the reward) is determined by the combinations of Painting: Luminosity, Painting: Nostalgic and Painting: Incendiary.
You have 6 actions to influence your work for every painting. Both success and failure increase Painter's Progress by 1.

Since both success and failure add one of the three attributes, your painting will always end up with 6 marks in total. The amount and combinations of these determine the rewards.
You must present your Completed Painting before starting another one!
There are small additional rewards for the success of each option:
- Inspired... (+1 CP) for Paint with Moonlight
