From Fallen London Wiki
An update to the Fate policy
(created by TFF on 06:18, 31 January 2022)
Recently, on the wiki Discord we discussed if Fate reward information could be structured similarly to non-Fate effects after User:Elderfleur brought up Your spouse, the Secular Missionary as an example. I have now received a reply from Failbetter that this is acceptable:We're comfortable with that […]
Announcing changes to how Gain templates work
(created by Asarta on 15:46, 30 December 2021)
Update 30 December 2021

{{Increase}} and {{Item Gain}} now are wrappers for {{Gain}}, and editors are encouraged to only use {{Gain}} when creating new pages. At some point in the future a bot will replace all uses of {{Increase}} and {{Item Gain}}, after which they'll be deprecated.
Original […]
Module:ItemList is dead, long live Template:Item
(created by Alan on 02:15, 11 December 2021)
Hi all,
Thanks to the work done by User:PSGarak, we've been able to remove the step of updating the subpages of Module:ItemList (e.g. Module:ItemList/Gloves).
Now, effects will only need to be filled in within the Item template, using the EffectX parameter(s). Access information (seasonality, fate, […]
Exceptions to Truncation Policy
(created by Alan on 21:56, 8 December 2021)
Hi all,
Recently, editors have been discussing whether {{Truncate}} should be applied to access code text and item descriptions. We reached out to Failbetter asking whether we'd be permitted to exempt this text from truncation, and they've given their permission.

We've had a chat internally and […]
Planned Updates to Module:ItemList
(created by PSGarak on 20:19, 3 December 2021)
This is the next installment of the extremely sporadic series where I try and make the Wiki better using Semantic MediaWiki (SMW). This week's target is Module:ItemList, the cool piece of code behind most (all?) pages that list or compare items. Examples include the item listings on Category:Gloves […]
VisualEditor Enabled
(created by Alan on 06:40, 16 October 2021)
I've enabled VisualEditor as an option on the wiki, coexisting with the old source editor. This should make it easier to create freeform tables when necessary. It's still highly recommended to use the source editor to work with templates, as source editing likely remains significantly more […]
Dynamic World Quality content with Semantic MediaWiki
(created by PSGarak on 00:52, 1 October 2021)
Hi all,
I'm doing an experiment to see if we can make the Wiki reactive to World Quality changes in a way that's helpful. The current changes are in place for some Rat Market pages. These things use Semantic MediaWiki under the hood, to let other content query the current value of World Qualities […]
Idle thoughts on item sources, wikitext export and parsing
(created by Naoh on 04:50, 27 September 2021)
The item pages list item sources, which are helpful if you need to grind items. Category:Cartographer's Hoard Gain is very helpful: it lists the two actions which give out that item.
For Whispered Hints, there are some 234 actions yielding them. The anatomy of a secret is helpfully listed on the […]
A Quick Introduction to Semantic MediaWiki
(created by PSGarak on 19:00, 18 July 2021)
As the primary zealot of Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) around here, it's basically on me to advocate for it if I want anyone else to care about it. I've finally found some time to begin writing an explainer series for how SMW works, what benefits it can bring to the Fallen London wiki, and how to put it […]
Template Editor Group
(created by Alan on 05:57, 30 June 2021)
I finally got around to creating the template editor group.
Instead of fully protecting certain heavily-used templates so only administrators can edit them, this group allows us to grant more users the right to edit the aforementioned templates.
Currently, I've only downgraded the protection level […]
How to organise item Gain pages so people can see easily how to get stuff
(created by Wriothesley on 18:25, 23 June 2021)
Sorry I'm a regular but not hardcore player and I'm also not very familiar with wiki templates and coding. Is there a better way to organise item Gain pages by number gained and requirements so people can easily see at a glance how to get stuff? Can it be done automatically or would this involve a […]
Show Card Borders
(created by Mzs on 08:23, 13 August 2021)
For Everyone
We're experimenting with showing the coloured borders arounded icons on Card and Storylet pages! This is being rolled out to Card pages for opted-in users as I type. If you'd like to opt in to the experiment, simply enable the Card Borders gadget in your preferences. (Admin note: now […]
Better handling of edit conflicts
(created by Alan on 20:34, 3 June 2021)
The default MediaWiki edit conflict interface is easy to overlook, and a bit unwieldy besides.
A new extension has been installed ("Paragraph-based Edit Conflict Interface") that should improve the process of resolving edit conflicts. You can opt out, if desired, from Special:Preferences.
Proposal: Move the Guides section to the second sidebar slot
(created by Asarta on 16:08, 30 May 2021)
Currently the Guides section of the sidebar is the very bottom part of the "main" sidebar (the part we can easily control via Mediawiki:Sidebar. I'd like to propose to move it instead to the second slot, which is currently occupied by Stories, and as a result of that move the rest all down one […]

MediaWiki 1.36 and Other Updates
(created by Alan on 21:11, 19 May 2021)
MediaWiki 1.36.0 will be releasing sometime this month. The 1.36.0-rc.0 release candidate version is already available, and installed on dev. I would appreciate it if you'd poke at it and let me know if anything seems broken.
The current skin the wiki is using, DarkCosmos, posed […]
Spoiler-minimal Ambition: Nemesis Guide
(created by Naoh on 06:57, 12 May 2021)
For story content like Ambitions, I am of two minds:
On the one hand, knowing what to grind beforehand can save a lot of time
On the other hand, reading even the headings of an ambition page is certain to give you major spoilers.
As I have recently completed Ambition: Nemesis with an alt, I have […]
Changes to Quality and Item pages
(created by Alan on 16:41, 10 May 2021)
Semantic MediaWiki has been installed, and {{IL}} has been reworked to take advantage of Semantic MediaWiki. Huge thanks to PSGarak for doing the work necessary to make use of SMW.
In the past, y'all may have noticed slight performance degradations for a while after entries were added to […]
A guide to the costs and rewards of Discordant Studies
(created by Mzs on 19:43, 5 May 2021)
tl;dr: Discordant Studies - Costs and Rewards (Guide)
I'm well aware the announcement banning most of the new Discordant Studies content has been rather controversial. While responses varied, one common concern from some folks was that they were uneasy about not knowing what they stood to gain or […]
New Parameter for Narrow Challenges
(created by Alan on 23:59, 4 May 2021)
As some of y'all may have noticed, there are a few strange challenges in the Hurlers that don't follow the rule of "60% ± 10% for every level above or below the target level" - some challenges are inverted (Play a round of Blindfold Bezique), and some increment using steps that are not 10% (5%, in […]
A second Announcement regarding Hurler puzzles
(created by Asarta on 12:46, 27 April 2021)
Hi everybody,
Alan has just received an answer to his email enquiring about the possibility of adding the puzzle related content in the Hurlers. Unfortunately enough FBG have said that for now all content beyond the disclaimer may not be added.
Therefore this content is banned, starting now, under […]
Announcement regarding Hurler puzzless
(created by Asarta on 15:43, 26 April 2021)
Recent Hurlers content includes puzzles which according to the starting description will require outside the box thinking.
After some discussion, and as a executive decision, this content is forbidden for inclusion until we hear back from FBG what their opinion is on its inclusion.

Proposal: Changes to the wiki's skin
(created by Alan on 06:57, 25 April 2021)
One of the most common (and deserved) complaints about the wiki is regarding its skin. While the wiki was in development, I did enough to get the skin to a state which I deemed acceptable, but graphic design is very far from my passion, and I'll absolutely admit that the skin leaves much to be […]
Works in Progress with Semantic Mediawiki
(created by PSGarak on 02:38, 18 April 2021)
Alan has been accommodating enough to humor my request to install Semantic Mediawiki (hereafter SMW) on the dev version of this Wiki, and so far I've managed not to burn the servers down while tinkering with it. After an inordinate amount of experimentation, I think I have a handle on how it works […]

Module:Check for unknown parameters has been added to this wiki
(created by Asarta on 17:37, 7 April 2021)
Hey everyone!
As was requested a few weeks ago I've added Module:Check for unknown parameters to the wiki and added it to {{Item}}, {{Storylet}}, {{Card}} and {{Action}} (pending sysop action). This means that when you in future add a parameter to any of those templates that isn't defined in the […]
Emissary pt 3: Wealth transfer and 'anti-social' actions
(created by Naoh on 21:28, 11 April 2021)
This page used to contain an off-topic blog post about grinding with the use of alts and transferring wealth between accounts. It will be reposted on reddit and linked here eventually.
(I will keep the page here to keep the comment intact)
ConfirmEdit and QuestyCaptcha installed

As you may have noticed, there was a spate of spam account creations earlier today.
In response, I've enabled ConfirmEdit and QuestyCaptcha for new account creations and adding new external links.
There are currently four questions in rotation ("which company created FL", "what does EPA stand for", […]

Unknown template parameters category?
(created by Naoh on 13:01, 28 March 2021)
My good denizens of London,
I have just fixed two pages where the template parameter "Locked with" of Template:Action was preposterously spelled as "Locked With" (with a capital W).
This caused that parameter to be ignored altogether, and in turn some confusion to Yours Truly. I have heard […]
Proposal: Reworking the Quality - IL - ItemList flow
(created by Alan on 19:30, 26 March 2021)
The current method of adding Qualities and Equipment, where entries must be manually added to Module:IL/images (and a subpage of Module:ItemList for equipment) suffers from two main issues:
Editors must know / remember / bother to add a new image to the respective module page(s).
Edits to […]
CirrusSearch has been installed!
(created by Alan on 06:29, 25 March 2021)
I've heard the frequent complaints about search behaviour, and am pleased to announce that CirrusSearch is now installed on this wiki!
Please play around with it (including settings in Special:Preferences), and let me know if you encounter any issues.
Fixing Best-in-Slot calculators
(created by Adnoam on 13:54, 24 March 2021)
I wanted to start the long-awaiting task of fixing the Best-in-Slot calculators (BiS) to properly take into account Ambition rewards. It turns out to be somewhat trickier than I would have liked, given the possible combinations of mutually-exclusive items.
So right now I see two challenges:

Changes made in response to feedback
(created by Alan on 11:58, 22 March 2021)
I've made / am going to make a few changes to the wiki in response to feedback.

Users have pointed out that better comment extensions than mw:Extension:Comments exist, namely mw:Extension:CommentStreams. I'll be moving the wiki to that extension by Tuesday.
I've made a few changes for the sake of […]
Moving the Fallen London Wiki
(created by Alan on 18:51, 31 March 2021)
Hey everyone! I'm excited to announce that this wiki is currently planning on leaving Fandom. I realise that this might appear to be a bit of a fait accompli; I'd like to explain the decision and our plans here.

We've had issues with Fandom for years now (for example: here, and here), and have […]
Updates to the Fate policy
(created by Alan on 18:51, 31 March 2021)
Recently, there have been grey areas regarding content that has appeared to make otherwise Fate-locked content eligible for inclusion on the wiki. For example: the Rusty Census-Taker's Badge affecting 40-Masquing Companions, the Temple Club Access Code, and the Great Bone Market Crash of '98 […]
Mobile site issues
(created by Everlastingwonder on 19:54, 26 February 2021)
I use the wiki on my phone a lot, and the mobile version of the site is kind of a pain to use. Specifically, Template:Options displays strangely because the Success and Failure headers it generates are recognized as collapsible settings, but not the actual option title. This makes pages hard to […]
Spoiler template usage
(created by Everlastingwonder on 07:22, 26 February 2021)
I've noticed that some of the top-level page templates (e.g. Template:Action) use Template:Spoiler at the top, while others just have text that reads SPOILERS AHEAD! BE WARNED! Is this potentially worth standardizing? It looks like only a few templates would actually need to be changed.
Request for Feedback: Item Obtainability
(created by PSGarak on 22:38, 22 March 2021)
I have plans to add a new pair of parameters to {{Item}} to denote items that cannot be obtained from regular gameplay. I would like some feedback from other Editors on whether this is worthwhile, the overall design, the details, and the wording.

Fate-locked items used to be clearly […]
Obsolete template parameters

I've been doing a lot of work in Category:Site maintenance of late and one thing that keeps getting my attention is that we have two empty categories that seem to exist just to aid transitions that have already finished: Category:Item Sources Using Deprecated Parameters for using the old Item Name […]
Fixing the Front Page
(created by Aximillio on 10:42, 13 January 2021)
Let's just admit it. Our front page has seen better days.

For one, the latest activity box doesn't work and thinking about it, I can't remember when it did...
Also nobody's used the forum the last few years and why would they, when we use blog posts instead?
As such, I propose some changes. I […]
New Template: Variant table
(created by PSGarak on 17:40, 21 October 2020)
I've created a new Template named Variant table to help us manage the new amount of dynamic content that has come out in the past year or so for Fallen London. The community has generally settled on tables to collect all of the textual or mechanical variations. This Template packages up the table […]
New wiki software

As you might have noticed, our Wiki's software has been upgraded. This was part of a wider change by FANDOM across many wiki communities. While the new software version is very welcome, there are apparently a few things that broke here and there (since we have lots of older template and module […]
Truncate Template

Updates to Template:Item
(created by Adnoam on 19:09, 20 August 2020)
Hi all,

I've started making several upgrades to Template:Item, which were sitting at the back of my mind for a while now.
I wanted to write the details here, both to get feedback, and to help organize my own thoughts.

Upper River Shops

With the release of Ealing Gardens, we now have our first shops outside London, not counting the Iron Republic's cameo. The problem is that these shops let us sell items for Hinterland Scrip instead of echoes—but our templates currently only allow for items bought or sold in a single location. […]

Following the recent discussion on my wall:

The idea is to revamp the current category structure as it relates to Qualities (and probably to Items as well), to better match new changes in the game.
Historically, the wiki has been categorizing qualities as follows:

A Comic, Random Oddities, Expired Coffee, Spreadsheets, Difficulties, and Images.
(created by ZDee on 22:35, 22 March 2021)
Sounds like a typical day for a FBG staff member? ...No, it's the content that's been released in the past few weeks! :D

The new Broad difficulty scaler is 60%, falling in line with all other StoryNexus stories. Please confirm that the difficulty field in every article shows the new scaler and not the old one.

Over and out.
The Forgotten Quarter gets a makeover
(created by Jemann on 23:15, 17 November 2021)
By now I'm sure you've all seen the changes made to the Forgotten Quarter. Formerly a temporary destination on your way to a University Fellowship, it's now home to repeatable expeditions and treasure hunts. Some changes:

The Airs of the Forgotten Quarter is a random quality (a […]
Casual : Some intriguing but minor bug pics that I recorded.
(created by Nedemmons on 12:36, 25 June 2013)
These pictures are screenshot of bugs that got fixed or way too minor to report. I decided to show them as conversation pieces. Also, I wanted to try pratice wiki tools that are seldom used. Who knows, it might become handy later.

Also, these pictures only shows up if you click "Read More >" […]
The Airs of London are stranger than usual
(created by Vae Victis on 18:11, 18 June 2013)
Recently I've been using different actions that change The Airs of London, mainly in the Time in bed storylet in my Lodgings, but also in other places. It seems that the increases and decreases that were previously determined are incorrect and my Airs value is simply randomly set. At first I […]
Happy Spending

In our occasional news feed some interesting cases have appeared:

We've just got our own Bazaar guide on the wiki. This contains the different shops and what they sell.Visit The Echo Bazaar! to find out more!
With the Bazaar update came new sell and buy messages, which the wiki obviously is […]
Temporary Events have moved, weapons have been updated, and more!
(created by ZDee on 22:24, 22 March 2021)
The top green navigation bar has been updated:

"Temporary Events"/holiday/unique timed events or whatever you wanna call 'em have been moved to the Retired section as "Seasonal Events". These are the cards and storylets of the Feast of the Exceptional Rose, All Hallows' Eve, or visits from Mr […]
Retired content is now archived!
(created by ZDee on 18:36, 10 May 2013)
There's a new special section for retired content. A link is located under the "Stories" tab of the top green navigation bar.

Several deleted pages were restored earlier and tagged as "Retired" for your viewing pleasure.
Some notables:

Your everyday pets just got a little better!
(created by Aximillio on 10:34, 30 May 2022)
As quite a few of you already know (especially if you've read the forum post), Pets just had their bonuses updated. 

This means that a Bifurcated Owl, that previously had
+2 in D/P/S/W; +1 Bizarre/Dreaded before now has +5 D/P/S/W and +2 Bizarre/Dreaded.
This obviously meant our pages had the […]
Contacts & Quirks: a new cataloging system
(created by ZDee on 16:26, 23 March 2021)
Hi, guys! You've probably noticed the changes to the classification of Connections and Quirks. To account for the increased prominence of Connections, a new system is in place. Please use it:

Connected: Bohemian is increasing...
(tag page with category "Bohemian Gain")
Connected: the Duchess is […]
Trivia: Choose Watcher as your Profession (The Great Game Connection Card)
(created by Vae Victis on 22:36, 22 March 2021)
In my ongoing search for RL references and inspiration in FL (cue theme from The Surprising Adventures of Sir Digby Chicken Caesar) I've stumbled on the Whispers from the Surface: The Great Game card. The Watcher profession option has the line "They also serve who only stand and watch."

That is […]
Failing to Record Success

I've decided to stop recording these messages:

Trivia: Lilac inspirations?
(created by Vae Victis on 16:12, 30 March 2013)
It's always intriguing to get inside the mind of a writer - to see what drives them, where they draw their inspiration. In the case of the Lilac card, I think I can make a good guess:

The woman in the lilac dress is very similar to Lady Roberta Meserole (or Madam, or Aunty) from Terry Pratchett's […]
Are we 'occasionally seen at Mr Wines' Revels' or not??
(created by ZDee on 22:33, 22 March 2021)
I am haunted by the thought that I might have erred in my recent revisions for the following pages:

Turn on the charm
Impress her with your knowledge of science
Give up on this 4
Do the bidding of Mr Wines
DEAR MASTERS, I can't recall the exact wording! *flails armsO_O

Relic Pages
(created by ZDee on 22:27, 22 March 2021)
While sorting through the Article Stubs category in a feverish daze, I discovered this category page:

...Huh, what? I suppose it's a placeholder for page drafts.
"Article Imports" has four pages I've never seen till now:
1) Major Characters
It lists all the Masters, their […]
Surviving the End of the Feast
(created by Funkimonster on 21:56, 1 March 2013)
Well guys, although the Bazaar fought back, we managed to record the changing storylets and actions. Now all that's left is adding in categories and some polishing up and we're good to go until the next update. Thanks for the input guys!
Updated difficulty levels

Update (10/4/13)

The new difficulty system is now documented on the Broad difficulty page. There are calculators and everything.

The devs have messed with the challenge levels. I'll quote Tesuji (writing here on the official forums), since he's […]
The Silver Tree
(created by Jemann on 03:48, 22 October 2012)
Just a short post to note that:

Tales of Fallen London: The Silver Tree is launching soon;
It's part of the Fallen London-verse, so I assume we will cover it here;
Paid content, as always, should not be added to the wiki. That includes any backer-exclusive rewards, unless someone can […]
The Silver Tree Kickstarter

Location Specific Opportunity Cards
(created by Aryenke on 13:51, 3 February 2023)
New place to put these: Category:Location_specific_cards — Aximillio (talk) 22:24, December 23, 2013 (UTC)

I think I have a good enough list to start putting these someplace more easily accessible. I was thinking of the Places page - and I put an example here at The University page. If you […]

Very soon, we're going to remove the daily action cap for everyone. To prevent people tearing through both our content and our servers, we're going to tweak the action refresh time to every ten not every seven minutes... but that […]
(created by Harry2469 on 16:14, 23 March 2021)
Oh lookie all the stubs now have 2 stub identifyers now. It seems that pages with insufficiant content are now automatically stamped as a stub as opossed to the wiki's users having to append non-complete articals with {Stub} to show they need information. I cant help but wonder what the wiki […]

Quick! It's starting! Now is the perfect time to jump in and GRRRRIIIIIIINNNDDDD!

Message Wall
(created by Neonix on 08:16, 31 January 2012)
From wikia

Message Wall is a new feature that replaces User Talk Pages. I've recently activated it on our wiki - please let me know if you approve! It should be easier to leave messages and keep track of the ones you receive (or so it says so, anyway). Give it a try!

New Wikia Editor

Greetings, fellow Fallen Londoners!

Wikia has just released a new version of its Page Editor. I thought maybe we could try it out for a week or two, please let me know what you think. :)

We are now THE wiki.
(created by Neonix on 03:19, 31 March 2011)

We have now merged with making this the EchoBazaar resource on wikia. Their wiki now redirects to ours, and so I'm hoping to see new faces! :D

Disambiguation Pages

Disambiguation is the process of resolving ambiguity — the conflict that occurs when a term is closely associated with two or more different topics. In many cases, this word or phrase is the "natural" title of more than one […]

In the spirit of positive reinforcement, I present the newest addition to the Fallen London Archives - Achievement Badges!

New Inventory Slots!
(created by Neonix on 20:35, 2 March 2011)

Expect new categories for our Item pages once they implement this in game. (Or we just might need a brand new categorizing scheme! Let me know if you have any ideas.)

Exceptional Friends!
(created by Neonix on 18:44, 23 February 2011)
It is sad day! Free players are now reduced to a mere 40 actions per day (50 with refresh). :( That means I have to reduce the senseless grinding somewhat... Nevertheless, we must persevere!

Hello everyone! It's only been 3 months since we first made this wiki, and we're approaching 2.5k pages already! :D Needless to say I'm very proud of what we've accomplished, but of course there's always room for improvement.
