The Shuttered Palace

From Fallen London Wiki

The Traitor Empress hasn't left the palace in thirty years. Her consort still arranges concerts and banquets in the darkly glittering rooms and dripping gardens. You may be invited. But go carefully. She dislikes sudden movements.

  • Card deck: This location uses the main Fallen London deck.
  • This location forms part of the main Fallen London setting. All locations within the main setting share the same hand and deck. Moving between other locations of the main setting does not affect the hand or the deck size, with the exception of adding or removing location-specific cards to/from the deck.
  • The deck in this location is limited to 6 cards (or 10 cards for Exceptional Friends).
  • The hand size in this location is determined by your Lodgings.
  • If you leave this location and come back later you will start with all the cards that were in your hand when left, except the cards whose unlock requirements you no longer satisfy.


  • The inscription on the image for the Shuttered Palace reads "OMNIS TRADVCTOR TRADITOR", which could be translated from Latin to "EVERY TRANSLATOR IS A TRAITOR" (if doing so wasn't apparently treason).
