University Laboratory (Guide)/Cards

From Fallen London Wiki

These cards are referred to in the University Lab Guide, but can also be bookmarked separately for players who want just want a reference sheet, without the accompanying strategy guides. Cards that fit more than one category are included in every category they fit.

This guide is incomplete. You can help by expanding it.
What needs work: Missing rewards for cards in some sections; incorrect rewards for cards in some places (need to be checked against actual card pages); missing rewards for fate-locked cards, which are now permissible to add without text.


Research-length Cards[edit]

Depending on the length of your study, there are different cards available to help you research.
