The Feast of the Rose is now entirely over, and Lilac is no longer available to accept Masquing.
What to look forward to next?
Through early March, we’ll be continuing to make small updates and improvements, but the next major new event in Fallen London will be the Parabolan War.
Elected as Lord Mayor in the last Election, the Viscountess of the Viric Jungle has opened a new front in the great conflicts of Parabola. Players will be able to participate in the myriad campaigns of the grand Parabolan Wars, establishing themselves a power in their own right. The factions of Parabola will take notice, however, and you will find yourself courted by various Parabolan powers who desire your assistance in achieving their own various ends.
The Parabolan War will be new, permanent content in the game. Players who have a Parabolan Base-Camp will be able to choose sides and take part in that conflict, while Londoners who have yet to reach Parabola may see rumblings of what awaits them there.
In the meantime, players curious about the lore of cats and Fingerkings may enjoy the stories in the Mirrors and Claws story bundle – and February’s Exceptional Story, The Fair Unknown, speaks to other powers to be found in the land beyond the mirror.
After the release of the Parabolan War, players building the Great Hellbound Railway will find themselves with access to The Hurlers, an ice-rimed wasteland bearing the traces of the Discordance. We asked Chandler Groover, author of several fan-favourite Exceptional Stories about the Masters and the Correspondence, to contribute to this station, and we very much look forward to sharing what he’s done with the place.
Later in 2021…
After these new elements and following the Whitsun season, GHR builders can look forward to Marigold Station, reconnecting with the end of the Moloch Line, outside the gates of Hell.
We’ll also be launching our revised Zee content: making better use of the Unterzee map, adding new story elements, and improving the zailing experience for all players with a ship.
Meeting Your End, or Metempsychosis, remains on the drawing board, but will launch much later than we initially planned. We saw so much enthusiasm for the Great Hellbound Railway that we expanded its scope quite a bit beyond what we’d initially imagined, with larger stations and a more extensive storyline. That has meant revising the rest of our schedule accordingly. Moreover, we heard a lot from players about what you’re hoping to see (or not to see) in the Metempsychosis content – feedback we’re bearing in mind as we refine the design.
