Today, we are releasing some smaller updates to Fallen London.
At last, it is now possible to raise your Watchful cap to 230, bringing it in line with the other main attributes. We delayed this to give this bun enough time in the oven and allow the story of [redacted]’s [redacted] to come to a satisfying conclusion. If you have already raised your Watchful cap to 218, you can pick up the story thread with a new experiment in your Laboratory. If you’re not sure where you are with Watchful Gains, the new Grizzled Veteran can help you.
The Grizzled Veteran, already available since last week, is a new character that can be found at your Lodgings once you have obtained a Person of Some Importance specialization. He’s intended to help you find some late-game stories, from starting a Railway to raising your attribute caps to learning advanced skills.
Finally, one last treat for the players who already have it all: You can now purchase a Hellworm of your very own, for the low, low price of 200,000 Hinterland Scrip. We’ve meant to add a new big-ticket item for very advanced players to work towards, one that would tie into the Upper River and Hinterland Scrip economy. While the Hellworm’s inherent attribute enhancement may seem underwhelming at first, there is more to it than meets the eye… specifically, there is an opportunity card that can be found as long as you have one equipped.
