- Three decades ago, London was stolen by bats. Dragged deep into the earth by the Echo Bazaar. The sun is gone. All we have is the gas-light of Mr Fires. But life goes on, lit by glowing fungus and candlelight. There are still people in Fallen London. And there are still temptations...
Tonight, you are at the Brass Embassy. An intimate little soiree, with four devils and their six human guests, entangled in the delicate dance around the matter of souls. They say all devils want souls, but why? Is it purely business, or is there pleasure, perhaps need, maybe something else altogether? And of humans, who would part with it? Why? What has lured you here, to Hell's own doorstep on a cold Neath night, to risk giving your soul away?
The fires burning low, Mr Wines' special reserves are dwindling and the Devils have brought out the treats. The world down here is complicated, and no one's motivations, not even the devils', is straightforward. "An Intimate of Devils" is a mature, intimate game exploring relationships, emotions and philosophy around the trade of souls.
Based in the setting of Fallen London from the Echo Bazaar game by FailBetter games, but no knowledge of Fallen London is required. A moderate amount of costuming is required but emphasis is on interaction and character exploration.
