Fallen London is a free to play browser based Victorian Gothic text adventure. Their premium subscription service offers a new Exceptional Story to play through each month.

For June 2019 I wrote The Garden Embassy: an Exceptional Story that sees you invited to the grand opening of the Garden Embassy, a mysterious establishment representing a collection of her majesty’s overseas colonies.

(Spoilers for Fallen London content ahead)

The Garden Embassy was an incredible privilege to write for Fallen London as it centers on an ambassadorial entourage from the antipodean colonies of the British Empire and the fate of those colonies in Fallen London’s alternate timeline. I greatly enjoyed filling the module with Australian references for players to puzzle out and creating characters that could provide real positive representation of Australia’s first nations peoples, as well as plenty of queer representation too.
