Echo Bazaar Scandal and the Tomb Colonies

I enjoy going to the unexpected districts and seeing some of the less salubrious sights of Fallen London. However, sometimes the timing is not quite what it could be and I really wish to leave in a hurry.

In that spirit, I created this quick reference guide to Scandal. My mother would not be surprised.

You have fled Fallen London for Tomb-Colonies in an attempt to avoid the gossip. Soon, the scandal will die away and you can show your face in society again. But it is somewhat dreary. There must be ways to speed things up, mustn’t there?

    How the heck do you get out of here ?!? I have gotten rid of my scandal but it says that I have items that equal 1 point of scandal. So, how do I get rid of them? I can’t sell them as I can’t get to the bazaar and I don’t have enough to “gift” as part of the “price of forgiveness”. Am I just stuck here forever? I’ve done about 50 actions on this today trying to get out. HELP!!! Thank you :)

    Lady M: Check your clothing. If you are wearing something (for example a bonnet or red stockings) that increase your scandal, that could cause you to become stuck in the Tomb Colonies. Take the piece of clothing off and you should be able to escape.

    Yes, I agree that taking your stockings off in public in order to decrease scandal is somewhat counter-intuitive.
