The original plan was to pay Arendt outright for his illustration work. I don't need to give you any money now!
But you realise we're probably not going to make any actual money out of it? Kennedy and Arendt recruited a number of other friends to write additional content, and over the years, the writing of Fallen London became a collective endeavour.
Fallen London is built on Failbetter's Storynexus engine. Kennedy has explained that creating Storynexus was the original motivation behind the creation of Fallen London. The company's plan was to develop Storynexus as an open platform, but later described Storynexus as a 'failure'.
