My alt hasn't had a kitten since the Seeker went North (I persist in regarding my profiles in that fashion). http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/profile/Alt%20Ern

Anyway, would someone see their way to providing a gentleperson with a kitten? It'd be nice to take to Zee.

I actually thought Feducci wanted to fight the boatman, though I'm not entirely sure how I came to that conclusion.

Maybe Feducci is also the Boatman?!?!

    I think you're mistaken there. Some people held on to their NPC confessions in the belief that they could be given to Huffam, but this turned out not to be the case iirc. The Huffam interactions were only for the confessions of your new companions (i.e. upgraded Accomplices, Henchmen, Urchins, Goldfish, Dolls, Tigresses)

    As Dov has pointed out, you're mistaken.
    There was a bit of flavour text for each confession but it didn't really give much insight.

    I'm also mostly undecided, though I'm fairly certain I won't be backing the DTC, purely because I'm fairly sure she's going to win.

    If she doesn't, however, there's a reason to be excited should either the detective or Feducci wins. There's to be a return to the Dilmun club sometime before the end of the year, and I think it's fair to expect some form of minor tie-in with the detective being mayor.

    On top of that, Sinning Jenny had a self-contained fate-locked story after becoming mayor. I'm to assume there's some correlation there. Should Feducci gain his own brief fate-locked escapade in the same vein as SJ's finishing school, I can only expect that it'd be thoroughly enjoyable.

    I'm going to wait until the gifts for enlisting with the various candidates are revealed to actually pick one, though if the watchful boots remain the most tantalizing option available, my backing's going to the detective.

    tl;dr down with the dtc.

    I'm kind of on the fence as well, the campaigner i really like the platform shes running on, and I do quite like tea. I've always liked the implacable detective and we do have a lot of crime in London, it would be interesting to see what happened if we had the detective as a mayor. And Feducci sounds more like who my character would vote for because of his platform of away with restrictions. Honestly, all of them have good platforms, and no matter who i back and what the results are. I will say this, the next mayor of Fallen London (Goodbye Jenny my dear, you were a good mayor) will be very interesting.

    There's not much text to it, but it's here:

    As for the confession itself, I found such an echo here:

    Gideon pulls a selection of small dark bottles from the folds of his suit. Such hospitality on the part of Herr Von Darken must be repaid, after all. The labels are handwritten and thoroughly cryptic. “HECATONIC BRANDY – A SPIRITUAL PALLIATIVE”, says one. “STENOGRAPHIC GIN – FOR WRITERS”, says another. A third reads merely “PORT” with a large skull-and-crossbones next to it. It is not to be drunk under any circumstances.

    The inventor pours a drink of Hecatonic Brandy for himself in a lead-crystal shot glass, and knocks it back in one gulp. “Explosives are a tricky thing,” he ruminates. “Power and instability often come hand in hand, and we’ll certainly need power to do any damage to a statue of such solidity. I may be mad, but I’m not mad enough to brew up high explosives in such quantities in my own shed, marvellous as the facilities are.”

    He casts his eyes across the group again, as if seeing them for the first time. “I’m sure I’ve seen some of you at my shed-meetings before. For the Cause, and science, and all that. I don’t suppose any of you are fond of masks?”

    It is unclear whether the blank looks he receives are from reluctance to discuss such matters or merely confusion. Regardless, Gideon forges on. “The channels through which I have procured the explosives are not strictly legal, but we all know that such petty laws are merely the tool of the bourgeoisie to keep the righteous from exploding whatever we please, as is our right.”

    Gideon produces a series of plans of the square from his endless pockets and unfolds them on the table. Astoundingly, they are neither drawn in crayon nor scrawled with illegible annotations: they are pencil-drawn diagrams of suitable grenade-throwing arcs, notable stress points in the statue’s structure and the ideal position to plant bombs.

    “I enjoy chucking a good grenade as much as the next man, but situations such as this statue call for explosives of a higher order. Each of you will get your fill of little fizzing bombs for dealing with the Special Constables, of course – we wouldn’t be the gunpowder faction without them – but the quantity of nitroglycerine required to blow up this statue is far too much for us all to carry.”

    He points to one of the diagrams, which shows a horse and cart with an arrow pointing towards the statue. “I have taken the liberty of hiring a cart to transport the barrels of explosives we require. It will travel from the south end of the square to the centre, covered and disguised to avoid attracting suspicion. Once the horse and driver are clear – along with any of us who happen to be nearby – one of us can push the plunger, and BOOM!”

    Gideon thumps his fist on the table for emphasis as he shouts the last word, sending a flock of pigeons scattering and flapping wildly in a far corner of the church. Von Darken’s flask falls over entirely after being juddered by the corporal’s exuberance, staining the corner of one of the diagrams with liquor.

    “The matter remains of how we can get the cart close enough to the statue without attracting undue attention,” muses Gideon. “I will organise the distraction myself on the day. Herr Von Darken, you mentioned a gang of Fisher Kings resided nearby. I can make use of them. The distraction I had in mind involves copious quantities of fireworks, and urchins do love their sparklers.”

    Gideon sits back, hands steepled. This may turn out to be a good day after all.

    I'm going campaigner because it's refreshing to be backing someone who has little to no idea of all the intricacies and plots running in the political/criminal/mythical underbelly of Fallen London.

    Here's a lady that's going to try to push her agenda of temperance without meddling in the business of Masters, criminals, or foreign agents.

    I guess that's what I like about her, she seems terribly naive yet charismatic enough to still be a force to be reckoned with, and that's new and refreshing considering all the seasoned veterans, dabblers in eldritch lore, and political masterminds.

    Does advancing your career during election increase by levels or by CPs?

    Well, the family dinners *are* awkward, we know (at least, they are if you insist on showing up with a low Persuasive.)

    No, wait. The only safe place is... North! Surely they can't reach me there? wink


    Hunter's Keep?

    I would say Mutton Island, but as I recall Mutton Island was in on it in a big way last year.

    I like to imagine that, since they are all London citizens, each of the three sisters supports a different candidate each year. That must make family dinners quite awkward. Or violent. Or both.

    Hello!

    I'm hoping to find a patron of Invisible Eminence to help with Shadowy.

    Current unaltered stats:

    Watchful 84
    Shadowy 52
    Dangerous 59
    Persuasive 95

    Username is Norathar and my character is currently rather poor, having spent all her Echoes in purchasing an entry in Slowcake's and a bright brass reliquary with the eventual goal of having a marriage at Zee. (After that, her next goal is an expedition involving being a Scholar of the Correspondence, and hopefully opening a way to the University.)
