I've heard of an upcoming seasonal event called The Fruits of the Zee Festival, and I was wondering if I could do anything to prepare for it? Could someone please provide some info on what the festival is and how to prepare? Thank you in advance!

Not much for this one other than getting your quirks up, since you use them on fishing. Having some Partial Maps, Zee Stories, and Map Scraps can be nice too.

You go fishing near Mutton Island. As Kaijyuu said, you need either high quirks or the named items for successful fishing. You can then turn in your "Strange Catches" for several unique items (at least, that's how it was in previous years. Presumably, there'll be new items again this year.)

We also expect our new mayor to make an appearance at the Festival.

Have a look at this thread if you like.

Edit: You don't need your own ship to go to Mutton Island, the festival is reached by a ferry service.

It's worth noting that with the ferry service to and from Mutton Island, the festival is a great time to grind Renown: The Docks or Stormy-Eyed, if one is so inclined.

Don't worry if you haven't got Partial Maps, Zee Stories, and Map Scraps - you can turn your catch into those items at the Festival.

You can also get the quirks for successful fishing while fishing

No Calling Cards or boxed cats please. Will take dupes on the affluent photographers. Other social invitations welcome though loitering might be inconvenient at times. Parabolan Kittens usually available, send me an in-game social action saying you want one and I will get one to you as soon as possible.

Make sure to deal with your menaces before leaving for the Festival. You can lower your menaces on the Island, but it takes time and fish, so best to have them at zero when you arrive.

Thank you for all the responses!

I also heard that you can turn in your strange catch for a destiny. Any tips on choosing one? And would it make sense to go to Mutton Island one day before the event starts to save actions ?

For Destinies... Silver is about Dreams, chilly has to do with the High Wilderness, jeweled involves the Elder Continent, obscure features the Great Work, and "abyssal" takes you face to face with the secrets under the Zee.

How so? Can players with those qualities get more from Mutton Island? Or does Mutton Island provide opportunities to increase those qualities?

You can get Docks favors and Stormy Eyed cp at mutton island, and due the festival you don't have to go back out to zee between each carousel.

Er, you don't actually have to leave between carousels. I was just grinding some Stormy last week and stayed on for several rounds.

How many actions does it take to use the ferry? Can it also be used for return trips?

Ah, neat. Several islands require you to leave and come back. Didn't know this one didn't.

Still, the festival is nice for doing these things, since the ferry is still much more efficient than one's own boat.

Opportunities to increase. One of the storylets that advances the Mutton Island carousel increases Stormy-Eyed (you have to have at least Stormy-Eyed 1 to play it), and is to my knowledge the only grindable source of that quality.

One of the options to end the Mutton Island carousel grants a Favour: The Docks. Since taking the ferry is much faster than traveling in your own ship, it is easier to go to Mutton Island, grind up seven Favours: The Docks, and return to London to cash in for Renown than it otherwise is, though you're still looking at a couple dozen actions per Favour.

@Kaijyuu, I believe it's just the research expedition islands and the Iron Republic that kick you back out to Zee after each cycle.

I took a look at how to get the various rewards from going fishing and noticed that the quality, Running Battle, is used to determine your Strange Catch quality, which in turn, determines your Picking Through the Wrecker’s Cove quality.

Running Battle converts to Strange Catch:

I also noticed that when you go on a ferry to the Fruits of the Zee festival, none of your qualities are reset.

http://fallenlondon.wikia.com/wiki/Catch_a_ferry_to_the_Fruits_of_the_Zee_festival

So, I was wondering if it was possible to grind Running Battle in Fallen London first, then use it for fishing in Mutton Island during the Festival?

No. Setting out on a fishing trip resets your Running Battle.

Though occasionally it is wrong, it isn't in this case.
