I'd kind of like to see the Lady in Lilac be a contender. She already works behind the scenes to bring people together. I don't think it would be that hard to use the same influence to run in an election. I have no idea why she would want to run though.

1. F. F. Gebrandt: a trustworthy and successful businesswoman, though we must make sure her business interests do not interfere with a mayoral post...
2. The Tentacled Entrepreneur: a trustworthy and successful businesssomething, who greatly charmed me at a party
3. The Presbyterate Adventuress. Cool as hell and a minor character that would be fun to explore or even meet.
4. The Tiger-Keeper. I'd like to offer him as a slightly less frightening and more reasonable alternative to the Matriarch. Also, I absolutely loved the keeper-who-is-a-tiger as opposed to the keeper-who-keeps-tigers you assume.
5. Miriam Plenty. Sharp, reliable(ish), a woman of the people, and mysterious. I'd like to see more of her and also like her as a mayor.


Those are VERY interesting suggestions. Here are my thoughts about them.


a, F.F. Gebrandt. A very plausible Mayoral candidate. Not the most fun of candidates, though. She'd be too conventional.
b, The Tentacled Entrepreneur. A very implausible Mayoral candidate. (Not that that eliminates er... it...from consideration; FL is a game with a highly implausible premise after all.) The TE's limited communication skills would be an enormous handicap in politics, especially London politics. But if it had an assistant who could do the speaking for it? Perhaps the Deluged Docent would be interested in that job?
c. The Presbyterate Adventuress. Possibly too intelligent to want the job, but if she were suitably motivated to run, I'd be delighted to vote for her--I think she's tough and smart and my character and I think she would be a splendid Mayor.
d. The Tiger Keeper. I would have loved the TK as Mayor UNTIL Port Carnelian (and now the Court of the Wakeful Eye) opened. The problem is that the TK is essentially a member of an alien race. He has his own interests to foster and they may not include the welfare of the human inhabitants of Fallen London. My character would spare no effort to keep the TK from winning. Now, mind you, the risks implicit in electing the TK may be a reason to have him as a candidate.... :-)
e. Mrs. Plenty. Having played through SMEN with another character, I think Mrs. Plenty is tougher, shrewder, and more knowledgeable about both the ordinary and the extraordinary hazards of Fallen London than most of the other possible candidates, and that spells Mayoral timber to me.

I would love to vote for Virginia the Deviless, she always dabbled around influential figures.
Or Your Inconvenient Aunt, she's family after all.
Or maybe a drownie, or Clay Man or even a Rubbery Man, just for the Controversy of it!

We've been discussing possible candidates over at the Discord server and I made some mockup posters. Maybe you guys will get a chuckle out of them. Big Grin

I nominate Lyme. He's perhaps the most educated person in London.

The Northbound Parliamentarian would be a darkly hilarious choice for mayor.

My meager thoughts:

1) The Northbound Parliamentarian: Already connected to both the workings of the political machine AND to one of the most terrible and wondrous mysteries of the Neath.

2) The Ambitious Barrister: It's in the name! The moniker, rather. Surely this would be another peak for her to conquer.

3) Our Incovenient Aunt: What could be more incovenient than having our dear aunt campaign to be elected Mayor?

WHERE IS THE DISCORD SERVER?! there's an official discord server?

I am still heartily in favor of Your Aunt. Despite the rp issues involved -- but that's the fun, after all! Your Aunt is about, even if you don't have one. Or maybe she just claims to be your aunt. Maybe she wants to be everyone's aunt. Maybe she sort of adopted you.

Though she might be in with the devils, now, who knows. Maybe she's London's Aunt, and not actually the PC's. But I think we can make it work. <3

Lady of Cold Steel, Lady of the Flit, Lady Alyssana Grey. A formidable woman, hard to read and slow to trust. Darkness lurks inside her.

Alts: (please direct all inquiries to Alys & say who they're for)
-Nikki, the Playful Daredevil, leading the constables on merry chases across London at every available opportunity. It's not a good robbery if you didn't get chased~
-Shylarah, waifish, wide-eyed, painfully foreign, entirely untamed. Her search for a way home now leads her to Parabola. There's something about her...
-Dr. Maxwell Thomas, a kindhearted physician who can't stand to see suffering. Moral to a fault, even to his own detriment. Unlucky in love.
I would rather be taken for a fool than deny aid where it is needed.
-Angie, the Cheeky Sharpshooter. Got her start with the Regiment and proudly operated their cannon for years. Rowdy, rough, and among the best shots in London.

The bare thought of a Starveling Cat running for political office in London is so thoroughgoingly mad that I'd almost like to see it happen. Almost.

I'm not sure if this fits canonically (does the Cheery Man get eliminated if you side with the Last Constable?), but I'd like to see the Cheery Man run for Mayor. Although this doesn't fit his character, it'd be interesting to see someone associated with the criminal element so heavily change London.

I as well would like to see:

1) Three urchins in a trench-coat: No one else cared about the poor impoverished children of the rooftops, so they are doing it themselves (as usual).

2) The Starveling Cat! The Starveling Cat! It's London's new mayor, but it's a cat!

3) The Ambitious Barrister: I think it's about time she did something with those ambitions.

Our Inconvenient Aunt would be cool, but for players who haven't spent fate to continue her story she is not in any condition to run.

I would pour every last resource I had into this helping this candidate win. "Seeking Mr Eaten's Name" levels of self-sacrifice.
