The Contrarian is going to be an interesting experiment. I mean, a member of the Calendar Council gaining the mayor-ship is probably the worst case scenario for the Masters. They probably have plans on how to handle this - they have plans for nearly everything under the false stars. But this certainly isn't an ideal turn of events from their perspective and we all know from personal experience that the Masters don't always get everything that they want, however much they scheme.

So, this is the administration that will demonstrate whether or not it's possible to use the mayor's office to weaken the Masters or win concessions from them. The Temperance Campaigner's hostility to Wines and Spices would have given us the exact same experiment, but, well, you know...

Your questioning draws attention; a handsome youth in sable-livery approaches you with a smile. "The Masters present a gift. For your continued silence." The diamond gleams long after his smile has faded.


This looks a lot like them bribing people to ensure that Jenny's successes are underreported, to undermine her and the mayor's office in general.

I just realised: from a gameplay perspective, Feducci cleared my Criminal Record. That's something that had never been possible before, and concievably may never be possible ever again, or at least for a very long time. So while in-universe, he did nothing of note, out-of-universe he is likely to remain the most impactful mayor in for long time, because I'm not sure what could beat that.

I admit, I would have loved to see what Her Dauntlessness would have done in office. Especially if Jenny's support had helped carry her there. An alliance between London's most temperate and its most tempting, against Masters and exploiters! Oh, it's marvellous to think of.

I wonder if the Contrarian might also be able to do that, considering his newfound 'alliance' with the Constables. Would only take a little currency and a clever argument to make them willingly burn the records of specific, reformed citizens who have learned the error of their ways and fall all-too-easily under the suspicious eyes of the law. That I could see him managing to do with his position, and with a good bit of incentive to do so.

Admittedly, from a story prospective, clearing people's criminal records is pretty noteworthy, given how unforgiving London's justice system tends to be. This didn't do much to help London as a whole though and was just part of his Hallowmas intrigues, as opposed to an actual attempt at criminal justice reform. Lucky individuals who brought him secrets were the only beneficiaries.

While there's no evidence yet that the Contrarian has managed to weaken the Ministry, he is certainly annoying them.
