The Feast of the Exceptional Rose is upon us! Show your affection or scorn through unexpected and creative gifts! Love is as faceted as the jewel in a betrothal-ring. What will the season have in store for you?




Rewards from the Feast can be won by increasing Masquing. Raise your Masquing through participating in the revels and the exchange of gifts. Later in the festival, use Masquing to unlock unique companions.


Discover all the festival has to offer on the Celebrate the Feast of the Exceptional Rose card, available throughout London.


Discuss the festival or make friends for the exchange of gifts via the dedicated posts on Facebook and Reddit, the tag #flfeastgifts on Twitter and Tumblr, in the dedicated thread here on the forums and on our Official Fan Discord.


New Companions


Companions in Fallen London - be they romantic, platonic, animal or mineral - offer boosts to your stats, and little stories. The Feast of the Exceptional Rose is an ideal opportunity to meet new ones.


This year there are half a dozen new companions to choose from, some available in exchange for Masquing:


  • Discuss music with the Clay Curmudgeon
  • Take a turn with the Jovial Contrarian
  • Take your chances with An Impenitent Devil



And for Masquing plus Fate:


  • Go somewhere secluded with The Intrepid Deacon
  • Visit the cathedral with A Lovelorn Bishop
  • Join the throng of suitors at the feet of the Captivating Princess



To discover the Intrepid Deacon’s story before engaging in the Feast festivities, play For All the Saints Who from their Labours Rest, an Exceptional Story available from the Fate page or from Celebrate the Feast of the Exceptional Rose.


Tokens of Love


Exchange gifts with other players to show them the truth of your heart! Or something more enigmatic. A glass of teeth by any other name would rattle as sweetly.


New gifts for this Feast:


  • An Unblemished Exile’s Rose, plucked from Hell
  • A Liberalian Mask, signifying the excesses of the libertine
  • A Lemurian's Mask, a Hallowmas relic
  • A Lupercalian Mask - the mask of the lover
  • A Set of Martyr’s Bones



Your accrued gifts can be kept for sentimental reasons, or exchanged for different amounts of Masquing.


The Lady in Lilac


“You are desired,” she says. “Give me the proof of it, and I’ll make arrangements.”


The enigmatic Lady in Lilac visits London during the Feast of the Exceptional Rose.


From the 13th of February (Update: now live!), you will be able to draw the Lady in Lilac from your opportunity deck, allowing you to trade in your feast-gifts for Masquing. You’ll also be able to turn in your Masquing for special companions on the Encounters at the Feast card.


The Lady in Lilac and Encounters at the Feast will remain available until the 25th of February, after which your remaining Masquing will be converted to Making Waves when Time, the Healer visits.


Skin-bound Memories


How better to prove your devotion than through permanent ink? High time for a visit to Clathermont’s Tattoo Parlour!


A unique story involving the Neath’s famed tattooists is available for the duration of the Feast. Find the Clathermonts in Ladybones Road when you have A Name in Seven Secret Alphabets at 4 or higher. Continue this story from the same area by playing News at Clathermont’s from 13th February.


Premium Story: The Ceremony


A spate of exquisite and unpleasant transformations sweeps London: new Rubbery enhancements of a drastic degree. What lies behind the tentacles? What secrets are hidden within the spiraling bones? Who is the Gilded Sacrifice?


This winter’s premium story by Cass Khaw is now available on the Fate page, for 35 Fate.



New Merchandise: Clathermont's Art Print


The Clathermont Family’s Tattoo Parlour is the toast of Ladybones Road. Advertise on their behalf with this art print from our merchandise partner, GameTee! This artwork, which illuminates some of the designs available to the passing punter, is an A3 print which ships rolled.

20th February - Gift-giving and general feast activities close
25th February - Exchanging gifts for Masquing, the Clathermont story and meeting companions close

The opportunity to take the Deacon as a companion was all I wanted from this year's Feast, so I am thrilled about this news. Happy masquing to all!

I seem to remember that in prior years, the Lady in Lilac and An Encounter at the Feast become pinned storylets instead of opportunity cards toward the end of the Feast. Was that the case? And if so, can we get a confirmation/denial that it would work this way this year?

I shan't be able to play reliably for the majority of the feast, and knowing this would take away a lot of the headache from the unceirtanty...

Adding the Deacon is a stroke of genius considering how popular the character was the first time around.

So you need to finish an ES to get a new companion? This is interesting and I wonder if there are any other Fate costs associated to it.

I took it to mean that you can learn more about the character themselves, not that it would necessarily be a prerequisite to buying them. I expect the Deacon to be locked behind the usual high Masquing paywall instead...

You need to finish the ES to know who he is, not to actually get him.
However, his masquing cost might be high.

Yes, thought the same, but had some doubts!

Want to remind you all that this time of the year, you can get rid of the devils by skipping to the end of the An Intimate of Devils story without selling your soul.

Using one of the Feast card's option (from A dance with devils! branch), you gain, on average 0.8 CP of the required quality and to get from level 15 to level 18 you need 51 CP so, on average 64 cards.

Thanks to Sir Wensleydale of Hardwick for pointing that you can use one of the two level 12 cards to increase this quality to level 15 without taking any risks.

Let me expand it with a copy+paste from Discord user umbral:

Unblemished Exile's Rose (200 Inklings of Identity): +1 Dreaded Weapon
Lemurian's Mask (50 Intriguing Snippets): +1 Bizarre Hat
Liberalian Mask (20 Fate): +1 Shadowy, +1 Dreaded Hat

Thank you! I would love a set of Martyr's Bones but since I got the also BiS tea set, I will check the Deacon's cost first...
As for how to get rid of the devil cards... you mean, permanently? For good?

I have deduced that the optimum grind for getting 200 Inklings Items (But really it's just the Roses) is to just go to watchmakers Hill and grind for 30000 Proscribed Materiel there that way you get enough Inklings to send someone 15 Roses, which should convert to enough Masquing on the 13th to get anything that isn't Fate Locked.

Oh. Well. I guess I SHOULDN'T HAVE TAKEN MY CHANCES WITH A DEVILESS TWO DAYS AGO, THEN, SHOULD I?
It's also possible to raise An Intimate of Devils beyond 20 this year. Mine is at twenty (why?!...), and I gained CP from the action.
Also, you can get to 15 without risk, if you skip all Serious Offers. I tried to do that.

Yes, without having to "lose" your soul to them.

Oh, nice, nice! Never played the story so far and I didn't know about this option! Frigging neat! I'll edit the post, thanks!

So you can get beyond 20? This is great and I need a new achievement! Probably 21 will be a good start.
