One of the Airs of London-based options for Literary Ambitions in Veilgarden has a Dauntless Temperance Campaigner asking for a hymn to sobriety from someone who can "bang two rhymes together". The accompanying artwork is… unflattering. Me, I much prefer the portrait from her debut in this recent election. Rawr!
[quote=Anne Auclair]Besides the affair with the cat, you could run into her while incredibly drunk[/quote]When and how does this happen? I don’t know of any options to get drunk for getting drunk’s sake.
[quote=Anne Auclair]she might bring you potato soup when you were convalescing at home (awwww)[/quote]Yeah, the potato-soup visit is completely adorable. This lady warms my murderous, irrigo-mantled heart.
[quote=Anne Auclair]and during Hallowmas she would harass you to come clean with the Haunted Doctors confession.[/quote]Oh, is that so? I was unaware that her murky ties to the anarchists existed prior to the election event. Cool! Makes me wonder how far in advance they picked the election candidates… perhaps next year’s have already been chosen?
[quote=Anne Auclair]All in all, until the Election she was a very underused background character with a great deal of potential. So it’s really nice to see her again.[/quote]I wholeheartedly agree. She feels very three-dimensional and alive. Much more than just a cardboard cutout with a slogan-painted sign, she has aspirations and motives and personality and friendships and old associates and family. I wonder, will Chuffy McAvoy-Dauntless appear in this year’s Hallowmas content? He was last seen at Fruits of the Zee on Mutton island, upending a vicar XD
[quote=Anne Auclair]It’s a little funny, in a sad way, how the Campaigner is the only customer frequenting that cafe between Spite and Ladybones. Even when she’s surrounded by a crowd, she always has this air of loneliness about her. Which makes her shunning the unnamed Tomb Colonist all the sadder. He was probably one of her few real friends. But then, it’s hard to forgive someone who messed with your family.[/quote]Now that you mention it, she really does seem that way. I think it may be that she believes so strongly in her cause that she never entirely allows herself to relax. The tomb-colonist is fully reformed, but now that DTC knows his past misdeeds she wouldn’t be able to forgive herself for continuing to see the fellow.
Aww. Now I’m sad. I want to give the Campaigner a big hug.
A query: has there been anything in past years for those who did not spend any confessions? As a midnighter my character is very big on burying secrets in that grave from which there is no return, but as a player I also don’t want to skip a festival’s worth of content for no reason.
