Posts of Ratmas past: 2013 2014 2015 2016 the first

It's the seventh of December! That means it's that time of the year again where we perform the sacred (sacrat?) rite of Ratmas, i.e. sending as many rats as possible to any Failbetter employees we can reach in order to convey our appreciation and/or horror.

Since last Ratmas our former principal rattee is no longer among their number, but Ratifer Maximus Spacemarine has ascended the chain. Spacemarine9 has departed for parts unknowable. Clonemurines are still among us: http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Spacemarine10

What can be sent?

Rats, obviously. On strings, of glory, whatever. We're not prescriptivists here. Send whatever you can foist on your postman, it's the spirit and not the letter that counts. For instance: While postmen will refuse to deliver rats to The Void, Christmas cards will arrive anywhere, as legend foretold.


Who else is Accepting Further Rats?

Paul, new top hat, old art hand: http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/misterarendt_failbetter

Hannah, who would never undeliver any messages: http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Hannah%20Failbetter

Chris, chief of making stuff up: http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/CHGardiner or http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/profile/Chris%20Gardiner

Adam, the grey eminence: http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Sebastian%20Flyte

Olivia, smiter of puns: http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Moomin

If there are any other FBG profiles I'm not aware of, add them below.

If you need additional help or inspiration, the previous Ratmas posts will provide.



Merry Ratmas! Be fruitful and multiply the number of rats in the world. May they fill the earth and the zee and the sky.

Have a ratty time my fellows!
Let me also remind everyone of Spacemarine9's own ratty experience, Rat Sending Simulator 2kxx(A rather short sighted name). It is the premier in rat-related storynexus entertainment.

We might or might not get a Rat of Glory in the Advent Calendar. Possibly the Dec 7 door, but we can't be sure.

And don't forget to make your (living, though you can always bury the dead) rats happy at least once a year, don't forget that rats are what's left when you destroy evil from a living creature.

We're just showing our appreciation in the manner of cats, which is the best manner in which to do anything.

Mx. Aglow. Silverer, hedonist, devil-teaser. Paramount Presence. Earned their Heart's Desire and realized too later what it was they truly wished for.

Ms. Lilian Leith. A lady of proper standing, which seems like an increasingly ludicrous thing to give a rat's ___ about. Known to some for her Light Fingers, and to others for her abiding affection for stormy weather.

Well how about that! FBG pre-emptively ratmas'd us. I guess we owe them a returned favor.

This is glorious:

Rat butts roasting on an open fire
Big Rat nipping at your nose
Rat-tide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up in irrigos

Everybody knows a ratcorpse and some lacre snow
Help make the season right
Tiny rats with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know Ratgoat's on his way
He's loaded lots of traps and poison on his sleigh
And every Faber's child is going to spy
In the hopes that they won't die

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To rats from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times in many ways
A very scary Ratmas to you
(Posted here originally.)

Merry Ratmas Everyone!

Old king Alexis looked out
On the feast of Ratmas
When the rats were piled about
And he felt quite hapless

Moonish was the light that night
And the bats were shrieking
When some strange soul came in sight
His cart of rats a'squeaking

"Hither, Chris, and stand by me
If thou know'st it, speaking
Yonder madman, who is he?
And why's he rats a'heaping?"

"Sire, he is called Space Marine
He’s rallied all the forum
To send rats in numbers obscene
To try break thy decorum”

“Firstly go put up a sign:
No more rats accepting
Then send to him a candle fine
His passion’s worth respecting”

Team and monarch watched him then
They saw he was not daunted
And when Ratmas came round again
The team by rats were haunted

“Sire, all our delicious friends
Their spirits are inspired
For Space Marine, he recommends
That rats are now required”

“Gather round now, my good team
We can’t appeal to reason
Ratmas has become a theme
Integral to this season”

And so the team embraced the trend
The holiday was declared
Rats poured in from every friend
And not a team member spared

Therefore, Neathy friends, be sure
In Ratmas be believing
Send rats to the rich and poor
And rats you’ll be receiving

Mr. Mercutio
Immortal. Rich. Only moderately insane.

Want a taste of immortality? Reach out to me in-game to ask for a sip of Hesperidean Cider. Please follow Ocelot's guide to asking here.

New to our dark city? Send me a message in-game and I will respond when I can with a welcome gift!

I welcome most social actions, so feel free to send them to me. Just please don't ask me to Loiter Suspiciously or to help with the Affluent Photographer. I have disavowed all knowledge of her.

Only a few hours 'til midnight folks. Let's keep this Ratmas running!
What a quirky tradition. It seems one year isn't enough to learn everything about the Neath is it?

, a most fascinating Lady of the Neath who finds herself mingling with Society and aligning with Criminals. This Licentiate Extraordinaire would love to align with the Masters, given the chance. A Shattering Force.
Huarwar Ceiswyr, a Welshman and detective lured to the Neath to Seek. The toll it has taken does not hide itself, nor does he bother to. On hiatus.

Open to all actions, delicious friends. Messages required prior to harmful ones. PM for hints Enigmatic.

She wishes for nothing more than to be close to the Masters, for who else can unlock the Mysteries of the Neath?
