Sinning Jenny’s time is up, a new Mayor will be chosen! This week, we announce the three candidates who think they can do a better job. Whom will you support?

Today we announce the second candidate!


The Dauntless Temperance Campaigner is a fixture among London's social reformers. It seems she now has her sights on London! She bears the slogan: “Teatime for London.”



All manner of temperance campaigners flock to her emerald banners. Reformed poets, well-meaning members of Society and deacons and deaconesses of the Church walk in procession through the streets. “What I want, dearie, is for London to pull its socks up. For everybody!” She smiles and gives you a firm handshake.



The week will end with an announcement regarding the full details of the festival, which will begin Monday the 26th of June and run for two weeks.

I am torn. On one hand I abhor such prescriptive joyless curtailment of life's bounties but I do like tea.

Take the pledge? I'd just as soon slit me own throat. Time to barricade and loophole the pub, lads. They're trying to take away the working man's one small respite from the grind of life.

Well, that narrows it down to two candidates and makes the choice easier, at least. smile

Well, I guess there's no doubt as to who I'm supporting.

And omigawd, her portrait is so adorable! ^^

I do love the portrait, as well.

I find she reminds me too much of Professor Umbridge to ever trust, and I have a feeling we'll be uncovering a lot of dark secrets about her as the election moves on . . . it'll be interesting, as I certainly do hope we can have as critical and objective debates about her as we did Jenny last year, as it'd be good to see such exploration of FL's characters.

Still . . . I can't help but feel more indifferent than last year, but I think maybe that's less about the characters and more just about the election itself and its mechanics/end-results. I do look forward to future side-stories, though, such as we had with Jenny's Finishing school, and - must say - Feducci and the DTC could lead to some excellent side-stories.

Oh dear god, no. Just no. I found who I won't vote for, at least.

The name doesn't ring a bell. Feducci is still my first choice (unless companions, of course).

She just reminds me too much of my old teacher. I hated that woman with passion.

Well, if she pushes the whole temperance business as far as actually proposing prohibition, certain parties will definitely benefit.

Wouldn't surprise me at all if the Cheery Man or the Gracious Widow are lurking behind this particular curtain.

Oh, she might be surprisingly fun to learn about. I'm probably more likely to lean towards Feducci than DTC, but I'll leave an open mind for whatever the actual election might reveal (plus the third unrevealed candidate).

Well... Nobody likes temperance, right? We all know how that turned out. But at least she's not a spooky immortal-ish spy for evil turtle people.

I'm not saying the Presbyrate's ruled by turtles, by the way. Just... living for a few hundred years, I mean, look what happens to people after only 100! Just saying, there's probably a reason Candidate #1 rocks the tomb-colonist look.

Feducci is Raphael of TMNT in disguise. Headcanon accepted.

I think one of the hallowmas options talked about how she blamed Mr Wines for a death. So I always thought she was a revolutionary trying to weaken Wines' economic base.

Some of you are taking your role-playing too seriously.

That said, if she wins, you may well get a card that helps you grind Favour: Church or Favour: Society later. Perhaps, if she wins, Failbetter would churn out that Favour/Renown revamp for The Church and/or Society a lot earlier - more content for all of us, especially the long-timers.

(Of course, if Feducci wins, we may well get a card that gives Favours: Tomb-Colonies. This might be more desirable to newer players. Better yet, his card might just give Favour: The Great Game - he's not exactly a London native, after all.)

P.S. On the other hand, if she wins but Failbetter slogs along with the Favour/Renown revamp for The Church and her card merely gives Connected: Society or Connected: Church, that would just be dissatisfactory. Yeah... Can't risk that kind of disappointment by voting for her, really.

Not all anti-Masters sentiment comes from anarchists, y'know? A cardigan-wearing, church-going, tea-drinking respectable sort like the Campaigner might still have every reason for opposing Wines' influence on London.

I'm surprised to find that she might have already brought me several "hearty potato-soups for the convalescent", and paid me several times for my poems, but I didn't even remember her name... Sorryupset
