One downside to Feducci's history is that a comprehensive profile requires three letters, so it's a tad action intensive. Still, I think it would be worthwhile to send this to every Feducci supporter we can.

EDIT: Removed the links and the Nemesis stuff, added SPOILER warnings.

***


(1) THE TRUTH ABOUT FEDUCCI - SPOILER WARNINGS -

Feducci makes grand promises to bring about a fairer London, but his character and past actions cast grave doubts as to whether he actually believes what he says.

Feducci is a false-Tomb Colonist, an invincible immortal man wrapped in stolen bandages who feigns a limp and a cough. He presents himself in such a way so he can lure people into his private fighting club and slaughter them in a duel to the permanent death. Duels to the death where the reigning champion cannot possibly be harmed, let alone killed, are hardly fair by any definition of the word. And of course Feducci is not content the advantages granted by his invincibility, he also goes to his duels proudly astride a warhorse in order to face opponents who fight on foot.

Feducci has had so many of these dishonest duels and has slaughtered so many unsuspecting opponents that he goes into battle with his arms wrapped in black ribbons:

“If that were not bad enough, his arms are swathed in enough black ribbons to hide his bandages. There are dozens of them: how many of his own society has he killed?”

Each of those ribbons taken from a man or woman who Feducci permanently murdered in an unfair, thoroughly one-sided duel.

___

(2) SPOILERS - When not permanently killing lesser mortals for sport, Feducci serves as the Presbyters Agent in London. Feducci’s clandestine activities are whispered about by former associates, talked about in the Flit, and smugly hinted at by the man himself. He is also regularly seen delivering reports and relics to Presbyter zailors. Feducci, in his capacity as the Presbyter’s Agent, regularly commissions the murder of London citizens, particularly those whose existence is condemned by Holy Presbyterate Law.

As the recent election campaign has established, Feducci is being paid by the Presbyter for these services. These payments are laundered through under-zee commercial transactions. How this works: Feducci invests in a speculative venture that a London company is hoping to make with the government controlled Licensed Exchange at Adam’s Way. The Presbyterate government then agrees to and insures that this venture is profitable. There was never any possibility of Feducci losing his "investment."

OOC: For a version with links, see this post here: http://community.failbettergames.com/topic24493-the-truth-about-feducci.aspx

_____

(3) SPOILERS - Just as he has clothed himself in an aura of unearned courage, fighting duels that cannot possibly hurt him, Feducci has cultivated a reputation as a winner by repeatedly gambling with loaded dice. And yet this man promises to even the odds in London?

The Presbyter is getting something for all this money – that is obvious. If Feducci becomes Mayor he will be indebted for his success to an unfriendly foreign power that lays claim to territories held by London!

Lastly, Feducci has a terrible record when it comes to the people who put their trust in him. We’ve already documented how he treats his fellow duelists in the Black Ribbon – as pawns and disposable amusements! But this goes back a long way. When he still resided on the Elder Continent, Feducci went on a pilgrimage to the brambled city of Arbour:

“Feducci was a celebrated figure, attended by lovers, well-wishers and flatterers. Many begged to accompany him, and a company of seventy-seven embarked with pennants, wine, and song.

…One by one, Feducci's companions fell, but he refused to turn back. When he reached the rosebrick gate, he was alone.”

So ask yourself, would a false gambler like Feducci wager on the odds he has given you – that electing a cheater and schemer would somehow make London a fairer place? We both know the answer to that.

I am going to a party for the Campaigner.

I have literally not gone to a party once since I first tried the mechanic and decided I couldn't stand it. The DTC's worth it, everyone!

I've decided that I will be offering a parcel of First City coins apiece to newcomers to the forum, for the rest of the week. Not out of campaign funds, just off my own bat in the way of amenity and a general welcoming spirit.

Because if we're going to be that nice lot over there, I'd like to live up to the reputation.

edit: naturally I will be pointing out that they can get *more* goodies and support from us. But it seems like the right thing for this campaign, you know?

Oh that. I thought it would be something more fun.

I've been looking at your journal and I definitely need to get me a whirling contraption so I can publish papers too! What else have I been missing as I grind through flash lays?!

There's also Investigating a Campaign. Those are cheap and fun.

Anne, would you consider posting the truth about Feducci on tumblr? There's a fair amount of Londoners there and failbetter's official blog reblogs election posts, so we could reach a wider audience!

Hello all! laseule would much appreciate some help with Nightmares, as they're having trouble sleeping. Also being an Agitator has apparently painted a rather large target on their back, driving up all of their Menaces to an unfortunate degree.

Hello, good folks. It is my first proper participation in elections; I've chosen to be a Campaigner. I am willing to offer donations, please, message Ezleen. Also, accepting them.
Is there anything else I can do?

Check the Google doc in the first post. You can add your name, a link to your profile, and your career. Not to mention whether you're willing to give donations. Very useful, quite a good idea. Our organizer was quite clever in making it.

Though it is a bit out of character, I picked Fixer over Campaigner. Feel free to add me to your contacts - I also donate generously when needed.

Now, what is this about a paper and the party? How do I take advantage of those? I cannot find a thing in the forums, somehow.

You can punish a special election edition of your newspaper in Doubt Street. There's also an option at the end of parties when you have Talk of the Town 12 that lets you gain election resources.


The paper requires, well, a newspaper, while the party is an opportunity card (A polite invitation).
