...You know, I did more thinking about the Campaigner's crying. It shows how damn much the woman really cared. She wasn't running for personal gain, like a certain other candidate. She genuinely thought she could do some good and wanted to make the city better. And the city disappointed her, rejected her, spat upon her desire to help it. And yet she still fights on.

God bless the Dauntless Temperance Campaigner. I may have a new candidate for favorite FL character now. This election has turned a minor character into one of the most badass old ladies in fiction.

Well, I appear to be still involved in a debate. I guess our characters overslept and haven't heard the result. Or they just don't care. We've talked about putting on a play for the people who have turned up instead.

Meh.

Feducci was simply more 'Fallen London' than the two other candidates, who were mostly defined by their quite reasonable but rather boring politics. If you ask around in the real world, most people are sure to find politics boring. Don't be fooled by the loud minority that enjoys arguing politics online. Those people do not represent the vast majority.

And it wasn't until the flash lays and investigations changed for the second week that Feducci appeared incompetent. Maybe he felt that it was too easy, so he lost interest, and didn't properly defend against a smear campaign perpetrated by sneaky agents and bribed campaign workers? Since I didn't bother doing either investigations or flash lays it didn't really matter to my character, but I myself believed that FBG just wanted to experiment and see if they could make more people change their votes this election. The Implacable Detective actually seemed like a pretty good choice after half the Constables had left. But I still remember disagreeing with her in the Dilmun Club. And that is serious business. Maybe support from the Last Constable could've swayed me though. Maybe.

In the first election I supported Sinning Jenny because she'd been doing a lot of nice things for me before, so I felt she deserved my support. In this election I supported Feducci because I don't particularly care about organised temperance or the Constables. I still maintain that the Implacable Detective could've gained more support by having her banners carried by trained monkeys. Because that would have been a sight to behold, and made her much more 'Fallen London'. Consider that a tip for next year's candidates: If you're not 'Fallen London' enough already, surround yourself with an army of trained animals. Most of us have an entire zoo at home. Show that you too are a Fallen Londoner!

Well, I see that the evil candidate won. Just another ordinary day in the Neath :P But at least the winning candidate got under 50% of the vote this time.

I hope the Campaigner is the one providing opposition on Feducci's Mayoral Influence Card, just like the Bishop provided opposition last year ^_^ The Detective will have new Dilmun Club content to shine in, while the Campaigner won't have anything new unless they write an Exceptional Story with her, so the Campaigner seems the more deserving pick.

Well, Lady Byron's idea was splendid. I doubt if it could come to pass, but if Feducci wanted to at least put up a show, his card could be luck-based indeed.
Jenny's card gave favors all around but this was Jenny from the beginning: trying to keep everyone satisfied. The new mayor's card should somehow reflect the menace and the gambler he is written to be.

I don't think this is really in question. If the writers can't swing at least a noticeable percentage votes by gradually revealing information, then there is no point to having the Elections last two weeks.

Now its all done, I'd be curious to know who various London luminaries supported. I figuer the Cheery Man as a low key detective supporter, despite their obvious differences. I'd be curious to know who, if anybody, the functionary supported and part of me can't help but feel the Bishop would be a little conflicted 'I loath his associations with Hell, but I do like his 'Fight Everybody' policy. Hmmm.'

Feducci got under 50% of the vote, so a majority of Londoners did not vote for him. He's less popular than Jenny. Hence why this happens:

Feducci steps forward, offering the crowd a regal wave. Thundering roars of approval hail his victory, met equally by explosive jeers.

I think Feducci having the best hat also probably had an effect on his being chosen as most people's candidate. I try not to meta game this kind of event, so I went with DTC, because that's what my character would do. I was disappointed to later read that Feducci supporters got a BiS item that I could definitely have used, but oh well.

Anne. Anne, Anne, Anne. Your fervor and ferocity are assets on the campaign trail, but now we step back and let things be. There are so many new fights for us to pursue. Let us put down the old ones.

Feducci stands above them all, laughing.

Ah, maniacal laughter at one's victory. That's always a good sign :P

My dear if the reward was worth my esimated amount of echoes in items I'd take that gamble. But considering I have a lot of items both trash and treasure it'd have to be one hell of a prize.

I am rather curious as to why the spy for the presbatriate was elected. As to his winning, welp I time to go into overdrive on great gamers and find some more castigator venom. So many spys, so little time.
