They say it is never to early to start talking about the next election. Just for fun, who would you like to see running?

Personally I would like to see Mr Pages, since he is the only Master adorkable enough to run, as part of some latest plan for love storys.
I would also like to see His Amused Lordship. Because it's His Amused Lordship.

I still think Miriam Plenty would make a great Mayor. She's tough, wise, and we know from the longevity of the Carnival that she knows how to manage people and run things.

Oh my gosh I just had the best/worst idea and this might have already been thought of but...debate between the Topsy King and Mr Pages.
"Deliciforous friends! Do not listention to this liaud!"
"Nay, a goden most capering! Hines the walksies!"

The thing is, the candidate needs to be a recognizable NPC. Someone who rings enough bells for all players.

And having said that, players would probably vote for a rubbery, or a clay like the pirate-poet, but then it would shatter the whole 'pariah' status their storylines depend on.

The worst thing would be if the Topsy King and His Amused Lordship ran in the same year. I would have to choose between the two and that would be horrible.

The Elusive Countess. She is wealthy enough to fund a campaign, of obscure origin (so there is a possibility to expand on her story), and she seemingly everywhere at society events, thus well connected.

The Bohemian Sculptress. The first thing she tells you is not to forget the little people while you become famous. She must be well connected too, as she has a brother in the Foreign Office, made an allusion to knowing the Solitary Glim-Sculptor, and knows the way to Wilmot's end and Court.

The Tentacled Entrepreneur + Spokesperson: He can fund his campaign ('rich as Croesus'). Typically polite society would not let a Rubbery man run, but FBG can pull this off by making Society letting him run as a joke. Choosing the right spokesperson can then bend the story in the way FBG wants.

A docks character: Shipwreck Joe would give an interesting poster, and the Chandleress or the Salty Fabulist might make interesting candidates.

A Mr or Mrs Maywell: They say London's hat makers are the maddest of them all. And I want to learn more about the merchants.

Hey, while we're at it, how about the Repentant Forger? He's polite, personable, and intelligent, and his prior Criminal background means he really knows the slimy underbelly of the City! With any luck, he might swing a celebrity endorsement from the Contrarian! Though that might actually tank his campaign, come to think of it.

If we are to have a Tiger as a candidate, I think it should be one who lives here--the Tiger Keeper. I'm not sure my character would vote for him, mind you--but it would be fun to have him run.

I just had a genius idea: the Contrarian should run for re-election!

It's not been done before, but that's why he's Contrarian, after all. A candidate hadn't run twice before him, either. And being who he is, he would almost certainly run with yet another completely different platform, which would avoid having a repeat campaign and keep things fresh and new.

Mr. Slowcake was exceptional fun, but he wasn't the Great Game candidate that I was hoping for. Surveying London, the only well established Great Game character with the cover story to run for Mayor would be Mr Clathermont. So how about we nominate him?

Also, I think the Dauntless Temperance Campaigner deserves a second shot.

However, I'm not sure running for elected office would be his style.



Well, I've been on the record in favor of giving our Little Brothers the vote for a long time. But it's already a tough sell. Aside from sheer human bigotry, you'd have London's substantial pro-cat votership to deal with, and yeah, Patches isn't much of a public speaker.

Yet ... I have been longing for the Albino Rat to run, but I'm afraid that the pressures of the campaign might be a bit much for her. But as a team, they'd complement one another's weaknesses beautifully. She brings the eloquence, sophistication, high-mindedness; he brings the fire, the passion that comes from having hit rock bottom and being repeatedly stomped while he was down there, the stubbornness to keep fighting no matter how bad the odds look.

Oh, they'd quarrel and despair of one another all the time, but they'd come to respect one another and work as a team. Could love possibly bloom between such rats of distinctly opposite character? Stop me before I write this up for Mr. Pages' Fabularities!

As I do every year, I aggressively support the candidacy of the esteemed Doctor Carrywell. A natural philosopher of skill and renown, a master of the Neath's mysteries, and a subtle and conniving actor on the political stage. Sure, she's not especially popular or charismatic, but she's got a certain rough-edged charm and a passion for good coffee, which ought to endear her to the university crowd. There's no captain who could set a surer course for London's enlightenment.

    No love for Pages? He is so endearing though. He's like a giant dork who tries to compliment you on your carpet smile

    I mean...he TRIES. Whenever he interacts with people well...he tries! And it would endearing to watch him try to talk to people running for Mayor.

    I'm going to nominate Virginia, the Bishop of St Fiacre, and Monsieur Pleat when the thread goes up. Not as a trio - I don't think they'd be very balanced together - but any of the three would promise an interesting mayoral story for me to look forward to.

    Mrs Plenty

    In-character reasons to run: Being mayor, or even just running for mayor, would be a great boon for her business: campaign rallies at the Carnival! Her business and managerial acumen would make her a potent mayor. She is strong willed and not easily intimidated.

    Game-content reasons: I want more Carnival content! I would also like to read more of her backstory.

    The Ambitious Barrister

    In-character reasons to run: She’s ambitious for one thing. She’s also well connected throughout London, including all of the People of Some Importance … who could ask for a finer starting position to run from? As a barrister, she has a fine legal understanding of Mayoral powers.

    Game-content reasons: Character development.

    Political Tigress

    In-character reasons to run: Arrogance.

    Game-content reasons: The Court of the Wakeful Eye tie-ins! Fingerking tie-ins! Another coil of the Labyrinth!

    The big issue with non-humans running for election in-universe is the strong xenophobia that London feels towards its inhuman neighbors. In a city where devils are appalled, rubbery men are slaughtered by mobs, clay men are a borderline slave race, and species such as L.B.s and Snuffers are killed for sport, it can be presumed that only humans can hold office or vote. The loophole is that, so long as no one knows your candidate is secretly not a human or a stand-in for a non-human, all is well. Mr Slowcake is evidence of the fact, and characters such as Feducci and the Captivating Princess (one being an ubermensch of sorts and in league with a foreign power, the other with questionable legality as a candidate and questionable status as a human) show that anyone can run if they conceal their secrets well enough and people don't ask too many questions. Speaking of non-humans...

    I myself would love to see the Bishop of St Fiacre enter office! I wonder, though, what platform he would take. Would it be the reformation of London's underbelly? Government benefit for those less fortunate? Providing protection to London's inhuman citizens, and perhaps offering asylum to Snuffers with a similar attitude of "do no harm" like the Bishop? This last option would most likely fall under some secret agenda of the Bishop's, but I would love to see how his church connections would take on the position as caretakers for those who wish for a life without secrecy and murder.

    The soft-hearted Widow

    London's support for it's poorest and most suffering citizens isn't nearly anywhere it should be. The Urchins seem to be doing pretty okay mostly, but we can't ignore the misery of the lower working classes who really struggle to sustain themselves. The soft-hearted widow would be the ideal candidate to address these issues.
    I support her projects whenever she does some fund-raising but we need to think on a larger scale here.
    Make London great ag-... well great for the first time really. And for everyone.


    Someone rubbery, with tentacles preferably

    I love the idea of your player character running for mayor, but that would take a WHOLE lot of building to make work. Still, it would be fun. I also love the ideas of Jasper/Frank, a Rattus candidate, or literally anything Not human even though the obvious xenophobia already mentioned earlier would be a problem. I wish the Honey-Addled Detective had more story but I don't know if it would be in-character for him to run for mayor, but I've decided I don't particularly care and would vote for him anyway. I saw somewhere else the idea of an incognito Master, basically trying to look and act human but failing miserably and everyone knows its a Master and also probably Pages.

    Honestly, I love the Jovial Contrarian so much that I just want to see him make another comeback.

    (Well, not just - there are certainly other neat ideas in this thread that I'd really like to see! - but up against any of them, I'd likely vote for the Contrarian anyway.)

    Seconding what Dudebro Pyro said, he should run on another position that's radically opposed to the ones he's already espoused!

    Laissez-faire capitalism? Reasonable centrism? Unabashed support of the Masters and their otherworldly governance?

    I have to admit that that would make a great election line-up--The Topsy King and Mr. Pages! Everyone would be laughing too hard to vote, though. ;-)

    They can't run as the same candidate, but they could certainly form a *party* together, with one as a candidate and the other as chief advisor. Or they could create a new position of "Vice-Mayor."

    That said, I have questions! For a lot of us, one or both of them are DEAD, which would introduce all sorts of temporal paradox multi-verse conundrums. But since I love those things, I'm totally on board. wink

If there are any survivors or the story hasn't concluded, they don't want to actually be involved in the campaign but will let the Bruiser run in there names. The platform would be something along the lines of less animosity between the law and crime.


    What, you have been playing Fallen London for as long as you have and you still retain those silly prejudices against the dead? Arguably we are *all* dead here, just in different degrees. smile

    The Wit, the Countess and the Sculptress do sound like amazing choices, though I suspect we need to know more about their platforms...

    Their conflict is so personal that they get mad if the player (aka "the most important person in the game") intervenes. I don't think they'd let a henchman involve the entire city in their drama.

    I'm afraid, sweet multi-verse cop-out revivals would render most of FL tragedies pointless.

    That is an excellent point. By the way, the one detail about her that has always intrigued me is her involvement with the (second edition of) Knife and Candle. During that run of K&C, her card gave her some kind of messenger role with Moon League bouts, I think. Rather curious a thing for a Soft-Hearted lady, I thought.

    Is there any law that prevents non-humans from running? I doubt it, since they let Slowcake run.

    They let Slowcake of Slowcake's Exceptionals run, not a committee of devils. We doubt latter would have flown.

    The big issue with non-humans running for election in-universe is the strong xenophobia that London feels towards its inhuman neighbors. In a city where devils are appalled, rubbery men are slaughtered by mobs, clay men are a borderline slave race, and species such as L.B.s and Snuffers are killed for sport, it can be presumed that only humans can hold office or vote. The loophole is that, so long as no one knows your candidate is secretly not a human or a stand-in for a non-human, all is well. Mr Slowcake is evidence of the fact, and characters such as Feducci and the Captivating Princess (one being an ubermensch of sorts and in league with a foreign power, the other with questionable legality as a candidate and questionable status as a human) show that anyone can run if they conceal their secrets well enough and people don't ask too many questions. Speaking of non-humans...



    That was my point, yep

    Probably, though his de jure domain is limited to the Flit.

    Thing is, they'd go best together: The Lord and the King, snobs verses slobs, Palace verses Flit, that sort of thing.

    I’d say the Tentacled Entreupenuer, the Muffled Intriguer, the Laconic Progidy, and the Ambitious Barrister. Though I have the Barrister as an alt, so would she become Mayor too?
