2. The Manager of the Royal Beth. London is one big madhouse, so we need a man with some experience. And charisma. And I wonder what political intrigues he may be up to as May.

The ultimate election in my opinion.

Monsieur Pleat, the Honey-Addled Detective, and the Manager of the Royal Beth... So, two mentally unstable candidates, and a third candidate trying to lock them both up?

I'm sorry, but which one is supposed to be mentally stable again?

Hmm... the electorate? (Questionable, too.)

There's a problem here. Generally, in the Neath, we assume that the handles, however prosaic, belong to one person. It's not always requisite--there's nothing in game to say that the Sardonic Music-Hall Singer I'm friends with is the same one that you know--but most of the time these are taken as names, in some cases (e.g. the Implacable Detective) without question.

The Fidgeting Writer, though... whichever way that story ends, it is highly unlikely that the Fidgeting Writer you meet this time around is the same one you helped out (or failed to) last time. And yet you can do that story repeatedly. Ergo, London must have an endless supply of Fidgeting Writers around falling afoul of sinister figures behind mirrors.

The Manager himself states and shows you that there are many Fidgeting Writers. The only cure he's found is giving them lots of drugs and keeping them away from pens.

Forget about political parties, let's have partying candidates instead:
  • The Rubbery Entrepreneur! He will revitalize London's flagging economy, and improve relationships between the different races!
  • The Turkish Girl (ahem, that's the Turkish Lady to you)! She'll will this race easily, and Londoners will dance with delight!
  • The Whiskered Admiral! An experienced military veteran, he'll keep London safe against the encroaching corsairs of the Iron Republic!

This close to the election, it might be better to make a preliminary 1898 candidate thread.

If you really want to see a Rubbery mayor, what you need to be lobbying for is a named Rubbery Man to show up, so that we can then talk about him as a real candidate.

I think this would be a great opportunity to develop the Tentacled Entrepreneur, he seems like an interesting fellow. A clay candidate would also be an interesting possibility.

I'd say that can wait until after we see who the candidates are this year. There's little point in campaigning for a favored NPC that may actually be ineligible because they did in fact already run for 1897.

I'm pretty sure it is going to be narrowed down to a Rubbery Man, an Unfinished Clay Man, and a Drownie.

I would honestly support "Mrs Frontispiece" (actually Mr. Pages) as a candidate just for the sheer resulting zanyness that would follow.

  • I would also support any great game candidates in general given that we have't had any yet and the fact that there are no real barriers if you think about it, and the Waltzing Duke in particular, in order to further explore his connection to salt, seeking, and the neath's deeper mysteries in general (I can't find them now but supplementary sources say it's him here, and not your captain.)

  • That candidacy would be very plausible. After all, Slowcake did something similar!

    I would love a Foreign Office candidacy. The question is, though, would it be [spoiler]one faction or both? Would be hilarious if the candidacy couldn't agree on anything.[/spoiler]

    I was more thinking about the sheer hilarity that would result from it actually happening, although I can't really imagine the foreign office trying to do that, given that they are loyal to London. I would prefer having another great game candidate, such as the waltzing duke or the Prussian fellow, as stated above. They haven't had a candidate before, and both Mr. Slowcake and feduci have showed that such a campaign would indeed be very plausible.
