Most intruiging ellipsis, Lady Catherine - might you ellaborate, or specify, slightly - perhap in spoiler aside - as to these "private activities", mayhap?

Curious & curiouser, as, i too looked forward to some active Journalism and Press to engage with, this season - AND, having rather sloughed off most of the Hallows, inadverdantly, i would savour lingering resolves and reviews of the Festivities - OR, even, merely to cultivate whatever these "activities" may be.


Ah, also - do we know what will become of any Masque Masks we yet have as "Seasonal" attributes? Have but an un-masqued Demon-face, myself - would really have prefferred to have started with the Moth guise - as i failed to attend any masque, nevermind the "trifecta" of all three. Thus, a souvenier mask is welcome - much as i'd hope to trade one for another. Will they remain, or be returned to their vendors, as a cached civic resource, does anyone know?

As you'll know from your experience, Doctor, the Masques all involved a lot of serious drinking and general licentiousness. The Pavilion of Butterflies (associated with the Moth Mask) at which I spent all my time involved some activities that left the participants' hands red. The text coyly suggests that fingerpainting was involved, but I suspect the real substance in question was blood. Ah, if only the text had been more explicit!

If you want further details, you can look through my Journal; I am cathyr19355 in Fallen London; the link in my signature block should work.

By the way, I forgot to mention how I liked the new home conforts + cards mechanics. I hope to see more examples of this in the future.

Do we need to equip 'A Seat At The Bishop's Table' in order for the new card (Attend a dinner at St Fiacre's) to show up in the deck? Or does simply owning the un-equipped item work for these new post-Hallowmas cards?

You need to equip it.

The card doesn't unlock with having "A Seat At The Bishop's Table", but by having "Noticed by the Saturnine Duke", which is one of the effects when equipping it.

The same goes for the other two Affiliations.

Thanks, dov! Equipment based cards is an excellent way to allow players to customise their own decks. Now if only all those annoying cards could be de-equipped... :P

Well it ain't perfect. If a lot of equipment had properties that added cards to your deck, people would have to get naked for drawing and reequip stuff for playing, which could get obnoxious.

Ah yes, blood, clearly. But was it blood of human beings? Or something else altogether? Mayhap bloody tears Heaven itself cries in the realms of Is-Not, mourning the doomed rulers whose realms can never extend beyond the mirrors to simply Be?

As my last recap for the season, I wish to once again express utmost satisfaction with all aspects of this year's Hallowmas, not least being the nifty new affiliations. When you've been flipping endgame cards for several years, every new card face is an exciting change from the routine!

Indeed. I recently started an alt to do "Bag a Legend", and I'd completely forgotten how rich and varied the early deck is.

Each of the three Masques has a card. I think you get the card associated with the host of the Masque you attended the most (at least I did). In my case, that was the Queen of Air and Darkness.

Now there's an interesting dynamic. Most endgame players are actively trying to get cards out of their decks, so as to see the most desirable ones more regularly. However, the more we succeed at that, the more monotonous (and less interesting) card flipping becomes.

Or we have found a cellar full of delicious cherry jam (and, alas, no spoons).

Alas! Had I only thought to taste the redness!

This is probably not the right place for this discussion, but each level of making your name (4 varieties) opens up a bunch of new cards, some in groups with their own little stories. And each area has stories linked to the quality levels. I've been trying not to progress too quickly so as not to miss any of the long-forgotten (or possibly never seen) tales and details. A lot of hints that would make no sense the first time around now fit perfectly and reveal greater and more sinister depths.

So... I acquired the Bishop of St Fiacre home comfort. I equipped it. I should be getting the card at some point, no?
Is it old art I might be discarding or something? It has been weeks.

You should draw the card at some point. I've draw it two or three times since the end of Hallowmas.

It doesn't seem to come up that often, but I've had it probably twice over a week.

Do we have any estimation for when the Hallowmas branch in One's Public will get updated (or if it would be updated at all)? It's been a week since The Fool's Justice storylet closed...

My hope that something will happen on that front has dwindled. I guess if nothing happens next week, then they'll just keep it as is.
