The Feast of the Exceptional Rose is upon us! Visit the Shopkeeper in Viric for a trancelike taste of forbidden romance! Show your affection or scorn through unexpected and creative gifts! What will the season have in store for you?


Rewards from the Feast can be won by increasing Masquing. Raise your Masquing through participating in the revels and the exchange of gifts. Later in the festival, use Masquing to unlock unique companions.


Discover all the festival has to offer on Celebrate the Feast of the Exceptional Rose, available throughout London.


Visit the Shopkeeper in Viric


“All our Phantasies are made to measure.”


Longing for a taste of what might have been? Yearning for someone you could never possess?


Recently licensed for the public, the Shopkeeper in Viric peddles trance-dreams which offer a vision – less than sleep, more than a daydream – of a false-wedding to a major London figure.


Begin in Veilgarden, where you’ll find the Shopkeeper. For 20 Masquing, you’ll receive a dream of a love impossible, presented across three opportunity cards.


There are some additional options within the dreams for those of you with the following professions: Midnighter, Licentiate, Crooked-Cross or Monster-Hunter.


There is no limit on how many dreams you can purchase. You may be tempted to dream away the whole Feast…


New Companions


Companions in Fallen London – be they romantic, platonic, animal or mineral – offer boosts to your stats, and little stories. The Feast of the Exceptional Rose is an ideal opportunity to meet new ones.


This year there are a handful of new companions to choose from, available in exchange for Masquing:
  • Develop a more personal rapport with Dr Schlomo
  • Discuss improbable anatomy with A Debonair Paleontologist



And for higher levels of Masquing, which require you to receive a gift that was bought with Fate:


  • Help a Countess of Thorns acclimatise to the rude environs of London
  • Listen to the war songs of A Crimson Captain
  • Go drink for drink with Captain Amelia Whitlock

Tokens of love! Tokens of scorn!


Exchange gifts with other players to show them the truth of your heart! Or something more enigmatic. A glass of teeth by any other name would rattle as sweetly.


Your accrued gifts can be kept for sentimental reasons, or exchanged for different amounts of Masquing.


Make friends for the exchange of gifts on the Failbetter forum and our Discord.


The Lady in Lilac


“You are desired,” she says. “Give me the proof of it, and I’ll make arrangements.”


The enigmatic Lady in Lilac visits London during the Feast of the Exceptional Rose.


From the 13th of February, you will be able to draw the Lady in Lilac from your opportunity deck, allowing you to trade in your feast-gifts for Masquing. You’ll also be able to turn in your Masquing for special companions on the Encounters at the Feast card.


The Lady in Lilac and Encounters at the Feast will remain available until the 24th of February, after which your remaining Masquing will be converted to Making Waves when Time, the Healer visits.


You will still be able to visit Clathermont’s, exchange gifts for Masquing and collect companions until the end of the Feast, on the 24th of February.


Skin-bound memories!


How better to prove your devotion than through permanent ink? High time for a visit to Clathermont’s Tattoo Parlour!


A unique story involving the Neath’s famed tattooists is available for the duration of the Feast.


Find the Clathermonts in Ladybones Road when you have A Name in Seven Secret Alphabets at 4 or higher.


Continue this story from the same area by playing News at Clathermont’s from 13th February.


Premium Story: The Brass Grail


Scandal in London as the Bishop of Southwark is summoned to court. Old sins weigh heavily upon the mitred head. Can one ever truly escape the shadow of Hell?


This winter’s premium story by Nigel Evans is now available on the Fate page, for 35 Fate.


Your key dates for the festival are:


6th February – Festival Opens
13th February – Masquing can be exchanged for companions
20th February – Gift-giving and feast activities close
24th February – Exchanging gifts for Masquing, the Clathermont story and meeting companions close

Dr Schlomo? This is going to be interesting! For me, this Feast looks like it's moving around a place of dreams!
If available, can any of the Lore masters share information about the rest?

Big thanks, FBG! Big Grin

There are four professions with additional options. There are four dreams to purchase. I see some connections. I'll be flipping cards like mad looking for masquing, and RNG willing, I'll report back to y'all what a Crooked-Cross can do with/to/under the nose of the Bishop.

I just started on a trance-dream of the Widow, and I'm loving the new content already! From what I can see of the Widow path, it looks like there are a few options to customise the dream, so it looks like there's going to be quite a bit of different pathways and new content to uncover. I'll love to see the other trance dreams if anyone has picked them.

Does offering others gifts, then cancelling no longer net you the gift that was to be sent? I tried it with a couple of items but can't find them in my inventory.

I think this was only implemented for fate-bought gifts.

I'm ready and open to receive gifts, and will reciprocate them in kind!

EDIT: Wow, didn't expect so many generous peeps! I'll send gifts as I get my actions back. If you don't get a gift back from me, I either missed you in the mass of gifts or you're stuck somewhere I can't reply back to.

I'm really looking forward to this dream content! As for the new companions...

Shrive would be delighted to exchange tokens of appreciation with any and all who so desire.

<3

Edit: My heart bursts from a plethora of new friends! However, my purse feels the pinch of gift giving; though I am, naturally, delighted to make your acquaintance, for the moment I shamefully must admit that I no longer have the means to return any generous gestures of gifts. I hope you understand that, being a newcomer to the city, my enthusiasm runs far deeper than my pockets.

Is this a change from previous years? I had a bunch of masquing already today.

You may well have had leftover Rose gifts--there is no need to turn them in, if you don't want. But you should not have had the actual Masquing quality--last year, as this year, it's supposed to turn to Making Waves after the end of the Feast. So you may have a bug.

I had this happen as well, started the day with what I presume was my leftover Masquing from last year. I'm perfectly happy with that, though!
