It’s 1895 and Jenny’s time as Mayor is up—a new Mayor will be chosen!
The Election is free and is open to all players. It will begin Monday 26th June. Players will have two delicious weeks to choose an Election career and bolster support for their chosen candidate through a variety of actions. At the end of the first week of Election, we will announce which candidate is ahead. The final day of Election will be Monday 10th July.
This year, as part of the Fallen London Reworks, there will be new ways players can amplify their vote through social activities. Some methods will allow players to work cooperatively together to support their candidates, while others are more competitive in nature.
Join the revelry through the “An Invitation to a Ball” storylet, available throughout London. The three candidates up for the 1895 Election are:
- The Dauntless Temperance Campaigner
- The Implacable Detective
The elected Mayor will reign for one year, after which another election will be held. The winning candidate will have a Mayoral influence in your Opportunity Deck until next year’s election, so consider who you support carefully. After the festival, there will be an opportunity to suggest candidates you’d like to see take up a Mayoral campaign for 1896.
No Election is complete without fliers, political cartoons, and other such materials. We invite you all to create and share your own!
This year we are also trying something new with the 1895 candidate posters, which we will be thrilled to announce next Monday when the festival opens.
We cannot wait to see who you will choose, delicious friends…
