The Feast of the Exceptional Rose is upon us! Show your affection or scorn through unexpected and creative gifts! Love is as faceted as the jewel in a betrothal-ring. What will the season have in store for you?
It seems even the Revolutionary Firebrand and the Secular Missionary are feeling the effects of romance this year. You’ll also find two new rose-gifts, four new companions, and some new married excursions for spouses from Foreign Office!
Send and receive gifts from other players!
This year, express your adoration or scorn with two new rose-gifts. Etch your opinions in the cranium of an Inscribed Skull! Or does the object of your passion enjoy luxury? Travel? Brimstone? Then a One-Way Ticket to Hell on the 12:15 from Moloch Street may be the perfect gift!
Rewards from the Feast can be won by increasing your Masquing, through participating in the revels and the exchange of gifts. Use your Masquing quality to unlock unique companions later in the festival once Lady Lilac arrives. The 1896 Feast features four new delightful companions to choose from!
Make friends for the exchange of gifts on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit or on the forum. Please feel free to use #ExceptionalFeast on other channels to alert other players of your desire for gifting.
How better to prove your devotion than through permanent inked sentiments at Clathermont’s Tattoo Parlour!
A unique story involving the Neath’s famed tattooists, the Clathermont Family 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. As part of the Feast, continue this story from the same area by playing News at Clathermont’s from 12th February.
THE LADY IN LILAC
That winter, you saw the woman in the lilac dress everywhere…Did she approach you, or did you approach her, in the end? Certainly she looked you straight in the eye. “You are desired,” she says. “Give me the proof of it, and I’ll make arrangements.”
The enigmatic Lady in Lilac returns to London during the Feast of the Exceptional Rose.
On the 12th February we will be releasing the Lady in Lilac card into your opportunity deck, allowing you to trade in your gifts for Masquing. From the 12th, you’ll also be able to turn in your Masquing for special companions on the Encounters at the Feast card.
The Feast will end on the 19th February. The Lady in Lilac and Encounters at the Feast will remain available until the 23rd, after which your remaining Masquing will be converted to Making Waves when Time, the Healer visits.

This content is available year-round, but a married date during the festival certainly wouldn’t go amiss!
