A damp fog fills London’s streets. Londoners of all stripes lurk in its concealment: masked, cloaked, triply hidden. It is the season of Hallowmas, of the commission and purging of sin. Londoners seek out the Attendants – the masked representatives of the Bazaar – to be shriven.
Hallowmas has returned to London! The Feast of Masks! A free festival, open to all citizens.
Go masked to exclusive Hallowmas parties. Raise your scandal, suspicion and nightmares, and unburden yourself to the seven Attendants. Expose certain of your Companions to the sights of Hallowmas and leave them changed.
This Hallowmas, you will encounter new potential romantic and platonic life Companions, and have opportunities for marriage and divorce.
The Feast of Masks
At Hallowmas, it is customary to go masked.
Three masks are in vogue this year: the Smiling Demon, the Four-Eyed Moth, and the Triple Crown. Select yours, gain access to a secretive Hallowmas revel, and indulge yourself to raise your Scandal, Suspicion or Nightmares.
The Attendants are the representatives of the Bazaar at Hallowmas. Londoners deliver up confessions to them; their own and others.
Many Londoners wear masks. Only seven have been called on to do so by the Masters themselves.
The Smiling Jester. The Glasswhisper. The Knight of Numbers. The Silent Shame. The False Student. The Fool’s Apostate. Hammerstrike.
Specific combinations of Confessions can be brought to the Visitors if you have a certain Companion. These Confession combinations can then be used to upgrade that Companion to a new, Hallowmas version.
Confessions abound at Hallowmas, if one knows where to stand when the eaves are dropped.
Confessions will be released for free during the Festival, and also available to buy for Fate. You will receive a maximum of 14 free Confessions (some in week one, and more in week two).
There are six types of Confession in total, though not all will be available until the second week of the festival. Confessions can be unlocked on the Streets of London: Hallowmas 1898 card, and traded with other players to achieve the combination you desire.
In order to make a trade with someone else in Fallen London, you will need to add them as an acquaintance, either by visiting their profile page and clicking ‘add contact’ or by typing in their character name during the trade.
The Spirit of Hallowmas
A certain festival joie de vivre. A spring in the Hallowmas’ celebrants step.
Throughout the festival, look for a card in the Opportunity Deck called The Fool’s Judgement. This will allow you to convert Scandal, Suspicion or Nightmares into Spirit of Hallowmas.
At the end of the festival, you’ll be visited by a special character who will provide rewards dependent on the level of your Spirit of Hallowmas. The nature of this character will depend on the Menace you’ve most frequently converted.
