The Fruits of the Zee festival begins!

By Sara Veal, August 17, 2020 · Fallen London


London ripens under the false-summer.  Londoners perspire in linen and crinoline, street-side hawkers promise ‘Gin-u-ine Rubbery Lumps’, imported flowers briefly beautify the streets. Anticipation for the Festival of the Fruits of the Zee lingers in the air like unspent lightning.

Look out your rod and reel: the Fruits of the Zee Festival is upon us! The festival begins today, 17th August, and will end at midday on 1st September.

As summer winds down, enjoy calming fishing trips and indulge in a cornucopian repast of delights plucked fresh from the bounteous Zee.

  • Hire a fishing boat, land a Strange Catch and trade it at the festival for special rewards!
  • Enjoy the maypole dancing, Drownie serenades, beer &c!
  • Secure an invitation to a secret feast and catch a glimpse of your Destiny. Will it be a vision of victory or a dream of darkness?
  • You may even chance upon the Viscountess of the Viric Jungle, London’s new Lord Mayor…

Catch a ferry from Wolfstack Docks to Mutton Island to join the festivities!

The Fruits of the Zee Festival is a free event open to all players, no matter your level. You don’t need to own a boat, and if you don’t know the way to Wolfstack Docks, there’s a helpful urchin at your lodgings who will be happy to ferry you for a reasonable price.

@Fader McGee You need exactly 8 for both the Mary and the crown.

For the demon prince crown? Try giving your strange catch to the lady incognito and spending fate points for other options than what she offers outright -- it was the only way I was able to get it. I think it was 30 fate. Good luck and Best Wishes. ~Kaerlyss

Geez, what level of Strange Catch do we need for the Crown? I've gone into the cave with 7, 9, and 11, and never saw it as an option.
