Whitsun is here: a new festival in Fallen London!
Eggs have abruptly appeared all over London – in bath tubs, balanced on chimneys, nestled in sofas, tucked in the holds of docked ships. And they’re vast ones, the size of a beer barrel, an over-rounded dog, a prize-winning marrow.
Acquire an egg. Apply augmentations to it, if you like. Why not? The d___ed things are everywhere, and while London is hardly short on distractions, they’re wonderfully novel – though they do take up quite a bit of space in your parlour.
Incubate eggs, one at a time. What will happen when they hatch? Who knows! Each will take 24 hours to hatch unless you, ahem, assist it.
What else to do with them? Try sending one to a friend. Surely no more dangerous than a boxed cat!
Also: there’s a gathering of gourmets who will sample almost anything. The Apicius Club. These connoisseurs of novel flavours are reconvening for the festivities, and willing to take all manner of delicacies off your hands, including but not limited to these tempting, giant ova. Look for De Gustibus in Whitsun at Ladybones Road to make their acquaintance.
Employ SCIENCE to further your egg experiments!
Purchase a Highly Illegal Experimental Augmentation Device (Probably) in order to get the very most out of your eggs, or investigate them in your University Lab.
Investigating the eggs in your University Lab will increase your Red Science and Shapeling Arts.
Whitsun begins today, 11th May 2020, and will conclude on the 22nd. Please note that to prevent a dreadful stench, all eggs will be removed on the 25th of May, including any which you have not hatched.
Enjoy your eggs!
