Mask of the Rose is a Kickstarter-funded prequel to Fallen London, set mere months after the Fifth City fell.


Kickstarter Campaign[edit]

The Kickstarter campaign was launched in February 2021, running until March 10.


Kickstarter Promos[edit]

The campaign had a set of community Social Goals, which promised a Fallen London gift for reaching 5 and 7 social goals.


Sheaf of Poetic First Drafts[edit]

The Sheaf of Poetic First Drafts was the reward for reaching five social goals, given out via a access code.

A yellowing bundle of papers, found trapped between piles of ancient census folders. Lost since shortly after the Fall, only now finding their way into your hands.

Result:

A quick scan reveals work demonstrating wit, deft rhyming, and even the inoffensive use of puns. Sentences, whole stanzas are scratched out, rewritten, tweaked. The poems are unfinished, perhaps even abandoned. But even now, decades after these pages were lost, the words brim with passion.

Rusty Census-Taker's Badge[edit]

Access Code: https://www.fallenlondon.com/a/TheCensusTaker287366

A small metal badge: the sign of one employed by the Masters to perform a census, immediately after the Fall.

Result:

It is impressive that the badge is merely rust stained. The folds of metal, like the delicate petals of a stylised rose, can be bent with only finger pressure and would crack if flexed. Most such badges will have been discarded in 1862, when the worker's job was complete. How did this one survive the decades?
