When Sent

You don a clay mask...

...solid and serious, and bathe your hands in grey ash.

A Rubbery Man sits in the gutter surrounded by sharp shards of glass, watching a dozen tiny white cave fish flop their last on the wet cobbles. Their mouths are round and desperate.

Your friend will receive:

Clayman5small.png During the Feast of Masks, [Friend] called on you in a clay mask. Their hands grey with ash, they invited you to confess an error of whimsy.

Once Accepted

You will receive:

You listened to [Friend] confess their errors of whimsy. Your mask hid your smile. You'll light a candle for them, and its light will burn away their folly.

Your friend will receive:

Envelopesmall.png You confessed your whimsy to [Friend], whose solemn mask watched you without sign of amusement. They left wordlessly to light a candle for you. In its light, your folly will wither.
