Whitsun (Guide)

This content is only available during Whitsun!
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.[1]

Whitsun is an Easter-like event in which Londoners can buy, change and hatch eggs.

Acquiring an Egg[edit]

Eggspeckledsmall.png

There are three kinds of eggs available to Londoners; Scarlet, Aged and Percipient. All three are bought from The Reliable Eggmonger, with Scarlet eggs costing an Ambercoins.png Amber Ha'penny apiece.

Investigating Eggs[edit]

Untreated Eggs can also be investigated in your Laboratory. For 125 x Library.png Laboratory Research, each egg will give +5 CP Beer.png Speculation about Whitsun and increase Medalbatgold.png The Prestige of your Laboratory, as well as:

Wiki note: The study of Agedegg.png Aged and Crimsonegg.png Scarlet eggs allows you to use Tentacle.png Monstrous Anatomy under Direct Your Own Research and of Percipientegg.png Percipient eggs, Honeyjar.png Kataleptic Toxicology. These options generally garner the most Library.png Laboratory Research among the options that you may have and are independent of anything else in your labwork, so players that have just recently started their labs but have already spent time racking up the relevant Esoteric Arts can pursue these projects more readily than other projects.

Speculation about Whitsun[edit]

Beersmall.png

Speculation about Whitsun can be obtained while doing various actions in London. It is mostly useless, however at level 10, it can be used to publish a Whitsun Edition of your newspaper if you own one.

Bringing up your egg[edit]

Crimsoneggsmall.png

Eggs can be either Enlightened or Invigorated, which together with the type of egg will determine which kind of creature will be spawned.

Sinning Jenny's Finishing School (FATE)[edit]

At Sinning Jenny's Finishing School, it's possible to to lead your students in study by using untreated eggs. While most options will give you items, it is possible to obtain a Bazaar.png Dark-Carapaced Crustacean and even a Bazaar.png Gilded Crustacean by considering Aged Eggs from a Red Science perspective. Each egg will advance your syllabus by one step (so you can only open four eggs per group of students) and increase Xmas jenny.png Credit with the Headmistress by 1.

Selling Eggs[edit]

Bone17.png

Eggs can also be sold to buyers in the Bone Market.

Breaking open eggs[edit]

Eye brownsmall.png

It is also possible to break open your eggs on the Bring Up your Egg page and—for untreated eggs—The Trials of Patience. Eggs can be broken open at any point of the Enlighten/Invigorate phase, yielding a wide range of rewards. Every break open action is a 40% luck check and has two possible results for each success and failure.

Augmenting Eggs[edit]

Egggoldsmall.png

After you have fully Enlightened or Invigorated an egg, you can also apply up to three Augments to it. Two of the augments per egg can be applied by specialists who have set up camp at various locations in London. Each location can provide one augmentation per egg; thus, visits to two separate locations are needed to acquire both of them. The third possible source of augmentations is the Meteors red.png Highly Illegal Experimental Augmentation Device (Probably). This device can be purchased separately with Ambercoins.png Amber Ha'pennies.

It should be noted that only the number of augmentations matter for the result, the order doesn't. For example, you can apply the Highly Illegal Experimental Augmentation Device to an egg with no augments, then hatch it, and it will count as a once-augmented egg for the result.

Augments will change what kind of creature you get and will make it more powerful. Twice-augmented creatures have higher stat bonuses, +1 point of either B/D/R, and may have some uses in specific locations. Thrice-augmented creatures have a point in an advanced skill.

Sartorial Augmentation[edit]

Needlethreadsmall.png

Sartorial Augments are a special type of Augments applied by the tailor in Ladybones Road. Sartorial Augments can only be applied if you have no other Augments and will ensure that instead of a living creature, a piece of clothing will hatch from your egg. The type of clothing will be determined by your egg and if you Enlightened or Invigorated it. All Augments cost 3 x Ambercoins.png Amber Ha'penny.

De Gustibus[edit]

Lambchopsmall.png

De Gustibus has made a return to London, and may be found at Ladybones Road. In addition to previously available options, it is now possible to sell them Eggs in almost any state (Eggs with Needlethread.png Sartorial Augmentation are not considered edible) for various rewards. This marks the first time that Boxred.png A Sealed Copy of the Crimson Book has been available in nearly six years. A complete list of rewards can be found on the page De Gustibus in Whitsun. Selling an augmented egg of any kind to De Gustibus will increase De Gustibus: Eggxhaustion, so you can only sell a maximum of two augmented eggs to them per season.

Hatching an Egg[edit]

Grandfatherclocksmall.png

After you've fully brought up your egg, you can start the hatching process on the Storylet Incubate your Egg. This process typically takes 24 hours; however, it may be hastened by the use of Ambercoins.png Amber Ha'pennies or Fate. During this 24 hour period, eggs can not be Invigorated, Enlightened or Augmented. Note that eggs to which a Sartorial Augment has been applied, or that have been received through social actions, will hatch immediately.

The Hatchening[edit]

After 24 Hours[edit]

After 24 hours a message will appear in your inbox saying that your Egg is ready to be hatched. A new storylet will appear in your Lodgings called The Hatchening, redirecting you to The Hatching: What Emerges. There you can admire the wondrous occasion that is a birth (And hopefully keep the d__n place intact).

Sped up using Fate/Amber Ha'pennies[edit]

If you hastened the passage of time using Box.png Fate/Ambercoins.png Amber Ha'pennies or had a Needlethread.png Sartorial Augmentation applied, Incubate your Egg will immediately let you witness the birth of your creature (or slightly alive piece of clothing).

Event Timeline[edit]

For the second Whitsun (1899/2021), the original announced timeline was as follows:

  • Event opens on a Monday. Everything becomes available.
  • No more eggs after Friday the following week (11 days). The Reliable Eggmonger is removed and no more base eggs can be obtained. All other actions remain available, including augmenting, hatching, research, and De Gustibus.
  • Event closes the following Monday (14 days). All remaining eggs expire, including augmented eggs that have not yet hatched.

Following server troubles during the first week, the event was extended by three days. Future iterations of Whitsun will likely follow the original timeline, barring other exceptional circumstances.
