** In honour of Alexis' departure from Failbetter, said player declared an emergency [[http://community.failbettergames.com/topic22438-ghost-of-ratmas-past-the-armratgeddon.aspx Ghost of Ratmas Past]] and asked everyone to send dead rats to Alexis (and Alexis' test account).

** For a snippet on where revolutionaries gather to hand out pamphlets and rant about the Bazaar: "Why can't they just rant on Facebook, like everyone else?"

* "A Polite Invitation". No matter who you are, you'll be invited to a fine party apparently hosted by someone absolutely ''terrible'' at picking guests. More likely than not, you will have to narrowly avert a disaster, or be part of one. It helps that London nobility overreacts to ''anything''.
** The Jovial Contrarian can end up killing a guy through sheer annoyance, which spoils the party entirely.
-->''He doesn't know why this keeps happening''
** The poor, poor Tentacled Entrepeneur has zero idea what's going on through the entire thing, and needs your help throughout the whole party. He's also rich enough to make even the snootiest lord/lady reconsider their stance.
-->''"I'm really not sure that- I'm sorry, '''[[EveryManHasHisPrice how much?]]'''"''
** Some usually minor CrossCulturalKerfuffle with the Turkish Girl taking off her shoes to dance.
-->''[[FauxHorrific Ankles! Naked ankles!]]''
** Expressing an opinion is apparently extremely risky, and saying something even remotely shocking will cause one of the older guests to pass out face-first into his soup from the sheer shock.
** Trying a fiery dance of the Elder Continent, only to find out that exact dance was ''banned by the Ministry of Public Decency'' last week. Everyone agrees to never speak of it again.

** Alexis now has a quality called [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/35c8e6fc1b818fc3030d702c40e0062f/tumblr_inline_nyyox5J7rj1rdinea_500.png "Accepting No Further Rats"]].

Of course, the aforementioned player decided he'd set up [[http://saint-arthur.tumblr.com/post/134689564199/ratmas-2015-bad-jokes-never-die a whole Ratmas project]] so everyone ''else'' in Failbetter Games gets swamped with rats. And for reasons unspecified sending Christmas cards to Mr Eaten, which is either hilariously dangerous or sweet.
-->''In a pinch, cats will also suffice, because you can turn a cat into a rat by rubbing out a bit of the c.''

* Check the Bazaar tab while doing your romp through the Iron Republic. [[spoiler:That's right, that's Fuel and Supplies from ''Videogame/SunlessSea''. It takes a special kind of chaos to let you buy items for the ''wrong game'']].

* When you meet a local steamer on The Sea of Voices, it tries to befriend you. If you own a Majestic Pleasure Yacht, the steamer tries to mate with it.

--> The noise! The Polythreme steamer emits a wheezing scream. Perhaps it's music - resolutely atonal music - to non-human ears. [] It looks like you're being overrun by luminescent jellyfish. [] You steam away from the thing.

[] The ship bumps suggestively against the hull of your yacht, and the lights at the prow turn an ethereal blue. It looks like you're being overrun by luminescent jellyfish. [] After half an hour of this, the stranger sighs, cuts engines and drifts off despondently. You steam away from the thing.

* Some of the "Sever ties with this faction" cards are heartwarming or moral, like saving a soul from Hell or reporting a hypocritical noble to the authorities. Some are just plain dickish, like chasing your tomb-colonist friends out of the house with candles or turning your roof into a deathtrap so urchins won't come back. But writing down the location of spies' super-secret shrine and graffitying its location (and some unsavory secrets to start a cloak and dagger free-for-all) all over London? Taking the chance you were given to give a sermon on proper behavior to rail against the church for hours and hours? Switching out wardrobes to something drab and sensible [[FauxHorrific much to your bohemian friends' horror?]] Finding a zee-bat, which sailors are extremely superstitious about hurting, and ''cooking it for dinner in front of everyone'', making a hardened zailor cry in the process? That's just hilarious. [[VideogameCrueltyPotential Cruel, but hilarious]].
