** Another one, on "snow" in the Neath: "There's a zee-captain down at Wolfstack Docks who claims you can render Neath-snow into white glim on any kitchen stove. [[SchmuckBait I have tried it.]] I have a pan of goo to show for it. Three of my cats tasted the goo when I left it unobserved a moment too long. [[NightmareFuel The one that lives is locked in the cellar now.]] I do not expect I will ever dare to release it. I have developed a dislike of zee-captains."

**Also this:
-->"''The rats are more cautious, but you're more accurate. No bullet goes astray. Which is good, because that last rat was standing in front of rather a handsome terracotta vase in the Egyptian style. Not an original, certainly, but let's not sacrifice art willy-nilly to the needs of the moment. Anyway, rat expunged, vase narrowly escaped.''"

** The secret origin of ratsending (among other things) was finally revealed in their [[http://saint-arthur.tumblr.com/post/146680746144/riding-immortal-on-the-seeking-road giant Seeking Mr Eaten's Name memoir]]:
-->''I was bored (again), and so to amuse myself I decided to bother Alexis on Twitter, asking him how many rats I’d have to send him to get news of a SMEN or Ambition update. This was in, like, January or so. His response, which may some day be written in letters of fire above the ruins of Proto Neo London, was ''“*what is the number*, that’s always the question”''; so, of course, I set out to send as many rats as I possibly could.''

** 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?"

!!Veilgarden
* "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.

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.''
