About the Story

“The Striking Saleswoman spends her waking hours trudging across London, sales kit in hand. She infiltrates every stratum of society, not resting until she has either made a sale or been made to leave.”

The Mistress of the Skies invites Londoners – rich and poor – to paint their faces with the colours of the Neath. Investigate the Striking Saleswoman, with her iridescent nails and sparkling eyelids; observe the consequences of this new pigment on London’s social fabric; learn the true identity of the reclusive Mistress. And try not to trip over the cats.

Class warfare through magic makeup, June 13, 2022

This is a Fallen London exceptional story, a chunk of additional story-focused content available to subscribers (or on its own, for a heftier sum).

This story focuses on a new brand of makeup being sold door-to-door in an MLM format, with people recruiting others and getting bonuses for it. The makeup is based on the Neathbow, colors in Fallen London that have magical effects (like forgetfulness, remembrance, dreams, emptiness, etc.).

The collective is trying to disrupt Victorian London society by giving greater power to the lower classes. The establishment is not happy about this.

You become one of the recruits, but you become embroiled in a dispute from the far past. Features cats, royalty, Egypt, a striking main NPC, and the other side of mirrors.

This is an excellent character piece, but that is its only distinguishing quality, unless you are especially interested in social reform.
