This entirely player-hosted, player-planned, and player-managed event was a stunning success, thanks to the enthusiasm of all who participated in it. Look for your midnight dance writeups in the August Society Gazette, and a special extra surprise in the mail, personalized to your character.
This year’s Denouement Ball follows a theme of animal masks and tarot cards. It will surely lead to many mysteries to be solved through the off season. Who was that charming dance partner? Who did you spill your drink on?
No one knows who you are, save those you’ve told. Of course, to find out who’s who, you’ll have to write to all manner of people to find them.
The annual Denouement Ball is hosted at the Duke of Somerset's personal estate, and marks the end of the London season. It is an evening of mystery and enchantment, romance and possibility.
The Unofficial RJ Fan Club Discord mods have created a system in which you may set up and partake in small scenes during the event. Please follow the instructions below, and reply to this post or message me directly with any issues, concerns, or questions (we will address them in private message, here on this forum).
➼ Green Star -- Supervised / Best Behavior (Safe for all)
➼ Green Star over Yellow -- Mostly Supervised / Mostly good behavior (Safe for all)
➼ Yellow Star over Green -- Loosely Supervised / Safe for married & widowed persons. Potentially Scandalous for those on the Market.
➼ Yellow Star -- Afford a little bit of privacy, but there's also some reputation security.
➼ Red Star over Yellow -- Minimal Supervision, although footmen do make regular patrols of the grounds. Being caught alone here isn't scandalous, being caught with someone could be.
➼ Red Star -- Afford more privacy but have zero reputation protection. As designed, your ads and replies will be visible to others. There could be those who seek to ruin your reputation and unmask you.

Ads set the tone, while replies set the time.
Sweet — You helped me get unstuck from someone’s dress.
Romantic — You danced with me when I found myself alone.
Saucy — We reached for the same glass of punch…no one wound up getting the punch, but when our hands touched, lightning struck.
Messy — You almost set my hair on fire when you knocked me against a candelabra.
Spicy — we shared a drunken fumble before Duchess Richmond clapped eyes on us and we scarpered.
Do keep in mind there are servants and chaperones all over during this event, including mamas and the trustees of your banks, because it is being hosted at a private, opulent, residence. Public displays of affection with someone to whom you are not married risk your reputation, and may result in gossip, blackmail, demand for financial restitution, a challenge to a duel, or requirement of an immediate engagement to each other.
