The Calendar CouncilEdit
- January's identity was hinted at the conclusion of the "Season of Revolutions" Exceptional Stories. She is allied with the University.
- February is for many the most frequently encountered member of the Council; one can meet her in the Forgotten Quarter, where she is looking for a site of great interest to her cause. She's also involved in Knife-and-Candle, as a patron in the Moon League, which is odd because she is a sworn rival of Mr Iron.
- March was also briefly part of the game and appeared to have been a lot friendlier than the ruthless February. However, that iteration of March was likely killed by the Haunted Doctor, who had been hired to do it by the rest of the Council. The current iteration is a coffee-smuggler and a sworn enemy of Mr Wines.
- April is mentioned rarely, but it is known that she's a master at building explosives, and her work has made her deaf. They say her real name is [Ambition: Bag a Legend spoilers] Emelia Hathersage, and she is one half of a partnership that makes the finest naval weapons in London..
- May is hinted to be the Manager of the Royal Bethlehem Hotel by multiple sources, including the Exceptional Story "The Calendar Code."
- June, otherwise known as the Curt Relicker, was kicked out after falling in love with December. His replacement is a woman who was the original architect of the Dawn Machine.
- July used to be a cultured society lady and violinist, but it's hinted in the Exceptional Story "Lost in Reflections" that she lost her mind to a powerful Fingerking. She trades her memories for dreams of the future.
- August is potentially the Jovial Contrarian, who knows quite a bit about various revolutionary causes despite not always being involved in them. He may be the Affluent Photographer's husband, or at least her friend. He ran, unsuccessfully, for Mayor of London in 1894.
- September is known only by reputation. But we know he exists.
- October is possibly Dr. Schlomo (otherwise known as Freud).
- November's identity is unknown.
- The leader of the Calendar Council is December, although nobody seems to know much about this ambiguously gendered individual. Whoever they are, they seem adamant about taking the Mountain of Light. But no-one knows why...
- The Affluent Photographer is one of the Council's main correspondents and perhaps the wife of the Jovial Contrarian.
- The Secular Missionary is a charming lady who has come to the Neath searching for her missing husband. She looks innocent, but is actually well-acquainted with anarchist causes.
- The Revolutionary Firebrand is a recent arrival in London and the exceptionally handsome husband of the Secular Missionary. He is known for being a bit of a cheapskate.
|What is the Liberation of Night?|
It's an anarchist plot to blow up the Bazaar and extinguish every light in the Neath. And it would only be a test run, because the Revolutionaries then plan to get rid of all the light in the UNIVERSE (the Liberation, presumably, being from the sources of said light). Knowingly or not, players who give the Revolutionaries luminous items, like glowing scarabs, are contributing to the plot.
The method through which this Liberation will be achieved is not entirely known. However, numerous Unclear Bombs (which behave similarly to nuclear bombs, but instead of a blinding flash they release blinding darkness) are scattered on the Zee floor, and the anarchists spend much of their resources trying to research unclear devices.
This may well be the future; its hypothetical aftermath is visible in the Fair King's Mirror, deep below the Zee in Wrack. (The Bazaar is in ruins, London is dim, and an arch commemorating the city's liberation from death has been erected; but a lone zee-captain prepares to defy it all. Is this the future, or but a bad dream?)

What do the Revolutionaries deal in?Edit
Wax, beetles, magnifying glasses: if its use advances the Liberation of Night, then the Radical Factotum will take it.
