Hi all,

Without spoiling anything about the stories themselves, I want to create a list of Exceptional Stories where having rare items or qualities unlocks some supplementary content, however small. I'm the sort of person who's always kicking myself if I miss these sort of things, and I think it'd be good to have a non-spoiler-y list all in one place. I've only got a few so far off the top of my head:

Lost in Reflections: Completion of Court of Cats / Connected:Glass
Discernment: Coruscating Soul
The Last Dog Society: The Gift
The Seven-Day Reign: Completion of Long-Lost Daughter and/or Inconvenienced By An Aunt
The Pentecost Predicament: Pentecost Ape
Flint: Acquaintance with Silas the Showman
The Calendar Code: Completion of Lost in Reflections
The Frequently Deceased: Possession of Starveling Cat / Exquisite Toy / Broken Toy / Hand of Glory
Where You And I Must Go: SMEN
The Chimney Pot Wars: SMEN

Sinning Jenny's Finishing School: Completion of The Frequently Deceased and/or Lost In Reflections and/or The Gift
Fourth Coil of the Labyrinth of Tigers: Combo of Trade in Souls and Regretful Soldier storyline
The Gift: Acquaintance with The Captivating Princess
Mysteries of the Foreign Office: Completion of Hojotoho

Anyone have more to add? Reply with additions and I'll put them here. Zero spoilers, please!

A Trade in Faces
Uncovering the Secrets of the Face-Tailor.

Blemmigan Affairs
Mask of the Rose. But I think you can still buy it at that point.
Black Wings or Oblivion? Not sure, but with that icon.

Rubbery Murders
Renown Rubbery 10. I know it is easy but I did it too early to satisfy it.

Court of Cats(201506)
Your Plant.

Lost in Reflection(201507)
As is said: Glass. Court of Cat.

Last Dog Society(201508)
Held in Esteem by the Crew of the Galatea. So the Gift.
Experienced Zailor, for flavor probably.

Cut With Moonlight(201509)
Young Stags Club, for flavor probably.

Discernment(201510)
Spirifer/Sheperd.
Probably Blemmigan Affairs.
Coruscating Soul.
A Stain on Soul.
Brass Skull? Not sure.
115 Muscaria Brandy. (No, that's not worth it.)

Flint I (201511)
Uncovering the Secrets of the Face-Tailor.
An mask icon. Trade in Faces probably.
The Big Rat things.
A branch of Knife&Candles, with Order Vespertine icon. I suspect it is no longer that now, but I know nothing about the replacement.
Presbyterate Diplomat. Black Ribbon. Implacable Detective. Dilmun. University. Regretful Soldier. Sardonic Music-Hall Singer. Repentant Forger. Silas the Showman.

Flint II(201512)
Nothing special I think.

Art of Murder(201601)
Connection: the Masters icon.
Order Vespertine icon.
Vermin Free icon.

Waltz(201602)
Death experience. Nadir experience. Quite high scandal?

Frequently Deceased(201603)
Clayman icon.
Respectable.
Wine Cellar Icon.
As said, plus Unearthly Fossils and Corsair Hat, perhaps they are not rare.

Seven-Day Reign(201604)
Aunt. Long lost daughter. Young Stag Club.

Pentecost Predicament(201605)
Pentecost Ape.

Five Minutes to Midday(201606)
Regretful Soldier.

Chimney Pot War(201607)
SMEN.

Calendar Code(201608)
Lost in Reflections.

Where UNI must go (201609)
SMEN
Wry Functionary? Not sure if needed.

Our Lady of Pyres(201610)
Not found in my record.

The Final Curtain(201611)
Glass.

The Persona Engine(201612)
Not found in my record.

The Twelve-Fifteen from Moloch Street(201701)
Soulless.

The Century Exhibition (201702)
Not found in my record.

The Clay Man's Arm(201703)
Comtessa.

The Heart, the Devil and the Zee(201704)
Not found in my record.

HOJOTOHO! (201705)
Not found in my record.

The Web of the Motherlings (201706)
Dilmun.

All Things Must End (201707)
Not found in my record.

The Attendants (201708)
Not found in my record.

Trial and Error (201709)
Not found in my record

Noise from Upstairs(201903)
Nothing of importance.
Can't quite sure whether the Cut with Moonlight is required. It shares the same icon with this ES's event development quality. I think probably there isn't. Unless my memory is twisted by the moonlight.

Lost in Reflections includes an extra option for having completed Court of Cats, as well as having Connected: Glass. (Both in the same place, so you only really get to use one of them)

Calendar Code has an option for when you've completed Lost in Reflections.

The Finishing School also has an option for when you've completed The Gift.

In a certain path of Where You & I Must Go you can meet someone from The Waltz that Moved the World. No qualities are actually used, so it's up to you whether you want to include this or not.


Televangelist: you can delete those "edited by..." notes at the end when editing your OP. It looks terrible when they add up that way wink

All the Saints gives you slightly different text at the beginning based on which renown is higher or if they're equal, I believe. It's about why you get pulled into the events of the story in the first place.

Steeped in Honey has alternate ways of [spoiler]gaining access to the red honey den[/spoiler] unlocked by having The Cat's Chiefest Claw, or if you've gotten past a certain point in Nemesis. I've heard Written in the Glim has a similar unlock involving Light Fingers! though I can't confirm that one since the character I played through it with doesn't have that ambition.

While we're being pedantic, "An Episode for Exceptional Friends" indicates what ES teaser storylet is currently available and whether you've played it yet. You don't need to be an EF to have that quality.

Please do, please do! If you think it's too much, a PM would be more than appreciated!

I'll probably take a break after this Feast and just log in to farm at the Court. But when I get back, I want to start going through the 24 stories that await me! Big Grin In the meantime, I can start preparing if/where is needed! That SotC option is something I want to play!

None of the options should be mutually exclusive. The SotC one is an alternative to a regular option, and the Unwelcome at the University was for a QLD rather than a different option iirc, but it's possible to do all in one playthrough.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by QLD, but I've seen at least three variations of result text+title where those University-related qualities are checked, and with how thorough this ES is I won't be surprised if different combinations can yield different results. These results are mutually exclusive. I got one where I was recognized as someone from the Department of ______ in the past with A Respectable Academic+An Idealist to the End.

Wines with item/no item are also mutually exclusive (I happen to have only the Sceptre, so I only personally saw one of the two special options). I'm not quite sure about the Midnighter option since I'm not one, sorry!


Also I just remembered Written in the Glim has an option for if you have Knowledge of the Arts (from Light Fingers). I've also heard that For All the Saints checks your Hell/Church renown? Someone who has played it might be able to fill in the details.

By "purely for flavor", I mean even more so than usual. It's not a case where you unlock an alternative option with no mechanical differences—using the ticket gives you some unique text, but the story won't progress until you play the regular option.

The Finishing School has two options depending on "The Gift" (one for each ending).
The Last Dog Society has an option depending on the Galatea-ending of "The Gift".
The Seven-Day Reign has some options depending on "A Long-Lost Daughter" and "An Inconvenient Aunt".

Frequently Deceased has a bit where you can use the Starveling Cat / Exquisite Toy / Broken Toy. I am not sure if it is rare enough for the list, but the Starveling Cat is too funny to not mention.

My Kingdom For A Pig has yet another load of rare unlocks! Off the top of my head: Pirate-Poet, Calendar Code, any Fidgeting Writer item, In Search of A Stiff Drink, and The Gift all unlock alternate options with different text; the stories also change the text based on the ending. Being a Doctor, Poet-Laureate, and Blemmigan Hat unlock options with extra rewards.
