I thought this was a nice bit of storytelling. I had all but forgotten about Cut with Moonlight (which was released three and a half years ago!). Nice to see the sunlight/moonlight trade is still alive and kicking :P

Many thanks to Azothi and Lemonadeon for their very enlightening posts! smile

Would someone be so kind and post the endings for "Assisting the Debunker's moonlight ritual" and "Taking off with the boat (and the smugglers' haul)"?

I've found echoes for three of the four options. Did anyone take off with the boat?

Assist the Debunker
End the Smuggling Operation
Drag the Debunker Away

Unfortunately I missed the chance to unlock the story. Don't ask. I'm really sad about that.

When will the story become available to buy for FATE? I would love to play it.

Late to the party (as usual), but here are my impressions:

I like this one. While not directly a sequel to Cut with Moonlight, it plays like a spiritual sequel (pun only semi-intended). I very much appreciated the little nods in the text to my character's past interaction with Sunlight and Moonlight smugglers. This is a seldom-explored part of the lore.

The atmosphere was very appropriate, and I liked the Dashing Debunker quite a bit (though I would have never made the connection to his real-world counterpart without the forum).

The premise was not fully fleshed out (who hired the Debunker?), and the ending was a bit abrupt, but, as noted, the story's strengths are characters and atmosphere. And I always appreciate a story which provides a unique item/companion for the collection.
