Exceptional Friendship lasts for 30 days exactly, so if you buy now you’ll have access to both this month’s story and the next month’s.
Edit: Forgot to remove a word.

I recently bought Exceptional Friend, and I’ve been trying to figure out the pattern for action refreshes. Sometimes, it takes a full 10 minutes to get a new action, but sometimes it seems to be faster. Whats going on there?
That is exactly what I needed to hear. Thankyou! :-D
I quite enjoyed this month’s story. It was charming, interesting, and had refreshing mechanics. The rewards are non-exclusive, so I certainly wouldn’t buy for that alone, but the regular EF benefit of the extra candle and larger deck is quite valuable anyway.
Some players have disliked that the mechanics which I expect are intended to make everybody’s experience of the story a bit different have the effect that it is difficult or perhaps impossible to read all of the words of the middle content during a single playthrough, or to be selective to make sure to pick up what you missed with an alt. Whether this is a bad thing and how much of one it is will be a matter of personal taste; I thought it was kind of neat, but I appreciate others’ frustration with it.
If you’re only going to join for one month, I think joining now to unlock this story and July is a fine choice. And the greater the chance you’ll maintain your Exceptional Friendship, the more reason to get in on this story too. Just don’t forget to start the story before the month is up so it stays unlocked for you.
I’m stuck out at zee presently (still on my way to Polythreme), so I’ll probably wait until I get back into the city itself before making the purchase to become an Exceptional Friend.
(Though at my current rate of progress, this may be sometime mid-way through July before that happens. :-p )

I find that sometimes I’ll accidentally open multiple browser tabs for Fallen London, which seems to desynchronise the clocks on-screen. Try refreshing the webpage if you’re uncertain - that tends to fix it on my end.
I have noticed that there seems to be a glitch with the countdown timer. It makes me wonder if the server is perhaps kept in some great, deep underground cavern… thereby causing relativistic effects.
