Well, I’ve just encouraged an urchin to control her anger so that she can become, in a sense, a god. I’m both proud, and a little jealous.
By the way, could someone please echo It Is All Clear Now!’s result? Like an idiot I went into the eye of the storm not knowing what the words “There will be no turning back” entailed before glimpsing that moment of lucidity in Storm’s mind.

Oh, interesting-- I’ve tilted towards Express options, with one Control, and I’ve two Express options and one…Possibility (adoption, which isn’t labeled as Express, Control, or Release, just ’ it is a possibility’ ). I’d take the adoption option without blinking, except I hate leaving Slivvy on his own…
I’m curious on how the options differ–if it’s actual results (the Express options are Work For Storm and Live With the Urchins) or if it’s just flavor text? edited by Thjazi on 7/29/2021
I got two “Control Her Anger” options (“Work for Storm, alongside Slivvy” and “She Should change things here in London instead”) and the adoption option. I went with “Work for Storm” and wound up with two immortal Urchins helping Storm and each other work through anger management for the long term.
I helped her control, express and let go of her anger which meant Storm doesn’t want her any more. I still had the option to have her help Slivvy. I am however slightly offended Storm did not seem to remember my Stormy-Eyed visit… edited by zommuter on 8/6/2021
[quote=NotaWalrus]Finally played this one. Fairly disappointed at the lack of acknowledgement of Renown: Urchins, Stormy-Eyed and What Might Be a Thunderbolt. Those little details go a long way.[/quote] Yes, any of those would have been a neat extra to the story, but perhaps we can explain their absence by Storm being too mad to remember meeting us before - we were a flash of lightning in his (its?) mind, there and gone. :)
I enjoyed this ES! I helped the urchin control and express her anger which led me to the two Control Her Anger options ("Work for Storm" or "Change things in London"). Setting the Urchin loose on London was very tempting but in the end, so many people have the opportunity to work for change in London, but only this particular one can help a god! And her best friend into the bargain.
Did anyone manage to succeed the high-risk Urchin Betrayal challenge inside Storm? and if you did, would you mind linking the echo, please? I got all the others, but gave up on this one after a few tries, still I’m curious about the success text, if anyone got it.
