This has me rather worries. I think I might’ve done something to lock myself on Spending Secrets 3, which would be… inconvenient at best. See, what happened is that I drew the opportunity-card of The Numismatrix, which started ‘a living story’, which was a lecture, and a while later I drew an opportunity-card that let me ‘pick a side’. Which I did. But between the lecture and the appearance of the card, I somehow stumbled into selecting the storylet ‘The Numismatrix’ from the ‘FIND NEW STORIES’ menu in my residence. A terrible waste of Appalling Secrets, I just figured at the time. Not sure why I did it - I suspect I was half-asleep.
Anyway, a little while after I had drawn the ‘pick a side’ card, the ‘invited to a lecture by The Numismatrix’ story appeared in my messages again, and instinctively, I clicked on it. And the lecture played out again. So now I’m back on ‘Spending Secrets - 3’, as after the first lecture, but it’s been a while since then, and the ‘pick a side’ card hasn’t appeared again. The allegiance-related options that started to show up on faction-cards between my first side-selection and the second lecture also disappeared.
Could my unwary repetition of the Numismatrix’s lecture have triggered a glitch which prevents me from progressing with the rather important storyline of The Numismatrix? Or do I just need to be more patient in waiting for the card to reappear?
