EXCEPTIONAL STORY: FLINT PART II, WINE OR WOUND Messages in this topic - RSS

'The Old Hound waits in her stall, forelimbs folded, eyes deep and sad. Strings of glass jewels glimmer and clash. A flower-scent rises from the incense tripod. "Best," she groans. "Best wares."'

'Someone has despoiled the stump of a granary with graffiti. "KHANATE SWINE", they have daubed on the wall. "HORSE LUMPERS" "SHIP CROWS" "FOX BITERS" "ARSE-FISH". Many of the sentiments are obscure, but few seem positive, and there is definitely a zoological theme.'

'The surface of a mirror-dark pool trembles. The shadows beneath the trees bend and quiver. The forest shakes. Blood drips from the branches. Salamanders slink hissing from the grass. Tiger-heads break the pool's surface. "War," a voice cries. "War!"'

We're opening the Elder Continent to visitors for the first time. See the story-haunted port of Apis Meet. Visit the hundred-tongued city of Caution. Mount an expedition into the Bleeding Forest, where bee-stings kill with melancholy; and discover whether the pretender-god called the Thief-of-Faces still lies bound in its Prison of Flint...

Flint is a special Christmas treat: a two-part Truly Exceptional Story. Part I opened in October, and Part II is live now. It's the single largest piece of content ever released in Fallen London, and it may be the last bit of FL content I write - Paul now refuses to leave me alone in a room with a keyboard, since I have proven completely incapable of staying within content budget.

Subscribing to Exceptional Friendship will give you access to Parts I and II. Subscribers had early access to the first part of the story in November. If you've been supporting us since November, thank you very much! We hope you've enjoyed it.

We'll also be offering immediate access to the story for the higher price of 120 Fate, for people who really want to play the story but for some reason don't want to subscribe.

[spoiler]I am currently on the "Shall All be Well?" part. I cannot decide whether or not to go with the "Normal" story or go with the "Harder" version. On the one hand, I do enjoy a easier romp, but on the other I am curious just what the higher stakes are, and what it will cost me...[/spoiler]

    What did the Delicious Administrator mean by "and it may be the last bit of FL content I write - Paul now refuses to leave me alone in a room with a keyboard, since I have proven completely incapable of staying within content budget." ? I am not sure if this is a joke or not.

    Oh wow, it was so cool! So much fun and so epic. My character's never been out at Zee before, so visiting all these strange places was a lot of fun both to play and RP (my character's a fighter and adventurer at heart, so he was having a blast). Although anything involving Snuffers tends to make him sad and weepy (he was forced to kill one he loved very much once), I thought the emotional connection made it more satisfying than if it had just stayed a grand adventure to him. And although my character doesn't care much about lore (he tends to just take the weird stuff that happens in stride because he's nuts), I certainly enjoyed it. The world Fallen London is set in is such a fascinating place.

    Also, my deputy was the Regretful Soldier, and the writing for his little story arc was great. I actually got a little misty-eyed at the end. Love that guy.

    oh, and

    [spoiler]I was sure the Bishop's sister was only going to be a temporary companion for the duration of the story but I checked my profile and she's still there. Definitely a nice surprise[/spoiler]

    All in all, you did a fantastic job with this story. Thanks so much!

    Did anyone choose the path with 'negative consequences'? How negative are they?

    If I started part 1 in November early access, but don't plan to compete it until the new year due to a time sensitive grind I am on, is there anything special I need to do now to ensure I'll keep access to part 2 later? The new introduction storylet for December said to go to the house of chimes (as is normal for all ES) but when I got there, there was no new story. And since progressing a story out of the house is how you normally prove you had access to chimes in the appropriate month, this makes me concerned that I will lose the story if I don't complete part 1 this month. Can anyone confirm this one way or the other?

    I think to secure Part 2, one just goes to the old storylet : The "To Wolfstacks!" option is unlocked. I believe you need to do that one, which is at the end of Part 2..
    It changes your quality linked to the story, so.. there's that.

    That suggests you do have to complete part 1 completely to unlock the quality to keep part 2. Which is what I was afraid of, what a bother. I was really hoping I could put it off like every other ES to date since I need all of my actions to hit my grind target before the deadline. Well shoot.

    Can someone who is further in the story please advise whether there is something I would like to take with me before I depart to Apis Meet?

    It's hard to know for certain of course, but I don't believe you need to do anything else. The progress quality is Seeking a Prison of Flint. Part I gets you to as far as level 26. In the meantime there is a Lodging storylet that directs you to the master storylet in the House of Chimes (even if you don't have a subscription) as long as SaPoF is >= 2 and <28. At HoC the branch that starts Part II only requires you to have picked your deputy in Part I and SaPoF 26.

    I don’t know for sure, but I suspect you’ll be fine with just the Part I Chimes step you’ve taken. This is a single story, it’s just being released in two parts when it first comes out. Someone starting it now will get the whole thing and I see no reason why that wouldn’t stay the same in the future.

    I'm also assuming that just doing the introduction storylet that appeared today is enough, since I'm doubt I'll continue this on my main until next month.

    It looks like there are some choices from the first part that impact the second part -- your approach to the Dish & Spoon determines the commission you get in Apis Meet, for instance. Anyone want to spoiler up and link to echoes / share outcomes?

    For instance, if you chose to...
    [spoiler]...steal from the Vespertines in Part I, you get a commission from a scarred rubbery man for some swimming, some stealing; I got 206 Romantic Notions and an Impediment for a Rival.[/spoiler]

    Yay, completed it :'D Again regret my choices. I made choices with assumption "Well, if I'm going to reset this storyline later, I guess I'll make choices I wouldn't do normally since I want to see what happens if I do that thing that seems like really unsafe and bad idea"

    ...Yeah, I could reset the story wow, but holy crap that is expensive ._. Makes sense though. I mean, wow, you get lot of valuable stuff in the Flint as whole ._.; So makes perfect sense that to reset it you need more fate than other resettable stories
