November Exceptional Story: The Final Curtain Messages in this topic - RSS

Delicious friends, the Exceptional Story for November is here!



The wreck of the Bellot is well-known to navigators on the Stolen River. But a chance discovery there will lead to a different mystery. A failing theatre. A singular plant. The first performance of The Mirror'd Chariot. Must the show go on?

The Final Curtain is the final story in the Season of Wrecks, and was written by Olivia Wood. The Season of Wrecks consists of three linked stories that send you to deal with three very different shipwrecks at the behest of the dying Severe Bluejacket.


All players are able to visit the Bluejacket and his household. Exceptional Friends were able, over the course of three months, to help him settle his final regrets. Each month's story stands alone, but playing all three unlocks the season's bonus content.


Editing and QA: Chris Gardiner, James Chew, and Cash DeCuir.

EXCEPTIONAL FRIENDSHIP

In addition to a new, substantial, stand-alone story every month, Exceptional Friends enjoy:
  • Access to the House of Chimes: an exclusive private member's club on the Stolen River, packed with content
  • An expanded opportunity deck: of ten cards instead of six!
  • A second candle: Twice the actions! 40 at once!
Finishing all three stories in the Season of Wrecks will make you eligible for an additional opportunity, to follow.

If you want to keep an Exceptional Story beyond the month it’s for, you must complete the related storylet in the House of Chimes. This will save it for you to return to another time.

Wooooooo Olivia! Can't wait to play! Literally can't wait; starting to play it exactly now.

Edit: Already fulfilled my long-held desire to stop someone being noisy by being even noisier.

I won't be able to play this for a few hours and I'm very upset about this fact - extremely excited.

I’m going to have to put this off until Hallowmas concludes. Oh well.

    Still getting through the story, but a detail I'm particularly enjoying: story/area descriptions changing in small ways as one explores their contents.

    312.5 Echo.

    Try not to worry about rewards too strongly when it comes to Exceptional Stories, really.

    It Is mainly notable for [spoiler] the tale of the Regretful Soldier, a story involving a lady interested in sorrow spiders, I believe, and the opportunity to invite other players when free evenings have been used up.[/spoiler] It's not a grinding area.

    Well now. Powered through, and quite happy to have done so as the story was quite interesting. Not very grindy either, which is always a plus.

    This is probably kind of a dumb question, but how do I embark to get to the shipwreck? I know last month, I was able to embark from my lodgings. But this time I can't find the option at my lodgings, at Wolfstack, or at Zee.

    Sorry RL means I am not a very active player at the moment. No social actions unless you are prepared to wait and definitely no sparring or other mult-action things.

    No Calling Cards or boxed cats please. Will take dupes on the affluent photographers. Other social invitations welcome. Parabolan Kittens usually available, send me an in-game social action saying you want one and I will get one to you as soon as possible.

    I'm honestly starting to like this one, but I'm not enjoying the choices. I'm sure that's the point though.
    I haven't gotten a reward from these all season, so I'm really hesitant to do what I want to in not doing as Bluejacket requested...

    Still waiting on the Opportunity Card conclusion, but that was an enjoyable if unexpected story. Chose to let the play commence with certain alterations. I've it echoed, the reward was...a Searing Enigma
