Hello Londoners,

I am a seeker of the name and as such, may or may not finish the game at some point for good.
I want to explore more exceptional stories before that but I found the fate-locked content a bit hit or miss - high quality writing though they are, the subject matter wasn't always interesting to me.

I really enjoy the dark and morbid stories in Fallen London. The Gift, Light Fingers and the case of Jack of Smiles were my favorite bits of content up to this point.
Particular aspects of the Lore that really interest me are Dreams/Parabola (can you guess I supported the Viscountess?), the darker secrets of the Palace and the Royal Family, the Royal Bethlehem, the ceiling (moon misers, stared men, etc.), the Drownies, the Masters and dealing with monsters (like hunting for the Spider Council).



Let me follow it up with a list of stories I already played along with a personal rating:
- The Gift 5/5

- The Empress' Shadow 3.5/5
(I liked the lore about the Shadow, her dealings with the masters and the (possible) sixth city)

- Lost in Reflection 4/5
(loved everything about the mirrors and parabola, the prophecy of what might come to be in the future was cool, too)

- The Attendants 2/5
(I felt it underdelivered on the horror that the plot synopsis suggested; also I expected that there might be more to learn about the Duchess and the Cantigaster, but there was very little on that front)

- Marriage of Fedducci 2/5
(I enjoyed the little hints about the darker ongoings in the palace, such as the butler who's lover was eaten, but that's about it; I was hoping for a little more lore about Fedduci and the Princess, if nothing else)


I'm currently playing "Written in the Glim". Stories that sound interesting based on synopsis are "Where you and I must go", "Daylight", "Cut with Moonlight" and "Haunting at the March House".

So, what other stories might be up my alley?

I had a sneaking suspicion that there might be horror involved when you get caught but my stats were already too high for even a chance of being discovered.
Mind giving me an idea what happens?

"A Little Pandemonium", "Noises from Upstairs" and "For all the Saints" all sound pretty interesting.
I have no idea what to expect from "Cricket anyone". What made those stories stand out to you?

You know, I was all ready to write a few recommendations when I realized... I've played every single Exceptional Story, but never written my opinions on all of them. So here we are! Very much in-progress, but hopefully it'll be of use anyways.
