Greetings, greetings!



First, I want to start with a big thanks to everyone that contributed with info in the past 2 and a half year. Big thanks, delicious Londoners! This thread is about the requirement sheet that I try to maintain and I think a thread will make things easier for me, but also make me prioritize a bit more. The idea about this sheet is to gather in one place all exquisite ES story requirements which unlock different options, but with zero spoilers and no context.

Many of these options aren't required to progress through the story and they only add extra flavour to it. Sometimes it's worth it, sometimes it's not and everyone will judge that aspect. I am thankful to FBG for adding such neat options which aren't visible until you meet the exact requirements.
This means that there still may be undiscovered ones!


It goes like this:
- bold blue are options which require a confirmation, a quality level or maybe a removal
- basic requirements are avoided if you can go back and obtain that item/quality.
- if the requirement requires a certain level of grind, it is added (Discernment's Brandy requirements)
- some options are mutually exclusive and are marked by "OR" (My Kingdom for a Pig: "Any OR several OR all Fidgeting Writer item")
- other options have multiple requirements marked by "AND"
- some options have basic item requirements, but I am not sure if those can be obtain during the story. To avoid any issues, those aren't marked as uncertain (bold blue)


As you can see, there are a some requirements that aren't that certain, but I am sure there are others that weren't yet discovered or recorded. Two example of such are The Chimney Pot Wars (July 2016) which has an option regarding The Cheery Man's Fate (story release released in 2017) and My Kingdom for a Pig (July 2019) which has an option for Oenologonaut (House of Chimes quality) which was reported by only one player.

Starting today I will try and revive this thread on a monthly basis and add the already gathered data (if any).

Well, this is very timely. I have celebrated my big decade birthday today by purchasing 280 fate!

What will I spend it on? Who knows? But Tauroktonos is calling me. A Mithraic Temple!

Send me anything you like. Be decent, though. Bad stuff is fine if you attach a warning.

Wow, congratulations!!! smile
I have this ES glossary bookmarked, but there were a lot of public polls made by rahv7 over Reddit; here's the January '21 edition.
I have a backlog of 50+ stories, but I did play HOJO and it's one of my favourite ones. As you can see, after all these years, it's #3 in the poll after stories which are widely considered the best.

Thank you!

I'm continuing to suffer indecision. It's a terrible plague. Not only which stories to buy, but which chocolates to eat, and which yarn to buy with my voucher. I am a mad knitter - if you are not acquainted with any of those, just think of your own favourite hobby and how premium tools and materials can get tempting and expensive. My partner owns 5 bicycles and enough brewing kit to stock a miniature pub, for example.

BTW, you might like to edit your sheet with a bit more explanation now you've so kindly made it public. Some of the "requirements", as I know from recent stories, only open extra options. You can sill play the story without them.

As with many/all hobbies. Taking it to the professional level and adding premium materials/tool/everything does make one feel great! I love when I see people that progress through their hobbies like Neathizens do with their ambitions!

The sheet is open to the public for more than two years and in all that time this never struck me!

Ah, perhaps I am still too new to understand what most people take for granted. I feel at times like a kindergartener in the high school when I read these forums.

Hehe, enjoy that feeling because in FL that had a different and intriguing taste! You are actually a newcommer into the Neath and everything is different, curious and out of place.
With time, all these will change and you will love it!
