Back "Enthusiastic Urchin" to game!
It definitely would be interesting to see what ideas Failbetter has floating around for post-Sunless Skies content, though I think it's safe to say it might be a while before we see developments on that front.

To address the request behind the request, though, I don't think it's clear at all that if the Enthusiastic Urchin returned, they'd come bearing Fate. Failbetter has (rightfully) moved away from a Fate-reward system towards more unique in-game currencies; for instance, while the original Mysteries rewarded correct answers with Fate, the redesign Mysteries rewarded correct answers with Regnant Coins to be traded in. The most recent Enthusiastic Urchin, if I recall correctly (the one that led to Sunless Skies) rewarded Darkdrop Coffee instead of Fate.

Furthermore, Failbetter has been making a concerted push to leverage its social media for promotional purposes, especially Twitter: this year's candidates were released on Twitter (and Discord) rather than the FBG blog, the Sunless Skies tie-in access codes were released via Twitter, and several Sunless Skies Kickstarter social goals focused on reaching follower goals for their social media. Essentially, while the Enthusiastic Urchin may return to survey the Fallen London base, Failbetter's social media operations have grown and may eventually (or perhaps already have) made the Enthusiastic Urchin obsolete.

    Copy/pasting from another thread, I think these ideas have merit:

    millea wrote:
    [...] Another idea would be, perhaps, to make some of the smaller - or older, or less wildly popular - ES free to play. One free ES a year would already be something nice for the free players, and paid customers will still be getting a whole lot of dedicated content. [...]


    Optimatum wrote:
    [...] I'd love to see Failbetter let people choose a free Exceptional Story. We have over four years of them by now. Offer a choice from a handful of the popular older ones. Then free players get a treat while some people decide to buy other stories. It's only awkward for players who've already played all the offered stories, but I certainly wouldn't say no to replaying an old favorite for free. [...]


    With the constantly increasing number of Exceptional Stories, I do think at some point some kind of discount model should be implemented. In addition to the ideas above, I could see something like "Subscribe this month and you get the current ES plus an older one for free". Maybe this would work especially well during the Festivals, when (I guess) lots of irregular players who don't often or ever subscribe are drawn back to the game. This might give them an additional incentive to subscribe.

    Mr Candles, Failbetter is always being vey considerate and thoughtful of our Feedback as this thread proves. Could you please change your tone? I understand the language barrier, but I doubt it is stopping you from being polite when discussing something.

    Please, please, please bring back "Who Else is Here?" The game seems so dead without it. You have to go outside the game to find people to interact with, and I don't think that is a good thing.

    Please relax with the downvoting, people. Tier 4 professions and Ambition endings are perfectly reasonable requests.

    @MrCandles: I believe Failbetter said finishing the Ambitions is planned to happen soon. We don't know exactly when, but they haven't been abandoned.

    I think the problem is the tone and the individualism in most of his posts. He, himself and him.
    Everyone wants finished ambitions, T4 professions and a glimpse of a possible future.

    "Who else is here?" had another useful function. It would let you know whether a character was logged in currently, and thus was still being actively played.

    Mostly this. Not every player is active in the social platforms. I know I only visit the forums, and I did that only after a year of playing. "Who else..." made social actions possible.

    It seems that I misinterpreted the text to mean that one gender had a vote and one did not, (let alone as to where that left characters of mysterious and indistinct gender). As a result I felt offended and wrote a lot in support of why that gender should get the vote. Still, I am sure I can't be the only disenfranchised female player who takes the issue to heart.

    My one big question is, why, then, in a game that otherwise tries quite hard with gender balance, are women the only ones singled out for text about not having the vote? Why doesn`t it say, `one day all citizens might vote` or something similar?

    Wouldn`t deleting those few words greatly improve the game whilst not affecting the gameplay at all?


    If no one has a vote then deleting the confusing references to one specific gender not being allowed to vote would make the whole thing a non-issue, as well as a lot clearer to players.


    Graduate Advice is a terrible card all round and should be retired. Why is there no pair Graduate Advice card for men? Why can I advise an educated woman to stay home and raise a family but not a man? Why can't I advise her to buy a ship and build a trading empire? Why not at least something that ties in with the university like advise her to study bats?

    Characters not really vote. They just work as agitators, fixers or campaigners. Only head of guild vote to Lord Mayor. So female characters not vote. You are wrong. If you are SJW, you are entirely wrong.

    Babel: MrCandles has been banned for persistent low-value posts and incivility, and for not making any recognisable efforts to improve in these respects after a warning.

    Edit: MrCandles/Hermione has also had their FL accounts deactivated, for seeking to evade a forum ban.

    Why banned? He is right.


    Just saying, MrCandles has an alt called Hermione Granger. He linked to it somewhere at some point...

    I haven't gotten the "A familiar face by the school railings" card in ages, even though I have all the unlock qualities for it.

    Has this got anything to do with the card drawing bug?



    Update: I finally got the card but it took way longer than in the past.
