Delicious and festive friends! We have just released new content: a story called the Gift, available for 30 Nex.


What is this mysterious parcel, sitting so flirtatiously on your doorstep? What is inside? Who is it from? By all means open it, but be careful where your curiosity leads you.


The Gift is a tale of terror, aberration, and the horrors beneath the Palace. Meet the troubled Mr. Hathhorn. Undertake a nightmarish, chthonic journey. And - for the first time - learn the secrets of the Empress' progeny.


To begin the story, look for a storylet available throughout London called "The Gift". It'll remain there throughout the festive season, then we'll move it to the Nex page. We'll also be adding A Trade in Faces to the Nex page, too, for those who missed it or would like to replay it.

Exciting!

But is it supposed to be "available throughout London"? I only see the storylet in my Lodgings.

Will it still be the same price (30 Nex) when moved to the Nex page?
(It's just that I have neither the required Fate nor *quite* the money spare to buy Nex right now, so I'd like to check first rather than wait and find it's changed.)

The temptation to turn around is so great, but it's tempered by the fear that it will end the story early....

It won't end the story early. Beyond that, I make no promises.

  • A slight confusion, into these matters. I chose not to look, as caution keeps one alive. And now there is nothing to do. Is this intended, or have I missed some critical thing beyond being trapped in the cellars?

    Will there be an option to replay it, so as to pursue other options, like there was with A Trade in Souls?

    I can dream, at least.

    This sounds like a bug - could you send in a bug report with your character name, and I'll take a look.

    That's the plan! Once we move it to the Nex page we want to make this an option.

    To turn or not to turn, that is the question
    Whether 'tis nobler to bear the weight of knowing
    Or resist that which tempts me
    And in resisting, accept an ignorant life
    Should I not pay the cost
    So that others may live happier?
    Or in so doing do I serve only my own weakness?
    No. 'Tis not weakness to face the frightening
    There is no frailty in seeking answers
    Ignorance is the slow death of fools
    I shall turn and face the truth
    I shall not be...

    I think this is the best thirty nex I ever spent.

    Possibly excepting some of the Destiny/Masquing content.
