Delicious friends, the Exceptional Story for April is here!
A Conscientious Nurse. A Besotted Poet. A Garrulous Devil. Untangle a knot of love and duty among the sooty tenements of London’s working poor. But be warned: in this tale of hard lives and hard choices there is no peace to be made between the devils, the honey, and the heart.
The Heart, the Devil and the Zee is the second story in the Season of Stones, and was written by Olivia Wood and James Chew. This Season involves three linked stories delving into the hardships and injustices at the heart of London. Players will be able begin each story from the Season of Stones card.
At the end of the season, players who played all three will unlock bonus content allowing them to address – or profit from – London’s inequity.

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 Stones 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 current Season’s card throughout London. This will save it for you to return to another time.
