November Exceptional Story: The Sinking Synod

By Haley Uyrus, October 26, 2017 · Exceptional Friendship Fallen London

Delicious friends, the Exceptional Story for November is here!


A new diocese has been proposed for London! Journey to Bugsby’s Marsh where you’ll quarrel with vicars, sermonise at deacons and frustrate nuns as you decide who’ll be the new Bishop of Watchmaker’s Hill.

The Sinking Synod is the third and final story in the Season of Sceptres, and was written by Gavin Inglis. This season, experience three stories that involve the use and abuse of power in an array of London professions. You can begin each from the Season of Sceptres card.

At the end of the season, players who have completed all three will go a step farther, unlocking bonus content involving the exiled Injurious Princess, and her plan to reclaim the throne of Vesture.

Editing and QA: James Chew and Caolain Porter.

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 Sceptres 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.
