I'm not actually sure if this is a bug or me being an idiot, so I thought it perhaps best to post in the forums before writing up a petition.

I can't seem to trigger the second part of the Stranger quest (the one in the NewHome Museum). I only know that it even exists because I went poking about the wiki to see if there is in fact resolution to the Stern Punishment storyline. I've finished the second Rohit quest (in which he goes to the NewHome Museum), I've done the Stern Punishment quest, the Maiko's Pan quest, and I'm almost positive I've encountered the 3rd Watcher story.

I did, however, run from the Stranger in the first Stranger quest, so I'm wondering if perhaps this is an issue. I ran because, well, my character would have run in terror from that. I read in an earlier forum thread that this was a problem (running from the Stranger preventing subsequent quests from triggering), but that thread was about a year ago and CMJ mentioned fixing it as a priority.

So, I suppose my question is: bug or am I missing something terribly obvious?

That's it. It makes the second quest impossible to trigger, last I knew.

Sucks.

Oh blast it. Do you know if this is a feature or a bug or if it's possible to, I don't know, have my first stranger quest reset so I can not run? If I'd known from the start that I'd miss out on the endings/continuations of two story arcs, I wouldn't have run away.

Regardless, thank you for the answer! At least now I know what the issue is.

I can reset that for you.

And, anyone else with the same problem -- just ask and you can have another chance.

(The quest was originally intended to have branching storylines... which didn't work out. CMJ will be getting to that one of these days to take out the branching; in the meantime, I can fold the people who ran* back into the main story.)

* Understandably ran! The Stranger is terrifying.

Oh thank you! Shall I put in a petition or is that not necessary?

I can see how the Stranger quest could easily have branching storylines. That would have been neat. Just curious: how come that didn't work out? Too much of the system's resources taken up?

Fair enough! The writing itself is brilliant, which is really the reason why I don't want to miss out on any subsequent storyline.

Welp -- it's done.

Everyone who ran from the Stranger -- the game now thinks they didn't run, so they will get to carry on with the rest of the linked storylines.

I do have a list of the accounts I just changed. If anyone fiercely objects and wishes to be cut off again, they are welcome to contact me. I am, er... not expecting a huge rush of calls for that, because, hey, it's CMJ's writing!

I imagine they can just re-say no.

Nope - we just get a letter from Stern about the thing in his museum.
