The Chain: Three issues long?

Postby Thistledom » Tue Jul 21, 2015 8:38 am

Hello all,

I was really excited to finally, finally get The Chain to start for my nation. I was especially careful to log in to NS every day to address my issues so I wouldn't lose one... and after the third one, I'm back to a normal, non-Chain issue.

The news post said "This 19-issue story has different routes in which to travel, all with different endings.". Is it possible I picked a route that ended after the third one? Or does it take breaks and another Chain issue will crop up somewhere down the line?

I'm just so disappointed, I was waiting for the Chain for so long, I didn't expect it to be over so fast.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Looking at your National Happenings, you got four issues in the Chain- 387, 389, 391, and 405. The entire Chain has been mapped here (top of the first post), so you can go through and see the path you took. I did that myself, and I can see that yes, you took one of the shorter paths. Unfortunately, when the Chain is over, it's over. If you want to get it again, you'll have to use a puppet that hasn't gotten it yet.
Romans 1:18-2:29, Ephesians 2:1-10
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! | Those people are on a dark spiral downward. But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. | It’s a wonder God didn’t lose His temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, He embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on His own, with no help from us!

1. The Chain has 19 different issues, but no path uses all of them. I think the longest is six. The one you took was only three issues long.
2. You only get the Chain once.

Ah drat. I thought it would go through all 19 of them. Thanks for the link though! At least I can read them all.
