About the Story
An uninvited visitor appears in the fog. He seeps into your lodgings and occupies the bathtub; he spills crumbs on your carpet and tea on your favourite chair. What does this fog-man want – and how can you get him to leave? And why is he so fixated on chess?

This Fallen London exceptional story is pretty good.
Fog has encroached on London, and out of it steps a bizarre foggy figure that walks around your house, using your stuff and playing chess a lot.
As you investigate this disturbance, you learn more about a cult and a conspiracy that draws in some of the strangest features of Fallen London: (mild spoiler) (Spoiler - click to show)unusual biology and the Elder continent. Emotionally, this game deals well with a certain kind of loss without becoming too maudlin.
Unlike most exceptional stories, this has some very different endings that can be hard to achieve. If you're really invested in one outcome and don't want to pay money for a reset, it's worth looking up or getting advice online.
