F.F. Gebrandt's Prelapsarian Exhibition (Guide)
F.F. Gebrandt CORDIALLY INVITES All Londoners to participate in the Raising of a New Museum of Prelapsarian History & accompanying Exhibition, to put on Display Curiosities Historical, Palaeontological, & Philosophical.
The Prelapsarian Exhibition was London's summer festival in 2022. It commenced on July 25th and completed on August 5th.
The Museum itself remained a place to visit after the story closed. It can be found in Veilgarden.

Museum Construction (Completed)
The initial collaborative activity of the event is the construction of the museum.
|Perform backbreaking labour||Toil||scaling|
|Negotiate with rats||Persuasive 80 challenge||Toil||scaling|
|Soothe recalcitrant investors||Respectable 9 challenge||Toil||scaling|
|Deliver a load of sphinxstone||Requires A Hold Full of Sphinxstone||Materials||6250|

|For the first three options, Curator's Gratitude gain scales with your base Attributes, with the labour option giving slightly less reward than the other two (with the trade-off that it has no challenge or cost). You can contribute sphinxstone (which requires a short Zail to the Salt Lions) once per day; the option becomes available again 23 hours after your last delivery.|

An Investigation (Completed)
The fourth stage of the event begins with the storylet A Royal Visitor.
After playing through this storylet, you will have the opportunity to decide whether to purchase a ushabti. You can participate in the investigation without one, but some content will only be available with the ushabti.
Once the game is afoot, you can check the Developments in an Ongoing Investigation storylet to find out what's been uncovered so far. Putting the Pieces Together (Prelapsarian Crisis) contains some background about the ubshati. Have some of that coffee to obtain another one-week Mood Hat, Lingering Excitation, with a +20 bonus to Watchful and Dangerous.
Note: All 18 clues have been found. You can go looking for them on your own, without hints, if you like. For a list of the clue locations, Examine what has been uncovered. Find at least 3 clues for a unique reward and 10 for an achievement quality.
