How a Storybook Event works
1. It's not that you have one day to complete a chapter - it's that another chapter won't UNLOCK until the next day.
2. If you finish the chapter early, you have to wait for the remainder of the time to expire before the next chapter starts. You have to complete a chapter to begin the next chapter.
3. If you take longer than a day to complete a chapter then the next one will start sooner.
4. If you gem skip a chapter, the next one doesn't start sooner (you will wait even longer!).
ISSUES, BUGS and FIXES!
no, don't buy another one. I've already reported this... + DON'T buy a second sapling either - it has the same glitch. This is being investigated.I saw the forest workshop and bought it. Built it. Now It tells me to buy one. Doesn't recognize that I have it. Would buy another but can't find it. Help!
