This question about being stuck in the story was just asked. I was going to answer it, but then I realized it might be worth it to create and answer a more general question about being stuck anywhere in the story, rather than that specific point, with the intent of then closing that user's question as a duplicate of the new question I was going to ask, so that new questions about being stuck in the story can be easily answered under the broader question.
This stems from the fact that there is a way to always, at any point in the story, check where the next objective is located and what the player needs to accomplish there.
Ideally, that's how I'd proceed, but some people have expressed concerns that this kind of behaviour might be perceived as rude towards the user who asked the question I linked. What is the appropriate course of action?
