The Teaser for this event said, “It’s a battle for the ages! Wait, we mean a battle of the ages – kids and adults are at war in Springfield! But what could cause this generational divide – Unfair bedtimes? Too many vegetables? Territory rights to the town’s new playground? (That last one was so specific it has to be true). Can Bart lead the youths to victory over Homer’s aged army and claim Springfield’s new Mega Playscape?
This is the kind of event where you really need a “program to keep track of the players.” Bart Royale is less like a “royal flush,” and more like a game of 52 card pickup! But, that said, we do get a load of new items that are fun, and in some cases darn right rewarding for our efforts!
Once Pyro is placed, he will kick off a dialogue and set of tasks…
Rube Tube Pt. 1
Bart : Is that Pyro?
Pyro : Hey kiddo. How ‘bout an autograph? Not yours. Mine.
Bart : I’ll pass. What have you been up to?
Pyro : I’m in a competition for a trophy named Luann.
Luann : Oh, hey Chase. We had some fun times…
Luann : Fun, fun times…
Luann : But I’m back with Kirk.
Bart : Oh, man! Out Van Houten’d by a Kirk!
Pyro : I need to be more than Luann’s ex-lover. It’s time I got back into the stunt business.
Rube Tube Pt. 2
Pyro : Hey kid, how’s the film business around here?
Bart : Pretty dead.
Pyro : Television?
Bart : If Krusty’s the best show, you’ve got a problem.
Pyro : What do people watch!?
Bart : Mostly ViewTube. Here, check out this guy. He makes top ten hits by GETTING hit.
Pyro : Airbursts? Flash Pots? Gerbs? Pyrotechnics cost money. How can he afford these?
Bart : He’s sponsored and has tons of followers. He makes more money now then you ever did on TV.
Rube Tube Pt. 3
Pyro : If any Joe Schmo can film falls, hits, and explosions like this, then I can! I spent years as a stuntman and television performer.
Bart : There’s a little more to it than just pointing a camera at yourself…
Pyro : Mmmm…doesn’t look like it to me.
Pyro : One question though: Are cameras still as big as a toolbox and sit on your shoulder?
Bart : Here, let’s order you a NoPro.
Rube Tube Pt. 4
Pyro : Hey Pyro-maniacs! Pyro here broadcasting my first video.
Pyro : I’m going to show you some classic stunts from my day.
Pyro : None of this snorting cinnamon or taking golf balls to the nards nonsense. No, these stunts could actually kill me!
Pyro : Are you ready to be thrilled!? The heat is on, so let’s go!
Rube Tube Pt. 5
Pyro : Okay, how do I get this into the tube webs?
Bart : Let’s check out what you got.
Bart : *laughs hysterically* You’ve got the camera pointed at your face the whole time! All we see are your dippy facial expressions.
Bart : You look like you’re cleaning up barf and are about to blow chow yourself. I am definitely uploading this!
Pyro : NO!
Pyro : I don’t know how I can face my fans now.
Bart : Pyro! You’ve got two million views already! And a puke sawdust company wants to sign you to a commercial series!
Pyro : Pyro is back!
His Indoor Tasks are: At Android’s Dungeon (Autographs), The Van Houtens (checking in on Luann), and Kwik-E-Mart (Accidental Sightings).
That’s It for the Prizes in Act 1… but now, you can forget about the general tasks, and go back to collecting beer bottles to earn Bonuts! (just like my real life!).
Tell us what you think of the Event so far! Are you laughing? Are you confused with why Luann seems to have been with half of the men in Springfield? Let us know what you think!
