Tut, Tut my good ladies and gents…we are awash in the best of “Jolly Old England” in our Springfields. The heisting continues, but it is almost secondary to the cool buildings and prizes up for grabs in this Act.
I admit to being a bit of an Anglophile, so I am stoked to get some of the buildings and special decorations that have graced my imagination and book shelves for most of my lifetime. And, if you have to steal a few jewels to get it all? So be it!
First Prize- Tower of Springfield!
Of course, this is modeled loosely on the “Tower of London,” which is at the basis of tons and tons of macabre stories of Henry VIII and his form of “divorce.” I’ve visited the real tower, and it is simply about as cool a combination of history, murder, and intrigue as it gets. Wanna see the REAL Crown Jewels? That’s the place. Wanna see the “Bloody tower” where so many of England’s most notorious lost their heads? That’s the place. It is a must see if you go to London.
And it is a MUST HAVE if you are playing Act II…because ALL of the action happens there. Just like Act I…it is where the “heists” are planned, most of your crafting and event currency comes from, and the place that you have to build up in regards to earning Bonus % so you can “complete the scene.”
Here are the basics….
After you collect 140 (gems)….I know…they look like water balloons…) you will be rewarded with…
And then…just like the last first prize…you will place it to start the action. And Yes…it takes a TON of space. But that is because you also need room for the Bonus Zone.
Remember…the Bonus Zone is where you will place crafting items to Add Bonus Percent for Earning of Event Currency. In this case, you are limited to soldiers and phone booths (two varieties of each), which must be placed with at least one square touching the Bonus Zone.
The Tower is where you are also going to send off your “Heist Planners” every 4 hours. And if you are smart…and don’t want to get behind…you will plan to clear and replace them every 4 hours. There are a TON of possible players this round. So, it should be EAsy.
Here are the Basics…
Act 2 Prize 1- Tower of Springfield
Bonus Area: 4×19 Around Tower
Earns: Nothing at the moment, when event ends it should earn income every 24hrs
Can Be Placed: grass|dirt|pavement
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +10 (and who doesn’t want to be obedient with a chopping block in the court yard?).
That’s it… get to work.
Next Prize (which we will skip) is a Free Land Token. After that, the Lifesize Sir Walter Raleigh in a Can!
