Black History Month Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 5 Abraham Simpson I

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s update time in Springfield!  And after 8 years of TSTO, we’re finally tackling Black History Month!  No time like the present for EA, huh?   What’s in store for us this time?  Well, we’re tasked with finding out the history of Dr. Hibbert, Carl, Lou, and the Simpson Family!  Loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up.

Black History Month (Heroes of Springfield) follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Act 2 we’re tasked with collecting hard hats!  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the second part of the story, Carl’s history with his Dad!

So let’s take a look at final Act 2 prize, Abraham Simpson I…

Note: Act 2 has a funky end date for the site, it ends on Sunday the 23rd. So I’m posting the prize details for Abraham a bit earlier than I usually would.  Don’t stress if you haven’t unlocked him yet…you still have a lot of time.  Just trying to make my life a little easier 🙂

Abraham Simpson I is a brand new character for Springfield (NOT a costume for Bart…a full character for Springfield), and part of the Black History Character Collection:

Abraham I does come with a full questline, here’s a look at that questline:

Nature Walk Pt. 1
Abraham Simpson I starts

Abraham Simpson I: Can I have some wheel cakes, Mommy? I’m hungry.
Mabel Simpson: You just ate half a dozen!
Abraham Simpson I:Now I can eat the other half.
Mabel Simpson: No, you’ll spoil your supper.
Abraham Simpson I: D’oh. Um, can I go swimming instead, Mommy?
Mabel Simpson: That river current is too strong for you. Just play around the house where I can see you.

Abraham Simpson I: Okay, I’m gonna go wash behind my ears, then play outside. Heh heh.
Make Abraham Simpson I Play Outside- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp
Abraham Simpson I: Being outside sucks. Hm. Sucks. I wonder if anyone’s ever used that word as an insult. Maybe I just invented it! Woo hoo! *singing* Suck suck suck. Everything sucks. The trees, and the bees, and nature sucks. *Gasp* Ooh, a beautiful butterfly. I wanna smash it! C’mere you! Lemme smash you and put you in a book, so I can gaze at your beauty forever!

Nature Walk Pt. 2
Abraham Simpson I starts

Abraham Simpson I: Where did you go, butterfly? Come back! I won’t smash you, I’ll just starve you under a glass. Isn’t that better? Uh oh, I don’t recognize this part of the woods. It’s kinda scary. Maybe a witch lives here. Or a troll. Or an old man who sits around writing poetry all day! *shrieks* I can hear the river, maybe I can follow it home.
Make Abraham Simpson I Follow the River- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Abraham Simpson I: Ugh. Following rivers takes forever. It goes so much faster than me. Just look how fast those logs in it are going. Hmm. That gives me a brilliant idea. Abraham Simpson the First, you are the smartest boy in the whole world!

Nature Walk Pt. 3
Abraham Simpson I starts

Abraham Simpson I: I’ll explain my idea to myself out loud, just to make sure I got it. I’ll get on top of one of these driftwood logs on the riverbank, kick it into the river, then ride that log like a horsey all the way home. When I get to a place I recognize, I’ll safely stop and get off the speeding river somehow. Here I go!
Make Abraham Simpson I Ride That Log Like a Horse- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Abraham Simpson I: Gah! This is nothing like riding a horse! It’s scary, it smells bad, and it’s hurting my crotch! I’m going too fast. Help! Help!!!
Virgil Simpson: Abraham Simpson, is that you, son?
Abraham Simpson I: Which Abraham Simpson are you looking for?
Virgil Simpson: The first!
Abraham Simpson I: Yes, it’s me, Poppa! Help! It’s an emergency!

Nature Walk Pt. 4
Virgil starts

Virgil Simpson: Son! What’re you doing on that log?
Abraham Simpson I: I was trying to ride it home. I thought it was the local, but it must be the express.
Virgil Simpson: I’m gonna throw you this rope. Grab onto it!
Abraham Simpson I:  Okay. I’m gonna put all my focus on catching the r– Ooh, there’s that butterfly!
Make Abraham Simpson I  Catch the Rope- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Abraham Simpson I: I got it!
Virgil Simpson: I’m gonna pull you in. Do not drop the rope to grab the butterfly.
Abraham Simpson I: Okay, but now that you said it, it’s all I can think about.
Virgil Simpson: Don’t drop that dang rope, boy! If you drown today, I’m gonna give you such a spanking!
Abraham Simpson I: Yes, sir.

Nature Walk Pt. 5
Mabel starts

Mabel Simpson: Look who’s home. Where have you two been? And why is Abe all wet?
Abraham Simpson I: I was, uh, out chasing butterflies when I fell in the–
Virgil Simpson: –horse’s water trough! Clumsy little man. Just got a little wet is all. Certainly didn’t risk death, or anything.
Mabel Simpson: Alright, get ready for supper you two.
Abraham Simpson I: Wow, thanks for covering for me, Poppa. If Mommy woulda found out I was by the river, she would’ve spanked me somethin’ awful.
Virgil Simpson: I’m not gonna tell her, son. Because you’re gonna give me all your wheel cakes for a month.
Abraham Simpson I: Awwwww. Is it too late to just drown instead?

  1. I unlocked him today and was disappointed to see his 4 and 8 hour tasks are at the Brown House. I like that he can go to the Deep Dark Woods for his first task but like SB GIBBS said, he should go to Virgil’s Cabin for his 4 and 8 hour tasks as default then the Brown House if VC is stored or not owned. I also wish that EA would change donuts to wheel cakes for his 12 hour task. I was also disappointed to see that all of his questline located at the Brown House. I like his visual tasks but can’t decide which one is better. 🍩👕🌲

  2. On the last task and must say what a bore, no excitement, another younger version of a Simpson, 😴😴😴💤💤💤

    • It does feel More Grinding Less Rewarding until you obtain Abraham Jedediah Simpson I (his Visual Tasks are fun) …. but I won’t defend EA – when they do it right, they get complimented (when they don’t, they get constructive criticism).

  3. I like that Abraham uses the Deep Dark Woods but why on Earth wouldn’t he have Virgil’s cabin as the default for his 4 and 8 hours tasks? L-EA-ZY!
    I appreciate this post being a little early Alissa as I’ll get Abraham later today. As a funny coincidence, I just got Abraham’s namesake, President Lincoln out of the Yearbook mystery box today 😃

    • Lincoln at his Cabin chopping wood is a great Visual Task …. now I wonder if there is Content in Act 3, or Act 4, that will offer Abraham Jedediah Simpson I a place to Task 🤔 (no defending EA, they earn praise and constructive criticism pending on their efforts).

    • I only just got him. If EA can make it so that Abe I can use the Deep Dark Woods (a decoration from 3 months ago) then I don’t see why they can’t do the same thing for Virgil’s Cabin (a building from 4 years ago that returns every year for the Christmas events). I just hope Mabel and/or Virgil will have a permanent task at the cabin when they appear. Congrats on getting Lincoln in the yearbook, consider it a late president’s day gift.

  4. Abraham Simpson I aka Abraham Jedediah Simpson the 1st (❤️ how he’s pictured throwing the goat with 4 fingers while holding a 🍩 on a plate) and let’s get the ‘Family History’ out of the way:

    Father: Virgil Simpson
    Mother: Mabel Simpson

    Wife: Gabby Simpson
    Sons: “Old Tut” Simpson, Hugo Simpson, Gaston Simpson, Lou Simpson
    Daughter: Dulcine Simpson

    Grandson: Orville Simpson
    Great Grandson: Abe Jedediah Simpson II (Grandpa Simpson)
    Great Great Grandson: Homer Simpson
    Great Great Great Grandson: Bart Simpson
    Great Great Great Granddaughters: Lisa Simpson, Maggie Simpson

    Will we see those Family Members mentioned above in TSTO that are still not available? (if we do, will they be voiced?) EA has done stranger things, so it could happen. 🤔

    It’s kinda funny to see who Bart Simpson takes after (his Great Great Great Grandfather!) as well as where Homer Simpson gets his ❤️ for 🍩’s (mmmmm wheelcakes!) I do ❤️ the Character (not voiced, but he has fun Visual Tasks!), I just wish L-EA-Z-Y would quit relying on the Brown House to send Characters for Tasks (we need more than the Deep Dark Woods as an alternate, which means EA needs to introduce a new Building, or Decor, related to Abe Simpson I). 🤔

    I’ve been ready for Act 3, and hoping we get more Content worthwhile vs ….. well you already know. 😂

  5. AW … no outside visual for the 4hr task… or even 8hr task…. that sucks… oh well… it is what it is…

    • True

      We’ve had various new Characters with 12 and 24 Hour Visual Tasks (something different, I’m ok with it vs seeing another Character get sent to the Brown House).

      • When you send the characters from the Unemployment office, they usually go to the “overpay…. something, something” task INSIDE a building or the Brown House…. the game should have an option to send characters to visual or non visual tasks for those that have that option… for all the time slots.. 1hr, 4hr, 8hr, 12, 24…

        • Yeah , Tappers are stuck locating each Character individually to send them on a Visual Task , which makes the Employment Building used to send a majority of Characters on timed Tasks redundant / a failure (when you have next to 400 Characters ; or more – there has to be a better way to manage Tasks and I’d pay 🍩’s for it).
