Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s officially after 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Act 4 of the Black History Event is live in Springfield!
Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue between Lou, Quimby, Wiggum, and Grampa…among others:
Quimby: Officer Lou, please accept this medal of honor… or bravery… or something. I can’t read the font.
Wiggum: Hey, I was there too!
Quimby: Here is a coupon for five percent off all kazoos at King Toot’s.
Wiggum: *impressed noise*
Quimby: Well, we’ve honored our hero for Black History Month. My job here is done. I’m going to Cabo.
Grampa: Hold it right there! I happen to know a great Black Springfieldian who deserves to be honored.
Quimby: For the last time, Disco Stu is not black. I believe he is Armenian.
Grampa: I’m talking about my ancestor, Virgil Simpson, ya idjit!
Homer: Sorry. He’s a little senile. I assure you, no Simpson ever did anything great.
Grampa: He invented an old timey pastry called wheel cakes, or as we know them today – donuts!
Homer: *gasp* Everyone shut up and listen to the story of the greatest man who ever lived!
This triggers the Act 4 questline, From the Mouth of Abes, and is followed by 4hr task for everyone to listen to Grampa, as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (350). From the Mouths of Abes is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Act 4 prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 4…
Here’s EA’s synopsis for Act 4:
Abe relates the tale of Simpsons ancestor, Virgil Simpson. How he hid out in a circus, met Mabel and fled north along the Underground Railroad, and invented…wheel cakes!
As I stated above, you’ll basically go right into the From the Mouths of Abes questline, which is what the Act 4 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 4 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 4….
I’ll lay out specifically what you need to do for each part in the turbo tappin’ post, but I don’t want any of you to get messed up with this. So don’t forget to SCROLL!
Here are the prizes for Part 4:
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
