Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Note: As I mentioned yesterday, EA changed the start dates for all the Acts. Act 2 was supposed to start yesterday, but the start date is now today. Act 3 has moved from the 26th to 27th & Act 4 from the 4th to the 5th. The event still ends January 13th. That’s how it sits now…unless of course, EA decides to change it again…
Also, I would have had this up sooner, but it snowed here in NJ. Whenever it snows here, or gets super cold, I like to crank the heat up in my car and blast Kenny Chesney music and pretend I live anywhere south (ie warmer) of this Godforsaken state. So I got a little wrapped up in my morning commute and took my sweet time driving. Anyway, on with the update…
In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo! It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO! Act 2 of the Clash of Creeds Christmas Royale is upon us! Also always, 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…
Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on January 13th. However, Act 3 will start on December 27th (Note the Sunday start date).
Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between Marge and Ned…
Ned: This Movementarian malarky is starting to look like a movement. We need to find a way to stop it and get our sheep back into their proper fold.
Marge: Maybe we should consult an expert on cults?
Ned: Good idea!
This triggers the Act 2 questline, Hallowed Be Thy Shame, and is followed by a 4hr task for Ned and Marge, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (150). Hallowed Be Thy Shame is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 2…
Here’s the Act 2 Synopsis from EA:
Marge and Flanders decide to consult Lovejoy for help, though Lovejoy provides little guidance and
Flanders resorts to the power of prayer. Through his prayer, Flanders summons the Baby Jesus to
Springfield to help. Baby Jesus goes to the Movementarian compound to try to convince Homer to leave, but he too is brainwashed with the promise of frazzle removal and spaceship rides, and falls into the cult. Flanders has nowhere else to turn, so he goes to consult Santa (though in this case, it’s Krusty Claus doing the Santa circuit at the mall). Flanders doesn’t know how to compete with the Movementarian spaceship in his attempts to lure Homer away from the cult, so he borrows Krusty Claus self-flying sled and flies it over the compound. Not knowing what it is, Baby Jesus borrows the Leader’s rifle and blasts Flanders out of the sky.
Marge and Flanders know that Christianity isn’t going to solve this one, and they need some old school
fire and brimstone, so they turn to Rabbi Krustofsky.
As I stated above, you’ll go right into the Hallowed Be Thy Shame questline, which is what the Act 2 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 2 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 2…
DO NOT FORGET TO SCROLL UP AND DOWN IN THE TASK BOXES (PICTURED ABOVE) TO BE SURE TO COMPLETE ALL TASKS FOR EACH PART.
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 2:
Nativity Recycling (Decoration)– Hallowed Be Thy Shame Pt. 1 and 150
Santa’s Workshop Sign (Decoration) Once earned, unlocks Christmas Fence for purchase in store.- Hallowed Be Thy Shame Pt. 2 and 150
Cult Flying Saucer (Decoration) Returning Content. If already owned, this is replaced with a Holiday 2020 mystery box token.- Hallowed Be Thy Shame Pt. 3 and 150
Self-Flying Sled (Decoration)– Hallowed Be Thy Shame Pt. 4 and 150
Gospel for Less (Building)– Hallowed Be Thy Shame Pt. 5 and 175
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks for Act 2:
The Leader (New Premium)
Baby Jesus (New Premium)
Each Act will have a new premium character that will earn event currency. From what I can see, based on the info from EA, characters will be used throughout the entire event. So Act 1 will be used in Act 2, 3, and 4…etc.
Act 1 Prizes
These are STILL unlockable if you haven’t completed that prize track. You have until the event ends to unlock ALL the prizes. So keep going with the earlier Acts if you haven’t yet finished it. You have until January 13th to finish those…
Here’s what’s included today…well technically yesterday, but it was meant for Act 2:
All other returning content, that arrived during Act 1 remains until the event ends. (including the Mystery Boxes)
And that’s it my friends. The details of Act 2 of the 2020 Christmas Event!
