Love and War 2021 Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 5 Cyrus Manly

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the event…time for another fun and exciting prize post!  Yes, I know they’re your favorite, don’t even try to deny it.  Ok, you can deny it.  I think we probably feel the same way about these….but they still must be done! Otherwise, what else would I refer people back to when they ask what something does 6 months from now?  Act 2 of the Love and War event consists of 1 new decoration, 1 building, 1 new animated task and one new character. (oh and one Mystery Box token…)

So let’s take a look at the final prize on the Act 2 Prize Track: Cyrus Manly…

Love Thy Neighbor-ino Pt. 1
Cyrus starts

Cyrus Manley: Good lord, where am I? Wherever this is, it sure looks…needy. Oh, this must be a test! What’s that, Lord? You want me to clean this place up in your honor? Consider it done! You there, you look like you’re…needy. Perhaps I could assist in the name of the Almighty?
Chester Lampwick: I don’t need any assistance in anybody’s name. I could buy this town if I wanted to.
Cyrus Manley: Of course you could. But in the meantime, let me guide you on a new path. Specifically the path to a neighboring town with better social programs for the…needy.

Make Lampwick Go to Shelbyville- 4hrs

Love Thy Neighbor-ino Pt. 2
Cyrus starts

Cyrus Manley: Now that vagrancy is down, what else can I do to clean this town up in His name? I know! I’ll get the people who can actually afford church donations to attend Sunday’s service. Time to go door to door.
Ned: *answering door* Hi diddly-oh there, fella. What can I do ya for?
Cyrus Manley: Greetings! Might I have a moment of your time to regale you with the wonders of our Lord?
Ned: Well now I was just going to regale you with the same thing! Come on in and make yourself at home. The boys and I were just about to play our favorite multiplayer online game, “God is Among Us”.
Make Cyrus Manley Play With Ned and the Boys- 8hrs
Ned: Golly, Cyrus. That’s an awfully powerful way to win the game by smashing all our phones, but if it’s all in the name of the Lord…
Cyrus Manley: It was. Those devices you call phones are nothing but the work of the devil.
Ned: Yeah, the ones from Mapple sure are.
Cyrus Manley: Well, I’d best get going. I still have many a door to knock on if I’m gonna fill the pews this Sunday.
Ned: Okely-dokely. We’ll be there too. Though we may have less money for the collection plate since we all need new phones.

Love Thy Neighbor-ino Pt. 3
Cyrus starts

Ned: That Cyrus fella sure is a heck of a Christian. Is it Christian to let someone be more Christian than yourself? On the other hand, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s Christianity.” I better up my game just to be safe. Time for a Christian-off! Rod. Todd. Get your towels, we’re hosting a community feet-washing drive!
Rod: Yaaay!  I’ll use Mommy’s perfume just like Mary Magdelene did!
Ned: *getting choked up* That – makes me cry – for several reasons.
Cyrus Manley: Hey there, sorry to bother you again. But did I leave a towel here? I’m hosting a feet-washing drive.
Ned: God bless it!
Make Cyrus Manley Search for His Towel- 8hrs
Make Ned Get Out-Christian-ed- 8hrs

Love Thy Neighbor-ino Pt. 4
Cyrus starts

Lovejoy: Before we conclude today’s service, I need to thank a few of you for your exemplary community service. First, Ned Flanders opened his house to the homeless.
Todd: My new roommate smells like the dog park!
Lovejoy: Ned, you are the embodiment of the phrase “Do unto others…”
Ned: Just doing what any good Christian would do when provoked… *stares at Cyrus* …by a burning desire to help.
Lovejoy: And most impressively, Cyrus Manley, who built a whole block of houses for the homeless.
Cyrus Manley: Just doing what any man would do if he had an unrealistically large torso and extraordinary upper body strength.
Ned: Blast it all to heck!
Make Cyrus Manley Enjoy the Community’s Admiration- 4hrs
Make Ned Complain to Lovejoy- 4hrs

Love Thy Neighbor-ino Pt. 5
Cyrus starts

Ned: Reverend, I’m getting whiplash turning the other cheek. Cyrus is hogging all the good deeds!
Lovejoy: Let me get this straight. Instead of being happy for everything righteous that Cyrus has done, you’re jealous because he’s doing more good deeds than you?
Ned: Exactly!
Lovejoy: *sigh* Listen, Ned. We are all equal in the Lord’s eyes. You, me, Cyrus…
Ned: Even that lady that throws cats at people?
Lovejoy: Truly, some are more equal than others… But remember, when you and Cyrus are doing the Lord’s work, you are not in competition.
Cyrus Manley: Hey, Reverend, here are your car keys. I just finished waxing it like you asked.
Ned: Reverend Lovejoy?!
Lovejoy: Yes, well… I’m sorry Ned, when you and Cyrus are doing MY work, you are NO competition.

  1. When I click on the make marge with temperance task…it’s doesn’t register and I can’t make merge go on the task. Anyone else have issues with this?

  2. Why in the world would Cyrus send Lampwick to Shelbyville but they actually went to Springfield Church, even though we have Shelbyville buildings? I get it, possibly for the people who don’t have those buildings, but it would make more sense to send them to something similar to Shelbyville (even the lemon tree!).

  3. Cyrus Manly – whenever you get a Voiced New Character (even though it’s a variant of Ned Flanders roaming your Springfield – lol!) as an Event Prize (that you didn’t have to spend sprinkles on)? That is appreciated! 😉👍🏻

    I had fun with his Questline!

  4. Have EA run out of characters to use and all that’s left is to reinvent the characters we have, bit like a bad episode of doctor who were all the characters are played by the same person. Lame duck 🦆🦆🦆🤣🤣🤣

    • Keith,

      I’m right there with Patric (and You) in that I’d prefer a New Character from Safi’s List vs another variant roaming around Springfield …. but I have to say a Voiced Character as a Prize is better than a crap Prize (12 🍩’s, Decor I don’t want, Animated Character Task). 😆

  5. Any thoughts on Libido? I do try to support the game with cash purchases now and then, but was holding off until I saw your SIB and was confident that some of the earlier bugs with the purchase had been worked out.
