The Broad Way Pt. 1
Siddmartha: I thought coming to Springfield would fill this hole in my heart. But it’s still there.
King Gautama: Honey, that’s hereditary. You inherited that from Daddy because of all the sacred steak I eat.
Siddmartha: That’s…not how genes work, and besides I’m a vegetarian!
King Gautama: Ugh, and you won’t stop talking about it either.
Prince Gautama: Sidd, the last time you had an existential crisis you broke into song and dance.
Siddmartha: You want me to sing my problems away again?
Prince Gautama: Not in the slightest, but if it gets you to stop whining then I’ll put up with one Broadway number.
Siddmartha: *breaks into song* WHAT’S THIS FEELING I FEEL? IT STABS ME THROUGH THE HEART. WHAT’S THIS EMPTINESS THAT’S TEARING ME APART?!

Siddmartha: ENLIGHTENMENT IS NOT SO EASY, QUESTING FOR IT MAKES YOU QUEASY… *slowing down* THEN I SHOULD FIND A PLACE THAT’S ONLY FOR ME…I THINK I’LL SPEND SOME TIME AT THE BODHI TREE…
Advisor Frink: OR…YOU COULD CRAWL INTO A HOLE TO BE YOUR TEMPORARY HAVEN.

Up next? The rest of the Act 1 prize track…which we’ll break down in the next prize post.
Thoughts on act 1? Siddmartha? Questline? Tasks? How are you doing with the prize track? Still, working on it? Sound off below!
Yeah I finished the short part 5 expecting more and there were no more quests even though it reads the event ends Juky14th!
Each Act triggers on different dates. So the rest of the story will continue on June 18th, and then you’ll be stuck again until June 27th, and again until July 6th.
Having her quest start after completing the event is a good play for EA to keep players on in the downtime.
It would also be great for Gil to pop up with his “deals” outside of events, especially in the cases where the character has little to no impact on event tasks!
I thought it was odd a quest line didn’t start when I finished part 5. I will wait patiently for the end of the event.
Siddmartha – I’m not going to disagree with those saying “it’s just another Lisa Simpson clone” (well, Siddmartha is Lisa – like in the Episode, right?), I’m just going to say that I 💜 her 1 Hour Visual Character Task and I’d be happy having Siddmartha “play with her kitty” all day! 😊👍🏻
