Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Are you ready to reach true enlightenment? Feel an inner peace you may have been missing in your life? Inner peace might be nice after the Robots tried to destroy Springfield… Get ready as Siddmartha comes to Springfield to bring us all a little calmness in the latest event to hit our pocket-sized towns…Springfield Enlightened! As 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 July 14th. However, Act 4 will start on July 6th (note the Tuesday start date).
Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Prince Gautama, Siddmartha, Apu, Quimby, and Lovejoy…
Prince Gautama: Why did I get a free ride to a school I didn’t even know existed?
Apu: Reverend Lovejoy, Mayor Quimby, and I have banded together to wreck your sister’s plans here in Springfield. We were hoping you would join us. …now that I say it like that, does it sound to anyone else like we’re the bad guys?
Quimby: Relax. Once the Squishee money starts rolling in again, you won’t care how many children you’ve destroyed. Take it from one who knows.
Apu: Oh, I might have made a mistake.
Prince Gautama: You had me at “bad guys”. What’s the plan?
Quimby: Siddmartha is encouraging the people of Springfield to educate themselves, and we can’t have that.
Lovejoy: Yes, so if you can just absolutely ruin Kathmandu U.
Prince Gautama: I’ll do my best.
Apu: Actually, if you could do your worst. Oh, I sound like a bad guy again.
Siddmartha: So…we meet again, brother.
Prince Gautama: Indeed. I look forward to destroying everything you’ve built in this town.
Siddmartha: You’ll find it’s far more difficult than kicking over building blocks like the last time you pitted your will against mine. Even with those blocks being solid gold and really, really heavy.
Prince Gautama: Then I’ll just have to use something a little larger than my foot.
Siddmartha: Good luck. Once on the path of enlightenment, most never stray.
Prince Gautama: I don’t need luck. I’ve got the elephant of surprise.
Siddmartha: I believe you meant “element”. Plus, there’s no surprise since I’m standing right here. Although that hasn’t worked so far.
This triggers the Act 3 questline, Oh Brother, Why Art Thou?, and is followed by a 4hr task for Siddmartha and Apu, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (100). Oh Brother, Why Art Thou? 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 3…
