Queen Gautama does come with a full questline, here’s a look at that questline:
Soup for the Soul Pt. 1
Lovejoy: Queen Gautama, we can see that you have extraordinary wealth. Would you consider sharing it with the less fortunate by donating to our annual Soul Koozie Charity Drive?
Queen Gautama: Soul Koozie Charity Drive?
Lovejoy: Yes. It’s just like a regular koozie, except it has an uplifting message on it about the evils of alcohol. So, either you drink something non-alcoholic, or you feel bad about drinking. Both are fine with us.
Queen Gautama: If it will keep my husband from indulging in spirits, take this necklace. It should trade for a few hundred servants. I’m sorry, I know it’s not much.
Lovejoy: Thank you, Queen Gautama! The righteous word of God will do as it was always meant to do: keep ginger ale from getting warm.
Queen Gautama: If one silly necklace can bring that much joy, I think I’ve found my new passion.
Make Queen Gautama Donate Her Necklace- 4hrs
Make Lovejoy Grovel at Queen Gautama’s Feet- 4hrs
King Gautama: My Queen, why are you fleeing the palace with all your jewelry?
Queen Gautama: I’m giving it away to the poor people of Springfield.
King Gautama: *gasp* You can’t just give away our riches! If I see that electric car guy higher than me on the World’s Richest Men list again, I might have to start selling books. And you know how much I hate books!
Soup for the Soul Pt. 2
Queen Gautama: Oh, you poor thing. Laying in a dirty alley in a pool of your own sick.
Barney: That’s not my sick. *belches*
Queen Gautama: Can I offer you this diamond-encrusted chalice to improve your lot in life?
Barney: Hey, thanks lady! This should improve my lot a lot! What does this hold, like four pints?
Lisa: Your Highness, I think there are better ways to serve the people of Springfield than handing out random jewels.
Queen Gautama: A dark alley such as this is no place for a little girl, especially one who looks so much like my own daughter. What are you doing here?
Lisa: Looking for my dad, but that’s beside the point. I think you could help the less fortunate by giving out food instead of jewels.
Queen Gautama: We do have the finest chefs in the world at the palace. Perhaps their food could bring joy to the destitute.
Homer: *sitting up behind a dumpster* Lisa, is it dinner time?
Lisa: No, Dad. Go back to sleep.
Make Queen Gautama Operate a Popup Soup Kitchen- 4hrs
Make Lisa Try the Food- 4hrs
Lisa: Queen Gautama, this soup kitchen is wonderful! I’m sure this will be a much bigger benefit to the marginalized community.
Homer: Mmm. Margarine community.
Lisa: No Dad, marginalized.
Homer: Such fake buttery goodness.
Soup for the Soul Pt. 3
Homer: Excuse me, fair maiden. Can I get a refill please? Need something to wash down these chunky soup bits.
Queen Gautama: Why, of course. And I see your bread plate is empty, I’ll bring you another.
Lisa: Dad, this isn’t a restaurant! It’s a place for the unhoused to get a meal when they have no other options.
Homer: Well, your mother kicked me out, so here I am. But this place has everything I need…hot soup, endless breadsticks, and a waitress who’s as gorgeous as your mom. It’s just one-upped Olive Garden.
Queen Gautama: Oh, you flatter me, sir. If I weren’t already married to the king.
Homer: Pfft, I bet he’s fat and ugly. I, on the other hand…
Lisa: We’re leaving!
Make Queen Gautama Flirt With Homer- 4hrs
Make Lisa Drag Homer Away- 4hrs
Soup for the Soul Pt. 4
Prince Gautama: Mom, why do I have to be here? This is taking time away from following around this kid who looks exactly like me and pretending to be his ghost.
Queen Gautama: I need your help. My new restaurant is really picking up, but I don’t know how to handle the social medias with all their ticky tockers and instant telegrams.
Prince Gautama: First off, you need to improve the ambiance in this place. Nobody is gonna want to “instant telegram” pictures of their food with all these lowlifes around.
Queen Gautama: This is a soup kitchen. They’re homeless.
Prince Gautama: Yeah, no kidding.
Chester Lampwick: I’ma be needin’ some more breadsticks, garçon!
Queen Gautama: Of course. Though, garçon means a male waiter.
Chester Lampwick: My apologies. More breadsticks, uh…garçorina.
Make Queen Gautama Refresh the Breadsticks- 4hrs
Make Chester Lampwick Hide Breadsticks in His Coat- 4hrs
Make Prince Gautama Send Some “Instant Telegrams”- 4hrs
Prince Gautama: Alright, Mom, your social media presence is under control. In fact, you’re trending.
Queen Gautama: Wonderful. How long, exactly, do the instant telegrams take?
Prince Gautama: Mostly they’re instant.
Lisa: Not to be a Debbie Downer, but the unhoused tend not to have internet access.
Prince Gautama: Debbie, let the professional handle things. This place’ll be hoppin’ before you can hashtag your doubts.
Soup for the Soul Pt. 5
Lisa: There are so many people here!
Queen Gautama: I know. My chefs can barely keep up with the demand.
Lisa: Wait a minute. These people aren’t all low on their luck. That’s Scotty Boom right there. He’s a celebrity chef!
Queen Gautama: Well, whatever they are, they’re delightful. Everyone keeps thanking me profusely and giving me large wads of this green paper.
Lisa: That’s money! This is supposed to be a free soup kitchen!
Queen Gautama: Oh, about that…the soup wasn’t really moving so I took it off the menu and replaced it with a nice hand-rolled gnocchi.
Lisa: *gasp* You removed the soup from the soup kitchen?!
Scotty Boom: You’ve done it again, Queen Gautama. I’m so into the royalty meets hobo chic vibe of your popup restaurant. It’s really classy how you don’t put any prices on the menu.
Lisa: That’s because it’s FREE! And it’s meant for the hungry and unhoused!
Scotty Boom: Haha! That’s great. The little girl really adds to the ambiance.
Lisa: EVERYBODY OUT!
Queen Gautama: I don’t see what the problem is.
Lisa: It’s the principle of the thing.
Queen Gautama: What principle makes it wrong to give something for free to those who don’t need it when those who do need it are also taken care of?
Queen Gautama: Well?
Lisa: Give me some time to think!
Make Lisa Reconsider Her Principles- 4hrs
Make Queen Gautama Smile Knowingly- 4hrs
Lisa: I still don’t like it, but I think it’s just because I’ve been brainwashed by capitalism. Those that can pay should pay. Everyone else is reliant on their largesse.
Queen Gautama: Well, you wash your brain with capitalism. I’ll do this my way…
