The Greed-Quest of Well-Known Kadath Pt. 1
Polystar Executive: H.P.! Thanks for coming in, babe.
H P Lovecraft: I only came because I’ve heard the movie business is insane and full of lunatics.
Polystar Executive: I love it! Or should I say, I Lovecraft it!
H P Lovecraft: No, don’t say that.
Polystar Executive: H.P., you’re one of the great, twisted minds in entertainment. The movie business needs you!
H P Lovecraft: I detest moving pictures. Print is my preferred medium. Besides, my works are all in the public domain. There’s nothing stopping you from making “Call of Cthulhu 2: Redial”.
Polystar Executive: Wait, wait! Let me write that down. What was that again?Make Polystar Executive Pitch Lovecraft on Pitching- 4hrs

H P Lovecraft: You’re right. I AM a creative genius, and I need to share my gift with the world!
Polystar Executive: Remember, it takes an executive’s meddling for creativity to truly become genius.
H P Lovecraft: Get this: an amateur astronomer observes the night sky when he sees…strangely colored lights!
Polystar Executive: Uh-huh. And?
H P Lovecraft: And he goes insane!
Polystar Executive: That’s not a story! There’s no hero’s journey, no romance, no villain…
H P Lovecraft: Uh…the astronomer turns from the stars, travels to Polystar Pictures, makes love to the film executive’s fiancée, and then runs over the executive using the Polystar tram.
Polystar Executive: Now we’ve got a story!

Polystar Executive: I’m listening…
H P Lovecraft:And the shark—
Polystar Executive: Has a flame thrower! And the flame-throwing shark battles a giant ape who has a really hot girlfriend!
H P Lovecraft:Um, okay. I guess so?
Polystar Executive: Money!
H P Lovecraft: Ugh, what have I become?
The Greed-Quest of Well-Known Kadath Pt. 3
H P Lovecraft: I have to get away from that studio fool. Being around him has made me a shell of my creative self! “Shell”…hmm. Maybe a giant crab…fights crime…and has a hot girlfriend! Argh, that’s terrible! That exec has given me horror writer’s block!
Make Lovecraft Try to Get New Ideas- 4hrs
H P Lovecraft My walk around Springfield gave me a great new idea: a hapless dolt is irradiated in an accident, and turned into—
Polystar Executive: Put a pin in it, H.P. I’m watching this breaking news story.
Kent Brockman: We take you live to the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, where Homer Simpson has been irradiated into a glowing monstrosity.
Radioactive Homer: RAAAARH!
Polystar Executive: Wow, that’s crazy! Anyway, you were saying?

Is There an Exorcist in the House? Pt. 3
Helen Lovejoy: Father Ben! There are still demons roaming the streets of Springfield.
Father Ben: I’ve seen a mummy or two, but you know, as I search for evil, Springfield actually seems like a pretty nice place! Maybe we could focus on the good in this town instead of looking for evil around every corner?
Helen Lovejoy: That’s crazy talk! Now are you going to do something about these demons, or not?

Lisa: So it’s Mopey Mary…fine. I’m just glad you’re teaching Springfield what macabre really is, Mr. Poe.
Edgar Allan Poe: Mopey Mary, if you would be so kind as to terrorize the oafish denizens of this forlorn municipality…
Mopey Mary: I’m on it! Springfield, prepare to have your souls plunged into darkness, despair, and— Wait, is that a pumpkin bouncy house?
Bart: You betcha.

Helen Lovejoy: Father Ben, come quick! We need an exorcism on this monstrous child!
Mopey Mary: Jeez, lady. Take a chill pill.
Lewis Clark: Mopey Mary is our friend.
Father Ben: Well then which one is the possessed child?

Lisa: Mopey Mary ran off.
Father Ben: I suppose I should get after her then. A little exercise before exorcising never hurt anyone, right?
Lisa: Less hilarity, more holy water, Father.
The Conjurationing Pt. 3
Bart: Lisa, your dusty old dude is so lame!
Lisa: And what have YOU done to make Halloween scarier?
Bart: Allow me to summon the TRUE fossil of fear!
Edgar Allan Poe: Who are you summoning, young man?
Bart: Gimme some room and you’ll see…MAGIC! *waves hands magically*
Lisa: Was that supposed to do something? Because it didn’t.

Bart: A very smart and attractive person who loves donuts…trays of donuts…truckloads…I’m talking Montana-size!
Lisa: We really have no shame.
The Conjurationing Pt. 4
Bart: Thanks to the mighty Sky Finger, I now present you with…the TRUE Master of Horror…
Lisa: H.P. Lovecraft!
Edgar Allan Poe: Who in blazes is H.P. Lovecraft?
H P Lovecraft: A REAL author who read your quaint stories and realized that horror should actually scare people!
Edgar Allan Poe: And if I had lived to read anything you’d written, rest assured I would be mocking it as well!

Bart: At least with these two lamewads we’re not running for our lives.
The Conjurationing Pt. 5
Mopey Mary: Hey, check it out — there’s a zombie outbreak happening at the cemetery on the edge of town.
Lisa: Real zombies?
Mopey Mary: Totes. They’re eating people’s brains too! Or trying to. Not sure they’re finding much brain meat in Springfield.
Lisa: I have a brain, so I get that!
Edgar Allan Poe: Flesh-eating zombies?! This is terrible!
H P Lovecraft: My brain is too superior to be eaten!
Bart: Relax, guys. This happens every couple of years. Someone will stop them.
Edgar Allan Poe: And that someone is Edgar Allan Poe! I know just what to summon to thwart this zombie infestation!

Edgar Allan Poe: Where is my infernal raven! Pecking zombies to death would have been so righteous!
Lisa: The raven is already in the game…I mean in Springfield.
H P Lovecraft: And why isn’t my mighty Cthulhu answering my call?
Bart: He’s already here, too.
Mopey Mary: And he’s totally hogging the bouncy house, so if you could tell him to get his big butt out of there, that would be swell.
H P Lovecraft: Ugh. Having all your stories in the public domain is the worst.
Edgar Allan Poe: Agreed. It’s so hard to control anything from the grave.
Spooky Dark Plunger Bundle (Decoration (plunger will toggle all Halloween Facades on/off) + 4 NEW Halloween Facades)- 150
No real benefit to this combo. If you like the Halloween decor for your houses in Springfield pick it up. If not pass. The plunger does offer a 4% bonus on all cash and XP.
And there you have it my friends, the full wrap up of Act 2 of THOH XXXIII. Honestly, the way things are going, you’ll likely see this again for Act 3. (although I’ll try to have a rundown post up as well…)
Thoughts on Act 2? Ready for Act 3 to start Sunday? Sound off below…
I miss the trick or treaters. That task should be turned on for every kid once the Halloween event starts.
I’ve just realized that during this last act, I picked up characters #599 and #600. That’s a lot of people wandering around Springfield.
I recently signed back on and realized I was missing over 500 donuts. I’ve sent tickets to EA and they have been non committal with no help. Has this ever happened to anyone else?
By the way, since they haven’t gotten around to it, in terms of whether Frankenscratchy is worth it. The quest line is fairly short. They do have a complete set of character tasks, which is good, but I would say pass, because the character, just like Lenny, makes an ungodly guttural shriek every single time they finish a task so for the rest of the time you are you using that character in your Springfield, you are going to have a nasal shriek every single time that character finishes a task. For me, that’s the kind of thing that if I had known how annoying the task completion noise was for this character I probably would not have bought them. That’s my two cents. The actual dialogue is exactly what you expect from an itchy and scratchy character. I hope that helps. I’m sorry I don’t know which ones are visual. I honestly can’t remember.
Since tsto addicts has an “in” with EA, do you know if anything will happen to the decor of Spine Chills when the event is over—like the Carnaby St Christmas decor vanishes after the holidays?Will it disappear? Thinking that Christmas decor will appear on the two houses
Unfortunately I’m not very “in” with them. I’m more like your name sake Anthony Edwards character in Top Gun Maverick, I’m dead to them.
Didn’t mention anything about it in the splitter packet prior to the event.
Most lame even ever
The Springfield Forever Cemetery looks like you should be able to put a road or something in the open area, but I have not been able to get anything to work with it. Tried placing it over existing road or cobblestones, and also tried adding the road after placing the cemetery. has anybody found a way to work with that open area?
I placed the concrete in the middle and then put on border shrubs
I’ve completed Father Ben’s questline but his 12-hour-job is still locked. If I put Demon Technician in storage, it suddenly becomes available, but as soon as a get him out, the job is locked again. So, I can start the job but having to always store a character/building prior to that is somewhat impractical. Anyone else having this glitch?
I am having the same issue.
Same issue here, too.
Figured it out by playing around a bit, and it’s the opposite of what some folks thought… I had to STORE the Demon Technician to get Father Ben’s 12-hour task to become available. I think maybe it’s because there’s (another?) blue Demon Technician in that task’s animation, and maybe they didn’t want both showing in the town at the same time? However, you can store the Demon, start Fr. Ben’s task, then put the Demon back in town. But, if you store Ben to release him from his task and put him back into the town, the task is locked again. Maybe they’ll fix this mess in the new update?
Has anyone else been missing Fogbury pier and lighthouse for 80 donuts? It’s available in my b game but not my account game. I didn’t buy it as it’s not in inventory either. I’ve contacted ea days ago, but haven’t gotten a reply.
It’s almost over.
