The prepper Lloyd and his compound has hit town, as well as the U.S. Capitol Building! Join us right after the jump for their walkthrough!

15 Minutes of Shame Pt. 1

Lloyd starts

Lloyd: Darn, yet another apocalypse didn’t come to pass. Us preppers just can’t catch a break.
Lloyd: I had so many plans for the post-apocalyptic hellscape: shaving my hair into a mohawk, wearing all leather, instituting a Beanie Baby-based currency…
Lloyd: I should stop talking to myself before people start thinking the guy-who’s-rooting-for-society-to-collapse is crazy!
Lloyd: I’ll just write my thoughts in my journal. Now, which Beanie Baby notebook should I use…

Task: Make Lloyd Journal Apocalyptic Thoughts
Time: 4h
Location: Preppers’ Compound

Lloyd: Wow, I feel like I emptied my head of everything that was in there. Better go to Moe’s to fill it back up with cheap booze.

Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

15 Minutes of Shame Pt. 2

Lloyd starts

Lloyd: Look at all these pages! Writing’s sorta like prepping for the apocalypse, but instead of gathering canned beans and ammo, you just gather your thoughts…most of which are about ammo.
Carl: Have you ever thought about getting a publisher and making this into a book?
Lloyd: Of course I have! Half the reason I got into prepping was to make my way into the literati!
Lenny: Oh, so you don’t need our advice?
Lloyd: Only thing I need is to decide which publishing house I’m gonna go with: Simon & Shooter, Random Bunker, Doubledoomsday, HarperShut-ins…

Task: Make Lloyd Choose a Publisher
Time: 4h
Location: Preppers’ Compound

Lloyd: Boy, these prepper publishers sure know how to moonshine and dine a fella!

Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

15 Minutes of Shame Pt. 3

Lloyd starts

Moe: Well, which publisher did ya go with? Lemme guess: you decided to self-publish.
Lloyd: No way! I’ll risk being self-sufficient when society falls, but I need professionals to get this book into as many stores as possible.
Lloyd: I went with Oxford University Press. Those cutthroat psychos will get this book on more shelves than a prepper’s jars during pickling season.
Lenny: So, what’s next? You work with an editor to get your book in perfect shape?
Lloyd: Nah, they got people to do that for me. I have to work on something far more important: my photo for the book cover!

Task: Make Lloyd Have a Photo Shoot for the Book
Time: 6h
Location: Preppers’ Compound
Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

15 Minutes of Shame Pt. 4

Lloyd starts

Lloyd: I really wanted my true self to show, so I went with this photo of me looking pensive riding a motorcycle while smoking a pipe and writing with a quill pen.
Homer: Ah, the understated look. Wearing two monocles was a nice touch, too.
Lindsey Naegle: There he is, the author of “Thus Prepped Zarathustra”!
Chalerms: Lloyd! Lloyd! Sign my book!
Benjamin: This book is brilliant! Where do you get your ideas?!
Lloyd: Same place I get everything else: from inside my windowless bunker!

Task: Make Lloyd Meet With Fans
Time: 4h
Location: Preppers’ Compound
Task: Make Springfielders Get Books Autographed [x5]
Time: 4h
Location: Preppers’ Compound
Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

15 Minutes of Shame Pt. 5

Lloyd starts

Lloyd: *sigh*
Homer: What’s the matter, Lloyd? Weren’t PREPARED for the downside of fame?
Lloyd: “Downside”?! Fame’s great! Money, adulation, all the canned beans I could eat!
Lloyd: But I made the classic prepper mistake: I confused my own thoughts with the plotline of Kevin Costner’s post-apocalyptic masterpiece “The Postman”.
Lloyd: My book has been recalled for copyright infringement and I’m being sued by Warner Bros. Their lawyers are more vicious than any band of blood-thirsty, nomadic marauders.
Lloyd: They even took my monocles. Suddenly, the end of the world doesn’t seem so bad. Guess I’ll get back to preparing for it…

Task: Make Lloyd Prepare for the End
Time: 8h
Location: Preppers’ Compound
Quest reward: $200 and 20 XP

It’ll Take an Act of Congress

Auto starts

Lisa: The U.S. Capitol Building?! How is this in Springfield?
George Washington: Is it any less weird than me being here?
Lisa: I guess not. But — no offense — you’re dead. The real Capitol is still being used.
Quimby: I needed to practice inside it before I move onto the big leagues, so I had Professor Frink create an exact replica.
Professor Frink: Pff, “replica”?! This is a real-time transporter! Just hit the button, and you’re in a real Congressional session, with the yea-ing, and the nay-ing, and the filibustering…
Professor Frink: …where the congress-people go on and on and won’t stop it with the talking…
Professor Frink: …and the unnecessary addition of all the extra words…
Professor Frink: …to make their lengthy monologues last even longer in order to obstruct the progress of the legislative assembly–
Lisa: Frink, you annoying genius; you’ve given me an idea!

Task: Make Lisa Transport to the Real Capitol

Location: U.S. Capitol Building
If the user has Professor Frink: Task: Make Frink Filibuster an Anti-Environment Bill
