So, there is this one mission in Wenet's storyline where you find Wenet away, leaving all her eggs behind. The one and only option in this situation is to steal some eggs.
This is completely frustrating. Not only is it terribly out-of-character for some kings, but it forces you to endure an angry rant from Wenet that legitimately stresses one out.

I propose that there be added a second option to simply wait for Wenet to return and skip that entire frustrating sequence.

Feel free to discuss; this is my first suggestion topic and, I'll admit, I have no idea what I'm doing.



This suggestion has 187 supports and 25 NO supports.

I just got that today and I was confused. There was no quest? Or reward? Kind of a wasted day for quests. Unless maybe its luck of the draw if you successfully steal her eggs? Idk I don't get what that was about.

Nope no luck of the draw 'heart of the cards' BS here, just a big pile of disappointment and poor decision making. My king doesn't kill hyenas or even prey and he walks away from fights. My king is always choosing the most morally right options, so yeah when this came up, which I knew ahead of time as I look events up in the wiki to get a feel for them, I was taken aback. Like seriously, we have no option but to steal from a lioness we just met and are helping despite our king's reputation?

it stresses me out too, I absolutely hated it the first time that I found out that I HAD to steal the eggs

I legitimately felt bad for trying to steal her eggs. I was confused and regret that i should have looked for another option? I thought maybe you had to donate eggs maybe- so i did . Yes, a waste of a quest day.

I do not like straight-forward, no choice, Events that involve NPCs anyway as it feels like it's taking away player interaction, like why have the NPC if you can't gain or lose affinity with them until the very end When you try to 'woo' them? Especially when you have a karma mechanic in place.

Total support. This doesn't stress me or affect me in any way, but it was legit confusing the first time around when there's absolutely no other option. The first time, I figured, okay, first ever story line and quests and my king's evil anyway. Surely they'll add a good option next time! Especially since many people voiced complaints, confusions, and stresses.

No change this year though? Not even an addition just in case your king isn't evil?

I don't know if this is applicable for the situation, but maybe they could add an "Ask Wenet for some eggs" option. Like, tell Wenet you need them for this or that or whatever. I haven't gotten this far yet, but I'm not looking forward to it.

That'd be a fine thing to add, I think! When you try to take them, she gets really angry, so reasonably since her being mad seems to be necessary, she could just overreact to you asking. Like, "No! My eggs, you can't ever have my precious!"

Well she's nowhere to be seen during the encounter, but appears when you touch her eggs rather peeved and rightly so, you did try to steal from her. So the only option I see would be "Wait until Wenet gets back". Besides that apparently she had something planned for those but now we will never know. She says this at the end of the Crafting Bones Quest "I have gathered many Carved Easter Eggs. Come back tomorrow, I’ll show you what I have in mind for them."

Or, maybe she could catch you "admiring" her eggs. Like, your lion (with no bad intentions) goes up to the eggs and runs a soft paw across their grainy surface.

EDIT: And maybe Wenet could be mistaken, and think that you were trying to steal her eggs.

A thought just occurred to me... what if her plan was to sell them?

No Support.
It's a harmless quest with no real/in game consequences.
Whether it's out of character for your king or not, there are no negative side effects.
It doesn't need to be changed or altered.

Not only that, but it screws up your impression and resets your title.... That pisses me off. Support.

It does for a split second after she firsts scolds you, but then she says "TAKE YOUR EGG-SOAKED PRETTY FACE AND FUCK OFF!!" This puts everything back to normal, because apparently being called pretty fixes everything XD
