Does "feature-lock" preclude adding more common events? Anyway, if you're still open to new events, here's one inspired by a recent bit on a well-known comedy show. All You Can Eat A man attending an all-you-can-eat feast in [city name] has been arrested for sharing a plate of food with his wife, who had not paid to attend the feast. a) Sharing is caring. Order the man released at once! (+1 in [city name], +10 to the crime rate) b) He must learn the lesson taught by a great man: "Don't share the plate if you can't stand the fate -- the fate of justice!" (+1 in [city name], -10 to the crime rate) And something similar, inspired by an old episode of one of my favorite TV shows. All You Can Eat #2 A man attending an all-you-can-eat feast in [city name] was kicked out by the host after eating all the food available and insisting on more. The two are now in a legal dispute. a) 'Tis no man, 'tis a remorseless eating machine. The host was right to kick him out: order the man's lawsuit dismissed. (+1 and +1 in [city name]) b) That doesn't sound like a man who's had ALL he could eat. The host should be held liable for false advertising. (+1 and +1 in [city name]) c) Order the host to allow the man all he can eat at any time, and allow him to charge spectators a fee to watch. (food stores in [city name] decrease by a random percentage (25-50%, maybe?) and treasury gains random amount of gold (25-50?)) A couple more inspired by the same show: The Telltale Head A schoolboy in [city name] has been arrested for cutting the head off the statue of the town's founder. After he spent about 23 minutes and 5 seconds explaining himself to an angry mob, the townsfolk seem ready to forgive him. a) We cannot tolerate crime, especially when directed at our public monuments. Have the boy prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. (+1 in [city name], -10 to the crime rate) b) It wasn't until after he removed the head that the townspeople realized that they were taking their heritage for granted, and that's a crime, too. Order the boy released. (+1 in [city name], +10 to the crime rate) The Iconoclast A schoolgirl in [city name] says that her research has uncovered new evidence that the town's founder was nothing more than a murderous pirate. Publication of this research could upset the townspeople. a) Our founding myths are too important. Persuade the girl to keep the truth secret. (+1 in [city name], -X (should be a small amount) towards [tech being currently researched]) b) Her cromulent research will embiggen our scientific progress. Let her speak freely. (+1 in [city name] +X (should be a small amount) towards [tech being currently researched]) c) [Lanun only] A pirate? Publish the research and announce a celebration! (+1 in [city name], +X towards [tech being currently researched]) And finally, one that's NOT from a TV show. The Commissioner of Lights (Requires a city with a lighthouse) The Commissioner of Lights of [city name] has an idea for upgrading the city's lighthouse, but needs funding for it. a) The lighthouse is fine as it is. Besides, we can't afford it. b) Fund the upgrade. Let's hope we get some benefit out of it. (Subtract X from treasury, Lighthouse in [city name] yields +1 (20% chance) , +1 (20% chance), +1 trade route (20% chance), +10% trade route yield (20% chance) or no effect (20% chance).) As I said, I don't if "feature-lock" means no more new events, but I enjoyed coming up with these, even if you end up not using them. If you do accept any or all, feel free to modify as you (and/or others) see fit.
