New Python Events: Progress Documentation [WORK IN PROGRESS]

So well, all the base configuration in "Yields" is now done and thus allows to create Python Events or Python Quests for a bit of flavour.
And since I feel that it is an integral part of this mod to have such flavour content and it is also a bit of fun to create stuff like that, I will now start working on it.

To be clear, I am not looking for new ideas of others, because I have so many ideas for Events and Quests already that I am not even sure if I can implement even half of them.
All this thread is supposed to do is to allow me to preview / show case / document the Python Events and Python Quests I will implement in the course of the next coupe of months.


All in all I easily have already 50+ new Events I really want to write.
(Actually we have so much new content that it would easily allow 100+ new Events)

I will most likely be busy implementing Events for the next couple of months.
(A few events every week just as I find time to do so.)

However I will not be working on this "full time", but from time to time I will create a few events.
(Just whenever I do not have time or motivation to create anything bigger.)


Thus please do not hijack this thread to discuss your own ideas Python Event and Quest unless you are actually implementing or already have implemented them yourself.
For everybody that is actually going to implement Python Events / Python Quests (in branch "Yields"), feel welcome to showcase your own work in this thread as well. :thumbsup:

Just as a small reminder of "Event and Quest ideas" I had. :)
(Trying to come up with Events / Quests using our new game content.)

So if anybody wants to take a look and feels inspired to use some of the ideas go ahead. :thumbsup:
(All I would really like to see is that e.g. a few of our new Units, Buildings, ... actually get events / quests.)

Spoiler :

Stuff like this here is acutally pretty simple to do.
(e.g. Just a small Quest to build 5 Graveyards.)
Honoring the Death (5 Graveyards)

It just needs somebody to have enough time and motivation to implement.
(There are dozens of similar examples around.
