Apres Moi, Le Deluge
Conditions[edit | edit source]
This event is only triggered if the following conditions are met:
- Bernadett is alive
- Borbalo is alive
- Piri is dead
- Rebeka is dead
- Janika is dead
- The quest "Loose Threads" is not completed
- The quest "A Bowl of Water" is not completed
- The quest "A Haircomb" is not completed
Once these conditions are met, the flood will automatically be triggered.
Core Event[edit | edit source]
Once the player wakes up to start a new day and leaves the inn, the Water Spirit will emerge from the river and summon a storm. The river will overflow, and the seamstress shop, the workshop, and the hospital will become unreachable. Any villagers in those buildings will also become unreachable - the player cannot converse with them, receive quests from them, turn in quests to them, or complete any steps of quests which require talking to them. Those villagers cannot be killed at night unless they are the only villagers still alive.
The Water Spirit will direct the player to choose one living villager to sacrifice. Until the player does this, the flood will persist. The player can talk to the Water Spirit to choose which villager will be killed immediately, the the flood will recede.
If the player delays in selecting a villager for at least three days, then once the storm has stopped the town event "Flu Season" will begin immediately.
Variations[edit | edit source]
If the player has the Spool of Waves, the player can turn it into the Water Spirit to stop the flood without choosing a villager to die. The player can only get the Spool of Waves in one of two ways.
- If the quest "Loose Threads" was active prior to the start of the flood, the player can get the item from the Water Spirit's cave before the event has started. However, the player cannot get it this way once "Apres Moi, Le Deluge" has started. If the Spool of Waves is given to Piri or Cecilia the player will avoid the event altogether. Therefore, the player can only have the Spool of Waves this way if they've completed all the steps of "Loose Threads" except for turning it in.
- If the player has returned Vid to her grave as part of the "Silent Spirits" quest, the player can visit Vid's grave once "Apres Moi, Le Deluge" has started. Vid will give the player the Spool of Waves and instruct the player to give to the Water Spirit.
Results[edit | edit source]
After the storm is over, all quests related to the Water Spirit will become unavailable to the player.
