StrangeTown Monty 2.06(B): The Patriarch (Part 2)

What exactly is the Veronaville Device? How does it impact Antonio Monty & his kids?

How will the “Tale of Two Feuding Patriarchs” (ie. Patrizio Monty vs Consort Capp) sound from an outsider’s perspective – [Sepp Rossi], whose Monte Vista political family escaped the Veronaville Feud?

How will this info affect the choices made by his fellow Racing Man, Dr Walter Baptiste, patriarch of Hyde Dynamic Veronaville?

Notes:
– The [birth order of the Montys and Capps] differs from the canon
– New Intro Sequence – Music by TheTimMan
– Thanks to the Chronosym Twins for filming most of the Sims 3 scenes

[UPDATE – April 8 2015]
(1) Someone is fired from Hyde Dynamic…
(2) Two New Polls

Vidcund Curious decides to strike before it’s too late. The investigation continues at Olive Specter’s yard, as the Two Racing Men, Xu and Ivanov, deliver an outsider’s perspective on the situations in STM. Kent Capp gets a flood of memories from 1997, and wonders where Bianca Monty‘s place is in all of that.

If STM 1.10-1.11 are a parody of “possible accusations of Gary Stu”, then 2.05(B) is a parody of “bait and switch”. The audience sees the Racing Men on the screen, but it is the story of the main characters that is advancing at that time.
