Episode 624: The Pledge Algorithm


It's important to celebrate big achievements in a character's life. Weddings, major birthdays, graduations. Becoming the major villain in the story.

Organise a cake. Both in-game and in real life. If you're lucky the real cake might even be as nice as the in-game one.
