The Easter Bunny is tired. He's been in the Easter egg business for many years, and all he wants to do now is hand over his business to his son and hare, Easter Bunny Jr. The trouble is, Easter Bunny Jr. is just about the laziest, rudest and most obnoxious rabbit you will ever have the misfortune to meet.
The Easter Bunny needs you to show his son just how much fun he can have while running their factory, the Egg Plant. You're going to need grit, determination and a whole vat of patience, but hopefully your can-do attitude will have a good influence on the soporific son and heir.
To start the event, you should head to the entrance of the Easter Bunny's warren. You can find the Easter Bunny standing just north of Rimmington, waiting to talk to any adventurer who is willing to help him.
You will soon find yourself transformed into an adorable wee bunny, ready to head down the rabbit hole. Once down the hole, head north and west through the warren to the fabulous Egg Plant.
You should first go and talk to the Easter Bunny's son, Easter Bunny Jr. You can find him in his room, in the north-west of the Egg Plant. He will recommend that you check his father's to-do list, to find out what needs to be done. The to-do list is on the noticeboard just outside Junior's room.
The Easter Bird is an enormous - comically large, in fact - parrot with an appetite to match. In order to get it working laying chocolate eggs*, you'll need to feed and water it.
* These eggs, obviously, will be put to use either as complete products, melted down to supply chocolate to be set into other, amusing shapes, or put into the incubator to become hideously delicious chocatrices. Eggsellent.
Implings are prone to forgetting what they're meant to be doing and enjoy exploring to look for things to steal, as you might expect if you've ever discovered the sorts of things that implings carry. To get the implings back to work, grab a few jars and the net from the Easter Bunny's office and head into the tunnels to the east of the factory floor.
To catch implings, make sure you're wielding the net and click on them - they're small and twitchy, though, a bit like Reldo after a visit from the Wise Old Man.
The incubator has been vandalised by an enraged chocatrice, and the impling who runs the machine couldn't stop it. The parts are scattered around the Egg Plant and hidden in crates and boxes by implings and squirrels*, a quick check of the boxes should secure you the parts you'll need. You'll also want to find the incubator blueprints so that you know where to put the parts: they're on the floor in Junior's room.
* Squirrels, in the absence of trees, are highly organised creatures that dislike clutter, so boxes are the logical place to put their ill-gotten gains.
When squirrels aren't stealing things that aren't nuts, they're rather good at forming unions. The Nut Sorting Union Of Squirrels And Other Creatures That Certainly Are Not Vermin Or Rodents (NSUOSAOCTCANVOR) is led by Big Ben, a squirrel with a cute little yellow hard hat. You'll have to negotiate a new pay deal for the union.
That won't be the end of your troubles, of course - that would be far too easy - you'll also have to retrain the squirrels. It's a simple process, though, so it shouldn't drive you too nutty.
Once you have convinced Easter Bunny Jr. of the value of working in the Egg Plant, you should head back to the surface to talk to his father. He'll certainly be quite relieved, and may even have a surprisingly healthy reward!
