The poor people of Burthorpe are not only being attacked from without - from the trolls of Death Plateau - but they are being attacked from within, as they slowly starve from a lack of food. Yet, there are vegetables in the fields and stock on the shelves, so why aren't the poverty-struck getting their fair share? Investigate and make sure that bellies are filled in a quest that will sicken you to your stomach.

Development History

Let Them Eat Pie was announced in the Behind the Scenes for January 2011. The preview quote from the article was:

"[...] a new quest [...] where a particularly unpleasant war profiteer gets his just to speak."

The quest release was part of a wider revamp to the areas of Burthorpe and Taverley which also included Troll Warzone and 47 new Tasks designed as a new tutorial.
