Chapter 5: The Dark Lord Rises..

Here’s how I’m measuring generations: The first Generation is still alive, but now so is the second Generation.  I can’t wait for the first generation to pass away because that might be a while.  So basically it starts when the next generation is born.  Good?  Good.

Week 5 – Day 29:

Alexander has 14 days left until he ages up, the twins have 1 day left.  Alex earned his Comedian status!  No more terrible jokes about the colour Red!  Roxanne’s been losing sleep trying to keep the babies fed and singing them Southern lullabies.

Taco babies are hard work!

Taco babies are hard work!

Alexander got his first arch-nemesis, Chess-Ranked player Steve Yu!

Take that, Yu!  Take that, Yu!

Day 30:

It’s the twins birthday.  It seems like they were just born yesterday.  Party time!  (I throw a party for everything.)

Nice contrast!

Nice contrast!

Generation 2 Heir: Do you have a preference who should lead?  When I was naming them I thought Tristan would be the heir, but now I realize Virgil looks a lot more like his father.  They’ve both got red eyes, but Virgil has red hair.  Could the heir be blonde?

Pizza isn’t Vegetarian?

Wait, isn’t pizza Vegetarian?

Day 31:

After many days of hard, back-breaking maleficence, Alexander has earned his Lifetime Wish: He is the Emperor of Evil!  The world trembles at his unrepentant desire for death, mayhem, and bloodlust.

Muahahahaha!

Muahahahaha!

I’ve got too many Sims to control now.  Naomi’s the gardener, cook, painter, pseudo-grandmother, and occasional fisher.  Alexander, Roxanne, and Ezekiel are bringing home the bacon-cash.  Not to mention Alex and Roxanne get Challenge points.  I guess I could leave the twins alone with toys, see what happens.

Day 32:

The young ones are learning all the basics of life; walk on your leg-hands, make mouth-noises.  They’re also studying Logic, Creativity, and Handiness.

Pee in the plastic bowl, you fool!

Naomi is kindof like a babysitter, but cheaper.

Day 33:

The kids keep growing, learning, smirking.  Roxanne got promoted to Roadie.

Naomi’s bringing home the fish-bacon!

Beware the Squids!  They eat little boys!!

Beware the Squids! They eat little boys!!

Day 34:

For some reason Alexander’s relationship to Ezekiel has gone really badly.  I can’t figure it out.  Every single action makes them hate eachother more.  They haven’t cheated on eachother’s spouse or had any bad memories together, so I think it’s because Alex is the Sim version of evil incarnate.  Naomi also earned her Master Farmer status.

Ezekiel’s now an elder.

Day 35:

Ezekiel was promoted to Hit Movie Composer.

Ezekiel was promoted to Hit Movie Composer.

Ezekiel earned his lifetime wish, Hit Movie Composer.  That’s cool, great income!  He also got a free 85G Audio Explosion stereo.

Down with the Squids!

Down with the Squids!

Now Ezekiel is able to host Autograph sessions and earned $3,700.  With all this cash coming in, I invested in The Solitary Novel Bookstore.  Roxanne was promoted to Stagehand, she’s got a long way to go!

Community death count: 18 or 19.  (I lost count.)

Generation 1: Meet the Spouse!

Now that Roxanne Wolfe nee Tang is part of the Legacy family, I should probably give her a formal introduction:

Roxanne Tang

Roxanne Tang, the first Generation.

Born to Logan and Brooke, Roxanne has just become an Adult and is ready to contribute to the Wolfe legacy as Alexander’s spouse.  Roxanne grew up in the outskirts of Austin in the southern states of Sim-Nation.  Growing up in the arid desert, she doesn’t mind the heat of Lucky Palms.

Highschool sweethearts, Logan and Brooke got married shortly after graduation and never left their hometown.  Her father Logan was a grease-monkey in a mechanic’s garage while her mother Brooke found employment in the local bookstore.  Roxanne inherited her father’s ability to work with his hands, and her mother’s modest sensibilities, but her love of dangerous and exciting situations did not come from them.

After rescuing several classmates from a Science-room explosion, Roxanne found she possessed the unusual talent to survive fires.  Wishing to explore this further, she took up a career as Firefighter and was eventually transferred to Lucky Palms.  After meeting Alexander Wolfe during a routine kitchen-fire, they began to date and fell in love.  Shortly after their marriage, she gave birth to a pair of healthy twin boys.  She is currently pursuing her lifetime goal of becoming a Rock God.

Traits:

Brave trait Unflirty trait Handy trait Clumsy trait Lucky trait Immune to Fire trait Rocker trait

Brave: Situations that are scary, tense, or dangerous are of no concern to courageous Sims.

Unflirty: Cold feet, wet blanket, frigid, these are some of the attributes of meeker Sims.  They can still find love, but it’s harder to do so.

Handy: Give her a wrench and she can fix anything!  Nuts and bolts are no match for her tinkering.

Clumsy: Oh, Roxanne!  Dropping this, spilling that, you have such butter-fingers!

Lucky: But with the luck of the Texans she won’t muck things up too badly.

Immune to Fire: Fire cannot kill a dragon, neither can it harm Roxanne.  She’s basically a superhero. She earned this trait from the Fireman career.

Rocker: Hey hey, my, my; rock n’ roll can never die! Sims with this trait are more likely to rock!  She earned this trait from the Music – Rock career.

Lifetime Wish:

Rock Star lifetime wish

Rock Star: Roxanne wants to be a rock super star, to live large.  With a big house, five cars, and be in charge.  Her lifetime goal is to reach Level 10 in the Music – Rock career.

Personality:

Autumn Salad Classical Music The colour Aqua Leo zodiac sign

Favourites: Roxanne’s favourite dish is Autumn Salad, she loves Classical music, she enjoys the colour Aqua, and she is a Leo.  There will be a test later on these!


Chapter 4: The one with a Wedding

I’ve been very busy these last few weeks, finishing off my 2-year College program and have a million things due.  But I want to relax a bit so I’m taking tonight off.  Recently in Lucky Palms:

Week 4 – Day 22:

Alexander has 0 days until he ages up, so he threw a birthday party.

He is now a fully-grown adult. (Most of the time.)

He is now a fully-grown adult. (Most of the time.)

Day 23:

Alexander has 20 days left until he ages up again.  Ezekiel’s fiancé Yolanda is also an elder.  Ezekiel himself plays for tips in the library and the park, but never gets very many.

Day 24:

In the wee hours of night Alexander earned his promotion to Evil Sidekick.

I'm so clever!

I’m so clever!

I (me) just realized that my Legacy family doesn’t have any children yet!  I gotta get him (Alex) married to Roxanne Tang quickly before something tragic or terrible happens to him.  So the wedding happens as they do:

Trading wedding rings.  Kiss the bride, you fool!

Roxanne moved in and brought a whopping $0 with her.  I know the Founder isn’t allowed to marry a Rich sim, but could she at least have a little bit of money?  The wedding gifts and taxs brought in $2,800, so that’s cool.

Alex also cashed in his v-card ... if you know what I mean.

I purchased the first of many extravagances … extravaganzas… uh, expensive thingies, by investing in the Desert Diner.  It takes a while for invesestments to pay itself off, so I have to start buying things AQAP.

Day 25:

Alexander found a Mysterious Mr. Gnome at work.  These things are pretty cool.  I think Roxanne is pregnant because she threw up, but the option to “Try for Baby” is still available so I’m not quite sure.  Alex earned his level  10 in Athletic, I’m hoping this will increase his life a bit.

Ezekiel took Yolanda to see “Throbbing Hearts”.  It sounds extremely violent!

Installed some new mods here: One tweaks the lighting, the other increases chance of Burglary.  Because that never happens often enough.

Day 26:

Roxanne is definitely pregnant.

I stopped here to install World Adventures.

What is baby?

Baby's come out of tummy?

Bought the family a telescope.  I’m very concerned my lot is turning into a giant junkpile because I’m terrible at designing houses.  I’m going to fix it later when I save up enough money to make mistakes.

Naomi was at the cemetery with her friend Eli Vokaban when he passed away.

Day 27:

Alex promoted to Super Villain.  Just one more to go!

Naomi is still very upset about Eli and got her level 10 in Gardening.

Naomi found a random tourist hanging out in the desert.

Roxanne went into labour!  Wait, why was Death there? (I literally can’t remember..)

Why is Death there?  Why is Death there?

Roxanne gave birth to twins, Tristan Wolfe and Virgil Wolfe.  Each more identical than the last.  Which child will grow up to take on the mantle of Generation 2 Heir?  Who knows!?

Burrito babies.

Burrito babies.

(They had different Zodiac signs so I used the MasterController to change one.  I think there’s a mod to fix this.)

Day 28:

Apparently I made a mistake when I created the neighbourhood.  I set all the empty lots to Small Parks, so every NPC looking for a place to hang out would stand alone in an empty lot instead of congregating in one or two lots.

Roxanne grew into an Adult.  After a second investment, Alex now owns the Desert Diner 100%.

And that is that for the First Generation.  Next step, Generation #2!
