If you look up, you’ll notice the banner has been updated to include Generation 1 and 2. Wait, is it showing up? Hit refresh. Still nothing? Hit Shift + F5 maybe, it should be different now.
Anywho, I choose Virgil for the Torch-Wielder, which means it’s his job to continue the Wolfe Legacy. So:
Week 9 – Day 57:
Alexander is 86, the twins have 1 day left before they age up. Did you know that Tiberium is poisonous if you leave it in a Sim’s inventory?
Virgil bought stock in The Blooming Cactus Bistro. Tristan started his next literary success, “The Scary Resident” hypen based on a true roommate.
I didn’t really talk about Joe too much when he moved in. He has been branded as a cheater by the neighbourhood, so I assume he got caught cheating on his ex-wife (Stephanie) with his current romance (Addison Ross). Ironically, this rep makes it impossible for him to be romantic with Addison. Oh, and he’s Good which means it’s IMPOSSIBLE for him to be friends with Alex, Tristan, Virgil, and Cascadia. He’s a pariah everywhere!
Speaking of Joe, I totally forgot to throw him a birthday party. But he taught a course on Tough Negotiating and was promoted to Trauma Surgeon.
It’s the twins birthday. Virgil ages up and gets the Bookworm trait, and I decide he’s going into the Thief career. Tristan also ages up to Young Adult and gets the Schmoozer trait, and I decide he’s going into the Journalism career.
Virgil needed to stay late to help his cronies count out copper coins, but it means he’s promoted to Cutpurse.
Tristan gets around to making his move on Tanner, but what’s this? He’s already partner with somebody named Terry. Who is this Terry, a man or woman? Does Tristan dare to slip the surly bonds of marriage and dip deep into the sweet temptation that dare not speak its name?
Virgil was asked to go to city hall and help get a stuck fish out of the pipes. Eww, I hope he didn’t bring it home with him.
Tristan was promoted to Automated Spell-Checker and his next book is called “Sweaty Hands”.
Roxanne was promoted to Pop Icon. They had a 50% off sale at the Bookstore so I bought every Skill book and Bait book for almost §7,000. Hey, who knows when it’ll be on sale again?
*sigh* … The day started out so well. First Alex’s arch Nemesis Darleen died.
Alex was lucky and got to become friends with the Grim Reaper. Did you know he’s a Bookworm?
To save time on transit, Alex cashed in (some) of his Lifetime Reward Points and bought a new-fangled Teleporter.
Then it was Cascadia’s birthday to teenager. She got the Easily Impressed trait and the No Bills Ever reward. It was all going so well, until..
.. Alex died! And he was only 90. Too soon, EAxis, too soon!
Joe has two separate cases at the hospital: first he had to convince a psychotic that he was King of the Llamas, which got him promoted to Gene Therapist. Then he saved another client who was about to die from Subpaleolithitis, which I assume has to do with dinosaurs?
It turns out that Virgil’s boss is the infamous Terry Diwan-Gilbert! And Terry is a woman! So, Tanner and Terry actually have 2 children together, but he’s still flirting with Tristan. Also Virgil is attracted to Terry. (If I really wanted to mess things up then Virgil would marry Terry and Tristan would move in with Tanner to raise the kids.)
Speaking of Tristan, he was promoted to Freelance Writer. Now he gets to interview Sims and write stories about them, so he wrote a positive story on Tanner. I can’t even imagine..
Virgil had an all-nighter friend-a-thon with Terry before he convinced her to give him a promotion to Thug.
Tristan bought stock in the Silver Swallow Day Spa. This is the 4th or 5th property now.
Joe starts attending a Medical Conference while the Wolfe family pack up and go on vacation. Where is the latest destination? Tune in next time to find out after I figure it out!
Legacy Score: 10. (Gen: 2 + LTW: 1 + Portraits: 2 + House: 2 + LTR: 3)
Community death count: 36 or so
Theme song of the week: “Our Farewell” by BrunuhVille
As a Vegetarian and Cross-Country runner, I feel that Alexander should have lived a lot longer. In my last legacy challenge I had a roommate with these qualifications and he lived to be 130 or 140. He was the Emperor of Evil too. (I believe it was VJ Alvi, but I’m not sure..)
Oh well, what can you do?
