Generation 2: The Second Spouse!

Keri Wolfe nee Rocha has officially joined the Legacy family, so introductions are in order:

Keri Rocha, the second Generation.

Keri Rocha, the second Generation.

Born to Pedro and Madaleni, Keri is halfway through her Adult stage but is still able to contribute to the Wolfe legacy as Virgil’s spouse.  Keri grew up in a small Portuguese fishing village called Nazaré on the eastern edge of the Sim-lantic ocean.  She is used to the warm beaches and cool, airy nights of her homeland.

Pedro and Madaleni married young but didn’t have their first child until their late 30s.  While Pedro was still alive, he was a fisherman and somewhat of a local celebrity, well-known for selling his aquatic produce in the market with his four helpful sons.  When Madaleni was younger, she worked in one of the hotels as a cleaning lady and occasional waitress, but has been retired for many years now.

Keri is the fourth-born child and the only girl, which made it difficult growing up with four brothers.  She inherited her cleanliness and tidiness from her mother.  Keri didn’t have a lot of money or possessions growing up, so she learned how to make the best of any situation, and picked up the habit of “taking things home” after cleaning an employer’s home.  Like Alexander, Keri moved to Simnation in order to see a new world and gain new experiences.

After being hired by Roxanne to clean the legacy house, she met and fell in love with Virgil Wolfe.  Unbeknownst to all, she became pregnant shortly before the family vacation to France.  (Apparently it’s not against the rules to travel while pregnant.)  Her current lifetime goal is Heartbreaker. Her new lifetime goal is to own Private Museum.

Traits:

Flirty trait Brave trait Neat trait Heavy Sleeper trait Kleptomaniac trait Makes No Messes trait can Apprehend Burglar

Flirty: Ooh, some Sims just cannot help themselves!  The suggestive eyebrow, the pressed lips, the best back massages.  Be warned, Sims of this persuasion are more likely to cheat on their wife or husband!

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

Neat: Some Sims genuinely enjoy making the bed, washing the dishes, and using bleach to clean the toilet.  Keeping the home tidy and clean is essential for their well-being.  She earned this trait from the Maid career.

Heavy Sleeper: Dead to the world means being able to sleep through anything.  Earthquakes, air-raid warnings, Simzilla, it doesn’t matter because they won’t hear it!

Kleptomaniac: Sticky fingers, five-fingered discount, or maybe it just fell off the back of a truck.  Possession is nine-tenths of the law, and klepto-Sims often wind up “borrowing” other people’s property.

Makes No Messes: No need for tidy-up-time with Sims who are naturally avoid creating both filth and clutter.

Can Apprehend Burglar: Freeze punk!  You picked the wrong house to rob!  She earned this trait from the Law Enforcement career.

New Lifetime Wish:

Private Museum Lifetime Wish

Private Museum: Keri decided to change her lifetime wish to owning a Private Museum.  As wife and sister-in-law to the World Adventurer’s generation, Keri will have plenty of opportunities to go on vacation and collect at least §20,000 worth of relics.

Old Lifetime Wish:

Heartbreaker Lifetime Wish

Heartbreaker: Keri wants to be a Heartbreaker.  Heartbreaker, you’ve got the best of me; but I just keep on comin’ back, incessantly.  Her lifetime goal is to date 10 different men and/or women at the same time.

(Out of everything the Sims want to do, this has got to be one of the craziest IMHO.  Who would genuinely enjoy keeping so many relationships hidden, sneaking around town, risk being caught at every turn, and possibly being branded a cheater?  Does the risk warrant the gain?)

Personality:

Shawarma Kids Music The colour Orange Capircorn Zodiac sign

Favourites: Keri’s favourite dish is Shawarma, she prefers Kid’s sing-a-longs, she loves the colour Orange, and she’s a Capricorn.  I have no idea how to make Shawarma.

Chapter 13: The One With a French Maid

Hey everybody.  Happy Long Weekend, to those who are celebrating!  I think they call this The May 2-4, but if my calendar is right the 24th is actually next weekend.  Anyways, on with the show!

Week 10 – Day 64:

Virgil has 15 days left until he ages up.  And I totally forgot to throw a funeral for Alexander!  Fortunately while most of the Wolfes (Wolfs? Wolves?) got over their grief on vacation, Joe was at home with the moping moodlet and he was able to host one.

Everybody laughs at Joe.

Everybody laughs at Joe.

What else: Oh, they bought stock in the Sacred Spleen Memorial Hospital.  It’s quite expensive at §30,000 for an initial investment!

Tristan’s job performance gets a boost whenever he interviews somebody and then writes a terrible story about them.  For this reason he writes negative stories on Joe’s ex-brother-in-law Clinton Matlapin-Dreamer and Oscar Arrelano.

Day 65:

Roxanne is getting concerned that her middle-son will never find a girlfriend, so she hires a French maid.  That’s something rich Rock Stars do, right?  Her name is Keri Rocha and they do seem to hit it off.

"Keri is a pretty name! How much does your hat cost?"

“Keri is a pretty name! How much does your hat cost?”

"How do you feel about tidying up the house?"

“How do you feel about tidying up the house?”

 

Tristan gets promoted to a Professional Blogger, and he gets to watch “Balloonists I Have Loved” for free.

Joe was at work when he helped one of the Hospital’s benefactors win a chess game.  (Are you supposed to capitalize hospital if it’s not a proper noun?)  Anyways he gets promoted to Infectious Disease Researcher and starts investigating the highly contagious condition known as the Strangetown Syndrome.  Apparently it has something to do with the discolouration of the skin, an unusually small nose, and eyes turning “blacker than an empty void”.

Ah! A monster!

Ah! A monster!

Day 66:

After helping the gang to extricate something from the Area-52 Labs, Virgil is promoted to Getaway Driver.  He also gets his first kiss with Keri.

"Your lips taste like grape soda!"

“Your lips taste like grape soda!”

Tristan wrote a best-seller called “Flying Demon Monkeys Attack School Play!” and started another called “Neighbours are Stealing Your Water!”.

Joe’s mother Kinslee Hudson died, but he didn’t seem to care.  Which is weird, because he hated Alex and he mourned for 2 – 5 days (depending on your perspective in the timeline).

Day 67:

In a rush, Virgil asked Keri Rocha to be his girlfriend.  And then his wife!

She said yes!  I mean, who would turn this guy down?

She said yes! I mean, who would turn this guy down?

I forgot there was an Eating Contest at the Desert Diner, but I managed to get Roxanne, Joe, Virgil, and Cascadia over to participate in time.  Both Roxanne and Joe each won §1000.  (See, I feel like Eating Contest should be capitilized but IDK.)

Tristan misquoted a Sim he interviewed and chose not to apologize, so now Christian Tanner-Steel is pissed at him.  But who cares what that guy thinks!

Roxanne (finally!) got promoted to Rock Star and completed her lifetime wish.  Chalk one more point up for me!  She also earned §5000 from an autograph session after the Eating Contest.

Being recognized as a celebrity is cool.

Being recognized as a celebrity is cool.

Day 68:

Roxanne just didn’t want the party to stop, so she stayed up all night playing guitar for her rabid fans in the parking lot of the restaurant.

"Tips are always appreciated, folks!"

“Tips are always appreciated, folks!”

Wedding bells ring as Virgil marries Keri Rocha, who becomes Keri Wolfe.  I’ll give her a cool backstory in the next post.

Tristan loves weddings, apparently.

Tristan loves weddings, apparently.

"With this ring, to have and to hold, until death tears us apart."

“With this ring, to have and to hold, until death tears us apart.”

Unfortunately she had §0 to her name but they earned §1,625 in gifts.  I kindof want to own a Police Cruiser, so she joined the Law Enforcement career.  I’m sure being married to a wanted hooligan felon supervillain larcenist won’t cause strife between them.

Tristan started his next article “The Scary Truth Behind PlumbBobs!”  Somebody has to warn them!

Day 69:

Such a tranquil fishing spot.

Such a tranquil fishing spot.

Virgil earned his Amateur Ichthyologist award for fishing.  I don’t like fishing myself, but I really like sending my Sims fishing!  Terry the boss gets a hair-brained scheme but Virgil talks him out of it, which makes him angry at Virgil.

For his many days of great reporting, Tristan earned the Simitzer Prize and was promoted to Investigative Reporter.

Joe’s girlfriend mistress booty-call Addison Ross is pregnant, but I have no way of knowing who the father is.  Dr. Joe is able to tell by rubbing her belly that she’s having a girl, as you do.  Roxanne witnesses the affair and is quite upset with them.  Also Joe got promoted to Neurosurgeon.

"I don't like how her hair changes when she puts on a hat."

“I don’t like how her hair changes when she puts on a hat.”

Day 70:

Addison wakes up Cascadia, (who hasn’t been mentioned in this chapter yet) and now dislikes Addison.

"You dance like a yellow person!"

“You dance like a yellow person!”

And apparently she has it out for her mother as well.

And apparently she has it out for her mother as well.

Virgil got his promotion to Bagman.  Tristan has his first kiss with Tanner, and then he loses his v-card.

"Kiss me, Police-Cop!"

“Kiss me, Police-Cop!”

Oh great, now Virgil is upset about this affair.  Honestly, why do you care?

“EXPENSIVE ARTWORK ATTACK!!”

“EXPENSIVE ARTWORK ATTACK!!”

Another special event, the Amateur Olympics at the Lucky Llamas Stadium (where the clock is always flashing 12:00).  Roxanne and Keri each win §1000, but the other 4 only get a certificate of participation.

Hey, it’s Saturday, time for another vacation!  Oh wait, no, I gotta give Keri a backstory, then vacation.

Legacy Score: 12. (Gen: 2 + LTW: 2 + Portraits: 2 + House: 2 + LTR: 4)

Community death count: 40 or so

Chapter 12: From the Mojave to the Sahara

New location!  I like China, but it’s so nice to see another country.  After the founder’s recent passing away, the Wolfe family decide to take a trip to Al Simhara, Egypt.  Let’s see what Virgil, Tristan, Cascadia, and Roxanne get up to:

Day 1:

Virgil gets hired by MorcuCorp to search for some lost papers in a tomb.  Cascadia needs to find something called a “Moonbelly Sphinx”.  Whatever that is.

uh… Is that you, moonbelly?

uh… Is that you, moonbelly?

As the unofficial tomb-explorer, Tristan completes the Tomb of Discovery where he finds both of the lost relics.  That was convenient!  Then he goes to Sanaa Madbouli’s house and steals all of the hot dogs and cheese from her fridge.  Because that’s how he rolls.

Yet again, Roxanne gets the boring quests which involve running all over the map looking for things that tend to disappear by the time she gets there.

Day 2:

After finished the Ancient Library tomb, Tristan is contacted by the Al Simhara Cartographers’ Union.  His next quest is to visit the Great Pyramid, the Sphinx, the Ruins of Karnak, the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, and the Pyramid of Wind.  Why hire a foreigner like Tristan to do this when there are so many locals who know their own landmarks..?  Meh, fine.  But he did get Level 1 Visa!

Cascadia needs to disarm the traps in somebody’s basement.  Ooh, it’s called the Ancient Trap Nexus.  That could be fun!

“I can totally feel bugs, I just hope they’re dead.”

“I can totally feel bugs, I just hope they’re dead.”

Yea, just wander into the basement full of traps, that’s probably safe.  And where are your shoes!?

Yea, just wander into the basement full of traps, that’s probably safe. And where are your shoes!?

Virgil’s asked to interrogate grill demand politely ask the locals how they feel about MorcuCorp.  The general consensus is they hate it.  It sounds like MorcuCorp is a cross between the Umbrella Corporation and Sirius Cybernetics.  Also there are rumours that MorcuCorp is in league with the Illsiminati.

For the Board of Tourism, Roxanne needs to photograph a treasure chest. That is all.

Day 3:

My Sims always get so much done on the last day, because they stop goofing around and get down to business.

"Can I give you a makeover?"

“Can I give you a makeover?”

To help build a post-Atomic propulsion drive, Virgil needs to collect Flame Fruit from the Tomb of the Burning Sands.  I know what you’re thinking, “Mister Wolfe, didn’t you bring 40 Flame Fruits with you on vacation?”  Yeah, but Virgil’s gotta go all the way to the tomb and walk in the front door before the game knows that and gives him the level 1 Visa.

Then it turns out that Virgil is working for some rebels who hate MorcuCorp, and he needs to get the Relic of the Sun before they do.  What a twist!

Cascadia spent most of the day sleeping.  Teenagers, amirite?

“And he was all like ‘Whoa, man..’”

“And he was all like ‘Whoa, man..’”

Tristan disarms the rest of the traps in Shadia Rashid’s house for his LTW.  I find it odd that Abdul Kamel paid for the mission because it’s not even his house!  What nefarious scheme is he hatching?

Roxanne gets more of the same: befriend this chap, photograph that thingy, find those things. She also gets her Rubble Excavator achievement for excavating rubble.  Huzzah!
