Hello all! I’m feeling a bit more chipper than I was last week. I went to this amazing concert last week with 2 bands I really like (Xandria and Sonata Arctica). Unfortunately, I got sick on the way home even though I only drank water and Diet Coke. Strobe lights, they can make a person get sick right?
Week 18 – Day 120:
Virgil’s 91 and Serefina has 5 days left.
After consummating their marriage, Serefina and Brady have a little one on the way. As per usual, this means it’s time to install a new expansion: this time, Late Night!
This expansion comes with A LOT of community buildings. I had trouble choosing, but I ended up adding 7 Dance Clubs, 4 Apartment Complexes, and the Acting career rabbithole. I also tore down the Gymnasium because it doesn’t work, and the Lucky Palms Casino because I forgot it existed.
Fancy new feature: I rented out the dance club Waylon’s Haunt for Brady’s birthday. It says it’s a Dive Bar but it’s actually pretty nice.
Unfortunately, Virgil passed away. Oh, the second heir has passed on! Oooh, simulated-life goes on though. Ghost-Keri also disappeared, I guess she was just waiting for Virgil.
Prometheus went back in time and killed a mastodon, which accidentally created the Morse family in modern-day Lucky Palms. I’m okay with that, but somehow it also made Dara Dent cheat on Prometheus. Very uncool! Also Niobe got promoted up to Rare Medium (8).
Case #4: The Cyberspace Double-Cross: Crime on the net. What is this world coming to..? I had to deal with it today. The client, Piere Something-or-Other, knew Cletus Who-Cares was promoted suspiciously. Stolen laptop documents. Ol’ Cletus is a novice at hacking, dare I say a hack? His password was “sloppy”, his firewall just a Bic lighter. Pierre was seething after I told him, but what can you do?
Glitch time: Brady kidnapped somebody’s toddler! For realz!! Apparently if you teleport when you’re holding them they end up on your lot. Whoops! (If you’re wondering why Brady suddenly has a moustache, I was trying to give him a Private Investigator disguise.)
Joe’s given the very best mission of all time: the Omni Plant mission!!! Unfortunately I don’t enough quality Steak yet, but as soon as I do..
In other news, Jena (from last post) are Jeremy are engaged. I’m hoping this means she’s staying away from Zachery for good nows.
Case #5: The Dirty Cleaner: Using the wrong toothbrush. What is this world coming to..? Poor little Jeri, wide-eyed little child, convinced someone has been backwashing her kit. I don’t have many leads, so I bark up the first tree I spot. A small bribe to loosen the gums. But it was all a sham! Nobody’s borrowing her bitty brush, and I’m the one left with egg all over my face.
Brady was promoted up to Small Claims Investigator (2) and got a magnifying glass. I still can’t figure out how to use it though.
Sadly but truly, our resident doctor Joe died at the age of 95. This means no Omni Plants, I lost the lot’s Gardener, and no more bastard childrens. Also Jena, Terry (Virgil’s boss), and Edith (Pascal’s mother) all died.
Meanwhile, Prometheus was exploring a cave when he got chased by fishmen guards.
Yep, Serefina gave birth. And as is the Wolfe fashion, she had twins! The babies are called Hyperion (Evil and Athletic) and Deo (Evil and Insane).
Prometheus’ lifetime wish is to create 3 monsters, but I haven’t had any luck getting the Simbot-building opportunity yet. In EAxis’ unquestionable wisdom, summoning a Mummy counts as creating a monster*, so Prometheus uses Virgil’s collection of broken canopic jars to do that.
*For whatever reason, they don’t count resurrecting a Ghost, siring a Vampire, or creating any of the other occult types. Why? Just because!
Her name is Kajaptah Larimoropolese, and Prometheus thinks she’s hot despite being an ancient decrepit corpse wrapped in bandages. He also got promoted up to Experienced Innovator (5).
Niobe’s asked to sneak 5 spirits into the Criminal Headquarters to scare them or something.
Serefina had to deal with an Earthquake at work. It was quite scary, at first I thought a meteor had killed somebody. Basically there were three different lots with fire emergencies, and she got to rescue 3 Sims.
In sadish news, Pascal’s father died, just 1 day after his wife.
Okay, so Mummy Sims are SLOW. So very slow!! Kajaptah wants to get into the Cooking career but I read that mummies catch on fire easily so I put her in the Gardening career. After selling 1 day’s worth of moneytree she is promoted to level 7 immediately. She’s okay for standing-still projects too like Mining or Time-Travel.
Case #6: The Literary Thief: Stealing from the library. What is this world coming to..? Christian Tony-Stark believes Pascal is behind it. Dirty deeds done dirt cheap, I dive into his trash and warily peruse his incoming mail. The receipt for “Library Hacking Software” is a dead giveaway. And that my friends, is why you should always burn your garbage.
Tristan beat up a bouncer at a dance club, as you do. I think it’s weird that Virgil died and Tristan is still alive, because Virgil was more Athletic and also a Martial Arts master, while Tristan eats junkfood and spent most of his life journalisming.
Also Prometheus was nearly caught by the Keeper of Time at a cyberbar neopoetry slam.
Well, Serefina was promoted to Fire Chief and has reached the top of the career. This means she gets her own personal Firetruck and Firealarm so that she can work from home. Sadly, she’s nowhere near complete her LTW, but we’ll work on it.
Have I mentioned I’m sending Prometheus to the Consignment Store every day? They have so much useful garbage there (Gems, Metals, Gnomes, Books), and he’s been slowly selling Virgil’s Deathfish collection, Cascadia’s failed bottles of nectar, and his own vomit-inducing hygienators. All this means a lot of money, but he also earned an Impressive reputation for his sales. Also the Military wants Prometheus to give them some hygienators for some anti-virus thing they’re doing.
Niobe’s gotten promoted up to Outstanding Occultist (9), which is just 1 step below her LTW. Lucky her!
Whoops, Ginny Shaw threw a party and I forgot. Oh well, Niobe, Tristan, Prometheus crashed it. Also there’s a ghost haunting, so I got that to deal with too.
Kajaptah nearly got eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex in her time-travelling exploits. Also, Edith Morel passed away. Again, somehow. The notifications don’t lie!
Yep, Serefina got awarded the Key to the City. It’s very pretty. Also that lady Sim named Allyson DiPaolo is possibly the mayor of Lucky Palms? err, maybe she’s The Keymaker?
Tristan got his very first invitation to a party. It read something like this: “Dear Tristan, this is your best friend Silas Sparks-Diwan. I’m sure you know who I am, since we are BFFs and everything. Please attend my awesome swimming party on Sunday the 126th at 4:00pm. Please RSVP AQAP TYVM.” Unfortunately, Tristan was 96 and he passed away. It was time.
Prometheus handed in the hygineators, also got to see some restricted military weapons. Also Kajaptah found an underground Stonehenge.
So it’s been 7 days with Late Night installed, and there’s still no celebrities. From my research, there’s no way for my Sims to become famous without meeting someone famous, so hopefully soon!
Community death count: 141 or so
Legacy Score: 45. (Gen: 4 + LTW: 6 + Portraits: 10 + House: 8 + LTR: 17)
