Vote for the Generationalist!

It’s that time again; readers get to choose who you think should be the next Torch-Wielder!  Which of the 3 Wolfe Teens will continue on the Legacy Challenge into the Generations expansion?  Just as a reminder, we have:

Hyperion Wolfe  Deo Wolfe  Belladonna Wolfe

Europa Wolfe ———— Gawain Wolfe ———— Roche Wolfe

 

But who are they really?

Europa Wolfe: Brown hair, light Gray eyes.  Her traits are Evil, Loner, Perfectionist, Nurturing, and Light Sleeper.

Gawain Wolfe: Brown hair, light Green eyes.  His traits are Evil, Clumsy, Technophobe, and Mooch.

Roche Obsidian Wolfe: Red hair, Red eyes.  His traits are Evil, Hates the Outdoors, Rebellious, and Ambitious.

 

And they’ll probably wind up with a random Base Game career and Lifetime Wish.

Chapter 41: Do Babies Eat Sand?

Hey all.  I’m heading to Cuba next month for a little R&R.  Last time I left Canada was 2004, last time on a plane was like 25 years ago, so I’m a bit nervous.  Also I’ll need to post early to keep up the once-a-month routine.Cayo Coco Coco beach in Cuba.

Week 31 – Day 211:

It was a burning hot  Sunday.  Hyperion & Deo are 83, Iris is 79, Europa has 1 days left till she’s a Young Adult, and Gawain & Roche has 4 days until they’re Teens.

Something’s not quite right with Hyperion..

Something’s not quite right with Hyperion..

Hyperion’s still working on his celebrity status.  I have an entire list of celebrities throughout the town and how much befriendship he needs.

Roche has made it his personal goal to booby-trap every toilet, sink, and computer at the local library.

Claude Dent-Wolfe and Raquel Vasquez-Steel are getting married.  At least they’re not related!

Deo performing for Belladonna’s party.

Somebody spread a rumour that Deo was arrested, and he lost 31 friends!  Seriously now, this isn’t even funny anymore..

Belladonna went low-resolution for a little bit. Belladonna went low-resolution for a little bit.

Editor’s note: I discovered a funny trick with the settings; if the POV is far enough away the Sim uses a lower-resolution model. But then hitting Tab and zooming in lets you take a decent picture of such.

Belladonna’s an Elder.  Europa has to pee.

Day 212:

Iris started writing her script for “The Sweet Cow of Moscow!”  Also was promoted to Distinguished Director (10), meaning her LTW is finished!  Oh and she got a fancy Director’s chair and a nod for the Simmys.

Roche’s been a bad boy! He broke into the Ross home when nobody was around to set traps everywhere.

Europa’s birthday. Europa’s a Young Adult now.  What’s up with the Japanese dress?

Europa rolled the Light Sleeper trait.  Since she seems to have an aptitude for working with kids, Europa joined the Day Care career as an Amateur Babysitter (1).  There is no LTW for mastering the Daycare career, so her LTW is to become a Master of the Arts.

Editor’s note: I usually find raising the babies in TS3 kindof boring.  1 or 2 at a time is okay, but I feel that multiple children is a daunting task.  If all else fails, Europa might become a painter full-time.

Elliot Hawks wants Disease Prize to play at Waylon’s Haunt again.  Sure, that always works out well. *eyeroll*

Jean Luc Beaumont, the infamous Jean-Luc Picard impersonator, died.

Day 213:

What What!  Europa’s the first member of the Wolfe family to graduate highschool.

What What!  Europa’s the first member of the Wolfe family to graduate highschool.

Europa was her Class Valedictorian and voted “Most Likely to Take Over the World”.  Ahem.  Well, it’s her first day running and operating the new Children Our Are Future Sunshine SmileyFace Rainbow Daycare.  Let’s see, she’s got a kid named Tiana and Zane.  “Sit!  Stay!  Watch TV!”  It went well and she was scored Great twice.

Editor’s note: You have direct control over your Daycare Sim, like the Ambitions’ careers.  You need to ensure the kids are happy, befriended, clean diapered, and sometimes tutored.

Roche called the teacher a “scruffy-looking Llama herder” and got detention.  What a bad boy!

Gawain playing with Piewar.

Iris started writing “Toe-Tappingly Tragic“. Hyperion got promoted to Supporting Actor (8). Also Shane and Irma named their (sortof-incest) baby Mike.

“I got this one for writing an essay on cross-contamination on writing utensils.” “Dork.”

Gawain: “I got this one for writing an essay on cross-contamination on writing utensils.” Boy: “Dork.”

Gawain decided to throw a slumber party. So many children running around! It becomes a round of musical-beds when they realize there’s nowhere for most of them to sleep.

Day 214:

Oh boy.  Dara Dent-Wolfe and Adan Diwan-Gilbert are committed now.  First Prometheus, then Jamel and Donte, now Adan.  Adan’s not even a real name!! Cummon now!

Another rumour about Deo rummaging through people’s dustbins.  He lost 28 friends, that’s too much now!

Sir Gawain and Roche having breakfast.

Roche and Gawain got on a field trip to the Imagine That! Theater and got a fancy mirror souvenir.

Europa’s given another kid named Deshaun.  “So… what exactly do toddlers like to play with … some Garlic, 5000-year old Nectar, a ghost-box named Tabitha, a Plasma Pack, and an External Harddrive.”

Somehow Deo and Hyperion made it to Waylon’s and performed admirably.

“Did you know you’re less likely to choke on a Taco chip then on a Marshmellow?” “Oh honey, I don’t really care.”

Gawain: “Did you know you’re 31% less likely to choke on a Taco chip than on a Marshmellow?” Belladonna: “Oh honey, I don’t really care.”

Iris penned scripts for “See You in a Thousand Years“, which she dedicated to her long-lost twin brother, and “Whoop, Whoop, Whoop!“, which she dedicated to no one.

Day 215:

The butler Jamel has mysteriously vanished, but is replaced by Butler #2 Liam Contreras.  He’s also got a monocle.

Europa’s got Zane and Deshaun for the day.  “Are kids supposed to eat that much sand?”  Well, that’s a problem for the parents!  She got promoted to Cool Caregiver (2).

Oh no, I can’t believe… “some lady” passed away!

Oh no, I can’t believe… “some lady” passed away!

Boss and personal assistant to most of the adults Rhonda Diwan-Irwin died.

Roche is a Teen. Gawain is also a Teen.  Work that scarf!
Roche and Gawain are Teens. Work that scarf!

Yep, now the twins are Teenagers.  Roche rolled Ambitious (yaa), and Gawain rolled Mooch (meh).

Day 216:

Roche’s still rebelling, with his nose-piercing and his faux-hawk.

Roche’s still rebelling, with his nose-piercing and his faux-hawk.

I signed Gawain up for Shop class and Sports Club, and Roche for Music Club.  Also Roche started snubbing his twin for some reason.

Iris wrote the screenplay for “The Man Who Folded Himself“.

Editor: This is an actual story.  It’s good, I really liked it!

Hyperion’s been trying to track down his girlfriend Kiki Ash to ask her to move in.  She keeps mysteriously disappearing from the town.

Gawain’s been messing around with the Science Lab station and discovers the Stink Juice potion.  After some charity work at the hospital Belladonna’s up to Renowned VIP (4).

Day 217:

It’s all the luxury of a limo, with the greasy food of a vending truck.

It’s all the luxury of a limo, with the greasy food of a vending truck.

Iris started writing “Manticore Horn Handle”, which is apparently a 2-hour commercial for a fantasy knife.

You’re probably wondering what Belladonna’s been up to?  I realized that there’s a Mood Drink which makes Sims learn skills faster, so she’s been spending a lot of time mixing those. And to prevent random visitors from drinking them (and wasting them), I’m hiding them in the sub-basement.  She’s also become master of Mood Drinks.

Editor’s note: For some reason Kiki’s retired, which means she works random hours at the bar or disappeared from the game entirely.  So I changed her career to Angler so she’s always available to hang out.

Hyperion won a free vacation for all the adults, but until he’s finished his LTW I can’t afford to waste a single hour.  Speaking of which, maybe a Celebrity marriage can spruce up his reputation?

Hyperion proposes marriage. Kiki says yes.
Hyperion: “We may not have a long time, but we’ll have a good time.”

Next week: A bit of death, a bit of life, and a new beginning.

Community death count: 316 or so

Legacy Score: 85. (Gen: 5 + LTW: 13 + Portraits: 14 + House: 20 + LTR: 33)

Chapter 40: Night of the Prom

Hi all!  I probably don’t say this enough, but:

Sound off in the comments, let me know what you think. What do you enjoy about the story, what you don’t, too many words?, not enough pictures?, etc. Like, subscribe, share, etc.

Also I uploaded the Generation 4 banner up as well.  Enjoy!

Week 30 – Day 204:

It was an saunishly hot Sunday.  Hyperion & Deo are 76, Iris has 1 day before she’s an Elder, and Europa has 8 days left till she’s a Young Adult.

Gawain and Roche chatting together.

Iris started writing a new script, “Homicidal Robots Shouldn’t be on TV”.

Hyperion was asked to cameo in “Llamas Vs. Gnomes”.  Everyone’s had a walk-on role in it!

You remember Lee Kim-Yao?  He was like the Special Merchant in China or something.  He passed away.  If he was already an adult on Day 98, I think he might’ve been an Immortal.

Day 205:

Europa asking Rogelio to the Prom.

Europa asking Rogelio to the Prom.

It was the day of the Big Dance and Europa still didn’t have a date, so she summoned up her courage and asked her friend Rogelio Diwan-Irwin.  What luck, he said yes!

Editor’s note: I wish I had asked someone, but I went stag. 😦

The young couple.

The young couple.

At the Prom, Europa and Rogelio were slow-dancing and he asked her if she wanted to go steady.  How magical!  She also begged all of her classmates to vote her as Prom Queen, so she won that!  How desperate! They were voted cutest couple, and impressed everyone with their chicken dance.

Europa and Rogelio get their funky disco shoes on.

Meanwhile, a dark and mysterious figure (wearing a glittering ski mask, turtle-neck sweater combo) violently attacks several of Europa’s friends throughout the night, including some guys named “Slick” and Lou.  The hoodlum is later defeated by Europa in an amazing dance sequence.

Killer ninja Spider-man.

Oh, also it was Iris’ birthday. She’s an Elder now.

Day 206:

Deo playing with his kids.

Deo playing with his kids.

Holy cow!  Somebody spread a rumour that Deo was arrested, and he lost 15 relationships.  Fifteen! Somebody should really do something to stop the Lucky Palms paparazzi infestation.  The STLPPI movement is born.  #STLPPI

Iris wins the prestigious Green Orb Award, and gets promoted to Assistant Director (9).  Meanwhile Hyperion gets promoted up to Production Manager (5).

Europa finally gets to go on an exciting field trip to the Graveyard, and gets a cool poster souvenir.  The school wants her to get an after-school job: Nah.

She’d rather do this:

Europa and Rogelio share their first kiss.

Europa and Rogelio share their first kiss.

Unfortunately for their blooming romance, Rogelio has aged up to Young Adult and I don’t have any mods to deal with that!

Day 207:

Gawain playing with his doll Piewar while Roche learns his C chord.

When Europa was a Toddler, I didn’t have much luck bringing her doll Glowsponge to life.  I’m trying harder with Gawain and Piewar, hopefully this time I’ll get somewhere with it.

Europa seems to get along well with kids.

Hyperion’s promoted up to TV Actor (6).  Also Iris needs to stay late at work to shoot extra scenes for the production.  She starts writing “The Beast with a Thousand Fronts”.

Editor’s note: I’m officially worried that Hyperion will not be able to reach level 5 Celebrity to finish his LTW.  There’s 5 or 6 other LTWs I am considering switching to, such as Golden Tongue, Private Aquarium, or Swimming in Cash.

Day 208:

Since she’s almost there anyways, I changed Iris’ LTW from whatever it was before to Distinguished Director.

Hyperion’s asked to deliver 10 of his own paintings to the Business Office, in exchange for money.  Also Belladonna is considered an Amateur Ichthyologist.

The whole extended family. (So Shane?, Irma, Claude, Lewis?, Deo, Rene?, and Jonathan?)

Europa is invited to an Art-A-Thon, where she wins a free painting.  Did I mention she joined the Drama Club?  I think she got the “Best Participation Award” or something.

Gawain's birthday party. Gawain is now a Child.

Roche's birthday party. Roche is now a Child.

Double birthday time! Gawain rolled the Technophobe trait, and I gave Roche the Rebellious trait.

Day 209:

Hyperion asked for a raise, won the Sims’ Choice Award, and got promoted to Featured Actor (7).  Also Iris began writing her musical, “We’re Whalers on the Moon”, and the B-Movie “The Humans are Attacking!”

Well, it looks like Piewar and Figment are dud dolls.  Neither of them did anything remotely magical or whimsical, let alone came to life.  I feel let down, like Gepetto after building his first 100 lifeless Pinocchios.

Roche has started sabotaging plumbing on public lots for the lulz.

Gawain’s asked to clean out the bug cage at school.  Here’s a stupid question: Why do schools have bug cages?

Deo choking on his hands.

Somebody called Sheryl Wolf died.  Wolf, with no “E”. How was she related again?

Day 210:

Belladonna caught… A Piece of Seaweed!

Belladonna caught… A Piece of Seaweed!

Have I mentioned I’ve been trying to collect all the fish from the Base Game and expansions?  Belladonna’s managed to get 2 or 3 of the Late Night fish.

Hehe, as part of his Rebellious nature Roche is allowed to “Complain about the Status Quo”.

Deo and Irma hanging out at the club on the weekend.

Deo and Irma hanging out at the club on the weekend.

Oh dear; Irma Dent-Wolfe & Shane Morel-Wolfe are having a baby. They are first cousins once removed. Which is illegal in 6 American states, but not in The United States of Simarica, apparently.

Oh geez; you know Lee Kim-Yao, quest-giver, China?  Anyways he died again.  I think it’s a cry for attention, personally.

Belladonna gets a funny 500 celebs.  The quest was to work out for 4 hours but it auto-completed while she was sleeping.

Next week: The original prankster.

 

Community death count: 301 or so.

Legacy Score: 81. (Gen: 5 + LTW: 12 + Portraits: 14 + House: 20 + LTR: 30) (No change)
