Chapter 33: Death From Above

I hope everyone had a good Valentine’s Day. Now let’s get into it!

Editor’s note: As mentioned last chapter, the Dance Club inferno doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon, so I tore it down.  I’m not sure if any NPCs got killed or erased, hopefully not. At least nobody important!

Week 23 – Day 155:

Serefina & Niobe are 77, Hyperion & Deo have 1 day left until they’re YAs, and Belladonna has 10 days left until she’s YA.

Prometheus builds Iodine Glenda Wolfe.

Prometheus builds Iodine “Glenda” Wolfe.

This is pretty exciting; after summoning Kajaptah Larimoropolese, buying Tungsten, and building Iodine, Prometheus has completed his LTW Monster Maker! Also Brady’s lifetime wish is taking too long; so it’s changed to Super Popular now, which is an instant complete!

Case #20: A Tampered Election

Case 20: A Tampered Election.  Fake ballots.  What is this world coming to..?  Our illustrious mayor Isidro Claremont-Gilbert feels his recent landslide defeat goes against the popular vote. Turns out the dead have been voting for his opponent.  I slide back into the shadows, letting politics, democracy, and the media ensure justice is done.

*Isidro was also featured in Case 10.

**It’s basically that Simpsons’ episode “Sideshow Bob Roberts“.

Dara: Are you talking about sandwiches? Prometheus proposing marriage to Dara Dent.
Prometheus proposing marriage to his sweetie Dara Dent.

Day 156:

Case #21: Blackmail Most Foul

Case 21: Blackmail Most Foul. Extortion. What is this world coming to..? Gwendolyn Vasquez-Steel needs me to dig up the dirt on her ex-husband’s nephew Coy. I give his trash the ol’ one-two but find nothing dirty.  Gwenny looks like she might be unhinged so I back away & pray to User she’s not armed.

Iodine: What a remarkable and miraculous thing it is to be online!

“What a remarkable and miraculous thing it is to be online!”

I really like robot Sims, especially how they can fly about and make lots of weird noises when they walk.  But it’s weird because the family tree says Iodine is Prometheus’ daughter, but she can also flirt with him.  That’s EAxis for you!

Belladonna chose her LTW: Master of Mixology.

Belladonna chose her LTW: Master of Mixology.

Rene and Lewis (Cascadia’s children) are YA now. Belladonna is kindof in love with Angel, but he’s dating some girl called Diane.  Bummer. Also have I mentioned I kindof dislike Belladonna? This will be the only time she’s mentioned this chapter. 😈

 Day 157:

Case #22: Gnome Abuse

Case 22: Gnome Abuse.  Lawn decoration assault.  What is this world coming to..?  Tucker Duck-Gnat called me in tears, as someone has been knocking his gnome about.  It takes some dirty surveillance tactics to find the wrecked addidas of Leticia Vole-Carp.  The dame’s in need of anger therapy, that’s a certainty, but my work here is done.
*Leticia was also featured in Case 8.

Hyperion as a Young Adult. Deo as a Young Adult.
Hyperion and Deo age up to Young Adults.

Hyperion gets the Eco-Friendly trait and his LTW is Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous. Deo rolls Ambitious and his LTW is to be a Superstar Actor.

After some work in the lab, Iodine gets a human face.

After some work in the lab, Iodine gets a human face.

Tungsten and Shaun Shaw are dating.  Who knew he was a homosexual robot?  Zachery Ross an Elder too now.  Also Mayor Isidro died!  I guess you never really know when death will strike.

Day 158:

Deo joined the Film profession, which looks to be a simple level 10 career which also requires Celebrity Status.  It’s also fun because he’ll wear random costumes from work. It’s weird though, whenever I take a screenshot of him at work it looks completely wonky. Almost like it’s a completely different game.. Here, see for yourself:

Deo’s got a walk-on as 'Clumsy Student' in the highschool comedy "Traintracks".

Deo’s got a walk-on as ‘Clumsy Student’ in the highschool comedy “Traintracks”.

Hyperion joined the Arcitecture Designers inc. company, and gets his own portfolio to put pics in.  I’m kindof nervous about this career because it’s reportedly glitchy & I’m not the best with CAS, but I’m giving it a try.

Case #23: The Red Card

Case 23: The Red Card. A shady ump.  What is this world coming to..?  Disgruntled Tia Cox felt the referee made a shady judgment towards her sports’ prowess.  In my finest trench I set the meeting. The old sports arena, the colliseum of the gods, the olympians… Wait, what’s that thing in the sky?

“Brady wonders why it got so dark all of a sudden.” What does that mean?
Brady wonders why it got so dark all of a sudden. KA-BOOM!
KA-BOOM! Brady got hit by a rogue metorite.

Brady got hit by a rogue metorite. Oh no, the murderous purple Meteor!
Oh no, the murderous purple Meteor!

Brady turned into a reddish-coloured ghost Brady Davies - Beloved Private Investigator.
“Brady Davies – Beloved Private Investigator.”

Almost immediately Cyrus Diwan-Irwin asked Serefina on a date.  Too soon!

Day 159:

Still upset about their father’s unexpected death, Hyperion and Deo decided to form the band, “Disease Prize”. It’s a kindof punk rock duo that only plays upbeat songs.  It might also help with their goals of becoming famous.

Disease Prize, with Hyperion on guitar and Deo on piano.

“Disease Prize”, with Hyperion on guitar and Deo on piano.

Hyperion’s first architectural job is to build a Painting Study for Scot Morse. That shouldn’t be too hard, all he needs is an Easel, Desk and Chair, a Painting, and some Windows.

Deo is playing 'Zombie #4' in the thrilling horror "Day of the Dead Living".

Deo is playing ‘Zombie #4’ in the thrilling horror “Day of the Dead Living”.

Threw Prometheus a wedding party, but Dara Dent ran away.  But they got married eventually.

Absentism:

(This is where I took a year-long break.. Sorry again.)

So apparently when I was cleaning up my game files I accidentally erased Niobe and Keri’s family portraits.  This gets fixed next chapter. For some reason I switched the resolution so all pictures will look different from now on. Also crazy-stuff like this happened:

Prometheus: Tungsten, you’ve lost your head!

“Tungsten, you’ve lost your head!”

“I

I just can’t even..

Day 160:

Iodine: Please, what is the meaning of love? Tungsten: Cold metallic units of currency.

Iodine: “Please, share, what is the meaning of love?” Tungsten: “Cold metallic units of currency.”

Deo was promoted up to Best Boy (Film 2). By meeting a few Celebs he’s also risen up to Fame Leecher (Celebrity 1).

Deo has a bit part as 'Ensign Pilotte' in the Z-grade sci-fi "Exercising Gordon".

Deo has a bit part as ‘Ensign Pilotte’ in the Z-grade sci-fi “Exercising Gordon”.

Niobe got the Ice Personality achievement, so her ice sculptures will never melt!  That’s pretty cool because I like the ice medium of sculpting but hate how they were melting. Niobe also gets in a fight with the vampiress Demetria Diwan-Rader at Prometheus’ birthday party.

Prometheus is an Elder now.

Prometheus is an Elder now.

Day 161:

Since Deo and Hyperion both have the weekend off they spend time focused on their careers. Deo by befriending some of his colleagues and Hyperion by brushing up on his painting skill.

Niobe's awards ceremony.

Niobe’s awards ceremony.

Niobe’s awarded the Paranormal Medal & Paranormal Memento for her work in the Ghost Hunter career.  Also met the new mayor Elise Phelan.

Oh crud, Serefina’s not done her LTW yet!  Only saved 25 of 35 sofar.  I gotta get going on that!  And next week Iodine continues on her quest to be a real live artificial life.  Oh, and we’ll announce the winner of Generation 4 heir.

 

Community death count: 188 or so. Probably.

Legacy Score: 58. (Gen: 4 + LTW: 9 + Portraits: 8* + House: 13 + LTR: 24)

*It’s down 2 points because portraits got lost when cleaning saves.

Chapter 32: Twisted Firestarter

Oh right! I’m supposed to post once a month! I hope I’m not too rusty.

Week 22 – Day 148:

Serefina & Niobe have 2 days left before they’re Elders, Hyperion & Deo have 9 days until they’re YAs, and Belladonna has 2 days until she’s a teen.

It’s a Sunday!

Case #17: Tomatoes with a Pulse

Case 17: Tomatoes with a Pulse: Genetically Modified Organics.  What is this world coming to..?  Tiffany Dog-Gonnit wanted me to look into a shady grocer ripping off the rubes of this town.  I felt great but Dr. Sheri Dheri-Iheri told me I’d consumed dangerous HydroSimoxoNooper.  With cold hard facts this poison was flushed like last week’s casserole.

Prometheus cashed in his V-Card.

Prometheus cashed in his V-Card with Dara Dent; if you know what I mean.

Hyperion’s up to Fame Leacher (Level 1 Celebrity).

A very sleepy Tungsten went into the hot-tub and electrocuted himself.

A very sleepy Tungsten.  Tungsten electrocuting himself.

Day 149:

Prometheus did some repairs on Tungsten.  Were his eyes always RED? … Hmm, I’m sure he’ll be okay.

Prometheus repairing Tungsten.  Tungsten's eyes are Red.

Hyperion has chosen his LTW: Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous!  He must have §100,000 (done) & get up to level 5 Celebrity.

Niobe’s all like “What’s up!?”

Niobe’s all like “What’s up!?”

Prometheus is a Master Inventor!

Day 150:

“Terminate Grill-Cheese sandwich.”

“Terminate Grill-Cheese sandwich.”

Did Tungsten used to eat people-food..? Oh well, I’m sure it’s fine.

Case #18: His Number One Fan

Case 18: His Number One Fan: Self-stalkering.  What is this world coming to..?  Rock legend Chris Loe-Stee feared stalkers tracking his every move, but a guitar pick covered in spit with the same IP address proved otherwise.  To my chagrin local Doc Leslie Dent clued me in; with his split-personalities he’s a few prawns short of a galaxy.

Inspector Brady’s on the case!

Inspector Brady’s on the case!

Serefina has a building disaster at the Science Lab; a malfunctioning Simbot got loose and was terrorizing people.

Speaking of malfunctioning Simbots, Tungsten starts a huge fire at the Lucky Palms Sports Zone bar.  It looks like this:

“Let the flesh burn away. Ha, ha, ha.”

“Let the flesh burn away. Ha, ha, ha.”

Fire in the Sports Bar! Fire in the Sports Bar!

Fire in the Sports Bar! Fire in the Sports Bar!

Editor’s note: Kids, do NOT try this at home!  It is VERY unwise to start a fire on a community lot.  The fire seems to burn forever, you can’t call the fire department, the bar hours kicks everyone out, & elevators are just annoying. Also simbody could get hurt!

Day 151:

Somebody wrote an auto-biography for Serefina, and she needs to attend the book signing at the Solitary Novel.

Fire in the Sports Bar! Fire in the Sports Bar!

The Sports Bar fire continues to burn late into the afternoon.  Ironically, the fire department is asked to put out a small fire in someone’s house.

Serefina as an Elder.. Niobe as an elder.

Belladonna as a Teen.

For twin marketing purposes, Niobe needs to record a radio spot for Llama Musk Perfume too.

Day 152: 

Case #19: The Purloined Purse

Case 19: The Purloined Purse.  A lost leather.  What is this world coming to..?  Christy Kool-Tie dropped her pocketbook by the dunes and tasked me to dig it up.  I dig.  Turns out Tiffany Di-Gi claimed it under the ancient law of Inuentoribus Custodientes.  I’d never smack a dame so I offer a crisp Simoleon for it.  At least I worked on my tan.

*Tiffany was also featured in Case 11 and Case 17.

The bar continues to burn.

Another small house fire; the Sports Bar continues to burn with no sign of stopping…

Hyperion’s got a thing for Ella-Irwin Bellamore.. too bad she’s dating someone called Garick.

Deo’s promoted up to Spa Package Seller (3), Hyperion’s promoted to Shopping Music DJ (3), & Brady’s promoted to Inspector of Iniquities (8).

Niobe needs to hollow out some statues for criminals to hide drugs inside.

Day 153: 

Prometheus pushed Tungsten back into the sauna and reprogrammed him again, for the better.  Prometheus also got promoted to Notable Figure (2) by accident.

Pascal Morel is dying.  Lewis got adopted by the Vasquez-Steels and Rene got adopted by the Vasquez-Claremonts.

Hyperion and Deo play well together!

Belladonna’s got a job as a Bookstore Clerk.

Day 154: 

Belladonna started learning the Liquor-Mixing skill.

Brady earned the Eagle-Eyed Eavesdropper Medallion.

Fire in the Sports Bar!

After the Sports Bar fire incident (which is still burning…), it is decided that Tungsten is too wild and unpredictable.  He moves out!

Tungsten leaves the Legacy lot.

Next week: A new roommate joins the Legacy lot!

Community death count: 183 or so (Still waiting on the count from fire deaths.)

Legacy Score: 56. (Gen: 4 + LTW: 7 + Portraits: 10 + House: 14 + LTR: 21)

Theme song of the week: “Firestarter” by The Prodigy

“Robot-ninja; fast as lightning!”

“Robot-ninja; fast as lightning!”


Chapter 31: Brain Without a Face

Happy New Years everybody!  I hope everyone is having a great holiday!

Right, so who’s living on the Legacy lot these days?  I feel like I need a refresher.  We’ve got:

Serefina, 3rd generation mother and current torch-wielder, Firewoman.

Serefina, 3rd generation mother and current torch-wielder, Firewoman.

Brady, 3rd generation spouse, Detective.

Week 21 – Day 141:

Serefina and Niobe have 9 days left before they’re Adults, Hyperion and Deo have 1 day before they’re Teenagers, and Belladonna has 2 days before she’s a Child.

I wrote down “charitable moodlet sucks”.  I hope that makes sense!

Case 14: Fing-Ringers

Case 14: Fing-Ringers: Framery.  What is this world coming to..?  Jess Terribly-Sturdy had me accost Tiffany Dog-God over a fabulous missing ring.  During the course of my investigation I found the bling-thing fling-ed in the house belonging to the lying liar Jesse!  All your secrets come out in the end.

Day 142:

Cascadia dying.  Cascadia ghost.

During Deo and Hyperion’s birthday, their great aunt Cascadia died.  That’s another legacy member down.

Hyperion as a Teenager.  Deo as a Teenager.

As you can see, I kindof mixed up their favourite colors.  Deo was blue and Hyperion was orange, but now Deo is orange and Hyperion is blue.  Ah well, c’est la vie.  Also Serefina missed their party because of an all-night earthquake cleanup.

Day 143:

Deo's first fender-bender.

Deo’s first fender-bender.

The school wants Deo to get a part-time job (for some reason), so now he’s a Spa Specialist.  Hyperion gets one too so now he’s a Grocery Store Clerk.  Tungsten the robotic gardener learnt how to plant Egg and Cheese.

Case #15: The Pilfered Pocketbook

Case #15: Seagull of Love:  Gold-digging.  What is this world coming to..?  An evaporated love affair left B. Jones jonesing for his lady love.  It was just an act, the AWOL Reisa wanted his wallet, not his heart.  Poor sucker, but at least he knows now.

Brady got promoted up to Gumshoe (level 6).  Also Belladonna’s ages up to child.  I gave her the Shy trait, let’s see what that does.  She looks like this now:

Belladonna as a Child.

Belladonna as a Child.

Day 144:

In the future, Prometheus got hugged by an ancient Junkbot thanking him. Weird.  He also ate some Pineapple 2.0, which I assume I am allergic 2.0 to.

“Hello fire victim!”

“Hello fire victim!”

Serefina’s agent wants her to do a radio commercial for Llama Musk Perfume.  Because who wouldn’t want the pungent aroma of hair?

Day 145:

Pascal Morel is now dating Carrie Diwan-Irwin.  That was fast, Cascadia just died!

For some reason, Deo & Hyperion can flirt with Rene and Lewis even though they are … first cousins once removed?  Surely they are still related!

Brady got the Eagle-Eyed Eavesdropper Medallion for solving a jewel heist.  Funny, normally the Wolfe family are the ones stealing the jewels!

Brady as an Elder.

Brady as an Elder.

Brady’s birthday up to elder.  Crikey, he’s only solved 15 or 16 cases of the 35 for his LTW.  (I’m not counting the 4 that glitched out because they weren’t done.)

Day 146:

Belladonna, with her nose in a book.

Belladonna, with her nose in a book.

Belladonna had one conversation with Niobe and became a Notable Figure.  Well that was easy!

Case #16: Keep on Trollin’

Case 16: Brain without a Face: Marine biology.  What is this world coming to..?  Brenton asked me to search for his missing buddy, the local faceless genius Lakeside Retreat.  I followed the aquatic clues back to his sunken lair, to find the mislocated scientist removing piranha teeth.  Hey, it’s a living.

Brady was promoted to Licensed Snoop (level 7), which comes with the Sneaky-Sneak interaction.

Holy cow, Serefina got $10,000 from her commercial.  I wonder if that handsome fellow from the Paco Rabanne commercial earns that much.

Day 147:

Brady and Tungsten grinding.

Brady and Tungsten grinding.

Sigh, my notes are a mess:  “Tungsten was in a saloon when banditos attacked.”  … I don’t know what that means, but I think he and Prometheus were partying.

Time for a hookah break.

Time for a hookah break.

Sofia (one of Joe’s children) got engaged to Gerald Lancaster-Tanner (some guy).

Most of the family went to the Amateur Olympics, except Serefina went to the hospital to entertain sick children.

Oh my gosh, one of the children from the long-standing families, Ella Irwin-Bellamore.  She simply must marry Deo or Hyperion.  Her face genetics are perfect!  We must add your biological distinctiveness to our own.

We are the Borg.

And next Sim-week, somebody on the Legacy lot will have a mental breakdown.

Community death count: 175 or so

Legacy Score: 51. (Gen: 4 + LTW: 7 + Portraits: 10 + House: 10 + LTR: 20)
