Chapter 39: Lasers and Rock Music

Happy Movember all. I’ve been working on something that’s kindof interesting, it’s related to the Legacy Challenge. It’s not done yet, but I’ll post a link when it looks good.

Week 29 – Day 197:

It was an unseasonable warm Sunday.  Hyperion & Deo have 4 days left until they’re Elders, Iris has 8 days before she’s an Elder, and Europa has 1 day left till she’s a Teen.

Iris asks Dr. Griselda what about her baby’s gender.

Iris asks Dr. Griselda what about her baby’s gender.

Iris was curious if her baby is a boy or a girl, so she asked the family doctor.  Through osmosis, Griselda knew it’s a boy!  Then Iris asked some rando/her best friend/her boss Rhonda Diwan-Irwin for a promotion, and she got it!  Now she’s a 2nd Unit Director (7).

Europa and her cousin (?) Winston Morel-Wolfe had a play-date.  So much fun, I get to test out some of the Generations’ features.  They play pretend, have a Treehouse party*, and host a banquet.

*There ain’t no party like a Treehouse party!

Editor’s note: Hyperion’s actually gaining celebrity points now!  As I mentioned before, the system was broken & he was making 0% progress towards the next celebrity level.  After taking him out of the Architecture career, the system works fine.  I don’t know why, just cuz..

Day 198:

Iris going into labour. Iris giving birth to twin boys.
Iris giving birth to twin boys.

In the wee hours of the morning, Iris goes into labour.  As somewhat predicted, Iris gave birth to twin boys.  Gawain Wolfe, and Roche Obsidian Wolfe.  They’re both Evil; Gawain rolls Clumsy and Roche rolls Hates the Outdoors.  Gawain’s got brownish eyes, and Roche has the Wolfe-red eyes.

Unfortunately, someone decided to spread a rumour about Iris getting arrested.  Because they hate babies, or something.

Hyperion blasts it into hyperspace as 'Left Bridge Guard' in "Germ".

Somebody’s long lost Auntie Francine sent the twins a matching pair of creepy dolls.  Piewar for Gawain and Figment for Roche.

Princess Europa had a themed pool party.

Also it’s Europa’s birthday up to Teenager.  She’s so pretty.  I could clone a whole family of Europas and be happy.  This time I chose for her the Nurturing trait.

Also Iodine (the android) & Doug Claremont-Gilbert got married!  Can Simbots have babies?

Day 199:

Accurate 3D representation.

Accurate 3D representation.

What a mess.  The lot is just out-of-control from objects & dirty dishes and, and.. and, cleaning sinks!  It’s just too much, I can’t even!  I finally caved* and hired a butler.  Classy fellow with a monocle, his name is Jefferson Hamel.

*I hate wasting money on frivolous things, but the Wolfes are so rich it doesn’t even matter.

 Hyperion has a bit part as 'The Bartender' in "Strange Legs".

Hyperion was promoted to Best Boy (2).  And after weeks of glitching he’s a Renowned VIP (4).  FINALLY!  One step closer to his LTW.

I signed Europa up to take Art as an after-school activity.  Not as useful as Ballet, but I guess it’s something.  Also she’s going on her first Field Trip (hopefully) to Area-52 Test Labs tomorrow.

Europa and Claude are related.. somehow.

Europa and Claude are related.. somehow.

Europa and Claude Dent-Wolfe have the flirty-hearts for eachother.  He’s Prometheus’ son, so.. 1st cousin once removed.  Eww, EAxis.

Day 200:

Editor’s note: Holy, land-cow.  It’s day 200!!  I never expected to get this far!  I mean, I hoped I would, but since I have no follow-through on anything it seems really unlikely.

Iris was promoted up to Script Writer (8).  Nearly there!  Also the local theatre wants Hyperion to cameo in their play.

Hyperion plays 'Devon MacLeish' in the remake of "The Buffster: Vampire Killer".

Hyperion plays ‘Devon MacLeish’ in the remake of “The Buffster: Vampire Killer”.

To celebrate 200 Sim-days, I threw a big-arsed party.  My graphics card on my laptop was like “Please, just no, have mercy on me!”  But I just grinned and did it anyways*.  To hell with 10+ framerates!  Muahahaha!

*Maybe this is one of the reasons my laptop died.. 😳

The 200 Day Party stage.

The 200 Day Party stage.

As you can see, there’s 19 FX machines, 7 strobe lights, 8 staircases (in case of emergency), and 4 huge dancefloors.  With all the different effects firing at once, it looked kindof nuts.

Hyperion and Deo performing for the crowd.

Deo kicks it out as Kung-Fu master ‘Uanko’ in “Shatterball”, with Hyperion as ‘Alley Guy 2’.

Hyperion was promoted up to Key Grip (3).  Deo’s considered a Marathon Runner, so he’ll live a good long life.

Also Jonathan Morel-Wolfe likes Europa.  That’s her… second cousin.  So technically legal, but weird.

“Okay honey, I’m gonna teach you how to drive!” “Have you been drinking, dad?”

“Okay honey, I’m gonna teach you how to drive!” “Have you been drinking, dad?”

Hmm, Dara Dent-Wolfe and Donte Claremont-Dreamer are dating.  I wonder whatever happened to Jamel?

Iris going into labour. Iris giving birth to twin boys.
Gawain and Roche are now Toddlers.

There were 4 birthdays on this day, but I started the whole “birthday cake” process kindof late so only Gawain and Roche aged up on the right day.

Day 202:

Continuing from yesterday, Deo and Hyperion aged up very late in the night (or early in the morning).

Iris going into labour. Iris giving birth to twin boys.
Hyperion and Deo are now Elders.

Deo’s reached the pinnacle of fame, a celebrated celebrity, he’s now a Superstar (5).  Too bad that wasn’t his LTW instead of Hyperion.  Speaking of, Hyperion’s been promoted up to Personal Assistant (4).

Europa misbehaves slightly and releases 50,000 frogs from the Biology department.  That’s so impressive I’m not even mad about it.

Europa and pillow-fight Winston have the flirty hearts too. Weird..

Europa and pillow-fight Winston have the flirty hearts too. Weird..

Europa’s gotta get ready for The Big Dance next Monday.  Her 3 possible dates are:

  • Jonathan Morel-Wolfe – Brown hair and brown eyes. 2nd cousin once removed.
  • Rogelio Diwan-Irwin – Short black hair and glasses. Not related.
  • Winston Morel-Wolfe – Red hair and Wolfe-red eyes. Jonathan’s brother.

We’ll try the one not related by blood first..

At least the butler dispenses advice: “Sims are shaped like lawn darts. Do keep that in mind next time you’re outside.”

So Dara’s ex-rebound Jamel is dating the infamous Dr. Sheri Diwan-Irwin.

Day 203:

Belladonna, now the proud owner of “The Grind” dance club.  Myahaha!

Belladonna, now the proud owner of “The Grind” dance club.  Myahaha!

Well, it looks like Belladonna tricked me.  Last week I said that she’d completed her LTW because she has lvl 10 Mixology skill and I had purchased “a bartop counter”, as in furniture.  I didn’t realize that she needed to own “a literal bar”, as in a business.  But after investment, 100%, she is for sure a Master Mixologist. LTW FTW!

“We really need some classier doors in this place.”

“We really need some classier doors in this place.”

Hyperion’s still trying to become more famous, so I send him to meet Isidro, the famous ghost.  (It turns out if you’re famous and die in TS3, you are forever stuck haunting the dance club where you died.  Bummer.  Or awesome, depends how you look at it.)

Next week: Ohmagod, it’s like, totally The Prom!

 

Community death count: 291 or so.

Legacy Score: 81. (Gen: 5 + LTW: 12 + Portraits: 14 + House: 20 + LTR: 30)

Well that’s unnerving.

Chapter 38: Mission: Vengeance Murder

Happy Friday the 13th all! Hopefully you haven’t encountered the mysterious shade that attacks teenage Sims at nearby Camp Plumbob Lake.

Week 28 – Day 190:

What a sopping hot Sunday.  Serefina & Niobe are 111, Hyperion & Deo have 11 days left until they’re Elders, Iris has 15 days before she’s an Elder, and Europa has 1 days left till she’s a Child.

Deo was able to do his cameo as the door-to-door salesman in in “Llamas vs Gnomes”.  Geez, they’ve been working on that movie forever!  Serefina’s cameod in it too.  With all the courage Iris could muster, she asked her boss for a raise.  Fortunately, she got promoted up to Production Manager (5).

Belladonna had an unremarkable birthday up to Adult.  Since she’s basically a failure as a virtual being, she’s having a mid-life crisis.  Also she got raised up to B-List Celebrity.

Day 191:

The paparazzi posted a story that Serefina passed out in the park (which was true), so she sued them and won her case!  They also wrote about Niobe being arrested by the cops (which was false), but when she sued she lost her case.  I guess that’s just the way the Alaska Bakes.

The French Literacy Guild wants Iris to hand-deliver one of her books to France.  Sadly, they don’t realize she’s never written anything.

Europa aged up to the cutest little kid, her facial genetics are just awesome.  She rolled the Perfectionist trait, and Iris signed her up for Ballet class.

Hyperion’s asked to perform at Waylon’s Haunt again.  This might be the band’s big break, we can’t miss out on it again!

Belladonna is master of the Mixology skill!  I guess that’s her LTW completed then, no way she can mess it up now..

Day 192:

I really like the color-scheme I picked out for Europa. The bright pastels and the dark hues match well.

Riding the bus to school.

Riding the bus to school.

Dara Dent-Wolfe has started dating Jamel Diwan-Gilbert.  Prometheus literally just died last week.  Literally.  Ooooh, they will be punished!

Iris has a big decision; the President of the movie studio wants her to choose between Acting or Directing.  Since I want some variation, she goes with Directing and is promoted to Storyboardist (6).

Jogging around town.

After dropping off permission slips at City Hall, Europa gets signed up for a field trip to the Mausoleum.  Creepy!  (That’s one of the new features in this expansion, kids get to take time out of school and visit a random rabbithole around town.)

Remember that one time a dinosaur broke into the Legacy House and attacked Deo?

Niobe fighting with the widow-hussy Dara Dent.

Even though Niobe wasn’t even that close to Prometheus, he was her brother. So she’s decided to try and kill Dara and Jamel.  Her plan is simple:

  • Step 1: Attack Dara. ✔
  • Step 2: Befriend Jamel. Don’t tell him about searing hatred.  Possible seduction..?
  • Step 3: Light their house on fire.
  • Step 4: Install Scary Computer booby trap.
  • Step 5: Hideous potions.
  • Step 10: Profit?

Whoops, Europa missed her field trip.  My bad!

Deo called in sick so that he could play with Hyperion at the bar.  Sim’s Magazine wrote them up and said it’s a “decent place to hang”, but unfortunately Deo got caught for playing hooky.

Sadly, the Grim Reaper comes for us all in the end, and it’s time for another Heir to die.

Serefina Wolfe - She saved a lot of People on Fire. Serefina's family mourns her loss.
Serefina Wolfe – She saved a lot of People on Fire.

Well, Serefina had a good life. And 114 days old has got to be the record sofar, right? Perhaps in grief or madness at the loss of her twin sister, Niobe works hard through the night to develop new potions to torture her rivals. She’s rewarded with a Bladder-Explosion juice, a Stanky-Stink sap, and a boring Obiectum Reparo salve. (Step 5: ✔)

Day 194:

EAxis did an icky; Irma Dent-Wolfe and Shane Morel-Wolfe are now dating.  (That’s Prometheus’ daughter with Cascadia’s grandson.) 😳

Europa learning how to fix the toilet.

Europa learning how to fix the toilet.

So, it turns out that Niobe can’t plant any booby-traps. Something about not being a child, I think. Fortunately she has an impressionable young mind under her thumb. Niobe is willing to let Europa off the hook for accidentally skipping the field trip if Europa helps her exact revenge by planting traps all over Dara’s house.  (Step 4: ✔)  Poor child, being forced to do her evil aunt’s bidding!

Europa is clearly depressed about grandma Serefina, playing alone in the corner.

Europa is clearly depressed about grandma Serefina, playing alone in the corner.

Iris threw a funeral for Serefina.  It was a mild-success, since she got raised to Renowned VIP (celebrity lvl 4).

I think between planning a murder and the death of her sister, it was just too much for Niobe’s heart as she follows Serefina into the great beyond.

She made a lot of enemies. Niobe's nephews and niece feel bad she died.
She made a lot of enemies.

Well, Niobe had a mean life. And 115 days old has got to be the new record, right? Also the never-before-mentioned scumbag paparazzi Mitchel Blackburn passed on.  Rest in virtual hell, jerk!

“As you can see, my house designs are awesome.”

Hyperion’s promoted up to Aesthetic Architect (8). Still stuck at level 3 Celebrity though..

Editor’s note: For some reason, Hyperion just wasn’t getting any more Celebrity points. I measured it, and he was actually losing points every day, even though he was completing opportunities. You can read more about it here. I finally decided that the Architecture career was futzing up his ability to gain fame and friends.

So, there were 7 Sims on the Legacy Lot and now we’re down to 5.  And right now Europa’s the only heir which is kindof risky in case of something tragic happening.  So Deo and Iris get a little bit cosy to sure up the family legacy with another child.

Fortunately, Hyperion is VERY unlucky. Unlucky trait. The Grim reaper appears and rasps “Your constant misfortune amuses me. It would be a shame to take that priceless entertainment away.”  So yaa, resurrection! After reflecting on his near-death experience, Hyperion decides to retire from architecture and join the Acting career.

Belladonna finished her midlife crisis with 5 wishes.  Well, she may be a general disappointment, but at least she did better than her brothers with her existential crisis.

Chapter 37: Rumour Has It..

Hi all.  Happy Canaday Day! I have been super-duper exhausted lately.  My grandfather had a fall a few weeks ago and they put a pin in his hip, so I’ve been worried about him.  😦  Selling the house, we also went through a few weeks of hell that is daily tours and Open Houses before getting a decent offer of purchase.  Now all that’s left is renovating the new place, decluttering this place, & moving out.

Week 27 – Day 183: Sun

This Sunday was very hot and humid.  Serefina & Niobe are 104, Hyperion & Deo have 18 days left until they’re Elders, Iris has 1 days before she’s an Adult, and Europa has 1 days left till she’s a Toddler

The latest rumour is that Hyperion peed on himself in public.  Gross and untrue.  He lost 4 of his closest friends, including the very beautiful Kiki Ash.  He sued for slander & the rumours are gone!  (Unfortunately the friendships are still gone too.)  Also the last babysitter sucked and was fired, so the new one is named Aileen Mazza.

Like most famous people, Hyperion and Deo have taken up Yoga.

With Europa as the defacto Heir right now, and since they are engaged, Deo and Iris should really legitimize their relationship.  Since they both have the Insane trait, I was a little worried about the wedding.  But it seems to have gone off without a hitch*!
*Or is that with a hitch?

Since it’s a celebrity marriage, Iris is elevated to B-List Celebrity status (3).

Day 184: Mon

Editor’s note: The game tried to give Iris & Deo 56 work days off for their honeymoon.  Crickey, that’s like 12 Sim-weeks!  I changed it to 1 Sim-day instead.

I'm... not entirely sure what this is. But Deo and Iris appear in the space odyssey "Turtles Don't Have Pretty Faces".

I’m… not entirely sure what this is. But Deo and Iris appear in the space odyssey “Turtles Don’t Have Pretty Faces”.

After the music-gnome’s attack, Deo organizes all the sheet music at the bookstore and is rewarded with a free song called “Summer Hayrides”.  I’ll probably never use it because I hate losing rare books after a Sim reads it.

You remember Disease Prize?  That band Deo and Hyperion formed in Week 23 that never practices and performed once?  They’re asked to play a late night show at Waylon’s Haunt between 12pm to 3am.  That shouldn’t be too hard to manage.

Iris got promoted up to Key Grip (3).

Iris is asked to film the State of the City address for the mayor.  The mayor’s probably gotta talk about why the giant man-eating Viridiplantae was set on fire when it was just filing for a parking permit. Also I put up a brand new white-picket fence to keep the paparazzi out.  Now they’ll stop spreading untrue rumours about the Wolfes!

Day 186: Wed

Deo as Squadron Leader Les Reck.

Deo as Squadron Leader Les Reck.

Deo and Hyperion’s Mid-Life Crises are over; Deo did 2 wishes & Hyperion did 3 wishes.  I don’t think that’s enough, their speech bubble say they still feel unsatisfied with life. 😦 But isn’t dissatisfaction with one’s accomplishments an integral part of the human experience?

Whoops!  Disease Prize missed their gig; I mixed up 12pm noon and 12am midnight!! They were supposed to perform in the middle of the day!  Donnell Patel is pretty upset because his bar is even more boring than ever! Well at least Hyperion and Kiki got a chance to patch things up.

Rumours spread that Niobe was arrested for grand theft syrup.  So it seems the new fence doesn’t help after all..

Day 187: Thurs

Deo got promoted to Superstar Actor (10)!!  That’s his LTW complete!  For his hard-work he received a Simmy Award, a professional actor trailer, and earned a Legacy point.  Iris also got promoted to Personal Assistant (4).

Prometheus’ children Irma and Claude.

Hyperion’s Agent tells him to promote the Blooming Cactus Bistro to 3 different Sims so he can earn a few Celebs.  “Hopefully the restaurant will improve its mediocre food now!”  Also Deo’s asked if he can cameo in the pretentious play.

Iris got around to filming her address for work.  Good on her!  Another rumour spreading about Niobe being arrested for a misdemeanor “reckless tickle-fight”.  She lost 8 friends, what the hell? Unfortunately, she lost her boyfriend too.

Zachery Ross, Niobe’s older boy-toy passed away.

Zachery Ross, Niobe’s older boy-toy passed away.

To try and increase Hyperion’s prestige, Serefina & Deo invite all their celebrity friends to the park as a lure for the paparazzi.  To generate interest in soft news, Serefina also does her “pass out” routine.

“Oh boy, what a scoop!  Celebrity and girlfriend standing in park.  This will make front-page headlines!”

“Oh boy, what a scoop!  Celebrity and girlfriend standing in park.  This will make front-page headlines!”

Editor’s note: I’m pretty sure Hyperion’s Celebrity points counter is broken.  He got his first celebrity level in Week 22, the second in Week 24, the third in Week 25, & now it’s hardly moved at all since then.  Every time he finishes an Opp the counter seems to ignore the new points.  I even tried resetting him a few times but it didn’t help.

You know, I don’t think I mentioned Belladonna once this post. 😛

And yep, I think that’s it for the week.  Tune in next time to see Hyperion die!  (Oops, uh, Spoiler Alert!)

Community death count: 259 or so.
