I’m back with a second installment of the asylum challenge I’m playing. No recap of the first week, otherthan there was a lot of chaos and Melanie did not find her LTW career in the paper so she skilled and madefriends in preparation of getting it.Here’s part two of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest: A Bradford Legacy Asylum Challenge.
I’ll start out by letting (almost) everyone sum things up in their own words. For the most part, people arenot too happy, other than Melanie. But she’s the controllable, and is Knowledge so all the skills she’sgetting for her job make her happy.Rather than go chronologically, let’s touch on the good, the bad, and the ugly. It’ll be more fun that way.
The GoodJan is showing her true colors, and is being mean to everyone.
Or is boring them with her lack of conversation skills.
And everyone is having fun gossiping about her, as she used to gossip about other in the legacy.
Their favorite item of gossip? That time she passed out on the floor.
But right now we’re talking about the good. And there has been no more passing out, since the offendingbed hack is gone. Everyone’s on a pretty good rotation, and so far there’s only been one case of sofasleeping. This is good.
A week in, everyone’s starting to be besties with everyone. Here’s Rebecca and Timothy with their happyfaces…
…and lastly Jan and the Prof. So for the most part, everyone’s getting along.
The other good thing is that people are getting skill points. Here’s Jan, working on her creativity.
After Melanie maxed her creativity (the easel was great for that because it allowed her to keep the othersfrom using it while she had a painting on it), I sold the easel and bought the synthesizer thing that camewith Free Time. Everyone seems to like that a lot more, and it allows everyone else to use it as well.
And the Prof likes the telescope, and he’s earned us about $1000 by finding random stars.
And after removing the custom foods from my DL folder, everyone’s been forced to use the stove, and noone’s set the house on fire. And (almost) no one’s burned food (more on that later).
And Melanie has been a real trooper. She checks the paper every day, and when the criminal careerdoesn’t show up, she fixes a group meal or two and gets right to skilling. She’s getting really good at yoga.
And she’s up to 4 friends outside the house, 2 of them best friends. I think Criminal Mastermind needs 8friends, so she’s halfway there.
She’s maxed her body skill, as you can see with the snazzy little doodad over her head.
And I missed the head doodad, but here she is maxing mechanical. She’s also maxed creativity, so shehas all the skills (and then some) that she needs to reach the top of the career.That’s all I have for the good. Let’s move on.
The BadThe dance sphere is still kicking everyone’s butt. Here’s Nicole getting booted, much to Jan’s approval.
…and I must admit, she’s got some pretty sweet moves. It suits her somehow.
And then she got booted out of the dance sphere one too many times, and it was too much for the poor girl.
“I can’t have bubble baths or a bubble blower or go to a community lot or go on an outing! Why?! WHY?!”
Since I can’t select the inmates, I can’t show you the therapist who came to cure her. I was going toshow you the reactions of the other inmates but there was no one in the room. Why, you ask?
Oh, because Rebecca decided to IGNORE the EMPTY shower, and take a sponge bath, shooing everyoneout. Lovely.
So the therapist helped Muriel out, and she’s been okay since. I think she got a BFF want filled orsomething, because she hasn’t done a worry action since.
Two weeks completed, and still no criminal career. I’ve shut aging off, and my next goal is to get herfriends count up to 10 so there’s no question of her being promotable. I’m also going to have her work onsome skills, so she’s platinum when the job does come so she gets promoted faster.It’s fun. I’m hoping that Matthew goes into aspiration desperation or failure, but I’m not holding out muchhope. He’s been watching movies, so his Film & Literature enthusiasm is up, and I keep seeing +500aspiration points over his head, so I’m guessing it’s from watching movies.That’s all for now. More to come.
