The Right to Play – Chapter 1Hello everyone who knows of me and is reading this out of sheer boredom orpity (or from pure interest, whatever floats your boat). I am back with another legacy (oh no), which I hope to complete before I am off to University. The above picture is not from this tale, but rather from the previous attempt I hadknown as New Beginnings. Because of the premise I set out for myself, to play each neighbourhood for the same amount of time as the legacy, I wound up becoming very bored. So I started again. There was, however, an idea from that legacy that I will keep: earning the right to expansion packs. Each generation, a new EP will be installed (in the chronological order) and eachSP will be installed for special events. I will earn my right to play the final TS2 game with this new family.
Meet the woman who will help me achieve this: Winona Almsburry. Winona is a Fortune sim with the personality 9/2/6/3/5, making her a Virgo as well.Winona, as you can see, has skintone 4, brown eyes, and black hair. Her face is a mix of a few Maxis premade faces and her outfit is entirely Maxis.
Because Seasons will not be around for a while, the initial house gets to be set up in that old, beloved legacy style: lawn-living with an outhouse. Winona: “I never signed up for this!” I know, Winnie, but it will get better soon.
As you can see, I bought the more expensive stove to make a matching set for the kitchen nook. Winona will need high cooking skills to get by. Winona: “Are you saying that I can’t cook?!” Not yet, but soon. Winona: “*grumble*”
Winona takes a job as a Team Mascot to make money.Winona: “There should be some law against this kind of treatment.”
And the first walk-by that comes along is who her future husband will be:Komei Tellerman. Now, with all due respect, Komei isn’t that bad looking. Hehas a couple of sharp features, but he isn’t ugly. His kids can turn out that wayif mixed with the right genetics, but his face can be pretty cute on some sims.
Winona: “Listen, I know this sounds funny, but I need to marry someone, havekids, and continue this process for ten generations in order to help this dude with a computer; do you want to help me?” Komei: “So you’re in a legacy?” Winona: “You know about these kinds of things?” Komei: “Yeah, I’ve been in a few before- and some others challenges, too. Look, let’s start off as friends and I can help make things a little easier.” Winona: “Cool.”
Komei: “Trust me; everything gets better pretty quickly if you put your mind to it.” Winona: “You’re really- wait, what’s your angle?” Komei: “No angle, just doing what I always tend to do.”
Winona: “*slight grin*”Komei: “Alright, so I think you’re cute! What’s the harm in that?”
It’s a- let me first explain how the naming system is going to work for thisgeneration. I was listening to my iPod when this kid was born and the song“I’m Just A Kid – Simple Plan” came on. I figured, what the hell, the kids willbe named after singers. So welcome the heir to the Almsburry family Pierre Bouvier Almsburry, named after the lead singer of Simple Plan. Pierre has skintone 2, black hair, and brown eyes. His personality is 9/1/8/6/3 making him a Virgo.
This shot is here because I want to explain something: Winona is an awesomemom: she changed Pierre without queue from me! That has never happened before... spooky.
Blue spewing liquids… we all know what that means :D
Pierre wastes no time growing up into a toddler… too bad I couldn’t get a face shot.
And… he looks like his dad. Something I’ve noted from the basegame is that there is an outfit that everysim automatically grows up in for each lifestage and each sex. You get bored of them pretty quickly.
So welcome to the world little Chantal Kreviazuk Almsburry, the official spare of the family. The song that came on for her was “All I Can Do – Chantal Kreviazuk” making it pretty easy for me to remember who to name this kid. Both of the kids are named after Canadian singers…huh… Chantal has skintone 2, black hair, and brown eyes. Places your bets as to whether or not the Almsburry family has clone syndrome.
Pierre: “Why do I have to go to school? If I’m going to be the legacy heir, I need to learn how to make babies instead of math.” But math can be fun. Pierre: “Really? Name one kind of fun math.”Uh…vectors are fun for some people. And probability is fun for gamblers. Pierre: “…” I’ll be quiet now.
Winona: “Hey son, I finally was promoted.” Pierre: “*stoic face*” Winona: “Why do my kids hate me?”
Pierre: “Look, Chantal, the sim in the mirror is you.” Chantal: “Yay, me!”Pierre: “Remember, if mommy’s around, we don’t say anything, okay.” Chantal: “I ‘member ‘cause I start.”
Chantal: “It funny making mommy think we moo’ta.” Pierre: “Ready to grow up?”
I never told you Chantal’s personality, did I? Well it’s 6/5/6/7/5 making her a pretty evened out Aquarius.
This is also child her. Again, she’s totally a maxis sim. None of my CC seems to be working beyond hacks.
Oh, and a bedroom wing was added to the house in recent days. Yeah… moving on.
Anyways, this is teenage Pierre. I tried my best to base his style off of the realPierre Bouvier, but very little in the original game works. Either way, Pierre is a Popularity sim now.
Chantal: “Hey mom, when did we get a couch and a big screen TV… and walls?” Winona: “Well, I recently became the coach of the Sim City-“ Chantal: “Next time, just say promotion.” Chantal: “Glad to know that you can speak.”
Chantal: “So, Pierre, I just got an A+ on my second day of school. How long did it take you?” Pierre: “A few years.” Chantal: “So… I’m smarter than you?” Pierre: “No, I just have better priorities.”
Skip a few days of boring boringness and it’s now time for Chantal to grow up into…
A ROMANCE SIM! Yes, she rolled a four so now I have her kissing everyone.Yay! Anyways, her teenage style is based more-so after Avril Lavigne’s first album style. Chantal will probably be more of herself in college (which I have unlocked once this chapter is over).
Winona: “By the way, if you hadn’t figured it out yet, your brother’s the heir.” Chantal: “Oh…okay?”
Chantal: “Well, there’s still college for me.” Pierre: “What are you talking about?”Chantal: “College. You know, post secondary education.” Pierre: “Never heard of it.”
Chantal: “What the hell, Pierre? How can you say that you’ve never heard of college?”Pierre: “Because no such thing exists. But, if you’re so inclined, name one.” Chantal: “Sim State University.” Pierre: “What are you talking about?”
Chantal: “I… never mind.”So that’s where I’m ending the chapter. 66 pages of fun and excitement and my first EP will be installed. What twists and turns will unravel themselves next time on The Right to Play? Spoiler: Snape kills Dumbledore.
