The Mendoza ISBI

Idiots do it their way

Chapter 1.1: Starting at Midnight

9 Comments

Welcome to my first legacy story, the Mendoza Legacy. This is a thief legacy, rules can be found in the ‘about’ section.  As this is my first time writing something like this so I don’t know how good it will be. I am just having fun playing with the sims and hopefully the writing will get better as I go along. 🙂

The neighbourhood I have chosen to start this legacy in is Midnight Hollow which is available from the Sims 3 store.  It can be found here. Despite being a bit dark it is actually quite a pretty town with some interesting looking sims.

Jacklyn arrives at new home

This is our founder Jacklyn Mendoza, she is Evil, A Mooch, A Kleptomanic, Family Orientated and Handy. Her LTW is Possesion is 9 10ths of the law.

Say hi to everyone Jacklyn.

Jacklyn: Never mind that what I am doing in this field?

That field is your home.

Jacklyn: You. Have. GOT. To. Be. Kidding

Nope that’s your home.  You have to beg, borrow and steal to get enough money to build anything on that field.

Jacklyn: Can’t we come to some arangement on that?

Nope.

Jacklyn: 😡

Jacklyn is in the park I added opposite her field.  I sent her to harvest the crops and fruit trees growing there so she would have a source of free food to keep her going for a while

Jacklyn: Can’t I have a step or something, these apples are high up.

Stop moaning and get on with it.

There are also an abundance of wild flowers here.  I love these as some can be rare and have high sale prices.  A great source of income.

Jacklyn: Yes and they smell nice too, can I keep them?

Maybe a couple of the cheap ones to decorate your home (when you get one!)

Jacklyn: Not funny, I don’t see you living in a field.

I’d like to think I wouldn’t agree to do a legacy without knowing what’s involved first.

Jacklyn: 😡

Another great source of income is rummaging.  Time to get your hands dirty Jacklyn.

Jacklyn: Can’t I stick to the flowers, they smell nicer.

Variety keeps things interesting.

Jacklyn: Yes but can variety not include garbage cans?

Despite her whinging she found a couple of gems and a teddy bear as well as a truck load of rubbish.

With 7pm fast approaching it is time for Jacklyn to meet her first victim *ahem* I mean neighbour.  This is Samatha, she lives next to Jacklyn’s field.

Samantha: It’s nice to meet you, but why do you smell like you’ve been rolling in garbage.

Jacklyn: Um, you probably don’t want to know.  Listen I’ve just moved here and my house hasn’t been built yet. Could I use your shower?

Samantha: Sure come on in.  I’d be glad to help you out.

After cleaning up Jacklyn’s mind turned to other things, like the main reason she is here in the first place.

Jacklyn: Mwahahahaha!!!

Samantha: O.o

Jacklyn: This is nice, yoink!

That is a great start, keep it up!

She also stole the PC but that was it for the useful items.

Jacklyn: Curtains and lights are always useful

If you say so.  Higher priced items would be nicer and help more towards your LTW.

The next day I send Jacklyn back to the park.  She is on a mission to find a man, however she is not having much luck at finding a decent one.  This is Lucien Hyde he is a struggling artist who looks a bit like Marilyn Manson.

Jacklyn: We can still make use of him, can’t we?

Of course, he has a nice house in town so you will be visiting him later on.

Jacklyn then got stuck talking to the mascot.

Jacklyn: I am beginning to think everyone here is a freak

That is your assumption after meeting 3 people?!

Jacklyn: What? I say what I see.

And that’s all for now.  Hopefully there will be more interesting things happening next time.  I hope you will come back.  Thanks for reading and let me know what you think. x

  1. Interesting start. I haven’t heard of a thief legacy before so I’ll keep reading.

  2. Just found your site. This is an interesting start. I can’t wait to read more.
    I like Jacklyn’s look. Where did you get that hair?

    • Hi Terri, sorry I haven’t replied sooner. Been lots going on lately.
      Jacklyn’s hair is part of the Midnight Hollow pack on sims store but I imagine it will be available on it’s own.
      Glad to hear you like it so far

  3. This is an interesting idea; I’ve played with homeless sims where you have to do similar things, but that’s about money not furnishing a house. Liking it so far!

  4. I found your story in wordpress suggestions. This is an interesting start, I have never seen a Thief legacy before.
    Jacklyn is pretty, I like her hair colour. 🙂 Midnight Hollow is an interesting town, I may have to head to the store and get it.
    Can’t wait to read more and catch up with the family
