Hello dear readers, hope you are all well. Let’s kick things off with the results of the heir poll.
I can announce that with 50% of the vote Susan will be the next torch holder
So last time Susan and Romana became teens, Koi became an adult and Magrat mourned the loss of her beloved Melon.
We kick things off this time with Magrat retiring.
Magrat: Hello, I would like to retire. Being Empress of Evil doesn’t have the same edge anymore.
Susan: Dishwashers broken, again.
Magrat: *polite clapping & Confetti*
Grim: Welp I’d better go prepare for another reaping. Be seeing you soon Magrat Mendoza.
(Her lifebar is full 😥 )
Melon: You will have another piece of Melon soon my love.
Well that’s comforting
OMG I love this girl! She is at level 4 in athletic already.
Susan: Go bother someone else, you’re making me loose my grip.
There are some glitches that just make me laugh! XD
Susan: It’s not funny from this angle. 😡
Aww mother & son bonding. ❤
Rory: So mum, how about letting me have another go at driving
Rory: Come on, I promise I won’t run any old ladies over this time.
Koi: That ‘old lady’ was your grandma.
Oops (I failed at getting a picture of this but just picture Magrat standing in the middle of the bonnett of a car! I was laughing too much to concentrate on pressing C)
This was such a great moment. Grim playing with Seymour.
Grim: So we meet again. Ate anyone interesting?
Seymour: No one that suits my delicate palette.
But what really put the icing on the cake was this.
Seymour: So what do you taste like?
Grim: I don’t have time for your childish games. *returns to wherever he came from*
Susan is not the only only skilling. Martha now has a point in guitar and a point in drums.
Magrat: My grandkids are so talented. ❤
Speaking of grandkids, this is how many Melon and Magrat have. Only one got Magrat’s skin colour, so sad. Guess the yellow skin genes are not as strong in my game as they were in Tam’s! XD
Romana: What do you mean no one voted for me. I demand a recount! 😡
Uh oh, someone is not taking the voting results well.
*leaves room slowly*
Lucky: Wow, this far into the chapter already and this is the first picture you have of me?
Well, all you are doing currently is solving cases which is repetitive and would make for a boring chapter. You still have a long slog before you get anywhere near completing your LTW. You have another 15 cases to solve before Susan grows up.
Proof that Magrat does leave the rocking chair on occasion! XD Also proof that Lucky does take a break from solving cases every no and then.
Koi: What’s going on? Why is the house void of furniture?
Lucky: Well we are moving to a new town so most of it has been packed up. I sold the rest.
I wanted to make the move before Martha became a YA and she is 3 days away from that so yeah we are moving.
So with everything all packed up. Oh and I am taking 24Hourspar, Giggles, Ready Brek & their two children with us. There is just too many other family members to take all of them. I need room in the new town for all the lovely handpicked sims I plan to drop in it.
So with one final look at the Lucky Palms house we are off.
Romana: Where in Llamas are we?
Welcome to Roaring Heights. So pretty ❤
Lucky: We appear to be on a beach.
Yes, this is your new home. Wait hang on a bit.
Tada! Yes I took the plunge and built a house from scratch. I am really happy with it. 😀 I did have to resist using the awesome two level apartment I usually use when playing this town.
This is the back. There will be a nice barbeque/relaxing area on the lower deck eventually. I did have one all nicely done but the game crashed.
All the gnomes make the journey across. I have a couple of new ones by the looks of it. I haven’t named them all yet as I am too lazy.
All the pictures and paintings are intact as well. I sold the personalised items so everyone now has a flower or a pot paint instead. You may also notice the row of rocking chairs. I took inspiration from other ISBIs such as this one for the basement.
Before I kick out the hangers on I let Martha have some bonding time with her mother. I used her one teen move to initiate socialising.
Martha: So did you enjoy the trip?
24Hourspar: It was ok but I am glad to have my feet the ground again.
So after an epic water ballon battle bonding session I move the spares out. (The other two teens are Ready Brek’s kids Whitney – renamed Wesley and Jan)
Ready Brek: Well it was nice to get some face time again but all good things must come to an end.
Magrat: Ah this is much better. I can see myself spending many hours here. (spoiler: She does!)
Koi meanwhile has taking up drinking.
Koi: I have to deal with getting older somehow.
Rory and Susan were still chucking water balloons at each other long into the evening. Little creepy how a paparazzi showed up and kept snapping pics of them. Nice outfit though.
Lucky rolled a wish to learn fishing so hear she is, fishing.
Lucky: Got to make the most of living on the beach.
Yay someone found the megaphone! XD
Koi: CONGRATULATIONS ON THE HEIRSHIP!!
Susan: Oh I think I just wet myself.
Koi: *evil cackle*
OK on to nicer things. It’s Martha’s birthday!
She doesn’t look all that different but I see a lot of Lucky in that face.
So after a quick makeover Martha is the first to fly the nest.
Martha: What?! I’m not the heir?
No you only got one vote.
Martha: You are kidding me, right?
Sorry Susan is just more popular than you. Never mind though there will be a butt load of shiny new sims moving to town soon that you can get your claws into.
Well, that’s it for now. I have to finish the house and repopulate the town so it may be a while before the next chapter but I will get a house tour up soon and an update on the new residents of Roaring Heights.
If I haven’t grabbed your sims yet and there is a sim you would like added there is still time. Let me know in the comments section below.
