Babbling Brooks, an Insane TS4 Legacy ~DEAD

So it is time to start a new legacy, maybe to finally complete one in Sims 4. I have played around with them, never passing the 3rd generation because of either boredom or the death of the heiress from embarrassment. Having completed legacies in both Sims 2 (Trek Universe) and Sims 3 (Heavenly Stars), it is time to complete one in Sims 4. And, I want the medal.

For me, the hardest part can be coming up with a theme that I can enjoy for 10 generations. I was able to locate a good list of names based upon the Harry Potter style of names, stumbled across a surname that immediately brought to mind a legacy title, and immediately had the founder’s name. This is a good sign as I can spend hours trying to name a sim.

Having just completed a Differences in the Family Tree challenge (Miles to Go) I do not want to enter this legacy with a bunch of rules and restrictions or targeted generations. The chosen heir/ess will determine what happens in their generation based upon their randomly generated traits. I will be keeping score but won't necessarily be trying to max the score out.

Good start! :) Ariella is a cute founder.

Spoiler:
I can't believe you tricked poor Don into being a committed legacy spouse. :lol:

Aww, Basil and Avery are cute names. But Bethany is cute too. Will you be doing heir polls or choosing heirs yourself? Because it will be hard to choose between these three, I think.

Also, now Don can relax and enjoy his new Bodybuilder aspiration. No more babies for him. :lol:

I will be doing a poll as soon as Basil is a teen. Which means I am having to be nice to all of them. Normally I just choose the youngest or the oldest, but I want to let the masses choose... :)
