Story Newsletter: August 2019

Put on your Sunday clothes there’s lots of world out there, Boolpropians!

Well, July was a month, wasn’t it? I had a BLAST getting to run the SimNaNoWriMo Event, and I wanted to give a proper shoutout to everyone who participated! We all did incredibly and ended up with some phenomenal totals as a site:

Image

So here’s to us as a site! I’ve also put together a survey for anyone to take regarding SimNaNo (even if you didn’t participate)! If you could do me a very big favor and fill it out so I can get a feel for what month we should hold SimNaNo next year, as well as any improvements you might want to see! In September’s Newsletter, I’ll post the results of the chosen month and if we’ll be keeping the Personal Goals!

As for those who participated in SimNaNoWriMo 2019 and is also in a TGBO House: You’ll get +30 House Points for each medal you received (up to +60), so don’t forget to add that to your scorecard! Stars will also be awarded, 1 Lube Star if you participated or 1 Pulper Star if you met your Personal Goal!

August is a quieter month, however there’s much to look forward to!




Image

The Challenge Spotlight has swung around with an influx of EPIC Simmers braving Boolprop’s EPIC (Evolution and Progress in Change)! I have such admiration for such a challenge and as such wanted to remind everyone to go support their local EPIC Simmer. The EPIC is a long, legacy-type challenge with a twist and lots of interesting restrictions. Watch your sims grow and change over time and take different paths to unlock more features for future generations. It's a tough challenge, but so worthwhile. For those who are brave enough to try it can find the rules here:
Sims 2 | Sims 3 | Sims 4
And remember if you are successful in your pursuit, you’ll be rewarded with this medal: Image

August Winners

Congratulations to our new winners!

Teh Faylyers ISBI ~ Sunday Spring’s Easter

Please don't forget to stop in and offer an amazing story a Kudos. It takes 30 seconds and will make someone's whole day (or week)! There’s tons of stories out this month so go out and make someone’s day! I’ve awarded Lube Stars to those who gave Kudos last month!
New Member Stories this Month: Give 'em a warm, Boolprop welcome!

New Stories this Month: Stop by and support our awesome members' new stories!

Anniversaries: Congratulations on a(nother) year with your story!

Some Kudos: You've been noticed!
  • Pony updated The NEW Pokemon Legacy after a short break and it’s so amazing to see it return!
  • The Bookacy Family Alphabet Adventures by katrisims is back from the inspiration of SimNaNo! What a creative update to come back with, too!
  • Seera’s Tortall Legacy continues pushing towards victory and I’m cheering loud for you! You’re SO CLOSE!
  • The Allen Invasion by Taube is back with a new generation! So excited for yet another generation to read!
  • Loralie0512 also got new posts for 100 Baby Underwoods and I highly recommend checking them out!
  • Rawla also got more updates for her Will ISBI that always makes me so excited at the prospect. I have a weak spot for ISBIs, as you know.
  • Livvielove (who me?) got a kudos from Blamsart (omg hi) for This is Real, “For starting a story off with a solid edit heavy bang! I love reading all your stuff ~”
  • Snazzle got a kudos for We’ve got Spirits from ciyrose, saying: “This challenge is already a hoot, but the character made for this story has so much personality that comes out in the blog and it's hilariously funny at time. Inspired me to even start one of my own. Can't wait to see how it turns into an ISBI later.”

Completed Stories: Congratulations on finishing!

I hope everyone enjoys their August. Congratulations, again, SimNaNo-ers! I’ll be writing you again in September!

So on board with cheering on the Epic players. Trust me when I say it's a ton of fun t play, especially if you've already done one (or more!) legacies and find it all too easy. Or if you'd like something more complicated/restrictive but find an Apocalypse too intimidating; that was my reason for starting, and I found it a great balance between normal legacy playing and the restrictions of an apoc.

Congrats to the SOTM winners, as well; seems I have some more things to read!
