New challenge eh? This looks interesting. Though I seem to have a hard time keeping track of when you update the stories I am following. LOL
Spoiler:
Ah a start with a supernatural, but with you It'd be strange to see a normal founder.
Love your little farmhouse. The barn looks particularly cute.
So you limited yourself to one child eh? And then had a daughter...how typical right?
Well I guess we'll see if there is a loophole soon enough...

Spoiler:
Yeah...limited to one kid...:shifty: *cough* I figured if I declared it to be a Patriarchy then I'd get nothing but girls even with the apple gender influences. I love the barn and silo,it wasn't quite the way I had envisioned it but it's close enough. So as for the heirs, first born whether a boy or girl is the heir, it's in the EPIC rules (which hasn't been updated in a while) since I have all the EP's except Pets so I have no idea what the rules say about Island Paradise or Into The Future. I don't think a bike would fit this early in the challenge so I opted for the broomstick instead, I just have to make it their preferred vehicle and they'll take it every time so it makes up for the lack of horses, because it's not a car! :#1: And I don't have THAT many challenges...*looks at siggy* Okay, maaybe I do...

Shame they have to send their child away, but I guess the law is the law. At least, it's an art school so he can do what he wants.
Loved the fact you actually let your sims travel in this, as in the rules I've seen travel to other lands is forbidden completely. (Which I agree is silly)
Loved him catching the dragon fish...and yeah I like Simina the best of the three travel locations in Sims 3. It's just so pretty and I like learning the martial arts and I don't know I've at least gotten through some of the temples there.
I hate France as I can not seem to get through any of the quests. LOL

Spoiler:
Yes, I wanted to keep Ipicles, I love him. But you know, rules and plot. Can't ever seem to shake the plotz. Yes, travel is possible if you set up an alternative to flying. I like China because it fits the era and has no cars, like Egypt. Although the rules have not been updated for any EP's past Generations, so anything after that is basically up to interpretation. I get through the tombs in France quite well, just can never seem to spawn the last one (the nectary mega tomb) which needs all three locations as part of one quest. And I never seem to get more than 11 of the 13 tomb sigils in Egypt. I never get the last two. But by then the travel locations stop being good and working right, they suffer from endless loading screens and give Overwatch a heart attack.

Nice updates Ani-mei. A ghost eh? *snort*
Spoiler:
Guess it'll be interesting to see how that talk goes huh? Uh you are making me want to boot Sims 3 up again.
Although I really need to get back to that RKC too...I'll be glad when summer arrives and I have more free time again.
Wants pictures of the renovated house....LOL

Spoiler:
I always forget to do the tour shots of the house.:fisty: Although I may have added too many rooms...so far there have been only 10 in the house so far and I made 12 rooms. I'll have to "remove" some walls to make it 10 rooms again so no worries. Anyway, I have to catch up the writing because generation 5 has been born in game and I haven't even started generation 3's chapters yet.

New chappie and next time there WILL BE a house tour, simply because I don't have enough pictures to make a third chapter for Li Sung...I play more than I take pics.

I just caught up with this. It's such a good read, Ani-Mei! I like your style!

Spoiler:
Heheh, the hypocrisy makes me laugh. Ah, well, it's a very realistic and human thing, isn't it?

Spoiler:
Yeah it was the age of hypocrisy for sure. I will be playing tonight because it's cooled off enough here so I can play without sweating my ass off. I have a house tour to do as well. Anywho, thanks for stopping in.

All caught up.

Great family! I wish I could keep each generation to three chapters, but it never happens.

Spoiler:
I try to be less plotty and more observational with my generations. Having only three chapters per generation helps with that. Plot just seems to bog me down and make me lose focus to continue sometimes. Some readers prefer shorter generations, others longer ones I guess it depends on how you want to play. Thanks for reading though, it means a lot. :hug:
