I'm SkellySpades and this is not my first legacy challenge. I had posted two before in the Sims 2 game with heavy narration and dialogue. I think this time around I am going to go for more of a "documentary" approach. Just stating observations and talking about what will happen during my gameplay. A little more "cut-to-the-chase" for those who prefer a more direct story-telling style.
My McPerson Legacy founder is actually created in the image of a person I know in real life (not me, I've done that before haha). During the beginning of this challenge, I sat with the Real Life Inspiration (RLI) for this character through his creating in CAS, choosing of aspirations and traits, right down to choosing the right girl to start a family with.
Once that is on a roll, the rest of the generations will be up to my gameplay!!
First, lets start with my succession laws, chosen in real life by the RLI.
- Gender Law: Equality - Both boys and girls are eligible for the title of heir.
- Bloodline Law: Strict Traditional - must be naturally born from their previous-generation parents and be able to trace an unbroken bloodline back to the founder
- Heir Law: Exemplar - At the beginning of the challenge, name a single trait. This trait must be one of your founder’s three traits. Any eligible heir that has this trait will gain the title of heir. If a single generation has no children with this trait or more than one exemplar, follow the First Born rule.
The trait chosen is Art Lover.
Meet Jimmy McPerson.
Jimmy is an odd sim. His aspiration is to enjoy a harmonic life with a big happy family.
He's a loner, and he typically hates children. Jimmy appreciates art, especially of the musical variety. He is a slightly socially awkward, sensitive yet silly sim.
When we started this challenge, Jimmy couldn't even afford walls. Probably for the best, as he doesn't really need much.
His Loner trait also comes in handy at the start of our challenge. Without the dying need to be around people, Jimmy spent some time going to work and building skills.
