FAQ

Q. Who's Elder, and what's this all about?

A. Elderberry Wolff is the fifth generation spare from @FloorRaisin 's Wolff Legacy. When he came to visit Young Cathy Tea and the Houseful of Hippies during Plum Day, he and Cathy fell in love. It seemed an impossible love at first, for Elder was a teen and Young CT was a young adult. After Plum Day, Elder went home, then his sister Ede helped him to age up early so he could attend @aroseinbloom 's Desert Leaders. When Desert Leaders went on hiatus, Elder came to join Young CT in Hippieville, and that's how Freezer Bunny Wolff Tea came to be!

Q. How do you want this played? Should Elder be a desperate father, or is this light-hearted, or what?

A. You can trust Elder. In my game, he's been mostly autonomous. (I play the Hippies pretty much like a modified ISBI.) So just pop him in your game, and let him be! Please don't use any emotional cheats on him (best if no cheats are used on him at all), and, for the most part, just let him be as autonomous as works with your style of game-play. He's an awesome Sim, and he'll let you know what's going on and how he's interpreting what's happening.

He's pretty psychically aware, so if he's not freaking out, it probably means that he senses on some level that everything's working out ok and he's enjoying the adventure and understanding that Free is enjoying his own adventure, too. Amina Wolff is Elder's niece--and a young adult--and Emelia is some kind of Time-Lord, so with such good companions, there's not a ton to worry about except for the vagaries of Time, Space, and the Game.

Q. Is Elder game-aware?

A. Yes. He, Young CT, Free, and Emelia are all game-aware. It's no big deal to them--just part of their digital lives.

Q. What are you talking about, game-aware?

A. Check out the Simposium for Game-Aware Sims (S-GAS) for more.

    Oh no, i gotta help! I still need to post two episodes to catch up with my story, but the next thing i'm doing in my game is helping Elder.
    I let you know as soon as i find something!

    If I can find a way to include it in to my story (they did just land on earth after all) I'll give it a whirl.

    I'm a bit ahead of my story playing-wise, but I'll pop him in my game, hopefully it will still be relevant by the time I meet him :) Although naturally I do hope that he finds the missing family members as soon as possible!
  • Anemone7Anemone7 Posts: 3,951 Member
    Would it be ok to make the episode in a more light-hearted manner or do you want this to be really about searching and a father being desperate? I would want to bring my character's personality into the mix and she´just has a certain way of acting around man...

    But... This would mean Elder would be in my game....faints.

    Hahahahaa, OMG such a cute idea. I think I may need to put Elder in one of my LP's and see if we can help him. ;)

    Don't even know what this is about because in so far behind. And probably won't get to include it in my story, but I love it!

    When I get back from vacation, I'm definitely going to get Henry David to team up with Elder in the search (and maybe some others will join them).

    Okay, Elder came by the orphanage.

    I added the tag #wheresfree but I really don't know if I did it right. I hope it pops up.

    Well, it might be still going on when you get back! Plus, Time/Space... you know!

    That would be great! Elder is an amazing Sim!

    Hiya, Marcellala! This should totally be light-hearted! If you check out the back-stories, you'll see it's all pretty light-hearted, tongue-in-cheek, playful and innocent. Plus, Elderberry Wolff is a pretty happy guy. He's always walking around with a smirk and a smile, so... I don't think he CAN act desperate! :) I'll post links to his backstory, too, so that people know who he is...

    We're not really worried about time continuity, because, you know... time-space thingy! I figure wouldn't it be funny if years from now we see Elders popping up looking for Free even after he's been found ages ago? LOL!

    Super cool! And the adventure that Em/Free/Amina are on is pretty out there--so it's ok if they're not even on earth! Elder's a sort of space-oriented Geek, so he'd love an excuse to head out to space!

    For all we know, this took place after he's been looking for days and days and is starting to get concerned. (Time being relative and all that). Even the most happy-go-lucky guy will be anxious after days of looking without finding his son.

    Oooh - I just thought of an awkward place Elder could end up. I can work on that tonight. Plus I needed to play that save anyway.

    I'd love to have him visit Amelia, but that would break the challenge as much as she'd love a ship to pass by, even if it was just for a moment.

    Maybe a computer chat?

    man--all these awesome Sims! We need to have an Awesome SimPosium! Ooo! Mind-blown! I would love for Sugar to meet @JordanNicoleJJ 's Bliss, and for Henrietta to meet Amelia!

    Maybe this fall, we can have a conference/party/gathering/camp/spa/retreat for Sims from challenges! That would be so fun!

    EDIT: Oh! I just thought of Shelby! That's an awkward place! :open_mouth:

    LOL! I guess Shelby *is* currently my heir, being the first born ... thing... from the heir in this generation.

    EDIT: I'm trying to decide if we need a third of those monsters, they kind of scare me, but Bane likes them. The awkward place was in my sidelines since I want Cocoa to start experimenting with different dimensions anyway.

    @marcellala I used the "snipper tool" on my laptop and took a picture of the Missing poster Cathytea has on the first page of this thread. Then, I used Paint and edited the poster into a game screen shot. :) I'm still a beginner so I used beginner tools.
