Welcome to the official forum thread for Sim Stories: Hijinks from the World of Sims 3, a collection of tales using worlds, characters, and situations from Sims 3.

Currently Sim Stories features one ongoing story, The Cat Chronicles, as well as any Short Stories I might write for the Monthly Simlits Short Stories Challenges thread or other events.

The Cat Chronicles follows the adventures of Shadow, as he struggles to catch birds, gets in fights with canines, searches for new comfy places, trains his wrinkly two-legger Rose in proper kitty-owner etiquette, and does all manner of other activities considered “cute” and “feline.” A simple slice-of-life series told from the viewpoint of a cat, it is recommended to cat-lovers or anyone that likes a “dessert read”; sweet, but not particularly filling.
