ONE HOUSE. EIGHT SIMS. FULL AUTONOMY. NO DIGNITY.
So you want to be a legacy founder, huh? Enjoy the perks of having your story told? To have a large and successful family? To become rich and famous, while your name lives on in legend? Who knows, maybe you'll even be the next Bob the Zombie, or Plutonium Apocalypso? (You won't be, by the way.) Starring in a legacy is a great responsibility, but a great honor that leads to an even greater life.
But not every sim is cut out to lead a story. Only the smartest, strongest, or most entertaining can succeed. And to decide who has the honor of starting off my next legacy challenge, I've made a game for it.
The rules are simple: eight sims go in, but only one can come out on top. They will live together, spend time together, and perform in challenges together. And you, the reader, can vote every so often to decide who deserves to be cut.
Without further ado, here are the eight sims who will lead this legacy.
Vladislaus Straud IV, 24, is a resident of Forgotten Hollow. A self-described "charming playboy," Vlad has entered the competition to eagerly continue his legacy.
Vlad: "What can I say? I love children. They're very fresh and full of life."
Bella Goth, 32, of Willow Creek, describes herself as a simple woman with extravagant tastes. She's mother of two, but looks young enough to be her own daughter.
Bella: "I love Mortimer, but I need a fresh start in life. You try being in a marriage for 20 years and over four games."
Mrs. Crumplebottom, age unknown, from Downtown. Mrs. Crumplebottom is a feisty old bird who's looking to win the competition.
Mrs. Crumplebottom: "If I win, I can make sure no one else finds love and creates more horrible offspring. I will burn this legacy to the ground with my own two hands!"
This is Dummy Thicc, Age 20, of Oasis Springs. Unemployed, has no family or skills, and doesn't believe in money. Her traits are Active, Kleptomaniac, and Clumsy. Her Lifetime Want is Successful Lineage.
Dummy: "I want to be an artist, but I also want to have a family. I feel like I'd be a great parent."
Dela Ostrow, 16-25, joins us from the Gallery. As a kid, Dela lived all over the world, shadowing her mum—a globally sought-after fashion photographer. That experience gave Dela an inherent sense of optimism and a deep entrepreneurial spirit. She recently launched her first fashion line, and her unique pieces and global style is starting to get press. Her girlfriend Mia—a designer in her own right—helps keep her informed of trends outside the fashion industry.
Dela: "I just want to endear myself to the fanbase. After everyone figured out that I use Photoshop to enhance my looks in photos, people just call me ugly and pass me up. But I think I have a lot to offer, if you'll let me into your hearts."
Here's a sim who needs no introduction: Don Lothario, 26, of Oasis Springs is here to get down and get lucky. But why would a non-committal sim want to settle down and start a family?
Don: "I just marry someone, WooHoo as much as I can, and have nannies take care of the kids while I live in luxury. But maybe we can do a 100 Baby Challenge instead of a legacy? I think I'd be good at that."
"... Why does it smell in here?"
Nancy Landgraab, 42, also joins us from Oasis Springs. She's a married mother of one, a highly successful business woman, and never does anything illegal. We asked her why she wanted to be here, but she didn't say anything. But since we needed 8 sims, she's in.
This is Pedro Bear. Age unknown, location unknown, job and skills unknown, face unknown. His entire look is unknown, because I randomized everything about him except the suit. So he's a mystery even to me.
In the next update, the house will go through an obstacle course. I already went ahead and played this, and it was a total disaster.
