    Alphonso embarks on the hunt DNT0H9N.png
    Dr. Lopez tracks the prey i3lYYcM.png

    Dr. Lopez-Belmonte, a tenured professor at the esteemed Britechester University, has been teaching college alumni for decades. An expert in Omiscan history and occult studies, he’s known as the “bonehound” by his colleagues, for his inhuman knack for finding artifacts and archeological dig sites deep in the remote jungles of his native Selvadorada. When he’s asked his secret for finding artifacts, he always answers “That’s for me to know and you to find out” with a wink and a smile. Needless to say, he’s a bit of a heart throb with the female student body.

    As for Alphonso’s secret knack? Well, you can guess that one! He’s a werewolf! They can sniff out anything. But Alphonso has another, darker secret. He is descended from a long line of vampire hunters. He has dedicated his life to ridding the world of the vampiric scourge, and has become an expert in vampire lore, as well as everything occult. The only thing that remains vague to him is the script and lore of the Spellcasters, which remains obscured to all but the magically inclined. Alphonso is the last of his line, with no family remaining, he seeks others who hunt the same. Will the Lunar Lycans accept him, allowing him to join their creed?
    If not, no matter. Alphonso will continue on his solitary quest despite all. The Lone Wolf Walks the Path Alone.

    Dr. Alphonzo Lopez-Belmonte Stats
    I created Alphonso as my game’s vampire hunter awhile ago. I love this dude, I named him after a werewolf character from a French medieval ballad written in the 1200s, "Guillaume de Palerme" (or William and the Werewolf in the English translation)
    . In the story, Alfonso was a Spanish prince that was cursed to live as a werewolf by his evil stepmother, but protected some teens that the bad guy in the story was trying to kill. He was turned back into a human as a reward at the end of the story. Lopez means “of the wolf” in Spanish. And Belmonte is a reference to the vampire hunting family from the CastleVanyia series of course. I’ve been actively playing him for like 2 months so he has quite a few skills. He has the Self-Assured, Genius, and Adventurous traits. He’s mastered the archeological skill and completed both archeology aspirations in-game (nearly died too after failing a few traps! lol). He can give archeological seminar speeches to other sims, and receives artifacts from the Simsonian Museum to authenticate in the mail. That way you don’t have to send him to Selvadorada for him to work as an archeologist and make extra income. He’s worked in the military career, and is now a Dean level professor. I did cheat to give him max vampire lore awhile ago, he can craft the vampire cure. If he has the cure in his inventory, an option to “slay vampire” will come up under the mean interactions category with any vampire. They can fight, and if he wins, he will throw the cure in the vampire’s face, curing them of the vampire scourge. He has the player trait, but now has the soulmate aspiration.

    Alphonzo is an apex werewolf that finished the Lone Wolf aspiration. He’s also immortal, he’s an adult with some age showing (graying hair and some eye wrinkles). He’s quite old in my head cannon, well over a century. He has the survival instinct and prideful wolf temperaments. So his fury builds when he’s angry, uncomfortable or scared. But he also has the mark of the night and the wolf (or something like that) which helps lower fury gain. He can track, scavenge, and hunt. Al is a lot of fun to play!

    Here’s his wardrobe:
    He wears the same in his werewolf form. He’s a werewolf, but a snazzy dresser.

    💜 70th WEEK CHALLENGE! 💜

    Let's all be thankful together and share the spirit of giving!

    Your Challenge:

    Create a household that demonstrates the meaning of giving. Giving back, giving thanks, giving love, giving support, giving a listening ear, giving a gift, giving your time by volunteering .. simply put, giving is the message and the spirit I want us all to be feeling as we create for this challenge!

    Directions:

    Create 1-4 sims, pets ok, that represent in some way the meaning of giving to you. Be inspired by your real life experiences whether you were on the giving or receiving end of generosity. Ask yourself things like, what or who are you thankful for? What was the most meaningful gift you've given or received? Or, find creative ideas straight from the game. You can tell a story of Harvestfest & how your sims enjoyed this holiday.

    In addition, to up the challenge factor, consider giving the "volunteer" travel option in game a try. If you have never once experienced this gameplay feature, now's your time! Just click the phone with your teen or adult sim, select travel & you should see the "volunteer" option.

    I'm mostly thankful for my family so I think I'm going to base some sims after them and I can't believe I've never made an account for the forums until now.

    Challenge within the challenge: Take your sims in game and go on one of the in game volunteer experiences.
    The thing I love about this challenge is it actually encourages to find a gameplay style for created sims. This way, your sim becomes more of a character, than a sim. As someone who love storytelling, I had lots of fun (and cried a bit while batfish hunting but other than that had fun)

    I didnt go typical volunteering activities because none of these well suited to my character. (Im going to create a character whos suited to fight diseases tho). Instead, I peaked Paranormal Investigator Career and worked for free. I had to rewrite set money cheat to give money back after each work day to make it "volunterily work" since I dont know how to code it. :/
    Most of my time I focused on finishing Mother Plant Resurrection Aspiration, which I tried first time. Now, Selina is someone who able to resurrect ghosts without need of Ambrosia. She only use this power on accidently dead sims who passed away before their time though. No matter how giving you are, nature have a balance and resurrecting those whose time has come would upset the balance.

    Impressive @CordeliaBeaufort i didn’t even know that was a thing in the game. My family are much more low-key, life guarding, beach cleaning, feeding strays, nothing life and death. They are doing odd jobs and she his doing two classes at a time. The kid got an A and I hope to have time to work on her character values as well. I’ve never had a Sim get a bio degree then buy a vet clinic, I don’t know if there will be any advantage.

    I added my mom, grandpa, and my young simself together and they went on the walk to fight disease. I picked that one for them to volunteer to because my grandpa passed away from lung cancer and I hope that someday a cure will be made. I couldn't get a picture of it saying they went volunteering but I got this cute picture of my young simself and my grandpa hugging. I tried to get my mom in the picture too but her simself was too busy knocking over a trash can I guess the walk made her mad?

    💜71st WEEK CHALLENGE! 💜

    Tis the season for holly jolly merriment and cheer .. oh and don’t forget about the cute reindeer ;) This special theme event is a holiday collaboration with Planet Sims Discord, @Minraed and me!

    Creative Direction & Rules:

    Enjoying all the hustle and bustle of happy holiday events is something I’m very much looking forward to .. if this sounds like you too then here’s what we'd love for you to do. Be inspired by the energy of the holidays by creating themed rooms, sims and builds according to what your interpretation of the following 5 themes! Please connect each of your creations together if you are inspired to make all three categories. For example, if you make a room, please make the sims that would be found in that space as well as the build that incorporates that room inside of it.

    Your Challenge:

    ⭐ Let the following themes be your guide as you create some Holiday magic in Build and/or CAS for sims indoors or outside ⭐

    Creative Themes:

    Holiday Party
    Holiday Shopping
    Holiday Toys
    Holiday Petting Zoo/Maze
    Holiday Photo Shoot


    As you create, think about all the sims who might be in one of these rooms and tell the story of what they are doing in your description. Paint the picture of the holiday scene so that all reading will be able to vividly daydream. Date night out on the town? (Holiday Party) A single sim picking out their proposal ring? (Holiday Shopping) Elves in Santa's workshop? (Holiday Toys) Family outing to a tree farm? (Holiday Petting Zoo/Maze) Senior portraits? (Holiday Photo Shoot). Pick the one theme that speaks to you most and challenge yourself to create the sims, the room AND the build they belong in. Remember, the specific things suggested here are just that, suggestions. Let your sim imaginations run free on how you think one of these themes should be.

    For sim household creations, please style your sims to the theme you pick and give them a story about why they've chosen to go to this holiday event. Share their thoughts, feelings, sights and sounds around them.

    For room creations, please build any shaped room you want. Design it according to one of these five themes and make it 12x12 size or less.

    For build creations, you are free to build without limitations on any lot you desire. Please make sure you have your room design somewhere in your overall build. For example, if you created a Holiday Shopping room, you can build the whole shopping mall if you'd like. To help with proper stream placement, please state the lot you used to build and share your entry.

    For more information, visit the "planet-holiday" event channel in our Planet Sims Discord. If you are not yet a member, you're very welcome to join our friendly, supportive group of simmers using this link ...

    Planet Sims

    We also respect the fact that there are many ways people and their sims define “the holidays”. Please feel free to bring the spirit of your treasured celebrations and traditions to this challenge.
