[gaming] Sims 3 ISBI Legacy: The Chaos Legacy 2.2

Previously on the Chaos legacy: Abby and Stiles had their first baby, a boy named Brandon, and after a far too long babyhood and toddlerdom, he became a child. Then they had their second (and last) baby, a girl named Babs, and the heir race truly began.

[gaming] Sims 3 ISBI Legacy: The Chaos Legacy 2.1

Previously on the Chaos Legacy: Abby and Stiles got right to work producing potential heirs, and continued to be unbelievably competent, autonomously cleaning and cooking and using the toilet and taking themselves to bed when they are tired. GOOD GRIEF, PEOPLE, THIS IS AN ISBI, RIGHT?! The update ended with baby Brandon’s birth, and that’s where we’ll pick up.

(Note: I have the baby and toddler stages set to the minimum of two days, because I hate babies and toddlers.)

[gaming] Sims 3 ISBI Legacy: The Chaos Legacy 1.3

Previously on the Chaos Legacy: Abby took a trip to the beach to cheer herself up after that whole fiasco with Xander There’s-a-Poison-Apple-with-Your-Name-On-It Clavell, where she met Stiles McGraw. They took a shine to each other, so after she continued with her autonomous cleaning and skilling for awhile, they ended up dating, getting engaged, and getting married. Now Abby’s feeling a little weird, and I’m hoping pregnancy is looming for them.

[gaming] Sims 3 ISBI Legacy: The Chaos Legacy 1.2

Still cross-posting earlier gaming posts from where they were originally posted on Livejournal. (I want them here, too, as a backup. I’ll be moving the images over here, too, in time.)

cover 1.2

Previously on the Chaos Legacy: Abby Chaos is a witch obsessed with cleanliness and solitude, working her way up the medical career and trying to be a little more logical each day. She had a whirlwind romance with Xander Harris Clavell, but his fear of commitment broke her heart. Beware crossing a witch, Xander. There’s a poison apple with your name on it.

[gaming] Sims 3 ISBI Legacy: The Chaos Legacy 1.1

I’m going to start cross-posting my game writing, so I’ll be copying the first few posts here over the next week or two. There may be some broken links; I’m still transferring images to a new host, because I’ve been having issues with the original.

Chaos Legacy cover

Opening: I’ve been playing Sims regularly for years, at least since Sims 2 was first released, but I’ve never actually tried to write up anything before, mostly because I am a super impatient player. I don’t use hacks or custom content, I don’t take pictures, I don’t do anything but play and sometimes text my BFF with ridiculous things my Sims have done. (One time, a horse walked through a wall, got stuck in the house, and I had to destroy half the side to get it back out again. BFF got plenty of texts after that.) (Also, one time a werewolf and a fairy had babies, and I wanted them to be Fair Wolves.) (Didn’t happen.)

But I’ve been reading alittlestrange’s and thestalkysims’ legacies, and they’ve inspired me to give it a try myself. I’m doing an ISBI challenge for this legacy, because I have plenty of other games where I play all the Sims, but I don’t think I’ve ever continued playing an ISBI legacy past the first or second generation. Too impatient. We’ll see how this goes.

I’m even more grateful for all the entertainment I’ve experienced reading legacies, because it is a ton of work. I thought it would be a lot of work, but it is even more than I ever expected. My hat’s off to all the people who do this regularly, and all the joy they bring their readers.

Note: I play on a laptop, and don’t have an external mouse, so my angle control is spotty, which definitely shows up in the photos. I don’t have custom content (though, as you’ll see, there are some hacks that I’m considering), and I play with the walls partially down most of the time. This is my first time trying to take Sim photos. It’s a struggle. Also, I cuss quite a bit, though I’ve toned it down in my writing.

You could say I’m tempting fate by calling this the Chaos Legacy. In fact, I am intentionally tempting fate. Bring on the chaos!

(Spoiler: Part one has very little chaos, alas.)

More than 100 pictures and nearly 4000 words in this first part. Let’s do this.
