Comic Summer: Post 3.12

Post 3.11 | Rules | Family Tree | Post 3.13

Well it’s been quite the break for me again, so it is time to get this post out there and to give you the results of the final heir poll so you know who is taking over the final few updates of this challenge. So, let’s first get to the results.

So just who became heir?

Was it Oryx…


Or perhaps Oriole…


Maybe Pine…


Or was it Nerine…


Could it be Nyala…


The heir is…

Oriole Comic!!

Congrats to Oriole, who was a no-brainier favorite. This vote wasn’t even really close and I will show you the table in a second. That mean we will end this challenge with a male heir and Oriole will have the final “challenges” to complete.

This is the table of results. Oryx had gotten no votes, and since it was clear who was going to win, I threw him a vote just for fun. I was really torn between wanting one of the girls or Oriole so I’m super happy with this choice.

Generation Two Requirements

  • IL: Complete a Nature aspiration
  • JA: Go to Selvadorada to find a spouse
  • JA: Build a relic and use it on someone outside of the family
  • RoM: Become a spellcaster
  • RoM: Have a child with Ancient Bloodline
  • FS: Write a Non-Fiction novel
  • FS: Take pictures of all the kids and spouse

  • IL: Keep Sulani clean (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Buried Treasure collection (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Seashell collection (ongoing)
  • JA: Complete Ancient Artifact collection (ongoing)
  • RoM: Win a duel against all 3 sages (ongoing)

  • Have 3 pregnancies each generation (9 of 9)
  • Workaholics (9 of 10 careers topped)
  • Tricks of the Trade (39 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspiration Family (26 of 27 base game aspirations completed)
  • Aspirational Family (goal) (31 of 30 aspirations competed)

So, we are down to needing pictures taken this generation and then the final few things from Rye (career, skill, and aspiration.) We will have a handful of things for Oriole to do when he’s a YA, but for now let’s see how far we get.

We start with working on badges with Oryx. He didn’t get the young scientist badge as a child, so it’s time to focus on the last badges in his teen years.

Analisa works on teaching Nerine either to say sorry or to say thank you. I can’t remember which, but she is such a god mom.

Rye finally maxes out the career for Engineering. I had too look up if it went beyond 10, but from what I can see it doesn’t, and it mentions in the description that we’ve reached the pinnacle, so I’m marking it off.

Analisa can now go into Full Parent mode. A mode I will likely never use again, but she needed to reach it once for the Super Parent aspiration, and so we did.

Multi-tasking parenting, as I believe Oryx was asking for advise, while eating and mom was trying to get the twins to sleep. It’s almost their birthday and I am so ready to not have toddlers anymore.

Our first of many family updates to come. Ivy grows too a child, Wasp too a toddler, and Hope and Reed welcome a little boy named Cotton.

We then get to say, Happy HarvestFest from the Comic’s. It’s a busy day with the twins taking care of the younger twins, cooking of the grand meal, eating of the grand meal and poor Basil getting surrounded by gnomes.

We also have finally maxed out the final skill for this challenge. Rye only needs to finish up the aspiration and we will have completed all of our Super Mini-Challenges. I did not think we were going to make it there for a bit!

Cake pictures means it’s time for the girls to grow into children. Their brother Pine is there too cheer them on while daddy Rye helps them blow out the candles.

It maybe not be the blow outs the family have had in the past, but the kids all sit down to play a video game together to celebrate no more toddlers in the house! It’s a fun day.

Here are the girls after make-overs. Nyala is first, in the yellow with the longer hair. She got Mean as her first trait. Nerine is in the pink and she got Goofball for her first. Both girls got Top-Notch Toddler and Nyala is going for artistic prodigy while Nerine is going for Social Butterfly.

We have additional birthdays happening in the rest of the family too. Birch and Bay are Orca’s sons, and they are adults, Glen is Wade’s son and he’s an YA and so is Lavender’s son Hawk, and finally Oak, who is Bay’s youngest is a child.

All of the current generation all together and most of them even sitting at the same time. It’s a rare occasion. Looks like some homework, eating, socializing, and cleaning are all taking place.

Since we needed outdoor adventure badge points the kids all went to Windenburg to fish. None of them finish this trip, but it’s done before too much longer within the next day or so.

It’s time to get the boys pictures up on the family scrapbook walls so pictures are taken. The final kids will get their pictures taken when they become teens themselves.

So both boys have the Purveyor of Potions aspiration, if you didn’t remember that, which I really didn’t, and so that requires a trip to the magical realm. While there the boys, and Rye, searched for tomes they don’t already have at home, bought some supplies, and practiced potion making.

Back at home all of the kids come home from a scouts meeting and start to write in their journals. They are all fairly stressed out and tense kids for some reason, so we spend a lot of time journaling.

Another evening and that means another set of family updates as well. We have Jay having a baby with his wife, Cyprus (Wade’s oldest) and Glen (Wade’s second oldest) are also having kids, and Cotton, Reed’s son is now a cute toddler!

It is obviously a Monday as it’s school project day so all the kids work outside to finish their projects while enjoying the evening on the island. It really is pretty on this island.

It’s also now time for Rye to become an elder. Hard to believe it’s already time for him to be “old” now. We still need to finish up the aspiration, but Rye has done really well as the final father of this challenge.

As we get ready to end this particular update, which I knew I was hoping to get all the way through the teen years, feels like a better place to stop, we have a final set of family updates. Kellie, Misty, and Reed all grow into elders as well. Lark, Barley, and Blade are all now children. I suggest looking at the Family Tree link below if you want more info.

We don’t have a ton of people to look at from the extended family this time, but let’s go through it. First up we have Keira Ishikawa who is Cyprus’ baby mama. Cyprus is Orca’s grandson. Next is Cherish Rock, who is Glen’s baby mama. Glen is Cyprus’ brother. Finally on the top we have Lake, who is Petunia’s oldest. Shane Perez is the first on the bottom row, and he is Rose’s new husband. Then we have 3 kids. First is Ivy and then her half brother Oak, Bay’s youngest two, and then Wasp, Jay’s son.

All right that is going to be all we do for now. Thanks for joining me and we will be through this challenge soon I think and I just need to get it blogged.

I have been playing sims since TS1 and even played a little bit of the PS2 version and the mobile versions over time. Once I discovered challenges for TS2 I never looked back. I love the sims, the families I've been able to make, and play through the years and connecting with people about them. I work from home doing Salesforce Data Validation for my company, have 2 cats I adore and have a million hobbies I feel like I will never have time to completely explore.
