We are FINALLY back to EPIC Tripp! I’m so happy to be back to playing a little more frequently and actually have some updates to share with you. I don’t know that it will stay this consistent, but I hope you enjoy the updates as I manage to get them to you. Now, it has been a really long time since we had an update, so let’s look at our goals.
Generation 6b – It’s Just Business
Heir(ess) must join Business or Political career. Spouse may enter the job the heir does not choose, or any previously unlocked position.
- Once heir reaches level 10 of chosen career, computers, tablets, and video game consoles are able to be purchased and used.
So really the part we have left is to get Bonnie through her business career. When we left last update Bonnie was almost halfway through the business career, so we have some work to do, but are well on our way to meeting our goals soon enough. So let’s go check in with the family.
We start with seeing Miranda and Abby enjoying each other’s company on the couch. In their older years, these two have gotten closer. Their marriage may not have started out as a great love affair, but they have grown to love each other and their lives very much.
Patchy is still around and he really enjoys going over and playing with Cornelius. This is probably one of my most successfully cared for cowplants. This family really seems to like their cow plant, even though they occasionally get themselves eaten.
You may or may not remember that Bonnie is very pregnant with her first child. Rene is very excited to meet his son or daughter and takes time to talk to the baby. Bonnie loves her husband but is very ready to be done with being pregnant. I have not influenced this pregnancy because they have unlocked the ability to have multiple kids. You may remember, Bonnie was the second child for Abby and Miranda.
Speaking of the first born Tripp of the last generation, Frank comes by for a visit and sits down to chat with his mom Abby. Abby is always happy to see her son, and I really do want to go to his house again at some point and let Bonnie and Rene get to know his kid and step-son.
That evening we have a couple of ghosts visiting, as has really become common. This family has been around for, let’s see, this is the 6th generation, and so there are plenty of ghosts in our garden to come out and haunt us. Tonight is Lindsey and her mom Belle, generations 2 and 3.
Remington the cat is still here, and he closely watches Bonnie work on authenticating a statue found in the jungle. Bonnie’s aspiration is to be an archeology scholar, and she is still needing to find/authenticate items. Luckily between her great-grandma Lindsey’s time being an archeologist and her grandma Lara also visiting multiple times, she’s got plenty of items to still go through.
Bonnie is needing more logic for work so she plays a lot of chess. Usually, Miranda will play with her, but on this day she managed to get Abby to sit down for a bit and play. Bonnie is close to having another promotion, which will be great.
Knowing that Abby and Miranda were not going to be around for forever as full members of the family I decided it was time to take another trip to Frank’s home. As soon as we arrived his little daughter Ruth was outside with her mom. Bonnie and Rene both took time to talk with her and start making friends. Perhaps their kids will play together someday.
Upstairs we find Frank’s step-son, Malakai, playing chess. He has grown up into a handsome young man. He got to know most of the family as a young boy, although Rene was not yet a part of the family.
Bonnie was taking care of Ruth for a bit and then went to sit and talk with Frank. Right at that moment, Abby got up to say goodbye to the world. Most of the family just kept talking, but one of the other members of the household walked in and saw Abby on the floor. Then everyone was very upset and Grim came to bring Abby to the other side.
Miranda made sure Abby was placed in the garden at home and strengthened her connection to the world. She knew she would join her before too much longer, so while she was sad, she had lived in this house with its ghosts for years and knew she would see Abby again.
Abby then managed to max out her Charisma. I cannot remember for sure how she did that, or if it was for a purpose, but it was probably for her Master Actress aspiration.
Apparently we had slacked for a little bit on feeding Cornelius as Rene got drawn in by the cake. Luckily Cornelius spit him back out, but Rene was very drained after the encounter. Rene is doing really well with his job though and spends a lot of time in the garden, so I guess it was bound to happen.
Then in the morning, Bonnie woke up with labor pains. It was finally time to meet the newest Tripp. Babies are still going to be born at home around here, and luckily we have the bassinet already, so Bonnie went over to give birth to the next generation.
Then it was SURPRISE time for me. Bonnie was carrying twins this whole time! Not only did she give birth to twins, but twin boys….which means she will be sure to have another baby so we can continue with the matriarchy. For now, meet Bill and Steve Tripp.
Bill is named for Bill Gates and Steve for Steve Jobs, both very successful businessmen.
For now, that is going to be where we end the update. Abby managed to max out 6 skills in her lifetime and she completed 4 aspirations and got 4 additional raises beyond level 10 of her job as The Boss. I’m sure we will be seeing her again, but she will be missed. I hope you enjoyed the update and we will see you next time.
