Is it just me, or is SimShinkansen always standing around like his knees are about to give out?

What exactly is Gloa doing there? Talking to himself about how he doesn't like dancing while LT talks to Luna about Gloa, through the wall ?

Gloa is making faces at himself in the mirror, because he is Childish, and he had had a really bad day (as well as all the problems with the house, he had gone to work without taking a shower, and when he finally got home, reeking and unhappy, Lostthyme walked in on him when he was showering), so it was cheering him up. Lostthyme was yelling at me that she couldn't get to the sink because Gloa was in the way. Luna was just staring at the puddle and broken sink in horror.

can't you just sell the broken stuff and buy new stuff...oh wait I might have used a cheat for that XD

Yep you can (or just even replace it for money). That costs money, though, and doesn't improve handiness (and it costs more money than a repair man).

Oh, why not another short update?
Day 4: In Search of Evil

Posted Image
Our heroes rested, basked in blissful dreams that had nothing to do with the horrors of the last day. Well, that would be true if our heroes were only limited to Nyrunia and Shinkansen.


Nyrunia: You know what? I'm leaving this crazy place. There's got to be some better place around here. Maybe with those new neighbors that came in? I'll visit that big group right across the street.

--
Some minutes later!
Posted Image
Meet: THE SHINKANSEN FAMILY

Nyrunia: So, uh, where do you guys sleep here? There doesn't seem to be much room.

Stasi Shinkansen: The couches. The ground if we don't get to the couches before the others.

Nyrunia: :eyebrow: Okay, that sounds pretty unpleasant.

St. Peter Shinkansen: Yes, indeed. You see, we all had differing ideas about what we had to build here, so in the end we ran out of cash before we began working on the whole house concept.

Nyrunia: Uh huh. Well, you do have a nice pool, at least. And nice gates. Well, I guess I could live with that. I mean, none of you are cops/totally not superheroes in disguise, or anything else which would be against any criminal behavior, right?

Stasi Shinkansen: I'm a cop.

St Peter Shinkansen: I'm sort of against things like being evil and all that. You know, just a little.

Baby Shinkansen: Imma baby! :P

Nyrunia: Uh...

Posted Image

Unpacking Things Shinkansen: Oh, by the way, watch your step.

Nyrunia: :P Okay, I think I'm leaving now. Bye guys!

--
Later!

Nyrunia: Hello, neighbor, how are you?

Saavedro: Well, I've seen better days. (they took everything I had! Well, except for my fortune)

Nyrunia: Okay. Uh...

Saavedro: Uh... want to play foosball?
Posted Image
Epiiiiic.


--
Later still!

Saavedro: It's very nice of you to listen to my troubles, Nyrunia.

Nyrunia: Oh, it's nothing. But please continue.

Saavedro So they burned their Myst linking books in front of me...

Nyrunia: Burn! I like fire.

Saavedro: :tomato:

Nyrunia: I like burning things too!

Saavedro: :P

Posted Image

Nyrunia: Burn, fire, burn! They sound like cool guys!

Saavedro: Okay, out you go!

Nyrunia: Aw. Well, I guess I'll keep the group at home from bewailing my disappearance for longer.
-
Meanwhile!

Lostthyme: Hey, did you seen Nyrunia anytime today?

Gloa: No, you?

Lostthyme: No.

Gloa :...

Lostthyme: ...

[b]Gloa
: Know a good pellet recipe off the top of your head?

[b]Lostthyme
: Dunno.

I've gotta say, Saavedro has a very nice house.

And Foosball. :eyebrow:

Meet: THE SHINKANSEN FAMILY

So, we've got:
-Henrich Himmler haircut, green rainboots, and football jersey: Staasi-Shinkansen
-Blonde and white shirt: St. Peter-Shinkansen
-Blue shirt, cornrows, and floor-intersection problems: Unpacking-Things-Shinkansen
-Orange clothes and Cho helmet: Baby-Shinkansen
-I'm guessing the black-haired woman in blue/grey is Romantic-Female-Interest-Shinkansen
-Who's the woman in the green shirt and running shoes? Token-Minority-Shinkanen?

You know, for a cheap, clumsy, unromantic, excitable coward, SimShinkansen is pretty obsessed with fantasy creatures. First unicorns, and now dragons.

And he still has 300,000 Simoleons left to spend (and no cheat codes needed :eyebrow: ). In contrast, our entire house cost around 22,000 Simoleons. His house cost about 100,000 Simoleons.

Woman in the green shirt and running shoes is some random neighbor. They seem to always have lots of neighbors over (in comparison, not a single neighbor has visited our house). I've added a Token-Minority-Shinkansen now, though. :tomato:

Okay, guys, now (a couple days forward from the days posted) you all have more than 5000 Lifetime Happiness Point things (you get them by being especially happy at times, and by succeeding at wishes), and most of you have over 10,000. That means you can buy Lifetime rewards. Pick what you want, and I'll 'buy' it for you when you reach the right amount of points. Currently, most of you can buy one 10,000 point one, or two 5000 point ones (I know I'm still below 10000, though, and someone else might be too).

A wormhole has appeared! You peer down into the starry expanse below curiously. Watch it, don't fall in!

ALTERNATE REALITY, SIMS 2 STYLE:

Posted Image

Luna: Gloa, go get the mail.
Gloa: I can't. I'm waiting on a phone call.
Luna: A phone call? We haven't even been here long enough to meet people.
Gloa: A work friend!
Luna: You don't have a job.

Alternate Reality Phone: Ring!
Luna *picking up phone*: "Gloa? No, he's not here."

In summary:

You pull your head back up out of the wormhole. Alternate reality is surprisingly boring.

Yay, wormholes (I had forgotten how complex the interface was then)!

Day 5: The Last of the Mohicans Neighbors (until I added more) D'ni (and timed nicely in days too)

Gloa: Okay, from the list of special neighbors we have currently, we still need to meet one more family.

Nyrunia: Did you hear that, little kid? We still have to make you into meat.

Posted Image
Would you like to be cooked Rare, Medium Rare, Medium, or Well Done?


Gloa: No, not the paperboy. He's a normal NPC. There's this house up in the hills over there, though. Since you seem to be our ambassador, why don't you go greet them?

--
Later!

Phone: Ring!

Lostthyme: Shut up, phone. Hello?

Nyrunia: They're not here. :eyebrow: They have a little sign on their front door saying how they were going on a walk to the park. How will we find them?

Lostthyme: Give me a sec. I'll go visit the park.

--
Later still!

Posted Image
Lostthyme: How do you do, Mr. Dunny?

Gehn: Very fine, neighbor. No time to talk right now, though. I have an odd premonition that my vast estate is being robbed at this moment. I'm afraid we'll have to be leaving now.

Phone: Ring!

Lostthyme: Hello?

Nyrunia: So did you meet the neighbors yet?

Lostthyme: Yes, I did. They seem like very nice people. Had to leave, though. Mr. Dunny had some odd thoughts about robbers in the house.

Nyrunia: Oh, no robbers here. It's a very nice house, though.

Posted Image
Gloa: Nyrunia, I told you to go to the house, not to go into the house with nobody there!


--
Later!

Nyrunia: Luna, why are you always wearing your sleepwear, even when you're painting outside? Isn't that sort of odd?
Posted Image
Luna: And you say this as Shinkansen is in his pajama trunks, playing the guitar in an empty room?


Nyrunia: It is very childish of you.


Day 6: In an otherwise boring day...

Posted Image
This looks strikingly familiar...


Lostthyme: Hey, Gloa, just calling to tell you the computer broke again. Isn't that funny?

Gloa: Uh, that sounds bad. Is it fixable?

Lostthyme: No clue.

Gloa: Well, you're trying to repair it, right?

Lostthyme: No.

Gloa: You're calling a repairman?

Lostthyme: Nope!

Gloa: You're finding a replacement? That bad?

Lostthyme: No, I'm swinging. Wheee!

Posted Image

Gloa: We have a swing now?

Lostthyme: Yep! Also, separate bedrooms for all.

Day 7: Careers
Posted Image
The life of a police officer/undercover superhero trainee is a hard one. You have to be quick. You have to be fast. You have to be ruthless.

Some people think you become a superhero by being specially talented. That's not true.

--
Lostthyme: Luna, why do you have two waffle making cooking boards out?

Posted Image

Luna: That way I can make twice as many waffles in half the time, duh!
--

Some people think it's because you're strong, or attractive, or because you dress funny. That's not true either.

--
Posted Image

Shinkansen: (practicing speech) But our candidate is not like that. That's because we are a brave and practical party...
--

Some people think it is - ech, what? Uh, luna, how long did you leave these in the oven?

Posted Image

Luna: Uh...

Gloa: :tomato:

--
Later!

Being a Political Electorate Assistant in Decision Making Processes is no easy job.

Your long speeches, special calls to the electors, and careful genuine discussions with the uninformed public can be overthrown by the slightest chance of the world.

--
Posted Image
Gloa: Oh yes, I always vote circle party too.

--

You find disinterest, sloth, and apathy for political decision making discussion and conversation across the citizenry.

--
Posted Image
Lostthyme: Waffles again? It's dinner. This is ridiculous.

Gloa: At least they aren't burnt this time.
--

You must say you like what you do not like, and that you do not like what you do like.

--
Posted Image
Luna: I finished my first painting. Isn't it beautiful?

Nyrunia: :eyebrow:

Shinkansen: Uh, uh... of course, uh, I'm sure it will sell for a good price.

Luna: Oh no, not my first painting. Let's put it up on the wall here
--

Your own friends and family despise you...

--
Shinkansen: Uh, can I leave the bathroom now?

Nyrunia: Hand says no, no you can't. You haven't fed her yet.

Posted Image
--

...even attempt to sabotage you.

--
Posted Image

Shinkansen: Can you stop standing in my way?

Nyrunia: Hand doesn't like you, Shinkansen.

--

It is a hard, hard job.

--

Nyrunia: Being a criminal is easy, isn't it?

Hand: Oh yes, yes it is!

No, no it won't be. :eyebrow:
In time, though, you'll learn, and higher level painters have some nice automatic paintings, as well as more abilities to make paintings of people and places.



Day 8: Conspiracies and Telescopes

Shinkansen: Where are you taking me?

Cabdriver: ...

Shinkansen: Who told you to take me somewhere?

Cabdriver: ...

Shinkansen: Are you my long lost brother, Silent Cab Driver Shinkansen?

Cabdriver: ... :tomato: ...

Cornelia: You are a campaign intern in the triangle party, aren't you?

Shinkansen: I prefer to be called an Election Information Strategic Consultant. Also, you have even stranger hair than me, lady.

Cornelia: Well, whatever you are, I think you can do much more in advancing yourself in your career than you are doing. You see, you have a lot of access to information, and control over where it goes. Maybe we can work out a deal.

Shinkansen: Are you asking me in a cliched way to be a traitor to my party?

Cornelia: If you prefer it to be called an Independent Decision and Direction Analyst, then that's fine with me. Circle Party could really help you advance in the ranks if you showed some commitment to it, though.

Shinkansen: Like telling my boss about people trying to sneak peaks at his info?

Cornelia: Well, technically, that would probably also advance you in the ranks. Circle Party will be the winning party soon, though, and could richly continue to reward you. It's just a little accident of ethics before you.

Shinkansen: That's a hard decision. Can you give me a minute to think?

Cornelia: Nope. Choose your side now.

Shinkansen: I-

Bangbangbangbangbangbangbangbang...

Cornelia: (shouting) What is that noise?

Shinkansen: (shouting) Could you turn that sound off? We're trying to have a dramatic sequence of me showing which side I'm on here.

Posted Image
Bangbangbangbangbangbangbangbang!


Lostthyme: Yes, banging a hammer against the fireplace is really helping me figure out this whole repairing business.

Crack!

Lostthyme: Oh look, now it lights itself automatically sometimes.

Luna: That sounds highly unsafe.

Lostthyme: But it's an upgrade!

Nyrunia: Is sushi supposed to be made with chicken?

Gloa: At least she can't burn it.

Nyrunia: No fiiiiiire. :P Also, poor birdies. Isn't there something better to cook? Or rather, to not cook?

Gloa: There's quab.

Lostthyme: Does Ahnonay even exist in this universe?

Gloa: Maybe... wait, I'll check

Posted Image
This might take awhile, guys. Currently all I've found is the Galaxy Tree Branch and the star cluster You Really Should Point the Telescope at the Stars instead


Day 9: An Ordinary Day

Lostthyme: *Yawn* Luna, what's for breakfast?

Luna: Can't help - fixing shower.
Posted Image

Lostthyme: Leftovers, then.

Posted Image
Even Shinkansen's hair looks more muscular :P .


Nyrunia: Can I burn this sushi?

Lostthyme: No, we've already had enough fires here.

--
Only slightly later!
Posted Image
Shinkansen: Of all the times to not have a moat. Aaaaah! I'll go hide in the shower, then. Close enough.

--
Later!
Shinkansen: Is it safe to come out yet? Are any of you left alive?

Nyrunia: No, Hand ate everyone. Yummy. You didn't feed her.

Shinkansen: Oh, not this again.

Day 9: Basic Addition

Gloa: Wait, we have 6 family members now?

Shinkansen: Yep, looks like Allatwan arrived.

Posted Image

Gloa: But that means we no longer have Fiiiiive...

Shinkansen: Um, yes it does. Uh, don't you have the highest logic skill of us? I mean, doesn't that include arithmetic or something?

Gloa: :P

Shinkansen: Aren't you supposed to be asleep?

Gloa: Aren't we supposed to only have 5 household members? I mean, wasn't there a limit there?

Shinkansen: Well, yes. But there was nobody else for Allatwan to live with, since nobody else volunteered, and single person neighbors are boring because they're all impoverished and spend all their time futilely working. Also, we needed Activity and Material Funding Compensation Calculating Equipment.

Gloa: You mean cash. We needed cash?

Shinkansen: Aren't you supposed to be asleep?

Gloa: I am asleep.

Shinkansen: You don't sound asleep.

Gloa: You would only know if you weren't asleep too, so ha!

Shinkansen: Of course I'm not asleep - I'm taking a shower!

Allatwan: Hi everyone! I'm really tired, since moving in in the middle of the night is sort of odd and tiring, lol! Hey, there's only five bedrooms...

Gloa: Steal Shinkansen's bedroom. He's not using it.

Shinkansen: That's because I was showering!

Gloa: You don't snooze, you lose.

Shinkansen: You're supposed to be sleeping. :P

Some simple plastering and such later!

Shinkansen: No floor, no wallpaper, no nothing - but it will do for now.

This is a strange household.

For one, the house designs radically change overnight, including new rooms appearing out of thin air (and my cash supply diminishing into that same thin air).

Then there's Nyrunia. There's something strange about the girl. She seems obsessed with the desire for fire.


Posted Image
I have become the fire so much that I have a faster metabolism now. I am fire!


The others seem equally obsessed with their dislike for the same element.

--
Luna: Today, I will upgrade that fireplace to fireproof. It's just too dangerous.

Gloa: Fires, why do all these fires break out across the city? Sounds like a job for the chess-men.

Posted Image
The key to being a hero is discipline. Discipline and fitness and being prepared for every single possible contingency. That's why I practiced hard enough to gain an Iron Bladder. Now I am so disciplined I never have to use a toilet. Mind over matter and all that.

Nyrunia: Ew, you're a bookworm? I never read books.

Hello? I'm still on fire here.


Gloa: Eh, I'm sure the fire department is coming. Also, how are you standing on that foot?

Lostthyme: I think I need a new book to read, what do you think, luna?

Luna: Hello, I'm ON FIRE!

Nyrunia: I know, isn't it so exciting?

Finally.

Just a little singed.


Luna: I'm so traumatized now. And the fireplace isn't even fireproofed yet! (or even put out by the numerous fire extinguishers blowing around)

Posted Image

Allatwan: That's nice to hear. Check.

Luna: Traumatized traumatized traumatized!

Everyone: *yawn* - hey, it's about time to go to bed now.

Ok, I'm frightened now.

And lightly-roasted Luna is something I'm not going to soon forget...:eyebrow:

And I always pick White.

No update at the moment, but how about an info dump?

Gloa:
Friends: Best friends with Allatwan, Shinkansen, and some NPC (I think his work partner). Friends with Luna and some other NPC.
Job: Level 5 Law Enforcement Superhero Career "Lieutenant"(with the benefit of having his own patrol car now, which he keeps in his pocket). He makes 77 Simoleons an hour, and works M-Fr, 9 AM to 3 PM
Skill Levels (you get these by reading books meant to help you skill in the subject, or by doing things related to it - playing Chess and stargazing boost Logic, Handiness is boosted by repairing and tinkering, etc.): Logic 6, Athletic 3, Guitar 2, Handiness 1
10,366 Lifetime reward points (these add up when they're particularly happy, or when the player promises to fulfill some of their wishes, and then fulfills them [things like "Earn a Promotion" or "Prepare Waffles" or "Reach Skill Level 5 in Logic" or "See Luna's Ghost"])

Shinkansen:
Friends: Best friends with Gloa, Allatwan. Friends with one NPC
Job: Level 4 Political Career "Yes Man" (or "Decision and Direction Agreement Consulting Specialist") . Earns 45 Simoleons an hour, same hours as Gloa. [Gloa just recently sprinted ahead of Shinkansen in the job promotion scene, and Shinkansen is close to getting promoted - before that, Shinkansen always got promoted first, even though Gloa is usually Working Hard, and does all kinds of special late shifts and odd jobs, while Shinkansen just breezes through work - apparently, Shinkansen is a very good politician]
Skill Levels: Logic 2 Charisma 5 Fishing 2
Lifetime Reward points: 15,727

Luna:
Friends: Friends with Nyrunia and Gloa.
Job: Level 1, Part Time Job: Bookstore, "Cash Register Specialist". Earns 30 Simoleons an hour, 4PM-7PM, M-Fr
Skill Levels: Painting 5 Cooking 5 Writing 1 Handiness 8 [19 Skill Level points, mostly because she only just got a job, and before that had been working at home the whole time]
Lifetime Reward Points: 16,351

Lostthyme:
No friends.
Unemployed (but her book writing may be pulling in the most money - she can get up to 45 Simoleons just for submitting chapters of her books to the Publisher, even before the Royalty checks she gets from all her writings).
Skill Levels: Writing 7 Cooking 1 Logic 1 Handiness 3
Lifetime Reward Points: 8,797

Nyrunia:
Friends: Friends with Luna.
Job: Level 3 Criminal Career - "Thug" - 32 Sim an hour, 9PM - 3 AM, M-T, F-Sun [yep, now she's working the night shift - she's still a bit behind the others in terms of job performance, partially from having no athletic skill - which she needs for her job - missing a few days due to almost starving and getting arrested, and some other things]
Skill Levels: Logic 1 Cooking 1 Handiness 4
Lifetime Rewards Points: 10,848

Allatwan:
Friends: Best Friends with Gloa. Good Friends with Shinkansen.
Job: Level 1 Music Career - "Fan" - M, T, Th-Sat 3-9PM
Skill Levels: Logic 2 Cooking 3 Guitar 2
Lifetime Rewards Points: 7,341

Most of you can purchase more Lifetime Rewards (only the ones from the base game - you can also decide to keep saving up reward points - don't mind the "Child, Teen, Young Adult" column thing, since you all are young adults [and so can buy any of them]).

Friends come and go, you're self-reliant.
(25% chance that character LostThyme has gained the trait 'stressed')

Anyway, definitely need the 'Haggler' trait-reward-thingy.
I'll be down to 727 pointy-whatists, but who cares?
