Welcome to the Hallows Legacy!

Rosemary, our lovely founder, is by [personal profile] alleliua . This is a Round Robin legacy, using the original legacy rules as set out by Pinstar and the round robin rules as set out by Laridian. I will be playing through generation 1, until the generation 2 offspring age to adult. The generation 2 heir/ess will be chosen by poll and sent off to start their adult pixellated life with [personal profile] daysofoursims . The overall theme for the legacy is "horror and halloween" and the naming theme for this generation's offspring is based on the movie Alien.

You've seen the house, now it's time to see what she's been up to :)

Rosemary Hallows

Star sign: Leo
Aspiration: Knowledge (she later rolled Popularity for secondary aspiration)
LTW: Become Hand Of Poseidon
Turn ons: Logical and Athletic
Turn off: Cologne

Jones Hallows

Named after the cat from Alien, because that's our naming theme :) He's a Leo, too, but I can't remember all his stats. I also cannot remember his breed, but it was chosen by my 3 year old daughter because she thought it was cute.

Jones immediately reminds me why I usually avoid the pets part of the Pets EP. Bad kitty!

The turned over flower pot survived thanks to Rosemary's quick intervention but thanks to one of their first interactions being "Scold" the cat and founder are not getting along too well. So Rosemary gets digging. Gotta buy back some of the deco we had to sell so she could move into the house I built for her!

She dug up a rock and a water pipe. After a couple more tries I figure out the terrain I used is low over the water table and Rosemary will dig a swimming pool quicker than she can afford to actually buy one.

Jones then partially redeems himself by being cute and I almost forgive him for trying to destroy the place.

It's Mina, by [personal profile] daysofoursims ! My first walkby! You can't half tell I was super excited :)

Apparently this hood suffers from lack of the welcome wagon. So we greet the Gypsy due to lack of anything to do and anybody to talk to.

Rosemary: Matchmaker, Matchmaker! Make me a match!

Gypsy: For 20 bucks it ain't going to be much!

It's Judah! (also by [personal profile] alleliua )

Rosemary doesn't look too impressed.

Judah: What happened? How did I get here?

Rosemary: Welcome. The Matchmaker said you are my 20 buck match.

Judah: Somehow, that doesn't really explain what happened.

Judah: I was at a night bowling tournament in Reno and then suddenly I was here, in full daylight!

Rosemary: Fascinating! Do you go bowling much?

Judah: Every chance I can get!

Rosemary: At night bowling do you bowl with ghosts? Are there weird and freaky people about?

Judah: No... It's just a bunch of normal guys bowling...

Rosemary: But your skin is all grey! You don't look like just a normal guy.

Judah: Lady, your skin is grey, too, and your lips are cracked. You don't look like you moisturise too regulalry.

Jones: Dude's got a point. Lady looks a touch on the grey-with-dry-lips side.

They got along reasonably well and I was impressed that they had 1 bolt of attraction despite this being a 20 buck date.

Rosemary then got a phone call from a game-generated downtownie to go out on the town. I was worried that my custom downtownies weren't working properly. And poor Jones got left behind to fend for himself.

At Bernard's Botanical Dining, a bunch of custom downtownies are doing an impression of The Right Stuff.

Left to right: Abella by [personal profile] xhale , Troy by [personal profile] cpowellscircus , Ritchie by [personal profile] joedy , Quin by [personal profile] garnet812 and Chord, who is actually Chloe by [personal profile] 6akalaka1 , with a sex change.

Rosemary was hungry so I sent them to eat. The waiter immediately started doing an impression out of the Exorcist and rotating his head backwards just to look at Abella. Who was most obliging and talked to him about kissing.

Stunned Waiter: That hot chick just told me things about kissing I am not going to forget any time soon!

This is the first time ever I have seen the elf face template goth downtownie.

First I put a cat in a legacy and now this. I'm just full of firsts.

Let's see some closeups of the potential mates I threw into the game for Rosemary.

Chord, aka Chloe, by [personal profile] 6akalaka1

Abella by [personal profile] xhale . Who's not really in the running since I don't have any same-sex-pregnancy hacks.

Quin by [personal profile] garnet812

Troy by [personal profile] cpowellscircus

And Ritchie by [personal profile] joedy

After checking out every male in the bunch Rosemary had the best chemistry (2 bolts) with Ritchie and Troy. Everyone else scored 1 bolt or none. When making these guys in CAS I didn't pay attention to their zodiac or aspiration, so it's pretty much random who got what stats and none of this was by design on my part. They got the zodiac they randomly rolled when I switched to the 6th tab in CAS and the turn ons/off were random point-and-clicks.

I couldn't get Rosemary to get along with Ritchie. I really tried. I had her start a conversation with him three times and he kept rejecting her attempts to talk :(

Troy, on the other hand, immediately told her she was the bomb.

And then almost immediately tried to pimp her out to his friend :/

Rosemary was all tuckered out after all that action and immediately headed for bed. I had to kick her out because Jones needed to go for a tinkle. Also, she didn't have enough money to pay for dinner and the game told me she'd get billed for it later.

Since we're encouraged to try and turn our sims into supernatural creatures in this legacy I thought we'd say hello to the Leader Of The Pack.

What is it with these animals hating on the turned over flowerpot???

Bye, Mr Wolf!

Rosemary turned out to be very lucky and immediately landed a job in Oceanography as a Fish Chummer. Love the uniform!

Jones was left to his own devices for the day.

Jones: Step away from the screen, lady. My mousey!

Jones: Ninja Kitteh POUNCE!!!!

Jones: Nice mousey *rubs face in catnip*

LOL catnip

LOL bills

Unless she actually earns some money and doesn't get fired, she can't afford to pay for that dinner this time around, either.

Blazer! (by [personal profile] cpowellscircus ) Why are you here when Rosemary isn't?

Since Rosemary wasn't exactly bringing in the big bucks it was time to send Jones to work.

Rosemary: Meow! Meow! Speak, kitty! Speak!

Jones: Hells to the no! What do you think I am? Some desperate extra on a second rate TV show?

Ummm... YES!

The next day...

Great. It's not like they had the money in the first place.

Desperate and pennyless Rosemary tries to make nice with Troy.

My plan was to send her on a date with each of her prospects, see who she got along with best. But for that she needed to make friends on the phone first.

My chance card fail continues. It's not like she needed the money, or anything, right? Right?

Rosemary arrived home pretty downbeat.

Troy: Luckily for her I happened to be here to pick up the pieces :D

They immediately started gossiping about Abella, the kissing guru.

Troy: I am your sunshine on a cloudy day :D

Rosemary: I got fired and my cooking skill is so low all I could make were these lousy bologna sandwitches :(

I cancelled the "Relax" action about 3 times in a row. In the end I gave in because I couldn't even make her say goodbye to him because they'd just queue up "Relax" again.

No chimes, thank God!

Rosemary and Troy: Om nom nom

I guess we're committed to this cause then.

Rosemary jumps straight back into the tank, so to speak. She can get the job easily enough. Let's see if she can keep it this time.

ZOMG!!! My first ever love letter! I've never had a sim receive a hate letter, either!

Please excuse the love letter spam but I was excited.

But who sent it???



Sorry Judah, looks like Rosemary decided to go with someone else.

Rosemary invited Troy out on a date. I thought she'd change out of her PJs before arriving at Doc Allan's Hangout. Apparently not. Chord does not approve.

OK... So you guys were just friends with benefits?

Rosemary tries her luck since things are going so well.


Stop smirking, Bill by [personal profile] xhale !

Our girl is absolutely shattered and the date meter tanks. Do not want flaming poo so we keep trying.


Rosemary expressed her love once again.

We have engagement lift-off!

Inside the bar, Judah drowns his sorrows.

Judah: I really thought I had her! My stories about the night bowling were the best ever! How could she do this to me????

Rosemary joins Penn (by [personal profile] xhale ) for some pool.

Clarice (by [personal profile] cpowellscircus ) also came by.And a good time was had by all.

The next day Raymon (aka Ramona by [personal profile] daysofoursims ) came walking past the house.

And Troy dropped off some flowers for Rosemary.

Since about a week had passed since Rosemary landed in The Hallows, and since they were already engaged, I figured it was time to seal the deal. Ritchie hated her and she didn't have the hots for anyone else. I know this looks fast-paced but a week has actually passed in-game. Heck, most people have their founder knocked up by the end of day 1. Rosemary is an old maid by legacy standards!

Turns out Troy was loaded even though he had a crappy job and nothing in his inventory.

Reminder to self: change Troy's first name to Troy. You no longer need to be reminded who made him :D

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

Then again, townies' memories get wiped when they get moved in so maybe not?

Also: CHIMES!!!

I leave you with this image of the newlywed Mr and Mrs Hallows snuggling in bed.

Next time: BABIES! Because we know there will be at least one :)

YAY! You got this up fast :D
I'm loving the eye candy you've got set up in your 'hood, everyone is so pretty *pats group on back for making nice simmies*
Troy is perfect for Rosemary, they're so cute (and colourful) together! Plus Carrie-sims make gorgeous babies :D I'm going to have to find some cute retro chickie in a Shannanigan cardie for Judah though, poor bloke. Rosemary was definitely never the girl for him.
Jones is very cute and adorable, possibly because I don't have to sit through his wanton destruction. Love the pics of him playing with the mouse.
Can't wait for next time! Hopefully the offspring turn out well and Rosemary doesn't fail quite so hard at chumming.

Yay the first update!
That was really terrific Engram!
I just love how all the townies are sims made by everyone taking part in the RR. (It's so fun seeing your sims in other people's games.)
I love Rosemary's kitty! (He is a feisty little thing.)

I can't wait to see the babies!
Thanks for getting us off to a great start!

I sinscerely hope that Abella gets into a different generation of this legacy. SO PRETTY!

Awesome start to the round robin. :D I can't wait to see the offspring of Mister and Mrs Hallows (or should that be Mrs and Mister? xD).

What a cute start, well done engram! It was so fun seeing all the lovely custom townies (and not seeing the fugly Maxis ones, lol). And even though it can be annoying if you have certain things in mind, I love it when the sims chose who they want to be with, it really adds to their personalities. Can't wait for more! :)

Oh, i'm late! I didn't expect this to be up so quickly, sorry.
Awesome beginning, Engram! All of the simmies look so cute and the cat is so funny. Troy is a great choice for a hubby, they are gonna have the cutest kiddos. LOL @ Chloe dude still wearing all the make up and looking as feminine as possible :D
I love the idea of giving all of them a middle name- the name of the creator, so you don't get mixed up :D Can't wait to see more!
Btw, may i ask what your LJ address is so i can snag some simmies from you?
