Samura's Dojo Dynasty: Moonlight Falls
« on: September 15, 2012, 05:39:35 PM »
New Beginnings

(I apologize, I accidentally deleted the screenshots for this first update. All the others have pictures though!)

When Samura first learned that her dynasty file had become corrupted, she was none too happy about the idea of starting over again. Who would want to leave behind three lovely children and a grandchild?

Then I told her she was going to get witch powers.

Samura: "I get to be a witch this time? Fantastic! Now chop, chop! Make me young again and let's get going!"

Although her outfits have pretty much stayed the same, something feels just a little bit different this time--and it's not just the magic.

That's because this time, Samura's skin tone is on the rainbow slider. Who knows what color the next generation will be?

Samura proudly surveys her new, empty lot in Moonlight Falls.

First things first, she checks out her new powers. Wa la, one apple a la magic coming right up!

Samura: "No more bicycle, I get a broomstick? Sweet!"

Samura is relieved that she won't have to bike around town this time until I finally scrounge up the money for a car.

All alone in a new world, far away from the children she used to know, Samura knows exactly what she needs to do first. She needs to find some friends to help her achieve immortality.

Samura convinces Annalove Ivy to join her cause, corning her in the salon bathroom.

Samura: "Look, you're a hippy, yes? Well how about you get in touch with nature, live on my lawn, and paint and garden for me?"

Much to her surprise, Annalove actually agreed to move in! Looks like a big house and nice family were tying Annalove down; living in Samura's yard seemed like just the new start she needed.

Samura went to bed, her first night in a new town, feeling considerably more hopeful about the future. After all, now that she wasn't alone, she felt sure she could do anything!


Unfortunately, Moonlight Falls had other plans in mind.

Welcome back, Samura! :)
She is as gorgeous as ever, with or without rainbow slider. (Still, that bit intrigues me.)

An Unexpected Disaster

Thanks for the warm welcome back, everyone! I'm happy to be starting a new story with Samura. I'd gotten quite attached to her from my last dynasty attempt, which was all too short-lived.

Samura and Annalove were sleeping soundly, when a dark shadow passed over them.

Girls, girls, wake up! No, Samura--STOP MAKING THE BED AND MOVE!!



Samura: "Huh, I think I see something. Is that a --"



That's right, Moonlight Falls decided to welcome Samura's new dynasty with a meteor. Gee, couldn't they just have sent a fruit basket like polite neighbors do?

Samura was standing close enough to get singed, but otherwise she was fine.



Nothing like a good dose of terror to wake a gal up in the night.



As for Annalove? The poor girl was tired.



So tired, in fact, that she made a mad suicidal rush for the bed right as the meteor came down. That's why, I suppose, she was laying down when her ghost appeared.



I'm sorry, Annalove. I should've taken better care of you. Your gatherer trait would have been a handy addition to the Dojo household.



Well, at least she brought in a fancy car which sold for quite a nice chunk of change, so moving her in wasn't a total bust. Still, that means Samura needs to spend another couple of days looking for a new friend to move in--which is going to put getting sculptures done for Samura's young adult birthday in an iffy situation.



Samura remembered another acquaintance she had met yesterday: a slightly green witch-paparazzi named Carmella Hai.



She invited Carmella over for a little chat and--for once--a paparazzi wasn't too busy to drop by!



Samura: "Hi, I wondering if you like to move in with me. See, I'm starting an--"



Samura: "Oh, um. Oh my!"

Carmella: "Why for you, lovely? Anything!"



And that is how Samura Dojo came to fall under a witch's love spell.

Meteors, magic, and love spells, oh my! What other strange and unexpected twists does Moonlight Falls have in store for Samura next?

I was practically crawling with laughter from the shock as the meteor strike, er, struck home! But the end... I'm positively gobsmacked. And what is it with Samura and green girls?

I never once thought of a meteor! That goes to show...

What is with your Dynasties and meteors???? This has to be the second time! Although this has to be the first time someone actually died, I think. Poor Annalove.  :'(

Home Sweet Home

I was pretty shocked by that meteor, too! It was either the first or second night of the dynasty; what are the odds? At least when the Gilbert's got a meteor it was because four sims had been camping on a lawn for days and then invited another seven or so over for a party. Despite all of the frantic children screaming for dear life, no one died in the Gilbert crash. Poor Annalove! She just couldn't wait to go back to sleep. I'm glad you all enjoyed the randomness and hilarity.

So Carmella Hai, Samura's new love interest and local witch-paparazzi joined the Dojo household. She promptly got a makeover.



And of course, got started sculpting. Unfortunately, despite having been a paparazzi, she did not bring a camera with her in her inventory. Seriously, what sort of awful paparazzi is just using a cell phone to take pictures? Well, I guess phones can do it all these days.



Still, Carmella couldn't very well sculpt, paint, cook, photograph, and garden all on her own. Samura decided she needed to add another member to the household. Since she wasn't ready just yet to settle down with a spouse, Samura decided to befriend the first eligible sim she could could find.

Samura: "Why hello! Beatrice Crumplebottom, is it? Well, welcome your dream life! Forget selling items in retail, you could be a self-employed painter/gardener!"



Beatrice was easily persuaded, and also received a prompt make-over.



And so the endless days of skilling began.



Samura fished, of course. Here's her adorable fishing pout (because you know I love it!):



Occasionally, the local children brought baked goodies to sell at the pond. Samura enjoys a quick chocolatey snack.



I just had to include those because I thought it was cute. I've never run into a kid autonomously holding a bake sale! I guess my sims don't get out of the house enough.

Living with a ghost isn't always easy. Annalove stops by in the middle of the night, waking everyone up in the process.



The girls also had another unpleasant guest: the repo gal showed up to take some of their stuff. Hey, who forgot to click on the mailbox and pay the bills? . . . Oh, that would be me, wouldn't it?



After eating her dinner sitting on the toilet seat, Samura decides that enough is enough.



It's time to use Annalove's money and build a dojo. She insists that I build it as close to her original one as possible.



Home sweet home.

Zombies and Fairy Police

Thanks for the compliments on the house! It's barely decorated in the inside so far, but I'll get to it eventually.

In many ways, life in Moonlight Falls is much like the life Samura knew in Union Cove. After all, she spends much of her time fishing.



On the other hand, life in Moonlight Falls is sometimes very, very different. On the night of a full moon, Samura returns home from the graveyard with her first deathfish in tow and encounters her first zombie.



Run, Samura, run!



Good girl.

Fortunately, the zombies are both slow and stupid. The Dojo household is glad that a zombie cannot figure out how to open the simple sliding door to enter their home.



Unfortunately, the burglars in the town are somewhat more intelligent. The simple sliding door poses them no challenge.



Thankfully, the alarm system does pose a challenge. Police arrive on the scene almost instantly.



Yes, that's right. This policeman is a fairy. Anyone else seeing the irony in this?

Well, true to his nature, this fairy policeman shows no inclination to get his hands dirty fighting crime. Instead, he waltzes right by the bad guy to mac on Carmella.

Carmella: "I'm sorry, I can't possibly hear you over the sound of this very loud alarm. What was that?"



She rejects him, and--in a huffy--fairy policeman promptly leaves the house . . . without bothering to take the burglar with him.

Samura: "Um, hello! You left the burglar in our house! Yes, he's still here. Could you come and get him?"



After a second policeman arrives to take away the burglar, the girls return to their skilling while the low rumblings of hungry zombies provide a soothing, ambient noise.



Yup, life in Moonlight Falls is certainly strange.

The fairy policeman was hilarious. He really was with the fairies, wasn't he... apart from being a fairy.  :P
How curious (but fortunate) that the zombies can't open sliding doors. Do they really make soothing sounds, or is that a joke?
Great update!  :)

And what an ambient noise it is.. Welcome back to Samura and her Dojo.   How nice of the meteor to come crashing down like that.  Was it at least worth anything? 

What a nice household of women you got going there.  Can't wait to see what Moonlight Falls throws your way next!

Romance and Rebounding

Well, the zombies do make soft gurgling noises, although I wouldn't really call them soothing. It was supposed to be a joke. The meteor did sell for a nice couple thousand, if I recall correctly. It's been awhile.

Carmella aged up to adult quietly while working at her sculpting station.



Beatrice's birthday was a mix of good and bad. On the one hand, Annalove stole her bed then had the nerve to take a nap in it. On the other hand, Beatrice finally got to take some personal time off from painting and gardening to learn alchemy.



Here she is after an elder make-over.



Carmella managed to finish her 25th ice sculpture several days before Samura's adult birthday. Unfortunately, she didn't get the gratitude she expected from her lover.

Carmella: "I did it! I can make your ice sculpture now!"

Samura: "Um, yeah . . . Carmella, we need to talk."



Carmella: "You're breaking up with me? You ungrateful floozy!"

Despite the fact that both of them had failed to throw up more than a single wish for each other, Carmella was devastated by Samura's decision. Sure, they hadn't spent much time together, but that was just life in a dynasty household, right? (As a side note, I really considered keeping them together--despite the fact that Samura would have to invite a man into the household to birth the next generation. I decided to let their wishes make the call.)

Well, Carmella did what so many do after a bad break up. She re-bounded with the first handsome fella she could find!



He was amenable to her wiles. Check out the lusty expression on his face! Meow!



Only a short time later, the sound of lullaby chimes drifted through the Dojo house.



I can't remember his name right now, poor guy. Carmella, on the other hand, can't seem to stop thinking about him. By now she's thrown up at least four or five wishes to marry him.

Samura, meanwhile, was engaging in a whirlwind romance of her own. When Pablo showed up to repair their dishwasher, Samura went for a bold move.



She successfully plants a first kiss. I think Pablo looks like he'll have some nice baby-making genes.



With Samura on the far left side of her skin tone slider, and Pablo clearly somewhere on the right side of his skin tone slider, we should have plenty of color options for a rainboo.

Samura hitting on the repair man. lol.

Also, I personally cannot stand zombies. They were interesting at first, but halfway through my last dynasty attempt, I got the glitch where if you save and exit on a full moon, zombies will continuously spawn. I eventually had enough when my 2nd Gen's live-in girlfriend came down with the T-Virus, and restarted. It was a real shame because Agnes was sculpting some crazy stuff, and I was really looking forward to making a museum out of it (Oh, and I already had my 1st Gen immortalized. :C )
