Well, there are sites and stuff. I've matched gods/goddesses to skills before. If you don't mind spoiling the surprise a bit, you could PM me and I can look up names for you.

Thanks!  :)

The wereboos are still sausage burritos, ya'll are literally caught up to where I am right now. About the only one that makes me giggle is Minerva having Hates the Outdoors. If I make her the heir, how is she supposed to practice hunting solo?

Minerva is the Roman version of Athena - I figured since they were both wereboos, they should reflect "same, yet not" sort of thing. I did also consider Hera/Juno, Aphrodite/Venus, and even Bast/Sekhmet, but since I plan on using Logic for generation 2, Athena/Minerva just seemed better.

Edit: I forgot. Nixie, I've learned, just means "fairy" in German.

Did you rename Minerva after you found out she was a wereboo too or did it say when you rolled her traits? Let's hope you get lucky and one of them rolls the genius trait.  :P Athena's hair looks almost like her daddy's except darker. Whose eyes do the wereboos have, daddy's or just a generic yellow?
Other than that, yay for toddlers~  ;D

Thanks, Ombra, I may do just that. I'll review the names I have currently, and see if maybe I can just swap them around.

Actually, Ladyaya, they were all renamed. Since there's no notification about life state at birth, just gender, all three were given especially unique names - Girl, Girl2, and Girl3. Once they were in the relationship panel, then Jaycen hied on over to city hall to rename them.

As for their eyes, those are Jaycen's werewolf eyes. I have no idea if the girls are in werewolf form, or if those are the new normal eyes, and I keep missing that color on Jaycen.

Next up: Train Nixie first, then she can pretty much amuse herself since I brought the fairy house indoors for her. Then deal with the wereboos.

Lol
Like I said before, werewolves usually have glowy eyes, and when you first switch a sim to a werewolf they're given yellow eyes. I like changing the eye colour so you can have some awesome blue glowy eyes.  ;D If they can hunt and howl at the moon, they're in were form by the way. Weres cannot do so in their human form. Maybe once they can walk click on them and see if they have the option to transform? Although, I could be totally off on the hunting thing simply because i've not played were toddlers yet.  :)

The only thing I've noticed so far with the toddlers and werewolf actions is the ability to Scratch the dresser.

However, on the day of their birthday, it went like this.

Buy cake.
Nixie blows out candles, then makes a beeline for the mirror so she's not bald. Has a fit at the the sculpting gnome blocking the dresser, so goes to play with the dollhouse. After the gnome is moved, she goes to get dressed
Meanwhile, buy cake.
Minerva blows out candles, dirties her diaper, and has Ama change her, then makes beeline for the mirror so her bowl cut goes bye bye. Goes to get dressed, then join Nixie at the dollhouse.
Meanwhile, buy cake.
Athena blows out the candles, then goes off to be a non-bald baby. Ama briefly ponders if that scorching affair with Pablo the pool boy dockworker resulted in the birth of Athena, then remembers that Pablo didn't have that weird color, nor was there actually a Pablo to start with. Gets dressed.

Then Shirin went to bed.

Werewolf toddlers also have the tendency to howl at the moon, much like adult werewolves. It's one of the cutest things I've ever seen.

Haha, now you just need to play them more and find out.  ;D

Toddler werewolves are so cute. They can practice hunting also.
The triplets are adorable but Athena is my favorite. :)

"Shirin.

"Shirin!

"SHIRIN!"

"What now?! You aren't in labor, for Sims' sake!"

"No, but I'm being neglected."

"No, you really aren't. It's hardly my fault that the modem decided to work break work break work break work break work break work break work break work break work break work break work break work break work break work break work break work br-"

"I get the point."

"-eak all weekend, so I couldn't put up pictures. At least it's working."

"But you are still neglecting me and my three daughters. Oh yeah, and my pet spouse."

"That's because I'm at work right now."

"Excuses! Did you find out about the girls and school?"

"Yeah yeah, Uncle Metro and Auntie Rica have approved of their grades and put them on honor roll."

"Uncle...Metro? Auntie Rica? Do they know?

"Shirin?

"Shirin!

"Man, I really hate it when you do this stupid vanishing act!"

Oh yes, Ama is going to be a handful.

I am somewhat afraid of how her heir will be at YA.

"Shirin! Stop neglecting my daughters and me!"

"Wow, you're needy. What is it now?"

"You can show off my cute girls!"


"Well, here's a cute one of Nixie and Athena playing with their dollhouse."


"And Nixie in the toy box."


"And Nixie on the train set."

"But none of Minerva or a better one of Athena?"

"Well, no. You blazed through Nixie's toddler skills and turned her loose. It's kind of boring watching the walking or talking or peeing. And poor Nixie was neglected by her parents."

"She's a loner, we didn't neglect her!"


"Uh huh. Oh look! Another Nixie picture! Looks like she wants to faceplant, too."




"Wow, they don't look happy about school, do they?"

"Would you be?"

"I loved school."

"You're weird, too. School is where they teach you terrible things. Like math. What use are you going to have for math?"

"I could write an algorithm that turns you from a fairy into a hairy. That takes math. Besides, logic is going to be the next skill, so let's see if that's going to be Athena's or Minerva's domain."


"Good thing I sent Athena to the roof to use the telescope."


"And Minerva to the basement for the chemistry table."




"And I sent you and Jaycen to the new massage table. I figured you would need it after all those sculptures, and he after all that shapeshifting."

"Stop being generous. It's creepy. And worrisome. And if we were in Lunar Lakes, I'd worry that you're related to that red guy that thinks he's an evil harbinger of death or something."

"I'm not related to Artie."

"Does that mean next time, he and I can try for those kids?"

".......no. Get your hormones under control."

"I can't help it!"


"Sure you can. Look at what Minerva does in werewolf form."

"Ugh. Oh, and just to double triple quadruple check, the principal at school was super stuffy and had this thing about the girls shedding in class, and that's why Uncle Metro and Auntie Rica had to threaten persuade Ms Stuffypants to put them on the honor roll, right?"

"....you can say that, sure."


"Yay! Athena's cake is...what flavor?"

"Olive."

"Ew."


"What about Nixie's?"

"Dusty."

"Gross."


"And Minerva's?"

"Can't tell, the baker shed fur into it."

"Shirin!"

"Sor...wait, no, I'm not sorry. Anyway, I'll show off the girls as teenagers before you have a fit."


"This is Athena Hendrix."


"And this is Nixie Hendrix."


"And this is Minerva Hendrix."




"And this is the first day of school, and I'm sensing a trend."

"You mean like Nixie preferring to sit by Athena on the first day of school?"

"Something like that. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Wait, of course you are."

"Yup. The heir has been selected."

Speaking of Minerva (and Nixie), I'm sure you saw that the two of them have bangs to hide those godawful bridges. I tried hairstyles that don't involve bangs, but nothing worked at all. And all three girls have Jaycen's eye shape.

So I'm looking around for a potential spouse for the heir (who may or may not be Minerva), and strangely, the only witch the girls know is their half-brother, Pedro (which makes me giggle, as Jaycen is a wolf and Pedro's mother, Lina, is a fairy). Good thing she has plenty of time!

It seems that husband hunting really is harder in the life states dynasty than any of the others.

I think I like both girls, will be interesting to see who you end up with.

It really is. Most dynasties you can choose from anyone who's not an occult. In this one, you have to find a specific occult!

Not necessarily, you just need a different life state than the one you have, so at the beginning, it's easy! xD

It's easier for me. I can just get a list of all the original townies who start out as occults, pick out who could make a good spouse, and occasionally throw a Fountain of Youth potion at them. I can't do that in an immortal dynasty, especially because I feel very strongly about picking original townies/their offspring for spouses

Only in Moonlight Falls is that possible. =P

It would be harder in other EA towns, but still possible. You just need to meet a lot of people and see what your relationship panel looks like as people get turned.

What you say is true. And also, there's that ever-helpful trick you mentioned where you dig up their grave (muahahaha) and re-animate them.

Ama would like me to tell you demands I inform you that her chosen heir is Nixie.

Yes, the fairy who hasn't done any of the requirements to be the heir.

Personally, I think she's enjoying this mystery, even though I haven't made it particularly mysterious yet. At any rate, according to her, it's Nixie. According to Jaycen, it's either Athena or Minerva. Good thing I get the tie-breaking vote. ;D

Small update, the heir in question did successfully hit honor roll this time. I had two field trips pop up, I declined them both (I don't know if that makes a difference). And already reached level 3 of her part time job. She just needs her romantic interest, and the prom is tomorrow night (I usually have good luck with proms producing a romantic interest). If the prom fizzles out, there are also three other classmates who have since graduated - and none of them are occult; finally, Jaycen has enough LTHP to purchase the genie lamp, it's a 50/50 chance there.

But in the meantime, I'm going to go lock Ama in Bonehilda's closet, she's demanding to have more faeboos (I'm refusing).
