I bet you were beginning to think you did not have a ghost of a chance.

Ha!

But really, thank you so much for this. :D

Hehe! I loved it from beginning to end.
So clever to do a speedy ghost-only Life State Dynasty. Well done! :)

Thank you!

What a wonderful dynasty, I loved the fact that you only had ghosts and poor Josh - those toilets will take a long time xD

Josh actually has an even worse fate now; he makes for a shockingly gorgeous woman, so he spends most of his time gender-flipped to model women's clothes in-game for me. I might just have to get a picture of it. ;)

Oh. My. GAWD.

I'm sure to add insult to injury, but I think you should have him do a 100-baby challenge as even more punishment, since he's quite attractive as a woman. With the way the stupid attraction system in game works, men would be lining up to impregnate her. Yikes!

But then again, he has only himself to blame. All that hard work and it was for nothing. If it were me, I would have swallowed my pride, not done the challenge, and just cleaned up the toilets before they got so badly neglected. :p
I play The Sims 4 for fun, so I don't care if I never end up being interviewed for the Dynasty Hall of Fame; people who play for keeps burn out too easily and don't enjoy playing the games, so I am going to not sweat the details.

I don't think femme-Josh would need the attraction system to get men lining up for her:



Just as proof that Josh works as any gender. ;)

But an 100-Baby challenge with Josh would be pretty great; I would keep the ghost theme and make is a dark mixture of supernatural fanaticism and being a black widow. I actually do have plans for Josh that allow him to keep his masculinity, so I guess his other side has to stay in the sim-bin.

And snobby Josh has too much pride to safely swallow. I wanted to make him seem a little more sympathetic, but his traits called for something else.

Thanks for the comment!

Finally found it!  I don't know how I missed it at the time but after your comments on my 4x4, I had to go looking for the Escapists.  Gotta love an all-ghost dynasty :D.

Having got to know the Starlight Shores ghosts a little, I was wondering how you'd managed to get the additional types.  Madeline Buckshot's such an attractive elder that it's odd to see how much worse she looks when young.  The effects of too much plastic surgery, maybe ;).  On the other hand, Paul Best ages down really well.

Sorry for not replying for a month. I get distracted easily.

What can I say, you partially inspired me to do this. I didn't want to make it a rehash of The Ghosts of Twinbrook, but part of thought process was "let's do an all-ghost dynasty, like Hazelnut!!" Because fairies and werewolves are too easy. :P

As for the additional types, Josh was made that way in CAS, I patiently waited for Madeline to die of old age, and I invited Paul to parties once story progression turned him into a vampire, and he died of thirst eventually. Madeline's cheekbones were quite something, but they implied that she's gone under the knife in her bio, so it made enough sense. Paul was just adorable. I have a soft spot for geeky, hipster-types. Plus, he's a perfect dynasty spouse because of his excellent traits. Unlike a lot of the other spouses, he was extremely well-behaved.

Granted, I finished the story in a week. It was very easy to miss. :P

I'm glad you liked it!

Manly Josh with full testosterone!

Probably would still look nice if I changed it.
