Chapter 1: An unearthly child



Nick: So, what do you say to getting married and having a child to start a 16-generation long dynasty?
Cassidy: I won't need to sculpt, right? I have a feeling it'd be bad for my health . . .
Nick: Nonsense! We just need to be really, really happy.



Cassidy: I'd be happy to do it, then.



Nick: And happy to marry me?
Cassidy: Definitely! I'm not taking your surname though.



Nick: How about a new surname then? One that's uniquely ours.
Cassidy: Maybe a mix of both our surnames would do?



Nick: Like Earthhawk?
Cassidy: That sounds silly. How about Riversong?



Nick: Sounds good.
Betabee: And now I pronounce you the founders of the Riversong Dynasty!



Generation 1 is on the way! I'm not having the whole guessing game like in the Scientias. All the heirs this time will be based off Dr Who companions or the actors playing the Doctor. I aim to cover 3 Doctors per world.



The nursery is quite simple for now, partly because the cild won't spend long there, and partly because I'm trying to save money for the world moving requirements.



Hence most of the house has been emptied of furniture.



I may use some of the rooms again later on, so I haven't demolished any buildings.



All the furniture selling has allowed the family to buy and fully upgrade their first property on day 1. Score!



So here you see a renovated Louie falls, which hopefully will bring in revenue to help buy the next properties and buildings.



It's on it's way!



Jess: Why am I still here?
Betabee: Same reason as normal.
Jess:Don't tell me I'm a skill slave again!
Betabee: Yep. Sorry. You should have a longer lifespan, though. I don't think there's any restrictions on feeding you young again potions in this ruleset.
Jess: Joy.



Betabee: Enjoying yourself?
Cassidy: Reasonably. It's a good thing Social Networking is a free skill, otherwise it'd be a lot harder for me to get my lifetime wish. How's Nick?
Betabee: He's writing a few books inbetween going to work to boost the family income.



Soon enough, it's time for the first generation to arrive!



Cassidy: Yay! She's green!
Betabee: Forum, this is Susan- an artistic and good baby.



Susan was aged up immediately following her birth.
Nick: Woot! I don't have to deal with a burrito at all!



Susan: I thought I'd have grown some hair by now.
Betabee: It's only a few minutes since you were born- have some patience.



She's got Nick's eyes and hair, and her mother's skin (though in a slightly darker shade). It's hard to tell which parent she resembles most face-wise at this stage.



Betabee: Why did you have white as your favourite colour?
Susan: It's pretty and clean.
Betabee: It's a silly colour to dress a toddler in, but I've done my best.



Thus begins the heir's skilling so she can get the correct traits. I'm hoping she can get ambitious and workaholic so she can do painting and law enforcement when she's older.

I wondered about a Dr Who connection as soon as I saw the surname :).  (And then the chapter title, of course.)
The Free Spirits are likely to be appearing in my dynasty as well.  That is, assuming I can get them to move in on the next attempt...

The advantages of starting with townies- extra money for properties!

The Free Spirits are likely to be appearing in my dynasty as well.  That is, assuming I can get them to move in on the next attempt...

I hope to include Dr who themed chapter titles (and heir names) throughout the dynasty.  :D
Good luck moving them into your dynasty.

Susan is adorable, I'm glad she's green! Good luck with the dynasty

So am I. It'd be interesting to see how long I can keep the green in the family.  :)

I jumped right to this one as soon as I saw the name. Cassidy is a pretty girl and will probably have some gorgeous children. Can someone point me in the direction of the 4x4 rules? I know this is a new one, but I just want to orient myself.

Chapter 2- The Daleks



And so we begin with Susan's toddler skills.
Susan: How long do I need to spend as a toddler? I'd like to eat real food.
Nick: It won't be for long, darling. I'm sure you can be aged up as soon as you're taught all your skills.



Susan: Of all the toddler pics, you had to include this one?
Betabee: Well, we've got ones of you learning to walk and talk. This is just to complete the set really.



Thus, after only a day or two, it was time for Susan to age up.



She aged up with the ambitious trait.
Betabee: Dresser first, then you've got work to do.
Susan: Already?
Betabee: We're on a limited time span here.
Susan: Fine. Mirror first though- I'm not a fan of pigtails.



Betabee: Is this better?
Susan: Yeah.



Betabee: I'm not sure white really goes that well . . .
Susan:I don't care about fashion that much. You shouldn't either, given we're in a hurry.
Betabee: Fine. That'll do. To the easel!



Susan: So, do I get tutoring or anything?
Betabee: Probably not. AN A is enough, and you need to get those paintings done.
Susan: Ok. Let me get on with it then!



I changed Nick's lifetime wish to swimming in cash. My strategy will be to use genies to get most of the money for buildings and properties. The genies will be gotten from Cassidy and Nick, since I need to get them lifetime happiness points anyway.



Poor Jess. Forced to make potions and elixirs, she got changed into a toad when making an invigorating elixir, and I've been procrastinating on curing her.



A few days later, it was time for 2 birthdays. Nick became an adult . . .



. . . and Susan became a teen.



I gave her the workaholic trait this time.
Susan: I guess this means I'll have a rabbithole job.
Betabee: Quite correct. You're going into law enforcement.



She's a nice mix of her parent's features.



Her favourite colour is stil a bit problematic however.
Susan: There's nothing saying you have to dress me in white.
Betabee: It makes my descision making easier. Back to the easel with you!



The next day was Cassidy and Jess' adult birthdays.



However, I've encountered a glitch. It seems you cannot age up if you're a toad. I tried using a cake, but that didn't work either.



I could exploit this, but it feels like cheating to leave her as a toad forever, so I sent her to the alchemy store to try and find a cure elixir.



Luckily a cure elixir was found and she was human again.



Jess aged up immediately afterwards. Her adult birthday was only a day late, but given there are no life-extending restrictions on spares and helpers, I won't worry about it too much.

Fortunalely you got a cure elixir, these toads look really strange. But on the other hand, the green matched the Riversongs.  ;)

Susan reminded me of one of Cassidy's children in my first attempt at a townie decaDynasty.

Her father is Hector Mendoza though.

It was strange having Jess wandering around as a toad. I'd have happily left her as such because it was so novel, but only decided not to once I found it affected her age. I doubt I'll have enough house room for everyone to live forever. . .

Rachel

I'm glad you enjoyed the update. She turned out quite well, I'll have to remember Hector as a potential spouse for later dynasties- what age is he at the start of the game?

I apologise for the lack of posting over the last couple of weeks- I've just finished moving back to uni for my second year. Also, I've decided to have a weekly posting schedule- I will post chapters for the Riversongs on wednesdays, and for the Scientias on saturdays.
So, on with this week's chapter. . .

Chapter 3: the aztecs



We begin on a happy note- Jess worked out how to make young again potions! She will now spend more time on alchemy, but eventually I'll give her time off to have a child.
Jess: And when exactly will that be?
Betabee: Not too long, since i'd prefer you to nab a townie to have a child with. All suggestions welcomed- a few options would be nice, just in case people have moved/run away to moonlight falls.



Cassidy: Ah, so I'm expecting again.
Betabee: Well, you wanted another child. Ask, and the watcher shall provide.
Cassidy: Are you a genie? I've seen a lot of genies around lately.
Betabee: Mostly because they give you lots of money. But no, I'm not a genie.
Cassidy: That's good- otherwise I'd have trouble getting everything done. I want a lot more than three things.
Betabee: Patience, Cass- you're only on thing 2.



And so we move on to thing 1 being caked up a couple of days early (mostly because she had an A and I wanted her to get some painting opps before she maxed the skill).



Yes, ratchie, they do look remarkably similar, despite having different fathers. They've got the same eye shape and skin.



I do like the painter-y outfit I found for Susan's everyday wear. I think it's from university life.
Susan:Yeah, I like it too. It's colourful.
Betabee: I thought you liked white?
Susan: Well, white brings out the colourfulness of other colours, right?
Betabee: I'll end the conversation here before it gets too artsy for me. . .



Susan: Policing? Really?
Betabee: One, we need a police box, and two, you can become a DNA profiler and thus use your painting.
Susan: Okay. And my partner is Sebastian Vanderburg.



Susan will be working from home most of the time so she can max her career ASAP. She can finish off the other two painting challenges inbetween.



But before that. . .
Susan: I wish for. . .love!
Genie: Well, that's new. It's been 'money money money!' from you lot thus far.
Susan: Don't question me, just do it!
Genie: Fine, who do you want to fall in love with?
Susan: Erm. . . I'm not sure.
Betabee: How about that Vanderburg guy? He might bring an expensive car and help with the properties.
Susan: Good enough. It'll also help at work, I guess.
Genie: Fine. Your wish is my command, etc, etc. Can I go now?



Sebastian was invited over that day.
Sebastian: So you're my new partner, huh?
Susan: In more ways than one, yes.



Susan: Have some flowers. They're my favourite colour.
Sebastian: So thoughtful- I'll gift them back to you later.
Susan: It's a good thing flowers don't wilt here.



Sebastian: So why do I suddenly like you so much today?
Susan: Please stop asking awkward questions- I don't have time.
Sebastian: mmmph!



Susan: So I know I only met you yesterday and got a genie to make you love me, but will you marry me?



Sebastian: Alright then. Stranger things have happened in dynasties.
Susan: This is a dynasty.
Sebastian: What?! Why did no-one tell me this before I moved in?
Susan: Well, I didn't want to scare you off now. Don't worry, all you need to do is live long enough to give me a child when the time is right.
Sebastian: Hmph.



Betabee: Will a makeover make you feel any better?
Sebastian: Possibly. I guess I'm watched now, right?
Betabee: Right.



Betabee: I know you like aqua, but is blue near enough?
Sebastian: *sigh* Whatever my lady wishes.
Betabee: Cheer up, you've got a productive and interesting life ahead of you.
Sebastian: I'd have prefered to mooch around as a townie, thanks.



Unfortunately, Sebastian's moaning had to be ignored in favour of more important happenings.



Cassidy: So what do we call this little chick?
Betabee: I think Dodo is appropriate. Let's go cake her up!




Dodo: Ooh! Can I keep a sparkle hairclip?
Betabee: Sorry, but no. Let's get you over to a dresser.



She seems to be an opposite of her sister, with Cassidy's hair but Nick's skin. She seems to have quite a few of Nick's facial features as well.



She likes aqua too, but it was considerably easier to get aqua coloured clothing for her than for Sebastian.
Sebastian: You could have tried harder to get me aqua clothing.
Betabee: But you look better in blue, so stop complaining.

I'm enjoying the brash and flippant tone you're taking with this dynasty. It's quite funny. Man, you are just whizzing right along! Or maybe it just seems like that due to the short lifespan. Poor Sebastian, getting conned into joining the dynasty. But hey, at least now he gets better hair! I think the black suits him.

That's the problem with doing alchemy without sufficient skill points. If Jess gets toadified again, I may just leave her like that-  she can't get toadified again while toadified, so her potion making may go a bit more smoothly. I'll wait and see.  :)

I'm glad you're enjoying my writing style.  :D I am covering ground much faster in this dynasty, mostly because of the shorter lifespan. Also, the household is quite full at the moment, which means I'm taking less screenshots while I'm managing everyone.
I agree, the black does suit him much better.

Chapter 4: The Keys of Marinus



We start with watching Dodo learning her toddler skills.
Dodo: Why are you watching me? Shouldn't you be watching Susan?
Betabee: She's either working from home, working from work, or painting. You're much more interesting.



Cassidy: So what do you want to do when you're older?
Dodo: Well, I'm a perfectionist eccentric genius, so I guess I'll be making potions and inventing stuff.
Cassidy: Right answer! You can also do well at school and get a good job while you're at it, yes?
Dodo: Of course. It's not like you want me to do well or anything.



Betabee: And another skill challenge done! How many have you got left?
Susan: I've only got one left to do- the master painter one.
Betabee: Excellent- You'll have a life of luxury and ease soon enough, don't worry.



I decided to feed the gang young again potions while they were all still adults so I didn't have to redo their wardrobes. Here's Sebastian. . .



. . .Nick. . .



. . .Jess . . .



. . .and Cassidy, all aged down! Hopefully Nick and Cassidy will earn enough LTHP over the next few weeks so they can provide the first two tombstones.



Soon enough, it was time for Dodo to become a child!
Dodo: Wait a sec, what happened to learning to walk.
Betabee: I lost the pic. Sorry!



Dodo:*sigh* You can't get the watchers these days.



Betabee: Or the bad hairstyles, it seems.
Dodo: This isn't bad, but not exactly what I'd like. To the mirror and dresser!




Dodo: Awesome. Do I get a room too?



I had a lot of fun doing Dodo's room.



This is the first completed room of the house. I will remake the other rooms of the house one at a time, as I feel like it. Money is less of a problem now, since the family now owns all the buildings and most of the properties.



Susan: I'd like to marry you, Sebastian.
Sebastian: OK.



Betabee: Wait, what happened to all the dynasty-hating stuff?
Sebastian: I don't want to be in a dynasty, but I still love Susan. I'm doing this for her rather than for your dynasty thing.



And so we have Mr. and Mrs. Riversong!
Sebastian: Wouldn't that be Mr. and Mrs. Vanderburg?
Betabee: It doesn't work like that, Sebastian.



Due to wishes, Nick and Cassidy are having a third child. (Tip: Kids help their parents spawn lots of lovely wishes!)



Susan: Don't you think this painting looks like an exploding TARDIS?
Sims 3:*game crashes*
But don't worry, we were able to continue from a previous save (using pixels saved in the pandorica).



Again, we fastforward through a few boring days to get to the birth of Cassidy's third child.



Meet Steven, another greenboo!



Steven was caked up immediately.
Steven: Hey, I can camoflage against this wall!



Well, he has his mother's eyes. He may eventually grow into the rest of his features.



He likes hot pink, but for his own dignity, I decided to dress him otherwise for now.



Steven: Can I be a spaceship pilot?
Sebastian: Not until you're older, kid.
Steven: Oh. Can I have a puppy instead?
Sebastian: One, we don't have the space really, and two, it depends if you're parents want one.
Steven: Can I have a horse then?
Sebastian:*facepalm*.

I'm glad you like Dodo's room. I'll have to get around to doing the other rooms soon . . .

Chapter 5- Marco Polo



Dodo's birthday arrived naturally (because I couldn't be bothered to cake her up).



Dodo: Don't show the bad hair pic please.
Betabee: Ok. Shall we skip to the makeover pictures then?
Dodo: Fine.



She's turned out quite well face-wise. I may even save her to the simbin when she's older.



Dodo: Why do I have a life jacket? We're nowhere near water.
Betabee: I bought Island Paradise the other day, that's why.



Nick: I won't need to do this again, will I?
Betabee: It depends if you want Steven to learn to drive. You're only doing this because you wanted to.
Nick: I think I'm regretting it a bit now. . . brake, Dodo, brake!



Susan finally maxed painting a few days into young adulthood.



Betabee: You know I can't send you to university, right? The bugs are making it unfeasible.
Susan: I'd prefer to go to china.



The trip to China was quite short.



A painting opp was finished, then Susan went hunting for assassin beetles for the collection.



She found one, but then I got bored and sent her home.



Steven's birthday came as soon as he finished walking and talking.



Steven: Ah! I seem to have aged up in very strange clothing. If it isn't too much bother, could I use the dresser now?
It seems Steven has aged up as a friendly little chap. To the wardrobe!



He's grown into his features quite well. I'm not sure I've found him the right hairstyle yet however . . .
Steven: Could I have a pink wardrobe this time, if that's ok?



Betabee: Here's a pink wardrobe. I tried, but pink does clash a bit with your skin colour . . .
Steven: I'm glad you tried. Maybe on my next wardrobe, we can try pink mixed with other colours?
Betabee: Okay. I guess we can work on it.



Since Steven is now too big for the nursery, He's moved into the spare room with his sister.



Betabee: Not again, Jess!
Jess: What? You're the one who wants a million elixirs. It's not my fault it goes wrong.



Susan's adult birthday arrived while she was working from home. She's about level 6 in her work, so the working from home technique is working. :)



Dodo: Yay, another birthday!
Steven: I do appreciate the extra cake.



It was Dodo's turn first.



Steven: Don't worry, sis- the dresser will fix it.



Steven-stretching time . . .



Steven: An accurate description of my wardrobe state is unrequired. Where's the dresser?
Betabee: Well, I don't have enough screenshots to show both your makeovers this chapter. Who wants to go first?
Steven, Dodo: Me first, obviously.
Betabee: Well, if you can't decide then I'll have to show both next time.
Steven, Dodo: *descend into squabbling over who goes first*
Betabee: Well, here ends the chapter then.
Steven, Dodo: Awww.

Next time: Makeovers and more.

I love Sebastian's simple response to Susan's proposal: "OK." Short. Sweet. Simple. Hi-larious.

Looks like Steven grew into those features after all. Thank goodness, he looked bizarre as a toddler. The kid's room is cute, but I guess they'll be needed something more grown up already!

Steven's quite a unique individual, it has to be said. They may get a better room if I can be bothered to redo it before they move out.

He's too cool for EA random clothing, obviously.  :D

Chapter 6: The Romans

Betabee: Right, have you decided who's going first yet?
Dodo: I am.
Steve: NO you're not!
Betabee: She got there first, so Dodo's going first.
Dodo; You snooze, you lose, little brother.



Dodo has grown up to be absolutely lovely.



She may not be green, but I'm sure she'll do the Riversong name proud.



I still haven't found a hairstyle that suits Steven properly.
Steven: I'm sure you'll find something eventually.



The colour scheme still isn't fixed either. He's a tricky guy to dress, though if anyone wants a go at his wardrobe I'll make him available on the swap shop on request.



Dodo: Why am I becoming a scientist? I'd much prefer to become a composer . . .
Betabee: The common theme for spare actions-
Dodo: Parent wishes, I know, I know.



Jessica: I missed having hair.
Betabee: You're welcome, don't mention it, don't turn yourself into a toad again, ok?



Susan: Hello second best friend.
Betabee: Here's hoping your first best friend doesn't die before I'm finished.



Sebastian: So how's the happiness points coming along?
Cassidy: Quite well, Nick and I both have about 130,000 each, so we should be able to reach the target by the time Susan finishes her requirements. How's Susan doing?
Sebastian: She's working. As usual.



Another day, another round of adult birthdays.



I won't be giving Cassidy, Nick or Sebastian any more youth potions. I've currently got 7 people in the house and it's a bit of a headache.
Sebastian: It's nice to feel wanted.



Susan: Why am I studying martial arts?
Betabee: Well, it's for your last opportunity, so get reading!




Jess may get another youth potion at some point if I remember. Her alchemy and logic skill will be useful for a long while yet.



Betabee: Off to prom?
Steven: Yep. Here's hoping to goes well!



Betabee: How did it go?
Steven: I was voted prom king, but didn't find a date.
Betabee: That's disappointing.
Steven: Tell me about it. At least I've only had to deal with high school politics for one chapter.



Steven: Dresser?
Betabee: Dresser.



Betabee: I can't believe I didn't see it before. An Afro suits Steven perfectly!



Betabee: Though my wardrobe creation skills are still questionable.
Steven: It's not that bad.
Betabee: I'm so glad I have your vote of support.



Steven: So, when do I get to move out of this room?
Betabee: When you move out.
Steven: Wonderful. When can I move out?
Betabee: When you're  level 3 scientist or when your parents are happy enough.
Steven: Then can I become a doctor?
Betabee: I'll see what can be arranged.



And to end the chapter, we have a lighthearted picture you would never see outside the sims- have you ever seen a deer skipping through the town centre? I certainly haven't.
