Chapter 1: A Beginning


Dude: Oh for crying out loud! What happened this time?
You don't want to know.
Dude: Actually, you're right. I don't.
Are you grumpy at me?
Dude: No, I'm furious and I'm going out.
Umm... you are technically 'out' right now. I mean there is nowhere to actually go 'into' so that would make you 'out'.
Dude:<Through clenched teeth> I'm going to the park.





I knew you'd feel better in the fresh air.
Dude: Go away.
Oh what? It's not even chapter 2 and you're already telling me to go away.
Dude: Ok, fair point. How about you sit just a little bit away and let me concentrate on skilling up eh? I mean... it's not like I get to keep my awesome skills each time you stuff up.
Oh! Err, right... <mumble>. K then.





Dude: Nice to meet you too. Care to play?





Dude: Hmmm, that was a good move!





Oh you won your first ever game! Cool!
Dude: Thank you.
Gardener: Well played young man!





Dude: Oh you like chess too? Awesome!
Gardener: I do, and doing things right. I always say "do it right the first time".
Dude: <snort> Did you hear that watcher?
No.
Dude: Did so.






Dude: Would you like to be part of this dynasty? I could really do with someone who likes to do things right.
<Sulkily>Oh very funny.
Gardener: I'd love to! That would be fantastic!





So, Grady, welcome aboard!
Grady: Thanks.
Oh... did ya lose Winston? <snort> Perhaps you should practice doing things right, eh?
Grady: That's a rather snippy tone there missy, perhaps you should try being a little more lady like, might make things run a little smoother.
<Stunned> Err, I... pardon me?
Grady: You're forgiven. I know stress these days makes you younger generation a little hasty with your words.
<Completely stunned>





Dude: <Smug> So, did you have a nice chat with Grady?
Shut up.
Dude: <Snicker>





Grady: So lets establish a few ground rules for keeping things civil.
Dude: "Ground" rules, get it? lol
Umm.. well usually what I say goes.
Grady: That's no way to run a democracy is it?
It's not really a democracy. I mean...I'm the boss.
Grady: Well, it's a good thing I'm here now to sort out this mess then, isn't it.
Well...
Dude: I'm not sure you are in a position to refute that last statement watcher.
*sigh* I think I liked my last dynasty better.





I think you probably need to know...
Grady: My dear, I do know. But consider how Winston is feeling. You mustn't ride rough-shot all over him all the time. After all it's him that shoulder's the loss each time you ... Well, enough. Let's enjoy some fishing eh?
Yeah, I like fishing actually. *Sigh*





Grady: Time for a change watcher.
Woah! You're pretty spritely for an old... er, elder sim!
Grady: It's all about taking good care of yourself really. Come on! Race you!





You kinda remind me of my granddad.
Grady: <grin> Do I? Well, I hope that's a compliment!
Lol, yes, actually. It is. I think you'll probably be good for us. Dude and I are a bit grumpy with each other at the moment.
Grady: You probably need some space and then when things have calmed down, a good honest chat to clear the air.
I suspect you're right.





Home time?
Dude: Yeah, I'm sleep walking.





Nite everyone. Oh! you're gardening now Grady?
Grady: Just for a short while then I'll turn in. Nite watcher.

Chapter 2: Finding the Pace



Wow, you must have worked quite late last night Grady! The garden looks great.
Grady: Thank you. It is nice to see some greenery here in the desert. Have you had a chat with Winston yet?
Umm, no... he's been quite busy.








Grady: I know dear, but you have things that need saying.
I know, I will. I'm just waiting for the right time, that's all.




Wait! How do you know that I've things that need saying?
Grady: You don't get to my age my dear without noticing these things. Don't leave it too long, like all things even this has it's own pace.
Oh.




So Dude, I've been thinking...
Dude: Plumbob! Don't sneak up on me like that!





...So anyway. I think that this time you should have more say in what happens. You know like, umm.. helpers and spouses and houses...and skills... and ....Are you listening?
Dude: Hmmm?
You've been standing with that look on your face for about an hour now. I'm seriously getting freaked out!





O.K. Least you're moving now. Like what were you even doing?
Dude: Beats me... I just sort of got stuck thinking about what you were saying.
Oh, good come-back. You didn't hear a word I said.
Dude: Actually I did. I'm glad you're starting to see things my way, you know. It's pretty tough being bossed around all day long, doing stuff I don't even want to do. You need to chill. Take your time. "This" doesn't need to be done in a day you know <grin>. We do have the rest of my life to get it sorted. Darn, this is trickier than it looks!





Worth it though?
Dude: Yeah, it's pretty tasty!






Cool, it'll help you skill up quicker.
Dude: Cool! Thanks.
You're welcome.
Dude: So, we good?
Yeah, we're good.





Wow! Where did you learn that move?
Dude: Grady.
Huh, there's more to that guy then he let's on.
Dude: Agree.





Dude: Tell you what though, that drinks got me wired right up! Woo!









Grady? Where did you learn how to play chess?
Grady: Shang Simla. I was lucky enough to have spent time in a monastery there learning deep secrets and... well I can't tell you anymore or I'd have to kill you.
Lol, that explains it all then.





Dude: See ya tomorrow, I'm calling it a day.
Nite then.




A few hours later:
You're up mega early "Yawn". What's the time?
Dude: About 4.30ish.
Gosh... you're really taking this whole skilling thing seriously.
Dude: Hmm... it's quite addictive once you get started.





Wow, was that like ... did you just... how did you win in just eight moves?
Dude: Smothered Mate, Queens pawn version really.
I'm impressed!





Perhaps time for getting dressed... unless you want the neighbours seeing your pj's.
Dude: Hmm... yeah. K. Just finishing this up.





Dude: Why should you never buy a house from a chess player?
Grady: Don't know?
Dude: Because they take ages to move!
Grady: Lol, good one!
Hmm... I had lunch with a friend yesterday. How did I know they played chess?
Dude: Dunno?
Took her an hour to pass the salt!
Grady: *Groan*
Dude: Well... I'm heading out, wanna come along?
Sure.
Grady. Sounds good.





Dude: Hang on a sec, just need to say hi to an old friend.
Actually, we might go ahead. See you there.
Grady: Where is 'there' exactly?
Oh, the gym. That's what Dude means when he says he's heading out.
Grady: Ah!

I love your dynamic with Dude! I also love Grady keeping the balance. Can't wait for your next update  :D

Third time's the charm! And I was going to say, about your 2nd, that it's better to have someone unrelated to the founder work on populating the town so that their children and grandchildren can be spouses. I noticed that we can see Winston's face -- are we going to be able to see your immortals this time?

MarianT beat me to it. I was going to say third time's the charm too.

Anyway I'm glad you gave it a third  shot with Winston, or maybe I should say I'm glad he gave you a third chance ;)

Great start.

Sorry, I missed something. Playalot failed her Dynasty? What happened? Did I miss something? (You can PM me if you don't want to clog up the thread.) Sorry that fell through - it seems that Sims 4 makes it almost impossible to get through an Immortal Dynasty without rebooting once. I thought it would be easier than Sims 3 ImDynasty (since we don't have to watch people like hawks to avoid overlapping skills and there is no life fruit).
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.

Wow! The things that can happen while one is away. I've been off the forum because I've been traveling and never imagined two dynasties could go down while I was out of the loop. Poor Dude :'( Glad to see you're still going strong and best of luck with this dynasty!  ;D

First let me say thank you for already reading! It was so nice this morning to wake up and find all your comments.  :) I had dreamed of my first dynasty and had woken up a little bummed out! Especially since I had moved my folder on Photobucket and so breaking all the links so I can't even go back for a visit! *Sigh* Certainly been a trying few days.

@Cristina , thanks, I figured Dude and I were out of sorts so we needed Grady to sort us out!
@MarianT , I certainly hope so! Yeah, now that I know that rule it's obvious. I'm still thinking about how to manage the population... luckily a lot of my houses have filled up this time *Yay* but I'm not sure just how I will keep this up. Still, It's early days so I can figure this out as I go.
@Ferretmania , Thank you! Really pleased you like it so far.
@judewright , Thanks! I'm going to need it. I miss Dude's money from painting already but I wanted to try a different approach.
@SLF, very true, very true!  :)
@EtnaFan666 , first dynasty I accidently completed the bodybuilder aspiration with Zack as I had him jog around for some screenshots, forgetting that the last stage of the BB aspiration doesn't include mentoring anymore. 2nd attempt I misunderstood a fundamental rule but luckily it was caught very quickly by Nettlejuice and so saved me weeks of playing etc only to find out it was flawed from the start! Whew! yeah... It is easy to accidently so something wrong and so fail a sims4 dynasty. I have been close a few times to stuffing it up for sure.
@Shewolf13 , Thanks! I'm glad grady's character is working.  :)
@Wolffie , Thank you - going to take all the luck I can get! yeah hopefully 'third's the charm' comes true.

*edited, I forgot to mention about seeing Dude's face. Well, seeing as you all already know him it seemed a bit trite to hide his face. However... with the next generation...  :P
