Just got caught up with this and wow, those are cute kids. I also think Aura really looks like Jane Doe, not sure what it is, something in the face and lips, I think, but yeah. Good luck to the boys! Out of curiosity, why did you decide to have triplets?

Keeping finished heirs busy is always the challenge.  Heir 1 in my life states dynasty has a piano which I thought would keep him occupied, but I ended up just sticking him in front of the video game console.  He'll spend the entire day there (which keeps him from trying to cook).
All three boys are adorable.  Can't wait to see how they look as they grow.

@dontmindme , I didn't decide to have triplets - no fertility treatment, no elixirs, no kids TV, but I think one of the gnomes may have switched on the kids' music. Then again, sometimes triplets just happen.

@PeregrineTook , I think they need the virtuoso trait to become instrument obsessed, but almost everybody loves video games and the hot tub.

Serious serious toddler envy. That just looked so great... all those little faces and their little feet and their little cute zzz's. *sigh* <Heads back to TS3 for the day> I'm with you though... Jevon's dicing with a pummeling for sure.

I am really enjoying playing the triplets. As much as I can I just let them do what they want. Hermano and Frere choose to play tag and pillow fight together and have become best friends all on their own as children. Presto, our heir, is just bare acquaintances with them.

Birthday x three!
Frere woke up first so got cake first.  He became Rebellious.


Hermano woke up before Presto by this much *my thumb and index finger are practically touching*.
No Frere, his cake is not bigger.  Hermano is now a Genius.


And Presto became predictably Ambitious. Jevon seemed ecstatic at the prospect of no more potty chairs. Hey, Jevon, you’re the one who keeps wanting more kids.


Frere learned to bake.


Hermano learned to play chess.


And Presto learned to stalk cave dwellers.


They all agree,  homework is rubbish.


Elder Jevon: Sacre bleau!

Hey Presto looks fearsome. Would I be right in thinking that a top hat is in his future, Krae?

@Deklitch , I can tell you've been paying attention.
@Tixxis, Maybe the same place those clothes came from.
@Playalot , Elder birthday clothes are the best!
@PeregrineTook , Don't tell him that! He thinks he can.

Now there are three booby trapping teens in the house. No matter where he is, even out in the hot tub, Jevon always catches them.
Presto has become a Natural Born Performer.


Hermano is a Schmoozer.


Frere is now a Natural Cook.


This is our latest pap. Life is good.


Presto is picking up the guitar skill quickly. He needs to learn all the songs.


Science is not coming as easily, but at this point in the dynasty he has limited options.
Presto: It’s kinda fun, but I make a lot of mistakes.

Hermano is demolishing the logic skill, however.

Frere: Goopy carbonara coming right up. I know 25 recipes, but this is my favorite.


Elder Aura: Fingers still work. I’m good to go.


The night before their next birthday the boys hit the hot tub.
Presto: Gears, I’m telling you. It’s all about gears.
Hermano and Frere: Make it stop….please.


Come on, just once more and you will have been on the honor roll for three days. It’s 9am, one of you is going to have to go in first.

Oh those three boys! They are gorgeous to look at and gorgeous together. Let's hope one of them gets into school quickly!

@Playalot , I'd forgotten how much fun triplets can be.

The boys finally made into the school and through their last day of school. They found birthday cakes waiting for them at home.
Presto added Genius to his traits.


Hermano rolled Lucky and headed to the computer to sign up for a career in medicine.


Frere rolled Daredevil and joined the culinary career.


The next day was graduation. Jevon must be hanging onto the undercarriage. Perhaps the SUV would have been a better choice.


Instead of getting a job right away, Presto thought he’d check to see if he was ready for university.
He had 18 credits in either fine arts or medicine and science. More importantly he qualified for a good scholarship. After all, the family is only worth 6 million or so.


He didn’t even bother with getting dressed. He just packed a bag and left to pursue a degree in medicine and science.
Family: Bye, Have fun storming the castle!


When he finally arrived, Presto made a realization. His family’s celebrity had spread far beyond Starlight Shores. He couldn’t go anywhere without someone taking his picture and asking for an autograph. He knew about his dynasty responsibilities and would complete them, but the family’s anonymity was blown. Whatever his many greats grandparents had or had not been hiding from, hiding was no longer possible.


Presto used any spare time he had working on his skill challenges, sometimes even at parties.


Presto, do you think the professor will see your hand waving in that ocean of students?


In a blur of classes and skills, Presto completed his degree and got his grades in the bathroom somehow.
Congrats on that A!

Congrats on the A Presto! But...no other students...at all? ? Wow, I have never ever seen that in TS3. I guess it is because I've never played more that a few generations in one game file. Crazy! In some ways it would be better than the usual 'crush' to get through the doors all the time.

@Nettlejuice , Yup, Presto was such a total suck up that he became best friends with his prof just by going to class.
@dontmindme , Coming right up.

When he got back home, Presto signed up to be a magician.
Presto: I said magician not clown.


Presto got his first gig at the park in town. I don’t think it’s a good omen when the proprietor who hired you dies during your act.


With his second gig scheduled later that day, Presto went back to the park to practice.


When he was on his way to MN8, the camera suddenly panned to this. Farewell, Jevon, age 57, you will be missed.


Grim tried to cheer up the widow. At least Aura got to pummel him.


Presto’s show had barely begun when the camera panned back home. Apparently Aura, age 53, just couldn’t go on.


This time Grim played video games with Frere until he was just too tired.


The show must go on. Presto completed his gig for the tourists.


His next stop was Los Suenos private club where he got his next gig. He stayed to sing karaoke with his elder best friend, Dennis. Please don’t die, Dennis, it’s been a rough enough night already.


One last gig and Presto had levitated himself to level ten completing his last dynasty requirement at 2 days to Adult.


Heir Sixteen
Presto Doe – Heavy Sleeper, Virtuoso, Ambitious, Natural Born Performer, Genius, Loves the Outdoors (degree trait)   LTW – Living in the Lap of Luxury
Maxed Career – Master Magician, level 10 magician
Best Friends – Pierre Woodard, Dennis Clary (thank you for not dying)
Skill Challenges – Master Guitarist, Experienced Experimentalist, Free Range Scientist
Opportunities – Enroll in University, Celebrity Body, Networking is Key, Save the Herding

World Four requirements
All properties purchased and fully upgraded, all buildings purchased
4x4 Collection – Sculptures worth 76,939   Street Art worth 0   Wedding Gifts worth 55,395   Celebrity Gifts worth 29,000 for a total of 161,334
Career Rewards – Sculpting Skill Certificate, Sculptor’s Epic Hero Medal, Simfest Award, Ghost Hunter’s Spirit Medal
Large Tombstones – Vincente Doe, Novella Doe, Chip Doe, Aria Doe
Date Completed      Week 79 Day 7               Family worth 7,354,170
This is the family cemetery. Peanut, the family’s only IF made real, is checking out the IF dolls.


The triplets, hot tubbing in the completed family museum, have decided to live however they want from now on.
Presto: I hope one of our ancestors doesn’t have to pay the price for our decision.
Hermano: You mean like having to found a legacy or something?
Frere: Nah, that’ll never happen.

@Trip , Thanks!
@Deklitch , Thanks! Flip was probably my favorite simply because he made such great faces. He was an acrobat so that was probably my favorite performance job. Also with liquid job booster it went really fast. Job performance is increased by working out. Singing and magic don't have anything comparable.
