Ruth and Eva as besties who hate each other is pretty amusing.
While I'm very sad to see Leona pass away, I'm glad she will still have a clone and ghostly presence in this legacy  :=)

@Alex, I certainly hope so.
@hazelnut and @Malley, Their traits are kinda a mess and just get messier.
@Playalot , Cleo didn't pick up Leona's evil trait, but she still has one more chance.
@PeregrineTook , Leona's ghost hasn't been very active yet, but there may well be a chain of clones.

The triplets’ teen birthday is a blazing success.


Ruth’s traits are now Grumpy, Evil, Good Sense of Humor, and Schmoozer. Her relationship had become so poor with her parents that she had to use a jar of friendship to get anyone to teach her to drive.


Mitch’s traits are Athletic, Eccentric, Hates the Outdoors, and Dislikes Children. Oh boy.


Last but not least, we have Eva – Heavy Sleeper, Perceptive, Evil, Technophobe. And you started out so promising.


Ruth did finally learn to drive using Breandan’s old squad car. She should probably get used to riding in a cop car but maybe in the back seat.


No, Eva is not upgrading this science station. This is pure sabotage.


Cleo, are you responsible for that booby trap?
Cleo: Maybe, I honestly don’t remember.


Hey, Mitch, whatcha making?
Mitch: Don’t know, but if I did I’m sure it would go faster.


The scare squad is on the prowl.


Fritz is now an astronaut and thinks vague, sciency thoughts.
Hey it’s 2am. Go get some sleep.
Fritz: Someone made me drink a potent envigorating elixir. I’m off to break space rocks.

Love the Scare Squad :D How on earth are you going to choose an heir out of those options?

At this point it's between Ruth and Mitch. I'll have to see their final traits and LTWs first. Eva is driving me bonkers. An evil technophobe is a nightmare.

Good luck!  (I have a feeling you're going to need it.  Either that or a miracle :P)

Team Ruth.  I think the interesting balance of her bad traits with the good ones will make every Sims in town either love or hate her with no in between.  Plus, scare squad is just awesome!  Excellent job catching the shot of the tiptoe twins.

Thanks for commenting everyone. These traits don't exactly scream heir, do they.
@PeregrineTook , Thanks for the input. Ruth has already chosen her LTW, Swimming in Cash, and completed it when I finally remembered to collect the rent for their properties. I think she would make a wonderful school teacher.

As a Young Adult, Cleo’s traits are Absent-Minded, Grumpy, Perfectionist, Eccentric, and Snob. She’s making good progress on her Renaissance Sim LTW.


Even though it won’t count toward the legacy score, Anna painted Cleo’s portrait. Everyone who actually lives in the house will get their portrait hung in the basement.


Mitch’s love of video games has earned him a new nerd trait. He rolled Neat. Well at least that’s useful.


He built his first time machine and decided to go to the past. He came back with the betrayed moodlet. It must have something to do with the adult vampire he’s suddenly good friends with.


Ruth has also gained a new nerd trait but by socializing with nerds, not by playing video games. She’s been working on her charisma skill and, amazingly, makes friends easily. She rolled Genius as her new trait. The world should be very afraid.


Leona has interrupted the family’s morning routine for the first time post-mortem.
Ruth: Eww, you’re so gross.
C’mon, you’ve wished to see the ghost of pretty much everyone you’ve ever met.
Ruth: Did I say gross was a bad thing?


The triplets ran into prom.
Mitch: Quick, before somebody realizes we should all probably be grounded!

Mitch was voted prom king and got a babysitter romantic interest. Eva was voted queen and ditto about the RI. None of them got into a fight. What?

Fritz became an elder at one of Fiona O’Reilly’s many parties.
Nice duds, dude.
Fritz: You don’t always have to talk, you know.


Anna became an elder but refused to pose until her hair was dyed.


The little Doe house looks deceptively peaceful nestled here in lovely Dragon Valley. Tomorrow the triplets grow up. Perhaps the quiet is the town collectively holding its breath.

I'm really surprised there were no fights at prom! I guess the RI's kept them busy!!  :P

And so Dragon Valley holds its breath in anticipation of the coming surge of Ruth's awesomeness.  (And I'm hoping the "gross isn't a bad thing" philosophy won't influence her spouse selection).
Team Ruth.

Eva is such an awesome name, I just have to choose Eva as heir (and yes, if I was playing them, I'd totally go for her, have her try for baby straight away and have her consume magic jelly beans non-stop (after baby is born)). :)

What a novel idea @ Deklitch, but perhaps she should feed them to her spouse.
@PeregrineTook , do to trauma at our business today, I only got to play their adult birthday today, but I'm tipping to the Ruth camp myself.
@Playalot , I guess they didn't need to fight at prom. They do enough at home.
@Malley, I really feel for the next generation. I hope Fritz and Anna live long enough to keep any nooboos alive.

Maybe it's not so much that none of them got into a fight as that none of them got caught.

I think I'm Team Ruth too, but mainly because I'm shallow and I like her colouring.

@Alex, I guess that makes me shallow, too. I really like Ruth's appearance.
@dontmindme , Eva is irked. Hold onto your electronics, she wants to smashed them.
@Magpie2012 , Mitch thanks you and would love to clean your house.

The triplets had their birthday, and Eva became an exotically beautiful woman. Her final traits are Heavy Sleeper, Perceptive, Evil, Technophobe, and Eccentric. Her LTW is becoming the Emperor of Evil. Unfortunately, Eva will not be heir and will not be completing her wish. Eva is evil, but not in a fun way.


Mitch’s traits are now Athletic, Eccentric, Hates the Outdoors, Dislikes Children, Neat (nerd), and Diva. His LTW is Monster Maker. Everything is already in place for him to complete his wish. Mitch will not be heir because, honestly, his skin is so red it makes me squint.


So our heir, tada, Ruth Doe – Grumpy, Evil, Good Sense of Humor, Schmoozer, Genius (nerd), and Frugal. Her LTW, Swimming in Cash, has already been completed. Ruth’s odd mix of traits makes her very amusing. Sneak up, Scare, Compliment, Tell Joke.


Eva got her portrait painted, got a job at the criminal warehouse, and moved to a little, vine-covered cottage close to work. She loves fishing so this is a good location.


Mitch soon reached level 10 in inventing and was asked to help the scientists create a mystery invention. He had everything they required in his backpack. Mitch must be psychic. Here he is coming out of the facility ready to hit the inventing bench. He’s wearing his work clothes from his video game developing job.


Ruth’s task has been locating a suitable spouse. There are mostly elders in town now and the only interesting looking sims are either related or genetically related. Ruth invited over a babysitter best friend from high school. Like they do, Christopher Kendall aged from teen to young adult on his way over.


Christopher was very cooperative, and they were soon married. His traits are Slob, Flirty, Bookworm, Irresistible, and Family Oriented. His LTW was Master of Mysticism for some reason. Since that wish has already been used (Darron), as soon as he had 10,000 LTH points it was changed to Professional Author which was one of those offered.


Morning sickness has struck, but really only once. My question is how long will the family keep their interesting genetics while marrying babysitters?


Ruth: For the love of Carl, why do I feel compelled to watch this? I can feel my IQ dropping.


And the results….

Christopher’s family oriented kicks in big time. If he can only stop flirting with Anna and Cleo, he will be a good father.

Mitch created his third monster and completed his Lifetime Wish.


Mitch: I am so getting my Dislikes Children self out of here.
Goodbye, Mitch, and thanks for being triplet prevention.


We soon have a double birthday.
This is Roland Doe, a Neurotic Loner. He has his mama’s features.


And his sister, Hannah, Insane and Excitable. You know rolled traits have been bad when these look good.

At this point the family’s score is at 60, but I really don’t know if that’s good or bad and I care even less. Edt: Make that 72. I forgot to add the completed LTW.

Both twins are adorable - Roland especially, I think.

Or maybe it just means you've been Simming too long.  They look good to me, too ;).

Hmmm, I'm up in the air about the next heir.  Either could end up really interesting with those traits.
Genetics-wise, have you considered abducting proposing to and marrying a foreigner?  Perhaps from that foreign land of University?  Or France.

@Alex , The no shoes dress code is rather unique.
@hazelnut , It's amazing what we've come to accept as good traits.
@Playalot , The toddlers seem to take after their mother's side of the family. In other words, not boring.
@PeregrineTook , That exotic land of University may be their best bet, but the long load screen is scary.

The twins learned their skills quickly and had plenty of time for play.
Hannah: The laptop’s broken and Daddy’s trying to repair it. I hope he survives.
Me too, Hannah, me too.


Roland: You’re right, the little people are much tastier than the blocks.


Ruth and Christopher have a wonderful relationship. I’m not sure how, but I’m grateful.


Now this is the Ruth we know and love. Go to a party at the O’Reilly’s, who into gen 6 are still alive, insult the hosts and tell jokes. Don’t forget to scare them on your way out.


Eva finds Ruth’s form of evilness quite boring. If I had Pets, she would probably be doing a Cruella Deville by now.


Christopher completed his Professional Author LTW quickly, and decided a job outside the house would be a good idea. He’ll start on Monday in the science career. Fritz will be at his astronaut job and Ruth will be teaching, but the toddlers will be okay at home with Anna and Cleo for a couple  of days. Right?


Wrong. Sunday night, at age 90, Anna left with Grim.


For some reason, it was especially difficult for Cleo.


Leona autonomously comforted her clone. Death seems to have improved Leona’s personality.


Fritz found himself carrying around Anna’s guitar. It made him feel closer to her.


The next night Fritz was scheduled to work until 1am. He left early at 10:40pm. Uhoh. Rest in Peace, Fritz Doe, age 92. Your steadying presence will be missed.

Still no preference on the next heir, but enjoying the current one!  Ruth's hateful pleasantness is a delight!
