Pascal Curious


Vidcund Curious


Lazlo Curious

Common Bloodline: Mansion Baron

I chose Mansion Baron for a couple of reasons. I didn’t really want to play occults or retail and I wanted an even playing field. I also wanted to be able to freely choose collections. Since the Mansion Bloodline is possibly the easiest to achieve, and in honor of the backstory of the Curious brothers, I've added some additional requirements to keep it interesting:

Founders’ traits will be based on their TS2 personalities.
Each founder must marry an alien.
Each lot must have a rocket capable of traveling to Sixam.
Each lot must maintain a garden with all 4 alien plants.
Each lot must have a telescope and satellite dish. The satellite dish may only be used to contact aliens. Any resulting alien babies must be kept.
Founders and heirs must max the Logic and Rocket Science skills before the next heir can move out.
Toddlers must achieve Topnotch Toddler status.
All heirs must choose the genius trait as children. The other two traits will be randomized.
Children must complete whiz kid + one other aspiration.
Heirs must complete scouts either as children or teens. Teens must also reach Level 3 of a part-time job.
Helpers must be related by blood.
Museum collections must be collectibles (no crafted items).
Heirs must be good friends with all 3 founders.

Haha, I can't help my enthusiasm for your new project, especially considering your long-standing affection for the Curious brothers.
Your founders look great as do their traits and aspirations.
The additional bloodline requirements you've added are fantastic and will keep you from getting bored. 😁

Pascal Curious (Founder): Week 1 Summary

bandicam 2020-03-11 21-42-00-233.jpg

Pascal got a job right away in the Science career. He was promoted twice in his first week.

He invited Vidcund and Lazlo to Alien Night at Rattlesnake Juice Bar in the hope that they would all meet potential spouses.

Pascal met this lovely, Isis Foreman. They became quick friends and soon after, Isis agreed to move in and become Pascal's girlfriend. That's as far as they progressed because Pascal was scrambling to try to get his rocket fully upgraded. He just did run out of time, so it looks like Vid and Lazlo will have to try their luck at alien night if they didn't meet someone during Pascal's week.

Pascal's Week 1 Stats:

LOT: Slipshod Mesquite

Career: Scientist L3
Mansion Baron: 0/4
Rewards: 0/4
Parties: 0/3
Portrait: NO

Heir: NO

Logic Skill: 4/10
Rocket Science Skill: 9/10
Alien plants: 1/4 (UFO plant)
Upgraded Rocket: NO
Telescope: YES
Satellite Dish: NO

Vidcund Curious (Founder): Week 1 Summary

vidcund2_1c.jpg

It turned out that Vidcund hadn't met a suitable spouse when Pascal invited him to Alien Night, so he went back to Rattlesnake Juice Bar Tuesday night to try his luck alone. There were only two undisguised aliens in the bar, Max Hewitt and a female alien that didn't interest Vidcund. Max's traits are rather unfortunate: Child of the Islands, Unflirty, and Hates Children. Vidcund decided he'd keep Max in mind, but he felt he could probably do better.

Vidcund wanted to get a job in the Scientist career, but much to his disappointment, he found that there had only been one opening in his field of expertise and Pascal had secured that job. So, he joined the Military with the thought that he could still study aliens and strange phenomena by becoming a Covert Operative.

There was a young man at Rattlesnake during Alien Night who Vidcund had also seen there when he went with Pascal. When asked his job, he replied "unemployed" rather than "bar regular." Could he be an alien, but in disguise? After work, Vidcund invited Mason Reaves over and determined to get to know him better. After becoming Best Friends and a few back and forth flirts, Vidcund noticed a slight pink glow around Mason. Success! Mason is Ambitious, an Insider, and a Kleptomaniac. The Klepto trait isn't ideal, but it's certainly better than Max's traits.

Mason agreed to become Vidcund's boyfriend and to move in. Mason would have to take a low-level job in the Scientist career and work there at least long enough to be able to construct a satellite dish, but he didn't mind. As long as the job allowed for the promotions that would satisfy his Ambitious trait he would be happy. He could always change jobs later if he wanted to.

After a quite steamy date, Mason decided to make things official. Vidcund enthusiastically accepted and started wedding planning almost immediately.

Vidcund's Week 1 Stats:

LOT: Arid Ridge

Career: Military L3
Mansion Baron: 0/4
Rewards: 0/4
Parties: 0/3
Portrait: NO

Heir: NO

Logic Skill: 6/10
Rocket Science Skill: 8/10
Alien plants: 0/4
Upgraded Rocket: NO
Telescope: YES
Satellite Dish: NO
