Here is my attempt at Boolprop.net's Close Encounter Academy challenge with everyone's favourite Strangervillian, Erwin Pries!

It's written in a casual reporting style. I'm playing for amusement as opposed to points, and have made some amendments for storytelling/plot reasons, but I hope you enjoy!

Side note, I've just seen the trailer for Strangerville where Erwin speaks English, and that voice...  :-*

It's perfect for him. And he just got at least 142% times cuter.

Erwin is in for some interesting times. I'll have to check out the Close Encounter Academy. Pascal Curious's 2nd alien daughter might be a candidate.

@MarianT Thanks for your comment. It would be cool to see a member of the Curious clan undertake this challenge!

Oh my. Obviously Erwin doesn't have a Watcher. No one would inflict that kind of pain upon their poor Sim. :)

It's going to be a while until the next update, but I couldn't keep you all in suspense any longer. Here is your successor to the colander crown!

Just to let you know, all four of Erwin's children are now available on the Gallery.

[If you have any issues with the link, search the Gallery for EA ID bookloverblue, or hashtag #ErwinPries, with the Maxis Curated option turned OFF.]

But which one will wear the colander crown?

You have until 1st February to decide here!

So, I've had a looky-loo at the votes so far.

It's interesting.... very interesting.

Quick question for y'all - which may or may not be for a reason. In the event of a tie, would you want a knockout round, or should I let birth order take precedence?

Furthermore, here's a family portrait with the whole Pries Gen 2 clan - haven't they grown?
(And yes, the poses are the ones from The Sims 4 cover.)

You can now also download the family from the Gallery!

A very quick chapter in which I push Genesis to complete one particular objective.
