Scarlet Shayde is our founder. she's a witch and our alchemy super maxer in terms of both skill, career and life time wish. She achieved all three before she became an adult.

Screenshot-11.jpg

She befriended Agnes Crumplebottom who was not a witch but did get around town via broom

Screenshot-22.jpg

and who replaced the basic black with yellow and turned her hand to painting, sculpting, photographing, cooking and writing.

Screenshot-23.jpg

Using her crafted elixirs, Scarlet went out and made a bunch of friends ...

Screenshot-18.jpg

One of whom was much more than just friends ...

Screenshot-34.jpg

... and became Mr Ethan Shayde.

Two more helpers - Parker and Kaylynn Langerak - joined the household,

Parker took to fishing and to getting friendly with the ladies around town -

Screenshot-44.jpg

While Kaylynn worked hard on getting an A in school so she could graduate well and be a very qualified sculptor, painter and photographer.

Screenshot-36.jpg
Screenshot-50.jpg

She succeeded in becoming class valedictorian and after a visit to the household's brain enhancement machine, picked up a fifth trait.

Firstly Scarlet, and then Agnes fell pregnant and gave birth to nooboos.

Screenshot-49.jpg

Scarlet gave birth to Sky and Agnes gave birth to Cobolt and the ladies around town visited by Parker fell pregnant as well.

All of this and Scarlet isn't even yet an adult.

My only complaint about alchemy is that it goes by too fast, but that's probably good for a founder. Plus you're not distracted for toddler training.

It's always good to have a new dynasty to read. I like Scarlet's look, that hair!

Entirely my aim with the founder's skill - something easy and fast that can be done before kids are born.

Yay, finally it got under way. Been checking back like a hundred times :)

I knew that if I was going to get it underway, I needed to at least post the starting thread for it. This way hopefully I can continue on with it. I'm playing it during the week and posting to the story on the weekends.

Hope I don't disappoint! The hair, oh yes, I liked that design, I just use a variety of different colours on the four settings we're allowed to adjust, and use the advanced colour picked thing they provide.

Best of luck with this. I wish alchemy had more opportunities available, but otherwise it's a great skill for a founder and provides so much assistance for future generations.

Thanks KRae.



Sky had her birthday and became a toddler!
Screenshot-54.jpg
Later on, she'd have a change in clothes, but here she is ... she has the pointed ears of her mother.
Screenshot-59.jpg

Scarlet taught Sky to walk ...
Screenshot-62.jpg

and potty ...
Screenshot-67.jpg

Kaylnn took over the duties when it came to learning to talk ...
Screenshot-72.jpg

Until Sky got tuckered out ...
Screenshot-75.jpg

And went beddy byes.
Screenshot-77.jpg

Scarlet and Ethan likewise were sleeping
Screenshot-78.jpg

We got a new member of the household, which showed us what two of their 'unknown special seeds' were, methinks.
Screenshot-80.jpg

While Parker Langerak just continued to fish away day and night ... handing over the perfect fishes that were caught over to Cobolt for safe keeping
Screenshot-76.jpg

Next up ... continuing toddler life, a new job and a special new 'friend' for Parker.

On waking up, Sky went and posed for her photograph!
Screenshot-61.jpg

Sky then went to potty all by herself, cause she's a big girl.
Screenshot-89.jpg

Before sitting with dadda Ethan "Dadda has to call Nana" "Dadda call Nana"
Screenshot-81.jpg

and mumma Scarlet "Who loves Sky?" "Mumma Scarlet love Sky!"
Screenshot-91.jpg

to learn how to talk. Ethan sat down with Sky to read about painting with her ...
Screenshot-97.jpg

Parker had sons and daughters with ladies around the Valley, but beyond taking part in the male part of the process1, had never seen any of his offspring, so he snuck in hugs and cuddles with Cobolt whenever he could ...
Screenshot-98.jpg

Scarlet has been offered 2 opportunities, the first one was the alchemic mastery opportunity, which she completed easily, the next one was the extreme life insurance opportunity, which was due to be completed on Saturday week 3. By Saturday morning, the deathflower bush was in the 'growing' stage - which goes to show how spoilt I have been with the swift grow stations. So that opp was cancelled and Scarlet got a rabbithole job.
Screenshot-101.jpg

Please welcome Officer Krupke, I mean Officer Shayde.
Screenshot-102.jpg

Then the birthdays, two in one day! Firstly Ethan took Cobolt to his cake so he could become a toddler ...
Screenshot-103.jpg

Then Scarlet made her way to her own cake to become a full adult and instantly entered a midlife crisis2 ...
Screenshot-109.jpg

The one brought on by the game, not the life time reward, of course. :)

Makeovers for the kids up next.

Notes
1 By 'male part of the process' I mean visiting the potential mother, throwing a Jar of Potent Friendship at her, then taking her for a tour of one of the locations around the value that allows tours, and getting friendly in the appropriate location 2 or 3 or 4 times before strutting around. He's got four kids so far with four different mothers, the fifth one hasn't had a production yet ... so he's moved onto number six. He has three sons and a daughter (a toddler and 3 nooboos), and he hasn't seen any of them. Too bad Erin Kennedy became an elder before he could befriend her.

2 In picture 10, you'll see the cake and the slice of cake on the table behind the celebrants. Sky aged up to toddler on Friday week 3. Scarlet and Cobolt on Saturday week 3. I kind of left Scarlet and Cobolt until early evening, as I wanted Scarlet to get her new job first and her to be in her uniform at her birthday. So, I literally had them do the birthday for Cobolt, waited for sparkles etc to go, and went in to move cake for the Scarlet birthday. Kaylynn had already picked up her slice, but none of the others had, so I paused, moved the cake, set up the new one and threw the second party. I think it was just on 7pm game time that they had the party. :D

Thanks Nindigo :)

Not a story update as such, just an author update.

It is a long weekend here in Queensland this weekend. Unlike most other states, it isn't Labour Day, but rather the Queen's Birthday.

In any case I am at the beach in Redcliffe...
Redcliffe Beach.jpg
And had dinner on my first night at Yabbey Road,
Yabbey Road - fish and chippery.jpg
where they encourage all to 'give peas a chance', remind us that 'all you need is cod', that they are open '8 days a week', that if you order from them you won't have 'a hard day's night' and that all fish is served with a side of lennon.

I'll be back to the Shaydes next week. :)

My apologies for forcing you to stand on your heads/your side to see them the right way around.

Parker Langerak has been very productive!

He has so far
- caught enough fish to present his own private aquarium - too bad that wasn't his life time wish
- grown enough perfect plants for his own perfect garden - too bad that wasn't his life time wish
- woohooed in more than five different locations with more than five different ladies around Sunset Valley to become a Master Romancer - and that is his life time wish!

He took the friendship potions made by Scarlet and flung them at the ladies who swooned into his arms and then took them for tours of the town hall, the theatre, the military base, and two of the supernatural rabbitholes. But he was so dedicated to his role that he didn't stop there ... he went back to the town theatre for several one night only 'return engagements'.

Parker Langerak's family.jpg
The first of the ladies he chose to be with was Emma Hatch, and the game still recognises the two of them as being in a relationship. The above shows all the ladies he's successfully had babies with, he is best friends with all these ladies. Claire Ursine's daughter is now in high school so Sandi would either be in high school or out of high school now a swell. There are a couple he tried for baby with that don't seem to have worked out for him.

So yeah, when they get older a lot more pictures for children of original townies will be included :P

Congrats to Parker and your hard work. At least some of those pairings are things we've never seen before or maybe even again.

I hope your vacation was nice and SAFE.
