Chapter 3.3

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 14-50-54-67

And we’re back!  Belladonna comes home and starts up the last club meeting while Opal heads off to work.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 15-18-07-29

It takes a few hours because she they were only gaining 2 points and it was just boring.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 15-24-25-94

Opal brought home a promotion.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 15-27-21-18

Belladonna did quit her level 8 career to join the Entertainer career.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 15-56-30-28

Then it was time to switch aspiration now that we know she can be exempt from Beyond Cheesy long enough to eat a Selvadoradian meal.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 15-58-32-93

Belladonna has now greeted and had two Selvadoradian type friendly conversations with every single person above.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 15-59-07-04

Which is what was needed for maxing this.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-00-13-47

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-03-25-23

Nothing new to report except this is a new tomb for me and I have been doing this adventure for eons it seems like.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-06-00-57

She had to backtrack to the Baths because I thought locating the tomb would clear out the Find a hidden Path.  It was this one instead.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-12-27-60

Then she backtracked to town to assemble relics, but had to refine crystals first.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-14-15-25

Caleb and Victoria are great-grandparents to Theo and Emmalyn.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-18-20-74

Now it’s back to the tomb.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-20-20-04

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-21-50-32

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-25-11-92

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-28-05-77

Bella did clear the tomb, but she was so miserable.  She was cursed several times over and even set on fire.  She arrives home in her bathing suit (because she had to swim out of the tomb) and she was very glad that she is immune to the cold right about now.

1 tomb down, 2 to go.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-29-27-40

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-29-42-76

Opal:  Mother, why?

Belladonna:  Remember all the club gatherings you have been ruining lately?  Consider this  your punishment.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-30-24-60

Opal then starts singing about her dark cloud friend.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 14-30-57-10

Robin does get a promotion finally.  Also, it has been 4 days and her aspiration still says 11/14.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-32-30-57

Rachel has a couple of days off, so she heads to Granite Falls.

Rachel: It’s winter dumbass.

Shit.  I forgot about that.  Oh well,  She can look around at least.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-36-03-56

There are some bugs to gather up.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-37-57-64

A few hours later, she heads to the deep woods.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-38-58-67

She finds a couple of harvestable plants.  Plus we just got the pop up that it was Winter.

The skipped Harvestfest and all other holidays so far during the last season.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-41-09-08

The bugs are snow covered (big surprise), but the Dragon Dragonfly is my favorite of them all.  I am so glad I spotted him.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-49-34-15

Rachel then makes her way to the hermit area.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-51-16-28

Roasts some beetles.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-52-44-12

Eats 10 plants and ends up with every disease in the world.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-54-34-44

Greets and befriends the hermit.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-56-13-48

Has a snack (not the hermit).

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 16-58-47-18

Finds more bugs.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-05-20-72

NOO!!!

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-08-05-97

The vacation will end in 4 hours, so Rachel made a snowpal and then heads home.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-11-39-66

She is forced to read the herbalism book because she doesn’t have ingredients to practice on the grill.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-12-28-24

And she makes it to level 3 (from level 2) and bolts.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-14-53-55

Opal:  Yes, I need to book a trip.  K thanx.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-15-53-87

Opal knows that the best way to get rid of a curse is to pay money to the statue.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-18-30-48

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-24-21-70

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-27-36-78

Another tomb done, and yes she did get caught on fire again.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-30-20-19

Use the relic 2/5 times.

Opal:  Goddammit.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-30-47-22

Opal:  Can you curse my mother in retaliation?

Statue: <silence>

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-32-21-07

Bella refines more gems for her other relics.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-34-43-84

Opal:  MOM!  Stop!

Belladonna;  Last time, I promise.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-34-55-82

Opal:  I’m going to make your life miserable.

Bella:  Too late.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-36-29-24

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-38-21-19

Opal:  Yes, curse everyone else!  Wooo!

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-39-14-21

One more trip and Bella will be free!

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-49-50-64

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-56-13-18

Opal has done all her mean interactions and her skeleton moodlet has said 0 minutes for 8 hours.  Robin is still at 11/14.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-59-44-72

I even found out why Rachel hasn’t had a promotion in 7 days.  Whoops.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 18-05-53-26

I have no clue what she is afflicted with, but she still won’t read long enough to get a skill point.  It’s driving me nuts.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 18-06-08-70

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 18-07-54-09

She told 3 comedy routines to her daughters.  Yes, Opal is STILL a skeleton.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 18-08-00-24

At least she’s happy about the whole world right now.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 18-08-37-50

Belladonna completes her aspiration.  She will head back for that last tomb next.  She will stay in the comedy career until she tops it and then she can go live her life outside the house.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 17-13-12-51

At this point,  I cheated the last thing.  It has been 7 days of being stuck and I think doubling that requirement before cheating was payment enough.

I am hoping that reloading the game fixes Opal.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-19-30-35

I really hope I load into the game with a normal Opal.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-23-35-45

It worked!

Also, I am back after 9 days away from the computer.  I needed to unplug and I also playing Dragon Quest XI and literally all my free time was spent on that.  I am not done yet, but I did hit 115 hours on my save.  I am post game grinding levels.  After hitting level 80, I needed a break for the last 19 levels.

Anyway, I may have forgotten what was going on.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-36-45-78

Rachel is left with reading the herbalism skill book until we can get the snow to thaw in Granite Falls.  She will also need to plant her collected seeds, but she has a couple that she cannot figure out until she is a higher level.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-44-08-04

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-46-17-21

Them standing around chatting means it was some sort of holiday.  I’m sure they all got it completed.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-48-15-31

Belladonna heads to the jungle one last time.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-50-08-89

Now that we know to keep her logic skill up, Rachel got a promotion.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-51-53-79

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-53-31-56

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-53-40-75

Another one bites the dust!

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 19-57-00-50

And a bee attack on her way out.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 20-13-57-14

Back home, Robin has a shit load done on her newest case.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 20-15-50-83

The suspect was apprehended.

TS4_x64 2018-09-03 20-17-07-52

Suspect:  Hold on, I gotta post this selfie.

It was an intense interrogation, but Robin prevailed.  She did get a promotion finally.  I think she’s level 6 or 7.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 20-31-56-45

No one is getting promotions again even though their requirements are done and work performance says excellent.  Opal heads to the Wishing Well that has been in the backyard for 30 years and donates $5,000 and wishes for a promotion.  She is immediately given one.  Belladonna and Rachel will get one the next time they go to work.

Robin is not allowed to wish for a promotion.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 20-43-34-04

Victoria invites Opal on an outing and we drag the whole family along.  The goal is for Opal to watch someone die.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 20-52-34-76

Robin’s goal is to officially start her Serial Romantic aspiration.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 20-53-42-73

Opal joins the whole group in basketball, but sadly no one is dying.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 20-55-24-59

The bartender is an elder and I started to plan out his death.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 20-58-20-49

But Opal has to befriend him first.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 20-59-03-59

That ends when she was to upset about her stink to go on stargazing with him.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-02-37-91

Robin has a bright idea.

She started a sex club.  She can now screw whoever she wants without the cumbersome relationship crap that goes with it.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-04-52-48

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-05-37-25

She also bites the bullet and starts pregnancy #1.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-08-01-83

She tries to line up another guy.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-09-01-99

But she kicks him out of the club for not falling for her charms.

Robin:  Get out, you’re taking up space and I need a good rotation of men for my 10 kisses.

She’s not even to the 10 kisses milestone yet.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-19-53-51

Belladonna finally goes to work after several days off and gets her promotion.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-28-23-28

The next day is New Year’s, so no work for anyone.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-40-53-94

Johnny, the poor sap, has it bad for Robin.  Robin is just using him for the two dates she needs.  They were both gold medals.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-42-10-22

Caleb walked in and saw Robin’s tummy and blew a gasket.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-42-37-21

Caleb:  Johnny is my age, there is no reason for him to be with my granddaughter.

Says the vampire who wed our founder  who was 100’s of years younger than him.

Caleb:  That was different.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-44-42-38

They took date #2 to the lounge to get away from the disapproving Caleb.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-48-57-99

Who then called his wife and made her go keep an eye on Robin at the bar.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-51-22-10

Two dates in a row and Robin has to buy flirty potions for the “Have two sims flirty at the same time” requirement.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-55-46-96

Have a deep connection (or whatever) with 3 sims.  I think this is #2.  Allen Huntington III.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 21-56-47-39

Yep, he is number 2 for both requirements.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 22-09-38-55

Finally back at work and we need to solve another case.  Too bad she has to do some patrolling today.  She got the board set up and found a few clues, but we could not find the suspect after putting out the APB.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 22-20-45-65

Rachel tops her career and immediately quits.  Even though she is home, she is still grayed out, which is why she had to quit.  Now her portrait is fine, but she still has the options to set her work tone.  This save still needs to survive a long time dammit.

TS4_x64 2018-09-12 22-23-12-09

Allen meets up with Robin and he finally fills up the requirements for a strong relationship.  It just took a bit because Johnny kept following them and getting upset and then upsetting Allen.  There is no room in the sex club for Allen, otherwise she would not be doing this the hard way.

Then I closed out my game to fix Rachel.

It did not fix Rachel.

Right now, we still have these Aspirations left to do:
Outdoor Enthusiast – Rachel (3/4)
Public Enemy – Opal – last milestone (4/4): Witness the death of a sim.
Serial Romantic – Robin (3/4)
Friend of Animals – JUST saw that this wasn’t done.  I think MCCC controls strays, because I haven’t seen any yet.

We also have to max all the skills.  Left to do is:
Herbalism – Rachel – level 4
Photography – Robin – level 2

Top 10 Careers:
Doctor – Belladonna – done
Scientist – Victoria – done
Tech Guru – eSports Gamer – Petunia – done
Gardener – Botanist – Victoria – done
Culinary – Mixologist – Belladonna – done
Astronaut – Space Ranger – Victoria – done
Entertainer – Comedy – Belladonna – done
Business – Investor – Rachel – done
