And we’re back! Belladonna comes home and starts up the last club meeting while Opal heads off to work.
It takes a few hours because she they were only gaining 2 points and it was just boring.
Opal brought home a promotion.
Belladonna did quit her level 8 career to join the Entertainer career.
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.
Belladonna has now greeted and had two Selvadoradian type friendly conversations with every single person above.
Which is what was needed for maxing this.
Nothing new to report except this is a new tomb for me and I have been doing this adventure for eons it seems like.
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.
Then she backtracked to town to assemble relics, but had to refine crystals first.
Caleb and Victoria are great-grandparents to Theo and Emmalyn.
Now it’s back to the tomb.
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.
Opal: Mother, why?
Belladonna: Remember all the club gatherings you have been ruining lately? Consider this your punishment.
Opal then starts singing about her dark cloud friend.
Robin does get a promotion finally. Also, it has been 4 days and her aspiration still says 11/14.
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.
There are some bugs to gather up.
A few hours later, she heads to the deep woods.
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.
The bugs are snow covered (big surprise), but the Dragon Dragonfly is my favorite of them all. I am so glad I spotted him.
Rachel then makes her way to the hermit area.
Roasts some beetles.
Eats 10 plants and ends up with every disease in the world.
Greets and befriends the hermit.
Has a snack (not the hermit).
Finds more bugs.
The vacation will end in 4 hours, so Rachel made a snowpal and then heads home.
She is forced to read the herbalism book because she doesn’t have ingredients to practice on the grill.
And she makes it to level 3 (from level 2) and bolts.
Opal: Yes, I need to book a trip. K thanx.
Opal knows that the best way to get rid of a curse is to pay money to the statue.
Another tomb done, and yes she did get caught on fire again.
Use the relic 2/5 times.
Opal: Can you curse my mother in retaliation?
Bella refines more gems for her other relics.
Opal: MOM! Stop!
Belladonna; Last time, I promise.
Opal: I’m going to make your life miserable.
Bella: Too late.
Opal: Yes, curse everyone else! Wooo!
One more trip and Bella will be free!
Opal has done all her mean interactions and her skeleton moodlet has said 0 minutes for 8 hours. Robin is still at 11/14.
I even found out why Rachel hasn’t had a promotion in 7 days. Whoops.
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.
She told 3 comedy routines to her daughters. Yes, Opal is STILL a skeleton.
At least she’s happy about the whole world right now.
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.
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.
I really hope I load into the game with a normal Opal.
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.
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.
Them standing around chatting means it was some sort of holiday. I’m sure they all got it completed.
Belladonna heads to the jungle one last time.
Now that we know to keep her logic skill up, Rachel got a promotion.
Another one bites the dust!
And a bee attack on her way out.
Back home, Robin has a shit load done on her newest case.
The suspect was apprehended.
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.
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.
Victoria invites Opal on an outing and we drag the whole family along. The goal is for Opal to watch someone die.
Robin’s goal is to officially start her Serial Romantic aspiration.
Opal joins the whole group in basketball, but sadly no one is dying.
The bartender is an elder and I started to plan out his death.
But Opal has to befriend him first.
That ends when she was to upset about her stink to go on stargazing with him.
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.
She also bites the bullet and starts pregnancy #1.
She tries to line up another guy.
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.
Belladonna finally goes to work after several days off and gets her promotion.
The next day is New Year’s, so no work for anyone.
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.
Caleb walked in and saw Robin’s tummy and blew a gasket.
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.
They took date #2 to the lounge to get away from the disapproving Caleb.
Who then called his wife and made her go keep an eye on Robin at the bar.
Two dates in a row and Robin has to buy flirty potions for the “Have two sims flirty at the same time” requirement.
Have a deep connection (or whatever) with 3 sims. I think this is #2. Allen Huntington III.
Yep, he is number 2 for both requirements.
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.
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.
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
