The Tortall Legacy - Updated 9-8-2017

Postby Seera » September 7th, 2014, 4:14 pm

I started this legacy back in the summer of 2006 after being inspired by several other legacies out there. 8 years later and several manual recreations of the neighborhood later due to corruption and I plan on finishing this challenge.

Generations A through N are commentary and for the most part taken from their original source. References to Simmers who have left the community have been taken out as I was able to. Since I was an idiot and goofed on the naming system, gen Z will have the kids named with names that begin with the letter A. The challenge will end when they reach childhood.

I hope you enjoy the story!

Spoiler:
It's good to see the Tortalls all caught up, or at least to the point where plot starts going. I Caught up with them recently and Kyprioth is such a pretty boy :whome: Definitely going to be interesting to see what happens now that you're able to start plotting again!

I'm glad you kept writing! It really sucked when the Sims 2 site went down. I just gave up on my apocalypse. I though Chapter 2 was pretty rough
Spoiler:
Ive faced a lot of glitches but never had one where they lost their personalities! Good thing you had a back up.

I just read the updates from October on your wordpress...

Spoiler:
I'm so sad that Marek and Kelli passed away. The only bright side is that you're well over halfway to the finish line :)

Spoiler:
I remember finding/reading the Tortalls on the exchange back in its heyday. They're one of the reasons I found Boolprop :D. I finally made time to get caught up on them. The family is still going strong despite dancing with the enemy thieves guild. Kyprioth is on my favorite characters in the books. Well him and Dom because you can't not like Dom. :D I can't wait to see just how many kids Onua and Lana have.

Spoiler:
I just got caught up on the new wordpress chapters. It's so crazy that you're on Generation R (and possibly further considering that you were behind on the writing for a while there). How does it feel to only have 8 generations left?

And I've updated!

Chapter 17.2

@Pony
Spoiler:
Why do you think I had my simself marry the namesake of Dom?! I also really liked Kyprioth. It's why I had no second thoughts about making him the heir and not the namesake of the main character of the Protector of the Small series.


@Rex
Spoiler:
It feels amazing to be on the last stretch. But barring anything catastrophic that takes out my gaming rig and I'm unable to install Sims on my new one, I'm finishing this legacy. I've put too many literal tears into this legacy to give up on it now.


And I will try to do better at answering comments...
