Anyone up for a Round Robin ISBI?

Hello lovely Boolpropians, long time no see! :hugs:
I'm back :firecracker: and wondering if anyone would like to play a Round Robin ISBI? Rules would be very basic, since that's the way I like it .
Hopefully I can collect a really rad group~ :bounce:

I'm in!

The only issue would be me working full time - might take me a little time to finish my turn :)

Yaaaaay~~ :smooch:
Oh I totally understand! I'm actually just coming off 48hr weeks. (Seriously killed me!)
I'll close this thread on August 22nd, just in case anyone else would like to join us, would you like to make our founder?? :party:

I'm switching from 47hrs to 39hrs a week soon!

We could always accumulate new players as we go, too. Would you like to play the founding generation, or should I? :)

I can make the founder, any preferences? Gender? Hair/Skin/Eye colour?

Good point!! Hopefully we can collect some more players as we go along. But if not, we can totally just go back and forth. :party2:
As far as the founder goes, I'm happy with anything~ :heart: Usually the kookier the sim, the more I love them.
I'll snag first spot ONLY because I'm between jobs right now, and I don't know how busy I'll get when I start the new one in late August. So just gonna pump that first gen out.

Oh and the ruleset I've got for this is so basic, :fart: (feel free to add anything you'd like!)
-Heir is the only controllable sim.
-Obviously no money cheats 'cause that's no fun.
-Heir poll when the kiddlets become teens. As soon as the chosen one turns young adult, package the household up and plop them in the gallery.

HOLY COWS BY THE WAY, I love your stories Sam!! *fails to control the fangirl* I wasn't aware you ran the Superfrog livejournal, I obsessively read your TS2 stuff waaaaay back in the day. I just started your Rad Legacy and I plan to reread/catch up on some of your older stories soon too. :hearts:

Meet Eliana Nix, hopeful founder of this madness we're planning! She's a Good, Neat, Goofball of a sim, who wants a happy family. I tried to make her using only base game content (who knows what packs people have!) but I couldn't help but use the Outdoor Retreat hair!

My origin ID is: majesticnessie

Also, I'm really flattered that you like my stories!

Hi! I've never played an ISBI before but it sounds fun and I can read up on the rules. I'm also a pretty slow player, but I'd love to join. You guys want a third player? :)

The more, the merrier!

ISBIs are quite simple really - you only control one sim (your torch holder) and hope for the best! I completed a TS2 one with relatively few unexpected deaths!

Sam - SHE'S SUCH A CUTIE :candyheart: I've been playing for the last few days obsessively. Seems that everything that could go wrong with this save has (mod conflicts, reinstallation of games ugh) but I'm trying to finish my generation up because I've totally fallen in love with how her story is unfolding. Also Eliana's one of those doll simmys for me, I just love dressing her up.

Taube - YAY please join us!! :bounce: As Sam said the rules are very simple, it's a blast seeing Sims try to handle themselves. We're a laid back group, so feel free to take as long as you need to finish your generation. :angel1:

Thanks, guys. I'm excited. :D Maybe this will inspire me to play quicker since I won't be able to micromanage as much. :faint:

Eliana is really quite lovely, Sam, and blue is my favorite color so that doesn't hurt either. I hope some of those blue genetics continue for a while!

I'm looking forward to seeing what Eliana gets up to in your game, apocalypticautumn.

I'm so excited by all of this! I'm glad you guys like Eliana, too, and what she gets up to in your game, Autumn!

:D :D :D

Hello! I have also never played an ISBI or actually a round robin anything for that matter. This sounds like a lot of fun though so I would love to join in too if there is room for one more :)

p.s Eliana is so cute! :heart:

Can't commit to an earlier generation but a later one I could do! :D

Of course, Nichola! How late would you like your generation? I've assumed we'll be playing in the order we signed up, so currently it looks like this:

Autumn: 1st gen
Me: 2nd Gen
Taube: 3rd Gen
Emmalouise: 4th Gen

Is 5th gen late enough for you?? :)

Long story short: Poo has hit the fan in my life. I'm suffering through a highly complicated/highrisk pregnancy, made worse by a devastating car wreck. I've been in and out of the hospital, so there is no way I can finish my generation anytime soon. :cry: I have uploaded what I played way back in August and will have an heirpoll post tomorrow. Then it's Sam's turn!

Oh, Autumn. I'm so sorry to hear about all of that. I wish you good luck and good health with your pregnancy and recovery from the crash. :heart:
