It's back! For those TL;DR types -- the Quest will create one or more avatars, then try to find their future in a world populated by sim-humanoided versions of characters from various quests, as well as whatever pre-gens provided by Maxis who live in the neighbourhood. When Quest suggestions an action, the Sim will try to complete this action over the span of a couple of days and the results posted.

The Backstory

Due to shifting interests and a changing community, TGSims is being rebooted to 2.0 (although the original crew is still fine and alive in Pleasantview)

In the original we lost several members due to time and personal reasons -- or they just weren't that available. Plus even though the concept did include allowing the Quest community to suggest actions, it was just never really adopted. This time I'm hoping to incorporate more interactivity.
[/i]

So, let's get on to creating a TGCHAN SIM!

Rather than bicker about and argue over points to assign, you simply need to choose 2 parents for you sim.

In the picture about, we see that Sim Nem + Sim Anon44 = pretty boy that the game kept dressing like a girl until his teens. He eventually hooked up with Sim Riotmode's half-alien daughter and learned ninja skills.

These parents don't have to like each other, and it doesn't matter if they're man/woman, man/man or woman/woman.

Choose Your Parents. You will need 2, but their gender is irrelevant and you can mix and match.

1. One of the existing sims in the neighbourhood (you'll be presented with a list of existing sims)

2. A Quest character. They will be "SIM"ed to the best of my ability. If you wish to try to potentially romance that quest character, it's highly recommended you don't pick it as one of your parents.

3. A TGChan Community member or author. Smik isn't available because for accuracy I'd have to make him a widower and I'm not going through that again, not even in the Sims. You may choose his stand-in, Bob boB. Said community member should be active in some capacity on site.

4. If you really have to, a character from a piece of media. I'll do my best but no promises.


I'll then force your parents to live together and try to raise your sim. God only knows what happens from there.

You'll need to be more specific. Which Eastwood? Which Delli? You'll have to specify the origin. Heck, even if you meant Clint Eastwood you'd have to specify the actor or a character -- Dirty Harry is different from The Man With No Name is different from the actor.

How long have I slept?

I feel weak and weary and broken.

The stone is dark and empty and lifeless around me.

Ah, I can feel it. Yes. The gold.

Even this meagre collection can conduct the earth pulse and restore a tiny trickle of mana to me.

But it is hardly enough. Everything but my Heart is... numb. I need more, I need to build a hoard and restore myself.

And for that I need ...


Yo, Deem. Look down.

... or up, depending on your perspective.

Deem: What the hell?

DUNGEONEER DIVA DEEM HAS JOINED TGSIMS 2.0

Deem: WHO ARE YOU?

You can call me Narrator.

Deem: I don't like the sound of this.

You're not going to like the feel of it either, shortly. Look at it this way: You won't have to worry about a leaking heart and your body is not at all broken. But just a heads-up: we use Simoleons here, not gold... Earth Pulse is more fulfillment of your aspirations... but you can still manipulate your dungeon. Oh, and you're not so much living in a dungeon as a hole in the ground. OK HAVE FUN!

Deem: Things will never be right again. My head hurts.

For reasons unknown to either of them, Deem and Slinko decide to name you "Baby".

Genetically speaking, you are very neat, active, outgoing, extremely playful and only slightly a jerk, the last of which is mostly your mom's fault which is fine because you inherited her complexion.

Deem is relieved to know her Dungeon Heart didn't break but is rather perturbed about having a child, considering that the last she knew she was incapable of having a child.

Slinkoboy in the meantime considers the fact that he is a father of a child with Deem without actually ever getting a chance to "roll to seduce dungeon" to be "A Very Slinko Beginning" to his life as a sim.

Also your father has no attraction to your mother.

This is not especially unusual, except perhaps for a lack of taste on Slinko's part. However it may strain their parenting of you.

Given their general incompatibility, they came to an agreement and Deem told Slinko he could live out in a shed she constructed while she grew her dungeon.

Deem was not quite used to this whole "above ground dungeon" aspect but her powers seemed to more or less work the same.

Deem had SIMOLEONS to acquire and empower her earth pulse! Or aspiration points. Whatever.

DECISION TIME!
CHOOSE YOUR TODDLER DESTINY!

As a toddler, you have very little control over your life. As a sim, left to their own devices your parents are about as bright as the average toddler, but that's the point of the Sims because if they were smarter it wouldn't be fun.

As Quest Suggestors, you have a degree of control over your parents and can shape your toddler life.

Were you:

1. Left mostly up to the whims and mercies of Sim AI?
2. More or less looked after by Deem, who sought to make you a practical minion?
3. Looked after mostly by Slinkoboy, whom Deem used as live-in babysitting? Slinkoboy was more focused in making you an interesting character.
4. Raised equally by both parents?

ALSO:

Do you have a favourite toy?
A. Shapes
B. Xylophone
C. Severed robot rabbit head.
D. Blocks
E. Drawing
F. Let the kid pick for himself.
>>
No. 917325 ID: 8d26c4

(I should note here that new sims may still be generated if you wish by suggesting more genetic pairings as long as I have some vague idea who they are. Even though Deem and Slinkoboy are parents, they're not actually a couple and are subject to the whims of Quest)

Congratulations! Baby has managed to reach CHILD STAGE without being taken away by a social care worker! This is mostly because after re-reading Dungeoneer, Deem's interactions with Alkaline meant she'd be a much better mother figure than my original "ha ha baby=minion" gag would allow.

Slinkoboy helped, teaching Baby how to talk. Deem taught Baby how to potty. Nobody considered teaching Baby how to walk to be very important so Baby taught himself upon becoming a child.

Baby has reached Rank 6 Creativity! Now far too old to play with a child's xylophone, Baby has graduated on towards more exotic musical instruments.

While Deem is loath to spend her precious [strikeout]gold[/strikeout] simoleons that she could be using to expand her dungeon, she does recognize the value of increasing Baby's levels.

Deem: I recognize that my dungeon spawn -- which I still can't believe spawned from my heart without fracturing it further -- is a potentially powerful minion. Also Baby has only Rank C Creativity, not ... whatever you thought it was.

An immature... Deem-spawn? Marked for greatness because of Deem.

Deem: For a child, Baby has remarkable creativity but I get a sense that it's not his true passion. Still, this creativity could be exploited to create more simoleons for my hoard. I could set him to painting -- I understand that painting is one of the few ways for children and teenagers to generate a respectable income. Or I could buy him a musical instrument allowed by children and eventually set him to busking. Alternatively I could invest in some of his other skills and as I understand it, better prepare him for the free university education offered by this world -- but that will only help me if he moves back home afterwards. To be perfectly frank, if I were him I'd be more interested in setting up my own dungeon so perhaps it's best not to count on his returning my investment.

I suppose we might decide on something for Slinkoboy as well; he does well raising toddlers and the laws of this world require that Baby have adult supervision until he is a teenager so he might be useful as a minder. Or we could send him out to acquire a job and contribute Simoleons to the hoard, but the options of painting are open to him as well.

We need to decide on an investment for the time being however. They're not going to be contributing much until we do.

Baby has been painting for Deem a lot. For awhile, it was fun. Baby liked painting. Baby liked raising his Creativity.

But is this all Baby wants to do? Please Deem? What if Baby wants a pet? Wants to rollerskate? Slinkodaddy seems to be perfectly happy just endlessly painting for Deem, but let's face it: Slinkodaddy is also Deem's little bitch and he's not even getting laid.

Not that Baby thinks in that direction yet, Baby is just a child. But he isn't as interested in painting lately.

What should Baby do?

A. Baby should bug Deem for a pet.
B. Baby should stop being Deem's bitch and go play video games on her computer when she's not looking.
C. Baby should actually try making friends. Baby currently doesn't have any friends, or even enemies. The school bullies would try to taunt him by calling him Baby, but that's his actual name. First it frustrates them, but then they realize that's his ACTUAL NAME and even they just kinda pity him and leave him alone as a result (plus they like his hot mom).
D. Baby should listen to his mother and keep working on his paintings and anything ELSE that will generate some cash. And then once he figures out how to make that cash, he should quietly start building up his own hoard in secret.
E. Baby would like to explore the world. Explore new places, discover new things.
F. Baby needs to start taking more pride in his appearance. He might not have the urges yet but he's snooped around in Slinko's Underbed Library and his Internet history and while he doesn't understand WHAT yet, he knows he's missing out on SOMETHING and he'd better get ready now.
G. Suck it up, Baby. Keep painting until they're actually worth something.

Sadie McArthur, whom Baby met once, has decided to just walk into the Dungeon and use the toilet uninvited. Baby's relationship with her is 20/100 -- improper for uninvited toilet usage. Then again, clearly she likes Baby enough to make the trip.

The little girl has become unresponsive to attempts to get her to play, because it is past time when she should be out on her own.

Second intruder is also trapped within the dungeon. Secondary intruder is also unresponsive.

The World of Sims 2 forces all doors to become unlocked to guests who are supposed to leave, but it does not save them from the walls sealing themselves shut. Still, at some point even Baby will have to leave for school and Deem's not impressed with his antics. (Actually she is impressed, she just doesn't approve of his manipulating the dungeon without her)

In the meantime, the intruders weep for their release.

Wat do?

1. Release intruders; they will not die before a family member will need to leave.

2. Attempt to accost intruders. This may not work; Deem's mana is limited.

Deem is shocked that you would kill a child, intruder or no. She releases both captives and they go on their way.

Baby: Mom...

Deem winces at the word. She considers complaining but last time she did that you reminded her that no matter how she wants to put it, you share elements of her and Slinko and you are a child, therefore you are her child, therefore she is your mom.

Deem: Baby. What you did was WRONG. The dungeon is MINE, and you STOLE that from me. Also trapping a little girl could have had severe consequences for us.

Baby nods and continues painting.

Baby: Can I have a pet?

Deem is stunned for a few moments.

Deem: ... NO. No, no, no. You can't even handle making friends with a child, I don't want to even know what you'd do with the responsibility of another living thing.

Baby: Can I run away from home?

[b]Deem[.b]: That's not something you ask... No, you can't run away from home. Literally. The guard will just return you.

Deem ponders briefly she is to blame for your actions, or if this is the result of some influence of Slinko's.

I'm kidding. She IMMEDIATELY blames Slinko for this and informs him she's cancelled her decision to give him proper living quarters in the dungeon, or a bathroom extension to his shack. Slinko responds by saying he wants to be better at cleaning for her.

Deem sighs and wonders at what point she lost control of everything. She's not smaller than everyone else and still no one properly respects her authority. She feels that she deeply misses a group of people she has no memory of. That doesn't make any sense so she consoles herself by buying a pickup truck.

The next day, Baby brings a new girl home from school, named Sadie Garth. Dang it Sims2, there are more names besides "Sadie".

Baby: Mom, a new Sadie followed me home from school! Can we keep her?

Deem considers taking advantage of her new flesh body and begin drinking.

New Sadie attempted to follow Baby right into the bathroom and he had to shoo her out so he could do his business.

Wat do?

1. Obtain New Sadie. Since Deem won't let you misuse the Dungeon to abduct her, you'll have to accost her instead (make her your friend)

2. Focus on obtaining Old Sadie. Since Deem won't let you misuse the Dungeon to abduct her, you'll have to accost her instead (make her your friend). Baby is still thinking about her and obtaining her will earn mana.

3. Accost both Sadies.

In one of my games of Sims 2, one of Nem's children decided she would befriend all the generally disliked jerks of the neighbourhood and have them move in with her. This included the Vampire Lord who got the crap beat out of him by an old lady. Twice. And he had NO friends other than Nem's kid. It was pretty hilarious, especially when the vampire then got abducted by aliens and impregnated with twins. One of which turned out to be an even bigger jerk.

That is when I discovered Sims is even more fun when you create your own bizarre missions.

It's time for Baby to make some TEEN LIFE CHOICES!

Due to Quest's suggestions for OBTAIN PUPPY and OBTAIN SADIES, Baby is now of the FAMILY ASPIRATION.

But that is not enough! Baby is no longer a child, and Deem thinks that as her spawn he should be able to refine his own appearance. Besides, she needs to get out and meet people in order to secure additional funding for her Dungeon -- she might as well take him with her and do some clothes shopping.

PLEASE SUGGEST SOME ACTIONS:

1. Should Baby change his name to "Babe", stay with "Baby" or choose something else entirely?

2. What kind of fashion should Baby wear? Suggest something general, such as "Goth", "Conservative", "Punk", "Pirate", "Clown", "Nerd". You may also choose "Random".

3. Should Baby change his hair and accessories to:
A. Match his outfit?
B. Pick stuff at random until he's happy with it?
C. Leave it the same
